* Ancalagon (Black Nightfury) now has 12 million shieldbank, down from 20 (per phase). 2 of the guards he spawns during the fight now have 3 million shieldbank, down from 5. This change was made because we’ve noticed that the fight is fairly dull and would often take a very long time to complete, especially since we changed the way the Sniper Analyzer can be used.
* Timotheus the Red now has 10 million shieldbank, up from 3 (per phase). 2 of the guards he spawns during the fight now have 1.5 million shields, up from 500k, another 2 have 3 million shields, up from 1 million. This change was made because we’ve noticed that when Timotheus spawns and is found it takes very little time for player to kill him because they completely ignore the boss fight mechanics and just burst Timotheus down ASAP. This beef in bank will hopefully make player follow the proper fight mechanics and with it, buy some time for other contenders to reach the location and fight over the kill.

Client performance improvement
* Some minor performance improvement when rendering the galaxy map and loading new textures.

Please note that since the patchbot cannot delete, only add, old install gain less memory improvement. To get the full memory usage improvement on an old client, delete the cache and Content folder then run patchbot.exe to redownload the cleaner version.
