Her passion for dressing up has been reduced to the minimum.
  • During the Rushlight event Irovetti addressed Valerie even though she wasn't in an active party with the player. Resolution: fixed.
  • Tristian was talking during the dialogue with Tsanna at the "Secluded Lodge" area even though he wasn't in the player's party. He did the same during the dialogue with Eimar at Rushlight. Resolution: fixed. Taught the telepath some basic eavesdropping manners.
