  • Reduced the amount of materials obtained when deconstructing stolen goods.
    • You will now obtain a single material of the type the item is constructed from.
    • This change does not affect inspiration gains, style item drops, trait item drops, or the amount of materials obtained when deconstructing laundered goods.
  • Fixed an issue where the Soul-Shriven gear found in the Wailing Prison could be deconstructed to gain Azure Plasm. This was unintentional, and is no longer the case.
    • You can still obtain Azure Plasm from deconstructing other Soul-Shriven style gear (such as certain weapons found in the Maw of Lorkhaj Trial), or by completing Dark Anchors.
  • Adjusted a small number of Survey Reports to ensure they lead to the intended number of rich harvest nodes.
