Patch Notes: Build 6682 Hotfix

Carbine's got another hotfix coming tonight (Build 6682), it's not a big patch by any means but it does cover some pretty important bugs, like the constant crashing that some users reported having. The servers will be shutting down May 16th at 12:30AM PDT / 3:30AM EDT / 8:30AM UTC to apply the hotfix, the servers are expected to be down for approximately one hour. 

They've also covered a lot of bugs regarding their Hold to Continue Casting setting. Hold to Continue Casting is a relatively new feature and it good it see it get fleshed out and working correctly before launch. Finally, one of the worst bugs that cropped up lately, when nameplates would disappear or not show up, sounds like it was fixed. You can catch the patch notes on the official site here, but the entire set of notes is below as well.
