MULTICORE RENDERER BETA
* Fixed an issue causing the Multicure Renderer to be slower than intended.
* We've disabled the experimental multicore renderer when using the low-quality renderer.


GENERAL

DUNGEONS AND RAIDS

MIND OF MADNESS
* Fixed Dominance leaderboards for Lady Justice, Dark Genesis and Arisen Arak.

PVP AND WARFRONT

CONQUEST
* The reward chest in Conquest will no longer give Void Stones or Hearts of the Frozen.
* Instead, they now grant Abyssal Crusader Marks by default, with a small chance to instead get a Warmongers Mark.
* PVP weekly quests have had their reward package increased to include 5000 Favor in addition to everything else they currently reward.


ITEMS
* Battlemasters Brew now stacks to 99.
* Fixed an issue that would cause tanks with Tier 3 relic weapons to damage enemies around their corpse when they were resurrected.
