Accoring to Steve Moret in a <a href="http://www.troikachronicles.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=9">recent interview</a> with the <a href="http://www.troikachronicles.com/">Troika Chronicles</a>, the 2nd Temple of Elemental Evil patch is about two or so weeks away. <blockquote><b>Q. </b><i>What is the current status of the second patch? Have you already started testing the patch?</i> <b>A. </b>We're on our 8th beta revision right now and are kinda getting happy with how it's turning out. There is still about another weeks worth of work that needs to be done. <b>Q. </b><i>What bugs have been fixed in the second patch and are there somethings you want to fix in future patches?</i> <b>A. </b>Lots of prototype changes (size fixes for items, value corrections, weapon type changes), a few magic items were incorrect (e.g. Jaer's Spheres of fire) those are fixed, we've revamped the random number generator, lots of quests have been updated/fixed, a bracer stacking bug has been fixed, a criticals not confirming on a matching AC bug was fixed, some strength bonus bugs with 2handed weapons have been fixed, a bug where magic projectiles helped your melee was fixed, the IO subsystem has been abstracted out so people can write tools that work with the game easier, and a few more miscellaneous bugs have been fixed. <b>Q. </b><i>Can you give us an ETA of the 2nd patch?</i> <b>A. </b>Originally April 1, but that came and went. I'd say sometime mid next week, maybe the 14th or at the latest the 19th of April.</blockquote> Here's hoping Troika have learned something and won't need to patch Bloodlines so much.
