The patch notes lately have just been amazing. Other than the 10 minutes on the buff rework, everything seems to be very well thought out and shows a great attention to the new player experience and details in general. Great work dev team!

I fixed this last night; "a claw earring" should drop again.

YES, thank you dev-cole, "a claw earring" are now "finally" dropping (cuz they never really did, didn't they ? ;) )

And now if you would be so kind as to plan a fix for the remaining step so we could turn those shiny new tokens in :
