Patch Notes for June 15, 2011

Here are the patch notes from this morning's game update (as posted by Piestro on the EQ Forums):

*** Highlights ***

- Mount control has been tightened up considerably. When using a mount you will reach top speed much faster than before, and stop even faster. While in combat, the movement is still tighter than before, but not as responsive as when out of combat.
- All mounts available in the marketplace are now Heirloom. This is retroactive to those already purchased.
- Players that go linkdead while part of a raid are now kicked from both the raid and their group.
