Slime Mold Juice

I’m sorry that I didn’t post on website about Tangaria internal changes for a while; the work going constantly and you could see the progress in GitHub… As always – I had a drop in time to gather everything for website and postponed writing patchnotes for a while. But I’ll do better next time – I’ve decided to ditch translations of patchnotes in Russian for each update, so from now on informing about changes will become more fun for me 🙂

    – Black numenorean req. 35 → 25 lvl for ESP lvl
