Release date: 09-08-2017

Campaigns and Siege:

Added a new Hunger Shard that has no weapon additive stats for feeding Banewood Trees. 
Upped the spawn rate of hunger shards in POI chests.
Adjusted the size of the Banewood sapling.
Fixing backwards ramp pieces in the beachhead.
Fixed castle gatehouse s08v01 and construction stages to line up correctly on grid.


Removed the camera zoom while harvesting.
Client should now be properly locked down while "drinking the poison" to change archetypes so that they can't move around or dodge, causing problems with the UI.
When a respawning-contents chest spawns nothing, it should auto-restart the respawn timer.
WhileYouWereAway window now should only pop up after the lobby appears. If skills are not populating the window will close itself.
