We just released a small update that includes two main changes.
First, we've tweaked the styling of the event log to make it easier to read. We've switched to one of the new fonts we're using elsewhere in the interface and made the text a smidge larger to boot. In addition, the first appearance of each character's name in an event is now color-coded to match the chat logs and party roster. You can now tell at a glance which events affected your character and which didn't.
Second, we've modified the quest selection buttons available from the quest map to indicate the status of each quest; this is something a couple of you suggested earlier. If you've just failed a quest, its button will be labeled "Retry Quest"; if you've completed a quest in the past, it will be labeled "Redo Quest"; and the rest of the time it'll be the usual "Begin Quest". This is determined on a per-character basis, so members of a party that just came together won't necessarily see the same thing.
These might not be the last changes we make in these areas before releasing the game on Steam, so let us know what you think.
