In addition, transporter messaging changes are now widely available.

There will also be regular options to make this change via merchants on FWI.

With the previous release allowing for GALD merchants to alter messaging, you may also use an Alteration Scroll to do this. The services would cost 300 PPs, the same as a standard service. All the venue-specific exceptions still apply.
