Patch Notes

Known Issues
  • Quest - The MapMaker is currently bugged for some players between the two narratives and will not let them complete the quest.
General

Level cap has been raised to 35! Players will now be able to increase their characters' level to 35, adding 2 more points to their ability trees.

New Downloadable Content System! The overall storage size should be reduced for most users. Following this client update, all future client updates should only download a small amount of new content instead of redownloading all content. New users should be able to get into the game much more quickly on initial install. Most of the required content will be downloaded in the background while the user completes the early tutorial levels.

Players will now be able to view a list of the raids that are in the game directly from the user interface. Players can view each raid to see its valor type then join those raids directly from this list. Guild raids will also be indicated on this new interface.

We have greatly improved the combat text in the game in order improve the clarity and visual placement for the user. This includes streamlining effects based on their target and if they are positive or negative effects. These changes should not have any impact on the speed at which combat can be completed.

Emperor Trask's Grip on Fellmarsh is failing! Quests located in Fellmarsh have gone through an overhaul and a majority of quests have had their objectives reduced and their rewards increased.

Guardian Valor is a new tier of valor that is rewarded for completing new raids and is used to purchase the new Tier 18 PVE gear.

Feeling lost? Quest Finder is a new tracking system that helps players find where they need to go to complete their current quests.

  • Conversion of Champion Valor to Guardian Valor available in Majerio's Shop.
  • Combat Screen Shake can now be turned on and off through the options menu.
  • Sha'lyn, the Spider Queen will now drop Tier 6 red shards instead of Tier 5 red shards.
  • Updated the Black Market with items such as potion recipes and Tier 7 gems.
  • It seems your doom wasn’t really impending! Removed "Impending Doom" from all non-onslaught raid encounters where it still existed.
  • Hunted in the Mists has had it’s wave numbers and valor payouts changed to be aligned with the progression curve of the new content.
  • Invite Friends button has moved to the Mucky Duck Inn.
  • Added new icons for in-game currency sales.
  • Added Tier 6 lockboxes to Majerio’s Shop.
  • Added Gold Shield pricing to Tier 6 Gems in Majerio’s Shop.

  • New Monsters have been preparing for your arrival and others that you may just stumble upon!
  • New Dungeons will have players encounter the half-dragon, Yodrin and Caliban himself.
  • New Raids will pit players against the threat of Caliban… and might even pit you against a new rumored threat!
  • New Tier 18 Gear and Weapons are available in order to prepare for what may lie ahead after Caliban is dealt with.
  • New Tier 7 Gems have been added to Majerio's Shop to help enhance your hero's attributes.
  • New Tier 6 gem shards have been added to dungeons.
  • New Guardian Tier leaderboards!
  • Have Karnak's Ring? After Caliban is defeated you might want to keep an open ear for any new developments regarding this heavily sought after artifact!
  • Face a new mysterious threat emerging and earn a powerful ring. Beware, this is only for the most seasoned adventurers!
PVP
  • Minimum level to challenge another player in the Coliseum with gold shields is now level 20.
Bug Fixes
  • Heavenly Wave now correctly decreases Impending Doom’s duration.
  • Addressed an issue with Incursion Portals where certain waves mistakenly would not drop flux.
  • Addressed an issue where obtaining Raja or Pimm from the Lockbox would not trigger the Heroic Feats.
  • Adjusted pricing for Tier 8 PvP 2 Handed Weapon.
  • Adjusted defense value for Tier 16 PVP Light Shield.
  • Addressed an issue where Masters Rank #1 was showing #0.
  • Addressed an issue where the "Get Ready!" message in the Coliseum would get stuck after finding a match.

You do know there are other countries and time zones, right?

Doing it at this time allows max support for any issues encountered as Venan will be fully staffed (and not half asleep due to it being 3am local), and means that it'll be (hopefully) ready when you all finish work at 5-6pm.
In Europe, we'll have no BoH for the evening, when many of us play, and a lot of us won't see it until the following day. But y'know, we don't take that as a conspiracy - we're just happy to see the update.

Looking forward to the notes!

Whatever time of the day it is, there's always someone on the planet asleep! So inconsiderate. And Elijah56 is so furious he can't even type. :lol:
