Highlight: Live Event Equipment Slot Edit
Players will now see a new equip slot on their paper-doll. This is the "Event" slot made for items specifically given out in the Live Events. Please note, this is not a retroactive change and old Live Event rewards cannot go in the Event slot. The first item that can be used in this new equipment slot will be obtainable from The Wild Hunt Live Event. Also, as part of this change, Live Event Public Quest loot bags will now have a new decay timer.
Highlight: RvR Token System - Smart Drops Edit
The RvR Token System has been updated. When a player is killed, the system will now be intelligently aware of the number of participants that may be rolling on the items which the players will drop. The chance a Medallion or Crest will drop will now scale relative to the number of players involved in a kill, helping to bring the rate at which participants receive Medallions or Crests to the appropriate Rank, regardless of the number of players involved in a kill.
Highlight: Warlord Public Quest Reward Change Edit
The Warlord PQ has transitioned from a 48-man open encounter to a 24-man instanced encounter. As all components have been scaled, the number of bags dropped has been reduced to reflect 24 participants, rather than 48. The Warlord encounter will now drop a maximum of four Gold Bags, instead of eight.
