HighlightsEdit

Claim WindowEdit

With the popularity of account entitlements, we've decided to improve the in-game delivery method of items associated with said entitlements. Whether you have the plethora of items that came with the Collector's edition or an adorable vanity pet, we wanted to make it easier to claim your items! What this means is that item delivery for new characters or purchases will no longer go through in-game email. Instead a new Claim Window interface has been added that can be accessed via /claim or via the Account Entitlements button on the Main Menu. All of your items will be accessible in this new window and can be claimed at any time. No more expiring emails! But that's not all! Accidentally lost your Trusty Mount? We've got you covered. Included in the Claim Window is the ability for characters to 'reset' specific items if they have lost or misplaced the original. Certain items, typically currencies and 'charged' items cannot be reset via this window. You can tell if a claimed item can be reset as the button will only light up for items that allow this functionality. This new method of delivery will be used for all new deliveries to characters. Characters who have been sent items in the mail previously will have those items shown as 'claimed' and any emails with items in them will continue to be accessible until they expire. Items that have been sent via email previously will be able to be 'reset' if the item allows it.

Armor Set ChangesEdit

The Renown Rank and level requirements for several item sets have been reduced to allow players to use them sooner in their careers. With the new ranks for the above sets, a new armor set has been added to fill in the gap between Warlord and Sovereign.

Scenario ShakeupEdit

The battle has shifted! With the advent of 1.4.1, the lineup of the Scenario offering will be changing. A number of old scenarios are making their return, some are retiring for the moment, and others are shifting tiers. For a full list of the new line-up, see the RVR section.

OptimizationsEdit

As part of our ongoing focus on giving players the best possible experience, we've made a number of behind-the-scenes optimizations to the server and client code to increase performance. General Changes & Bug Fixes General Changes & Bug Fixes

  • The time and duration of the penalty to Renown gain for repeatedly killing the same enemy has been adjusted. Players will now be able to procure Renown more often from their enemies with less time between kills needed to be effective.
  • We've made some adjustments to the renown bonus that is available for players that have the Progression pack. This means the curve for the Tier 4 levels will increase slightly and it will now continue into the early post-80 levels and ramp down to normal.
  • The AFK timer for Open World areas has been increased from two minutes to three minutes.

Realm versus Realm Realm versus Realm

Open World CampaignEdit

  • Adjusted warcamps to ensure that the OrvR tracker shows up in all zones properly.

The Packmaster cannot use this on himself. - Thwap!Thwap!!Thwap!!! now places a HoT on any friendly target, except himself. The strength of the HoT is still dependant on the number of Overconfidence charges the Packmaster has built up: - 1 - about 3% of the target's max health per tick. - 2 - about 4% of the target's max health per tick. - 3 - about 6% of the target's max health per tick. - 4 - about 8% of the target's max health per tick. - 5 - about 10% of the target's max health per tick.
