Live Hot Fix

Posted by John Thornhill | 2019 May 03 10:45 -0400 GMT

We'll be extending the Rites of Spring event and realm point bonuses until May 14th as a thank you for your patience and understanding with the recent downtimes.

    • The flame mechanic has been removed.

    • The target bonus level for these weapons is now around level 35, instead of levels 20-25.
    • Weapons with %damage and %range bonuses are now applied vs all targets.
    • More weapon options have been added to cover all classes.
  • Several issues in the Stonehenge Barrows dungeon have been fixed:

    • High Priestess Ywera's remains now only drop from High Priestess Ywera.
    • Albino Grugner now has a chance to drop accessories and weapons like the other named bosses in the dungeon.
