Highlights

Gameplay

  • Citizens of Freeport and Exiles using evac spells in Antonica will now be transported close to the Thundering Steppes.
  • A number of enhancements were made to help improve the performance of servers during raids.
  • Deathfist Citadel:
    • The Deathfist orcs have just finished completely remodeling their citadel in the Orcish Wastes!
    • New challenges and riches await groups of stalwart adventurers within the Deathfist Citadel! This change brings a few new faces to the Orcish Wastes that are anxiously seeking the help of adventurers just like you. Entrance to the citadel can be had via the old sewer entrance or by removal of the gate keeper, Vigo Cerebus. Once slain, the gate remains unlocked for those wishing passage. Additionally, several old quests in the dungeon have been retooled and have had their rewards altered to reflect the newest item rules.

But wait, there’s more!

  • New armor sets can be crafted by using the Blood Iron Forge within the citadel. Crafters interested in creating these new pieces of armor should keep an eye out for new recipes and raw materials that can be found throughout the dungeon.
