PVP/ MASSIVE PVP
  • This update introduces a new type of crafting resources. These new resources can be found in Border Kingdoms, Cimmerian End. The resources are used to build and repair battlekeeps and player shave a chance to drop them when they die in PvP. The recipes required can be found in the NPC camps located in this playfield.
  • The guards in the Traveler's Camps in the Border Kingdoms will no longer assist players when they get attacked.
  • Removed some free prey level ranges from dungeons that did not need them.
  • A low level player attacking a high level is now a free kill for about 60 seconds, three times longer than before.

PvP Minigames
  • The minigame signup interface has been enhanced. It now shows the four different minigames players can sign up for. It shows how many players are currently signed up for that particular minigame (players in the same tier as the player, regardless of apprenticeship), and allows players to sign up for any of the possible minigames (whichever starts first).
  • The level ranges of the PvP minigames have been adjusted. Level 80 players will now only face other level 80 players.
  • Annihilate Opposing Team: You will no longer get the capture message if you walk into the north or south quarter before the match starts.
  • Annihilate Opposing Team: The healing point in the middle of the playfield should heal anyone that stands on top of it.
  • Annihilate Opposing Team: If your totem is destroyed you no longer receive Shield of the Risen.
  • Annihilate Opposing Team: The health of the resurrection totem has increased.
  • Capture the Skull: Renamed the ‘Flag' to ‘Skull'.
  • Capture the Skull: Reduced the amount of skull captures to win from 5 to 3.
  • Capture the Skull: It is no longer possible to use Last Stand while carrying the skull.
  • Capture the Skull, Blood Ravine: The resurrection points have been moved to the bottom of the bases to make it easier to capture the flag.
  • When one of the sides leaves the minigame, this should no longer always result in a tie.
  • More than 11 players in a minigame will no longer expand the GUI incorrectly - the overlay will hide instead.
  • When declining to join a minigame after the minigame has started, you are no longer flagged as coward.
  • You now actually have 30 seconds to decline/accept to join a minigame when it has started.
  • Totem Torrent - Various gameplay changes have been made to improve the flow and speed of this minigame. The optional resurrection points have been removed. The capture areas have been moved into the north and south buildings (to the location of the old resurrection points). If you capture one of these new areas, your totem will be much more durable.
  • Killing pets will no longer increment your kill count.
  • Hallowed Vaults: Extended collision of braziers to prevent players from becoming stuck in between them and pillars.
  • Capture the Skull: Shield of the Risen should now be removed the moment you pick up the skull.
  • Capture the Skull: Players should now receive a message after the flag resets.
  • Hallowed Vaults: It's no longer possible to jump back the ledge coming from the flag rooms.

PvP Notoriety
  • Murderer Pathfinders no longer give you two identical travel options.
  • Removed all cooldowns and added some XP to all Redemption quests.
  • You or your pets will not do splash damage to neutral NPCs anymore.
  • Being killed will not remove the killer from diminishing returns.

  • The criminal buff should no longer be refreshed by attacking a low level opponent and then switching to a higher level target.
  • Players can now get the other two redemption quests from Flanna in Field of the Dead, after leaving the dialog.
  • Player's nametags will now be colored grey if killing them would give you murderpoints. If a gray player attacks you their name will turn red, indicating justified self-defense.
  • When attacking a target with melee or spells, the damage will no longer splash to nearby targets, unless the main target will give murderpoints, you have previously attacked the splashed target, or the splashed target will not give you murderpoints.
  • You can now attack players 8 levels lower than you without getting murder points or criminal status.

Massive PvP
  • The system to sign up to siege a battlekeep has been enhanced. The guilds that want to participate in a siege will now declare war on each other to win the right to lay siege. During this war, the attacking guilds gain points for killing members of other guilds that have signed up, and lose points if they are killed by the defending guild. As in the old system, the guild that earns the right to attack will have their points reset, but the points of non-qualifying guilds will roll over to the next war.
  • After a siege has finished, the server will no longer schedule a battle during a time that already has a battle scheduled.
  • Siege participants will no longer incorrectly get teleported out.
  • The Massive PvP time window can now be opened without being in a guild and can be opened from any playfield.

  • You can no longer interact with NPCs of a battlekeep after you lose it to another guild.
  • Border Kingdoms, Cimmerian End now has some additional resurrection points.
  • It is no longer possible to heal siege weapons.
  • The siege timer should now display correctly.
  • Players who enter a siege after the battle has begun should now see the score update.
  • The locations of the attacker resurrection points have been slightly adjusted. Keep in mind that they are still not right next to the actual siege camps.
  • The siege weapons graphics have been improved.
  • You will no longer lose the resurrection point of your keep when attacking another battlekeep in the same playfield.
  • Tweaked an area near the stairs in battlekeep Burnheim to allow players to walk over it instead of jump.
  • If a battlekeep becomes vulnerable but no attackers signed up to attack it, it should no longer be vulnerable for the siege duration. Instead, the vulnerability window will automatically be re-scheduled as if the defense had completed successfully.
  • The siege score window should correctly reappear after each teleport/death, but will not remain onscreen if you leave the playfield.
  • Lacheish Plains: City owners should now properly receive their city resurrection points.
  • Sturmgarde battlekeep now has improved wall defenses.

  • This update introduces a new type of crafting resources. These new resources can be found in Border Kingdoms, Cimmerian End. The resources are used to build and repair battlekeeps and player shave a chance to drop them when they die in PvP. The recipes required can be found in the NPC camps located in this playfield.

  • You should now always see the correct "Tradeskills" category for quests in your quest journal.

  • Chopping wood should now take the same amount of time as other harvesting skills.
  • If you unlearn a tradeskill, the cooldown should now always be removed.
  • Gemcutting: After creating a gem, you should now always have your quest updated, without zoning first. You should also always be able to create gems without zoning first.
