Update Notes: Thursday May 24, 2018

SEEDS OF VENGEANCE
This game update is packed full of new content, including a return to the Shard of Hate where solo players, groups, and raiders will all be confronted with new bosses, puzzles, and locations within the plane that have never been seen before! There will also be new expert dungeons, a revamped item examine window, new missions, and more!

GENERAL
  • Fixed more issues related to Aerakyn and kilt tints.
  • Deity Attributes will now be shared account wide. After logging into a character, that characters current level of Deity Attributes will be written to an account flag. When logging into another character on the account, the level of the account flag will be compared to the characters Deity Attribute, and either update the account flag if the characters attribute is higher, or update the characters attribute if the recorded account flag is higher.
ETHEREAL DROPS
Summer is here! Well, almost, but Ethereals are here! Upon completing Planes of Prophecy heroic missions you will also be granted an Ethereal reward roll. Each character may receive a single Ethereal reward roll when completing missions in most normal [Heroic] and [Event Heroic] zones, and up to 3 reward rolls when completing missions in [Expert], [Expert Event], and the Shard of Hate: Utter Contempt [Heroic] zone. Each reward roll will grant at least one Planar Ethereal Coin, and a chance at a bonus reward, which can be one of the Ethereal items for that Ethereal wave, or bonus Planar Ethereal Coins.

Planar Ethereal Coins may be spent at the Ethereal Merchant located in Plane of Magic.

Wave 1: May 24 - July 9
Wave 2: July 9 - August 20
Wave 3: August 20 - September 30

ETHEREAL DROPS: Test Server
Reward rolls granted via expert zones may also be earned from solo missions. This is not an extra roll, as you are still capped at a total of 3 rolls per expert or solo mission.

ACHIEVEMENTS
The following Achievement lines have been expanded:

ITEM EXAMINE
The examine window and mouseover descriptions for house items now state where in a house the item may be placed (i.e. floor, wall, ceiling) in addition to the house type they may be placed in.
The Item Examine and mouseover windows have been updated and streamlined. Stats that are always granted together on items, such as Primary Attributes, will now be grouped together. If an item possessed was any single one of these stats previously, it will now grant you all of the stats in that item group. Mousing over the item group to see what stats are included in that group.

Base attributes are no longer shown on items by default, and instead can be viewed by clicking the Base checkbox located under the item icon.

Current item groups are:
  • Primary Attributes: Agility, Intelligence, Strength, Wisdom
  • Resistances: Arcane, Elemental, Noxious
  • Defensive Skills: Defense, Deflection, Parry, Aggression
  • Offensive Skills: Crushing, Piercing, Slashing, Ranged
  • Spell Skills: Ordination, Ministration, Subjugation, Disruption, Focus
