Patch Notes 20/04/2021

Post#1 » Tue Apr 20, 2021 11:24 am

Highlights

Weekend Warfront: Battle at the Cairn

Image

The land of Ulthuan seems to have been built on tragedy. Some tragedies come from without, and are guided by neither malice nor whim. Others are manufactured and forced upon their victims like deadly poisons. The tale of the Brothers Blackcairn, Elthryril and Lothelryel, is one such tragedy. Lothelryel made a pact with Morathi to betray his brother, Elthryril. Using Morathi's magics, Lothelryel sought to take control of his line and follow Malekith. Yet it was Lothelryel who was deceived. The magic that would have imprisoned his brother entrapped both of them, even as their blades guaranteed their mutual destruction.

In places the rage and hatred of familial betrayal have seeped into the land, turning the sites of ancient struggles into magical wellsprings of dark power. Now a new battle erupts as Order and Destruction forces vie for control of the Blackcairn Estate.


This weekend the Battle at the Cairn will be the weekend warfront from 12:00 on Friday to 12:00 on Monday Altdorf time. You get +50% XP and Renown in the Blood of the Black Cairn scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.



Realm versus Realm
Image
City Siege

- Career & Renown trainers have been added to Stage 1 & Stage 2 of city sieges.

- The cannons are now properly classed as siege weapons and only healable by abilities that can heal siege engines.


Ranked Scenarios

The weekly mails with Triumphant Emblems have been replaced with a weekly event instead. We hope that it will provide much better visibility into your current progress towards gaining different rewards.
Spoiler:
Image
- The prices for the Triumphant & Victorious sets have been reduced by 20%.

- The ranked SC event slot item has been changed to 7 days for 200 emblems, instead of 3 days for 100 emblems.

- The Stalwart Soulstone cost has been reduced by 20%.

- When there's multiple ranked matches ongoing, it will start to avoid matching two players of the same class and archetype into the same match. This avoids setups where you have no single target punt and many setups where you would have no heal debuff. But when there's only enough players available for one match it will ignore this restriction.

- Group queue Ranked scenarios give 50% extra rewards between 12:00 on Fridays and 12:00 on Mondays (same hours as weekend warfronts are active). Note: This does not include the group challenges described below, only when you queue up.

- A command to challenge another group to a 6v6 match has been added. Use .groupchallenge <enemyplayer> with the enemy group leader name to challenge them to a match. Currently this gives a bit less rewards than a group ranked match that you queue up for.


Scenarios

- Changed the points per kill in Howling Gorge from 3 to 5.



User Interface
Image
Multi Spec

A UI has been added to the Multi Spec system. It allows 5 slots to be used, and by shift-clicking them you can set custom names for them.

Scenario Scoreboards

If a player is using a different archetype than their class true archetype an extra icon will be shown to display their current archetype.

Ranked changes looking good.

Do group ranked games count towards the weekly event as well?

As long as people instantly blame others and spam chat with their frustration when losing a game....no.
