Patch Notes 22/03/2024

Post#1 » Fri Mar 22, 2024 9:44 am

Highlights

Eastern Wyvern Hunt

Image

Every year after spring settles in, Eastern Wyverns flock to the west for their breeding season, leaving a foul stench across the Old World. Greenskins scour the lands for 'da bestest wyvern for da big boss', while their enemies seek to cull the wyvern population. Wyvern wings will blot out the sun unless the brave venture out into the wilderness.

The Old World and Ulthuan reek with the stench of Eastern Wyvern eggs, a smell that seems to rile up the greenskins. War may be everywhere, but sometimes you just need to take out your basket and go egg collecting. Who knows what those pesky wyverns have been eating and laying in their eggs.

This live event will run from March 22nd to April 1sth, Altdorf noon time. Look man, it's an invasive species. Just because they largely coincide with when patching is done to "turn them on" or whatever doesn't mean you should take your time for granted. Everything might just end this week for all we know. Make the best of your time, crack some eggs, get out there and explore the world while it's still here.


Rewards

Basic: [Crate of Bloody Sunz Dyes][Crate of Butcher's Pass Dyes][Mini Eastern Wyvern Eggs] or [Eastern Wyvern Eggs]
Advanced: [Eastern Wyvern Claw][Eastern Wyvern Claw][Eastern Wyvern Claw] [Eastern Wyvern Claw] [Eastern Wyvern Claw][Eastern Wyvern Claw][Eastern Wyvern Claw]
Elite: [Clipped Wyvern Wings] from 2022 seen here , [Shorn Wyvern Wings] seen here, or [Potion of Acclaim]. All RoR cloaks are visible in the gallery here .

Easter Egg Hunt or Live Event Quest: Wyvern Mounts / Eastern Wyvern Disc. You can preview the Mounts here and Magus Disc here. The Ghastly White Eastern Wyvern is only available from the Live Event Quest "The Great White Wyvern" / "Da Great White Wyvern" in Karaz-a-Karak / Karak Eight Peaks respectively.

All Live Event rewards are only available from the associated heralds: Masta Wrangla Gribz at the Karak Eight Peaks Flya Boyz, or Wyvernslayer Thorrek on the Karaz-a-Karak Flight Deck - near the flight masters in the two cities.


Wyvern Egg Hunt

Those wretched wyverns have laid over 6,200 eggs across the Old World and Ulthuan. Worst of all, somehow those eggs found their way into Karaz-a-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks! That's what you get when you let a slayer decide what's for breakfast.

Tier 1 maps, along with Karaz-a-Karak and Karak Eight Peaks, have Mini Eastern Wyvern Eggs, which contain smaller quantities of rewards and items aimed at lower-level / newer players. Tier 2+ maps (including the side zones of Death Peak, Cinderfall, West Praag, and the Isle of the Dead) have Wyvern Eggs. Wyvern Eggs contain larger quantities of potions and dyes, and a few rare items for you to discover. However, Wyvern Eggs also have a chance to summon a feisty Eastern Wyvern Matriarch, so be careful when egg-hunting!

This year we've moved the Live-Event-Associated mounts, the pesky wyverns, to be exclusive to the Wyvern Eggs. When looting eggs, you have a rare chance to find a special Specked Egg of a colored variety. These eggs can be traded between players, or if you hate wyverns they can be crushed under your foot. Eggs are traded for mounts at the Live Event merchant near the Heralds.


Live Event Shoppe & New Dyes

The return of the Eastern Wyvern Hunt sees the return of the associated 26 Eastern Wyvern Hunt dyes, including two spec dyes themed around our Greenskin friends. The primary way to find new live event dyes is in the Wyvern Eggs, however some players may find that luck is not on their side and wish to buy dyes from a vendor. During the Eastern Wyvern Hunt, enemy players will drop a Green 'trash' item that players can use to buy dyes from the live event merchant (check your auto-rolls!) Order players will drop 'Teef' for Destruction players; Destruction players will drop 'Fangs' for Order players. Teef and Fangs are tradeable between players.

During the Eastern Wyvern Hunt, players can visit the live-event vendor to trade any Specked Eggs for a colorful wyvern mount, or Teef/Fangs for dyes. Destruction players can find Wrangla Rugrit Onetoof at the outdoor Flya Boyz area of Karak Eight Peaks, near the flight master. Order players can find Ranger Doreksson on the Flight Deck of Karaz-a-Karak. Please note that the live event heralds and merchants will only remain for 5 days after the live event, so claim your rewards and make your purchases in a timely manner!

Dye previews are available here towards the bottom, but please be aware that the colors may apply differently on different base armor colors. We recommend to use an addon such as Pocket Palette to see how this dye will look on your armor, but please note it may take a few days before the add-on is updated. These colors were taken from official publications.


Weekend Warfront: Assault on Black Crag

Image

Karak Drazh was once among the mightiest Dwarf strongholds of the World Edge Mountains, but was taken by the Greenskins during the Goblin Wars. Strategically placed at the western end of Death Pass, it guards the approach to Karak Eight Peaks. Today known as Black Crag, it is the most powerful Orc stronghold.

This weekend Assault on Black Crag 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 Black Crag Keep scenario, and extra rewards from completing the event tasks.



Realm versus Realm

Fortresses

- Fortress Lords have had their Stat set amended slightly, and have had a bonus HP increase of 3 million. (now 5.5 million.)



Dungeons

Gunbad

A new map has been created by one of our artists for Mount Gunbad! This map covers the 'top' level of Mount Gunbad. Unfortunately due to the middle wing wrapping under itself, we are unable to map this portion of the dungeon at this time, but you no longer have to feel lost in most of the dungeon. Likewise, a new map icon has been implemented for Mount Gunbad to help it stand out as a unique location, and not a standard cave.

After some feedback, some things have been toned down slightly in Gunbad. You can see the changes below:

Redeye Mixa's: EEK! - Base Damage reduced to 250 (Previous of 500). Radius reduced to 1200 (Previous of 7000). Base damage multiplier reduced to 125 (Previous 175). This should be just about the sweet spot for the ability.

Chipfang: Chipfang's Screech - Radius reduced to 800 (Previous 1200). Stun duration lowered to 4 seconds (Previous of 6.) Stun will be now casted every 30 seconds (Previous of 20s)

[22454]- Jar o' Pummelin's AA damage slightly reduced to 200 (Previous of 250)


Gunbad Quest Rework

We have analyzed all the quests in the Gunbad instance, and we have implemented many fixes for these quests. We have also introduced many new rewards that are aimed to be beneficial to both low level players and high level players. We have also introduced a new trophy with this quest rework! Have fun finding and obtaining all the new rewards!


Gunbad Influence Rework
We have updated the Gunbad influence rewards to be more rewarding for both lower and higher level players, as the previous blue-rarity items were not useful for anyone. You can see the changes below:

Basic: Renown Potion

Advanced: Choice of a Soulstone or a Companion Coin

Elite: A brand new Squig cloak! The cloak can be previewed here.


Gunbad Armor Change
We have decided to swap out the Redeye Cloak for a Redeye Belt to be in line with the other armor sets in this tier bracket. Solithex will now drop the Redeye Belt. The item stats of the Redeye Belt will be the same as the Redeye Cloak. Players may trade their Redeye Cloaks for the Redeye Belt at a merchant inside Mount Gunbad if they do not wish to obtain it through the new means, though this merchant may be removed at some time in the future. Additionally, the Redeye Belt has been added to the Armory section of the Tome of Knowledge, so when you equip it you can see the unlock (the cloak did not have this previously).

Players who have the Redeye Cloak will not lose it, or its appearance, however in the near future this appearance will not be obtainable. It will be re-added during future PvE reworks in appropriate content more fitting for a Cold One skin.

If you have any feedback about the Gunbad Changes, please share it with the Developer Team below, but especially in the Gunbad Feedback Megathread:

Inventory
In preparation for incoming dye-hoarding, all dye stacks have been increased from 99 to 999.


Temporary Sentinel Weapon Acquisition
The Sentinel Vendors in IC and Altdorf now offer Sentinel Weapons for the cost of 2 Sentinel Veteran Medallions, which can be obtained via the Dungeon Weekly. These vendors can be found in The Undercroft for Destruction, or The War Quarters for Order.

You just broke a build for early RR tanks (2H or S/B) that was BiS until Sovereign with this change.

I would tolerate that in exchange for typical NPC IB winged helmet from gunbad.
Nevertheless, indeed, thats very big one. A grudge!

That gunbad change removing the cap is absurd, adding a belt that can be use why not but removing the cap no way.
This just deleted a lot of build and especially early game tank build.

I agree. The change to the cape is a bad one. If it is a cosmetic issues then you should just change the appearence of the cape

Agree on unnecessary change for Redeye cloak to belt. Before not many people did optional boss for a cloak (it is not required for ward) but it was a trading card for groups needed a tank. Now I guess it will be harder to get a tank, or do Solithex at all. If im right there is only Beastlord cloak left for new 40 rank players and its not even good for many classes (odd bonuses). I dont understand.

If you plan to extend anni/merc or conq/domi sets with cloak it would be right time to tell it, otherwise people will again complain.
