We'll push Publish 71.0 to Origin today, Tuesday 19th at 11:00 am EDT. This requires a short downtime: we expect the shard to be back online within an hour no later than 12:00 pm EDT.

Please check the previously posted Publish 71.0 Notes. There are some additional changes:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the problem with transferring an increased storage home to a player without increased storage to their accounts.
  • The tentacles of the Harrower should not spawn in unreachable locations any longer/
  • Removed the archery property on gargoyle jewelry/
  • Made it easier to get the Fishing Book 6.
  • Fishing hooks can not be applied to Siege Only fishing poles with less uses than the hook.

By the way: If you haven't had the chance to take a look at some of the new icons coming with this publish, you have the chance to see them on our facebook page.

“My Queen, I have finished translating the list of the remaining components, as you requested.”

“That is excellent news.”

“Dream Serpent scales, Hair of a Dryad Queen, Soulbinder’s Tears, a Pristine Crystal Lotus, and the Heart of a Night Terror? And here I was hoping the last components might not be as difficult to obtain, given our lack of time.”

“Aye, indeed. However, I have taken the liberty of documenting the location of each of the creatures for you.”

Zhah gently unrolled the scroll the scholar placed in her hand, perusing the list it contained.
Zhah stood from her desk and nodded in greeting to Prugyilonus, the High Scholar.

Before everyone heads off to face Independence Day traffic, I wanted to give you all an update.
Our overall goal this year was to keep a healthy cadence of small to medium publishes, fleshing out our current in-world content, while also offering more exploration. Less fiction more in-game activity. Shorter story arcs, more replay ability … so with that, here is the update:
Currently, some PvP changes we held on to for a few months have made it to Test Center. We have already gotten some initial feedback from North American, European, and Japanese communities, and are adapting the feedback accordingly. There are a few changes, and in this case, we think change is good.
Next week (after we return) we will be posting patch notes and adding High Seas content. We have tested and evaluated a new sea encounter, as well as updated rewards and elements of the fishing quests.
In addition, in the next several weeks, we’ll be adding client crash fixes, publishing the second phase of the current live story Ter Mur, and releasing a healthy dose of gameplay bug fixes.
We decide to split all of our content into two separate publishes. After July expect to see the following:
· Clean up Britannia (the update formerly known as Spring Cleaning) – We are currently testing and evaluating about 850 items with turn ins and rewards
· Anniversary item additions
· Art resolution updates to the Enhanced client
· Veteran Rewards
None of this information should be new to those who have been following the boards and patch notes, but for those who are returning … and there has been a sizeable number of you … welcome back, and keep watching for updates.
Thanks to all of you have participated and taken the time to give us feedback on the latest in PvP changes … if you have not take a wander over and let us know what you think.
Finally, thanks to everyone who has participated in the Talents of Sosaria … for those who cannot draw or sculpt … if you have the inclination -- please submit any house decorations for the 4th of July weekend to Mesanna.
Be safe and have a joyous weekend!
