Update Log #104 - Ancient Invention, Invention Machines, Mr. Ex, PvP (Wilderness) Improvements and a plethore of other changes!


Recommended Posts

Hey there, sorry for the long wait, life's been pretty hectic with the newborn..

Anyways, no Shadow Reef or Orthen in this update because as you've been noticing the server and the site had issues a few weeks ago and I was dedicating all my free time to sort those out, focused on stability over everything else. However with that being said - these 2 major content additions HAVE been started and are in development, I know I promised it earlier but they'll most likely be released in the next update.

 

P.S. I didn't document everything, there was a lot of server core changes and client changes/fixes, and I've most likely forgot about something in the run.. so as always - please let me know if anything's out of place!
