July 27, 2011 Update Notes

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance, Live Events, PvP/BG/Proving Grounds

Today’s July 27, 2011 update notes address issues with the Spires and Dragon Ring Events on those servers where the events are still running. This update does not yet include a fix for servers that have already completed the events and those affected players who were present but didn’t get credit due to crashes, not having the right quest, or their mob despawning.

LIVE EVENTS

Dragon Ring and Wizard Spire Rebuild Events

  • Entering the event area should now check what quests the player has and what stage the event is on. If the player has a quest from a previous stage the quest should be updated. If the player does not have the current quest it will be offered to the player.
  • For the final encounter in both events when a player engages the encounter they will be offered the quest for that encounter if they do not have it already.
  • The Wizard Spire Replica should now be purchasable for 25 tokens if the event has been completed.
  • The Pocket Wizard Spire is now heirloom instead of no trade.
  • The Pocket Dragon Ring is now heirloom instead of no trade.
  • Using the wizard spire teleport from within a guildhall should now offer Eastern Wastes wizard spire if the event for it has been completed.
  • Text has been corrected when mousing over the Eastern Wastes option on the travel map.

PvP MERCHANTS / ITEMS

  • Rage-Fused and Reinforced Armor is now visible for all buyers.
  • All armor sets should now display their name correctly.
  • PvP merchants should now request the correct faction for all items.
  • The Crystal of Discord is once again available for purchase.

Incidentally,there seems to be some realization that the new Frozen Tundra battleground is cannibalizing interest the other Battlegrounds, especially as only Tundra is awarding faction with Velious Discord. The following change is now expected in a future Game Update:

You will now earn Velious Discord faction across all matches [subject to change]:

  • Gears of Klak’Anon – +175 win, +75 loss
  • Battlefield of Ganak – +200 win, +75 loss
  • The Frozen Tundra – +225 win, +75 loss [No Change]
  • Smuggler’s Den – +250 win, +75 loss

    Before anyone says “Why are they wasting time fixing these events,its over”, they are fixing them since a few servers are still not done, and so they do not have to fix them later on when they have events when more areas are opened.

    How many servers are still running the event?

    I know on guk we finished the EW spires but the dragon ring is at 78%, and the main reason why is not one person is doing the fedx go buy stuff from thurgadin quests.

    Isest is right. No one wants to do the repeatable quest, so they just show up for the ring event every 3 hours. And since it seems that no matter how many instances of GD there are when the ring event is going on, that does not help the progression on building the dragon ring.

    I can understand why. No one wants to do the fedx quest for 3 hours waiting on the ring event to happen.
