Nexus Core [Advanced Solo and Heroic]

  • All beam-firing golems will now more reliably face the direction their beams fire. They will also now telegraph the position of the beams a few seconds in advance.
  • Amalgam of Energy’s healing adds and Maligned Gyro’s ripper adds now appear as actors (white nametag), but are still attackable. They will no longer spam “encounter broken” messages or occasionally stop pathing.

    •Now until Feb. 25th, Gold members earn DOUBLE on all alternate currencies!”

    Can someone explain that in plain English, please? What on earth does it mean? 🙂


    • Froak


      it looks like anything that goes in your currency tab (etyma, obols, greater spirits, far seas tokens etc) will give you a double amount.


      • Dedith


        Tokens from PvP kills do not get doubled, but BG and PVP Quest tokens do.


    • Kruzzen


      Woohoo, Finally a reason to be gold.


  • badcat


    I wonder why there is no fix for Brell in pickpaw mine as he calls way to many adds and that mechanic seams to be busted as they all seam to come at one time now instead of just waves.


    • Feldon


      Advanced Solo: Bolgin starts with waves of adds. Then Bolgin becomes attackable. Any adds you get after that is due to being careless and ignoring the red text.

      Not sure about the Heroic.


  • Moose



    Adv solo or heroic? If you ignore the script and try to dps through it your going to have a bad time. I tried that too many times during beta and finally submitted to following the script and now he’s cake.
