and Update Notes after the jump…

WEEKLY FEATURE — Falling Tears x2 Raid

  • Players that have completed “Tears of Veeshan: Falling Tears” are being sought by the Duality within Qeynos and Freeport, before Kerafyrm and the Awakened Legion destroy all of Norrath in an ill-fated desire to bring about a second Age of Scale. Time is fleeting before Age’s End! Note: This event is scheduled to start 8/5 @ 9am PST.


  • Fixed a bug where some experience bonuses were not applying correctly to characters that are mentoring someone else.


  • Summon Warder: Bear can now properly be cast while moving.


  • Most crafted addon removers no longer destroy the item they are used on.
  • Extended Potion of the Advanced can no longer be cancelled.

    seems like F2P can’t enter the zone


  • Brakepiston


    F2P are excluded from new instances for 2 weeks. It was the same with HKc and Death Toll.


  • Omence


    Was the x2 instance added today or just the entrance quest?

    As much as I am excited for the end of a plotline a decade in the making, I can’t but feel underwhelmed that it is a meager x2. This is coming from someone who had never raided – but this is the end of something we’ve built up to since launch. To me, an expansion would have been entirely more fitting, but instead it’s just this.

    Not to sound like a naysayer – I am glad they are *trying* to give us something each week, however dubious some of them might seem. But does anyone else agree that an event of this magnitude should have been a little more… epic? Final? Amazing?

    Just my 2 coppers worth.

      I think I read on a transcript where they were trying to make it as available as possible and still have at least somewhat of an “epic” feel, and believe they have mostly succeeded (pending difficulty reports that is).

      Something this eventful really shouldn’t be something soloable, so a X2 is the middle ground between a group encounter and a full on X4. Best they could do short of designing a X2 AND a X4, as the end of the story arc should require more than a handful of players. Just my opinion though.
