Release Notes

Content and Environment


  • House of the Crocodile: Another case where this instance could get stuck should now be resolved.
  • House of the Crocodile: Players can no longer use certain abilities to get past a progress-gating wall.
  • Port Nyanzaru: The guards outside Merchant Prince Wakanga O'tamu's chambers are once again seated on appropriate mounts, rather than the ground.


  • Portobello's Game: The weekly Accreditation cap should no longer unexpectedly lower just by previewing certain rewards.
  • The Seals discount event now properly affects Seals of the Brave.
  • A new Seals discount event has been added starting on Thursday, November 2nd.



Combat and Powers

Enemies and Encounters

  • Yuan-ti Dancer: The Charm effect is now properly fully removed from companions that die while it's affecting them.



Items and Economy


  • Mage Slayer and Stronghold Cleric: These companions no longer have Pact Blades item slots.  Mage Slayer now has a Grimoire slot, and the Stronghold Cleric has an Icon slot.
    • Illusionist's Gambit: Pact Blades of the Companion have been converted to Grimoires of the Companion.
    • Pact Blades that are currently equipped by companions will remain in that slot.  There's a known issue where these blades cannot be manually removed, but they will auto-unequip if the player swaps the companion to an Idle Companion slot.


  • Arcane Whirlwind: This mount's combat power now properly respects control resistance and immunity.
  • Flail Snail: This mount's combat power now properly respects control resistance and immunity.
  • Ice Panther: This mount's dismount animation no longer plays a horse's whinny sound.


  • Resolved an issue wherein a Tyrannosaurus Rex would only drop a single fang for a party that was not the highest contributing party to the Tyrannosaurus Rex’s defeat.
