Patch Notes: Version: NW.125.20210330b.4

By Julia (nitocris83) | Mon 12 Apr 2021 07:59:41 PM PDT

Known Issues

Until the next build is released, Heroic Encounters in the Mire will drop Bashin' Ordur Plans in addition to the new currency for Episode 2. This will change so that it's just the new currency for the new episode.



Binding Change!

Rings from Sharandar content are now Bind to Account on Pickup, instead of Bind on Equip. These items will become bound when this build goes live (or, if not immediately, next time they’re moved), so if you wish to trade or auction them, this is your last chance!
