Patch Notes: NW.60.20160410a.4


Skill Nodes Update
Refinement items are being removed from Skill Nodes, and Insignias can drop more often as a result.  Bound, uncommon Insignias will also now drop from most enemies in-game.  For more information, see the news post, Upcoming Changes to Skill Nodes.


  • A Double Refinement weekend is now scheduled to start at the end of maintenance, and end on Monday, May 2, at 10:00 AM PDT (UTC -7).
  • A Double Seals weekend on May 19 has been swapped with the Double Guild Marks weekend on May 26.


Release Notes

Elemental Evil Campaign

  • If players had managed to complete quests later in an Elemental Evil zone without completing the earlier quests, the Campaign now properly catches up.



  • Items can once again properly be purchased when they require Stronghold structures of a certain rank.  (Was hotfixed 2016-04-21)
