Today’s build has a significant number of changes, so please read the entire build notes before logging in.
First off, today is the first time you will be able to purchase Unwavering Honor, our pack featuring everything Stark, from Ned’s riding leathers and cane to his Honored Bones and the legendary greatsword, Ice! If you don’t get it in this first random pack, don’t worry: they’ll be seeing the shop again soon enough. We also have two packs for sale in the Deals section: the Healer’s Touch has made an appearance as a full pack, and a Mysterious Magics pack has been shipped from across the Narrow Sea! Our Volume You content also continues with Chapter 16: Eastern Pursuit. Chase your enemy across the Narrow Sea with new quests and new content!
Today’s build also contains many changes to the Alliance vs. Alliance system. Now that the Ghost Phase is over, we are implementing the various AvA tweaks and changes for the Wolf Phase. Remember that the Wolf Phase begins at 12:00pm EST on Monday, January 27th 2014! For a full list of changes, please read the full build notes and the blog.
Lastly, we have made some significant changes to how stats work on items. This should make your stats significantly more accurate, as well as fixing several issues related to stat calculations and stat display. If you do not see the changes when you log in, please remove the items from a Sworn Sword and re-apply them.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy your build!
