Build Notes 1.1.240 - July 14, 2014

Hello, Bannermen!

Welcome to your weekly content build!  This week, we bring you special changes in another Player Appreciation Week - more changes and more bufixes for all of our players!  Send your Sworn Swords on any Adventure and earn 50% more XP, participate in our Seal Slot Sale, and check out new seals added to the shop.

The Seal Slot Sale is here! Item and Sworn Sword seal slots 3, 4, 5, and 6 have had their gold cost reduced to 5 gold each. This totals more that 40% savings when unlocking all 6 slots on an item! This sale is also reflected on permanent Sworn Sword purchases in the shop. Peerless permanent Sworn Swords are now 23 Gold (35% discount!) while legendary are 18 (25% discount!). Please note, Sworn Swords that are in the shop at the time that the build goes live will retain their old price - but we’re also adding another 6 Sworn Swords to the keep, so some of your choices should reflect the new prices. New Sworn Swords that cycle in over the week will be available at the sale price.

This build also contains Forging Bonds, Part 4: Defiance! Play through 10 all-new quests that follow the latest intrigue and betrayals in your Holdings!

We have added four new evolution recipes: Illustrious Mercer, Master Assassin, Phalanx Commander, and Cavalry Commander. These new recipes each require a number of Legendary items dropped from adventures. These four items (one for each evolution recipe), along with the common and uncommon black gems, have had their drop rates doubled!

And lastly, we have a huge number of bugfixes and improvements for the game. Our engineers and designers have been hard at work resolved a lot of those little things that annoy our players. We hope you’ll find Game of Thrones Ascent leaner and more polished than ever!

Additional Improvements:
—Added Part 4 of Forging Bonds, “Defiance,” which includes 10 all new quests!
—Added the Instruments of Death item pack to the Shop. Grab a random item that has a killer past!
—Added the full “My Name is Reek” item pack to the Shop.
—For the first time, items from Season 4 Episode 10, The Children, are available for individual purchase in the shop!
It’s Player Appreciation Week!
  —Player Appreciation Week: Adventures now grant 50% more XP for a limited time!
  —Player Appreciation Week: Reduced the gold price on Seal Slot Unlocks to 5 gold each for a limited time! The first Seal Slot Unlock costs 3 gold, per usual.
  —Player Appreciation Week: Doubled drop rates of the common and uncommon black gems in adventures for a limited time!
  —Player Appreciation Week: Doubled drop rates for Grand Pack Horse, Grand Short Hauberk, Grand Pewter Chain, and Grand Tailored Tunic in adventures for a limited time!
—Added four new evolution recipes: Illustrious Mercer (Artisan Quarters), Master Assassin (Watchtower), Phalanx Commander (Armory), and Cavalry Commander (Tourney Arena). These items take your legendary items (Elite Cavalry, Elite Phalanx, etc.) and give you a chance to enhance them even further, into a truly formidable peerless version! NOTE: Affixes DO NOT persist through these recipes - it’s another roll of the dice!
