Welcome to your Monday content build! Today begins the next stage of World Events: Stage 2, previously known as your AvA phase. Starting at 12:00pm EDT, AvA attacks will begin, camps may be upgraded to level 20, and new Alliance Challenges are available to start acquiring items for the third stage of AvA. Alongside these changes are bugfixes and new performance improvements for the game.
This build contains Forging Bonds, Part 5: Braavos, a new series of quests and content surrounding the expansion of your activities into Braavos. Follow your path as you reach across the Narrow Sea and enmesh yourself with the Braavosi and their Iron Bank. How will you deal with those factions who have such immense wealth and power, even extending to King’s Landing?
Lastly, we have bugfixes for major and minor issues, including the evolved item crafting problems, Sworn Swords being stuck on patrol, and performance improvements to Adventure Parties and AvA.
—Added two new challenges, Evading the Iron Bank and Pirates on the Coast, as part of Stage 2 of World Events.
