Misc

  • Patching via the launcher should go much faster, especially if you have not played in a while.
  • The effect display system has been updated to improve client performance during group combat, particularly in raids.

Known Issues

  • Characters are not receiving their proper heritage titles for their newly-selected nationality during a race change. This will be corrected in a future patch, and we intend to make the correction retroactive.
