Update 28.1 Release Notes

Here are the Release Notes for Update 28.1, released on Wednesday, October 28th.

News and Notes:


  • The Leading the Charge deed for completing Amdân Dammul, the Bloody Threshold at Tier 4 is available beginning on November 5, 2020.
  • The Shakalush, the Stair Battle discovery deed was being set to the Minas Morgul Deed Panel, which would cause players without the pack to be unable to get the Deed. This deed has now been moved to the Elderslade Instance Tab, and ownership of Minas Morgul will not impact completion.


  • The Decorative Gourds housing item now is properly usable (with appropriate housing decoration permissions) in order to create its intended spooky effect.
  • Rare Three Peaks jewellery that drops in the War of Three Peaks instances now correctly disenchants into Embers of Enchantment.

Tactical Critical Multiplier on the Sabatons of the Wind Gate and Boots of the Wind Gate has been replaced with a stat relevant to agility and might classes, physical mastery.
