HM out, career updates in

For those who can’t access the Herald and original source of the patch notes. These are long-ass notes, so get comfortable! I’ve been looking forward to this.

(Edited with additional info in blue in the RvR section.)

The update you’ve all been waiting for, 1.0.6, is almost here! We wanted to thank everyone who tested and provided feedback on this update’s content.

On Tuesday, 12/2/08 all servers will be brought offline to begin the update. North American servers will be brought down at 6:30AM EST with Oceanic servers to follow at 9:00AM EST.

This is our biggest update yet! It’s chock-full of exciting career changes and heralds the debut of the highly anticipated Black Guard and Knight of the Blazing Sun careers. If you’ve finished the Heavy Metal event and have opened your Heavy Metal Chest, then you will be able to play a Black Guard and Knight of the Blazing Sun when this patch goes live (before anyone else!). For those of you who did not complete the Heavy Metal event, don’t fret! You, too, will be able to play these two new careers starting next week.

This update is so massive that we needed to split the notes into two sections. So, without further ado, on with the notes! WAAAGH!!!
Highlights

  • New Careers Released! – With this version we are happy to announce the release of the Empire’s Knight of the Blazing Sun, and the Dark Elf’s Black Guard! These new careers are available early for players who have successfully completed the Heavy Metal Event!
  • Mastery Point Refunds – Due to a number of significant changes to many of our careers, we are providing a full Mastery Point refund to certain careers. Players who belong to one of the careers below will need to speak with a Trainer to retrain their Career Mastery:

Changes include a chance to break on ANY damage including DoT damage, as well as a 5 second immunity to being rooted again after the current root effect breaks.

  2. Glad to see you back in action, Copra!
    And no, those patch notes are THAT big — in fact on the Herald they’re in 2 sections. I did stick a read-more cut in there, but I think that probably only works here. If I were smart I’d have worked out how to make it show less than the full text in readers… but I am not smert. 😉

  3. Garsh… I am so happy right now.

    It was to the point where I preferred playing on the Test realm to the actual game. The combat responsiveness is that much better.

    I’m also stoked to have those changes added for my IB. Away With Ye will be used even more now!

  5. Thanks for sharing for those of us stuck at work!

    Question regarding,

    “All Dwarf great hammer items in the game are now set to be useable by Ironbreakers only. ”

    You think that means no great hammers at all for warrior priests or just dwarven great hammers?

    Like

  6. I’d assume it means the ones that were marked for the Hammerer or just Hammer/Dwarf. Yet another clue that the Hammerer is not going to make it back in game.

    All hail our Slayer overlords.
