Bug Fixes[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed a bug in the Eye of the North quest Kilroy Stonekin's Punch-Out Extravaganza! that occasionally prevented players who had regained full Energy from standing up after being knocked down.
  • Fixed a bug in the Eye of the North quest Leader of the Pack that prevented some players from completing it.
  • Fixed a bug with the Eye of the North PvE Skill Ursan Blessing that caused it to incorrectly replace some Skills when its effect expired.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause a player’s profession to appear using the wrong gender-noun on the character select screen in some languages.

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Added the option to bind keys that activate Hero Skills. These keys can be bound through the "Action: Order Hero (1-3) to use Skill (1-8)" option in the Control options panel (Menu > Options > Control).
  • Updated the Hero AI for the Dervish Skill, Faithful Intervention.

Open Travel: Territory and District UI Changes[edit | edit source]

  • As a continuation of last year’s “Territory and District UI Changes” that saw language district restrictions removed for America and Europe, we are now removing restrictions on travel to Asian language districts.
  • In this update restrictions to Korean language districts will be removed and players of American, European and Korean districts will be able to travel back and forth between these language districts.
  • Restrictions on travel to Japanese and Taiwanese language districts will be removed in a subsequent build.
