Hotfix Notes for December 12, 2014

A hotfix was pushed live this evening:

*** Hotfix ***

  • The Cost of Balance - When entering the instance, you will no longer appear under the world.
  • All Rivers Lead to the Sea - Multiple copies of Holmein will no longer spawn when the Unseen, Unheard Helper is spam-hailed.
  • In Combine Dredge, Pria the Penitent and her placeholders have been moved down the ramp, away from Amlis the Torturer. This will make it safer for players trying to speak with Amlis. Additionally, NPCs on Pria's encounter will be less observant and not see as far.
  • Kedge Counterblow - The rare NPC High Guard Vnayyanye or its placeholder "a restive guard" will no longer spawn early in this Heroic Adventure.

Here are the patch notes for Thursday's game update (servers due up around 8:00 A.M. Pacific Time):

*** Highlights ***

- The Darkened Sea Collector's Edition now comes with additional items! If you purchase this edition, or have purchased it in the past, you now receive a whistle item that summons a parrot to teleport you to Brother Island. You also receive your choice of one of three Battle Cat Mounts! If you own the Collector's Edition, you may purchase additional Battle Cat Mounts on the Marketplace for your characters.
- On December 12th the 15 Days of Frostfell start! Each day, something unique will be offered in the form of events or sales on items in the Marketplace. Check the website and Marketplace daily to see what we have in store!
- The traditional Frostfell Marketplace items return on December 14th.
- New Hero's Forge armor sets will be available January 14th! The Thaell Ew set can be crafted, but only if you can unlock the secrets from Armorer Xochtli on Thuliasaur Island. The Arx Mentis set can be obtained from Researcher Orbiana in Katta Castrum: Deluge, for the right price.
- Added a group version of the final raid in Arx Mentis, which will be available December 17th. Speak with Firiona in Katta Castrum: Deluge. If you have completed all the progression she will have something for your [group] to do.
- The progression requirements for traveling to Brother Island have been removed.
- Chests can now be found at the end of most missions in The Darkened Sea.
