Default Release 091

Greetings Heroes and Heroines of Duria

Release 91 features further PvP improvements as well as the introduction of the Quick Riding feature and its matching Quick Mounts.

LIVE SYNC, today 20.02.2013

Timetable:
13:00 (cet) start count down on all instances (30 min)
13:30 (cet) start maintenance (takes 30 -60 min)

Quick Mounts
Release 91 signifies the launch of the new Quick Mounts. In order to you use them, you’ll have to increase your level of knowledge by learning the new talent “Quick Riding”. As soon as you’ve learned this new talent, you can explore the world of Drakensang Online with your new Quick Mount which you can get through quests or the merchant. In addition, you can now locate the arenas in the world of Dracania which now also boast new, matching quest series. Based on your feedback, we were also able to make additional balancing improvements and further optimize the balance of classes.

Known issues



Talents:
  • The Tooltip of dragon knight talent ‘powerful swing’ says that the movement of enemies is hindered, but it’s the damage that will be hindered.
  • The talent trees reset did not occur as planned due to technical issue. The talent tree reset will happen during the next downtime (Hotfix or Patch).
PVP:
  • The trade and quest keeper ‘Archos Andronidos’ in Ellonidos don’t has any items for offer.
Combat:
  • Gorga: The water floating effect is currently shown to far in the ground.
Charge onward, Heroes of Duria!
