Fixed the issue causing the recent crashes

Disabled the DPS category for Leaderboards

Bard's Soul Rune will from now on only be 50% effective in PvP (we will be reworking the logic on how buffs stack, but this will require a good deal of time testing to make sure it remains balanced)

Weapon upgrades have been fixed.

 

Arena

Setup duration has been extended to 5 minutes (this will expedite however if both sides have their settings set or loaded - but it allows new arena players time to adequately do their settings).

The Arena base settings have been significantly lowered to reflect a more enjoyable pvp tier to make for better Arena matches. We plan to continue fine tuning this with time!

Tutorial has been added for arena. It can be accessed via '!arena help' or as a pop-up first time players join an area.

Patch Notes November 1st

Archlight Battlegrounds & Arenas

Battlegrounds and Arenas are now available to play.
 

Archlight Battlegrounds are a new that allows guilds to challenge eachother on a completely level playing field. Guild Leaders and Vice Leaders can simply pull up a UI window, input the opposing guilds name, and then fully configure the exact balance you want the battle to entail. Once you have fully customized the battle parameters, the invitation will be sent to the opposing guild, if/when they accept, a 15 minute countdown will start, at which time those guilds can enter the battleground and start preparing for battle.  

You can set anything from a wager (comes from the guild banks), equipment skills/resistances, gems, rune upgrades, respawn time... And more!

To save time if you dont have specific preferences for the battleground, you can simply use the presets available - Novice, Adept, Expert, Master - To have all the custom presets filled out based on roughly that stage of the game.

Currently there is 1 battleground map available, 2 more will be available in a near future patch.

We have also released a fully balanced 3v3 Arena System (with 3 different available maps) where players will be scaled based on a pre-set balance, this system will indeed have a ranking system and leaderboard ranks to show the highest skilled 3v3 players. Partner up with 2 friends, 2 randoms, and create a ranked Arena team.  

At the end of every week (Sunday midnight server time) the top 3 Arena Teams will receive a pair of Arena Wings based on their rank.

A unique reward system will also be added to Archlight 3v3 Arena's as well. Every season players will be able to join teams with 2 other players, in which they will compete on a Rated Arena system. The top rated teams will obtain exclusive Heirloom Mounts based on their rank. The higher rank, the more valuable exclusive they will obtain. Every season new exclusive mounts will be added as that seasons Heirloom from the Rated Arena.

We will also be planning weekly prizepooled tournaments in the future for Arena that everyone can partake in (again, all characters are balanced, so all that matters is the more skillful team/players). We will start planning these out once we feel the Arena system is fully polished and ready for a competitive league/tournaments. More on that to come later.
