RJ Patch Notes


Planebreaker Bastion: Aftermath
Every week until Fae Yule we’re introducing newly updated content for level 60! Our fifth feature is the Planebreaker Bastion: Aftermath Chronicle, which explores what comes after the Planebreaker Bastion raid, and has some new rewards to boot!

Fae Yule!
Fae Yule makes a return on 12/12/13, this Thursday afternoon, and with the holiday tidings comes bonus loot! Many bosses in expert dungeons, slivers, and raid dungeons now dropping boxes with extra goodies inside.

New PvP Mode: Ranked 5v5 Warfronts!
These Warfronts are now available for all level 60 players. Participants will be bolstered up to Rank 90 Myrmidon gear upon entering. The leader of a full group must queue through the normal PVP window to enter. Points are scored based on kills; the first team to 25 kills takes the match. To track your 5v5 rating, check the Warfront results window!
