Patch Notes - 2nd October 2019

Greetings Adventurers, 

Our latest event "Season of the Hunt" is expanding with the addition of part 2. By defeating monsters, fishing, or gathering, you will have the chance to acquire special pouches which contain great rewards!

Also, for those following the path of peace and not into hunting stuff, you will be able to enjoy EXP bonuses for Mounts and Training, and also more chances to get a higher tier foal when exchanging your horses!

But that is not all: From now on, there will be some permanent quests to obtain three pets for free! Take good care of them!

Who said second parts were never good? Enjoy the events and see you next week with more exciting content!

 

*Notice: Next week’s regular maintenance will start on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 08:00 UTC instead of Wednesday. Exact times of the maintenance will be announced with the next maintenance announcement.
