So this should become your one stop shop for all the basic information you need for Wednesday! Enjoy!

FREE incense, FREE exp scroll, FREE Phylacteries



Players now have the possibility to gain an incense, experience scrolls and phylacteries through new daily quests via the following quests:
The quest "Regular Customers":
This quest provides 2 rewards, a bound Small Cone of Incense and a bound Captain's Letter of Marque (experience scroll).
League players, this Quest is given by the Mysterious Family in the Gibberling District of Novograd.
Empire players, this quest is given by Semer Nemar in Yasker Tower.
You need to talk to several NPCs to complete this daily quest.
The quest "Special Delivery" and "A New Charter for Novograd" have been removed and replaced by one single quest.
The new quest reward is 5 bound Phylacteries of passage. At the moment, these phylacteries have a timer expiry. We are currently investigating ways to have this timer longer.
The new quest is short to complete and only requires talking to one same NPC. Players need to pay 20 silver to complete the quest. It is the same NPC from whom players can obtain the Martyr's Blessing, Marianne de Ardeur or Elizaveta Rysina.
This quest can be completed daily.

A full guide for those quests can be found here!

Droplets of Death
With every update comes class changes for players. We know that sometime it can upset your secure system, and that's why we will be sending players droplets of death to their in game mailbox. These items offer players unlimited respecs of rubies and talent trees from their class trainer for 48 hours. Meaning that you can try out as many builds as you want! Remember it's 48 hours that they last for. After that the items will dissolve from your bag and you will keep the current build you have. Do not remove them from your bag as you will not be able to regain these items either. We're sure you will be too busy testing builds anyway.

THE NEW GUILD SYSTEM

A new Guild Levelling system has been implemented

- Guilds can now gain levels from level 1 up to a maximum of level 100.
- Each new Guild Level provides benefits to all members of the guilds.

Level 1 Guilds may have 1 Tabard Bearer, but will gain more as they level up.

Tabard Bearers will receive a bonus to all character stats and additional benefits.

Tabard Bearers contribute to their guild’s level by completing special daily and repeatable quests, killing bosses in Heroic Instances and raids, and participating in the Arena of Death and Melting Isle events.


- At Guild Level 15, Guild Leaders may acquire (with in-game gold or from the Allods Boutique at a later date) a Heraldic License.

Players may open these chests to claim the prizes within, but opening a chest takes a few moments, and incoming damage interrupts the process.

- The Master. The true leader of the cultists and demons. His powers are rumoured to be utterly incomprehensible. It was he who granted immortality to Gorluxor, allowing to rise again and again after each defeat. It was he who resurrected Armando de Doucer and elevated Strina the Fierce to power. The Master is as powerful as Tensess, and his true ability may exceed even that.
- You must overcome countless obstacles and defeat hoards of dangerous enemies to even have the chance to challenge the Master.
- The battle will be unlike any other you have survived. His abilities are unknown, his battle tactics unpredictable. The strategies that brought you success in previous battles will fail you.
