Patch Notes 30.09 – Flying Fortresses

The patch will be published on Thursday, 26 February 2015 and introduces flying guild keeps that can be conquered and occupied, updated class skills, and new, improved, and more difficult dungeons.


Honor Halls

The biggest new addition is the introduction of the Honor Halls, which are floating keeps that guilds can conquer and occupy!

You’ll find our preview with detailed information here.

  • You can only enter your own Honor Hall.
  • You can reach your keep via Pegasus from Velika/Allemantheia or via Teleportal.
  • Honor Halls with maxed out expansions and all six NPCs receive a special effect around the keep.
  • An introductory quest will guide you into a keep, giving you preview of the possibilities.


The following instances are available immediately:

The following instances are no longer available, effective immediately:

  • The Abscess (Hard)

Please note:

If you want to re-enter the Ghillieglade after killing Banyakas, reset the instance in your profile via 'P' > 'Instances' > 'Reset instances'. If you don't, you'll just find an empty dungeon there.

If you die in the Ghillieglade, you will respawn outside the instance. Don’t be overconfident, or if you plan on taking risks, make sure you have a Blessing of the Goddess with you so that you can respawn directly in the dungeon.
