Arriving a week later than expected, TRION has outlined the final details for the v1.2 update to the MMORPG.
The v1.2 patch adds quite a few new features including new content. The game update is being dubbed the “Spoils of War” and will add new features such as the LFG tool, Facebook integration, an additional fifth role, the Wardrobe and the new zone events which should really spice things up in open gameplay.
Another major new addition is the new 10 man sliver raids with the first one appearing in Shimmersand which will take players to an alternate reality.
Last week we talked to TRION’s Hal Hanlin about the new features so if you have not read that yet then do check it out as it goes into this update in detail.
To get ready for the update, TRION is also launching a prelude called the Spoils of War where Earth and Fire rifts are opening unexpectedly all across Telara, spilling forth mysterious fragments of golden dragon eggs along with the usual monstrosities. New daily quests will be available in the main cities of Sanctum and Meridian where there will be special rewards up for grabs.
