  • Society armor now works with layering kits.
  • Asheron's Castle now has specialization statues. Specialization statues have been simplified.
  • The cost of major armatures has been adjusted back to a cost of 1.
  • Healing animations are now shorter. The heal comes earlier in the animation.
  • The value of massive mana stones has been restored. Massive mana stones can no longer be sold.
  • Dual Wield has been changed to COORD + COORD / 3.
  • Weapon masteries are now universal. All characters get the benefit of 5 DR when using a weapon with a mastery, regardless of the character's mastery. Weapon that previously had no mastery bonus at all still don't give 5 DR.
  • The number of creatures in the PK Luminance arena have been reduced.
  • A brand new Coliseum to challenge players and top end characters has been added.
  • A weapon upgrade system that creates Paragon Weapons has been added to the game. Characters can slowly enhance their favorite weapons by forging them into Paragon weapons. The process that will send characters all over Dereth to prove themselves by completing heroic tasks and gaining Luminance. Though the process is involved, Paragon weapons gain levels and empower the user with substantial benefits. The process can enhance melee weapons, missile weapons or casters. (This process will work on most quest and loot weapons that do not already have set spells.)
  • Enlightenment has been added to the game. A system designed for our most dedicated players, Enlightenment allows a character who has reached the pinnacle of levels and Luminance to let it all go and start over. The process of Enlightenment is certainly not for the faint of heart, but enlightenment will provide an avenue for players to prove that they are some of the most hardcore players of the game.
    • An enlightened character proves themselves by sacrificing all experience, levels, Luminance, and Luminance augmentations.
    • The character starts fresh, gaining a title, an extra point in all trained and specialized skills, and two extra Vitality points. ~ Enlightened characters retain their normal augmentations. They no longer have to spend experience points on those augmentations as they level.
