    Do you really need to just copy+paste the patch notes…

      Why not ? and official site is buggy most of the time can’t acces to it. So hopefully i can see the patch notes here 😀

    • I do it for every game too. Don’t like it? Don’t read it.

      • Isabella R

        We appreciate it! 😀

    • Shivago Joe

      some people just don’t appreciate the efforts of others. THANK YOU DULFY!!!!

    Any more precise info about this ?

  • Johnny Longstroke

    Wow, I trashed my gear because I could not defend myself or deal damage and the next day they patch the game Blader . . . . wow

  • Darkojin

    That list for the mob fixes that lists them as [Aggressive] might be wrong. The tag that the game uses is [Violent]. Pretty much same thing though.

  • Shivago Joe

    A lot of great and exciting changes. Would be nice to have a little more insight on a couple of the adjustments, like loot drop rate “adjustments” is that a nerf or an enhancement?
