Issue 14: Architect Releases! Edit

Issue 14: Architect has been released to the Live Servers. Go forth, create your own stories, or conquer your fellow players' custom critters! Gotta collect 'em all!

Here are some important changes you need to be aware of:

  • NCsoft will be granting a @Global Chat Handle rename token with the Issue 14 launch. To change your global chat handle, type /change_handle "Player Name" in the chat line or click on "Chat Handle (X)" from the drop down "Menu" option.
  • NCsoft will be granting a (1) free respec to each active character, to enable your freespec please type /respec on the build you wish to change.
  • The /help command will now bring up the in-game Help Menu System. This essentially replicates choosing "Help" from the drop down Menu option. We found that many players did not know that we had an in-game Help system.
  • Players wishing to chat on the server wide "Help Channel" will now have to type in /hc.
  • Super Leader is now active. Please follow the instructions here to change leadership.
  • Active accounts will no longer have items placed on consignment deleted after 60 days of inactivity.
  • Taskforce Random Recipe Roll has been combined with Trial Random Recipe Roll to form the Random Rare Recipe Roll at Merit Vendors.
  • Additionally, recipes in this combined drop pool have a very small chance of dropping off of boss critters.
