Blood and Madness is a release that was launched on October 15, 2013.

Features[edit]

  • Mad King's Clock Tower - Tyria's most maddening jumping puzzle thrilled players during last year's Halloween event and returns better than ever.
  • Mad King's Labyrinth - Bloody Prince Edrick has taken over parts of the Mad King's Labyrinth and is controlling the undead armies in the Mad King's Realm. The Skeletal Lich, Grand High Viscount of Candy Corn, and the Labyrinthine Horror lie in wait.
  • Haunted Door - Players can trick-or-treat at haunted doors across Kryta. Beware: Knocking isn't without risk.
  • Lunatic Inquisition - Players can put their PvP skills to the test in the Mad King's Labyrinth. Play as a villager trying to survive the night or a lunatic courtier intent on destruction. Survival tools and hidden secrets are waiting to be discovered.

Balance update[edit]

  • Combat Quality of Life Fixes - Improvements to combat include new ground targeting options, better targeting, and a new, optional way to display condition damage numbers.
  • Trait and Skill Tooltips - Updates to the tooltip system for traits and skills mean traits will now display numbers, and skill tooltips will show how skills are affected by equipped traits.
  • Balance Updates - Existing skills and traits have received a balance pass with a focus on improving support builds in all parts of the game for all professions.
