Update - February 11, 2020

Living World

As Jormag's influence continues to grow throughout the region, Drakkar and its minions grow more powerful.

  • Drakkar's damage output has been increased.
  • Drakkar's defiance bar has been strengthened.
  • Drakkar's health scaling has been decreased.
  • Drakkar has gained new abilities.
  • The spirit champions in the Drakkar encounter have had their health and damage outputs increased.
  • The duration of Spiritual Binding has been increased from 4 minutes to 8 minutes.
  • Certain attacks that were increasingly hard to avoid will no longer remove the Nimble Onslaught Eligibility effect.
  • Fixed a bug with the application time of Nimble Onslaught Eligibility.
  • The Truly Nimble Onslaught achievement has been added to the pool of Drakkar achievements.
    • This achievement allows for a higher hit-count threshold.
    • This achievement rewards a new title.
  • The Nimble Onslaught achievement is no longer attainable, and it will be hidden if your progress was incomplete.
  • The number of achievements required to complete the Drakkar meta-achievement has been reduced from 10 to 8.
  • All players will now be dismounted in the Drakkar world boss area when the event begins. Players entering the area after the event begins will also be dismounted.
  • Missed falling ice orbs will now have greater consequences for any players who did not participate in absorbing their effects.
  • With greater risks come greater rewards. Drakkar rewards have been updated with a new Broken Voice ascended weapon set, as well as other additions. Defeating Drakkar will also give an increased amount of experience once per day.
  • Cloudseeker's optional conversation at the end of the Chasing Ghosts chapter of "Shadow in the Ice" can now be accessed by all players within the instance.
  • An additional dialogue option has been added to an NPC in the final instance of "Shadow in the Ice."

  • Offerings in the Wolverine Shrine in Bjora Marches will no longer fuse with the offering table.
  • Moving blizzard areas in Bjora Marches have been adjusted to better align with visual effects.
  • The "Defeat the threat to the festivities" events in Grothmar Valley have a longer delay between the map indication and the threat appearing. This should make it easier for players chasing the Party Guardian achievement to reach the events in time.
  • Dodging when the last stack of freezing cold hits during a blizzard will no longer result in being permanently frozen.
  • The first step of "Shadow in the Ice" has had its text updated to indicate that players should meet Jhavi at Jora's Keep.
