Update - December 12, 2017[edit]

Wintersday[edit]

Come join us in celebrating Wintersday—Toymaker Tixx has made his annual visit to Divinity's Reach to spread seasonal cheer and festivity! Complete daily achievements to earn fanciful holiday weapons new and old, save Wintersday by giving wrapped gifts to the orphans around Divinity's Reach, test your snow-throwing skills against other players in Snowball Mayhem, experience the joy of jumping in Winter Wonderland, defend against waves of toys in Toypocalypse, and help keep Tixx's airship, the Infinirarium, in order! You'll also see Wintersday gifts appearing all around Tyria.

  • Wintersday achievements have been split into three categories: "Wintersday Traditions" for repeatable achievements and annual achievements that can be completed once a year, "The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx" for one-time festival achievements, and "Winter's Presence" for one-time achievements that give items for the Winter's Presence collection.
  • The Wintersday meta-achievement "A Season of Merriment" is earned by completing Wintersday daily achievements and can be repeated to collect even more gifts.
  • Race fever is spreading, and a new seasonal race event has been unveiled in Divinity's Reach! Speed through the streets on your favorite mount, or dash through the falling snow on foot to earn new annual and daily achievements. Festivalgoers who haven't earned an official mount license can speak with a race coordinator to temporarily rent a mount for a small fee.
  • A second entrance has been added to Toypocalypse to allow coordinated adventurers to form a group ahead of time for the activity. Toypocalypse has also had a number of bug fixes and updates in both the grouped and match-made versions:
    • Skritt mercenaries have been reduced in number from 6 to 4 and can now be found on either side of the airship.
    • Sword-wielding skritt mercenaries now have an additional skill and increased toughness.
    • Rifle-wielding skritt mercenaries now have an additional skill.
    • Visual tracking of scrap donations to skritt mercenaries has been added to allow players to see how close they are to being hired.
    • Fully upgraded defenses can now be partially repaired by interacting with them while carrying the appropriate bundle.
  • The Winter Wonderland jumping puzzle has been updated: Each of its three routes now presents jumpers with a different difficulty, ranging from the sedate and scenic Quaggan Route to the fast-paced Gingerbread Route. Adventurers will face colder temperatures and less-stable platforms on the harder routes, but they will find greater rewards waiting for them at the end of the climb! Several bugs and timing issues have also been addressed, making a safer experience for all participants.
  • New Wintersday-themed guild decorations have been added.
  • Wintersday decorations in Divinity's Reach have been updated. Toymaker Tixx assures citizens that the falling snow generated by the Infinirarium is completely safe.
  • Wintersday rewards have been streamlined to reduce inventory clutter and excessive inventory management. A new snowflake item has been introduced.
  • Enjoy the festivities for the next three weeks!

World Polish[edit]

  • Fixed a bug in which Orphan Laine could send his letter to players who were already helping the orphans.
  • Removed the "Enter the item's name below to confirm before destroying" requirement from Orphan Laine's letter.
  • Fixed a bug in which Toymaker Tixx and Orphan Laine could send their letters to players twice during the Wintersday festival.
  • Updated the locations of some orphans, festival guides, and magic snow piles in Divinity's Reach to avoid nearby decorations.
  • Updated the icon for the Lunatic's Fashion achievement to match its Halloween category.
  • Added a small but tasty reward for successful test participants in the Proxemics Lab guild puzzle.

Fractals[edit]

Twilight Oasis[edit]

  • Increased the evade duration of the Enhanced Reflexes special action skill by 100%.
  • Reduced the radius of the wind pull for all tornadoes.
  • Increased the aftercast of High Priestess Amala's Wings of Rage attack by 0.5 seconds.

Profession Skills[edit]

Developer Note : In this extra balance update, we're looking to reduce the overall burst potential of damaging conditions throughout the game. We've done this by reducing the number of condition stacks inflicted while increasing the applied duration so that overall damage remains similar (with a bit of variance one way or the other). In addition, we've evaluated some of the vulnerability applications via the trait system and have reworked some of the guaranteed high up-time traits, pushing the vulnerability into more guaranteed—but limited—moments during combat. Finally, there have been a few profession-specific changes aimed at improving the general health of the game.

General[edit]

Barrier: The application of the barrier effect no longer resets the delay or decay of existing barriers. Barrier no longer decays over time; each application now disappears after 5 seconds, and all skills that grant barrier now give 15% more barrier.

Movement Skills: Camera facing no longer reduces the travel distance of these skills.

Interrupts and Defiance: Skills, traits, and sigils that have bonus effects when interrupting foes will now activate when used against foes with defiance bars as though they had been interrupted. Note that this does not require a creature's defiance bar to be active, just that the creature be using a skill when an interrupt effect is applied. To prevent abuse against bosses with long attack windups, a 3-second cooldown between activations of these skills has been added to skills without existing cooldowns. This cooldown is only applied when interrupting foes with defiance bars. This change affects the following game elements:
