Living World[edit]

Roller Beetle Racing[edit]

The latest trend from Elona is sweeping Tyria—roller beetle racing! Whether you're a rolling legend, a rookie racer, or a spectator ready to see the greatest thrills this side of Ascalon, you'll want to check out one of these organized races. Courses have been set up in Gendarran Fields, Brisban Wildlands, Mount Maelstrom, Snowden Drifts, and Diessa Plateau. Or if you need to get a feel for riding a beetle, try the test track in Kessex Hills!

The racecourses are a permanent installation, but as a special offer in celebration of their grand opening, daily prizes will be awarded during the first month to racers who complete a rotating selection of race events:

General[edit]

  • Rings and accessories can now be equipped directly to their second slot through a new right-click option.

Items[edit]

  • Sigils of Air: These will no longer stack when using combinations of minor, major, and superior sigils.
  • Sigils of Battle: Fixed a bug in which these sigils granted less might than intended when weapon skills changed through the use of a profession mechanic.
  • Sigils of Energy: These will no longer stack when using combinations of minor, major, and superior sigils.
  • Sigils of Icebrood Slaying: Corrected the text on the description of these sigils from "control" to "pain."
  • Sigils of Transference: These will no longer stack when using combinations of minor, major, and superior sigils.
  • Sigils of Impact: These will no longer stack when using combinations of minor, major, and superior sigils. Fixed a bug in which these sigils did not grant their full damage increases.
  • Superior Sigil of Torment: Fixed a bug that caused this sigil to inflict one stack of torment instead of two.
  • Superior Rune of the Pack: The duration of the boons granted by the 6-piece bonus of this rune set has been reduced from 10 seconds to 8 seconds. The cooldown has been returned to its previous duration of 30 seconds, and it will now trigger while in combat rather than upon entering combat.
  • Superior Rune of the Mirage: Fixed a bug with the 6-piece bonus of this rune set in which it only worked at melee range and its cooldown displayed improperly.

  • Superior Rune of Sanctuary: The barrier gained from this rune is now granted by the healer.
  • Superior Rune of Vampirism: Fixed a bug in which the 6-piece bonus of this rune set healed defeated players.
  • A new jewelcrafting recipe has been added that allows players to transmogrify azurite crystals into azurite orbs.
