Living World[edit]

New Release: Jormag Rising[edit]

The imposing wall of ice that once blocked all ingress to Dominion territory in the Drizzlewood Coast has receded, and the United Legions leaps at the chance to regain the upper hand. But this ice did not simply melt on its own. A terrifying force is absorbing this dreadful magic, pulling it north toward a massive citadel of ice, back into its owner: Jormag. Join forces with the leaders of the United Legions, sneak your way into enemy territory, and strike at the foul heart of Bangar's Dominion.

  • Speed of Synergy.png Speed of Synergy: Fixed a bug that showed the radius for this trait's effect as 360 rather than the correct radius of 240.


  • Chronophantasma.png Chronophantasma: Fixed a bug that could cause this trait to daze resummoned phantasms more than once.
