Runes of Magic Patch Notes 2.0.8.1840

A lot of patchy goodness this week with RoM getting a sizable update as well as WoW.  I wouldn’t call it equal to WoW’s, oh wait…yes I would.  Hey, isn’t it funny how RoM and WoW have some big updates coming, and also had a smaller “pre-update patch” that just came out.  Oh the sometimes wacky world of business.  On to the patch.

  • Changes of required materials of „Recipe-Enhanced Fierce Warrior’s Axe”

Known Issues

  • Players can spawn at another place after login, if they logged out within the guild hall.

I’m very pleased to see some recipe readjustments-they really do love us crafters, they really really do.  Although I was hoping that they’d include the plant system they teased us about over a week ago.

Seeing bug fixes is always good. No matter what it is.  No one wants bugs of any kind in a game.

I see many skills pertaining to rogues and scouts got nerfed.  I’m looking forward to a whole afternoon of humorous nerdrage on the RoM forums.

No more special event for the time being.  The Music Festival is over.  No matter, I wasn’t any good at it anyways.  But I hope they add a new event soon, it’s nice to have them.  They bring players together, and overpopulate previously underpopulated areas, and bring together players of all levels.

How’s the new patch treating you? Is the new targeting system a major difference? or is it a nice touch?  Has it taken you up a couple PvP ranks?  What are you overall thoughts, opinions, comments on this patch and the upcoming “big update”?
