Patch 1.0.4 is live this morning and Witching Night (the live Halloween event) has begun. Because the servers are down I am unable to provide screen shots. Those will come in a few days.
Here are the relevant notes for RVR:
- The successful capture of an enemy battlefield objective now rewards the capturing players with experience.
- In response to player feedback, the amount of renown earned from healing players has been increased slightly
Read the rest of the patch notes on the Warhammer Herald.
There is also more information about the two new classes, Blackguard and Knight of the Blazing Sun. Apparently there is going to be a server-wide live event to introduce the two classes to the game starting November 17:
When the Heavy Metal live event (the event to introduce the Blackguard and KotBS) begins on November 17th, players who log into WAR will see a new tab in the Tome of Knowledge. Clicking on this tab will open the Live Events page, where each day we’ll place a new daily task. Completing these daily tasks earns influence, just like you’d earn in a public quest. There are rewards for Basic, Advanced and Elite influence, culminating in the ultimate prize: the chance to play WAR’s new classes a full week before they’re released to the public! This last reward won’t be easy to earn, and players who want to get to the Elite level will need to log in each day and complete on the daily event.
Hrm, and I bet they are PVE tasks. Let’s hope not all of them.
There’s also going to be an exclusive Tier 4 scenario during the time of the live event:
Participation in this scenario will give players an extra 10% bonus to their Renown point gain.
