    Live Event 'Demonic Incursion'

    To summon or kill a powerful Daemon or group of Daemons is an impressive feat and many Champions of Chaos will purposefully take on the challenge. Those that succeed are worthy of notice by the Chaos Gods. If the original challenger fails to kill the Daemon, then it is free in The Old World and will wreck havoc until defeated. In any case, both the Forces of Order and the Forces of Destruction have something to gain by defeating these Daemons.

    Please note that the Live Event won't be active on PTS.
    Scenario Shakeup

    The tide of battle continues to shift! A number of old scenarios are making their return, some are retiring for the moment, and others are shifting tiers.

    • Cities will now be limited to 3 active scenarios per contested cycle.

    General Changes & Bug Fixes

    • The range of the Knight of the Blazing Sun ability, Shatter Confidence, has been reduced to 5 feet.
    • Many abilities classified as 'Crowd Control' have had their duration's standardized based on targeting, and if it's an Ability or a Morale. With only minor exceptions for abilities keyed off Career Mechanic Buildup, the following changes have been applied:
      • Knockdowns
        • 2s - Knockdown, AoE Ability
        • 3s - Knockdown, ST Ability or AoE Morale
        • 4s - Knockdown, ST Morale
      • Staggers
        • 3s - Stagger, AoE Ability
        • 6s - Stagger, ST Ability or AoE Morale
        • 9s - Stagger, ST Morale
      • Roots
        • 5s - Root, Ability
        • 10s - Root, Morale
    • These changes have been applied as part of the first phase of a Career Balance cycle. While we are not moving a "true mirror" system, we do feel there are some standards that should be in place with regards to these categories. As with this current CC update, abilities which scale based on Career Mechanic Buildup will always be treated as an exception, or at the very least, as a separate category to be to be given further consideration and extra scrutiny.
