Percival Patch 2

Guild Season 7 Changes
  • Guild Challenge: guild members can now earn challenge points by doing open-world activities, as with Adventurer's Challenges. At certain thresholds, these challenge points will provide Guild Season Points to the member's guild.
  • Number of tower levels in Crystal Realm Battle system: 3 -> 7
  • GvG attack times have been consolidated to make it harder for one team member to fight multiple GvGs in a day
  • GvG notification messages now more clearly state the conditions leading to Counter-Attacks, decisive victories, and whether or not Silver is returned
  • Changes to Siphoning Mages:
    • Channel duration of Ice Block has been increased to 20 seconds
    • When a channel is started, three Summoned Guardians will appear
    • These Guardians will be normal mobs if less than 8 players are attacking the mage, and veteran mobs if it's 8 or more players attacking
    • The Guardians will drop an area that will replenish players' energy
    • Additionally, a tornado will be summoned that will throw unwary players into the air and deal a little damage
  • The mercenary system has been discontinued for regular GvGs. Mercenaries can still be used in Crystal Realm Battles.
  • Castle Outposts (smaller versions of castles) now appear in the open world. These can be claimed by guilds for season points. They appear four times as often as regular castles, but only give one-fourth of the points.
  • The time window in which a castle can be captured has been greatly reduced
  • Item Power Softcap for 20v20 City Fights:
    • Thetford, Bridgewatch, Martlock: 50% softcap above 1000 IP
    • Fort Sterling, Lymhurst: 50% softcap above 1200 IP
    • Caerleon: no IP cap
  • Maximum City Tax level (set by the guild in possession of the city) has been reduced from 25% to 10%.
  • Updated the Guild Season Rank brackets:
    • Crystal Rank Threshold: 180,000 Season Points
    • Gold Rank Threshold: 60,000 Season Points
    • Silver Rank Threshold: 15,000 Season Points
    • Bronze Rank Threshold: 3,500 Season Points
    • Iron Rank Threshold: 1,000 Season Points
