1.3.5 Wrapup

Patch day is here!  Today Mythic will bring the much anticipated 1.3.5 patch to the live servers.  I am pretty excited about this patch, as it adds a lot of great things to WAR. What sort of things does 1.3.5 bring to the table?  I'm glad you asked!

New Stuff

1.3.5 Features. Gutters, Mount Info, Combat Highlighting, new talismans and looting improvements.

1.3.5 Features Part 2. New NPC locations, more bank space, heraldry and tactic resets and item changes.

1.3.5 Features Part 3. Map improvements, dye clearing, more customization options and rally flags.

New Crest Rewards.  New temporary accessories to spend RvR crests on.

Mythic sneaks in a new mount. Rent a new mount with Invader crests.

Speed Kills.  New talismans can be purchased with medallions.

Engineer in 1.3.5.  A look at some of the upcoming changes to the Engineer career.


Vulture Lord Video.  Footage of the improved purge mechanic and the Boss 7 fight. 

1.3.5 City Siege. Video from an early city siege test. 

Battle of Altdorf.  City siege testing video of a very fun final stand in Altdorf.

The Final Battle.  Stage 3 city siege video from the PTS which shows the King fight. 

Mythic Trip

Mythic Day 1.  First round of twitter questions and answers.

Combat and careers.  Q and A with the combat and careers team.

More City Details.  A look at some of the finer details of the new city siege system.

It's been a very interesting couple of months!  For me, it has gone by extremely quick.  Time flies when you are having fun right?  We are already more than half way through May, which means a Producers Letter is right around the corner.  I am very anxious to see how Mythic will follow up 1.3.5 as the bar is now set pretty high.
