Sadly, we found out yesterday that the upcoming 1.4.5 patch will not be on the PTS in time for the impeding holidays. It seems they had some technical issues on their internal servers which forced them to hold off for now. That doesn't mean there is nothing happening to tide us over for the break. Be sure to read the rest of James' update.
So what are we getting?
Bonus RP. For as long as Keg's End runs run there will be a holiday bonus to RP and XP.
Dev Discussion. They will post some of the details involving relics and forts later this week.
Scenario Update. The new scenario lineup will be pushed out prior to the holiday break. This includes two 6 vs 6 scenarios: Gates of Ekrund and Caledor Woods.
One community member had this idea:
One thing that would be very WELCOMED would be unlocking Eternal Citadel during IC siege and unlocking College of Corruption (6v6) during Altdorf siege.
Sounds good to me, and James also said: "I can look at that for the future as something to do, sure."
While it is disappointing that 1.4.5 did not make it to the PTS, these things happen. Luckily there is plenty to keep me busy ( Holidays, SWTOR, Skyrim ) in the mean time.
