Return to Ekrund Changes

Warhammer Online's Return to Ekrund Live Event has been in full swing for a few weeks now.  Overall, it has been a fun event, but there have been a few problems. In particular, the clue quests and the Attack/Defend quests have been a bit of a pain for players to complete.

These woes have not fallen on deaf ears.  Yesterday, changes were made to the events task list which should make the event easier to complete.

The Attack/Defend tasks have been removed from the Return to Ekrund event. They have been replaced by a task to kill enemy-allies (meaning, the two other non-GvD races of the enemy realm) in any ORvR area, and a task to kill enemies in any GvD scenario.
In addition, the clue requirement for the Quest has been lowered to 2 (down from 10), so you now only need 20 clues total for the event task (instead of 100, as it was before).

These changes should make the event easier to complete and overall much more enjoyable.  Requiring 80 fewer clues is quite a nice change :)   Before I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to obtain the elite reward, now I am going to try.
