Next Patch Will Fix Ring Of Cowardice, Add New Life Lockbox

Terramak posted new patch notes to the preview section of the official forum. The first update of 2016 comes with a major bugfix in terms of PVP gameplay. The inglorious Ring of Cowardice, which is frustrating most of the playerbase ever since module launch will finally correctly respect its ICD.

Ring of Cowardice: The effect on this ring now properly has an internal cooldown.terramak

Alongside quite a few QoL changes, stability fixes and achievement addition for Underdark content, the next more interesting change is the removal of Mount Upgrades from the Wondrous Bazaar. Terramak followed up by stating that there will be additional info soon.

Can’t go into detail yet on the Mount Training Manuals, sorry. Related news will be coming soonish, though I’m sure you’re all familiar with what “soon” means in game development terms, haha.terramak

Based on the new mount powers and stats we already suggested last June that a greater change to mounts might be due, because old mounts are currently rendered useless.

The patch will also add the new lockbox “New Life” to the game that seems to include a whole new set of baby (augment) companions with extremely powerful active bonuses. The lockbox does not include a Genie’s Gift, but a version of the Tarmalune Trade Bar Jackpot that does not auto-open and can be sold on the auction house. The included Artifact was originally listed for the Demon Slayer lockbox and we haven’t checked whether that’s still the case. It could also simply be a placeholder. The new life lockbox does not fit the Underdark theme anyway, so it might still be a few months away.
