- Extra Life Planetouched Wilds Event. Live Content Designer Kerilar has tweeted there is going to be some “ExtraLife craziness” during the Extra Life 24hr gaming charity event. Be sure to head over to the Level 65 Planetouched Wilds zone in Mathosia this Saturday, 7th Nov at 9am PST. He also stated that “There may or may not be players dying to something player-like. In mass quantities” [r].
- Raid Currency Conversion & Pricing Information. CM Ocho has posted up information about various raid gear/currency adjustments happening tomorrow (Hotfix #7). Read full information here. Brief summary of key points:
- Tier 1 store-bought gear will now cost Abyssal Crusader’s Marks.
- Fragments of Horror will be converted to Abyssal Crusader’s Marks at 2:1 ratio. That means every 2 Fragments of Horror will give you 1 Abyssal Crusader’s Marks.
- Conversion does not count towards weekly cap. [r]
- Credit price of Tier 1 gear will drop by 40% after hotfix.
- If you have enough Fragments of Horror, purchase Tier 1 gear before the hotfix this week!
- Be sure to inform friends/guild so they are not caught off-guard by the change tomorrow.
- About Today’s Downtime Message. If you were online earlier in the day, you might have noticed a server message pop up about down-time on Wednesday. This was an automated downtime message that wasn’t removed after Trion pushed the hotfix back to Thursday. [r]
