Patch 3.21.2 – Halloween!
October 12, 2016

This patch reintroduces the Spooky Town event zone, complete with tons of new Halloween-themed mounts, outfits and more!

Improvements

  • Spooky Town has arrived! New toys, a new outfit, and a mount in the event. Also as stated before, this event relies a lot less on luck. Several of the mechanics in the event zone guarantee (or at least give you a very high success chance) at some progress.
  • New zone map for Spooky Town.
  • Added a feature that broadcasts a server message to alert players that an event boss has spawned (e.g. Spooky Druda). This way all players will know and have time to make it to the required area for the attack. (Note: because incarnations are special spawns, they will not broadcast a server message, but still broadcast a zone wide message for those already in Spooky Town).
  • Added a Fallen Heroes memorial in Ardent City.
  • Made some under the hood efficiency changes that should help the game run generally smoother, particularly when a lot of players are in the same zone, and even more particularly when a lot of players are all engaged with the same elder boss (like event zones).

Bugfixes

As usual we have also fixed a lot of bugs and changed a few more things.
