Balance Changes
Our recent milestone focus has been polishing and refining the gameplay experience to achieve the highest quality possible at launch, and as we get closer to launch many systems are seeing numerical tweaks to take us from a state of Beta testing to what we expect to Launch with and use as a basis for the future. (for example, we've altered the level 30+ XP curve)  In some cases, content that was only in the game to help out the testing experience has been removed. (older potions and things) In other cases, new systems have come online in this last milestone, which have allowed us to remove older placeholder content in favor of an updated form of that content. (ie Weapon Weights / Specialty Seals turning into Enchants).

New Enchanting Feature
The Enchanting system introduces the opportunity for further customization of player-crafted advanced+ Weapons and Armor. Items can be enchanted one time, using enchants found in a variety of forms in the open-world content. The process of enchanting items starts with recipes found in your crafting book’s Enchanting section, which is part of the Crafting Menu - simply press “J” in-game - to open your crafting menu.

Transmog Feature
For our Kickstarter Backers, we now have a process through which you can claim the “Arcane Weapon Set” reward using the ‘transmogrification’ process (already in-game). To activate the process, open your Crafting Menu - simply press “J” in-game - then search for the ‘Arcane Weapon Set’ recipe. This recipe turns any advanced+ crafted weapon into an Arcane Weapon via the recipe found under the ‘Backers’ section of your crafting book. Enjoy using your Arcane Weapon set!

Wipe Status
We will be wiping the game data from the service as part of the release of the upcoming 6.540 update coming later this month. We try to avoid wiping the service whenever possible. However, it is necessary to remove the old data from the service as we get ready for the final update (6.550), to ensure quality at launch. There also will be one final wipe to the game service coinciding with Crowfall’s launch on July 6th.

Gods Reach 4
The Fourth Chapter of the New Player Experience will bridge from early leveling, primarily player-vs-environment, to giving players a taste of the larger player-vs-player strategy game.

This chapter covers the basic mechanics of a siege, how victory cards work and gives players a sense of the diverse activities you can participate in Crowfall. You will learn the basics of taking control of a Stronghold, a Fort, and even building and defending a Keep as you move into more dangerous areas that offer greater risk but also greater rewards as you prepare for PvP in Skypoint and Dregs!

End of Campaign Reward Structure Improvements!

Conquest: Rewards are bestowed to the guilds who score 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in Conquest points. In addition, all guilds who participate and score Conquest points will be eligible to receive rewards! Reward tiers are separated into the top 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and any percent.

Glory, Wealth, and Power: The number of guilds eligible to receive rewards and the size of each reward tier has been increased! Rewards tiers are now separated into the top 20%, 40%, and 60% of scoring guilds for each point category.

Soulbinding item tech has arrived!
These items will have a Bind on Equip Restriction tag on them until equipped the first time.
Once equipped the first time, the item transitions from Bind on Equip, to No Drop No Trade.
Disciplines now fall under the Soulbind category.
A Soulbound Discipline can now be unequipped.
Disciplines will no longer be destroyed when unequipped.
Discipline unequipping still requires the player to be located in the Temple zone.
