Update 24 Patch 2 Release Notes


The patch notes are now posted for today’s downtime.

Some good things were included:


Mysterious Remnant Rewards have been updated! Find the vendor in the Hall of Heroes.
Mysterious Remnant non-chest drops now disappear after three minutes.


It’s nice to see they are continuing to tweak the Champions.


The Melee Power boost from Smite and Exalted Smite apply more consistently.
Cyclonic Blast no longer has an additional and unnecessary Saving Throw.


Combat tweaks are always good as well.

Enhancements and Epic Destinies

Stalwart and Sacred Defense should now count as Defensive Stances.
Unyielding Sentinel’s Legendary Shield Mastery no longer works with Orbs.
The Barbarian’s Tantrum ability no longer stops movement.
The Bard Action Boost: Doubleshot now grants Doubleshot.
Vanguard abilities no longer disappear upon death.


I think this the biggest thing in the patch.

Game Performance

Performance improvements have been made to the Divine Crusader’s Wrath of the Righteous.
Shadows in the Forgotten Realms have had their teleportation behavior adjusted.
Some performance improvements have been made to the end fight in Temple of the Deathwyrm.
Some performance improvements have been made to the Magma Brute phase of Fire on Thunder Peak.
Some performance improvements have been made to the Thunderholme wilderness area.
Some adjustments have been made that allow us to better control entity loading (such as land block loading) to increase game performance. Players may see some performance improvements in the coming days as we make adjustments across the game worlds.
Some adjustments have been made to entity unloading to increase game performance.


And always good to see a few fixes/tweaks to quests and adventures.

Quests and Adventure Areas

The number of spiders in several Trial by Fury encounters have been reduced.
The placement of some monsters in Reclaiming the Rift have been adjusted to assist non-ranged characters in completing the quest.
A change has been made to Temple of the Deathwyrm to fix an issue that could prevent certain objectives from bestowing properly.
A String Table Error has been fixed in Don’t Drink the Water.
