There are 6 more quests and 4 kill tasks that will be phased in with more Items and Mobs on a Weekly to Biweekly Basis for additional Content in New Roulea. Any characters that do not react when approached are for those incoming quests.
Be prepared for adjustment to drop rates on collection items for balance as we progress.
Mobs are not static; the Mobs may have different weaknesses and strengths even when you do not expect it. Be prepared for out of the box thinking and playstyle.
Dread Privateer will put together a weekly quest night pending a set time to gather players to play together on this content in the coming weeks.
Please continue to leave suggestions in the suggestion channel but remember that is not the place to discuss a suggestion, to properly try and address suggestions that channel needs to be easily navigated and managed. You can debate other suggestions and discuss it elsewhere please. That channel had a large impact on how this content was made and how it works. I truly value the opinions of all the players. We have many different players of many styles and we will be working to provide something for all as we move forward.
Thank you for all of you. For being there through the good times and bad. For sharing the laughs and heartaches with us. For being people that support AC, and the many forms and playstyles it has to offer.
