BioWare Mythic has released a few new updates on Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
in the 1.3.6. patch. The patch introduces a few enhancements to both gameplay and the nitty gritty of an MMORPG.
For what is probably more worth a nice bonus than a necessary addition is the new Alternate Item Appearance System
. Upgrading your armory is swell and all, but have you ever felt like that epic skull helmet was irreplaceable no matter the stats of the new, plain one you just picked up? I certainly have, and was met with lecturing from my guild master on “fashion versus function.” Now you can retain the look of whatever armor you like, choosing the set with the best stats to go along with it.
Against All Odds
provides more equal grounding in RvR, providing a bonus scale to Experience, Renown and Influence once a realm is outnumbered in a Lake by 20%+.
BioWare Mythic is also introducing a revamped Sovereign Armor
with Split Sets
. That means that each career gets a choice of armor selection.
Finally, the Auction House
gets a few UI enhancements, making it simpler and less convoluted with options that BioWare Mythic found to be least used.
The patch is live now, so get to gaming and tinkering with these new features.
Alternate Item Appearance System
No longer do players have to sacrifice their sense of fashion in the name of better stats! To allow players options to customize their appearance players now have the option of selecting the appearance of any piece of equipment while at the same time choosing their best option for statistics.
Against All Odds
Against All Odds: A Realm outnumbered within an RvR Lake will now receive a scaling bonus to Experience, Renown and Influence based on the odds stacked against them, becoming active when a Realm is outnumbered in a specific Lake by 20% or more.
Sovereign Armor Split Sets
The Sovereign Armor sets have been redesigned! We have introduced Split armor sets, giving each Career multiple options of armor selection based on their play style. Players who already have Sovereign Armor sets will find that their armor has been replaced with the newly redesigned "Primary" sets for each Career.
Auction House Enhancements!
The Auction House UI has been updated! In order to improve the user experience, we have removed some of the least used options to provide a more simple and easy to use tool.
