    Una breve descrizione dei contenuti della mega patch tratta da un utente di mmorpgitalia.

    Devono sbrigarsi sicuramente ma non possono permettersi di buttare dentro una patch che sbilanci notevolmente il gioco(nd Max: alcuni si lamentavano che da piķ di 20 giorni la patch ť in test)... in questa patch ci stanno:
    1) Fugitive system
    2) Cambio del funzionamento di tutti i CC
    3) Riorganizzazione del sistema di combo
    4) Risistemazione di 2 classi (HoX e Demonologo)
    5) Risistemazione dell'interfaccia raid e del loot in raid
    6) Risistemazione di tutti i componenti di alchemy e di nuove ricette (che stanno gia' in game anche se non compaiono nella patch notes)
    7) Probabilmente nuove ricette di craft gia' in game ma visto che droppano dai boss ancora non si sono viste.
