Mythic Entertainment has released Game Update 1.0.3 to the Warhammer Online servers this morning. Lots of new additions and changes have been made that will make healers cry, encourage chat amongst the regions and make the mobs visible at all times.
-A Ânew mailÂ icon has been added to the edge of the minimap to alert players when new mail messages have arrived.
-In order to provide a more challenging and rewarding experience, we have adjusted the overall speed at which players can gain control of zones and move the campaign.
-Chapter-based chat channels have been replaced with a farther reaching chat system, referred to as Region Chat. A region is defined as the contiguous zones that make up a tier-based racial pairing area. For example, Blighted Isle and Chrace make up one region. Region Chat consists of two channels, Region and Region-RvR.
-Monsters should no longer disappear and then reappear when attacked at range by players.
-Renown gained from healing players was granting more renown than intended over long periods of time. Players who heal other players will still earn renown for aiding their friends in combat, but large heals or repeated heal-over-time spells will result in lesser renown gains than before.
