It's here! The holiday season
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51590" target="_blank">has begun,
and the residents of Warhammer Online are celebrating Dwarf
style, with beer, fireworks and bloodshed. Keg End requires that all
leftover ale from the past year to be
finished off to maintain good luck, and evidence of this massive
drinking effort is everywhere.
style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> Keg End was even mentioned in style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"

Report on G4!

Be sure to check the special Live Event tab in your Tome of Knowledge
and take note of the tasks assigned to every player.

drained and Explosive Snotlings exploded to earn your way toward
special event awards. Now, get out there and do your part, and enjoy
the holidays!

Christmas rapidly approaches (watch out - Thursday the 25th comes
quickly!), but players got an early gift from Mythic Entertainment's
Mark Jacobs.

href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51815" target="_blank">Rested XP
has been increased, making it
that much faster to gain your experience levels. So take advantage of
the bonus, log out of the game for awhile and start wrapping those
presents early.

the Fortress is a-Rockin'

...don't bother knockin' as that T4 zone is soon to crash. From the
words of many others and my own personal experience in several
defensive battles this past week, the current server set ups are just
not capable of handling the population that participates in the T4
Fortress raids. With hundreds of players battling in one spot, no
assault went on too long before the zone crashed and booted all players
back to another zone. The frustration felt by the players involved is
echoed by the Dev team themselves, as they style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51411" target="_blank">worked
tirelessly to add
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51663" target="_blank">fixes
to help offset the href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51831" target="_blank">stability

Here's hoping for a Beer-mas miracle to bring peace
(ahaha wait - this
is WAR!) a stable fix to the RvR stability issues. Massive battles are
glorious. My Bright Wizard loves to Rain of Fire all the silly Destro
chopping at the doors. This is the heart of the game and it needs to be
fixed immediately. A Beautiful Death is not achieved by crashing and
re-logging in a different zone. Please, Father Mythic, bring me a full
scale city siege for Beer-Mas?

style="font-weight: bold;">Hotfix Highlights

Hotfixes were everywhere this week as the Devs worked to push
out changes as fast as they could code them. Wondering what you may
have missed? The Nordenwatch Scenario returned and Renown points were
adjusted on href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51474" target="_blank">Tuesday.
Morale abilities now href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51660" target="_blank">react
differently to crowd control skills.  style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51814" target="_blank">Guild
were capped to only affect 36 members of the Realm fighting nearby.
This is a no-brainer change to help server performance in the large
battles. Some weapon identity problems were fixed, better barriers were
built in Serpent's Passage and siege weapons have been style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/51830" target="_blank">beefed up.

of the Week

style="border: 0px solid ; width: 250px; height: 199px;">

The Open Realm
versus Realm Influence system offers great rewards for those who work
to fill their influence bars. When the time comes to pick up your
reward, head to your local warcamp and find the Rally Master.

You'll have a choice of 4 pieces of gear to choose from at each
Influence level.
