Related Patch Notes

Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
17 March 2021Call to Arms Update
  • Instanced areas (i.e. Hideouts) and tunnel zones are now included in the queue functionality, meaning players can now skip overcrowded zones outside their Hideouts and can skip into tunnel zones
  • Cluster Skipping is now possible when relogging into an overcrowded cluster
  • The Smart Cluster Queue now also activates in all Royal Continent zones:
    • This change makes large-scale Faction Warfare battles possible on the Royal Continent
    • Each Faction counts as its own contingent
    • Cluster Access Priority settings do NOT impact Faction-flagged players
    • The queue assigns at least 50 spots per Faction, even if they are vastly outnumbered
    • 50 spots are also reserved for non-Faction-flagged players, to prevent Faction players from completely blocking zones for other players
  • Improved the UI for cluster skipping:
    • Now all available zones are immediately selectable
    • Opening the world map will no longer cancel cluster selection
    • The cluster selection screen now provides more info about the cluster:
      • Tier and danger level (i.e. red or yellow) of the target cluster
      • Distance to the selected cluster (i.e. how many zones will be jumped)
2 February 2021Rise of Avalon Patch 13 (Balance Patch)Consumable items that commonly collect in large stacks can now be used in a single click via the new Use All Button in the item UI.
  • Stacks of Silver Bags will be consumed instantly and grant you the full amount of Silver
  • Tomes of Insight and chests use a channeled spell, meaning the items are still consumed individually and the channel can be canceled at any point.
  • The following items now have a "Use All" option:
    • All Silver Bags
    • All Tomes of Insight
    • All Reward Chests (will display an additional window showing accumulated loot): Adventurer's Challenge Chests, Crystal League Chests, etc.
21 October 2020Rise of Avalon Patch 7 / Brimstone & Mist Midseason Update and Hotfix 7.1The following changes give players more control over how they set up armies for the queue. Player sorting is now done on a per-party level, meaning the system will attempt to keep existing parties together:
  • Party leaders can now assign a Party Cluster Access Priority for their party as well as for individual members in the Cluster Access Priority UI (accessed via the party leader's player context menu)
  • Priority Access determines the order in which parties will enter an overcrowded cluster
  • This gives alliances more control over which forces are moved into the cluster and keeps party structures intact
  • The Preferred Cluster Access Guild Right has been removed
  • The queue now moves players from a single contingent either in or out during a given cycle, so players of the same contingent no longer replace each other
21 October 2020Rise of Avalon Patch 7 / Brimstone & Mist Midseason Update and Hotfix 7.1New Disarray parameters ensure the ZvZ meta plays out in a similar way across a wide range of fight sizes, while still offering smaller groups protection from large armies:
  • Disarray is no longer a flat debuff
  • Instead, it reduces damage output and CC Duration when attacking targets with a lower Disarray level
  • Against targets with the same or higher Disarray level, Disarray has no impact on your stats
  • Damage reduction depends on the difference of Disarray levels between attacker and target - the higher the difference, the greater the effect
  • Increased Disarray player cap; debuff now caps at Level 50 for 450 players
21 October 2020Rise of Avalon Patch 7 / Brimstone & Mist Midseason Update and Hotfix 7.1
  • AoE Escalation:
    • Escalation now increases by 8% for each additional target hit and caps at 40% extra damage:
      • 2 Targets hit = 8%
      • 3 Targets hit = 16%
      • 4 Targets hit = 24%
      • 5 Targets hit = 32%
      • 6+ Targets hit = 40%
  • 12 August 2020Rise of Avalon Update and Hotfix 1, 2
    • AoE Escalation max bonus: 100% → 70%
    • Maximum Ability Damage Increase from buffs: +150% → +100%
    20 February 2019Nimue Balance Patch (Patch #7)General Balance Changes
    • Base Max Hitpoints: 1000 → 1200 (bonus HP from melee weapons remains unchanged)
      • This increases the general Hitpoint pool by 20%
    • Base Max Energy: 100 → 120
      • This increases the general Energy pool by 20%
    • Base Movement Speed: 4.8 m/s → 5.5 m/s
    • In-Combat Duration: 30s → 20s
    • Cap for Auto Attack Max Damage Increase: 200% → 300%
