Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
25 March 2020Queen Patch 8This patch brings several changes to higher-tier resources intended to make high-level gathering more rewarding. Here's what's new:
  • The overall amount of T6, T7, and T8 resources in the world has been increased by 20%.
  • The overall number of T7 and T8 resource nodes has been reduced, but their respawn rate has been increased drastically. In practical terms, this means T7-8 nodes are more sparse, but once a node is found it is much more likely to have charges.
  • Additionally, the likelihood that any given resource node is a Large Node (23-27 charges, see details below) has been increased significantly.

Here's a detailed breakdown of the changes:

  • Overall amount of Tier 6-8 spawning in the world increased by 20%
  • Small Nodes now once again behave as they did with the Queen update. As a reminder:
    • With Queen Update: Small Nodes spawned with a single charge after being depleted.
    • With Queen Patch 5: Small Nodes spawned fully charged, but respawn time was increased accordingly
    • With Patch 8: Small Nodes will again only spawn with a single charge and will charge up over time if not gathered; respawn time has been decreased accordingly
  • Shifted the overall large-to-small ratio to be more in favor of Large Nodes
  • Total number of Tier 8 nodes in the world reduced by 75%, but in turn the respawn rate has increased massively:
    • Large T8 Nodes (27 charges) respawn rate increased by 200%
    • Small T8 Nodes (2 charges) respawn rate increased by 500%
  • Overall amount of Tier 7 nodes in the world reduced by 50%, but in turn their respawn rate has increased greatly:
    • Big T7 nodes (23 charges) respawn rate increased by 180%
    • Small T7 nodes (3 charges) respawn rate increased by 290%
  • Number of T6 nodes in T8 clusters increased by 100%
  • Number of T6 nodes in T7 clusters increased by 33%
  • Chance for Tier 7 and 8 animals to drop a cub has been decreased accordingly, as they now spawn more quickly - their overall drop rates remain the same
10 April 2019Oberon Patch 2 / Free-to-Play LaunchTo prepare for a potential influx of low-level players, the respawn rate of resources in safe and yellow zones has been increased (i.e. the refill time for these resource nodes has been reduced):
  •   T2 respawns about 285% faster (now 21 seconds, was 60s)
  •   T3 respawns about 400% faster (now 45 seconds, was 180s)
  •   T4 respawns about 500% faster (now 100 seconds, was 500s)
  •   T5 respawns about 170% faster (now 450 seconds, was 750s)
21 November 2018Nimue UpdateTier 8 Resource Redistribution
  • T8 resources that were in territories have been redistributed into the open world
  • High-end regions in the Outlands (the faction homebases and the regions around them) now spawn tier 8 resources regularly
  • Since territories are now boosted with Crystal Realm Battles, this is an opportunity to make tier 8 resource harvesting more interesting and more fairly accessible for all guilds

Tier 5 Resource Changes

  • Nodes can now have up to 5 charges (up from 4)
  • Chance of rare resources is doubled in nodes that spawn in Tier 5 zones on the Royal Continent
  • For example, for rarity level 1 resources:
    • Yellow Zones: 12% → 24%
    • red: 20% → 40%
