Furthermore, after long consideration we decided to remove the Sealed Sites from the game, read the exclusive statement about it, and as always, we have fixed a variety of bugs.

    New Features

    Destructible objects added

    We want to add more fun by allowing the player to have more impact on the environment. Therefore, we started to implement a range of new objects that burst or get smashed when skills hits them.

    The following maps now have new destroyable objects:

    • The Misty Ridge
    • Gleaming Mountains
    • Thunder Crest
    • Stalgard
    Visit those maps and have fun creating havoc in the Dwarven realm Myrdosh!;)

    More maps with more new destroyable objects will follow in future releases!
