    Release 255 has big impact on the PvP. This is the first phase of PvP balance with various changes in skills and gameplay. Goal is to balance number and cooldown of characters' stun skills, armor breaking skills, antistun skills, HP regeneration skills, damage output etc.


    Overall changes and fixes
    • Dragonknight´s skill Furrious Battle Cry can be used as antistun skill now.
    • Dragonknight´s skill Dragon Hide cannot be used as antistun skill anymore.
    • We fixed bug with resource regeneration runes, which were restoring abnormal big amout of resource points per second. This made skill resource cost feature useless, what was never intended. But don´t worry, there are a lot of items, pets, potions and buffs that give some bonus resource points!

    • Stun Immunity Effect now has correct animation.
    • Immunity effects now work against medusa cloak bonus.
    • Grimmag torso's unique values have been fixed and improved.
    • Dragonknight´s Outburst had 30% chance to stun enemies. This was not intended and it is fixed.
    • Dragonknight´s Outburst was regenerating 60 rage. This was not intended and it is fixed.
    • Using Spike shield again, while effect was active did not refresh the duration, this was fixed.
    • Sharr Kharab´s offhand item unique bonus does not work in PvP anymore
    • Jewel of the Easter Fever is now counted into achievements
    • Ranger's Exploding Hit talent now deals physical damage, instead of fire damage.
