The folks over at Mythic
have been epically busy on patches and fixes for Warhammer Online
of late. On Tuesday, we reported on patch 1.0.6
, which brought tons of changes for classes and combat. Now it seems the RvR performance issues are getting some of their previously-promised love
in the form of a client update to help boost frame rate
and reduce flickering effects... And patch 1.1 is live on the test server
with the intention of releasing today.
With a whopping 14 pages of patch notes and development preceding that of 1.0.6, patch 1.1 promises to bring updates
to nearly all aspects of the game. There will be new careers available, UI changes, the ability to hyperlink in chat, and most excitingly the new open RvR influence system. You can even get a statue
of your character put up in the capital. Strike a pose!
On the flip side, since 1.1 was begun prior to the release of 1.0.6, the developers are quick to point out that it is not meant to address any issues arising from the most recent patch. Several hot fixes
already went in yesterday to regular and public quests to make them function as designed since 1.0.6. There are new healers in the Dark Elf
and High Elf
Chapter One areas and one in the Black Crag Order war camp as well. And you should not be getting incorrect zone messages anymore either. Just don't expect 1.1 to fix all the Warhammer
specifies that you should post on your favorite fan sites about how the new client is doing
, let us know what your experience has been.
