Queen Patch 13 - Ver. 1.16.396 / REV 167506 (Windows: REV 167575) - 4 June 2020

Arena Changes and Fixes

  • Adjusted Arena Rewards:
    • Fame Bonus per win: 20,000 → 40,000
    • Healers now get an additional 10,000 Fame per win via an additional Tome of Insight
    • An Arena win now also gives 1,000 Adventurer's Challenge points
  • Improved Arena Signup UI:
    • Now shows all daily rewards and the different rewards for healers vs. other roles
    • Shows time until new daily rewards can be won
    • Style synced with Crystal League Signup UI
    • Clarified and shortened wording
  • Improved appearance and wording of "Match Ready" popup
  • Fixed an issue where Arena registration would sometimes cancel before the current countdown ended
  • Fixed an issue where the Arena UI would not display more than one queued player

Increased Availability of Blue and Yellow Zone Solo Randomized Dungeons

When a player enters a Solo Randomized Dungeon in a blue or yellow zone and no other player uses the portal in a certain time, the entry portal will disappear while the player is still inside the dungeon. Players already inside the dungeon can remain inside and can use the exit or A-ability to leave, but no new players will be able to enter.

Once a given entry portal is removed, a new entry portal will spawn elsewhere in the world. This will increase the overall number of "fresh" dungeons in these zones, while still allowing players to run solo dungeons together and follow others into a dungeon within a reasonable time window.

Smart Cluster Queue Adjustments

Players waiting to enter a cluster via the Smart Cluster Queue now also add to the total Disarray headcount in the cluster for which they are queueing. For example:

  • Alliance X has 100 players in Cluster A
  • Alliance X also has 80 players in Cluster B, 50 of whom are waiting to enter Cluster A via the Smart Cluster Queue
  • All Alliance X players in Cluster A would receive a Disarray debuff based on 150 players (100 in cluster + 50 in queue)
  • All Alliance X players in Cluster B would receive a Disarray debuff based only on the 80 players in the cluster

Disarray Strength Adjustments

Additionally, the effects of Disarray, AKA the zerg debuff, no longer accelerate as quickly with higher player numbers. The new debuff thresholds can be seen in the chart below.

As a reminder, the following 3 attributes are affected by the debuff:

  • Bonus Damage vs. Players
  • CC Duration vs. Players
  • Received Healing
