Beyond the Veil Patch 1 - Ver. 21.010.1

Roads of Avalon Changes

  • Direct connections between Hideout zones redirected to raid zones
    • Increases likelihood of raid zones having two separate connections at once
  • In non-Hideout Roads zones:
    • Randomized Dungeon Maps no longer usable
    • Static Randomized Dungeons no longer appear in enchanted form
    • Increased Static Randomized Dungeon rewards
  • Resource mobs (Elemental, Dryad, Cougar, Wood Spirit) in Roads now spawn with full charges
  • Updated behavior of Avalonian mobs in Roads:
    • Decreased knockback of Avalonian Monk and damage of the standard version
    • Added immediate spell cast to Monk, Warrior, Mage
    • Decreased Warrior attack power
  • Roads of Avalon group portals returned to their 7 charge maximums
  • Unstable Roads portal in Brecilien party slots increased to 7 to match the group portals
  • Zerg bubble threshold in non-raid Roads zones increased from 6 to 8
  • As a followup to the extension of Roads Hideout Grace Periods last week, the spawn rate of Hideout Power Cores in the Roads has been increased by 70%. This is to address the number of Power Cores that currently decay due to not being connected to a Hideout zone.

Mists Changes

  • Tier 5 Mythical mobs now only spawn in lethal Mists, while Tier 4 Mythical mobs still exclusively spawn in nonlethal Mists.
  • Tier 5 Mythical mobs have had their loot tables decreased, but their spawn frequencies increased to offset this decrease. The goal of this change is to make these T5 mobs as common as possible while still guaranteeing they drop at least one artifact.
  • Further adjusted all mythical mobs to spawn +50% more frequently to account for "missed" mythical mobs that are spawned but never killed
  • The Long Hostile Dismount Cooldown in the Mists has been increased from 10s to 12s

      • Spring Cottontail: 2s → 3s
    • Battle Mounts now take 10s:
      • Siege Ballista: 15s → 10s
      • Venom Basilisk: 15s → 10s
      • Flame Basilisk: 15s → 10s
      • Elder's Command Mammoth: 25s → 10s
  • Increased Item Power of Avalonian Basilisk to 1000 to match T7 mounts:
    • HP Increase: 1239 → 1254
    • HP Regen Increase: 12.39 → 12.54

Other Changes

  • Season 16 furniture items placeable
  • Improved visibility of enchantment effects for .4 weapons
  • Added unrestricted PvP zones to mob camps in the Mists
  • The lingering effect of the Invisibility Shrine buff after reveal no longer provides invincibility
