We're excited to announce the first stage of our massive multi-tier content release: Exotic Armaments. This first stage will give players the ability to research and discover up to 125 new pieces of equipment, completely changing the face of warfare across Illyriad. This new equipment will make use of all recently unused crafting materials, so get out there and get to hunting and trading!
You'll notice powerful enchanted equipment with strange new components; this will stem from a new school of magic that hasn't been released yet, but will be unleashed upon Elgea and the Broken lands very shortly. However, nearly 60% of researchable equipment will be craftable immediately as they don't require the soon-to-be-released reagents.
We look forward to sharing more of what is to come in the coming days, but for now, enjoy and craft away!
We've compiled the full release notes into a handy PDF document here.
