Patchnotes - 2016-04-10

Postby Muggle » Sun Apr 10, 2016 12:41 am

Hey Rebirthers,

we'll patch again tomorrow, sunday 10th, at 14:00 (02:00 pm) server time, wich is CET.

You'll receive an in game prior notice before we shutdown. Estimated downtime will be 2 hours. Use the time to clear your game cache, delete your WDB folder to avoid weird issues after patching.
We'll inform you here when we are done with everything.

And here we go! Thanks for our devs for the great fixes! :thumbsup:

Good stuff, but while were on the topic of extra attack mechanics, did you guys make hand of justice proc not be delayed to the next white?
Because that is somewhat important to the interaction with other extra attacks and probably the source of the current funkiness.
Better known as Stromgar nowadays

Patching process is done and server is up again. Website may still be a bit wonky for some people. We had to change our webhost in a hurry. Now the DNS has to update for everyone. Just be patient :)

If you have troubles logging into the game server change your realmlist to: set realmlist 37.187.183.212 That will work. This should only be a temporary solution.

Any upcoming issues due to the patch report here please. Thank you!

Have fun and see you in game.

I'm not sure this is related to the patch or not, but the War Effort materials are no longer listed on the website: therebirth.net/TheWarEffort.php

This is incredible. I cannot thank the staff enough for this patch and their lightning fast response to recent server events.

Let it be known that horde players care and respect the staff just as much as anyone else, even when we can be such nerds at times.

Now I guess removing pally loot from horde loot tables is next :<3:
