We got a nice surprise last night as 1.2GB of goodies got added to the Public Test Shard (PTS). Let's dive in and see what's new
So far i came across another Tier 3 raid added, we already have Greenscale and Akylios, this time it's the Dragon of Avarice herself, Laethys.
Like the other two raids, this is set back in time when Laethys was at her full power and we get a 'Messenger of Fate' trying to change history by stopping the original five heroes from 'binding' Laethys, this is set inside her original 'home', Chalmers Caldera.
If you're a PvP'er. good news is that a new Warfront, set inside the maze area of Greenscales Blight has been added
Called 'Blighted Antechamber' this Warfront promises Capture the Flag (CTF) type match, jump pads, mazes, a good chance will be to test it tonight when Conquest: Steppes of Infinity is been tested ar 11pm GMT
As the Dev posted, this is a very rough map right now, just to give us an idea of it

Hey folks, posting this to give you info on the new Warfront you may have seen on PTS.
First of all let me state that this is the roughest draft of any content you will ever see! It is a little ahead of schedule and I figured that it'd be better for people to see it early and give me feedback before I get a ton of work into it.
It is in the front room of Greenscale's Blight (the maze room). It will be a 15 v 15 mixed mode Warfront. Right now only the control point portion is functional, but there will also be a flag for each team that can be captured for points.
There are a few jump pads to the center control point, and jump pads from the spawn points still to be implemented, as well as adjustments to the hedges to bring them up to speed.
It's not fully functional yet but enough of the rough idea is in to let folks take a look and give me any feedback you may have. Hope you enjoy it, and please leave questions, comments, concerns below.
Also added to the new quest 'hub' in Moonshade Highlands, as posted here >> http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...urn-of-Akylios are a few daily quests which auto-mentor you to level 15
Finally, before heading to bed, a new Zone event started in Moonshade so looks like a few new events and types of Rifts are incoming again, hopefully more people will discover where the rest of the 1.2GB has gone to
