If you're anxiously awaiting Game Update #35 so that you can create an Arasai - a new race being added as part of the free update - then here's your chance to get a glimpse of just a few of the changes on the way.
The update is scheduled to go live on Wednesday, May 23rd, and includes the Arasai, the city of Neriak, and a low level adventuring zone - Darklight Woods - all as part of this update.
Not only that, but players will be happy to know that the number of available character slots are being increased in conjunction with this update; players with normal accounts are receiving one extra slot, while players with the All Access Pass are being given two new slots for creating characters, be it Arasai or another race.
There are also housing improvements, like the ability to place your items without being put in first-person view, as well as a new system for moving between houses. The introduction of moving crates makes switching houses easy; just buy your new house and all of the items that were in your old house will appear in a crate. From there, just remove them and you can place them in your newly purchased house.
On top of all that, there's also a fix coming to PvP servers. No longer will you be able to zone while involved in PvP combat; the days of using zonelines as an escape from dying are over - now it's time to put up a fight!
