  • PvP Updates – PvP Series 2 and Crystalline Conflict Season 3 will begin with the release of Patch 6.2. Hidden Gorge will also resume, along with adjustments to PvP actions and the Crystalline Conflict ranked matching system.

    • The Thornmarch trial will be revamped.

Dungeons will feature branching routes, which change depending on player action within the dungeon.
