Producer's Letter: Age of Discovery and Membership Changes

Game Update "Darkness Dawns" coming on July 30
Holly Longdale explains the upcoming changes for Age of Discovery and the Membership tiers. These changes will go live on Oct. 1, together with the Heroic Characters.

Greetings fellow adventurers!

We’ve got more exciting news to talk about today with regard to Age of Discovery expansion as well as a few changes to our membership structure that will launch on Oct. 1.  They are pretty simple, so I’ll get right to it!

1.       The Age of Discovery expansion – which was our first-ever feature expansion released in 2011 – is going to be available in the game in our Marketplace as a feature bundle as well as individual features for Station Cash (SC).

a.       The features will be broken down, like so

i.      Beastlord: 2500 SC

ii.      Mercenaries: 1500 SC

iii.      Tradeskill Apprentice: 1000 SC

iv.      Reforging: 1000 SC

v.      Dungeon Maker: 1000 SC

b.      The feature bundle (all 5 features included) will be on sale in our in-game marketplace for 4000 SC.

c.       The standard Age of Discovery expansion in its current form will no longer be available for purchase on the web site or in-game after Oct. 1.

2.       Membership changes

a.       We are thrilled to announce that we are removing the item restrictions from both Free and Silver accounts.  We felt that the restrictions weren’t in keeping with a positive experience so we removed it!  

b.      Gold Members are going to get permanent increases to Coin Loot (15% increase) and Mount Speed (10% increase) added to their membership benefits.

Also, on Oct. 1, we'll start selling an item in our marketplace that will raise your character to 280 AAs (Usable at Level 10) for 2000 SC.

Next week, we’ll start digging into the Tears of Veeshan details.  See you then!
