With a revamp on the way with Release 55, Shroud of the Avatar’s East Vauban Foothills is getting promoted from a Tier 3 to a Tier 5 area and is being given greater difficulty to match. Everything in the region has gone topsy-turvy as undead have taken over a village and cultists are taking advantage of the confusion and chaos.
Perhaps a mad scientist wizard shouldn’t have intentionally transformed people into zombies to see if he could cure them? That seems like an ethically questionable move, not to mention a dumb one.
Anyway, last weekend’s Shroud of the Avatar newsletter went on to covering another zone in the works for this month’s patch, the marsh of Norgard Fens. The team is also introducing some blatantly Star Wars-themed items to the game, such as “electric swords,” Stormtrooper-looking helmets, adobe domes with burnt skeletons (Uncle Owen nooo), and, of course, blue milk. Homage!
