The sheer number of additions and changes that Awakened Legacy brings is far too large for us to even hope to exhaustively list here, but one of the biggest highlights is the addition of a brand-new zone, Lakrum, which contains the new Drakenspire Depths instance — which can be entered only by the race that occupies Lakrum Fortress — as well as nine artifact bases that players can fight to capture, allowing them to acquire Genesis Crystals that can be used to buy Enchantment Stones and equipment.
As we discussed at length on this week’s podcast, new and returning players can also now progress all the way to level 80 under a character questing and progression system that is much more simplified and guided.
If you want to check out the full patch notes — all 27 pages of them — you can do so at your leisure over at the game’s official site. You can also stay tuned for our stream on OPTV at 2 p.m. today when we dive back into the game!
