The battle for dominance over Erenor moves north as the Claim phase begins on Fresh Start.
Welcome to Phase 2
Your adventures on the Fresh Start servers, Nui & Ezi, have been full of PvP, mobs, and single planting carrots. Phase 2 is here and you've got newly available places explore, mobs to kill, gear to craft, and illegal farms to camp. Check out the patch notes and read on for a glimpse of Phase 2 updates.
More Places to Explore
Players have already set foot on Auroria, but only in Diamond Shores and Mistmerrow. Now they'll be able to explore and interact with Nuimari, Heedmar, Marcala, and Calmlands for hunting, gathering and questing! These lands also opens up the opportunity to plant Archeum Saplings for archeum, and farm Regrade Braziers for sun/moon/star points used to craft Regrade scrolls. (The 30g Regrade Scrolls will be removed from the Marketplace this phase)
More to Craft and Upgrade
It's time to use all those mats you've been hoarding to upgrade your Magnificent gear to Epherium tier! Or will you choose the new Hiram Guardian gear path? Hiram gear drops from the Abyssal Legion mobs scattered throughout Auroria in Diamond Shores, and the 4 newly available territories on Fresh Start. (On Legacy servers, Golden Ruins is also home to the Abyssal Legion mobs.) Each piece of gear they drop starts at Grand and comes with 3 bonus stats. It'll cost you 60 labor to identify each piece of Hiram gear. This gear uses the Synthesis system to upgrade, and is fed any other type of Hiram gear to do so. When it reaches a new grade you'll have the opportunity to reroll a stat, so choose wisely!
If you enjoy peaceful rides through Erenor on your way to make a little coin, prepare to use a little elbow grease upgrading your Farm Carts to Farm Wagons, which can carry 4 packs at a time! You'll be rolling in gold before you know it. If you want to really appreciate the beauty of Erenor, craft yourself a Glider and take to the skies! Phase 2 will also allow tier 2 Glider upgrades so you can fly faster, farther, and maneuver more effectively.
Enjoy the adventure!
