I apologize for my lack of blogging lately. Real life has been keeping me exceptionally busy, and I genuinely am very sorry for not engaging the community as I should be. It’s an honour and a privilege to be able to address such a dedicated community of fantastic gamers. Hopefully you’ve been enjoying extra Tilly!
Work on IPY 2.5 is continuing, though we hesitate to release a full feature list for fear that we wouldn’t be able to complete the whole thing on time. We hope that’s fair.
I’m not going to hype you. It’s a lot of work, and it’ll take a while to get it all together and running properly.
Luckily, we intend on releasing a pre-patch leading up to IPY 2.5. This will be done soon, and we CAN discuss what will happen in that patch!
The pre-patch IS part of IPY 2.5. It’s all things that were slated to be released for 2.5, so in that sense, the patch will be coming in two parts. One small, one large.
So what are we talking about?
Well, that’s something we’ve considered carefully. We think that people have been waiting for RoT to be removed for a long, long time now, and with news that it COULD (or even would) be, a lot of people are holding off on joining or even ceasing their macroing waiting for the change.
We’re also hearing a lot of requests for PvE content.
So for the IPY 2.5 pre-patch, we’re adding:
- Rested Skill System
- Tilly’s Minions
- Ultra Slayers
We’ll get in to each of those things in detail over the weekend on this blog and on Facebook!
