    - fixed donation crafts

    [v91]

    - fixed lack of soulforce on donation gear (Belt now gives +4000 soulforce)
    - barbarians can no longer use fists & Claws

    [v90]
    - added workaround for Donation Armor Decomposing

    [v88/v89]
    Hello, folks old and folks new!

    The current update will be covering new weapon fashion, as some of you might have requested earlier. In total, there have been 37 new weapon fashion skins added for both male and females. These will contain the 'new' 1.5.1 weapons as skin, the G15 dark red weapons, R9 weapons, some weapons that PW has never used before and some other iconic weapons for you to use!

    Aside from the free weapon skins, there will be new custom weapons available from the attendant NPC. They cost as much as the custom Black Lunate does, so work your bums off in automatic events! They are as followed:

    Dragon's bane - Psychic orb
    Grief and Sorrow - Assassin daggers
    Behemoth - Archer bow
    Devastator - One handed short weapon
    Death - Scythe, one handed long weapon

    They are all displayed in the Update image

    Other stuff
    [Rank 9]
    - fixed a crafting bug wich made certain 3rd cast armors uncraftable
    - Moved 3rd cast recrafting to the Rising Dawn Forge

    [Interface]
    - Want to browse the forum ingame? now you can
    - added a ingame forum browser
    # for a detailed description on how to use it, read: Browser Instructions

    [Donation Armors]
    - Donation Crystals have been renamed to DC Exchange Ticket
    - added a option to the Eldest Matchmaker to create DC with the Exchange Tickets
    - Added a new Donation Crystal, this one is account bound.
    - You can now decompose Donation Armors back to DC

    What does this mean? simple
    once you donate, you will recieve a DC Exchange Ticket. this one may be sold, thrashed,traded or whatever you want to do with it.
    OR, you can use it to make a actual Donation Crystal. however from here on out they will be account bound. this means once you make them, there is no going back. its bound to that account.
    It allows you to make Devastation Armors on that account, or decompose those armors back to DC. So if you have more then 1 character you can use swap donation armors across those chars.
    But, as said above. you can no longer trade these new DC's.

    Since the 1.5.1 update we've been getting the same support tickets and bug reports from people about client problems that are easily solved.
    If you're feeling stuck or lost about why your clients not working, or why your meridian flame and flight particle effects are not showing up, read on for solutions!

    Problem: "I get an error when I start my client, it says something like 'models/players/????/????.ecm' and then crashes."

    Solution: Your models.pck contains bad header checksums and is unable to read past a certain point. You should run ModelsFixer.exe (found in the 'element' folder) and see if this program is able to rebuild and sort out your models.pck. If the program runs out of memory or crashes, chances are your PC is not powerful enough to fix the problem due to the 2.5GB size of models.pck, and you will have to download our new client installer with the problem already fixed.


    Problem: "I can't see any of the particle effects on my flight and/or my meridian is stuck and won't progress to the 'flame' meridian". This doesn't happen if you used the new client installer.

    Solution: Your gfx.pck contains bad header checksums and is unable to read past a certain point. You should run GFXFixer.exe (found in the 'element' folder) and this program will rebuild and sort out your gfx.pck.


    Problem: "It says in the changelog that is fixed, but its not fixed on my client"

    Solution: You need to run your auto-patcher (patcher/patcher.exe) or download the manual patch for the new update, silly.

    If none of this helps, you can always contact support.pwdevastation.com and we can help you out on a 1 to 1 basis.

    Ready for a brand new ground breaking event of its kind?

    Starting next week on Monday the 9th of June, DevastationPW will be having a week of pure Daily TW madness.

    During the first 11 hours of each day bidding will be open from 1am till 12 noon.
    From 2pm till 5pm will be the first set of battles.
    From 8pm till 11pm will be the second set of battles.
    (all times are GMT+1 - British Summer Time)

    What does this mean? Well with only two battle time-slots it means that bigger guilds will be easier to take down and the TW map will never look the same. The event will be running until the end of the week (Sunday the 15th), meaning that an interesting weekend of TW PvP is due for all taking part!

    Remember owning a level 2 or higher territory will also earn you a guild logo! There will also be an award at the end of the week for the best new underdog guild (everybody loves cheering for the underdogs).

    An event like this has never been done before, but has long been pondered. The development team will be hosting this event and controlling everything manually after discovering a way to do this thanks to some leaked official documents. Whilst some servers have searched ways to do this using hard server restarts, there will be no restart required at any point for this event.

    Server Update complete!
    Run your auto-patcher or use the manual patch.


    Following the results of the community poll, and from information gained by speaking to players in-game, we have decided to increase the rates of the primal world by 10x and place all A card war avatars in the item mall with some edits.

    Changelog:
    Placed War Avatar Chest A in item mall.
    Increased chance of S cards from War Avatar pack S.
    Edited a few unbalanced War Avatars.
    Removed the ability to level-up/awaken war avatars (due to insane stattage and since you get them free now everybody would have to open packs for 2 hours to get some level 100 awakened card set, which isn't very fun).
    Made all War Avatars Tradeable.

    Decreased blood requirements of new skills by 10x.
    Increased daily amount of Arcane Sky Pills from 10 to 50.
    Placed passive 'Codex' skills into the item mall and reduced their effectiveness.

    Removed Spirit of Defense pill.
    Removed spirit of Assault pill.
