“With pet collecting, pet skills and the new Relic system, we’ve rounded out major parts of the character strategic systems. With the Goblin Frontier’s quest revamp, we’ve aligned that frontier around a story. The new character create and select experience is filled with flavor, quality and lore. Some new monsters have crept into the world, and the variety is feeling better. On top of all this, we’ve got a ton of small changes; including our first versions of friends, our test store, and skill point resets. It’s a big step forward from Update 6.”
