A new dev diary published on the official WAR website featuring Warhammer Online item designer Sean Bosshardt gives us a preview of the upcoming scenario rewards system, which includes new RvR weapons. The new scenario rewards will make their debut with the release of version 1.3.4, which is currently on the PTS.
We previously reported on the fact that version 1.3.4 of Warhammer Online had hit the public test servers, bringing with it an entirely revised scenario structure. That scenario structure has been revised, yet again, due in part to negative player feedback. WAR Community Coordinator Andy Belford outlines the re-revised scenario list in an In Development post on the official WAR forums.

Two formerly hugely popular servers will soon be added to the list of merged servers, as free transfers will be offered for both the Phoenix Throne and Dark Crag servers beginning December 2nd.
