Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning News - Mythic Nixes Mixed Realm Servers, Announces Appearance Items

Posted by Michael Bitton on Jun 07, 2010  | 33 comments in our forums

WAR Producer Carrie Gouskos recently penned the Producer's Letter for the month of May, which contained a number of revelations for the upcoming 1.3.6 update.

Carrie had previously mentioned that players would be able to create characters on both realms on a single server in 1.3.6, however, it turns out Mythic is nixing this plan as a result of "mixed" community feedback on the matter.

In previous months, Mythic also released sets of screenshots teasing an upcoming armor overhaul for Warhammer Online, which would introduce much higher resolution armor to the game and provide additional variety to players. As Carrie told us in an interview on 1.3.5, community feedback was also mixed on this, as many players are attached to their particular look, and didn't want to see that change with the new armor sets. Mythic has found the solution to making both sides of the issue happy: appearance items! In 1.3.6 players will be able to select the armor they wear for stats and the armor they wear for appearance. Wearing Invader gear but prefer the Sentinel look? No problem!

View the full Producer's Letter here.

Pretty exciting news for WAR players. What do you think of Mythic's solution to the armor issue? Let us know in the comments below!
