Bullroarer Update 23 Preview Release Notes
Update 23 Bullroarer Release Notes
Here are the Release Notes for Update 23 on Bullroarer. These notes are a work of progress, and will change over time. There are various parts of Update 23 that are not yet in the Bullroarer Release Notes due to not being in this preview, and some numbers, names, and other particulars may well change before going live. The Bullroarer database has been wiped, so you may re-copy your live characters.
Of Special Note:
Update 23 - Grey Mountains (Final name TBA)
Update 23 features a journey into the homelands and histories of the dwarves, including the Longbeard descendants of Durin the Deathless. Beginning with an expanded Erebor, you will adventure into the fabled Iron Hills, and finally arrive in the lost dwarf kingdoms of the Grey Mountains. This new adventure area features more than 100 quests and deeds, and three resource Instances that allows for groups of three, with daily and weekly rewards. Additionally, there are two new Instances for up to three players, and one new Instance for up to six players, with Solo versions available as well! Additionally, a new raid will be available in a future update to Update 23. These new Instances will soon playable up to Tier 3, and are available this Bullroarer preview at Tier 1. Tier 3 is a new challenge level that replaces the former T2C difficulty, and offers a new challenge in addition to other awards. Tier 3 difficulty is expected to unlock several weeks after the release of Update 23.
