Warhammer patch 1.0.3 hits the live servers

Michael Zenke

If you're a Warhammer player you've probably gotten the impression that Mythic's patching cycle is on par with a hampster's exercise wheel. This is the third week in a row we've seen a major update to the game, this time in the form of Game Update 1.0.3. It still seems like Mythic is adding in some basic features to enhance the game's robustness. Highlights from the third featured patch include:
  • A regional chat system, apparently a much-requested piece of the MMO puzzle. The /1 channel now corresponds to a general region chat channel, where 'regions' are basically zone pairings (Nordland and Norsca, for example). The /2 channel is an RvR chat channel that is enabled when you're in the RvR lakes or (on Open RvR servers) all the time.
  • A 'new mail icon' to alert players when mail has arrived.
  • Improvements that will make NPCs less chatty.
  • All you have to do to report a goldseller is now type /rg after you get a goldseller /tell. It fills out a report on the last player to msg you, so be sure to act quickly!
The full patch notes are available at the Warhammer Herald site. For additional commentary on some of the blindingly obvious fixes here, check out Wizards and Wenches' take on the patch.
