HSN: Week 6 Recap
Posted on 08/02/2015 12:03 PM CDT by GS4-WYROM

HSN

Hot Summer Nights kicked off June 21st!  Check out what we released during the SIXTH WEEK of our acclaimed release schedule!

Combat Updates

  • Ki Focus Combat Maneuver - The maneuver is now invoked to grant a 33% chance per rank of gaining an immediate tier-up on the next unarmed strike, assuming that it is successful. If the strike is successful but does not grant an immediate tier-up, the probability of earning a tier-up strike is significantly increased for all subsequent strikes at that tier.
  • Unarmed Combat RT Adjustments - The base speeds (minimum RT) of some unarmed attacks have been revised downward. Jab has been reduced from 3 to 2, grapple from 4 to 3, and kick from 5 to 4. Punch and smite remain at 3 and 4, respectively.

Premium, Platinum, and Promotions Updates

  • Alter Scroll Sale - Throughout the summer, enjoy 10% off flares, enchanting, and padding.  You can also pick up a checkbook for only 400 points, a 33% savings!
  • Premium Festival - Another year in the Monsoon Jungle for our Premium subscribers to enjoy!
  • REAL Gems - There is still a gem out there in Prime, waiting to be found!  Congratulations to everyone that found the others!
