Visit Lovely Gendarran Fields
Another high level zone, for level 25-35
Unlock the Mysteries of the Mystic Forge
Swap shop! Run by Zommoros the Genie!
Expanded World vs. World
Imagine quite a few people will be excited about this, a new underground battle zone, with tricks and traps and a Dark Room.
Also, the upper world is adding more Skill Challenges, Dynamic Events and Jumping Puzzles
PVP Automated Tournaments
Eight teams of 5 players fight it off to claim big rewards
Rewards in PVP are split into bought-by-glory and earned-by-Rank
It looks better when you Slashy, Slashy, Stab, Stab
Improved Overflow Severs
UI and features to allow people easily to group up when in Overflow Severs
Say Hello to chat bubbles! Wooo!
New Key-Binding Feature

That huge, daunting list of Utility skills has been streamlined
