This update features an all-new, lore-focused Tall Tale mission for players looking to play their part in a thrilling story. Join Captain Pendragon to uncover the mystery of the feared ship, the Ashen Dragon, and reveal the secrets of a sinister new threat.

However, what's even more exciting is that firebombs are being added to the game. This should make combat even more deadly because they sound like a lot of fun.
