Message from Game Director Chad "Pappy" Moore:
As we announced earlier this week, new features in the Redmoon Mutiny content update are soon going live on the Public Test Realm, and we want to give more details on what’s coming so all of you can get in there and help us test them. So! Without further ado, here is a list of the new features that will be available:
- Redmoon Terror Raid, Phase 2
- Cross-faction groups, including raid groups
- Neither Adventures nor World Story instances are currently supported for cross-faction groups
- Cross-faction PvP Arena Teams
- Cross-faction Guilds
- Cross-faction Circles
- Cross-faction Neighbors
- Cross-faction Friends
- PvP Leaderboards
There are a few base rules to understand in terms of how cross-faction groups will work. Cross-faction groups are created in the same way that groups are created in the game now. You cannot be flagged for PvP if you want to be in a cross-faction group, and if you become flagged, you will be dropped from the group. This means that certain actions, such as dueling, will be restricted within them. We have tried to account for edge cases with clear messaging, but please make sure to report any irregularities that you see while testing.
All of these features are scheduled to be released on the PTR Tuesday, October 18. We encourage you to jump in and put them through their paces, and look forward to hearing your feedback!
