    • Stone altars, benches, brazier pillars, coffins, fireplaces, forges, all fountains, graves, kilns, ovens, smelters, spirit castles and cottages, and wells are now  able to be crafted from different materials for a whole new look.
    • Materials include Stone, Marble, Pottery Brick, Rendered, Rounded, Sandstone and Slate

Skillgain Event Extension

Some of you may have noticed we had a bug that caused the skillgain event to end before it was meant to, and we’re making it up to you with an extension of the event until Sunday at midnight server time. You can hover over the icons in your effects window to easily see the duration of the event. Though skill gain and affinity chance has been extended, the Halloween event still ends midnight server time on Friday, November 5th.
