Hotfix for Violet Proto-Drake and Master Riding
2010/10/15 at 7:52 PM
A hotfix is being deployed for players who are obtaining
Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake
What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been
, currently as it stands you do not receive
(310% flight speed) upon getting the drake. With this hotfix when you obtain the drake you will automatically learn the new Master Riding skill.
I provided an update in the lengthy thread about Master riding, so in case it gets missed I'm throwing it up in its own non-sticky thread for now.
I have a slight update to spread to the masses. We are going to be adding a hotfix for the achievement What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. This hotfix will make it so that obtaining the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake will award players Master riding.
The way in which 310% will be awarded is going to be a little quirky at first, but we plan to make it a more smooth process in a future patch. For now, you will need 280% flying in order to learn to use the Violet Proto-Drake. Once you mount the drake for the first time it will teach Master ri
