    Great Patch

    I am a casual PVE player that only goes in the DZ for the weekly. Otherwise I stay away from that place; I have to say that this latest patch is a breath of fresh air to those of us that don't get into the PVP aspect of the game.

    Just wanted to say great job on this update; it has been long overdue!
