New expansion announced for Jade Dynasty
Jade Dynasty has announced a new expansion, called Legacy, coming soon for its players.
The expansion will deal with the new area of Incense Valley, introducing two new classes (Mages and Forta). A new instance, the Crimson Peaks Voidland, will be available for 10-25 players, making it the largest yet. New seasonal events, new exchange items, new Jade types, and new Treasure Boxes will also add to the new content list.
Meanwhile, a major rebalancing will go through gear (including stronger Ethereal and Celestial gear) and combat (including faction skills). Character creation will also be boosted to offer new examples of each faction, new starting fashion gear, and the ability to preview high-level armor sets on the character.
Jade Dynasty is published by Perfect World Entertainment, which also publishes Forsaken World and War of the Immortals.
