The upcoming Helliquary Gauntlet

Players landing a top 10 spot on the leaderboard for their server at the end of the week would be given a Voindwound Gauntlet Champion Avatar frame, usable through the Helliquary Gauntlet Season. If they maintain the top 10 spots at the seasons end, they will keep the Avatar Frame for good.

Helliquary Raids have been updated, incurring an increased cooldown on resurrection during a raid, and Helliquary bosses emitting a pulse on being enraged that scales in damage after each use. 

They also mentioned in the blog that based on the feedback around one tower bonus, they have adjusted both the said tower and improved Cursed Shards gathering to balance Accused Towers better.

The Battleground queue cancellation penalty that was introduced in the previous content update has been iterated upon. The new penalty increases upon each offense with a max of 20 min penalty beyond which they won’t be able to queue.

In this, players don’t have access to the usual inventory but are given pre-selected skills for the class. This involves defeating the fiercest minions in a 15-floor gauntlet.

Shady Stock is another of the limited-time events where the players must run Daily Tasks for Yakin, such as clearing specific dungeons, identifying gear, and purchasing items from his standard inventory.

The third and last of the limited-time events is called the Scorched Sea. Completing three tasks gives one random Legendary Item, 5 gives three rare Crests, eight gives 1 Telluric Pearl, and on completing ten tasks, they get 1 Legendary Crest.

With the host of new changes coming to the game, the developers only provided a list of fixes that are updated on Tuesdays, but no new changes have been made in the upcoming update.
