Patch Notes: Episode 1 - July 23rd, 2019 New Main Mission: Manning National Zoo Emeline Shaw, the leader of the Outcasts, has fallen back from her defeat on Roosevelt Island and barricaded herself deep in the Manning National Zoo. To get to her, you will need to fight through the blockades and the Outcasts who protect her to put an end to her violence. New Main Mission: Camp White Oak The Black Tusks and their leader have set up a strategic position close to an estate nestled deep in the woodlands, and your assignment is to take them down and capture him in the new Camp White Oak mission.

For world drop exotics it requires that the player has the drop previously For crafted exotics, it requires that the player has the blueprint Eagle Bearer remains exclusive to the Operation Dark Hours Raid The purpose of dropping these is to allow a chance to get GS 500 variants without upgrading, or get materials to upgrade other exotics These exotics can be team shared to other players. Exotic items no longer have a random range on their damage/armor roll. All exotics are set to the previous highest possible value. This also affects existing exotic items.

Max stack is 5. Increased the base damage of Shotguns in PvE. Weapon Mods Added Flashlight attachments for pistols Skills Developer Comments: We took a hard look at the current meta. The builds that are fun, effective and popular. We knew that skill builds, while it being something people wantto play with, was nowhere near competitive. We knew there was an explosives damage build that was on the fringe of popularity, but none that actually relied on really good skill mods driven by skill power. We analyzed the best damage builds and survivability builds out there and looked at their efficiency - how fast they kill, how fast they can clear content, how fast they can take down enemies - and mapped that to our skills. How much more power do skills need to get from 3K skill power (our current maximum requirement on skill power mods) to compensate for all the damage bonuses the player is "giving up" on gear to reach that skill power? Then we looked at each skill and what it should be good at (burst, sustain, single target damage, survivability etc) and went to work tuning the mods to make a skill build approach the efficiency of a "red" damage build or a "blue" tank build. To that effect, here are the current changes to skill mods power levels, and in some cases base numbers, on skills. Skill Haste Cooldown Reduction has been replaced with skill haste. Skill haste works equivalent to speed. So 100% skill haste reduces cooldown by 50%, like a car speeding up by 100% getting to it's destination in half the time. This means that the player can invest in more than 100% Haste and still get something back. It also means there's a diminishing return to Skill Haste, as opposed to cooldown reduction where each point was actually worth more than the last one. This allows us to have a good amount of Skill Haste possible from gear, but even larger amounts granted by high skill power Skill Mods, granting skill builds more frequent access to their souped up skills. To that effect, these are the changes to Haste (formerly Cooldown Reduction) Removed the 90% Cooldown Reduction hard cap Lowered the minimum Cooldown cap for all skills from 10 seconds to 3, except for the Chem Launcher which is now 8 Renamed all instances of Cooldown Reduction on existing gear to Skill Haste, with a 50% increase to their base values Eg: +10% Cooldown Reduction will become +15% Skill Haste Increased Surge talent Skill Haste bonus from +10% to +20% Increased Alps Summit Armament 1-piece Skill Haste bonus from +10% to +20% Increased China Light Industries Corporation 3-piece Skill Haste bonus from +10% to +30% Increased Petrov Defense Group 3-piece Skill Haste bonus from +10% to +30% Increased Tip of the Spear 3-piece Skill Haste bonus from +20% to +40% Specialization Skill Mods (granted from each spec tree) Removed all Skill Power requirements Bonuses greatly improved to provide a strong initial boost to the skill platform Demolitionist Cyclone Magazine -

Players already in WT5 will automatic get it as they log in, The upgrade requires 1 weapon and 1 gear piece of Gear Score 490+, and some of each Specialized (blue) material Crafted items can be used in recalibration, both as materials and to be improved Deconstructing High-End gear now guarantees a brand material (increased from 50% drop chance).

Players can get all these blueprints from all three sources. Once the pools has been exhausted, none of the sources will give more blueprints.
