We are excited for the first TC1 release of the Time of Legends! This is only part one of what you can expect to see in Pub 90 and can expect to see part two in the next week. Make sure you patch your client before testing anything on TC1. We look forward to seeing you on TC1, if you have any feedback please send it to uo@broadsword.com.
