Holly "Windstalker" Longdale details the xpack launch date shift and more.
Holly "Windstalker" Longdale released a new Producer's Letter today. In it we discover that the next expansion, Tears of Veeshan, has moved to a mid-November launch date and that its beta is expected to start on October 15th. She mentioned how the team is continuing to work on Heroic Characters (insta-85 chars; details on these is still very limited).
In the letter, Holly also announced that Free and Silver players will be given the Destiny of Velious zones for free (no ETA stated), while Age of Discovery and (presumably) Chains of Eternity remain pay-to-unlock content. The Age of Discovery features will be sold individual, which includes the Beastlord class, Mercenaries, Tradeskill Apprentices, Dungeon Maker, and Reforging. No prices are available at this time for the AoD features.
