Patch Notes - Version 1.34.04.17
2011-01-21

Notice: We can’t stress this enough. When the launcher is running the patch installer, let it run
its course. It will take some time to apply the patch and it might seem like the installer is doing
nothing, but it is working. If you reboot or kill the patcher process you run the risk of corrupting
you installation, forcing you to do a full reinstall.

Notice of DirectX update:
Make sure you are running the latest version DirectX to avoid issues.

The patch is planned to go live early next week.
This patch is a mix of new content and some important fixes and system optimization.
