    A more detailed translation of the Korean patch notes (that this update is based on) was also released here. A briefer summary is on reddit here

    Significant changes include:
    • New tier for Hiram equipment - 'Glorious' (T4) Mythic or higher grade can be awakened to 'Exalted' (T5)*, retaining the current grade, gems, etc (note: currently, Brilliant Awakening scrolls cannot be converted to 'Exalted' Awakening scrolls)
    • New tier for Erenor equipment - 'Radiant' (T2) Mythic or higher grade can be awakened to ''Brilliant" (T3)*, as above
    • Two new weapon attributes (see below)
    • New 'specialisation' system for enhancing these attributes on weapons and armour (see below)
    • New ancestral skills; 'balancing' of some combat skills; +2 increase in skill point cap
    • New alchemy and cooking recipes craftable within the Garden
    • Change to Ayanad and Erenor cloak awakening
    • Repeatable quests in Diamond Shores, Sungold, Exeloch, Reedwind, and West Hiram Mountains will change from a daily to a weekly cycle, with increased kill numbers. Completing each quest will yield 50 scrolls or 30 infusions of the relevant grade.
    *translated as Sublime and Liberated (respectively) in the Korean patch notes

    In the run-up to the launch:

    [CURRENT]
    • Between June 4th and June 11, the first character to remain logged in continuously for 30 minutes each day will receive a Gatekeeper's Bundle via in-game mail. This contains loot drop and experience buffs plus a token which can be turned in for a special title after collecting 6 of them. More info: https://www.trionworlds.com/archeage/en/2020/06/04/the-gardens-blessing-event-has-begun/ (The Garden’s Blessing Event has Begun!) Cautions:
      • Only one character on each account can receive a Gatekeeper's Bundle per day. All items are non tradeable - make sure the character you want to receive it logs in first!
      • The buffs must be used within 24h of opening a Gatekeeper’s Bundle. Additionally, the Gatekeeper’s Bundle will disappear when the event ends on June 11th.
    [COMPLETED]
    • Players can claim a Brown Shiba Inu pet (one per account) through the in-game marketplace, after the marketplace update on May 14th 2020. This is similar to the corgi pet but cannot be placed in a house - he has no combat skills, just follows you, looking cute :-D
