Issue 12 – “To the Dark Tower Below” is slowly creeping closer to release. Details about the content as well as the changes in the affiliated patch was revealed in a recent Developer Stream, which you can watch on YouTube.
PS! Some of the technical details below are subject to change, but we want to give you insight into what TSW will look like when Issue 12 hits the live servers, so you can prepare.

Everyone will be able to enjoy the following updates free of charge:
There’s a lot to look forward to! We’ll keep you updated and in the meantime you should make sure you spend your tokens so that you minimise your loss when the update goes live.
The long (just a bit) awaited update for FiveAlive 2 is out! This is one of those must-have mods that will significantly improve the Quality of Life standards, especially for healers!
Download the mod from the FiveAlive 2 thread on the TSW forums.
To customise the Team GUI ingame, enter TSW’s GUI edit mode using the lockpad in the upper right corner of the screen. You can then hold the CTRL button and use the mouse scroller to resize the windows. Right click inside any of the team windows while in GUI edit mode to open the configuration panel.
For the first time ever we are introducing Customizable Sprints and Vehicles to the game!
Our very first vehicle is the Franken Chopper, and you can get it in the Item Store. After doing a new mission for Moose in Kingsmouth you get it as your very own motorcycle! It can be used in any Adventure Zone, hub or Agartha, but not indoors and in dungeons. The motorbike is as functional as sprinting and its cruising speed is equivalent to Sprinting VI (150%). In addition it gives you the special Nitro Boost, which greatly increases speed for a short time.
We are also introducing two all new Sprints to the Item Store and one new as an Achievement. Fleet of Flame gives a new effect and lets you run through the world in a blazing trail of fire, while the Athlete sprinting style offers a fresh animation and lets you really show off your running muscles!

The TSW PvP events team is hosting an event for people new to PvP in TSW.
“This event is organized to introduce players to the PvP part of this amazing game with the help of experienced and friendly PvP community veterans.
As the name suggests, this event is for those looking to begin PvPing in TSW and those who are simply curious about the PvP aspect of the game and would like to learn more. You have no prior or very little/limited experience? Not a problem – this event is aimed at helping you start off in PvP and for you to get to know the PvP community.
We will host another PvP event aimed at more advanced PvP players at a later stage (will be advertised in advance), so those of you with more experience in PvP will get your chance to talk more advanced builds and tactics with your fellow PvPers then.”
