today we had our scheduled systems maintenance and a lot of behind-the-scenes systems have been upgraded. The most important update is the database engine being moved from an old cluster to a new one and upgraded at the same time. Backup mechanisms have been fine-tuned and a new notification/alert mechanism for system failures (e.g. unable to play on the server) has been added to the current ones.
The most impactful thing for players is that you should see slightly better performance with equip/unequip items, soulshots/spiritshots etc.
Have fun & see you ingame
