That was letting you know its the first of the month (July 1 ) and hot zones maybe have changed
So this patch test notes are changed?
Here's the DB string change for it from the last test patch:
You'll earn 76% additional experience and faction, and rare enemies will be 76% more likely to appear during the Independence Holiday! In addition, members will receive a 20% Marketplace discount.^0
You'll earn 76% additional experience and faction, and rare enemies will be 76% more likely to appear!^0
They dumped a few of the marketplace discount boosts for stuff this year so far, they did include Canada Day this year so figured it would be Monday at the latest since that is Canada Day
Check your in-game calendar.
Only thing on my calendar is death death death.
Hrm. I'm seeing it on Live. That's weird. Maybe a zone or relog is necessary?
Ah yup, needed to relog.
It says "rare drop rewards" but not "rare enemies" 76% higher this year?
I guess I'll just work outside or do something constructive instead of playing. Bummer.
All XP, faction, and rare drop rewards will be increased by 76%"
Ingame says different than the post, need clarification
Yes please. This info greatly alters whether I make plans or not this weekend.
How does this possibly impact your plans?
Increased rare spawns, I stay home and work on hunter this holiday. No increased rare spawns, I do not. That bonus doesn't happen often, so I will take full advantage.
I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be Rare Spawns. I've never seen a bonus "Rare Drops" and I don't think they could easily code that.
Rares are more likely to spawn. I can see how the article could be confusing, so will look into whether it's possible to reword that line. Thanks!
Very bummed out there is no % off Market items this year. Was really looking forward to a sale also like the other years, and the parsed info above gave me hope for one but alas, no luck.
Thank you for the week long bonus. <3
