A New Moon Rises over Azeroth!

Once a year, the druids of Moonglade open their doors to all in celebration of their city's great triumph over an ancient evil, Omen. During the days of the fest, Omen begins to stir again, giving peoples of all races and levels of experience a chance to participate in the battle themselves. Celebrants can also join in the fun by honoring their elders, remembering their wisdom, feasting, and shooting off fireworks! Learn more about this festival at our new Lunar Festival page.

Neocron Patch 152 Released!

Reakktor have today released the Neocron Christmas Patch (152) bringing with it several new features along with bugfixes.

Most prominent in the patch notes are the introduction of new Sympathy missions which can be run to raise a character's sympathy with specific factions, these missions being obtainable from Tech Haven rather than the respective faction's HQ.

A fix for the problem of reloading has also been introduced (however it is stated that further adjustments to this issue are being worked on), along with the promise of a new weather effect, possibly the snow that people have been asking for for so long.

Full patch notes and discussion can be found here: Neocron Patch 152 Release Thread.
