Content Update 1.1.1 has been Deployed!

We deployed content update 1.1.1 today, which introduces new Vaal skill gems, rebalances Invasion bosses and makes many other improvements. Check out the patch notes here! There are a couple of new cosmetic microtransaction effects also.

Six users have killed Atziri in Ambush now! It'll be very interesting to see how many more join their ranks over the weekend.

The San Francisco fan meetup (mid afternoon, Sunday March 16, mail chris@grindinggear.com for more info) has a pretty decent list of people attending so far! Roughly 10 developers and 40 community members are likely to be there, with more joining the list every day.

In the past we've given a lot of advance notice about patches, usually starting a week out or so. Today we deployed 1.1.1 abruptly with half an hour of warning. Which approach do you prefer?

I agree, but the question is more about whether to start mentioning them a week before they're going to be ready.

I personally like knowing when/what's coming. I appreciate anticipation :)

WOW. content update 1 week after the expansion, you guys are insane!
So what was the surprise?
Life in Wraeclast would be a walk in the park compared to my real life.
I thought it was pretty cool not knowing beforehand, but then again I can see benefits with both approaches. I don't really mind either way!
