Additional PvP Levels, PvP Tokens and New Tier two PvP Gear
PvP was never so rewarding and challenging before! Update 1.07 introduces PvP levels 6 to 10 together with fantastic new Tier two PvP Gear for all classes. But before the gods of Hyboria put rewards, they put bloody and deadly combat! To get access to the new gear players will have to have reached the appropriate PvP level and in addition have gathered enough brand new PvP Tokens (similar to Raid Tokens for Raid gear). There are different types of PvP Tokens. One type is obtained from performing a Sacrifice of Bori while another type is obtained through mini-games and is rewarded upon the completion of wanted-poster style quests to win at the various mini-games. Are you up to the challenge?!

Meet and battle mysterious spies, assassins and other shady characters from the far east to get great new rewards.

New Regional Fast Travel System
In addition to the existing wagoner NPCs which let you travel between major playfields and hubs, there are now also brand new wagoners that offer easy travel within certain regions for a small fee.

When used, these will transport you directly to the central hub of the current playfield.
