THE BURNING DEPTHS PRE-PATCH UPDATE:

[New Hero Levels]
Hero Levels can be gained from level 21 - 25. These levels are considered very long-term goals, allowing veteran players the chance to slowly continue progression of their character after reaching level 20. Hero Levels operate a little differently; they are designed to have a lower overall mechanical benefit on your character compared to standard levels. This is to help Hero Levels feel a bit less "mandatory" for players to grind if they really don't want to, while still being worthwhile to those that do. A Hero Level will grant the following:
- 5 In each stat (no racial or class stats are awarded)
- 3 Perk Points
(Level 25 will award 1 feat point)

[New Class: Knight]
- See the Knight Wiki page for information on this new class

[New icon system for negative effects]
- Currently displays an icon at the top of the game window while under the following effects: Poison, Bleed, Judgement, Stuns, Corruption, Mortal Wound, Chill, Ignite
- Icons automatically load and close upon the effect timer starting/stopping
- Icons will reload if effects are still active on login

[New Dungeon: The Burning Depths]
- See the Burning Depths Wiki page for some general information about the dungeon

NOTE: This pre-patch includes a test version of The Burning Depths only. In the coming days/weeks, after some testing and refinement of the dungeon and its bosses, it will be opened to players

[Various new crafting plans/artifacts]
