Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning had a “difficult” weekend, a post on the BioWare Social Newtwork reports, with lag spikes and zone crashes. It took Mythic’s team until Sunday to find the root cause, and severs had to be taken offline. Once Mythic has figured out who was affected by the downtime, which was unfortunately not announced in-game, it will compensate subscribers with ten days of game time and one Golden Writ, while all characters will reveive a 100% XP and RP boost for seven days; a stack of ten lesser bone wards; and a special title.

In a powerful blow for sanity, Mythic has released a patch for Warhammer Online which combines the heretofore disparate realm versus realm rewards into a single currency. A dedicated vendor has been provided so players can turn their hard-earned War Crests into useful items, namely experience and influence modifiers. More details can be found in the full patch notes.

Mythic has announced that the 10-day limited free trail for Warhammer Online is no more.
Instead, it has been replaced with an endless free trial.
The new trial gives new and returning players and opportunity to play any of the 24 character careers and transfer them over once the player decides to purchase the game. There is a progression max of level 10, though.
Still, not a bad thing overall.

Leading up to E3, there is not a megaton of news with anything, let alone MMOs. The week was basically all about screens, delving into crafting systems and character sheets, and general stuff that you can view on any online game’s website. It’s called pre-E3 malaise, and today it’s pretty thick.
However, we have dug through the mire once more to bring you something in the way of MMO news that didn’t hit the front page.
You can catch up on it all after the break.

Mythic has announced that an exclusive griffon or manticore mount can be yours if you refer six players to Warhammer Online through the recruit-a-friend program.
