After the first maintenance last Tuesday, tomorrow’s maintenance on Thursday, July 14th will take care of one long awaited change regarding PvP fights in the Dark Zone and will add additional kill volumes to the newest Incursion Dragon’s Nest.

As usual, the servers will shut down at 09:00 AM CEST / 03:00 AM EDT / 00:00 AM PDT. Estimated downtime is approximately 3 hours. Follow the official post for more information about the maintenance status.

This patch finally reduces the time to kill other players by increasing the weapon damage output against them by around 20%. Note that damage against NPCs and skill damage won’t be affected by this change. This is actually a nice improvement (at least in our opinion) and could make encounters in the DZ more interesting and moreover not so lengthy.

You can find the full changelog down below.


  • Modified PvP weapon damage modifier so players will deal about 20% more weapon damage to each other (note that this change does not impact skill damage)
  • Added more kill volumes to Dragon’s Nest map. When exiting the map area, characters will be automatically killed
