Rothé Valley Epic Adventure & Battle Pass
Rothé Valley has been un-vaulted! As an Epic Adventure, the zone has received some visual updates, quest clean ups, new Heroic Encounters, and a new stu-panda-ous Battle Pass.
The Dragonflight Stronghold encounter returns to challenge guilds once again! Dragons have been updated to reflect the dragon models found in Dragon Hunts, 4 new daily missions have been added along with new rewards. This event no longer requires the Golden Bell to activate; Guild Marks are now used instead.

Recently, some characters who logged in for the first time since the release of Undermountain in 2019 incorrectly retained certain feats or other class features that had been removed. With this release, these "legacy characters" will no longer have those feats or class features when logging in, leveling the playing field with other characters who were not affected by this issue.
Upon login and switching to affected loadouts, affected characters will see an error message that states "Your powers, feats, boons, and ability scores have been reset." However, these characters should still retain their selected abilities scores, powers, and existing feats. Players will not have to reselect them or fix alternate loadouts.
