On Friday, Citadel Studios hosted a Legends of Aria dev stream on Twitch highlighting the upcoming Point Release 9 and all the changes it will make. Among the various changes coming in the update, the ones given the most attention are those related to militias, specifically updates to the game's capture-the-flag mechanics. The new mechanics include the addition of a material named Spritiwood which is tied to the Spiritwood King of the Hill location. The resource is useful for repairs as well as summoning battering rams.
As for other changes to the militia system, the development team is adjusting ranks to improve balance. The update will also add a duel system that allows for 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 fights in the game's arenas.
If you missed out on the dev stream and would like to watch it in its entirety, there's obviously more in the hour-long stream than what we've addressed here, you can do so below.
