Early Enrollment v2 was introduced this morning Thursday 22 January. You will need to run the Patcher to update to the current version of the game in order to play.
Escalations, How Do They Work?
The River Kingdoms are home to a variety of monsters and predators, most having few plans beyond their next victim/meal. However, larger threats regularly pop up in the Monster Hexes, filling them with their own forces and expanding to neighboring hexes unless players work together to take them down. These are called Escalations, and when left alone they tend to grow in strength and size, spawning more and more creatures, as well as more powerful ones, to fill the growing number of hexes they control.
Your Friend the Token
Tokens are frequent loot drops from creatures in Pathfinder Online. They represent fleeting moments of triumph that can give you a small advantage in your battles. You equip them by dragging them from Inventory to the Wond[rous] slot on the Paperdoll. Once slotted, using them in combat (by pressing 9 or 0) gives you a buff. They’re very fast to activate and don’t cost Stamina or Power. You can put up to 9 of the same Tokens into the Wond[rous] slot. They’re a good way to try out the buff system, and get a virtually free boost in a challenging combat. They're also a great way to experiment with various effects that are often associated with Feats so you can learn how to use them and decide if you like them before you spend XP on a Feat.
It has been an amazing two weeks since the start of Early Enrollment and we have been watching with amazement as the politics and economics of the game have begun to develop at incredible speed. We can't capture everything that is happening since much of the action is taking place on private forums and channels. We are able to see a lot of activity and we thought we'd highlight some of the developments for a larger audience.

Now that we have established our plan for regular every-other-week updates, we want to discuss our plan for the first quarter of 2015.Tomorrow, the EE2 build will go live on the Test Server and notes about EE2 will be posted to the goblinworks.com forum. A week later, EE2 will be pushed to the Live Server and we'll post a release notes blog about it.As a preview, we can tell you that player husk looting is the marquee feature of EE2. You will be at risk of losing inventory when your characters die, and other characters will be able to loot some of your inventory if they can get to your husk before you do!This is a pretty big feature. It may not be typical of every release. Some weeks the update may be mostly bug fixes or even client/server improvements that players won't be able to see directly. Of course, we will have plenty of new feature releases as well!
