The 4.9 Patch Notes further reveal the implementation of the Cursed Argent Manor solo instance that can provide players with some nifty loot. The Cursed Argent Manor instance can be accessed 7 times a week, or three times in case you do not have a Gold Pack.

Patch 4.9 also effects some of the character skills and the required level that is needed to learn them and these changes are the following:
