These are the Release Notes for Open Enrollment v2.7. The release build of OE 2.7 has been running on the Test Server since Friday, August 20 and was deployed to Live on Monday, August 23.

What Is In This Release

This release focuses on speeding up the production of Pharasma statues by making their ingredients easier to obtain and reducing all crafting times to 1/10 their previous settings. The amount of DI generated by Pharasma statues was also increased significantly so that settlements with them will require noticeably less territory to maintain their structures.

Full Release Notes
