The Winds of Rage update arrives but at a high cost. The memory of Madun reemerges as Chundoon seeks help to bring closure to the Thorntail Guardian, Uzume, who is currently inconsolable in Thornwind Cavern after Madun’s sacrifice. 

The Winds of Rage update is NOW LIVE! Log in now to enter Thornwind Cavern and put an end to Uzume’s destructive grief, upgrade your Overture Talisman to a new tier—Skywatch, and get a bird’s-eye view of upcoming daily rewards with the new Daily Perks calendar, and more!

If you run into any issues with this update, be sure to check the Known Issues thread on the Blade & Soul forums for things we’re already working on. If that doesn’t help, please contact our customer support team for further assistance.
