Greetings fellow necromancers. Rumor has it that we may soon see many of the less talented (aka non-caster) running about with buckets upon their heads. While I personally have no intention of doing said donning of the bucket, I am certain that many of the uglier ones out there would leap at the opportunity. This is the information as found on the Official Vanguard Site.
"Take a look at what's in store for Game Update 4!
The Vanguard team has plenty of updates planned for the 2008 year; the first of many will be Game Update 4 which is already well under way in terms of development. Those who played the game over the holidays had the chance to pick up a festive flying mount known as Randolph. Adventurers of all levels traveled the skies of Telon, guided by a reindeer mount who took flight during the Festival of Gloriann. With the holidays behind us, Randolph now remains grounded, but those of you who enjoyed a personal flying mount will be excited to learn that the much anticipated flying mount quest will be available with Game Update 4! It certainly won't be easy, but the reward will definitely be worth the risk!
PC optimizations are in the works! The first phase is underway and will be evident with the release of the next update. What does this mean for you? Well, some bones are being removed from character models in order to ensure that a variety of helmets can fit correctly on player's heads. Yes, visible helmets are making their long awaited debut in Vanguard! We managed to sneak a few sample shots of what the art team is currently working on. Although not quite complete, you can see just how fantastic these helms are going to look when finished and in game!
Keep an eye out for additional information on Game Update 4 which should be coming soon!"
