SCARS OF THE AWAKENED
Ever vigilant, Norrathians march united under the banner of the New Combine army, deeper into the perilous continent of Velious.
Finally, the army breaches the borders of a region known as Cobalt Scar - a majestic, lush, but tormented region. And from within dark passages in the surrounding mountains, the inhabitants of Sirens Grotto beckon to all.
The first news heard from Cobalt Scar concerns tribes of Othmir that succumbed to an unfortunate fate that now threatens everyone. Further examination into the area will reveal a foreboding presence of the Awakened Legion, a force of evil that decimated dragonkind in the legendary city ofSkyshrine.
Nearby, in the watery depths of Sirens Grotto - unseen by landwalkers for the ages – it is said that the caverns hold secrets of their own. And the beguiling siren coven known as the Darkwater Sisters will not give up those secrets easily.
All the while, the Ages End Prophecy looms with its promise to see Kerafyrm - Norrath's most evil, powerful dragon - bring a violent end to the world. Heroes from every corner of Norrath are called to explore this new land in Velious and fight for a future for all.

Individual coin drops have been added to encounters in many zones including those in Destiny of Velious, Skyshrine and Chains of Eternity. When an encounter drops coin, the amount of coin will be calculated based on how many players participated in the fight, up to the maximum for that encounter which is calculated based off of the number of intended players. Looted coin rules remain unchanged. If your group is set to split coin you will still split coin evenly among all group or raid members, and if your group is set to master looter all coin will be collected by the master looter.
