New feature: Global Depot
At the moment, each island has a depot with only local access. Items stored in the depot on Aurea, for example, cannot be accessed from Ashmor, Banuna or Yabutu right now. That pretty soon belongs to the past.
All local depots will be turned into one big global depot. Just enter a depot on any island. From there you will then be able to equip your character with weapons, armour and all the other items that you have stored in depots anywhere. Since all existing depots are now combined and scrolling through all depot slots would be a bit too much, we have added pages to it. With the autumn update, there will be 9 pages available with 70 slots each.
New feature: Status Icons
We will introduce a couple of new status icons that indicate in which kind of area your character is standing and if you have received a letter from another player. There will be four new ones: having unread letters, standing in a protection zone, standing in a fighting zone, standing in an arena zone. As the images show the icons are displayed in the user interface.
The closed envelope icon shows that you have unread letters. The shield indicates that you are standing in a protection zone.

That's it! I hope you liked our first fansite-exclusive update teaser. Some more minor changes will be announced in the public teaser next week.
