Wondering where the patch notes are at. Looked on the dev website and didn't see anything. Surely they'd tell us somewhere, right?

So can players pull 8 leves from each city? Or are we restricted to 8 total worldwide?

8 worldwide. But the 48hr timer is server time, not from when you start a leve.

aresti, I appreciate the effort, but I'm pretty sure those are not todays patch notes. They look like the patch notes from when open beta started. I am looking for the notes of the patch that went out today.

I guess I'll have to figure out how to get around to the other cities. I received a pair of cooking recpies from two culinary leves, but the materials for them can not be found in Lima. I know for sure they can be caught at Gridna like the crayfish and marmot. Now I wonder if I have to travel to the other cities and hope to earn recipes for my character's home region?

Apologies, but SE only release patch notes for each beta test and that is what I thought you meant.

They put out notes for the last update, and I assume the will for this one too.

You don't need to be posting this in multiple threads.
