Forsaken World: Nightfall - Frostgate Fjord Patch Notes

Here's the Patch Notes for Frostgate Fjord for Forsaken World which introduces 12v12 flag control PvP (My notes in parentheses):

New Game Features:

Frostgale Fjord:
-New 12v12 Battleground located in the far north of Oeste.
-Enter the Battlefield by queuing in the party finder (press "T") between noon and midnight every day. Individual apply only, groups will be dissolved upon entering the Battlefield.
-Matchmaking is randomly determined and based on character Level. All characters at or above Lv40 are eligible to play the Battlefield. Only the first 10 matches in a day will count for points.
-Matches last 25 minutes, or until one team reaches 3600 points.
-All participants will receive Battleground points, players on the winning team will gain more points. Daily quests within the battleground will grant extra points. Wins and participation will also grant a chance at a White Rune or a rare mount.

Expanded Soul Power Trees:
-Additional Soul Power skills are enabled that affect PvP and Soulforce skills. Unlocking these skills will enable White Rune slots. (Black Runes can now be enabled and will slot any color Advanced Rune)

-Guild Treasure can now be unlocked in the base! Complete Guild Base Quests to unlock the Treasure chest and gain access.
-New Guild Base quests have been added that do not require leaving the base. These quests also have a chance to grant access to the Guild Treasure chest once it has been unlocked.
-Continue doing Base Quests every day to level up your Guild Treasure for better rewards! The chest is reset every week so you will need to stay active to continue to get the benefits of Guild Treasure.
-Rewards from the Guild Treasure Chest include Soul Coins and a chance at Gem Light potions and various Level Gems.

Gear Upgrades:
-Fashion Upgrading is now available at Armorers to add stats to all fashion pieces.
-Inferno Shadow Gear: Talk to Arwen Starlight in Twilight Hall with a Lv75 Hero Weapon (EB Weapon) equipped to start the quest Glimmer of Hope. At the end of the quest unlock a powerful new Lv77 weapon.

-New Charlie's Tavern Quests in Nightfall Citadel. Find out how the building of the new tavern is going with a new quest line, finally get some answers about the mysterious pole (Not really) in the corner of the tavern.

New Items:
-Golden Fleece, available in the Eyrda Boutique will allow you to upgrade fashion to be identifiable at Gabriel in Freedom Harbor. This is a new feature so not all fashion sets can currently been upgraded, check the Known Issues list for the fashion that will be added soon!
-The long-awaited Devil Acolyte and Phantom Shroud sets are now the new orbs. Check the Eyrda Boutique to rock the latest styles, pets, and mounts.

Bug Fixes and Tweaks:
-Pets are now easier to heal. AoE heals will now include pets, and a bone icon appears under party member's portraits to quickly target their pet.Pets can also now be healed with potions when they are hungry and cannot be summoned.
-If a player sets a durability limit for the Combat Assist, they will automatically town portal when their gear hits the selected durability.
-Mining Truck in Immortal Rift is now faster.
-Soulforce Skills now have a 30second Cooldown in PvP. Some of the new Nyos/Dyos Soul Power skills and runes will make Soulforce more useful in PvP.
