Update 2.1.0 Patch Notes


  • Secret World Legends expands into a new region: Kaidan, Tokyo. Also known as Ground Zero, the events that took place here are what set everything you know into motion.  Once you have finished the story up past “What was Missed” (or “Whispering Tide”), your faction handler assigns you to visit the Council of Venice Headquarters to earn field agent certification.

  • New Elite difficulties of Scenarios have been added.

  • A new weapon skin category has been added to the Dressing Room, allowing for collecting and customization of weapon visuals. Whenever you bind a weapon with a unique appearance (or “skin”) to your character, you learn that skin.  Skins for all weapons you currently possess and have bound to your character at the time of this update will be added to your dressing room.



  • A report option has been added to the chat menu when right-clicking on a player’s name. This feature allows players to send an automatic report to Customer Service for offensive behavior in chat. Reporting a player with this option will automatically add them to your ignore list.
  • Any un-used Custodial Relics have been converted to Expired Custodial Relics. These can be used to gain 1,000 Anima Shards.
  • Whispering Tide achievements have been converted to Eternal Echoes.

  • Draculesti Legend #8 has been moved to an accessible location.
  • Updated the source text for the Young Vargr pet.

  • Fixed an issue where nametags from players would disappear when they die and resurrect close to you.
  • Being mounted while strafing onto a jump pad now properly launches the player.
  • Dreyugr Lord claims to have no heart. After a brief sword-aided interrogation and a lot of blood, we have proven he has a heart. He will again (sometimes) drop his heart upon death.
  • The Mayan Warpaint and Clown Nose museum items no longer state they require 50 AP to use.
  • The lore and achievements menu will now open to the last found lore or last earned achievement.



  • Spirit Blade has been reworked and will no longer decay over time. Instead, when activating Spirit Blade, your next 10 Blade attacks will deal bonus damage. Reforging your Spirit Blade while the damage bonus effect is active will give you additional empowered attacks.
  • The Soulforged Blade passive for Dancing Blade now adds 3 attacks of Spirit Blade damage.
  • The Hardened Blade passive for Swallow Cut now has a 30% chance to deal bonus damage without consuming a Spirit Blade charge.
  • The Rhythmic Blade weapon has been changed to have a chance to grant additional charges of Spirit Blade damage whenever you gain charges of Spirit Blade damage. The amount gained and the chance to gain them scale with the amount of charges added. For example, when adding 1 charge, there is a 31% chance to gain 1 additional charge. When adding 6 charges, you always gain 2 additional charges.

  • Enemies who are immune to crowd control, such as dungeon bosses, no longer are affected by crowd control diminishing returns. What this means is that any time a boss is casting an interruptable attack, any player can interrupt it without worry of affecting the boss crowd control resistance for their next interruptable attack.
  • Fixed an issue where NPCs who were immune to crowd control would gain diminishing returns even when not affected by the crowd control effect.
