Patch Notes Version 484
Released March 2, 2011
PWI: Genesis Expansion is here!
2 New Classes
A whole new world opens up as a new race rises from below. Experience Perfect World through the eyes of the Earthguard. Become a heavy sword weilding Seeker, or the magical Mystics who summon monsters to fight by their side!
*As with the Rising Tide expansion, the Earthguard will receive their Demon/Sage content in a future update.
New Manufacturing skill — Runecrafting
Unlock the mysteries of these runes and empower your gear and become the ultimate fighter! Everything gets started with the new Envoys next to General Summers. Remember, performing Bounty Hunter Dailies will reward you with the Tokens you need to learn this new skill!

Territory Wars Changes
First off, there are 5 new territories for factions to fight over!
Secondly, a Territory Map Reset! The map has been reset to default. The stage is set for a whole new land grab race to begin. Will your faction be the next to conquer all of Perfect World?
While the rewards remain as 10 Million Big Notes, the text on the TW map still says Mirage Celestones. This will be fixed in a future update.

Level 3 Factions can now set up their own base of operations.
To start a guild base, you must have the following requisites:
Level 3 Faction Leader
Ten Million Big Notes
Inside this base your faction will have access to exclusive daily events and be able to craft powerful items found only inside the base.

Supply Stash Change
Items in the Supply Stash have been updated with several new items. *Please note that some gear now have a time duration.
Event Calender – The Even Calender has been disabled for the time being. This will be returning in a future update.
