Citadel Studios has announced that Legends of Aria has been updated with a Dungeon Expansion update that doubles the size of wilderness dungeons. On top of this, PVE players will find a new skill that will help prevent unscrupulous ganking. The spell is called Ward Evil. A glowing ball of energy, visible only to the caster will notify the caster when an outcast enemy is in range. The developers hope that “this will encourage those afraid to leave the guarded zones to check out the new dungeons.”
