    This is a quick guide to let you know where you can find information on what is in a patch or a release patch.

    Patches are released to the game at various times as needed as well as the monthly Release patch, which is also delivered as a patch.

    There's 2 different kind of patches:

    Client Side Patch
    These are patches where you have to download the patch and then it is installed before playing.

    Server Side Patch
    Server Side patches can be released to the server, but no change on the client side is needed. You can tell when one of these has been put on the server when you get a pop-up message saying this instance will be reset, and then an option Yes or No. You can click No, and still stay in an instance if you are in the middle of something. To then connect to the current version of the server, all you need to do is leave a scene. You do not need to do anything else.

    Where to find information about a Client Side Patch
    If you download a patch that is not a part of the monthly regular Release patch, you can find that information on the main website https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/

    At the top of the page you will see a Updates section then hover your mouse over that and then select the Release Patch Notes:

    You can also use the link https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/patchnotes/ as well anytime.

    Where to find information about a Monthly Release Patch
    If you download a patch that is the Monthly regular Release, you can find that information on the main website https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/

    At the top of the page you will see a Updates section then hover your mouse over that and then select the Weekly Updates:

    You can also use the link https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/?cat=12

    And that's it! All the information for these can be found there!

    Just let me know if you would would like something else added to this specific topic or any other suggestions!
