Pirates of the Burning Sea patch 2.5 will hit the Testbed this week, and Producer Michelle "Misha" Williams has outlined what players can expect to see in the update. Perhaps the biggest news is that players will be able to purchase society and character renames in Treasure Aisle. Also, the simple pipe and cat pet will be added to the shop.
A prototype of the new fishing feature will be available on the 2.5 Testbed, but the full version won't arrive until patch 2.6. For more details, read Williams' entire blog entry.
