Here are the Release Notes for Update 28 Patch 1, published on Wednesday, October 21st.

Of Special Note:


The Night Revels!
The Night Revels is a new seasonal event in Dungeons & Dragons Online. Begin your festivities in Delera's Graveyard when the event is active! Defeat monsters in Delera's Graveyard to collect either Darkest Chocolate or a special key that will allow you to access one of the four Night Revels-themed dungeons! Complete the dungeons to collect quest-specific ingredients that, combined with the Darkest Chocolate you get from defeating monsters in the Graveyard, can be used to acquire new Night Revels items!
