Default v1.355 Double Accel

For the New Years patch we are implementing something that has been asked for repeatedly by players - a Double Acceleration upgrade. If you already have Accel you will be able to buy Double Accel in the buy items window that previously had the Accel option. Double Accel is great for people with limited time. Turning it on while you also have Accel on will double all of the normal Accel effects. You'll consume your Rested Time at 4x (6x for rollover time) while giving you 4x (or 6x) all gold, exp, loot, and resources from kills (excluding the items you get from a first kill on each boss). It also again doubles your traveling speed by giving you a 75% (or 83.5%) chance of avoiding non-boss enemy encounters and even halves your class ability cooldowns again but not in arenas.

We specifically chose to not have Double Accel affect class ability cooldowns in arena because we didn't want this upgrade to be seen as a Pay-To-Win upgrade, but rather as a convenience feature for those who really want it. Along with doubling everything Accel did, it also doubled the price: $99.95. Time to spend that X-mas money!

Another interesting feature of Double Accel is that you can turn it on without Accel on and it will provide you with a 2x bonus instead of 3x when in RRT if for some reason you wished for that.

We're also implementing another convenience perk for Double Accel: if you are training a skill that is 9 over your player level and have Double Accel you will not have a cap on the stack size of the trophies you sacrifice.
