Patch 0.5.4

Aug 19 2021

Main Story Reset

All existing characters that were created before Patch 0.5.0 and completed the Main Story quest previously, have had their Main Story Quest progress reset. You will need to go back to the Lighthouse and re pick up the quest from Lauren.

Developer Notes: This was done to allow old characters to experience the new main story expansion just recently added. Due to the nature of the quest changing over the past year it required a full reset.

 

New Windows Launcher

The Windows Launcher of the game has been updated to the latest run-time. Fixing numerous run-time bugs that were out of our control. Including:

  • The Memory Leak has finally been addressed, and now only minor leaks should remain.
  • Improvements to the text input field and caret alignment

Bug Fixes:

  • Eternal Shroud Costume should no longer make you naked.
  • The Eternal Blossom container item has had its loot table adjusted. The Costume and Pet are no longer as common. But have bad luck prevention in the event you don't get them after numerous turn-ins.

Patch 0.5.0

  • Join Elvria and help her tend to the Eternal Blossom. She is either at her house or at the fertile soil depending on the state of the Eternal Blossom quest.
