Patch Notes 27.7.X7.1

In the latest release we have pushed some bug fixes and improvements.

Fixed:

  • Display issues with 16x16 characters in all Leaderboards, Death Screen, New Character Screen
  • The fall back news post (if no other news is present) no longer points to Wild Shadow forums
  • New Pets from pet stones have been put into their proper pet families

Note that while these pets can be obtained via fusing, they are extremely rare. The skins can also be obtained via using the appropriate pet stone:
  • Sir Bagston: ? ? ? ?
  • Goldy: ? ? ? ?
  • Giant Vampire Bat: Spooky
  • Pumpkin Head: Spooky
  • Jaco: Spooky


Putting the new pets into the proper pet families solves some issues players were encountering attempting to fuse.

Pet Stone descriptions were updated to describe the change in family of the pet, also explicitly mentioning that the rarity does not get upgraded and the skin will be overwritten in case of fusing.

We hope you enjoy the new content, have fun collecting the “candy” loot and are lucky enough to get the exclusive Headless Rider skin! Read on below for details.

  • Note that any leftover tokens will be removed after the Halloween event is be over

Reskinned Halloween Items
  • The 6 T11 Halloween weapons now drop instead of the 6 T11 Winter weapons

  • A rare consumable and just the right thing for your trick or treat experience. You will have to find one to figure out what it exactly does though.

  • Purchase limit functionality added (this will not be applied to all boxes)


Fixes:


Steam
  • Various fixes for issues with the Steam overlay for purchases
  • Issues with various foreign currencies

Stacked shots
  • Stacked shots were fixed in various locations. Some encounters were rebalanced as a result but death shouldn’t come as such a surprise anymore :)
  • Djinn, Lucky Djinn, Grand Sphinx
  • Jon Bilgewater the Pirate King, Mini Larva, Armor Guard, Zombie Hulk, Mini Werewolf
  • All Artifacts in Tomb of the Ancients and Bes
  • All Spiders in Spider Den and The Crawling Depths
  • Several enemies in the Shatters: The Forgotten King, Royal Guardian J, The Forgotten Sentinel, Stone Paladin, Stone Mage, Fire Mage, Fire Adept, Glacier Archmage and everyone's favorite, the Ice Adept!
  • Fixed/reduced stacked patterns occurring from stuns
  • All Killer Pillars at the Avatar of the Forgotten King are now Stun Immune
  • Ice Sphere, Archmage's Ice Sphere, Ice Portal, Fire Portal, Inferno, White Dragon Orb

Various
  • Fixed Horseman Anchors preventing players from pausing in the Godlands
  • Fixed several typos and language errors
  • Fixed The Cursed Crown animation
  • Fixed trade request panel breaking the locklist

Changes

  • Balance adjustments for Stone Mage, Fire Mage and to a smaller extent the Grand Sphinx, due to stacked shot fixes (see below)
  • The Cursed Amulet of Zombification is now known as the Amulet of Dispersion and no longer zombifies, revives or disappears upon leaving the area
  • Interact hotkey can now be used to reject trade requests and to open the guild board
  • Increased Court of Oryx portal duration (this was already part of a hotfix recently), reduced HP of Janus' Chest
  • Significantly reduced damage threshold for untiered drops from Skuld
  • Slight change to Abyss of Demons DEF drops (small increase overall)
  • Adjusted projectile aesthetics for the Forgotten Sentinel
  • Craig will now randomly spawn Puppet Master Encore or Lair of Shaitan portals.

Notes:
This event will last for about 2-3 weeks. After the time is up, everything will be reverted to it’s old state but of course you get to keep your items. The only exception are the Halloween Candy Tokens. They will disappear when the next patch is applied. So be sure to double click them when you have 50 to create the Headless Rider Skin.


Our continued thanks goes to our community for providing great assets via our draw tool that we sometimes just have to touch up slightly to get them into the game! A special thanks this time around goes out to Clickbait for creating the cool Vampire Lord.
