  • Fiery Soul Cutter effect no longer works when disarmed.

  • You can now assign any usable item, ability or spell to the action bar by pressing the action bar shortcut from the corresponding screens.
  • Changed the positioning and structure of the version in the main menu. Added discord link.
  • Art of wands was flipped horizontally so its now easier to visually parse them from staves/spears.
  • When you selling/buying items from the merchant the scroll does not reset anymore.

If you want to help out you are welcome to check this build out.

Cheers and happy crawling!

If all goes well, I will continue to work on the backlog with your feedback the next week in a similar fashion: Updating the beta and then releasing an update into the main build!

Cheers and happy crawling!
