Kataclysmic Confrontation Returns

Black kats are once again storming the Moorcroft Manor Archives and consuming the precious tomes within! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up and retrieve Ancient Pages from these nefarious creatures. The event will run through July 17th.

Accept the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and/or fight through kat levels in the Clockworks to find black kats. Then, visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Alchemy Machine in Haven, with your collection of Ancient Pages, to craft some Kat related gear.

If you “accidentally” perform a Dark Ritual and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or a Wicked Whisker which allow you to craft the following gear:
  • Kat Claw cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Hiss cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Eye cloak, mail, raiment
  • Black Kat cloak, mail, raiment, hood, mask
If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire.



SummerTech - Beat The Heat

The heat of summer is baking the residents of Cradle. Spiral HQ’s Department of Gremlin Engineering has done some extensive research and determined that the highly visible tech colors useful in winter also help knights blend in when infiltrating summer festivities. To that end, we’ve issued some high tech gear designed to aid knights when storming the beaches. Check out the Tech Blue, Tech Green, Tech Orange, and Tech Pink summer gear while you’re trying to beat the heat by the pool or in Firestorm Citadel. This technical gear includes such items like a Tech Charcoalers, Tech Furious Forks, Tech Spiral Soakers, Boaters, Floppy Beach Hats, and various SummerTech accessories.

The SummerTech Box contains items such as:
  • Tech Charcoaler
  • Tech Furious Fork
  • Tech Spiral Soaker
  • Boater
  • Floppy Beach Hat
  • Splash Sarong
  • Splash Trunks
  • Various new accessories

Greetings Knights!

Some knights were made ready to take off on adventure and reach new heights. For these knights, Spiral HQ has created a special set of items. Soar into Aerodynamic Boxes to zero in on costumes, Contrails Auras, Swing Wings, and all new accessories.

In order to maintain altitude, it’s important to be able to keep your speed up and maintain your course. That’s why we’ve manufactured a Airbraker shield. This shield helps deflect any incoming projectiles while in a chaotic dogfight. If that doesn’t work, dash away and hope your Chaff Pack distracts them.

The Aerodynamic Box contains items such as:
  • Airbraker shield
  • Contrails Aura
  • Swing Wings
  • Chaff Pack - Give it a Dash!
  • New Dynamic Accessories
  • Costumes
  • Accessories

More information on the Aerodynamic Prize Box and its contents may be found here.

Additional Notes:
  • A new accessory slot has been added for the ankle area. This way you can wear a back accessory along with something to keep your ankles warm. If you already had some slippers or other ankle accessories attached, they should automatically be moved to the ankle slot.
  • We believe we are now finished with some extensive work to our back end. You’ve noticed this ongoing work, but it should now be complete. In doing so, we fixed several long standing problems like the bug reporting system, Steam inventory icons, and several non-player facing issues.
  • As mentioned before, the bug reporting system is now in working order. This means you can file a bug report by hitting F2. You do this to send a log of what happened to us and report a bug you’ve seen to developers. If you need help in game, please continue to contact support so they know. Support does not review and respond to bug reports, they respond to requests and emails.
