  • Party System: You can now form parties with other players you meet in the game. That means you can share XP and see each other on the world map without having to be in the same clan (or any clan). Party members will also (like clan members) be preferred target for support abilities like heals.
  • Diplomacy System: Clan leaders and managers can now add other clans to a “friend” and “enemy” lists. Clan members will then see those friend and enemy tags and be able to easily recognize your clan’s status with another clan. These tags are NOT visible to anyone outside of your clan. They are one-directional (the other clan can choose a different status for you).
  • The Healer: Added the Healer (Cloth) armor class to the game with lots of new abilities. The healer is still work-in-progress and will be balanced based on your feedback. It comes with a new ability type – links – that should open a lot more gameplay options for team-players who like a supportive playstyle.
  • Added a “camera lock” option to the control menu (J) that centers the camera on your character, disregarding mouse movement.
  • Fixed a bug that showed the “error 418” popup unnecessarily often to some players.
  • Major performance improvement: There are no more lag spikes when large numbers of mobs spawn at the same time.
  • Major performance improvement: Massively reduced the base load of the game servers, leading to a smoother experience.
  • Fixed some holes in the environment colliders that separate world map areas from each other.
