Update 2 - February 9, 2016[edit]

Bug Fixes[edit]

  • Fixed a sound issue in which the Wings of Love glider repeated harps too often.

Late Notes[edit]

The Shatterer[edit]

  • Fixed a bug that caused the Shatterer to react as though he was not broken if his defiance bar was completed in the last 3 seconds of the break phase.
  • Fixed a scaling issue with the Shatterer's defiance bar that caused it to become excessively difficult at higher scales.
  • Increased the Shatterer's health slightly to compensate for reduced defiance bar scaling.
  • Increased the Pulsating Crystal Node's health slightly to allow more players to damage it before it is destroyed, allowing them to gain credit for the Crystal Healing Denier achievement.
  • Decreased the scaling on the Pulsating Crystal Node's defiance bar slightly to compensate for the higher health.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause the Shatterer's Branded minions to inconsistently give credit to the Branded Bane achievement. Note that non-event Branded minions still do not count toward this achievement, only Branded minions summoned by the Shatterer.
  • Fixed a bug that would cause players to be launched without the bomb bundle if they rapidly pressed the F Interact key.

Adventures[edit]

  • Fixed a bug that prevented adventure achievements from being awarded if the reward chest was opened while in PvP or the PvP lobby.
  • Players who have been affected by this bug can now re-earn credit toward achievements by earning silver or gold in the affected adventure.
