Update 2 - August 7, 2018[edit]

Bug Fix[edit]

  • Fixed a client crash.

Late Notes[edit]

  • Night of Fires: Fixed a bug that could cause Canach to fixate on the player instead of opening the first gate.
  • Night of Fires: The gate guards now do not appear until the "Infiltrate the Forged war camp" event begins. This fixes a possible timing issue in multiplayer in which the guards could be defeated by another player before the instance owner had decided to attack them.
