Game Update August 15, 2023

Around 8:30 AM UTC+2, game servers will restart for a game update to be deployed.

Trader Event Preparations
Changes to Item Drops & Selling Prices
  • Increased the Dino Dollar selling value of loot items largely known as "trash loot", turning them into useful loot.
    • Increased stack sizes for these items so that you won't be having a hard time bringing them with you.
  • Decreased the Dino Dollar selling value of Upgrade Items.
    • If you have been storing Upgrade Items as a Dino Dollar reserve ‒ that is, with the aim of selling them at the market later ‒ we advise you to sell them before the update goes live.
    • If you have been storing Upgrade Items for the sole purpose of upgrading your equipment, nothing will change for you.
  • The selling price on the market now decreases more sharply for items with a level below that of the selling player.
  • Added Entelodon skull and skeleton loot items.
  • The main goal of these changes is to improve the situation of players farming in the game's high-level areas (level 50+), who have been at a relative disadvantage because they could not benefit from the "multi drop" mechanic that encourages players to hunt mobs way above their own level ‒ simply because the game does not have enemy units with a level greater than 55.
  • For low to mid level players, the Dino Dollar output from farming remains about the same.
    • Just make sure to pick up all the loot items ‒ there is no more "trash loot" now!
Improvements to Mob Spawns
  • On respawn, mobs now have an added attack on sight delay of 6 seconds. This means you have plenty of time to get out of the way when powerful enemies respawn right at your position.
  • Refactored spawn distribution system to react faster and more precisely to allow for an optimal spawn area selection.
    • Also reduced the tendency of mob groups to cluster around their spawn position.
  • Increased the amount of enemy units that spawn in the level 50 to 55 areas of Maujak Mountains.
  • A number of quests spawning Smilodons will now spawn a more balanced selection of regular and strong mobs:
    • Coldclaw Valley
      • Catherine Burton (level 36) · "Secure Catherine's Place"
      • Sossa Oakley (level 43) · "The Smilodon Hunt"
    • Maujak Mountains
      • Hilda Gunflint (level 49) · "Past Cure"
      • Norah Campbell (level 52) · "Finally, Upholstery"
      • Baldur Whitmere (level 53) · "Yellow Snow"
        • This quest was also misnamed "The Secret Ingredient", tasking players to "fetch rock salt" instead of "driving off leaky animals".
        • The quest name "Yellow Snow" was instead incorrectly applied to quest "Business As Usual", which tasks players to "collect new orders".
Changes to Mobs
  • Adjusted the attributes of entelodon / smilodon / brontops mobs to turn them into more worthy opponents.
Other Changes
  • Fixed texts for two quests of Maujak Mountain NPC Baldur Whitmere.
  • Fixed an issue that could temporarily prevent players from entering the game with select avatars in their account.
