Patch Preview: Alpha 0.6

(Updated 01/15/2019)
 

Overview

We’re gearing up to make the first release of 2019 a big one!

As this patch will be the inaugural 0.6 release, we’re going into more detail than normal. On account of our extensive changes, not all of them are reflected below. Feel free to browse our more detailed patch notes when they become available next month!
 

Highlights

  • Screen Shake is now available.
    • This can be toggled in the settings menu.
  • Implemented ragdoll physics.

Items

    • Swords no longer have the Increased Attack Speed implicit property. They were given this as a stopgap until they could be given a fast attack rate.

(This list may not be exhaustive.)

UI
  • Added a flyout skill selector for quicker & more convenient skill switching.

Impressed with the rapid progress of this potentially fantastic rpg that will tremble the very existence of this world and stand side by side with PoE :slight_smile: Keep up the good work

At this point there are a few too many things in progress to give a more specific window. The sooner the better of course!

I am hoping this game doesn’t just stand side by side with POE, but makes that game obsolete as POE did to Diablo. I presently play POE religiously with friends, but I have a sour taste in my mouth with the game due to how the developers purposefully neglect certain aspects of the game that need major QoL updates, while they rake in the money from their horribly over priced and poorly optimized MTX.

Not to be all needy and stuff, but do you guys have a rough ETA yet?:slight_smile:
Completely unrelated side question: How do I get my Ancient Champion Banner to appear in the forum? Since I got that supporter pack. Figured this would be just as good a place to ask as any since everyone interested in this thread must’ve gotten the ancient champion pack!

Unfortunately we’re not able to be more specific than “some time this month.”

It partially depends on how the QA process goes, and if the patch isn’t released prior to some of us attending PAX then that could result in further delays.

Edit: And he automatically added my banner for me. You guys rock.

Thanks!

Also awarded you the Ancient Champion badge as I see the automated assignment appears to have failed. Sorry about that! Our web developer has investigated and resolved a couple of causes of this, but we may not quite have it working 100% of the time just yet.

Sarno is by far the best community manager I’ve seen in many years trolling multiple forums.

Im sure once LE goes big he’ll probably get a bunch of good looking secretaries to do all the replies on the forums for him, but for now we’ve very lucky!
