Pre-Alpha 0.4.9.7 Patch Notes


#1

Smaller update this time around, but we’ve fixed several bugs including a major memory leak and sound issue, as well as a new skill tree for Mana Strike and other improvements.

Mechanics

  • Due to changes with how the stash saves, stashes from previous versions will not carry over to this version but stashes will carry over for future updates
  • SC and HC now have separate stashes and shard lists
  • Gold is now saved between all SC characters and all HC characters
  • Implemented solo challenge mode: your stash, shards, and gold are separate for your character. A character CAN be solo challenge and hardcore
