PS4 Hotfix (16.05.2019) - Critical fixes and wiping of unintended thralls

#1

Hey everybody!

We’re releasing a new hotfix for the game that should take care of a few critical issues introduced with the last patch.

One of those issues was the ability to knock out and break some NPC bosses, which is completely unintentional. Since it could result in some critical balancing problems within the game, there will be a targeted wipe of any boss-mob that has been captured: that affects ALL NPCs from this list:

The Watcher Above
Half-Child of Dagon
The Captain Below
The Ritual Keeper
Samar the Blade
Enia the Searcher
Obsun of Hyrkania
Ness of Shem
Moras of the Sands
Hat’She the Mad
Seeker Ophelia
Brandt of Zingara
Brood-Guard Assin
Brood-Guard Issis
Vathis the Hierophant
Emissary of Haon-Dor
Emissary of Tsathoggua

This wipe will come into action once all official servers are being restarted to apply the patch. This auto-wipe will only affect official servers. We sincerely apologize for the short notice, but we agreed that this would cause an extreme imbalance in the game mechanics if not acted upon swiftly.

Thanks again community for your continued feedback and support.

And I still have to wait 10 to 15 minutes before the door load so I can get out. Still invisible enemies kill you before you see them.

Will this will ever change?? Doubt it.

buddy, idk why you’re crying. ymir takes 2500 npc kills. if you actually had allies or something you can grind out at LEAST a god a day

#15

that is inevitable. it’s due to your personal lag. i’m in a server and rarely will I fight invisible enemies. I have 2 friends out of maybe around 8 that fight invisible enemies constantly. it’s your personal lag. I honestly can only recommend getting faster connection or switching servers.

#16

If you dont have work, studies or social life you can play Conan, is that what you mean?

@KoIFy That’s your fault for deliberately using bugged NPC’s and then not even reading the forum enough to realize they are gonna be gone, yet you come here to cry, so toxic

Rip our emissaries gear, all good tho big grind, but longer god protection would be ideal we can only grind so many 12 hours little over 24 would be ideal so we can schedule when we gotta grind out instead of taking our daily activities
