Lul the spellchekker allowed to experience a whooping half hour of sunlight :crazy_face::crazy_face::crazy_face: is this patch happening for x box today too ???

Yes. 14:00 OSLO time is the expected release for Xbox, 15:00 for PC. Though do try to keep the thread specific to PS4 so its easier for the community team to address PS4 specific comments.

I didn’t see it in the list, but is the scrolling bug in the workbenches with named thralls fixed? It’s really annoying and honestly I’m surprised it still wasn’t fixed in the last update.

When will the exploit with the bridge be fixed? When will the damage from arrows be corrected?

what about all the cheater on official serve?

i wonder about that too :joy:

Woohoo!! Thankyou so much Ignasis and our devs, I hope to try it out tomorrow. Should it log as completed automatically, or should we do one last round trip…? Either way I do not mind, and am just happy it is fixed.

Does thi refer to the crafting station bug where the stations own recipes (not the thralls) were cut off…? If so that is great, many thanks. Although just putting it out there for the record, it wasnt just the Armourers Bench, but others such as the Carpenters and Blacksmiths too…

*Bonus Question: will thralls now attack correctly again without getting confused, or will that issue be addressed in a latter patch?

Thankyou very much for the fixes guys! We both needed them and appreciate them.

Lol no you didn’t

Hey, will this fix the offline raiding glitches? I will not go in more details, enough people is abusing this already

Since the update I keep getting stuck at the obelisks when travelling through.
I can roll and stutter but have to log out login in again to get away from the obelisk. Which is not great on PvP

My purge bar doesn’t fill up on official server, even decrease every time I log in, it will be fixed soon?

You should be able to complete it upon finding one last landmark, the Slithering Beach, which is located in the eastern part of the small island west of the Penitent’s Crossing in the Jungle biome.

Yep!

No changes that affect this have been made in this patch, but that’s something the team is working on and will be focusing on in the upcoming patches.

Certain exploits that allowed for that have been addressed, and we’ll continue tackling any further ones that either we find or are reported to us.

Welcome to the forum and thank you for reporting this, we’ll forward it to the team.

Does this happen in singleplayer or online? Which tools are being affected?

If possible, please open a new topic sharing more details regarding the issue.

Welcome to the forums Lenny, could you please open a new topic regarding this issue?
