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

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.



  • Dismantling traps will no longer give Explosive Jar back.


  • Players can no longer knock out and break the Emissary bosses from the Underwater Dungeon. PLEASE NOTE: Any existing thralls gained in this way will be removed once spawned from your inventory into the world.
  • Inventory of Gazelles is now back from 10 to 20.
  • Fixed an issue that made a number of NPCs unavailable in the game.


  • Fixed an issue that would prevent climbing in caves and other locations.
  • Fixed a visual issue in which human NPC corpses would flicker or disappear.
  • Nordheimer heart now correctly drops from Tier 4 Nordheimer enemies.
  • MaxhealthBuff now correctly restores max health instead of stamina upon expiration.


  • Resources can be harvested in dungeons again (i.e Black Ice in the Temple of Frost).


  • Conflict option in Server Browser’s Combat Mode drop-down is now functional again.
  • Server Settings in menu can now be saved again.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented resolution settings from applying correctly.
  • The Event log privacy option is available again in the server settings menu.

Still no bubble fix?:(((


Found an issue yesterday, my clan was fighting on the Black hand ship, rolled backwards and into a hole under the stairs, couldn’t climb out and lost everything as we couldn’t access their body from under the stairs, please please please fill this gap in! Thanks

Read the patch notes the climbing issiu is in it

Not the issue I had, no its not

Your problem was last week under the nowing issus from not climbing areas so i think it is fixed

Nope there’s still a hole, in which I am stuck in. Like under the map, but I’m under a structure

I’m cleaning up some replies in this thread. Please remain objective and respectful with your feedback and commentary, and please refrain from being at each others’ throats if you disagree on a topic. If you really need to debate or argue a topic, kindly take it to DMs.


Hi Funcom, please test your updates more throuroughly before sending them out. I know you guys try to keep us connected and addicted to the game but updating 21 gig every week or two just for an update that break the game in a way is no good.

For over a year vathis was thrallable you make it so he can’t be how long did it take you to remove a thrall that is equivalent to Spinas…dakas… Captain…ravager… felshtearer… You talk about balanace what a joke you allowed a week of bombs being made at half cost a duplication glitch with dismantling benches that worked on gas orbs hardened steel …steel starmetal etc and you talk about how removing a thrall that’s been in the game for a very long time is balancing the game? How about we remove the pre nerf medium armors silent legion with almost 1000 armor the Mitra Spears 50dmg 50 armor pen… I have played your game since day 1 of preview and have wholly supported it but now you have completely dissapointed me with wasting time on certain parts of this update. you guys can’t focus on anything important until it’s completely forced every time you release something you break something you fix things that aren’t broken there is meshing still in the game I don’t know what else to say other then I will never buy another one of your games dlc or anything you create on the principal that your unable to do anything right…to me that last vathis I owned was a collectable thing proof I’d been around a long time people have hundreds of captains and other equivalent thralls…

mod edit: Removing unnecessary comment about moderation.


20.6GB hotgfix? The game is already sitting at 75GB. Are duplicate assets and such being left in? Any plans on trimming the excess in a future update? Thanks for getting the hotfix out so quickly, just wondering about the overall bloat.

Are consoles getting the riddle of steel dlc?

Yes, according to Ignatius it should be by the end of the month.

Sorry, I’m not good at linking old threads on but I took a screenshot of his reply.

Thank you for the clarification.

God bubbles disappear when server resets making them a waste of time and leaving bases vulnerable. This is MANY PLAYERS #1 issue!!! Get the damn things fixed it is absolutely ridiculous to have this massive update so soon and not fix that. What the hell is going on! Fix it!

They disappear when servers reset it’s a MAJOR ISSUE!!!
