New to Dauntless
Behemoth Dye Rumours
Looking to expand your dye collection? Patch 1.5.4 brings back four Behemoth dyes — Grievance, Plume, Eclipse, and Supernova — and introduces a more reliable way to get them. Instead of crossing your fingers and hoping for good RNG, you can now guarantee a dye rumour drop by meeting certain secret requirements during battle.
Paladin of Vylmark Reworked
After listening to feedback from the community, we’ve reworked the visual effects on the Paladin of Vylmark chest piece. Players can now bask in the lights of the aurora borealis.
The in-game journal continues to expand. You can now find all Flameborn and Sporestruck Behemoth variants in the journal. The entries will unlock when you next encounter these foes.
