This patch will push your skills to their pixel-perfect limits thanks to major improvements to collision and dodging. New chain blade models, bug fixes, and improvements to the login process round out this patch.
FOCUS: COLLISION UPDATES
Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive, and Dodge
Improvements to dodging reliability and functionality based on community feedback.
Slayers will now more reliably dodge through and away from Behemoths, even in close range.
This will allow for tighter combat and promote combat mastery.
Collision mapping around players is now tighter and improved.
Body movements and staggers have also been modified.
These changes will improve movement around Behemoths and Behemoth attacks, allowing for closer combat and better predictability when getting hit.
Additionally, it will reduce frustration around player-on-player collision.
Aetherclean™ Removes Sticky Messes!
Resolves issues causing Slayers to “stick” to Behemoths, Behemoth attacks, and other Slayers.
This will reduce frustration with dodging and evasion, and improve coordinated team attacks.
WEAPONS AND ARMOUR
Blades of Glory
New Shrike Chain Blades model added.
Improved Chain Blade pull reliability. Backflips still look rad.
(Edit: Backflips were previously noted as being sweet. Upon further investigation, they are rad.)
Careful With That Axe, Eugene
Fixed bugs related to Axe strikes and charges not hitting when in range.
Fixed bugs related to Axe charge VFX staying on screen after striking.
Pump Up The Jam
Tuned various Behemoth attack damage, frequency and collision.
Tuned some armor resistance and Behemoth damage values.
Protect Your Neck
Balanced health granted when reviving teammates multiple times.
Increased delays and the reduced maximum value granted when using Fortress.
Fire damage will no longer apply to players if they are in the invulnerability-frames of a dodge.

CLOSED BETA - KNOWN ISSUES
We’ve been hard at work squashing bugs and making improvements to Dauntless. Thank you to everyone for their patience and continued support! Your feedback has been instrumental in helping us track down and resolve these issues.
We believe we’ve found and fixed all progression-blocking bugs but please contact [email protected] if you are stuck because of a quest that will not complete or if you are still affected by armour pieces reverting to tier 5.
We’re continuing to optimize and improve performance, especially in Ramsgate. If your game is crashing while joining or while in Ramsgate, please try lowering your graphic settings (especially resolution).
Do not log into Dauntless from multiple places at the same time. It will lead to account data corruption.
Menus, icons, and controller support are a continued work in progress. Please use a mouse and keyboard where a controller is not fully supported.
Guild Chat may stop working when returning from a hunt. It should start working if you log out and log back in.
Collecting Aether Wisps will not charge lanterns.
Lightening bolts may not hit/collide with turrets after being reflected by the player during a Nayzaga hunt.
Behemoths may occasionally walk in irregular patterns. Fix this by slaying them.
Gnasher Chainblades will not connect on any hits. While we look into this, please use a different set of chainblades on your hunts.
