Release: OB 0.5.9

Patch OB 0.5.9 kicks off Ramsgate’s Dark Harvest event, increases weapon archonite drop rates, and puts the hurt on various bugs.


  • The Dark Harvest has returned to Ramsgate, but something about this year’s event feels … sinister. Townspeople murmur of a dark force building in the Shattered Isles. ΔΩ­ ­ ­­ ­ ­YΩU­ ­ ­­ ­ ­CㅏㄹㄹY­ ­ ­­ ­ ­ㅏ­ ­ ­­ ­ ­ΛㅏNTЭㄹN?

  • Upgraded to Unreal Engine version 4.20.3. This introduces some optimization improvements and helps strengthen our internal workflow. There may be some kinks that we will continue to work out. If you notice any bugs, please send them our way!

  • Reworked the way that elemental damage status effects trigger. They should now trigger more predictably and more frequently.

  • Increased weapon archonite drop rates. Patrols have increased by 100%, while pursuits and expeditions have increased by 75%.

  • While the storm on the horizon seems to have settled, a new aetheric disturbance has taken its place. Those who go astray will pay.

  • Exclusive Dark Harvest cosmetic content will be available in the store from now until November 1st, get it before it’s gone!
