Versão de Lançamento: CB 0.2.4


This patch improves the Dauntless experience across the board. Combat gets some love with the newly added sword dodge attack and a brand new Shrowdsaber™. We’re further improving on our End of Match sequence by implementing new medals and a revised End of Hunt screen. The patch is rounded out by bug fixes and improvements to Behemoth visuals and collision.

Weapons and Armour — And it. Is! GLORIOUS!

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 almost all progression-blocking bugs but please visit support.playdauntless.com if you are stuck because of a quest that will not complete.

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).

We’re aware that some players are experiencing disconnects and server crashes and actively working on these issues to improve overall stability.

Nayzaga gauntlets may disappear from inventory when upgrading from Tier 6 to Tier 7. Upgrading them to Tier 8 will return them to your inventory.

Users may see progression for Gnasher Armour above Tier 3. This is a menu bug, there is no progression above Tier 3 for Gnasher Armour.

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.

Behemoths may occasionally walk in irregular patterns. Fix this by slaying them.
