Weapon Rework

When we added Aether Strikers to Dauntless, we raised the bar for what weapons can be in the Shattered Isles. Every combo is unique and useful. They’re easy to pick up, but take practice to master.

Bottom line, they offer variety and depth.

We want this for all weapons in Dauntless. We are going back to look at the core five weapons to make each one viable, deep, and above all, fun.

This is still in early development, but expect the weapons you know to change for the better with new moves, mechanics, and combos.

Stay tuned for more details.

Update (): We are currently in the early stages of reworking the sword. As the first weapon players use, we want to make sure the sword is fun, satisfying, and varied by adding a new diverse set of combos. We will be tackling these reworks one weapon at a time, so stay tuned to find out what’s next in line.

Update (): We are in the final stages of the sword rework and are currently fine-tuning the new combos and animations. Stay tuned for more details.

Update (): Sword rework was launched on July 30th, 2020 (1.3.3)

The sword rework is complete! We suggest hitting the training grounds and brushing up your skills, Slayers. Future weapon reworks will remain on pause while we focus on other features and tasks. We’ll have more updates in the future.
