Tempest dungeon broken

Aenwyn

Thank you, we’re actively working on figuring this one out!



On purpose? Or just forgot

Aenwyn

I looked into this and it’s as intended currently, as currently we don’t want to make magic weapons dependent on crits. However, it’s good feedback and has opened internal discussion!



Turkey World Boss stopped Spawning

Luxendra

There’s currently an issue with Turkulon spawning but the team is working hard on getting a fix and releasing it asap. Once it’s ready, we’ll announce it in the Official News section.



The journal is broken

Aenwyn

This is a known issue we’re currently working on a fix:

  • The Journal occasionally becomes unaccessible after completing the quest ‘Head of the Snake’. Completing this quest should resolve the issue.

Unannounced Armor Appearance Changes

Aenwyn

At this time I do not think so, since there is the Voidbent armor, but that’s a good thought and I’ll make sure it’s reviewed. :slight_smile:



Fresh Servers Merges When?

Luxendra

Hey there, we’re aware of players wanting merges for Fresh Start Worlds and while we have communicated this feedback to the team, we do not currently have any plans to merge Fresh Start Worlds.

Should that change, we will communicate it in the Official News category so that players are informed.



Updates that are more than 1 month old on the PTR and did not go live and were not mentioned in the Patch Notes

Aenwyn

@Azereon Not an intentional jebait I swear hahah. They just already exist! :wink:

@SonGeralt I appreciate your feedback and think you have some great ideas! I think it’s just missing an understanding that game developement takes time and we’ve come a long way since launch and we’re continuing to work at light speed to provide QOL updates, fixes to issues, new content, etc! In the meantime, we are working on other ways to mitigate some of these issues, including Server Merges.



Open letter to New World Devs

Luxendra

At this time, we have not been made aware of any plans to merge Fresh Start Worlds, only Legacy worlds. Should that change, we’ll communicate it in the Official News category.



Unannounced Armor Appearance Changes

Aenwyn

Hello! The Varangian armor was intended, as that had the incorrect visual. I’m looking into the Sorcerer Hunter armor, though!



Updates that are more than 1 month old on the PTR and did not go live and were not mentioned in the Patch Notes

I understand your concern when it comes to communicating timelines and we do publish Roadmaps, but when it comes to PTR, it’s meant to be a way to test new and upcoming features/fixes. It would be nearly impossible for us to track when each of those changes are going to be moved into the live game now that we have the PTR constantly open, mostly because it’s ever-evolving. The reality is that it’s a cycle, with layers of dependency. We do our best to provide information as soon as we are certain in order to not incorrectly promise timelines.

One example would be the newly introduced potions in PTR. If we came out with our initial timeline, it would now be incorrect. Thus, we do not promise timelines until it’s cemented in the patch and patch notes are up.

That said, we are always considering ways to better our communication strategies, especially when replying to one thread on a topic doesn’t necessarily mean everyone is aware of what we’ve said (though you guys are pretty great about spreading the message).

On the topic of feedback, it’s important to note feedback will not always directly impact how something is implemented in game, but we always review and consider it. There are times when we think it’s great feedback, but not the direction we want to move forward with. Other times, it’s something we may consider changing in the future but have decided to move forward with how it’s currently implemented.

The Reflexive potions are a great example of this - we agreed with the feedback and are considering the best option moving forward.

Another example where we did not act on the feedback would be the indication that the Greatsword was simply too great in size. We appreciated the feedback and understood where players were coming from, but we decided to move forward with our decision for a multitude of reasons. Some as simple as standing strong with our design and others such as how much time and effort it would take to make a simple size change if that really was the route we were to take.

I agree there are more opportunities for us to have these discussions and be transparent. For example, I know it’s not transparent that when I’m not responding, I’m spending my time advocating for and discussing internally the bug reports, feedback, etc that you share among many others things. But overall we are always discussing how to better engage with constructive feedback and discussions! :saluting_face:



Music Sheet has not been applied to my character

Aenwyn

You might be able to reach out directly to our support team for that, but I’m unsure if they’re able to individually fix this issue: Contact Us | Amazon Games



Didn't Receive Make Good Crate

Aenwyn

Thanks for your patience! We should be following up on this soon. We wanted to thoroughly review feedback and impact (plus we had a few days to enjoy some Turkey…). :slight_smile:

Also, don’t worry! We’re aware of who has and hasn’t received anything.



Problem in decoration mode - table + place sitting

Aenwyn

Thank you, we’re looking into this!



Music Sheet has not been applied to my character

Aenwyn

Unfortunately we haven’t been able to reproduce this issue and are still looking into it. :frowning:



Updates that are more than 1 month old on the PTR and did not go live and were not mentioned in the Patch Notes

Aenwyn

Unfortunately until we release the patch notes, it’s difficult to say exactly when each fix/update will be implemented, but know that we are actively working on pushing these from PTR to the live game ASAP.
