Developer Iron Gate says it has taken the step of “reminding the trolls that they need to in actual fact get staggered” when adventurers smack them with one thing heavy. “Not so enjoyable for them, however enjoyable for you!” the studio factors out reassuringly. This should not less than make trolls a bit more manageable – they received’t be shrugging off laborious hits fairly as typically, anyway.
Another good repair on this replace is a change to the way in which your stock is dealt with when you reclaim your tombstone after being unceremoniously killed (probably by a troll). The newest patch makes it so your recovered stock objects will mechanically stack with something you’re at the moment carrying, slightly than requiring free slots for every merchandise picked up.

For instance, if you happen to’re taking part in on a gamepad, you received’t mechanically purchase twice from merchants anymore, and there are some new keyboard and gamepad hints that will help you out within the stock display.
