What's Coming in 1.0.3?

With 1.0.2 live on the realm, the team are currently working on two goals: a 1.0.2b update patch that improves some areas of 1.0.2 and the 1.0.3 Content Update that we're estimating will be deployed on December 11 (NZ time). Today's news post covers some of the content we're expecting to release in 1.0.3.

Note that these are not patch notes! They're just the list of features and content on our whiteboard and there will be many other improvements and changes. Not everything in this list will necessarily make it in.
  • New Skill: Barrage - a bow/wand skill.
  • New Uniques: There are several new Unique items, and we're hoping at least one of them will be another Map.
  • New Achievements: There are two coming in 1.0.3.
  • Vendor Recipes: We've added a few more recipes. Some of these are very appropriate for racers.
  • New microtransactions: We have three in the works. I'm hoping the Storm Call one will be ready in time :)
  • Updated combat impact sounds!
  • Passive skills to support degeneration and chaos damage skills.


We'll update with more information and screenshots of the new content as it's available! By the way, I'm sorry that the current Build of the Week is slightly delayed. It was moved to a secondary priority after the big 1.0.2/Supporter Pack push last week. I'll resume working on it shortly.

In other news, we have updated our forum policy.

Are you sure, you didn't accidentally a word out? Or are you really the Storm Call One?
