New World Into The Void Update Is Really Large — Check Out The Full Patch Notes

New World’s first major con­tent update has arrived, and it’s absolute­ly mas­sive. Along with all the addi­tion­al con­tent, the update address a mul­ti­tude of oth­er adjusts includ­ing changes to fac­tion quests, weapon bal­ances, and plen­ty of fixes.

Ama­zon has added a new weapon as well, the Void Gaunt­let, a new Focus/Intelligence weapon that has a cou­ple of roles. Putting points into the Anni­hi­la­tion mas­tery tree will make this gaunt­let a great close-range weapon. Mean­while, focus­ing on the Decay tree brings the weapon into more of a sup­port role, allow­ing a debuff of ene­mies and bol­ster­ing allies.

Aeter­num’s world does­n’t have a wide vari­ety of ene­mies, which Ama­zon is begin­ning to rem­e­dy with this update. They’ve intro­duced a new ene­my fac­tion, the Varangian Knights, as well as new ene­my types for many of New World’s exist­ing ene­my factions.

The adjust­ments with­in this update are vast, from every­thing in the world to fac­tion quests. Starter zones have been made more dis­tinct from oth­er areas, play­ers in PvP have a high­er chance of find­ing rare items, there are also addi­tion­al fac­tion PvP mis­sions, and run­ning on roads give play­ers a 10% move­ment bonus.

Weapon bal­ances have also arrived, with every weapon in the game being adjust­ed in one way or anoth­er. Ama­zon is look­ing to make some of the less­er used weapon abil­i­ties more viable in the future.

The above is just the sur­face of what was includ­ed in this update. Fans of the MMO will like­ly find some­thing they enjoy in the update, which play­ers need after the rough cou­ple of weeks the game has been through. The game’s econ­o­my was shut down twice after the dis­cov­ery of an item and coin dupli­ca­tion exploit, as well as an invul­ner­a­bil­i­ty bug. Ama­zon has said they are work­ing on improv­ing response time to game-break­ing inci­dents. The stu­dio also recent­ly banned a large amount of cheaters from the game.

New World Into The Void Patch Notes

NEW WEAPON: VOID GAUNTLET

The Void Gaunt­let has man­i­fest­ed in Aeter­num. Manip­u­late the pow­ers of the Void to sup­port your allies and debil­i­tate your ene­mies with this mag­i­cal damage/support hybrid weapon. It’s the first weapon to scale on both Intel­li­gence and Focus, mak­ing it a great pair­ing with the Life Staff and oth­er mag­i­cal weapons. Adven­tur­ers will be able to progress through two weapon mas­tery trees, allow­ing the play­er to manip­u­late Void mag­ic in dif­fer­ent ways:

  • The Anni­hi­la­tion tree focus­es on max­i­miz­ing dam­age at close-range and revolves around Void Blade, a sum­moned blade of cor­ro­sive void energy.
  • The Decay tree offers ranged heal­ing and debuffs and revolves around Orb of Decay, a dual phase pro­jec­tile that can debuff ene­mies and heal allies.

With its arse­nal of buffs and debuffs, the Void Gaunt­let is per­fect for group com­bat and can sig­nif­i­cant­ly bol­ster your allies at the expense of your enemies.

NEW ENEMIES: THE VARANGIAN KNIGHTS

The Varangians are a force of invad­ing knights cur­rent­ly raid­ing South­east­ern Aeter­num. They are led by Lord Com­man­der Attalus, a Gaul with a rep­u­ta­tion for bru­tal­i­ty and a twist­ed sense of humor. Com­man­der Attalus and the Varangians are vas­sals to a pow­er­ful war­lord named Varik “The Ham­mer” Iznov. They have been sent to South­east­ern Aeter­num in search of mag­i­cal arti­facts and arcane lore left behind by the Crim­son Sor­cer­er. Their goal is to secure mag­i­cal weapons that will help their lord in his con­quests. The Varangians are fierce­ly com­pet­i­tive and will vie with one anoth­er to cur­ry favor with Lord Com­man­der Attalus.

Why these fear­some war­riors have arrived is a ques­tion to all. Face off against mul­ti­ple new types of ene­mies, includ­ing the Varangian Hew­er, Varangian Scout, Varangian Knight, and Varangian Archer as you ascer­tain what they are chas­ing in Aeternum.

    • Updat­ed the Singe and Watch it Burn pas­sives to mix up the functionality:
      • Singe went from inflict­ing Burn on crit­i­cal hits to trig­ger­ing Burn on light attacks.
      • Watch it Burn now inflicts burn on crit­i­cal hits from abil­i­ties only.
SPEAR

Our goal was to buff and adjust some of the less­er-used abil­i­ties to make a wider selec­tion of abil­i­ties feel viable.

  • Adjust­ed the dis­tance the play­er moved towards the tar­get when doing a heavy attack. The heavy attack was pulling the user too close pre­vi­ous­ly, result­ing in the Dead­ly Reach pas­sive not being able to trig­ger consistently.
  • Sweep
    • Coup de Grace:
      • Increased dam­age scal­ing from 125% to 150%.

ICE GAUNTLET

Our goal with the Ice Gaunt­let was to tone down the effec­tive­ness of some of the maxed out com­bi­na­tions of abil­i­ties while still main­tain­ing their indi­vid­ual usefulness.

  • Heavy Attack — Increased heavy attack start up and recov­ery time to make it con­sis­tent with oth­er mag­ic weapons heavy attack timing.
  • Fixed an issue where Ice Gaunt­let move­ment while attack­ing was faster than oth­er mag­ic weapons.

    • Fixed an issue where Ice Pylon could con­sume mana but wouldn’t acti­vate on slopes, ter­rain, or off a ledge.
    • Fixed an issue that allowed play­ers to place mul­ti­ple Ice Pylons at a time by dying and being revived.

      • Fixed an issue that allowed ene­mies with this pas­sive to root play­ers stand­ing in their own Ice Storm.
    • Fixed an issue where the Iced Refresh item perk could acti­vate on both down­ing and killing a play­er. Now it trig­gers only on downing.
RAPIER
  • Fixed an issue where Ton­do, Flour­ish, and Fleche had their cooldown begin 1 frame before the hit­box would appear. This result­ed in the abil­i­ties going on cooldown if the attack was inter­rupt­ed ear­ly even if it did not hit.
  • Flur­ry
    • Improved the hom­ing of Flur­ry to fix an issue where sub­se­quent attacks would fre­quent­ly miss or be hard to hit.
    • Over­whelm: Fixed an issue where this upgrade was incor­rect­ly apply­ing sta­mi­na dam­age instead of just block damage.
  • Ton­do

  • Increased Mus­ket base dam­age by 2.5%
  • Fixed an issue where the Mus­ket could not be reloaded after dodge rolling then trig­ger­ing autorun.

ECONOMY, PROGRESSION, & LOOT

  • Fac­tion Change Cooldown has been reduced to 60 days (down from 120).
  • Repair Kit Weight has been reduced from 2.0 to 0.1. We felt 2.0 was too heavy and 0.1 is not very heavy at all. It should be easy to keep a few at the ready in your back-pocket.
  • Added the item Chunk of Con­se­crat­ed Iron to the top rank of the Fac­tion Shop for all fac­tions. Chunks of Con­se­crat­ed Iron are used to craft the Resilient perk for armor items.

ECONOMY

  • All Trad­ing Posts have been linked.
    • Both the list­ing tax and pur­chase tax will be paid to the ter­ri­to­ry where the buy or sell order was listed.
    • Items list­ed in sell orders that expire are returned to the Set­tle­ment from which they were posted.
  • It is no longer pos­si­ble to place items on the trad­ing post for 28 days. The max­i­mum is now 14 days.
  • Reduced Dura­bil­i­ty lost from PvP deaths by 10%.
  • Reduced the quan­ti­ty of hon­ey gained from api­aries by 50% and the amount of milk from cows by 65%. Hon­ey trees are unaf­fect­ed by this change. We made this change because the vol­ume of milk and hon­ey in the world is high­er than our ini­tial esti­mates. The bees and cows are hap­py about this change.
  • Hous­ing tax­es are now due every 7 days instead of every 5 days. No changes to cost, so play­ers will gain 2 days of hous­ing time with­out an increase to their taxes.

PROGRESSION

  • Reduced Ter­ri­to­ry Stand­ing gains from Cook­ing, as they were a bit more gen­er­ous when com­pared to sim­i­lar efforts put into oth­er Craft­ing Trade Skills.
  • Updat­ed a Harplass Home­stead town project to now require 1 mis­sion item instead of 5.
  • Increased the XP require­ments for pro­gress­ing Craft­ing Trade Skills.
    • Once play­ers unlock a new tier of recipes (e.g. Iron > Steel), the XP require­ments to con­tin­ue pro­gress­ing by just craft­ing things at the pre­vi­ous tier will be sig­nif­i­cant­ly dimin­ished. How­ev­er, it should still take the same amount of effort to progress the craft­ing skill if you craft items in the high­est tier you are capa­ble of crafting.

TRADE SKILLS

  • Potion Craft­ing Update
    • We felt that some of the high­er-tier core potions (par­tic­u­lar­ly Health Potions and Mana Potions) were a lit­tle too dif­fi­cult to craft, so we updat­ed the recipes to craft these items and intro­duced a new alchem­i­cal com­po­nent to do so: Alkahest.
    • Alka­h­est is craft­ed by dis­till­ing the mag­i­cal herbs found through­out Aeter­num and serves as a reli­able and potent base for potions going forward.
  • Rare Resources from Gath­er­ing Nodes
    • Thanks to reports in the forums, we found a prob­a­bil­i­ty issue with rare resources from T2/3/4 gath­er­ing nodes and resolved it. Thanks to every­one who con­tributes to mak­ing New World bet­ter with your reports!
    • The short ver­sion is we had a cou­ple of prob­a­bil­i­ties that were mul­ti­ply­ing each oth­er result­ing in a near-zero chance of some already-rare items drop­ping. This com­bined with an issue that could make it next to impos­si­ble for an item to drop if your luck val­ues were too high (not exact­ly how luck should work!), which trans­lat­ed into a “luck sweet spot” that you had to be in to even have a chance (that near-zero chance) at get­ting a drop.
    • With this fix, things like Fae Iron, Void­met­al, Phase­fiber, and Pet­ri­fied Wood should now have an appro­pri­ate chance to drop after you reach a cer­tain Trade Skill level.
      • This chance can be increased by eat­ing the appro­pri­ate Trade Skill when gathering.
      • Trade Skill foods also enables the pos­si­bil­i­ty for these to drop before you would ordi­nar­i­ly be able to receive them based on your Trade Skill lev­el alone, albeit at a very rare rate.
  • Fish­ing
    • Open­ing fish­ing mis­sion now requires 3 wood­louse bait instead of 5.

LOOT/REWARDS

  • Added sev­er­al new named items as spe­cial drops from named Knights found in the world. Knights that are quest tar­gets don’t have spe­cial drops.
  • Added a new style of weapons that drop from the Knight ene­my type.
  • Rook’s Defense Tow­er Shield now has a tow­er shield appear­ance instead of a kite shield appearance.
  • Added a set of weapons designed by the par­tic­i­pants of the Bat­tle for New World event. These weapons are Tier 5 and capa­ble of being Leg­endary if they roll a Gear Score of 600.

NOTABLE BUG FIXES

  • Play­ers can no longer cre­ate buy orders for items that can­not exist.
  • Fixed an issue that was caus­ing bread and cheese baits from being craftable at Kitchens.
  • Play­ers can no longer post sell orders when their stor­age is full.

  • Fixed an issue that could cause play­ers to come across bags of dis­card­ed items not belong­ing to them and couldn’t be cor­rect­ly inter­act­ed with.
  • Fixed an issue that pre­vent­ed Town Project mis­sion items from reset­ting the mission’s state when dropped.
  • Fixed an issue that was caus­ing quick left-mouse but­ton (LMB) taps when reel­ing in a fish to cause the reel­ing to hap­pen auto­mat­i­cal­ly, which could make it very dif­fi­cult to con­trol the line tension.
  • Fixed an issue that was caus­ing high­er-tier com­mon items to drop from cer­tain low lev­el enemies.
  • Fixed an issue that was caus­ing small and large Starmet­al and Orichal­cum veins to give the oppo­site amount of ore when mined.
  • Fixed an issue with a Syn­di­cate armor piece that was caus­ing it to have a much high­er gear score (and by exten­sion, lev­el require­ment) than it should. Please note that this fix will affect exist­ing instances of that item.
  • Fixed an issue that was caus­ing Gold and Plat­inum ingots to require a Smelter one tier high­er than they should.
  • Fixed an issue that was caus­ing some named craft­ed items to present as Leg­endary but craft as Epic. Now they should appro­pri­ate pre­set as Epic.
  • Fixed an issue that was allow­ing Fire Staves to be craft­ed with unre­fined woods.
  • Added new craft mods to the game to account for a small num­ber of perks that could roll on items but were unable to be assigned in crafting.
  • Fixed an issue where some craft mods were drop­ping in game but were unable to be trad­ed on the Trad­ing Post. Sim­i­lar­ly, the Trad­ing Post list­ed some craft mods that were dep­re­cat­ed and not drop­ping – these have also been removed as list-able on the Trad­ing Post.
  • We removed some dep­re­cat­ed and non­func­tion­al craft mods from drop lists. If you pos­sessed one of these items, it has been changed to a dif­fer­ent, func­tion­al item:
    • Starmet­al Arcan­ist’s Charm has been con­vert­ed to Steel Arcan­ist­s’s Charm.
    • Starmet­al Armor­er’s Charm has been con­vert­ed to Steel Armor­er’s Charm.

  • Fixed an issue that caused repair kits to charge a coin fee when used.
  • Fixed an issue that caused cer­tain pieces of Weapon-smithing armors to not drop (Chest/Pants).

UX, UI, & SOCIAL

STREAMER MODE UPDATES

  • Play­ers can now indi­vid­u­al­ly block com­pa­ny invites, group invites, friend invites, coin trans­fer, trade requests, duel requests and chat direct messages.
  • Choos­ing the full “Do Not Dis­turb” will turn of all in-com­ing notifications.
  • Added noti­fi­ca­tions to the send­ing play­er to let them know their invites or requests are block­ing when send­ing to a play­er active­ly using stream­er mode.

SALVAGE AND REPAIR

  • Added a tooltip on dam­aged gear indi­ca­tor explain­ing how to repair.
    • Added the dam­aged gear indi­ca­tor to the inven­to­ry screen when a play­er has dam­aged gear.
  • Added a tuto­r­i­al pop-up to bet­ter explain repair parts.
  • High­light­ed “Repair All” and “Repair” but­tons to make them clearer.

NOTABLE BUGS

  • We now pre­vent play­ers from lock­ing in play­er-to-play­er trades that would result in inven­to­ry overflow.
  • Play­ers near the coin cap are pre­vent­ed from doing trades that would cause one play­er to exceed the cap and there­fore lose coin.
  • Added a quest icon and high­light ani­ma­tions to craft­ing items that are required for quests.
  • Fixed a bug that caused titles to be reset after each game update.
  • Added prop­er icons to a num­ber of items that were miss­ing icons in the Trad­ing Post.
  • Leav­ing a group dur­ing a War caused you to leave the War with­out warn­ing. Play­ers can no longer leave groups dur­ing War, but they can leave the War after con­firm­ing they want to do so.
  • Fixed a bug where some­times the tier of craft­ing and refin­ing sta­tions shown on the map fly­out were wrong.
  • Added a con­fir­ma­tion prompt when attempt­ing to “Take All” from the stor­age shed to avoid annoy­ing acci­den­tal misclicks.
  • We now show an icon to mem­bers of your own fac­tion when they are flagged. This should help play­ers deter­mine if they have near­by rein­force­ments or suf­fi­cient num­bers for a PvP engagement.
  • Upcom­ing War and Inva­sion tooltip on the map will now remain closed and not reap­pear when you open the map if you’ve closed the noti­fi­ca­tion, until the next War or Invasion.
  • If for­eign lan­guage strings are miss­ing, it will no longer show debug strings, it will show the Eng­lish text instead for bet­ter context.
UPDATE: OUR TEAM INCLUDED THESE ADDITIONAL FIXES IN THE INTO THE VOID UPDATE.
  • Fixed an issue where chests in Lazarus Instru­men­tal­i­ty and Gar­den of Gen­e­sis were not prop­er­ly con­tribut­ing to the high water mark system.
  • Fixed issues pre­vent­ing Gear Score 600 Arcana Weapons from being crafted.
  • T5 Weapon Smithing pants now drop from the named ene­my “Entropy” which enables play­ers to com­plete their full set of Weapon Smithing apparel.
  • Increased coin gained from Expe­di­tion boss­es start­ing in Star­stone by 25%, and ramp­ing up to endgame Expe­di­tion boss­es grant­i­ng an addi­tion­al 100%.
