Pact

We are currently testing new ideas for the pact system based on player feedback, so for the next playtest the time it takes to cancel a pact is reduced from 10 to 3 seconds! Please tell us your feedback about this change on Discord or in our in-game survey.

Crafting

Crafting prices for weapons and abilities are now fixed to a specific value instead of getting cheaper with Reputation progress! For the majority of players prices will go down. The Reputation is now needed for unlocking the different blueprint levels.

Activities

The discoverability of activities has changed, a lot of activities will now only display markers when you are close to them.
