Trove - Geode June 26
Patch notes for the Geode update released June 26, 2018. Adding the world of Geode and the adventures within.
- Rowan has been sending out an SOS, and the Trovians have responded! It's time to go visit that mysterious cube that's been showing up on the Atlas.
- Geode is a whole new world with its own Hub. Explore the caves of Geode, meet new Companions, and gather resources to level Crystallogy.
- To the East of the Trove Hub is the giant SS Solidarity that'll carry any Trovian to Geode - just look for the Geode portal on the ground or climb up the ship. Geode can also be accessed via the Atlas.
- Follow the Geode Expertise Thread to get an explanation of all things Geode. It will start automatically the first time you zone in to Geode. All but the first of these Adventures will grant class experience upon completion along with the various item rewards.
- Daily Bonuses do not apply when you're on the planet Geode, except XP day.
Geode - SanctuaryTop ^
- Sunseeker Spire - the Geode Hub is where all the Geodians from the largest Boulder to the smallest Pebble have gathered to resist the Shadows.
- The Geode Hub consists of four levels:
- The 1st level is where portals to the Geode Caves can be found along with a module forge and module workbench.
- The level is Crafter’s Commons. Around the edges of this level can be found:
- The Crystallogy Center, where Sunseeker Lazul teaches about Crystallogy, an ancient Geodian profession
- The Companion Ranch where Sunseeker Gabbro awaits to assist with hatching or training Companions
- The 3rd level is Sunseeker Square, where the Sunseekers make their home. Around the edges of this level can be found:
- The Reliquary Research Center for all Reliquary-related needs
- The Bomber Royale Blastadium for all Bomber Royale rewards
- The 4th level is Sunseeker Landing - access this area to go back to the Trove Hub. The Blue Transit Portal in Crafter’s Commons will fast travel right there!
- Travel between levels using either the Transit Portals or the airavators (built with the new Anti-gravity blocks).
- Three new repeatable Adventures are available from assistant Pebbles found near Lazul, Th’lan, and Gabbro. These Adventures reward class experience and Lesser Crystal Caches for the first 20 completions per day.
- Sunseeker Spire is protected by a massive energy shield that keeps the Shadows out and the Geodians in. The surface outside the shield is too dangerous for Trovians currently. Once the Trovians are better prepared, they will be able to venture beyond the barrier and into the Geodian wilderness.
Geode CavesTop ^
- Travel through 3 new environments to gather resources, upgrade new modules, and meet a new set of creatures.
- Geodians are usually pacifists, so aggressive abilities are not allowed in the caves - instead there are Modules to assist in cave journeys.
- The atmosphere of the caves is intense and difficult for Trovian life – no mounts, wings, or allies can be summoned in the caves.
- Up to 14 players can be found in the same cave at a time. Players cannot be invited in to caves.
- All caves have up to 5 tiers. Travel through airlocks in order to reach deeper tiers of the caves.
- Look for signs in the cave that point to lairs – lairs can contain a jackpot of resources, sometimes including a Bronze Companion Egg!
- All caves contain Gleamstone, Builderite, Ancient Gears, Day Drops, Moonlit Moss, and Wallflowers.
- The Moonglow Grotto is a predominantly purple cave that uniquely contains Moonstone, Quirkstone, Lunarium, Dream Dew, Acrobat Bark, and Queen Trumpets.
- The Sunken Sunvault is a predominantly orange cave that uniquely contains Blazine, Sparkzite, Everlight, Sun Sap, Cave Birds, and Fireheart Flowers.
- The Verdant Veins is a predominantly green cave that uniquely contains Geminite, Chronozine, Mightstone, Cave Kelp, Cogwine, and Builder’s Blossoms.
- Watch out for hazards - the caves contain explosive plants, fire flowers which will drain N-charge, and creatures.
- Creatures can be injured, hungry, cold, or overburdened with treasure. Solve their problems to receive crystals or Lesser Crystal Caches!
- Lesser Crystal Caches can contain crystals or (rarely) Crystal Pinatas, Drillbits, or Bronze Companion Eggs.
- Drillbits can be used to craft the Bovine Buildmaster or Rocket Drill mounts.
- Reliquaries are resource caches which can be equipped while exploring the Geode caves to charge them up.
- Reliquaries are charged up by feeding, healing, and comforting creatures in the caves.
- After a Reliquary is fully charged, take it to the Reliquary Cracker in the Geode Hub to open it!
- Reliquaries can have their chances of an uncommon or rare result improved through the use of Lodestars.
- Most Reliquaries will take 6 hours to open, while rare Reliquaries will take 2 hours.
- Accelerite can be applied to speed up Reliquary opening - each Accelerite consumed will reduce the time by 2 hours.
- Additional Reliquary slots can be obtained using Space Expanders.
- Modules are a new type of equipment that will assist progress through the Geode Caves.
- There are 8 modules, and all can be leveled 10 times. Leveled modules are more efficient in even the early cave tiers.
- The Geodian Acclimation System (GAS) controls how long the player can survive in the caves. Upgrading it allows for longer, deeper cave dives. When you're out of GAS, you're out!
- N-Charge powers the other modules - upgrade it to stay stronger longer.
- The Omni-Tool allows the player to harvest Geodian blocks and interact with cave creatures. Upgrade it to mine faster or further.
- The Climbing Claw allows the player to grapple to any location within range or to stun cave creatures. Upgrade it to travel faster or further and stun stronger creatures.
- Rocket Boots allow the player to hover or travel upwards to reach resources that might otherwise be difficult.
- The Thumper makes crystals and ore visible that would otherwise be hidden.
- Barrier Generator protects against fire flowers and other hazards.
- Path Painter allows for marking paths. While staying on a marked path, movement speed is increased.
- Companions are cave creatures who've been raised to assist the player in the caves.
- There are 8 types of companions with 3 different rarity tiers.
- All Companions grant various benefits when taken on journeys in to the Geode Caves.
- Companions can be hatched from Bronze, Silver, or Gold Companion Eggs. Gold Companion Eggs are always a rare result, while Silver Companion Eggs are always an uncommon or rare.
- Companion Eggs can be hatched in the Egg Incubator found in the Geode Hub near Gabbro.
- Bronze Companion Eggs can have their chances of an uncommon or rare result improved through the use of Lodestars.
- Companion Eggs will take some time to hatch - Bronze Companion Eggs will hatch in 10 hours, while Silver and Gold Companion Eggs hatch in 2 hours.
- Accelerite can be applied to speed up Egg hatching - each Accelerite consumed will reduce the time by 2 hours.
- Companions can be trained in the Companion Trainer found next to the Incubator. Training Companions will add new benefits or increase existing ones.
- Any unwanted Companions (you monster) can be sent to find a much better, actually loving home by using the Forever Home Finder near the Egg Incubator.
- Crystallogy is a new profession found in the Geode Hub.
- Gain resources while in the Geode Caves in order to level up this profession and craft all the recipes.
- This profession has recipes for items to assist cave travel in various ways, including assisting cave creatures, tomes for Geodian resources, costumes, and even Space Expanders to add additional reliquary or incubator slots.
- New VFX Blocks can be crafted from this profession. Add a range of vfx to a cornerstone or club world with these blocks.
- New Anti-gravity blocks can also be crafted from this profession. Add an airavator to a cornerstone or club world with these new blocks!
- A new Geode Biome workbench has been added to the Crystallogy Center. Recipe unlockers for the recipes on this workbench can be crafted via Crystallogy.
Geode MasteryTop ^
- Geode has a new type of Mastery.
- Acquiring items from the Geode Caves, leveling Crystallogy, or leveling Modules will all grant Geode Mastery. (These all continue to also grant Trove Mastery.)
- Geode Mastery contains rewards to assist progress through the Geode caves – earn metamatter to level Modules, Eggs to earn new Companions, and Space Expanders to unlock additional reliquary or incubator slots.

Bomber RoyaleTop ^
- Bomber Royale is a new competitive combat mode that can be accessed via a top level menu item – it’s literally the bomb.
- Up to 20 players can join in a Bomber Royale match, although the match will start 1 minute after 15 players are queued.
- Players will start on a glass platform that deconstructs, eventually dropping them to the actual map.
- Bomber Royale maps are completely destructible and will randomly deconstruct themselves over time. The goal is to be the last player standing - literally!
- Bomber Royale is completely independent of class abilities - every player starts equipped with Rubber Bombs and a Climbing Claw. All players also have the same health and energy amounts.
- Rubber Bombs are a thrown explosive that bounce off the first surface they hit and explode on the second surface. They consume energy when thrown and will damage other players.
- The Climbing Claw is a grappling hook that pulls the player to the target location.
- Several power ups are available across the map:
- Rubber Bomb power ups decrease the energy cost of throwing a Rubber Bomb
- Climbing Claw power ups decrease the cooldown of the Climbing Claw ability
- Health power ups heal the player when triggered - but also slow them down! Only one can be held at a time.
- Lava Bomb power ups change the next 3 Rubber Bombs thrown to Lava Bombs - these will turn the area in to lava, including any water
- Sticky Bomb power ups grant the Sticky Bomb on the first pick up, and reduce the cooldown on subsequent gains. The Sticky Bomb does not bounce - it lands in one spot and explodes 5 seconds later.
- Bomb Jump power up grants the use of the Bomb Jump ability. Bomb Jump gives the player a little escape ability - use it to quickly blast out of the way or knock back an opponent.
- The last 10 players standing will receive the following rewards:
- 3 coins to the last player standing
- 2 coins to the last 2-5 players standing
- 1 coin to the last 6-10 players standing
- The first player to kill an opponent will also receive a coin.
- Coins can be redeemed for rewards at the Bomber Royale Merchant in the Geode Hub.
