PTS Update - June 15, 2024

GEARCRAFTING

  • Fixed an issue which would cause stats to be applied in an incorrect order for Crystal gear obtained from the Gearcrafting Profession or from a Gearcrafter's Vault
  • Fixed an issue that would allow Bards to craft Faces with the Physical Damage stat and/or receive such a Face item from Gearcrafter's Vault

PTS Update - June 14, 2024

STYLES

  • 45 new Depths themed styles have been added, 10 for Faces, and 5 for Hats & each Weapon type
  • These styles can be obtained by deconstructing Gear found by "Depths" NPCs in Long Shade & The Depths delve, or unlocked directly using a Super Style Stash

DELVES

  • A new "Under Pressure" debuff--periodically pulsing damage, and reducing Health Regeneration--has been added to Delves
  • This effect first appears at Depth 160 (150 for Challenge delves), and increases in strength as your Depth increases (with periodic "jumps" in power after 10 floors)
  • This effect is not meant to  "stop players in their tracks" at any specific Depth, but it is intended to make "pushing the hardest depths" require more balance between health & damage stats than is currently required

RUNECRAFTING

  • Adjusted the amount of Rune Fragments that drop from the Runecarver and Depths Carver ranks.
  • Rune Anvil:
    • The costs to activate the nodes in the Abyssal, Zephyr, and Pyric runes have been adjusted. Overall the costs have been reduced, but also the costs are now back loaded more to the later nodes. There's a smoother progression through activating the nodes now and more room to experiment early on.
    • Each node that unlocks a rune now describes how it works.

Encrusted Runic Trunk

  • This box can now drop Fish Bones, Ink Bladders, Depths Sand, Depths Cores, Soul of the Depths, and Runic Key Fragments
  • This box can no longer drop the standard 'harvests' from Long Shade difficulty worlds

PTS Update - June 13, 2024

  • Fixed an issue where the UI for the Atlas would have errors when playing in some Languages.
  • Lichenstone, Chunks of Runic Ore, and Deepstone are now the only ores that will show up in "The Depths" Delve biomes
  • Corrected the difficulty # on gemboxes

PTS – Rising Tides – Patch Notes

COMBAT THE RISING TIDE

  • A new enemy faction has invaded Trove! Found only in the most difficult locations, and forged under the immense pressure of The Depths, Denizens from The Depths have risen up and can be found in the new Long Shade/Uber-12* difficulty level, as well as in a new Delve biome! 
  • Saltwater Sam & his crew can be found exploring the Long Shade, and helping combat this new threat! 
  • PARDON OUR DUST: Some assets and content are still ‘placeholder’ and will be arriving on PTS in the days to follow. 

NEW MAX DIFFICULTY

  • A new Adventure World with max difficulty—Long Shade (equivalent to “Uber 12,” see Difficulty Names section below) has been added 
  • To enter, Characters must have 40,000+ Power Rank and 8500+ Light 
  • Unlike most Adventure Worlds, this world only contains a mix of 3 biomes at any given time. 
  • These 3 biomes rotate every 3 hours 
  • The currently active biomes can be seen around the Adventure World selection node in the Atlas (default key: Ctrl + A) 
  • As these biomes rotate, a variety of new Ores, Harvestables, and crafting materials can be found within! 
  • Trovians can only carry a limited amount of these new items, and although that maximum can be increased, they can also be used at Saltwater Sam’s Ship Outpost—found scattered throughout the Long Shade—to craft more valuable, easier-to-carry materials! 
  • Saltwater Sam & his crew can be found having established “Outposts” throughout the Long Shade. Upon their ship, new collections & keys can be crafted! 
  • 5 Star dungeons can be found throughout the Long Shade, creating “Surfaced Depths Caches” (requiring keys to open) upon completion.  

NEW DELVE BIOME

  • For Characters of sufficient strength & swimming skill, “The Depths” await, a flooded Delve biome providing additional challenges and rewards! 
  • “The Depths” is only accessible via Matchmakers, the creation of which Saltwater Sam & his crew have been studying! You can find them at OUTPOSTS in all biomes in Long Shade Difficulty (15) worlds! 
  • Unlike standard Matchmakers, every floor/tier with be “The Depths,” with the new bosses appearing every 3rd floor. Instead of a Shadowy Soul Vault, every 3rd floor will spawn a Runic Depths Vault—which can be opened using keys crafted from Saltwater Sam’s Depth’s Workbench. 
  • The Depths matchmaker will only take you up to 12 floors deep, allowing 4 bosses/vaults total. 

RUNECRAFTING PROFESSION UPGRADE

  • The “Runecrafting” profession has two new tiers, allowing players to reach a new maximum Runecrafting skill of 400 
  • RUNES—a new equippable, auto-consume item—can be crafted using Runecrafting. 
  • Similar to “Shouts” and “Stances” from Martial Arts, “Runes” go in the Auto-Use slot, and are consumed when performing specific actions. In addition to providing temporary buffs, consuming Runes also creates “Rune Fragments,” used to craft more powerful Runes. 
  • Many existing Runecrafting recipes have had their material costs adjusted. 
  • Collections from the Runecrafting Bench are now unlocked directly, rather than via crafted item. 

NEW GEAR TIER

  • Whispers abound of a new tier of gear: Mystic! 
  • Gearcrafters have not yet figured out the secrets of Mystic gear, meaning it cannot yet be crafted directly. Instead, exotic, expensive materials—some from 5 Stars, some from The Depths Delve biome—must be used at the Forge to UPGRADE Crystal 5 gear into Mystic 1! 
  • Trovian’s best Gearcrafters are diligently working along with Mystenta Cull to unlock its secrets! 

DIFFICULTY NAMES

  • “Uber-1” difficulty has been renamed to “Uber”—Uber-2+ difficulty names have all been completely renamed, removing the number and replacing “Uber” with a new word (or pair of words) 
  • The new difficulty progression is as follows (with the first 4 entries mostly unchanged): 
  • (0) Novice 
  • (1) Adept 
  • (2) Elite 
  • (3) Master 
  • (4) Uber 
  • (5) Shade 
  • (6) Fallow 
  • (7) Twilight 
  • (8) Dusk – Previously Uber-5 
  • (9) Nightfall 
  • (10) Moonless Dark 
  • (11) Pure Midnight 
  • (12) Uber Twilight 
  • (13) Mega Dark – Previously Uber-10 
  • (14) Deep Fallow 
  • (15) Long Shade 
  • Some unused Event currencies from old Monthly Events have been cleaned up. 
  • Torches no longer give Mastery. 
  • Fixed an issue where in some cases the place where two biomes meet would not transition correctly to the other Biome. 

Known Bug: 5 stars dungeons may spawn more than 1 Surfaced Depths Cache which is not intended. Only 1 should spawn, at the very end.
