Long Shade

New Adventure World with max difficulty (Uber 12)

Patch Notes


  • 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 42,500+ power Rank and 10,000+ 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.
  • Rather than normal invaders, when invasions occur in Long Shade Adventure worlds, an Invading Depths Obelisk will drop from the sky—allowing Trovians to summon-forth powerful enemies.
