Gardening
  • Gardening now goes to 300 (Horticulturist)!
  • The Gardening bench has been renamed to the Antiquated Gardening Bench. A new Gardening Bench can now be crafted at the builders crafting bench.
  • The requirements for the original gardening recipes have also been shuffled.
  • Unripe Compost Heap has been renamed to Unripe Fertilizer Heap to reduce confusion.
  • New types of plants have been added to Gardening at Gardener (150) level and above:
  • Vegetables - Vegetable plants like Qubbage, Unicorn Chard, and Totter Tates contain vegetables when harvested.
  • Vegetables can be washed at the Vegetable Sink to become food.
  • Prized decorative vegetables or bomb skins can be found rarely when harvesting Vegetables. These decorative vegetables can also be crafted at the Harvesting Bench.
  • Alchemy Plants - Alchemy plants contain crafting materials when harvested.
  • Alchemy plant recipes can be found in Bobble Pods and when opening compost heaps.
  • Alchemy plant seeds can be crafted with gardening (once learnt) or found rarely when throwing Bobble pods or opening compost heaps.
  • Alchemy plant seeds can be composted for a fraction of the materials that would be gained from harvesting the plant.
  • Alchemy plant recipes can be composted back in to a compost heap.
  • Bobble Pods can rarely be found when breaking grass or harvesting Vegetables and Alchemy Plants. Bobble Pods are a new kind of pinata that, when thrown, grow in to a blastflower - pop them to receive rewards like Alchemy Plant recipes, seeds, and Golden Watering Cans.
  • A Ridable Bobble Pod mount can rarely drop for the thrower of a Bobble Pod. This 0 mastery mount is immobile, because no one wants to reenact Day of the Triffids.
  • These new Vegetable and Alchemy plants require watering and time to grow.
  • Most plants require 4 hours to sprout before they can be watered.
  • Once sprouted, a plant can be watered.
  • Once fully watered, a plant can be harvested.
  • Once harvested or watered, a plant cannot be watered again until it's ready. Depending on the plant, this may be 1, 2, or 3 days later. Regardless of what time they were planted, they will always become ready at 11 AM PT.
  • Different plants require different amounts of water before becoming harvestable - for example, Corn on the Qube plants require 4 units of water, while Qumato plants require 1 unit of water.
  • There are also different kinds of watering cans:
  • Watering Can - this consumable watering can grants 1 unit of water to nearby plants. Craftable at Gardener (150) Skill.
  • Everlasting Watering Can - this watering can is not consumable and grants 1 unit of water to nearby plants. This watering can also waters twice as fast. Craftable at Horticulturist (300) Skill.
  • Golden Watering Can - this consumable watering can completely fills the watering requirements for nearby plants, and can be used on plants which have already been watered with a Watering Can or Everlasting Watering Can. Can be found inside Bobble Pods and some Compost Heaps.
  • Kahramet, Warden of the Fields has been attracted to Trove by the new growth in gardening. This new dragon can be crafted at the Dragon Crucible using Blossoming Dragon Egg fragments. She can also be obtained using a dragon effigy or through a golden egg inside of greater dragon caches.
  • Blossoming Dragon Egg fragments can be found inside of Bobble Pods. They can also be composted for Quality Organic Refuse.
  • Moonlight bulbs can now be found all over Trove and Geode. These bulbs concentrate the power of the moon goddess into a harvestable resource. But watch out, the moon goddess doesn't take kindly to these falling into the hands of Trovians and will remove them from your bags when you go offline for more than an hour.


Harvesting Bench
  • The Harvesting Bench can be crafted at the Gardener (150) Skill level of Gardening from the Gardening Bench or the Builder's Crafting Bench.
  • Gardener (150) Skill is required to interact with the Harvesting Bench.
  • The Harvesting Bench can be used to craft various kinds of Compost, Ally Habitats, Mounts, Decorative Plants, Farm Decorations, VFX Blocks, and Frameworks.
  • Rich Fertilizer, Fertile Ash, and Plasmic Solution are also craftable at the Harvesting Bench.
  • Compost Heaps from the Harvesting Bench are a great way to get Concentrated Compost, Moonlight Temper, and Cookie Musk.
  • Ally Habitats are a way to acquire new allies - each home can attract a normal or rare version of the specific ally associated with that home. Ally Habitats require Horticulturist (300) to craft and to harvest.
  • Flowerbed Faerie Habitat - attracts Flowerbed Faerie and (rarely) Flowerbed Countess
  • Purple Glowbug Habitat - attracts Purple Glowfly and (rarely) Brilliant Glowfly

  • The Ally Habitats believe sharing is caring - the ally will be available for anyone with the Horticulturist skill who visits the club. If the rare ally chooses to visit, that will also be available for every visitor with Horticulturist skill.


Compost
  • The Compost Bin can be crafted at the Gardener (150) Skill level of Gardening from the Gardening Bench or the Builder's Crafting Bench.

  • Once a piece of food has been equipped, it cannot be unequipped - that's just gross!
  • There are rumours that this is only the first bite of food to whet the appetite and give a taste of what's to come - sweeter treats may be coming in a future update. The food abides.


Badges

Hey folks,

We're updating the PC version of Trove 8 AM PT (3 PM UTC) on June 17, 2019 to make improvements to the Leaderboard and Star Bar reward structures. Full patch notes are located here: Going Green Hotfix 2

Downtime may last up to an hour, but is likely to be shorter than that. Any updates to this estimate will be posted on the forums.

We are aware that this downtime is on a different day than our normal releases and may disrupt Shadow Tower groups trying to race the clock for that Ultra DOTM clear. However, we are excited to introduce these leaderboard changes and want to ensure they become available as soon as possible after the weekly reset. Thank you for your patience.

Hey folks,

Earlier today at approximately 22:45 UTC (3:45 PM PT), some of the worlds on PC granted players who logged in to them 266 Trove Mastery Points. These mastery points were temporary and tied to the world that granted them. The Mastery Points were lost when the player left the affected world and the Mastery leaderboard now reflects the correct Mastery Point values. We worked quickly to remove the affected worlds, but around 2,000 players received the temporary mastery points.

Unfortunately, if the temporary points were enough to grant an affected player a new Trove Mastery Rank, the player would retain the new rank. We have taken action and players who reached a Mastery level that is not yet attainable have been set back down to a normal level. All other affected players will keep the extra mastery level.

Please be aware that if your character is affected by this, your mastery bar in the character sheet will reflect the additional mastery points you actually need to obtain to reach the next level. For example, if you would normally need 300 points to obtain the next level, you might see something like 25/566 Trove Mastery Points instead of 25/300.

We're definitely looking for no frills video here. How one plays when just playing the game is very different from how one interacts with the game when trying to entertain an audience. If you can help with basic recordings of normal play sessions (not taken when streaming) that would be awesome. If not, no worries, we're still open to additional volunteers.

Greetings Trovians!

The gamigo group and Trove team are looking for some volunteers to capture video of play sessions that will be used in a Game study.

What we're looking for:
  • Approximately 8 volunteers who will be able to record 3 play sessions between 20-30 minutes each. No need for editing, voice over, or adding music; just a literal recording of normal play sessions of up to half an hour each.
  • Create the videos on any site that can be accessible to the general public (nothing locked behind a required login). YouTube has worked well for us, so that is the most likely place to place your videos.
  • You can absolutely take part in this if you play on consoles, as long as you can share links with us to the video of your play sessions.
  • After we've received the videos from our volunteers, we'll also ask for a Skype account name so the professor handling the study will be able to reach out to you with some follow up questions.

We appreciate anyone who is able to take part in the study. Results will be made public once published, but we don't have an estimate for when that will be yet, since the study is just getting started.

Thanks!

The study is being handled by a professor external from gamigo directly, but working in collaboration with us. The videos are of normal play sessions, so once we have those, the professor will be able to form specific questions to dig into the way people play. I'll see what additional detail we're able to share in these early stages, but if we tell people we're looking for a specific thing it'll be hard to get meaningful data based on how that would potentially bias sessions.

No specific deadline yet, but sooner is better. We already have a few people who have supplied us with videos, but we're looking for more data to dig into.

Update 1 - 7:35AM PST (5:35 PM UTC) - The issue has cleared up and you should be able to login as normal again.


Hey folks,

We're seeing an issue preventing players from accessing several gamigo US games, including Trove. We're investigating this now and will post regular updates on our progress here.

Thanks very much.

  • A Fierce Gem can never reroll in to the Magic Damage stat, and an Arcane Gem can never reroll in to the Physical Damage stat.
  • Gems can no longer crack while leveling. Because of this, Jade Clovers can no longer be used while leveling gems. Jade Clovers can still be converted in to Glistening Horseshoes on the Adventurer’s Crafting Bench.

  • The contents of lesser Gem Boxes have changed, and they have been renamed to match their source world rather than their previous default rarity.

  • The Empowered Cosmic Gem Socket unlocks at level 25. The Lesser Cosmic Gem Sockets unlock at level 27 and 30.
  • 4 new abilities have been introduced for Empowered Cosmic Gems:
    • Berserk Battler – Damaging enemies causes a frenzied state, adding a small increase to attack speed and Light. Continued damage to enemies extends the frenzied state until it causes a berserk state, greatly increasing attack speed and Light.
    • Flower Power – Taking damage has a chance to spawn a blast flower which will decay and explode, damaging nearby enemies.
    • Empyrean Barrier – Periodically applies a shield that reduces incoming damage. When the shield is destroyed it explodes, damaging nearby enemies.

Crystal Rarity
  • Crystal Hats, Faces, and Weapons can now drop from lair and dungeon chests in Geode Topside Adventure Worlds.

  • Stellar and Crystal equipment return pearls when deconstructed.
  • Crystal equipment drops with a new Crystal style for each equipment slot.
  • Crystal Weapons and Faces can drop with Magic Find in the 3rd Stat slot.

The 18th was our target date, but we didn't want to put that day out there until we were 100% positive we'd make it. So, we definitely got word out later than normal for an update this size, but with the holidays coming up it was going to end up being tricky in any case.

Glad you're able to get in and play during your break. We'll mostly be off next week as well (I'll still be around) so some of the people you run 5 star dungeons with might just be devs.

  • 4 new abilities have been introduced for Empowered Cosmic Gems:
    • Berserk Battler – Damaging enemies causes a frenzied state, adding a small increase to attack speed and Light. Continued damage to enemies extends the frenzied state until it causes a berserk state, greatly increasing attack speed and Light.

Hey folks,

Please be aware that we are currently moving offices, so the dev team will not be able to respond as quickly to issues on PTS as we usually try to do. We didn't want to hold back PTS any longer, but we likely will not be able to patch for several days. Once we're back from the move, we'll also take a look at addressing an issue preventing Mac users from accessing PTS. Please bear with us in the meantime as you explore the Crystal Combat Update.

Geode Topside Adventure Worlds
  • 3 new worlds can be found on the Atlas linked to the Geode Hub – a U8, U9 and U10 version of the Geode Topside Worlds.
  • The Geode Topside Worlds have 3 biomes – the Cerise Sandsea, Hollow Dunes, and Weathered Wasteland.
  • 1-star and 5-star dungeons can be found throughout these biomes.
  • Outposts can also be found throughout the biomes – these offer several Outpost Adventures and can be used to loot collect unwanted items.
  • Cornerstones cannot be summoned in the Geode Topside Adventure Worlds.
  • Veridium and Nitro-Glitterine ore can be found scattered throughout the Geode Topside. Nitro-Glitterine is rarer than Veridium.
  • The Geode Topside is affected by Daily Bonuses.
  • Recipes have been added to the Crystallogy workbench that require materials from the Geode Topside.
    • PTS Note: These costs for these recipes are not final, and will see some further review before the update goes out.
5-Star Dungeons
  • 5 Star Dungeons are a new type of dungeon found exclusively in Geode Topside Adventure Worlds.
  • Enter the dungeon and find the Dark Heart within – interact with it to spawn Cursed Skulls and bosses.
  • Defeat all the Cursed Skulls and bosses within the time limit to get an extra reward!
Light and Dark
  • 2 new stats have been introduced – Light and Darkness.
  • Light can be found on Crystal Equipment and Cosmic Gems. Light cannot be removed from these items.
  • Darkness is only found on monsters inhabiting the Geode Topside Adventure Worlds. Light is required to overcome their Darkness and damage them.
Gems
  • All new lesser gems of Shadow Rarity and above now have stats consistent with either Fierce or Arcane Gems. Fierce Gems always grant Physical Damage, while Arcane Gems always grant Magical Damage.
  • A Fierce Gem can never reroll in to the Magic Damage stat, and an Arcane Gem can never reroll in to the Physical Damage stat.
  • Gems can no longer crack while leveling. Because of this, Jade Clovers can no longer be used while leveling gems. Jade Clovers can still be converted in to Glistening Horseshoes on the Adventurer’s Crafting Bench.
  • Gems now have a higher chance to both naturally level up and double level up while leveling.
Cosmic Gems
  • A new type of gem has appeared – Cosmic Gems!

Yes? I mean, totally your call. You'll get double the Credits for the purchase. If you just see the normal Credits after making a purchase, hop through a portal and the rest will pop up. It's rare that this should be necessary, but just in case.

Bomber Royale Changes
  • Kill credit is now granted to the most recent player to damage someone if they die from environmental damage or falling within 15 seconds.
  • Bomber Royale experience gain has been tuned to award more active, aggressive play. Some experience is now granted based on damage done to other players, and the amount of experience granted for just staying alive has been reduced. Experience for each kill has also been reduced since it is now easier to get credit for kills on players who die from lava or falling. Average experience gain may be lower, but very aggressive and accurate players will be more rewarded.
  • The Bomber Royale scoreboard will now show how much damage has been dealt by each player (not including lava bombs).
  • Damage Done (not including lava) in Bomber Royale is now also tracked in /metrics.
  • In Bomber Royale, there is now an option to spectate the rest of the match. Which living player is being watched can be swapped at any time, and if the current target dies it will automatically swap.
  • Fixed a rare issue that could join players to the same team, preventing them from damaging each other.
  • (PS4 and Xbox only) The Bomber Royale scoreboard no longer prevents opening chat or the character sheet.

If a president is AWOL and there is no one in a rank with the PresidentialCandidate permission who is also not AWOL, then that club will continue to be run by the AWOL president. Note that if a president leaves a club, all bets are off and the server will still pick someone to replace them, even if there is no one in a rank with the PresidentialCandidate permission.
  • The Club Adventure “Complete PVP Arena Matches” has been replaced by a new Adventure to throw 100 Bombs in Bomber Royale.
  • The Club Adventure “Complete Timed Challenges” has had its required count changed from 10 to 3.

  • Kill credit is now granted to the most recent player to damage someone if they die from environmental damage or falling within 15 seconds.
  • Bomber Royale experience gain has been tuned to award more active, aggressive play. Some experience is now granted based on damage done to other players, and the amount of experience granted for just staying alive has been reduced. Experience for each kill has also been reduced since it is now easier to get credit for kills on players who die from lava or falling. Average experience gain may be lower, but very aggressive and accurate players will be more rewarded.
  • The Bomber Royale scoreboard will now show how much damage has been dealt by each player (not including lava bombs).
  • Damage Done (not including lava) in Bomber Royale is now also tracked in /metrics.
  • In Bomber Royale, there is now an option to spectate the rest of the match. Which living player is being watched can be swapped at any time, and if the current target dies it will automatically swap.
  • Fixed a rare issue that could join players to the same team, preventing them from damaging each other.

Club and Adventure Changes
  • Clubs can now be reordered in the Club List.
  • Primary Clubs will always use channel c1. The other clubs will follow the same order as the Club List.
  • An X button has been added to the Liked Worlds UI, allowing players to remove clubs from the Liked Club World list even if the Homeworld Heart has been removed.
  • Clubs ranks now have a PresidentialCandidate permission, and only players in ranks with this permission will be considered to replace an AWOL president. If a president is AWOL and there is no one in a rank with the PresidentialCandidate permission who is also not AWOL, then that club will continue to be run by the AWOL president. Note that if a president leaves a club, all bets are off and the server will still pick someone to replace them, even if there is no one in a rank with the PresidentialCandidate permission.
  • The Club Adventure “Complete PVP Arena Matches” has been replaced by a new Adventure to throw 100 Bombs in Bomber Royale.
  • The Club Adventure “Complete Timed Challenges” has had its required count changed from 10 to 3.
  • The Club Adventures "Collect a Chaos Chest" and "Collect Chaos Chests" will no longer grant credit for Chaos Chests acquired from deconstructing other items.
  • An /adventurerewards command has been added to show the number of rewards available for various adventure types.
  • Adventures can no longer be accepted if they will not grant any rewards. (Note that club XP is considered a reward, so club adventures can be accepted past the 220 limit.)

Dragons
  • Two new dragons have been added to Trove!
  • Typhandir, the Sundered Shield can be obtained by collecting Egg fragments from Dark Chaos Vaults and then crafting the egg at the Dragon Crucible in the Hub.
    • Typhandir, the Sundered Shield is also available through Golden Dragon Effigies.
    • Dark Chaos Vaults an now be crafted at the Chaos Core Crafter Workbench.
  • Yzzuli of the Honeybreeze can be obtained by collecting Egg fragments from bee enemies and then crafting the egg at the Dragon Crucible in the Hub.
  • The Dormant Lorekeeper Dragon Egg now deconstructs into 5 Lorekeeper Dragon Egg Fragments as opposed to 18 Xinzaya's Tokens.

Store
  • Hearty Party Pack 1 has arrived! Thanks to the charitable contributions made by players during Extra Life 2017, this pack contains an un-bee-lievable dragon, Yzzuli of the Honeybreeze, along with 2 costumes, 3 mounts, 1 dancepad, 8 allies, and 9 styles.
    • Trion Worlds, Inc. will donate $5,000 for every 700 units sold of Trove Hearty Party Pack 1, up to a maximum amount of US$20,000, to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization located at 205 W 700 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84101 ). Donations will be made for all eligible packs sold worldwide (excluding SC, AL, IL, and MA) between 12:00 AM PDT, August 7, 2018 through 11:59 pm PDT, September 4, 2018. This contribution is not tax deductible.
  • A disclaimer has been added during purchases of packs to remind players that collectibles are automatically unlocked on the purchasing account, and accounts that have already purchased included items will not receive duplicates.

Ice Sage Changes
  • The Ice Sage DPS has been increased to be more in line with the other classes in Trove. The Ice Sage's control over multiple enemies has also been improved and expanded. We have switched around the ultimate ability, 'The Big Chill' to make it more of the Ice Sage's normal kit rotation. We felt the ability to freeze muliple targets is unique to the Ice Sage, is a lot of fun and should be available for use more frequently.
  • Originally, Frozen Ward was designed to behave like a panic button for when things were not looking good for the Ice Sage. Because the shield lasted indefinitely and provided a DPS increase, it made this ability more of a requirement for the class (due to it lacking DPS overall) and less of a second chance at life.
  • While we have moved, 'The Big Chill' to the Ability1 button, we overhauled the way Frozen Ward works, moved it to Ability2 and have made this the class ultimate.
  • The Empowered Gem for the Ice Sage, "Pain Freeze" no longer replaces, 'Ice Crash' but now replaces the Basic Attack for the Ice Sage. We felt the way Pain Freeze was originally implemented was a bit too uncontrollable or RNG and didn't really support the existing kit or change the overall class gameplay in a way we were happy with, so it's been changed. The changes to Pain Freeze should help round out the class and support the existing gameplay without making the class gem a "must have" for the class.
  • Basic Attack
    • The damage of Basic Attack has been increased by 100% to a coefficient of 2.0
    • Projectile size increased by 100% (from 0.25 to 0.50 block size)
  • Ice Crash
    • The damage of Ice Crash has been increased by 17% to a coefficient of 4.5
    • Energy cost reduced from 20 to 15
    • Ice Crash now chills enemies like Basic Attack, slowing their movement speed for 3.5 seconds
    • Ice Crash now attempts to freeze lava blocks, creating water in the process
  • The Big Chill
    • The Big Chill has been moved to Ability1 and has been replaced by, "Frozen Ward" as the Ice Sage ultimate ability
    • Enemies frozen no longer delay damage but take damage immediately
    • The Big Chill now lasts 3.5 seconds
    • The Big Chill costs 40 energy
    • The Big Chill now has a 7s cooldown

    • Initial damage has a coefficient of 3.0
    • DoT damage has a coefficient of 0.66
    • The Big Chill has a critical coefficient of 0.5
  • Frozen Ward
    • Frozen Ward has been moved to Ability2 as the Ice Sage ultimate ability, replacing, "The Big Chill"

    • Pain Freeze basic attack chills enemies, slowing their movement speed. (Like the Ice Sage passive, "Coldhearted")
    • Pain Freeze allows Ice Sages to walk across ice without slipping. (Like the Ice Sage passive, "Coldhearted")
    • Targets hit three times with Basic Attack while "Pain Freeze" is equipped explode taking additional damage with a coefficient of 4.5
    • The first hit from Basic Attack now freezes targets for 1s
  • Ice Sage Sub-class Ability
    • All tiers of the Ice Sage sub-class shield now include:
      • Incoming damage reduced by 10% while active
      • Movement speed has been increased by +20

      • Attack Speed is increased 20%

Updates
  • Fixed an issue where players could get stuck on log in with repeated “Failed to Join Session” errors
  • Fixed issues with various sound effects failing to play
  • The drop rate of mounts from Shadow Tower Vaults have been increased. In addition, the drop rate increases based on Shadow Tower difficulty level. Compared to Normal mode, the drop rates double on Hard mode and are increased 10x on Ultra mode.
  • (PS4 Only) Fixed one of the most common PS4 crashes.
  • (PC Only) TMOD and override files can peacefully co-exist once more. This should resolve mods failing to load for some players.

Update - We've rolled out a hotfix to every version of Trove that has removed the unintended Power Rank limit. Everyone will now be able to take part in the joy of time travel - safety not guaranteed. If you've used the portals received from the quest already you will be able to jump into any portal opened by another player.

If you don't spot an open portal you can also pick them up on the Marketplace or from a friend as they are tradable. Feel free to submit ticket for help as well and the support team will get you sorted out as soon as possible.

Hey all,

The 10k Power Rank requirement for Saminator quest 2 was not intentional and we're investigating our options for addressing it now. If you're attempting to access the portal to the future and are kicked back to the normal game world this is why.

We'll post updates regular while we're looking into it.

Thanks

Blocky Bonus
  • Starting with this hotfix on PC and Xbox One (and by October 4th for PlayStation 4) there's a great new mount, Sabaddar, Summer’s Rapture (pictured above), available in the Store - just log in and claim it from the Deals tab.
    • Please note this does require PlayStation Plus or Xbox Gold Live on their respective platforms.
  • This free bonus item will be available for only a few weeks, so don't miss out!

Gameplay Improvements
  • Due to player feedback, the Shadow Tower difficulties have been reevaluated and the health and damage on Normal and Hard modes have been reduced to allow a smoother transition between floors.
  • The required Power Rank to enter the Lobby along with floors 1 and 2 on Normal Mode has been reduced from 400 PR to 250 PR. It is not advisable for characters at 250 PR to attempt to solo the Shadow Tower on Normal, so bring a few friends!
  • In the Shadow Tower Lobby there are now 5 portals for each difficulty to help ease congestion
  • Entering the Sky Realm and Shadow Tower now corresponds correctly with the listed Power Rank requirement
  • Due to player feedback, Binding Darkness no longer drops from Empowered Gem Boxes, and the rates of Gems and Class Gem Key Fragments are boosted
  • The Gem Forge UI now displays a boost counter for each stat – a small square indicates the stat received a large increase on level 5, 10, or 15. Gems that started with 2 stats will receive the 3rd stat on reaching level 5 rather than a large increase, so they will only have 2 squares after level 15. Gems that started with 3 stats will have 3 squares.
Additional Updates
  • Fixed a common server crash
  • Added golden dragon eggs for Wyntegra, Miraldis, and Indurion to the Greater Dragon Caches
  • Fixed the incorrect incoming damage stat on the Personal Spikebot ally
  • Allies and Mounts crafted in the Radiant Dayspring now unlock directly into collections
  • The previously confused dragon, Baesmuth, now indicates it grants +50 Lasermancy (instead of +50 Mining)
