Trove patches in the Golden Thread, now patches out the bugs

    
6
Into every life, a few game-destroying bugs must fall? Something like that.

The most recent Trove patch added in the Golden Thread, which is pretty great for everyone playing the game. For the new player, it means that you have the tools to find out how the game works and what you can do with it while earning up a ton of Cubits. For existing veterans, it means a simple questline that you can do… for tons of Cubits. Everyone wins!

At least, everyone who doesn’t run afoul of bugs in the process wins. Users on Reddit have compiled a short list of the bugs found in this patch, some of which were addressed in a recent hotfix, some of which were not. Users are reporting losing items and progress rather unexpectedly, which doesn’t help matters. Hopefully the bugs will be resolved quickly so that players can enjoy the tutorial in the spirit it was intended.

Once you get your head around the fact that you can use your cubes in the dungeons to get through stuff like lava etc. it’s pretty fun. In the tutorial I had to laugh as you literally run up to a wall right after being shown how to place cubes. And I ran around looking for a way to get up ….There are boats which can be crafted and I will try out the space bar as well.

Welcome to Trove! I love seeing people try this game, it’s so much fun.
To answer one of your questions, you don’t really swim, rather you use the space bar to stay afloat. There is also a vendor on the hub world where you can buy a raft. I just came back from a break (I play off and on) and the water zones which are a recent additon are a lot of fun, I’m really enjoying the lairs and dungeons they added there.
The game is simple, but it’s still a lot of fun. It reminds me of a dungeon crawler in that way. It can actually be pretty challenging too with the platforming and mob difficulty at higher levels. And if yesterday was your first day, it was kind of a buggy day. It’s the only time I’ve had so many issues, but I was still able to play and have fun.

I just played the game for the first time yesterday. I wanted to compare it to Cube which I played a little months ago. (Not sure if Cube ever got farther that the point I was at in development but while cute, didn’t have much to keep me playing for very long.) At this point I am pretty noobish but I do like certain aspects that Cube never had. The ability to build/destroy makes the game so much more fun as well as crafting. Cube had seed worlds which were  generated each with mixed biomes, towns, water, areas of various lvl difficulties and caves. Trove has hub worlds, club worlds (like Guilds?) and worlds of various lvls. I have played the low lvl world and you can set up a cornerstone (like a crafting area/home) anywhere that has claimable land. The land seems be for short term use until you get to a higher lvl. I do kinda miss a few things that cube had, but since this game is not yet finished (there is a cash shop tho which I bypassed)  may be coming at some point? Cube a dark nights, really really dark nights. It was pretty neat running around with a torch in pitch darkness. Cube also had Villages, which you were able to rest at for exp bonuses. The quests in both games are sparce, basically kill a boss in a dungeon so far as I have encountered. I found them both to be a little eye fatiguing after a while, after you see one proceedurally generated landscape you’ve kinda seen them all. And when I tried to swim (I am sure swimming was a thing in Cube) I sank to the bottom of the ocean and had to run along the bottom (maybe there is a way to swim?)…. I always strt playing a game before I know anything and then go for the info so I may be feeling better abot stuff once I have done that>

shocktor you’d think they would have learned from archeage, since theyve gone out of their way to copy so much content from archeage…

They need to release that PTS soon to avoid this…

Updated this game last night, sounds like there’s bughunting left yet though, so I’ll continue my intent to wait for “1.0” to give it another “serious” go.
