The most recent patch for Shroud of the Avatar is live now, and as has been the case with previous major patches, there’s a grand tour to be taken showing all of the ways in which the game has been updated. This in and of itself isn’t unusual. What is unusual is that this will be the final Grand Tour quest, with one last hat to be awarded for players who take a tour of everything new in the game. But that’s not the only thing that’s going to be coming to an end, as the most recent community letter includes the final dates for character wipes.
July 28th, 2016, is both the projected launch of Release 32 and the final planned wipe of character data; character information will be persistent from that point onward. This isn’t the same as the game launching, as it will still be an early access title, but players won’t have to worry that hard work will evaporate with another patch. So you know that your current experiences can be reversed, but the date of no more wipes is approaching quickly.
