MMOs dressing us as murderhobos wouldn’t be so bad if we were super stylish murderhobos, right? Shroud of the Avatar plainly agrees, which is why the headline item in its latest newsletter is dye-able peasant gear that actually looks pretty decent. For peasant gear. I spy demure barmaid gowns too! There’s more to the dev update than dresses, of course. Portalarium includes new images from its do-over for Shaminian Hills, new heraldry items that you can stick your own sigil on, and a list of to-dos for NPCs in Central Brittany.
The studio says R54 is currently on the test server undergoing tweaks; it’s still expected to roll out on May 31st, with performance improvements, the rebuilt and polished zones and scenes (including Shaminian Hills), virtue effects for gear, more hints during the newbie tutorial, polish on companions, new side quests, new recipes, new housing and deco, and a polishing patch for the container UI.
