Shroud of the Avatar has never been bereft of interesting ideas or experimental initiatives. One of these is getting a live preview today with Release 57, as everyone can check out the potential for player-made dungeons.
While for-real player dungeons won’t be coming until Q4 this year, Portalarium did make five temporary ones available to place in and around player housing to see what they will be like.
Today’s patch is mostly concerned with quality-of-life improvements, including the ability to skip sieges and control points. The studio also instituted global banks, permanently doubled the rate of XP gain, added helpful UI features, allowed players to dye house decorations, and got rid of several “continual inconveniences and slow-downs.”
There’s also an effort underway to fund the second issue of the Shroud of the Avatar comic book. This officially-licensed issue will be 32 pages long and only needed $700 to fund (which is has already surpassed).
