Torchlight III players already knew that there was a wipe incoming as a result of Relic retooling, but developer Echtra Games is apparently looking to “have a little fun with it” by celebrating the 12 Days of Wipemas. The downside is that today PWE and Echtra announced a delay for the wipe and associated festivities: It’s now coming August 11th.
Meanwhile, what is clearly outlined is the contents of a minor patch that fixes some issues like traveling to a blue void, erroneous achievement triggers, and an issue where players weren’t able to complete the Challenge Dungeon intro quest. That same update post, by the way, announces that the next State of the Game post will elaborate on tweaks to Relics. Which, again, are the whole reason for the wipe. Which is the reason for the Wipemas season.
Because of the upcoming wipe, we're sending out in-game mail every day for the next 12 days.
* Check your mailbox to find them. 📬
* All gifts have a 24-hour expiration. ⏲️
* You'll get the new mail + all previous day's items. 📦
