As is very often the case with Shroud of the Avatar, things are changing, since the game is still in development. This week’s update newsletter has a host of details about what’s changing, from butchery to artifact salvage to combat.
In-game butchers will get to enjoy new animal processing recipes that replace old meat recipes and more animal-appropriate icons for these recipes, while artifacts that are salvaged at crafting tables will yield better goodies including Ancient Essences and a pattern which can change the appearance of gear in some cases. And speaking of crafting, there are some new bone piles and framed maps that can be crafted as well.
Meanwhile, additional updates include increased XP for high level elementals, elemental bosses, and daemons, improved monster resistance to Mesmerize, and a host of economic and item updates related to foal and tamed horse turn-ins, Conversationalists, and decoration improvements among other things. There’s more information in the Avatar’s Update.
