Wolcen’s Bloodtrail Chronicle update is live as a massive 12GB update

Remember when Wolcen announced that its first seasonal Chronicle, Bloodtrail, would be coming soon–  but didn’t offer up a date? It turns out “soon” meant actually soon because Bloodtrail is already live.

The flagship addition of this season is the new Hunts feature, which sends players to track down bosses and slay them for unique rewards, but that’s barely scratching the surface of this huge, 12+ gigabyte update. Other features include vanity pets, a new active skill, a tweaked campaign and new story, more elemental modifiers for nearly every active skill that should greatly expand the games already vast build options, and numerous balance and quality of life changes.

It may have taken a while to get here, but at least we know the Wolcen team wasn’t sitting on its hands all this time.

the 12BG is due to the engines poor system for doing updates. Its not the amount of content that was added or at all tied to the changes made. Just FYI

Yeah, I patched Wolcen on the weekend.
Then I crashed three times in 30 minutes in Offline mode.
Gave up and patched Last Epoch instead.
The new Rogue class there is fun.

big problem i have with it is that you have to start all over took my like 6 moths to finish building up the town and bonuses and all that effort is now wasted

Supposedly the most buggy part of the patch is migration for legacy characters. I saw a lot of people complaining that their old towns or characters were basically bricked

Being a summoner fan, this patch didn’t really do much. There’s still only half a cluster of minion related nodes on the tree, and only on the third wheel. While minion damage is now based on weapons (lazy design) it does nothing for their hp and my minions have been dying too much, even with full investment into survivability from modifications. There still doesn’t seem to be any item affixes for minion builds.
I still really like how ailment builds play in the game, but dislike the passive wheel in general and being forced to play through the story once more is disappointing as well. Being very reliant on a basic melee attack as a caster sucks as you still can’t customize that in any way and the willpower/rage mechanic has never felt good to me.
My biggest issue with endgame was the lack of tilesets, but I haven’t gotten there yet.
Overall the game seems better than before, but probably still not worth buying over pretty much any other arpg on the market (except torchlight 3, don’t get that one)

What would you recommend for a next gen ARPG, I already own Grimdawn.

Last Epoch is still in beta, but it’s the one to pay attention to. The devs have some really solid ideas, and they’re good at not making the same mistakes other games have made. It’s pretty deep, but it’s still very easy to figure out.
Chronicon and Hero Siege are also pretty good.
I really like 40k inquisitor but it’s somewhat divisive and overpriced. If you get it, make sure to get it while it’s on deep discount.
If you want something unusual try Drox Operative 2 or Book of Demons

As Vanquesse V mentioned, the 40K Inquisitor game is pretty solid. They’re about to start their second Season; and it looks like they learned quite a bit from Season 1. Additionally, since you mentioned liking pet classes, Inquisitor: Prophecy is a stand-alone expansion (does not require Inquisitor: Martyr) that adds the Tech-Adept, a pet class, to the game, which I have found to be quite fun. However, it does continue the storyline, and you’ll not be able to play with the three base classes without the core game, Martyr.

I would agree that picking up Martyr and Prophecy on sale would be a good choice, especially since we’re coming up on the Winter Sales for both Steam and Humble Bundle.

Oh, I didn’t know about them getting ready for season 2 soon, very happy to hear.
The standalone has only one class and less story than the base, but the endgame is the same in either version. The Tech-Adept is one of my all time favorite arpg summoners. there’s so. much. customization.
