8

We’ve been covering this update’s arrival for a long while, and now it’s finally arriving. It’s Blade & Soul’s big Unreal Engine 4 upgrade update, and it’s launching today, bringing with it a whole lot of new content on top of the expected visual upgrade as the patch notes can attest.

On top of the big attractions of the patch like the new Dual Blade class and the new dungeon, the update will also introduce four new events, ramp up the maximum number of character slots to 14, add glove and belt accessories, update the UI, and renew character presets among other things. The patch notes also outline some new achievements to earn, updates to daily and weekly quests, and a host of adjustments to classes. All in all, there is whole lot to read.

Would love to go back but the mandatory 2 factor authentication on every login is such a turn off I’ll rather pass.

  • Start client
  • Enter password
  • Open the email client
  • Wait for an email with the new 2FA code
  • Enter the code on the on-screen keyboard that keeps switching number places, fumble, try again
  • Delete the 2FA email
  • Delete the email that confirms you logged in
  • Play

Check “Remember IP” to stop the 2FA. I think it was on the input box to put in the 2FA code. – just went through this earlier myself.

This side of the globe it’s unusual to have a static IP, my IP changes very often – daily at least.

Might be a central/eastern Europe thing and everyone else is exempt and doesn’t have to deal with this, but it does make me just play something else instead.

US here and every service is different. Some have statics, some charge extra for statics, and most I have had in the past have a pretty long expiration set for non-stats.

I use WinAuth on my desktop. Works like charm if the game is up and running.

Yeah it sucks. And sometimes they even ban you for “supposed” vpn use.

Downloading it as the pigtails types this out…

Update: …welp, that didn’t work out so well.

The updater kept glitching out at random points along the updating….sending it back to square one. After rinsing and repeating this all afternoon and getting no where, I threw in the towel and pigtail. Then sent a kindly worded petition to their tech support about this, and now awaiting (and probably for a long while being patch day) for them to reply.

Meanwhile, I notice my hard drive is bloated way into in the red, and may have something to do with this (ie: It has no fargin room!). Although a more massive hard drive is in the works to fix this…so I may not be able to play this until that’s all installed and working.

I hope others here had better luck and I have done with this. And enjoy the new UE4 upgrade when they can get into it. I’ll just have to patiently wait for the fixes and imagine what it could be like. /sigh
