Last weekend saw another update for Shroud of the Avatar, which once again focuses primarily on adjusting, tuning, and fixing existing content, as well as creating maps for the game’s zones in its ongoing cartography project.
The features of this patch are generally pretty granular, like making certain keys destroyable as intended, adding missing debuff icons, and a long list of targeted fixes for various quests currently in the MMORPG. The cartography project has also pushed forward, with maps for 10 more locations.
The rest of the newsletter for this month calls attention to the usual swath of subscriber freebies and cash shop items, and also heralds a birthday stream in honor of Richard Garriott on Friday, July 7th, when the devs will be talking about the latest release, answering player questions, and giving away prizes to entrants who either make a cash shop purchase or type a message in the game’s chat.
Garriott himself is not slated to be in attendance, presumably because he’s still involving himself with the doomed Titanic sub matter. Incidentally, Garriott’s Explorer’s Club highlighted a fluff piece about its involvement in the sub’s search and issued a statement saying that the club will push on in Hamish Harding’s honor.
