The Apocrean Harvester Is Back!

ATTENTION KNIGHTS!

The season of the Apocrean Harvester is upon us again, and Spiral HQ needs your help in beating it back into dormancy! For a detailed brief on this nefarious entity, go here.

Get equipped and venture onto the Grasping Plateau, free trapped souls, and earn Apocrean Sigil tokens for your heroic deeds. Knights can use these tokens at the Obelisk of Creation to craft Obsidian weapons and the Grasping Aura.

Take care while in the field! You don't want to get caught out there alone--definitely bring your friends with you on this mission, and never leave a knight behind!

Obsidian Prize Boxes

While the event is going, the Supply Depot will stock Obsidian Prize Boxes which may contain the following:

  • Obsidian Hoods
  • Obsidian Mantles
  • Apocrean Crowns
  • Apocrean Disciple Wings
  • Shadow accessories

The Auction House will be stocking some Apocrean themed guild hall furniture to give your guild hall a touch of terror… er… class.

For details on the Obsidian Prize Box, head over here. This event runs through June 17, 2018.

Just Wing It

Greetings Knights!

Some knights were made ready to take off on adventure and reach new heights. For these knights, Spiral HQ has created a special set of items. Soar into Aerodynamic Boxes to zero in on costumes, Contrails Auras, Swing Wings, and all new accessories.

In order to maintain altitude, it’s important to be able to keep your speed up and maintain your course. That’s why we’ve manufactured a Airbraker shield. This shield helps deflect any incoming projectiles while in a chaotic dogfight. If that doesn’t work, dash away and hope your Chaff Pack distracts them.

The Aerodynamic Box contains items such as:

  • Airbraker shield
  • Contrails Aura
  • Swing Wings
  • Chaff Pack - Give it a Dash!
  • New Dynamic Accessories
  • Costumes
  • Accessories

More information on the Aerodynamic Prize Box and its contents may be found here.

Additional Notes:

  • A new accessory slot has been added for the ankle area. This way you can wear a back accessory along with something to keep your ankles warm. If you already had some slippers or other ankle accessories attached, they should automatically be moved to the ankle slot.
  • We believe we are now finished with some extensive work to our backend. You’ve noticed this ongoing work, but it should now be complete. In doing so, we fixed several long standing problems like the bug reporting system, Steam inventory icons, and several non-player facing issues.
  • As mentioned before, the bug reporting system is now in working order. This means you can file a bug report by hitting F2. You do this to send a log of what happened to us and report a bug you’ve seen to developers. If you need help in game, please continue to contact support so they know. Support does not review and respond to bug reports, they respond to requests and emails.
