2024 Balancing Project Popularity Graph

Time in combat of affected respawns, before and after (until May 28th)

This Balancing Project was announced on March 6, 2024, with the intention to gather feedback from the community, analyze it, and implement changes to multiple hunting grounds based on the feedback.

Ferumbras' Ascendant hunting grounds[]

General adjustments[]

  • The entrance points were shifted right next to the Teleporters to give players the opportunity to leave the hunting grounds when being trapped. This was done in response to "a lot of feedback... that players get killed while being trapped on teleporter entrances".[1] The fix was later expanded to the remaining spots where trapping was still possible (lower floors).[2]
  • The experience gain from the minions of The Ruthless Seven and Ferumbras Mortal Shell was increased to reward the effort put into these fights. This was done to be "in line with last major updates":[1][3][4]

Increased respawn rate[]

Respawn rate was increased in some areas to improve hunting experience:[1][5]
