Update Notes: 3.01

Posted by BAdler , in Patch Notes 22 February 2016 · 61347 views

These are the update notes for Update 3.01.

Major Fixes
  • Fixed a problem where players were unable to loot containers in Ondra's Gift at night.
  • Using Abydon's Hammer will now properly unequip offhand items.
  • Fixed an issue to prevent the game hanging on completion of some Stronghold adventures.
White March Specific
  • Marunn's door in the Great Hall will no longer be sealed if the area, for any reason, resets its persistence data upon returning to it from lower levels of the battery.
  • Various balance fixes to combats and skill checks in the Abbey of the Fallen Moon.
  • Fixed white box effect appearing on tentacle emerge in Maneha's cutscene in Burden of Memory quest.
  • Cleaned up the infiltration option into the Abbey of the Fallen Moon so it will feel less confusing.
  • Fixed an issue where attacking Kaoto after peaceful dialogue, then sneaking into Halls of Silence unseen by any other guards, and then selecting a particular dialogue option if discovered by guards in Halls of Silence, will no longer cause the game to hang.
  • Adjusted Maneha's stats down to 78. Previously they were at 81.
  • Fixed an issue in the Ice Floes scripted interaction in Cayron's Scar so it will display the correct name when a Dexterity check is failed.
  • Picking up Grey Sleeper while your character's inventory is full will no longer delete your character's previously equipped weapon.
  • Fixed issue with a guard in Cragholdt Bluffs that barks "You had your chance" after every dialogue ending.
  • Fixed issues with Mowrghek Ien where combats could be started with enemies that the player could not reach.
  • Updated Kraken Poison Cloud to use correct icon/name.
  • Fixed problem where the fort gate may not open during an Eyeless attack.
  • Ending interstitial now plays proper VO.
Spells and Abilities
  • Lowered Reaping Knives focus gain to 30% so that it'll be the correct amount after Soul.
  • Updated Healing Chain so its no longer a Spell Chance and now it correct functions as a Spellbind.
  • Fixed Triumph of the Crusaders so it is now working correctly.
  • Characters now gain Second Wind correctly.
  • Fixed a problem where characters were getting Second Wind twice.
  • Fixed Distant Advantage accuracy bonus applying as a penalty.
  • Updated Hope Eternal so that it now works correctly.
  • Infinite-duration status effects from missing equipment will be removed on load.

  • Steadfast now has the correct unlock for Druids.
  • Gyrd Haewanes Stenes will now present a pop-up UI on its final level up.

  • Fixed some resting options in dialogues that were not working correctly.
  • Option to buy veteran troops for the battle of Yenwood will no longer only display once. It will stay available until purchased.
  • Fixed issue with traps not being marked as "Detected" soon enough. This was causing high Mechanics party members to detect friendly "traps" from some spells.
  • Fixed area maps so the fog of war correctly covers the entire map in some areas that were having problems.
  • Added the sketch to Abydon's Hammer.
  • Hooked up new icons for various Eyeless abilities.

  • Snow Bear added into the bestiary.
  • Fixed grimoire learn buttons not showing the first time a grimoire was opened.
  • Form of the Delemgan should have redundant entries in the UI removed.
  • Better UI formatting for abilities that reduce affliction durations.

Thank you!

Great job! Thanks!

Great! By chance does anyone know if they fixed the faith and conviction bug reported here:


Aarik D said it'd be in the next patch, but I don't see anything about it listed here.

Should we expect to see additional balance balance and gameplay tweaks/overhauls in future patches, or just bug fixes?

illathid: I didn't see a fix for the Faith and Conviction bug in the check-ins. It is possible that it will be on 3.02.


Leferd: I would expect a mix of balance changes, gameplay tweaks, and bug fixing.

Very quick; nice change log!

I see now the Faith and Conviction reputation bonuses applied but only  on retrain character or on level up. Not immediately when you receive a reputation.

What about ciphers 2nd level power "Amplified Thrust" - now it gain focus, so you can cast it continuosly and endlessly. You want to fix this bug?

What about the issue with St. Ywden's Redeemer applying Divine Mark to both target and the wielder? Didn't make it into this patch I take it?

The bug where after you exit and re-enter the Maw everyone is in combat mode is still a bug. Not crucial to complete the game but still annoying if you want to end the Noonfrost quest.

great job!

I saw the fix in our changelist, but it was being held until the 3.02 patch since it came in after our deadline.

1.2gb for this update?  seems a bit much.  =S

There isn't a lot we can do about that. It is a mixture of how Unity 4 creates builds and how Steam generates patches.


Supposedly it is better with Unity 5, but I am not sure.

Also, sometimes Aloth turns into black smoke and then invisible. Is that because he is super powerful that he walks between the realms?

How about fixing some of the game breaking bugs, like the Treasury NEVER having any loot. Makes the whole upgrading the Stronghold thing kind of moot. Maybe fix the Rangers pet permanently disappears bug. How about fixing the bug that prevents you from looting corpses for the rest of the game. But, thanks for dropping Maneha's stats by 3 points.

How do i get updates if I did not yet got March part of the game? I got the game through GOG and I am not sure about updating properly even if I buy the extention.

does this update severely increase loadscreen time for anyone else ?
