  1. New Features

    • Ship Combat UI update - A new UI has been added that pops up when you encounter a ship, allowing for some immediate options. This bestows the ability to interact with ship combat for players that continue to enjoy it, while allowing a way to quickly choose a different options to avoid them such as boarding or parley.
    • Turn-based mode leaving Beta - Thank you to our players that have tested turn-based mode! This will now be set to live with the 5.0.0 patch.
    • The Book Of Woedica: Unfortunately, The Book of Woedica contains a bug that doesn't allow for Woedica's VO to be heard unless the player opens the book on the World Map due to technical limitations. We apologize for this inconvenience!
      • A Note from Narrative Designer Paul Kirsch:
        • After Deadfire's launch and public reception, leadership and the writing team closely scrutinized some of the narrative issues which could have presented better or required some clarification. We distilled the most prevalent issues down to a couple of core factors: a lack of clarity regarding the metaphysics of Eora, and missing connectivity between Deadfire's "god plot" and "faction plot," for lack of a better term.
        • Shortly before launching The Forgotten Sanctum, those of us still attached to the project had some availability to address these concerns. A handful of developers pooled their efforts to execute on a plan that seeks to address these story problems through modestly-scoped, unobtrusive changes to the core game experience. What follows behind the Spoiler gate is a broad outline of the solutions we pursued. We hope you enjoy them. Thanks for reading, and thanks for playing!

          • Upon leaving Neketaka for the first time, a mysterious figure will deliver a book to the player.
          • The player may open and interact with the book at any time.
          • Doing so initiates a conversation with Woedica through our Scripted Interaction interface.
          • She and the Watcher can discuss the motives of the gods, the mechanics of reincarnation, and why the Watcher and factions matter on a grander scale than the player might otherwise assume.
          • Woedica responds to a number of player choices, world events, and quest states. This means that the book can be consulted a number of times in a given playthrough to unlock new conversation branches.
          • Woedica responds to players who empowered her in PoE1 and Steel Garrote / Priest of Woedica players.
          • Players who have confided in Woedica will find the god conversation on Ukaizo expanded to include an extra one-on-one with Woedica.

      • The Ultimate Challenge requires the following to be enabled/completed:
        • Triple Crown - Expert Mode, Trial of Iron, Path of the Damned
        • Level Scaling (Only scale upwards)
        • Solo
        • All 11 God Challenges - Wael, Woedica, Hylea, Rymrgand, Ondra, Skaen, Abydon, Magran, Berath, Galawain, and Eothas.
        • All DLCs - Beast of Winter/ Seeker, Slayer Survivor/ Forgotten Sanctum.
        • All major enemies and boss battles completed.
      • The Ultimate Challenge requires the following to be disabled:
        • Console Command Cheats
        • Mods
        • Beraths Blessings
    • Anarchist Path - Changes have been added to the Anarchist path to allow for more of the game to be experienced before the player can attempt to finish the game.
    • Spoiler
      • Removed the Blackwood Hull and Dragonwing sails from Neketaka's city map store.
      • Added a new crafting recipe for the Blackwood Hull (requires 5 Blackwood Logs and 64000cp).
      • There are now 5 locations where the player can pick up Blackwood Logs. 
        Spoiler

         

        • The Blackwood Logs can be found at Fort Deadlight, Crookspur, the Lich Cave Uncharted Island, Drowned Barrows, and Splintered Reef.
