Sharpen Your Skills Update to Bring New Behemoths, Matchmaking Updates & More

Sharpen Your Skills Update to Bring New Behemoths, Matchmaking Updates & More -

The Dauntless team has released a video preview of the Sharpen Your Skills update coming to the game. In it, players will be able to face off against a pair of new behemoths, to check out new combat features, participate in the overhauled matchmaking system and be able to grab new gear and try out new character customization.

The update includes:

  • 2 new behemoths: Skarn, a behemoth with rock armor necessitating blunt force damage. The other behemoth is Kharabak, an insect-like, quick moving behemoth that is unpredictable in his attacks
  • war pikes are part polearm and part rocket launcher. Melee attacks fill a meter that provides ammo that can be shot out at ranged distance
  • physical damage types are getting notice in this update. War pikes take advantage of piercing damage. Combinations of damage type will give slayers an edge in most fights
  • the Cell System allows players to customize their own playstyle through tweaks to gear through sockets that provide various improvements and bonuses. These can be saved as sets to "pick the perfect one for any job"
  • the Progression System - instead of queuing, you can head into various regions within the game and go on "patrol" to take down behemoths in what appears to be an open-grouping system with shared resources from take-downs. The goal is less time looking for a group and more time hunting
  • daily and weekly hunts are a change of pace with tough behemoths for additional loot
  • new gear that bring new customization options 
  • the Frostfall event is the Winter Event. It will arrive in December
  • character creator has a lot more options
