The latest Dauntless update is here, and it adds some new balance and quality of life changes, while setting the stage for a few coming events that begin tomorrow.
The update is live now, and 17.5 adds a new dominion dye rumour, which you can unlock by meeting some secret requirements while you fight a Dreadfrost Boreus. Sounds easy enough, right? If you're up for the challenge, you'll obtain the rumour clue drop and talk to Gregario once you do to start the questline.
On October 1st, the Dark Harvest is coming, and there will be new quest content and some new discoveries to be made in Ramsgate starting on that date. The actual Dark Harvest event won't start until October 21st, but the Unseen cult will be getting there a little early. Prepare for the year's spooky month once October arrives.
The other changes include reducing cooldown on Phaelanx weapons, putting lava flows in the Blazeworks furnace for the Phaelanx event, and some bug fixes and UI changes. Two crash bugs have also been fixed.
Along with the update, there are some other events that will happen. Starting tomorrow, September 24th and lasting until October 1st, there's a coin flip bonus, with each flip giving you an hour of Escalation boost, effective immediately.
There are also three weeks of bounty events, Ramstravaganza weekends. Starting at and ending at 10AM Pacific on the weekends of September 24th-27th, October 1st-4th, and October 8th-11th, for every completed bounty, you'll get 500 bonus rams.
