A Bumpy Start to Release 56 Causes a Rollback and a Retry
The launch of the latest patch for Shroud of the Avatar has not come without its problems. After maintenance was complete, developers came back to the official site to announce that it would be rolling servers back to the pre-patch status in order to give it another go. As of this writing, the restart / relaunch of Update 56 is now live.
According to the developer note on the SotA site, the rollback was necessary when a step was inadvertently skipped. Data migration for brewing was not completed which would have resulted "in a corrupted state unless" a rollback was completed.
Other components of today's update include:
- global visual improvements
- performance improvements
- more unicorn components
- UI polish
- Dragons, Liches & Corpions added
- new side quests
- Obsidian Trials
- tier adjustments
- more recipes
- new decorations
- R55 QA testing incentives deployed
- R55 lot deed raffle winners
