On April 24th, Dauntless will be updated with the Path of the Slayer. In a new video developer diary, the team shares some of the major changes coming to the game, including a core progression rework, the introduction of the new Mastery System, new weapon customization options and "updates to the hammer, pike, sword and chain blades".
With our rework of quests and progression, Slayers will now get the info they need to start mastering skills early on. We’ve structured our starter quests to put rookies through the basics and updated our tutorial cards with new graphics and cleaner instructions.
There are also a number of changes coming to the Hunt. These will be most easily viewed on the Map interface. On hitting "M", players will see what Hunts are available and be able to start one right from the interface.
It's a beefy update that brings some welcome changes to the game. Be sure to check out the Path of the Slayer info page on the Dauntless site.
