They have another dev update up, mostly just talking about the new event.
One thing they mentioned that I like and think they need to do more of is it sounds like there are ways to get specific items without relying on RNG. The Legendary Hydra weapon can be obtained by beating the event in Stonewood, a Mythic survivor can be obtained by beating it in Plankerton, etc. You’ll also have be able to get a Legendary hero of choice (in terms of the base class at least), but supposedly that will be pretty difficult to do.
They’re also reducing the costs of evolution on Survivors and increasing Survivor XP given, which I think is a direct response to those progression pot holes I’ve been endlessly complaining about. Things like Drops of Rain will drop in higher quantities as well, so in combination I think those will result in a boost across the board to Homebase power for players.
They’ll also be boosting everyone’s inventory by 10 slots and granting everyone a free People and Weapon llama. Full patch notes (14 pages of them, apparently) will be coming out next week.
