General Updates and Fixes

  • Fixed an issue with healing hotkeys in Group Mode that caused the players assigned to each hotkey to change during combat.
  • Fixed an issue with the Region Transfer button so it displays a more accurate time for when a player can transfer between regions.
  • Fixed an issue where a character could get locked into an error message when attempting to log in.
  • Added a speculative fix for an issue that caused players to sometimes encounter a respawn screen with an infinite timer and no respawn. We will continue to monitor the forums to see if players are still encountering this rare issue.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed some players to instantly respawn and ignore the wave respawn timers during War & Invasion game modes.

Great Axe Insatiable Gravity Well (Perk)

  • Fixed an issue where this perk hit enemies around the player twice (instead of once) on use.
  • Reduced the weapon damage of the secondary burst from 125% to 100%.
  • Reduced block stamina damage of the secondary burst from 150% to 70% of a player’s base stamina damage.

With the arrival of Lost Ark as a free-to-play experience, we have witnessed a significant decrease in the number of players in New World, however, some content creators believe that New World is a far better MMO compared to Lost Ark when it comes to the gameplay systems.
