Fearless a new season starts today Patch 1.6.0. Phoenix Labs has a roadmap planned for spring and summer, but Infinite Radiance is the first step, and this patch has a time theme.
Players can go through the season pass to earn cosmetics, including a fancy armor set. Wounding now works differently and is much more visible, allowing hunters to focus on the damaged part of a behemoth to build some momentum. The War Pike weapon has also been improved, and most of the weapon’s stats have been reworked to make it more efficient in combat.
Today’s update includes three important features to be aware of. Phoenix Labs explains the updates in a post on its website:
tries Update: The trials have received much-needed love and care. Test objectives are goal-oriented requirements such as winning without being knocked down to reward championship in combat. Solo leaderboards are now separated by weapon type and show the total number of objectives achieved. Complete objectives to earn a higher spot on the leaderboard and earn rewards. Your completion time is taken into account to break ties.
Reward cache and challenges: The Reward Cache is a seasonal store that replaces the vault and offers a wide range of goods for seasonal currency. A season is roughly the length of two hunting passes. You’ll find a range of items here (including new weapon and armor skins) as well as Aether Sparks, Patrol Keys, and classic rewards from previous Passes. Unlock rewards with seasonal coins and crystals from new daily and weekly challenges: timed quests that ask you to kill Behemoths, complete escalations, and much more. All Vault Coins have been converted to these new seasonal currencies.
Great giants and perfect punch: Strange fluctuations in radiant ether and time energy are reported on the Shattered Isles. These faults open rifts for various periods of time in the past and future. During this season, players will gain access to two timelines, each with new hunting ground challenges, as well as new seasonal talent trees that unlock unique skills. This patch starts with the past and its Perfect Strike ability.
Additional updates for Fearless will arrive on April 22nd when a new cell is added, along with other additions to the reward cache. There will be more major updates on May 6th and May 22nd, including a new Behemoth, Elder Behemoths, and a new Radiant Island.
