By Rebecca Smith, 2 months ago
Earlier today, you may have noticed the Xbox servers for Trove were taken offline while the development team applied the latest update for the title. Well, the servers are now back up and we have a list of all of the fixes that the hotfix implemented.

Trove

Gameplay Enhancements

  • The drop rates for the new dragon fragments have all been increased to improve the experience for players attempting to acquire them
  • The health of non-boss mobs in the Shadow Towers has been reduced by 30% (bosses are unchanged) due to their health scaling higher than the intended design

Additional Updates

  • Flask Emblems have been updated to remove their effects from the player when swapped out to prevent stacking minions
  • Fixed an exploit where players could get weekly Shadow Tower rewards more than once per week
  • Added Shadow Tower Key Mold workbenches to the boss rooms in the Shadow Tower
  • Griffon NPCs in the Shadow Tower will no longer do their best electric slide while attacking
  • Sorry pink fans! The bug causing some player's names to appear pink has been resolved
  • Improved the Gem Forge UI to make it easier to upgrade gems when using a controller
  • The text in the Gem Forge UI should now stay inside the UI
  • Crafting the Wings of Wizardry in the Chaos Crafter now unlocks the correct item in collections
  • Crafting the Book Pile Base and Book Pile Top in the Highland Workbench will now create the correct items

Stability Improvements

  • Fixed a server crash that could cause queuing when trying to enter the game
  • Optimized various UI components to reduce memory related crashes
  • Reduced memory usage during startup to reduce potential for crashes during gameplay
  • Reduced memory usage on consoles when using the Trovian Atlas and then switching worlds to further reduce potential for crashes
  • Reduced the likelihood of crashing during the Darknik Dreadnought fight in the Shadow Tower
  • Fixed various issues when trading at a trade post, including a crash that could occur when cancelling a trade
  • Fixed several crashes that could occur in these situations:
    • In areas with lots of other players
    • When multiple light sources were present in the same area
    • While switching worlds
    • While performing the fishing action
    • Using the Dracolyte’s abilities
All of the above fixes are live now.
