New Character:
A New Survivor - Barmaid (Demi Bourbon) has joined the Manor. Obtain Season 8 Essence 1 S Costume - True Proof to unlock this Character for free (this Character cannot be used in Rank Matches, Duo Hunters Mode and Blackjack Mode currently);

  • [External Trait - Dovlin]: Carries a wine barrel around to mix Strong Dovlin. Strong Dovlin can be drank when the Barmaid or Teammates are injured, but they will become Tipsy and their Fear will be reduced. The Barmaid also carries a bottle of D.U.P.H.R.I.N. Drinking it will increase the drinker's Fear by half. However, the D.U.P.H.R.I.N's Hard Drinker effect will also increase the drinker's Movement Speed by 50% for 2 seconds, and causes the consumer to be Tipsy and reduces their Fear. D.U.P.H.R.I.N's stimulation is strong, so it can't be drank when the Barmaid is injured. Additionally, the D.U.P.H.R.I.N cannot be shared with Teammates. Increased Fear due to Mixing and Strong Dovlin is not considered an injury and therefore does not trigger Panic, Deteriorate, Hunter's Instinct and Cowardly effects. [As the Coordinator and The Mind's Eye are below the drinking age, they will not be able to drink the Barmaid's Strong Dovlin. Demi Bourbon never serves anyone under the drinking age]
  • [External Trait - Mixing]: Mixing drinks costs energy. After mixing, the cost energy will immediately increase the Barmaid's Fear by half. However, the Barmaid will also gain 1 bottle of Strong Dovlin and become Tipsy, thus decreasing Fear. The maximum number for stored Dovlin is 1 bottle. Due to limited ingredients, only 2 bottles can be mixed in a single game. The D.U.P.H.R.I.N cannot be mixed in the Manor. The Barmaid is unable to mix when injured.
  • [External Trait - Tipsy]: Mixing or drinking the alcohol will put Survivors in a Tipsy state, and after it ends, Survivor's Fear will be decreased by half immediately. Mixing will cause Survivors to be Tipsy for 8 seconds. Drinking Strong Dovlin will cause Survivors to be Tipsy for 21 seconds. Consuming D.U.P.H.R.I.N will cause the Barmaid to be Tipsy for 8 seconds. However, if Survivors are hit when Tipsy, the effects will be immediately removed.
  • [External Trait - Hangover]: Whenever the Barmaid or other Survivors become Tipsy, their decoding speed will be decreased by 8% and the effects can be stacked up to 2 times.

Explorer's Skills Adjustments:

  • Fantasy: Carries around the novel, Gulliver's Travels, and can turn into a tiny Lilliputian after reading it. This also activates Treasure Hunt at the same time. He is undetectable by the Hunter's "radar" after shrinking, but cannot perform most actions. The locations of the Treasure is recorded in the book, and the page with the password can be found when you unearth it at those locations. Unearthing the password page will alert the Hunter. The password can be used to quickly decode half of the Cipher Machine. The Explorer is allowed to carry a maximum of two passwords, and leaving the Manor will cause players to drop them on the ground. Other Survivors are able to pick up and use them. Maps generate up to three locations with hidden treasure. Due to his love for books, this skill is not depleted when used.
  • Explore: Possesses superior survival skills and knows how to hide trails. Trail duration is decreased by 1 second. Vaulting obstacles will not alert the hunter (unchanged);
  • Curiosity: Extremely curious and often acts on a whim when decoding. The chance of triggering a calibration is increased by 30%, and the scope of success is decreased by 30% (unchanged);
  • Energy Reserves: Stop moving for 10 seconds to increase your movement speed by 40% for 1 second. This effect can only be triggered once every 80 seconds.

However, it will be displayed to the entire team when triggered. We hope all Detectives will manage to find it in the game. Meanwhile, this bonus is not available in Duo Hunters mode.

Seer Score Adjustments:

  • Adjusted Seer Friendliness bonus points, "Wings of Protection". The bonus points will now be awarded based on the time interval between the starting of the Owl's protection until the time the Owl is hit by the Hunter. The shorter the interval, the higher the bonus points;

  • Added Magician Persistence bonus points, "Trivial". The conditions to obtain the bonus are: If the Decoy is hit by the Hunter within a short period of time after creating a Decoy with a magic wand, the Magician will be awarded points according to the time interval between the creation of the Decoy and the time the Decoy was hit by the Hunter. The shorter the interval, the higher the bonus points;
  • Added Magician Achievement bonus points, "Lethal Magic". The trigger condition of the bonus points is hidden and triggering it is relatively difficult. However, it will be displayed to the entire team when triggered. We hope all Detectives will manage to find it in the game. Meanwhile, this bonus is not available in Duo Hunters mode.

Mechanic Score Adjustments:

  • Added Mechanic Persistence bonus points, "Puppetry". The conditions to obtain the bonus are: If the Puppet is hit by the Hunter within a short period of time after the Puppet is created, the Mechanic will be awarded bonus points based on the time interval between the creation of the Puppet and the time the Puppet was hit by the Hunter.

At the same time, we also hope that you can help us to use the in-game report system when you encounter such behavior, and work with us to maintain order at the manor.
