  • About Tarot Mode

1. Tarot is a new game mode that requires 8 players' participation at the same time. Players are divided into two factions, "Upright" and "Reversed." Each faction consists of a King, a Knight, and two Squires. The Knight will be played by Hunters, and the rest will be played by Survivors.

2. How to win: The Squires must protect their King from the enemy Knight's pursuit. The game ends when either side's King is eliminated on a Rocket Chair.

3. The gameplay will utilize a new waiting lobby where a maximum of 4 players can select their Role as one faction during the matching process. The two Knights from both factions can't choose the same Hunter character. When matching as a Survivor, players are deemed to have allowed the switching of Roles between the King and a Squire by default.

4. Together with the new pre-matching interface function, the Matchmaking Interface now supports adjustable window size (players can access most of the actions in the lobby while matching).

5. Tarot Mode will randomly select between the Arms Factory, the Red Church, or the Sacred Heart Hospital as the scene. The spawn points for both factions in each game are fixed.

6. Players can gather Stars through the game to purchase items at the Star Shop. The new Tarot Mode exclusive items have strategic functions such as delivering Stars, revealing a King's location, and such.

  • Tarot Special Rules

1. Teammates in the same faction won't be affected by each other's collision and attack judgment when they're in a neutral status.

2. The game will record each faction's decoding progress. Once your faction's decoding progress reaches 300%, your King and Squires' Borrowed Time talent and your Knight's Detention talent will be triggered (for characters with such talents only).

3. The King can take an additional normal attack than a Squire.

4. When a Squire is within a certain range from the King, the King will receive a small movement speed boost.

5. When the King is rescued from a Rocket Chair, the King and the Squire who saved him will receive a Shield that lasts 10 seconds. The shield is able to resist one damage.

6. Squires can't be placed on Rocket Chairs, and they can ignore the self-healing limit after they are knocked down (for characters with such talent only).

7. Knights can quickly help their King and Squires get back on their feet when they're knocked down. The ability's cooldown is adjusted to 40 seconds. Knights could only help their Kings get back on their feet once in each game. However, there's no limit to helping their Squires.

  • Tarot Shop and Item Rules:

1. Shop: There is a Star Shop in the game's battle interface. Players can gather Stars in the game and purchase items in the Star Shop.

2. Stars: Stars are in-game tokens that players can obtain by decoding Cipher Machines, pursuing Survivors, and containing Hunters.

3. Items: This mode features various game items available for purchase in the Star Shop. Kings and Squires can carry two items while Knights can carry one.

4. The followings are the exclusive items for this new mode:

Mercenary: The number of Elbow Pads he carries at the start of the game is adjusted to 2. Remove the debuff when more than one Mercenary is in play.

Seer: The accumulating duration for staring at the enemy's Knight is increased to 30 seconds.

3. Rules Regarding the Effects of Faction Abilities: Teammates in the same faction won't be affected by each other's collision and attack judgment when they're in a neutral status. Damage and debuffs from teammates' abilities won't affect your faction.

If a player is guaranteed to receive an S item after they open a Memory Sphere 10 more times and an A or higher graded item after they open another Memory Sphere 5 more times, the player will still receive an S item after they open the new Memory Sphere 10 more times and an A or higher graded item after they open the new Memory Sphere 5 more times. Once the player receives an item of the corresponding grade, the guarantee will be reset to default, i.e. when 250 spheres are opened, an S item is guaranteed; when 60 spheres are opened, an A or higher graded item is guaranteed; when 10 spheres are opened, a B or higher graded item is guaranteed.)

  • After "Memory Sphere: Previous Seasons" becomes available, players can set a guaranteed item once for each quality grade. Players are able to set either a costume or accessory in their desire quality grade as a guaranteed item. When they win an item in that quality grade, they will receive the item they set as the guarantee. Please set the guarantees timely as they can't be accrued.
  • The new Memory Sphere "Memory Sphere - Previous Seasons" can be purchased with 488 Clues or 96 Inspirations.
  • For the Classic Memory Spheres, players will not receive a duplicate A or B item until all A or B items have been obtained.
  • We are giving away 20 "Memory Sphere: Previous Seasons" to players who log in to the game before October 13, 23:59:59.

New Survivor

Name: Edgar Valden

Profession: Painter

Introduction: The single male heir of Valden family, Edgar showed keen interest and great talent for art from a young age. His family's pampering and the society's high praise contributed to his peculiar personality. He cares about nothing but art. He's so arrogant that no one is good enough to discuss art with him.

He didn't join the game for the prize money as he is the single heir of the affluent family. So why did he join the game?

External Trait:

Artistic Sensitivity

He carries a paintbrush and a drawing board with him. Once he has memorized a Hunter's face, the Painter is able to paint the Hunter's face on the drawing board.

When the painting is done, he can place the drawing board in the scene.

When the Hunter sees the placed drawing board, they will be attracted by it, walking over involuntarily and stopping to admire their own visage in front of it.

If the Hunter takes too much time walking over to the drawing board, they will lose interest in the painting, which renders the drawing board useless.

Memorizing:

Within a certain range from a Hunter, the Painter needs to look at the Hunter's face from the front to memorize it.

Painting:

Once he has memorized the Hunter's face, tap the ability button to begin painting. The Painter can move while painting but cannot interact. Tap the ability button again to stop painting.

Placing the drawing board:

When the painting is done, tap the ability button to place the drawing board. The Hunter will be attracted by force when they get close to the drawing board.

Aesthetic Resonance

During the creation of a painting, the Painter will be affected by his own work. Every time he places a painting, his movement speed will increase permanently by 2%. This effect can be stacked up to 3 times.

Intuition

The Painter is perceptive and observant to real-life objects and so he will not be affected by a Rocket Chair with 50% progress. When he is put on a Rocket Chair for the second time, the progress will return to the same progress of the last time he was saved.

Self Fulfillment

When the painting's effect wears off, the Hunter will be extremely interested in its painter. The Painter will expose his location to the Hunter for 5 seconds.

Battle:

Sculptor Adjustment:

  • A Survivor who suffers "Sculpture Crush" damage from the Sculpture of Wisdom and Sculpture of Agility when they are merging will no longer suffer dashing damage from the merged Sculpture of Nobility.

Logic Path

  • Adjusted the display of the weekly limit interface.
  • Added a new Guide/Rewards interface which contains details of the Logic Path targets and rewards for this season.
  • Added a costume target guide for the next stage in the interface.

Room

  • Added an Official Recommendation function to the Furniture Layout page in the Room. Players can view the officially recommended Room decoration layouts here and place furniture according to a selected plan. One-tap placing will only place furniture which a player already owns, and will replace the current furniture in the Room. Missing furniture can be purchased separately in this interface.

Label System

  • The label system is updated. The Achievement Label and Custom Label settings interface has become the Main Label and Secondary Label interface.
  • Players can now set 1 Main Label and 3 Secondary Labels. The Manor Career Achievement Labels, Guild Ranking Achievement Labels, and Event Achievement Labels can be set as the Main Label, while all labels (including Custom Labels) can be set as Secondary Labels.

  • Players' labels are categorized into S/A/B/C based on difficulty (there are no S labels for now).

Improvements:

  • Fixed an issue where the Tipsy status in the character status display would disappear when the Mercenary drank Strong Dovlin while he was injured and under the protection of the Seer's owl. The Tipsy status disappeared when he was hit by a Hunter (only the Tipsy status display on the upper right corner disappeared, but HP would still be recovered).
  • Fixed an issue where a Survivor who was lassoed by the Cowboy could end up drifting when they were hit by a Hunter while flying.
  • Fixed an issue in the Red Church where the AI couldn't reach certain areas inside the pavilion located near the exit gate.

Battle

  • The Sculptor is now available in Rank Matches.
  • At the start of the battle, the Sculptor begins with a Sculpture of Wisdom and a Sculpture of Agility.
  • To solve the issue with mobile devices where dragging to place sculptures in the creator's perspective would easily be canceled, players can no longer cancel the action by dragging to the lower right corner of the screen in the creator's perspective. However, players can still tap the "Cancel" button on the left of the screen to cancel the action. Summoning sculptures in the normal perspective and doing so in the creator's perspective in the PC version are not affected.

  • Added a hidden Achievement the Gardener—Prominent Threat. The condition for this achievement is hidden, and the way to achieve it is relatively difficult. We hope all Detectives can figure this condition out by exploring the game further. Also, this bonus will not occur in Duo Hunters mode.

  • Improved the refreshing list logic when searching for Friends.
  • The preview interface will now prioritize the display of newly-obtained portraits/portrait frames.

The display rule is now changed so players will have to tap "Confirm" in order to synchronize and display in the Personal Profile page.

Room

  • New butlers, Silent Maid and Silent Guard, are now available in the Palace of Silence. They sank to the bottom of the sea as a result of an evil curse. What enables them reemerge and reunite now?

New Essence

  • Season Essence: Season 12 Essence 2 is now available. New Costume updates include the Sculptor's S Costume - Checkmate, the Mechanic's A Costume - Re-swim, and the Photographer's A Costume - En Ligne. Obtain S Costume - Checkmate and receive the all-new Hunter - Sculptor for free.

New Character

A new Hunter - Sculptor (Galatea) has joined the Manor. Obtain Season 12 Essence 2 S Costume - Checkmate to unlock this Character in advance and receive it for free (this Character can be used in Quick Matches, Duo Hunters Mode, and Blackjack Mode this week, and will be available for use in Single Training Mode and Rank Matches later on).

  • External Trait: Sculpture of Strength

Galatea's sculpture can push Survivors by force. Pushing Survivors against obstacles will deal damage equal to half of a normal attack on them.

Sculptures are generated in pairs and will move towards each other at high speed once they have risen. If they hit an obstacle, they will return in the opposite direction. They will be destroyed if they hit an obstacle 3 times.

Special: The generation of sculptures is restricted by the terrain so that only one sculpture will be generated when using the ability in certain special terrains. Survivors will not suffer repeated damage from Sculpture Crush within 1 second.

  • Ability: Sculpture of Wisdom (Tier 0)

Galatea summons a pair of side-by-side sculptures at the target location.

  • Ability: Sculpture of Agility (Tier 0)

Galatea summons a pair of sculptures, one in front of another, at the target location.

  • Ability: Hieroglyphic Graveyard (Tier 1)

Galatea throws out a weapon toward the target location. Once the weapon lands, a Hieroglyphic Graveyard will be generated.

In the next 16 seconds, Galatea will look down on the Hieroglyphic Graveyard from the creator's perspective and make sculptures, during which he can move but cannot perform most actions such as attack.

  • Ability: Sculpture of Nobility (Tier 2)

When two different sculptures collide, they will merge into the Sculpture of Nobility and immediately charge towards the nearest Survivor. It will shatter when it hits the target or an obstacle, dealing damage equal to half of a normal attack to all Survivors within a small range.

Based on the test results on the test server, we have also made the following adjustments to this character:

  • To solve the problem of sculptures being difficult to place near scene elements, now only one sculpture in the pair is required to be placed in the right position for the ability to be cast successfully (only one sculpture will appear in this case).
  • Slightly reduced the size of the sculpture's collision with terrains and slightly increased the size of the sculpture's push judgment against Survivors.
  • Added a note on how Survivors will not suffer repeated damage from Sculpture Crush within 1 second.
  • Expanded the maximum cast range of Hieroglyphic Graveyard.
  • The camera steering angle will be expanded when the creator's perspective is active.
  • Fixed an issue where the color change logic for Sculptor's notice icon was confusing when the creator's perspective was active. The icon will now change color when there is an active Survivor within 12 meters of the Sculptor.
  • Sculpture of Nobility's damage will no longer activate Survivor's acceleration effect.
  • Improved the artistic performance of some of the actions and effects.
  • Fixed an issue where the Sculptor's item failed to display in the matching room.

Battle:

Adjustments to Eversleeping Town in Rank Matches:

  • Widened the stairs on the second floor to avoid jamming.
  • Added holes to the second-floor slab.

  • There will no longer be a red dot prompt from the Hunter's radar when the First Officer uses the Poseidon Watch, or when the Magician is performing an Illusion.

Judgment Optimization for Axe Boy's Resentful Soul:

  • Acceleration will now be triggered (instead of Survivors who get close to Axe Boy receive abnormal hits) when the Resentful Soul comes in contact (instead of completely overlapping) with Axe Boy.

Deduction Node Adjustments:

  • Grave Keeper's deduction node 11: From quickly saving a Survivor and ensuring they get away safely while at ease 1/1/2 times to rescuing 1/1/2 Survivors from Rocket Chairs without receiving any damage.
  • First Officer's deduction node 7: From quickly saving a teammate and ensuring they get away safely 1/2/2 times to rescuing 1/1/2 Survivors from Rocket Chairs without receiving any damage.

  • Added a notification when switching between spectating camera stages in Custom Mode's match banning mode.
  • Added a countdown notification for the current stage when the Notebook is opened in Custom Mode's match banning mode.

Tier Adjustments:

  • The number of Rank Match Tiers has been adjusted from 6 to 8—Tier I, Tier II, Tier III, Tier IV, Tier V, Tier VI, Tier VII, and Peak Tier VII, corresponding to Survivors' worker bee, hound, elk, mammoth, griffin, unicorn, champion, and titan, as well as Hunters' tarantula, cobra, crocodile, saber-toothed tiger, manticore, one-eyed giant, evil dragon, and hydra. At the same time, tier models and icons will also be displayed in a brand new material. Tier I has 3 sub-tiers, Tier II has 4 sub-tiers, and Tier III, IV, and V have 5 sub-tiers. All players who have reached Tier VII will no longer be restricted by sub-tiers and will only be ranked based on the number of stars they have. Players who have obtained 25 stars in Tier VII will level up to Peak Tier VII, and the number of stars they have will continue to accumulate. As for points, players in Tier I to Tier III will still gain 20 points per star; those in Tier IV will now gain 20 points per star instead of 30 points per star; those in Tier V or above will now gain 30 points per star. Players who have reached Tier VII and Peak Tier VII will receive Rank Treasures of a higher level. They will also be awarded more fragments at the end of the season.
  • Players will still enter Super Rank Match by default once a Survivor player reaches Tier V. Duplicated characters are not allowed in Super mode and both factions will have to ban a character from the other faction. There are no restrictions on team size for Tier V Super Rank Match. Once players reached Tier VI and above, each team can only have a maximum of two players for ranking.
  • When there is a relatively large gap among teammates' tiers in a team for matching, the team's strength will tip toward the Survivors of higher tiers and the team will be matched with opponents of higher tiers.

Guild:

  • Some of the items in the Guild Shop will be reset in the new season.
  • From Season 12 onward, Guild members of the 10 Guilds with the highest Guild Activity Points and over 10,000 Personal Activity Points at the end of the Season will receive limited achievement labels and additional Guild Token rewards. (Only the top 3 Guilds will obtain the Guild Ranking Rewards for Season 11.)
  • Added a "Hide Costume Drawing Records" switch. Once activated, the player's costume drawing records will no longer be shown in the Guild Log.

Adjustments to how to obtain Season Portrait Frames:

  • From Season 12 onward, Rank Treasure I to Rank Treasure VIII will no longer drop the Season Portrait Frame corresponding to the tier directly, and a Portrait Frame Exchange Card will be dropped instead. Portrait Frame Exchange Cards can be used to redeem a random portrait frame available for redemption in the current season on the corresponding page. When a Survivor/Hunter reaches a certain tier in the current season, they can redeem season portrait frames for such tier and all tiers below.
  • The chances of getting a Portrait Frame Exchange Card is more or less consistent with the chances of getting a portrait frame from Rank Treasures previously. There must be a Portrait Frame Exchange Card in the first 7 Rank Treasures of the same tier. Please refer to the drop list page for details about the chances.

Adjustments to Axe Boy:

Abilities Adjustments:

  • External Trait "Corrupt Area": A Restful Road will now be formed between every 2 Peaceful Pines, and as a Survivor leaves the Corrupt Area, 1 Resentful Soul will also leave the area to possess and revolve around them.
  • External Trait "Endless Growth": When a Survivor destroys a Peaceful Pine, it will either stop a Resentful Soul from possessing them or remove any Resentful Souls which possessed them.
  • Tier 0 ability "Dispel Souls": This ability can now be used even when there are Survivors who have been possessed by Resentful Souls nearby.
  • Tier 1 ability "Restful Road": Robbie can also use a branch (long-tap and drag the branch) to enable the Restful Road to extend forward with the branch. When the Restful Road reaches the end, a Peaceful Pine will be grown.
  • Tier 2 ability "Corrupt Breath": The movement speed of Survivors leaving the Corrupt Area will be significantly reduced for a short period of time.

Figures Adjustments:

  • Reduced the range in which Axe Boy can select Resentful Souls (50m -> 36m).
  • Increased the time required for Resentful Souls to spawn in the Corrupt Area (20s -> 30s).
  • Increased the width of the Restful Road (2m -> 3.4m) so that it's consistent with the special effects.
  • Reduced the cooldown for tier 1 ability "Restful Road" (25s -> 18s).
  • The movement speed boost of a Restful Road generated automatically between Peaceful Pines will be weaker than that of a Restful Road generated by tier 1 ability (1.5 times and 2 times respectively).
  • Axe Boy can now plant Peaceful Pines in most of the terrains.
  • Reduced the flying speed of Resentful Souls when attracted by Axe Boy (20 m/s → 16 m/s )

  • Improved the performance of the Corrupt Area. Now Survivors and Hunters can see the border of the Corrupt Area when they are within 15m from it.
  • When there are 6 Peaceful Pines in play now, the outline of the Peaceful Pine which was first generated will blink. (When another Peaceful Pine is planted, such blinking Peaceful Pine will be destroyed.)

Battle Adjustments:

  • If Bloody Queen is interrupted by a stun or other controlling abilities during the process of swapping positions with the mirror image, the swapping will fail.
  • Adjusted the vaulting motion of the Wildling in Riding State. The vaulting status judgment (whether he's inflicted by Terror Shock) will fit the action performance better.
  • Adjusted the warning area of the Violinist's Perpetual Motion so that it'll be consistent with the actual judgment and players standing between Terrifying String Music will no longer be hit by Terrifying String Music.
  • Adjusted the visible area of the Detention effect to avoid the situation where players can see the Hunter's model from afar but not the Detention effect.
  • The Entomologist is now available in Blackjack Mode.

Experience Improvements:

  • The duration of a player being bitten by the Patroller will be shown as a priority on the top left corner of Survivors' battle interface.
  • Improved the preparation process of the Single Training Mode. Once a player enters the matching room in the Single Training Mode, all AI characters will immediately begin to get ready. Tapping "Ready" will set off a 5s-timer to enter the game. The player can cancel before the timer is up.
  • Added a "Back" button in the matching room in the Single Training Mode. Players can tap the button to exit the Single Training Mode.
  • Room butler is now hidden in Super Rank Match Mode.

When the Post Dog is not delivering a letter, tapping the ability will enable the Post Dog to dash and pounce toward the direction of the screen while long-pressing the ability will enable the Post Dog to dash and pounce in a specified direction.

A Hunter's movement is reduced by 35% for 6 seconds while the Post Dog is pouncing them.

If the Post Dog fails to pounce on a Hunter during the dash, it will return to the Postman once the max dashing range is reached or it hits an obstacle. The Post Dog can still pounce on a Hunter on its way back to the Postman.

Whenever the Post Dog pounces on a Hunter, the ability will enter into a 45-second cooldown. If it fails to pounce on a Hunter, the ability will enter into a 10-second cooldown.

Added a skill description under the Pounce ability for the Post Dog.

Adjusted the Postman's decoding speed reduction from 8% to 5%.

2. The Dancer's slow setting on the music box is adjusted so that instead of reducing movement speed by 20%/30%/40%, action speed by 30%/40%/50%, and interaction speed by 8%/12%/16%, it will now reduce movement speed by 15%/25%/35%, action speed by 25%/35%/45%, and interaction speed by 6%/9%/12%.

3. The Dancer's fast setting on the music box is adjusted so that instead of increasing movement speed by 20%/30%/40%, action speed by 30%/40%/50%, and interaction speed by 8%/12%/16%, it will now increase movement speed by 15%/25%/35%, action speed by 25%/35%/45%, and interaction speed by 6%/9%/12% (decoding speed included).

4. The Dancer's external trait, Dancer, is removed due to ability adjustments.

"Run! I'm entering the dungeon!" will be replaced by "Run! Get away from the basement!"

  • The quick messages will return to normal upon leaving the basement area. When there's a dungeon close to a basement, the quick messages for dungeons will have priority.

Once the insects are assembled, the Entomologist can switch her camera and manipulate the swarm of insects to turn left or right, or move forward.

Hunters can disperse the swam of insects by attacking twice (without triggering attack recovery).

Patch 6.18.20 - June 18, 2020
Events:

200 Million Visitors Celebration Event:

To celebrate this milestone of reaching 200 million visitors and giving our thanks to all our players, we are offering new rewards this week!

  • Event Duration: From June 18, 2020 after maintenance (NA-EU servers open on June 18, at 7:30) to June 25, 2020 23:59:59 (server time)

New Map for Rank Mode:

  • Eversleeping Town is now available in Rank Matches.
  • Evenly distributed the number of Rocket Chairs in Eversleeping Town and adjusted the locations of some of the Rocket Chairs.
  • During the initial period after the Eversleeping Town has been added, we've lowered the chances of the map being matched in Rank Mode. At the same time, the lower the player's tier, the lower the chance of them getting matched with this map.

About the Tram in Eversleeping Town:

  • Damage dealt by the Eversleeping Town tram is categorized as "carrier damage." Such damage will ignore shield-type abilities performed by the Seer, the Gardener, the Wildling, etc. Survivors who have been hit will be knocked down, and Hunters who have been hit will be stunned for 8s. Watch out for the tram!
  • Survivors on the tram can only be hit by Hunter abilities that ignore the effect of terrains, including the Bloody Queen's mirror image, the Ripper's Fog Blade, etc.

Battle

  • Lowered the matching chances of White Sand Street Asylum and Golden Cave in Match Mode.
  • The Cowboy can no longer focus on a target through tiny gaps (no longer able to lasso through the gap in the deserted area at the exit gate in Arms Factory, while other locations remain unaffected).
  • Reduced the decoding process punishment from 4% to 2% when Survivors failed to calibrate a cipher machine.
  • Adjusted the display rules governing the outline of exit gates in all maps and all modes. The outline of an openable exit gate will now be displayed to the Survivors at all times.
  • Adjusted the location of Rocket Chairs in the basement of Moon River Park in Duo Hunters Mode so that it makes logical sense.
  • Improved the hit judgment when Survivors are slowly vaulting over windows so that their actual locations will fit the visual performance better.
  • Added a label for the location of the dungeon under the "View Map Information" function so that players can now view such location in Custom Mode.
  • Added the option to view spawn points, Cipher Machines, and dungeon information in the Golden Cave and White Sand Street Asylum maps.
  • When the Violinist's abilities are muted during Performance Mode, the Performance Mode will be terminated and tier 1 ability "Rhapsody" will enter cooldown.
  • Removed the limitation for the Violinist's tier 0 ability - Sonata: When the vertical distance between two music notes exceeds a certain limit, Terrifying String Music cannot be generated.
  • When the Photographer's Camera World is activated, graffiti outside the Camera World will be copied into the Camera World. For the duration of the Camera World, new graffiti created by Survivors and Hunters will not be displayed in the alternative world.
  • When a Survivor alerts a crow while the Photographer's Camera World is activated, the crow in the alternative world will not be alerted.
  • Adjusted the collision judgment of some sunken walls in the Red Church, so that the Gamekeeper's hook can no longer go through some of the higher walls. At the same time, the Wildling and the Acrobat can no longer jump over these walls.
  • Adjusted the effect of Survivors when they're hit while riding the lift. When Survivors in the lift are hit by damage abilities such as the Gamekeeper's Suffocation, the Ripper's Fog Blade, the Soul Weaver's Spinning, the Feaster's tentacles, etc., the Survivors' lift-ride will be terminated and they will return to the ground.
  • Hunters can no longer use "Just Deserts" in Rank Matches.

2. Horsefly Effect: When there is a Hunter within the range of 18 meters for 8s, Pallet dropping speed is increased by 8/14/20% (expanded the effective trigger range; buff will vanish within 3s of leaving the range).

3. Catfish Effect: Changed to a new talent "Savior Complex" - After rescuing Teammates from Rocket Chairs, obtain a 5/10/15% movement speed boost for 3s.

4. Curiosity: In addition to the original effect, when there are 3 Cipher Machines left which have not been completely decoded, the outline of the 3 Cipher Machines will be shown at the same time for 5s (5 Cipher Machines for Duo Hunters Mode).

5. Switched the locations of Horsefly Effect and Herd Mentality.

6. Switched the locations of Distress and Mech Elite.

  • Hunter Talents:

Cat and Mouse: The talent is now changed to new talent "Quenching Effect" - Within the first 50s of a match, if the Hunter's presence is not obtained through means other than Insolence, all of the Survivors' outlines will be shown for 5s (in Blackjack Mode, the default "Cat and Mouse" talent will be changed to "Rage Lv. 1").

2. Wither: When a Survivor is placed on a Rocket Chair and the Hunter is more than 12 meters away, the Hunter's normal attacks will reduce Survivor's acceleration effect when attacked by 10/15/20% (the distance restriction and the extent of the acceleration effect reduction are both reduced).

3. No Survivors: Within the range of 30 meters from a knocked down Survivor, each free-moving Survivor will increase the Hunter's attack recovery speed by 8% with a maximum of 3 stacks (the effective trigger range is expanded and the extent of the attack recovery speed bonus is reduced).

  • [External Trait - Terrifying Melody]

Antonio plays out terrifying music with all the melody in the world.

Survivors hit by Antonio's abilities will be infected with multiple stacks of [Demon Notes].

[Demon Notes]: Survivors' movements are affected by the music resounding in their ears. They need to find a quiet place to calm down. 1/2/3 stack(s) of Demon Notes will decrease the movement speed by 4%/8%/12%, and decrease the decoding and healing speed by 15%/30%/50%.

Where there are no other Survivors within a 24m radius, the infected Survivor can calm down through meditation and remove the effect of the Demon Notes.

  • [Ability - Tier 0 - Sonata]

Antonio plays the first Music Note at the target location. He can use his ability to play a second Music Note in 5s. The two Music Notes will fly to the target location and resonate to generate [Terrifying String Music].

[Terrifying String Music]: Stays on the field for 13s and only deals damage when it's generated. Survivors who are hit will suffer damage equal to 1 normal attack plus 1 stack of Demon Note. When these Survivors touch the same String Music later, another stack of Demon Note will be added with no damage suffered. There is a 5s buffer for the String Music to add a stack of Demon Note to the same Survivor.

  • [Ability - Tier 1 - Rhapsody]

Antonio performs for 9s: During the crazed performance, he can move during the backswing of normal attacks and charged attacks. His attacks won't collide with scene features. At the same time, he will also send out an additional [Terrifying Music Note] along with each attack.

[Terrifying Music Note]: Music Notes that ignore the terrain and keep on flying, adding 1 stack of Demon Note to the Survivors hit.

  • [Ability - Tier 2 - Perpetual Motion]

Within a 20m radius of the Terrifying String Music, Antonio can bring out his bow and play out String Music, vibrating and creating 10 scattered and fleeting pieces of String Music. Survivors hit by the String Music will suffer damage equal to 1 normal attack. Survivors in the areas between the pieces won't be affected.

New Map:

  • Added notifications for the train in Eversleeping town: Players can now receive notification of the train's arrival time in real time countdown at stations. When the train is arriving, players near the tracks will be warned.

Event Period: May 21, 00:00:00 - May 21, 23:59:59 (Server Time)

Battle Adjustments:

  • New rules will be applied to character B&P in Five-Player Matches. The number of characters that can be banned will be determined by players' highest tier in Five-Player Matches. Also, players at Tier III or above cannot choose the same character.

When the highest tier is between Tier III 5 and Tier III 1, Hunters can ban 1 Survivor character, while Survivors cannot ban any Hunter character.

When the highest tier is between Tier IV 5 and Tier IV 1, Hunters can ban 2 Survivor characters, and Survivors can ban 1 Hunter character.

When the highest tier is Tier V 5 or above, Hunters can ban 3 Survivor characters, and Survivors can ban 2 Hunter characters.

  • Improved the generation logic of Priestess' Straight Passage so that it can't pass through upright pallets or certain areas that are too narrow. Given the number of adjustments required, we'll perform the improvements for scenes in batches. The Red Church will be adjusted this week.
  • Added certain features in basements so that they look more fitting as inaccessible areas. As such changes will make the patch too large, only the Sacred Heart Hospital will be optimized this week.

  • Adjusted the effect of Mechanic's External Trait "Cowardly." The effect has been changed from a 45% decrease in decoding and gate-opening speed to a 15% decrease in decoding and gate-opening speed. The stacking effect has been changed from the capability to be stacked multiple times to stackable up to 2 times.

Priestess

  • Adjusted the mechanism in relation to Priestess' Ultra-Long Passage. When a Survivor's residual image is hit by a Hunter, the Survivor will now be visible to the Hunter for 10s.

Mercenary

  • Adjusted the default usage of Mercenary's Elbow Pads from 5 to 4.

Guard 26

  • Increased the action speed of Guard 26 when vaulting over windows and destroying pallets.
  • Survivors who are bombed by Guard 26 can now rescue teammates from Rocket Chairs immediately.

Wu Chang

  • Removed the mechanism that refreshes Wu Chang's cooldown on Summon and Infinite Nirvana when entering Tier II.
  • Adjusted the judgment logic of White Guard's regular attack and Black Guard's charged attack by shortening the tail-end of judgment by 0.04s and 0.14s respectively so that they fit the action better.

Gardener

  • Added a new effect to Rocket Chairs that have been destroyed by the Gardener. The countdown speed of all Survivors on these Rocket Chairs is now decreased by 10%.

Lawyer

  • Removed the External Trait "Charm."
  • Added an External Trait "Heartless": With lies running through his blood, the Lawyer is never shaken by Terror Shock in any interactions.
  • The Lawyer's consumption will increase when reading a map. He can consume a certain amount of durability to open the map and see the outlines of Cipher Machines, Exit Gate, Survivors, and the Hunter. (Cipher Machines with over 50% decoding progress and opened Exit Gates will change color from yellow to blue.)
  • Adjusted the Lawyer's Trait "Weak." His vaulting speed has been adjusted from a 15% decrease to a 10% decrease.

Dream Witch

  • Survivors carrying the Witch's mark will have a violet mark labeled on the portrait.

  • Adjusted the Magician's movement speed bonus when using Decoy from 30% to 40%.

Explorer

  • Added a New skill: The Explorer has heightened senses when transformed into a tiny Lilliputian and can tell the incoming direction of Hunter within a certain radius.
  • When the Explorer is placed on a Rocket Chair while carrying Password Pages, the Password Pages will be dropped automatically. All teammates will be alerted about the dropped Password Pages, and they can go pick them up.

Combat Optimizations:

  • Improved the generation logic of Priestess' Straight Passage so that it can't pass through upright pallets or certain areas that are too narrow. Given the number of adjustments required, we'll perform the improvements for scenes in batches. Moon River Park,Leo's Memory and Lakeside Village will be adjusted this week.
  • Improved the hit judgment of Axe Boy's Resentful Soul under certain circumstances. The hit judgment of Resentful Soul will now fit the actual path better when there are Rocket Chairs with Survivors on them nearby.

  • Adjusted the duration of Mad Eyes' fences near dungeons. The duration of fences near an activated dungeon will decrease in duration while inactivated fences near a dungeon will not be affected.
  • Added certain features in basements so that they look more fitting as inaccessible areas. As such changes will make the patch too large, only the Arms Factory map will be optimized this week.
  • Modified the settings interface in battles, and added an entrance to settings for custom battle controls. Players can now modify settings during battle.
  • Standardized some of the descriptions in the rules for Duo Hunters mode: Removed the description of the old talent "Fallen Misfortune", standardized the descriptions of secondary skill "Abnormal" and talent "Detention."
  • Modified the description for Grave Keeper's External Trait "Dig to Escape" so that it fits the actual effects better.

Experience Optimizations:

  • Improved the snowflake effect in Leo's Memory, and added a switch for high, low, and off settings. Due to performance restrictions, some devices can only accommodate low effect setting (the snowflake effect is only available on devices with the latest patch installed).

  • Adjusted the model size of all Herald's costumes in the Display Interface.

March[edit | edit source]

Patch 3.26.20 - March 26, 2020
New Essence:
  • Season 10 Essence 2 is officially available this week. New Costume updates include Prisoner's S Costume - The Viper, Enchantress' A Costume - "Guide" and Dream Witch's A Costume - Serpent. Obtain S Costume - The Viper to obtain the all-new Survivor "Prisoner" for free. This character is currently unavailable in Rank Matches, Duo Hunters Mode and Blackjack Mode.

New Character:

  • A New Survivor - "Prisoner" (Luca Balsa) has joined the Manor. Obtain Season 10 Essence 2 S Costume - The Viper to unlock this Character for free (This Character is currently unavailable in Rank Matches, Duo Hunters Mode and Blackjack Mode);
  • [External Trait - Circuit Control]
  • The "Prisoner" is extremely familiar with the electric circuits under the Manor. He can modify the wires to alter the connection of the Cipher Machines. Once connected, the transmission of Decoding Progress between Cipher Machines is enabled.
  • [How to use]
  • Tap item to use. The "Prisoner" envisions the distribution of Cipher Machines in his head and changes the wiring to adjust the connection status between Cipher Machines.
  • [Connection]
  • The "Prisoner" can connect two inactive Cipher Machines and form a Connection, with a cooldown of 30 seconds. Each "Prisoner" can only generate 1 Connection, and there can only be 2 Cipher Machines on each Connection. All Survivors will be able to see the Connection. When Survivors decode a Cipher Machine on a Connection, they can transmit a certain percentage of their Decoding Progress to another Cipher Machine. During the transmission, their Decoding Speed will be decreased by the same transmission percentage.
  • Survivors can adjust the transmission percentage within the range of 0% to 48%. At the same time, due to deterioration of the circuit, some of the transmitted Decoding Progress will be lost (without affecting one's decoding speed). The farther away the connected Cipher Machines are, the bigger the loss will be, ranging from 10% to 20%.
  • Connections can be destroyed by Hunters. The Cipher Machine on a destroyed Connection is unable to reconnect for 45 seconds. If a Cipher Machine is activated in a Connection, the Connection will become invalid automatically.
  • [External Trait - "Conductor"]
  • [Charge Accumulation]
  • That incident changed the Prisoner's body composition and made him a "Conductor" capable of accumulating electric charges. When the "Prisoner" decodes a Cipher Machine in a Connection, an electrical area will be formed as a result of electric charges focusing around the Cipher Machine. When Hunters enter such an area for a long time, they will be electrocuted and stunned.
  • With each electrocution, Hunter's resistance to electric charges is permanently increased so that the stun duration of the Hunter will decrease until it drops to 0. When a Connection becomes invalid or destroyed, the electrical area will disappear with it.
  • [Enhanced Charges]
  • Due to his unique body composition, the "Prisoner" will recharge when he enters the electrical area. Once the recharge is completed, he can release severe electric currents 1 time. The severe electric currents will send an Electric Shock towards Hunters nearby and stun them for 1 second.
  • As the currents of Electric Shock is significant, it won't be affected by Hunters' resistance to electric charges.
  • [External Trait - Super Circuit]
  • To play it safe, the "Prisoner" set the connection between the two Exit Gates in advance. While the Exit Gates are opened, the coded lock will connect automatically, allowing transmission of the Decoding Progress between the two coded locks.
  • As the connection between Exit Gates is quite complicated, the transmission ratio of the Connecting Passage can only be adjusted by the "Prisoner" within the range of 0% to 48%. At the same time, due to deterioration of the circuit, the transmitted Decoding Progress is lost at a constant 15%.
  • Hunters can destroy the connection between the Exit Gates. Once it's destroyed, the "Prisoner" will no longer be able to connect again.
  • [External Trait - Obsession]
  • The decoding speed of the "Prisoner" is increased by 10% when decoding a Cipher Machine on a connection. Once a calibration fails, his rigid time is decreased by 30%.
  • However, such Obsession also weakens the Prisoner's perception of his surroundings, such that the distance of his detection of the Hunters is decreased by 20%.

Event:

  • Eternal Forest Event: Under the collective efforts of all participants, we have successfully revived the Eternal Forest. For those who have uncovered all the secrets of Eternal Forest, we hereby offer you a "Standby Motion Unlock Card" as a token of our appreciation. Once again, thank you for your contribution to the revival of Eternal Forest.

Adjustments to mobs in Golden Cave:

  • Dear player, we have looked into the issue of frame rates in Golden Cave and concluded that it was caused by the mobs' performance consumption. As a temporary solution, we will hide the mobs in that scene for the time being. Once the issue is fixed, the mobs will become available again. Thank you for your understanding!

Battle Adjustments:

  • Adjusted the display mechanism of the Embalmer's coffin. Survivors can now see the coffin placed by the Embalmer;
  • Improved the hit detection of Herald's regular attack, charged attack, and attack while holding a balloon. Furthermore, the duration of the attack backswing while holding a balloon is also reduced;
  • Improved the special effect displayed by Priestess' in Ultra-Long Passages when shown from a distance. The outline of the Ultra-Long Passage can now be clearly seen from a farther distance;
  • Reduced the completion difficulty of Priestess' Achievement Point "Displaced Collapse";
