Patch 522.3 - The Majestic Kraken hits the Shores!

Posted on February 10th, 2021 10:24 PM EST

Ahoy Pathfinders!

A new ship will be sailing into harbor with the new patch.The “Majestic Kraken” will be available from the ship salesman, it's a streamlined vessel that not only looks deadly but packs quite the punch if she gets her tentacles on you. That's because she's touting 24 cannons that provide 50% more damage. The Kraken will be similar to the previous Ramming Galley, with custom ship compartment load outs and repairable via the Patch Kit. So gather up your doubloons and release the… you know the rest.

In other highlights of the patch, along with a few more bug fixes, we've also taken another pass at the glider suit so you can sail the skies, for a reasonable amount of time.

You get a blueprint, you get a blueprint, you get a blueprint... You guessed it, blueprint drops will be doubling and counts required are going down. So, go get your craft on.

Lastly, accordion music will wake creatures up faster after being tranquilized. Lederhosen and polka dancing are not required, but it couldn't hurt.

Community Surveys

Last patch, we asked our fellow pathfinders to take part in a community survey that would help the Atlas team gain better insight on the wants and needs of our community. Needless to say, we were overwhelmed by your participation and feedback and will be taking a lot of it into consideration. We would like to genuinely thank all who participated. To continue this series of engagement, we will have another community survey in the near future, this one will address recent concerns around ship construction and customization. We look forward to hearing more of your input and appreciate your support.

  • Weapons: 24 Standard Cannons (150% Damage)
  • Max Level: 60
  • Sail Points: 6.0
  • Repair Resource: Patch Kit
Accordion
  • Playing the Accordion in Free Play Mode quickly reduces the torpidity of nearby wild creatures, allowing them to wake up much faster after being tranquilized
    • The radius of effect can be increased by unlocking the Inspiring Music skills in the Music and Dance tree
Armored Docks
  • Quality Blueprints for Small and Large Armored Docks have been added to loot drops
    • These have two stats: Durability (Total Health) and Effectiveness (Damage Resistance)

  • Updated how quality is derived on Cannons
    • Quality is determined primarily based on Damage Percent

    • Stat values rolled are unchanged (same values should be generated, but quality of BP may be different)

    • Iron is the most common metal now, and may be found in rocks
    • Other metals are no longer found in stone but may still be mined from metal nodes
    • Geodes may now drop from rock in all areas. Using a Geode will destroy it and may give some limestone, rock salt, and/or a small amount of different gems and crystals. Geodes may only be gathered by hand or with Tames, not with the Quarry or Farmhouse
  • Bug Fix: An icon for the Geode has been added
Ships
  • Patch Kit repair time reduced from 5 to 3 seconds
  • Projectiles fired from Cannons in Gunports no longer explode if they hit the water's surface immediately after firing

  • Painting has not been implemented for the Ramming Galley and Majestic Kraken and attempting to do so will result in some cosmetic errors.

Final Note

Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development. Anything discussed is only up to date as of the moment it is posted. Features and changes that ultimately make it to the next patch, as well as timing, may be different from what was previously discussed.

As always, we appreciate the suggestions and feedback from the community. Please keep them coming! Thank you for all of your support! :)

Happy Sailing,
- ATLAS Crew
