Patchnotes via Steam Community

G’day our desert travelers!

Since the last update, we’ve kept hearing feedback from y’all, and devoted our efforts to adding new content and optimizing the gameplay experience. Now please meet our new character Spirit Witch, together with new quest lines about NPCs Mathali and Umara, the inventory sorting functions and more!

Spirit Witch Coming to the Desert!

Spiritmancer is always ranking one of the player-favorite roles, and we’ve kept receiving the expectation for adding a female Spiritmancer in-game from the community. And now our new heroine Spirit Witch is available in-game! For this time, players will be the apprentice of Storm Archmage, and the story follows the adventures for becoming the most powerful and skilled Spiritmancer. In addition to her all-new skill pages and storylines, you can explore a series of new gameplay elements exclusive to this character!

By playing the role of Spirit Witch, you are able to randomly skip the combat with bandits by using her arcana, or, recruit them as your troop. Also, you could have fun with her skill of crafting various potions with items in your inventory at the later stage.

In addition to featuring the new character in-game, here come new quest lines of NPCs Mathali and Umara for you to explore.

Pack Up Everything Nicely

Since we continuously received feedback that the sorting function in the inventory is highly expected among the players, by restructuring the inventory system and making lots of changes on the user interface, items now are sorted by types and much more clear to view items in your bag. And especially, we designed a storage area for travelers' food items.

No More Getting Lost

In addition to having your bag better organized, we optimized the quest index as well. Travellers now are able to view and track the quests by clicking “L” as the default hotkey. The compass mark on the mini-map will help tell your current tracking quest with its location info.

And lastly, as our following roadmap, we will commit to achieving a major update including more character stories and side quests. We are also planning to work on enabling playing with controllers, optimization on the gameplay, more interaction with NPCs and other contents that are highly anticipated by you guys, and will share our future development plan with you promptly.

As always, you are welcome to report the in-game issues encountered or give any your suggestions for Sands of Salzaar, join us on Discord or contact us through indie@xd.com.
