The 'Punches and Potions' Patch is Coming to Trove
Full patch notes are available here.
Hamburg, November 23, 2023 – gamigo has announced that Trove's latest update, Punches and Potions, will go live for PC on November 23. The patch will include two new tradeskills and a new user interface.
New User Interface – Effects Viewer Window
Currently, any visible 'effects' on players are shown as an icon below the XP bar. The Punches and Potions patch will introduce a new and highly requested Effects Viewer window which will allow players to view currently active effects.
Players will also be able to scroll through a list of class-based effects, read the effects and, in some cases, even remove the effects.
New Tradeskill – Mysticism
Existing professions in Trove include Gardening, Ringcrafting, Runecrafting, and Crystallogy. The Punches and Potions patch will introduce Mysticism, which will allow players to find recipes for buffs, potions, and (rarely) scrolls through disparate world activities, as well as from the Mystic Reagent Stash.
Players pursuing this profession will collect mana, a resource that spawns in all adventure worlds, though it is only present in three biomes at a time. Each week, mana will begin to spawn in one new biome, and leave one old biome behind.
Mystics in training may also want to invest in the new Mystic Madness pack, with collectables and Mystic Reagent Stashes to boost their progress.
New Tradeskill – Martial Arts
Players will loot collect existing trophies to receive soul tangles of the corresponding NPC types and build Bad Karma. Performing Acts of Service such as quests or activities on behalf of the Neon Punch Club will build Good Karma.
By combining Good Karma and Bad Karma, players will craft shouts, stances, and mantras.
Shouts and Stances will be consumed when a character uses specific ability types and will give mini-buff-esque short duration effects. Mantras, on the other hand, will give players a short duration buff without being consumed when using a specific animation state. Mantras are consumed only when converted into a Litany effect at the Relic of Preservation.
