Thanks for your patience during the downtime folks. We are now pleased to Release 244 with you all. You can see the full, detailed patch notes in James’ post over here
TL:DR We’ve focused heavily on stability and Quality of Life changes for this release, and content-wise, the main focus is on the new Gleambow Racing release!
We’ve made some fixes we’ve wanted to turn our attention to for a while, including the way smart stacks behave.
It’s nearly here, folks! Gleambow Racing begins today!
Hopefully, you’ll have been following our reveals and teasers on social media over the past week or so, but let’s get it all in one place.
If you’re new to Gleambow Racing, then this post here goes over everything you need to know about the event. So, what’s new this time around?
This time, Gleambows will spawn on Rugged and Inhospitable Lush worlds, where they will replace all regular Meteorites. These will, of course, be accompanied by the customary Gleamtrunks, which will attempt to pull citizens off the meteorite. These creatures are no mere annoyance! They’ll drop Mutated Gleam Sacs once defeated, which can be crafted into new food items to provide 3 exciting new buffs!
Gleamberry Juice significantly increases the radius of your character’s pickups. This ‘magnet’ effect will be tremendously helpful with all gathering tasks. The Gleambow Jelly bestows the super fun ‘Jelly Jump’ buff, which boosts your jump and double jump height to incredible levels. This also reduces all fall damage for the duration of the buff.
Last but not least, the Gleampop will give Citizens the ability to walk on water, leaving a colourful trail of ice behind them! We can’t wait to see groups of keep Gleambow hunters, racing across the landscape with huge leaps and leaving icy trails behind them.
Elsewhere, we’ve got a brand new wearable, the Gleambubbler, which provides a fun visual effect around your character as they emit a stream of bubbles. This can be picked up in The Exchange as always.
Two brand new props are here for you to enjoy too! Perennial favourite Oorty gets a funky makeover, and there’s a shiny new Gleambow Trophy to show off in your Beacon.
If you just can’t seem to catch a Gleambow … then why not summon one! Our brand new Gleambow Augment can be fitted to a totem, then fired into the sky to spawn a Gleambow.
We’re super excited for this round of Gleambow Racing, and we hope you all are too! See you in there folks!
