Community Crunch 239: TLC 3 Update!

In this edition of the Community Crunch, we’ll be giving you more details on the upcoming TLC 3 patch and taking a look at some amazing community art.

TLC 3 Update
Excitement is ramping up and we’re anxious to share more details on the creature improvements we’ve been working on. In addition to the creature upgrades we’ll been sharing, there’s more polish, balance, and quality of life updates in store for the upcoming TLC patch.

Woolly Mammoth

Recently we gave you a peek at the visual upgrades of the Woolly Mammoth but it’s abilities have also seen an upgrade. The Mammoth comes marching in with new attacks and a buff that’s enabled by war drums. We have a feeling you will like the sound of that!

New AbilitiesWar Drum Saddle and Buff

  • 1 additional passenger seat on a saddle that comes equipped with a war drum that must be played to maintain an AoE buff that improves stamina regen and makes them immune to fear.

New AttacksTusk Sweep

  • Sweeps tusks left or right to gather and harvest thatch

Trunk Trumpet

  • Emits a trunk roar that does an AOE debuff to all enemies within range

Foot Stomp

  • Mammoth rears up and then puts all of its weight into a forward “slam” with its front legs to directionally knock back enemies and gather wood

Trunk Grab

  • Similar to the Karkinos’s grab, it is able to grab, hold, and release smaller targets

Stegosaurus

Primarily known as a harvester, the Stegosaurus will be seeing visual upgrades and an expanded toolset that makes it hard to resist.
