Game Breaking Inventory / Storage / Refining / Crafting management


Sorry if I did not make myself clear. I meant that the issue with the stacking makes it more likely to trigger the 500 unique items limit. We are working on a fix for items not stacking properly and other possible issues. Thank you for your patience.

The patch just came out and I've already found more than 20 bugs



Patch day can be a rough time, for sure. Issues pop up and the team is super actively looking for, tracking, and working to resolve bugs.

If you’ve found any bugs, please be sure to post them in the Bug Reports section with as much detail as you can. The more info we have the better we will be able to identify root causes and address issues.

Cheers friends!
