Phoenix Labs have announced a new content addition coming to Dauntless as we get a preview of the "Fortune & Glory" update coming on July 16th. The short version to all this is that you're getting pirates in the game, along with a new challenge called Trials, new difficulty levels, additional features across the board, and some updates to the game in general. We have the details here for you with some screenshots of you in pirate gear before it's added to the game next week.
"Fortune & Glory" provides Slayers with a formidable new challenge in the form of Trials. The Trials experience is a new gameplay offering from Lady Luck, an enigmatic figure who arrives in Ramsgate with a mysterious island in tow. Trials will pit adventurous Slayers against dangerous, modified Behemoths and all-new environmental challenges, like terrain-transforming pests. With the clock ticking through each hunt, it will be up to Trials challengers to prove that they can execute under pressure. Trials are split into two difficulty levels: "Normal" and "Dauntless." Completing "Normal" difficulty Trials nets Slayers with Steel Marks, used to purchase unique rewards such as weapon mods and alternate special attacks, while completing "Dauntless" difficulty Trials rewards Slayers with Gilded Marks: currency used to purchase exclusive cosmetic rewards that showcase more advanced accomplishments. Both Steel and Gilded Marks are exclusive to Lady Luck's shop, and can only be earned through Trials.
Slayers can see how they stack up to Trials competition by viewing the Wall of Champions outside Lady Luck's shop in Ramsgate. The wall displays a list of the top performers in both solo and group hunts. And because Trials rotate on a weekly basis, there's always a chance for Slayers to see new names — or even their own — on the wall.
"Fortune & Glory" marks the beginning of the "High Skies" season in Dauntless. It will include two consecutive Hunt Passes complete with new and stylish content. The first Hunt Pass is marked by a swashbuckling pirate theme, and Slayers will quickly familiarize themselves with Lady Luck and her corsair fleet. "Fortune & Glory" offers 50 levels of content to unlock and numerous cosmetic and consumable rewards to earn. Slayers can look forward to more adventures and content as the "High Skies" season continues later this summer.
