Changelog for Patch 1.06 (added 20 September 2017):

We know that it can be frustrating to get duplicates as rewards in Combat Trials, and we wanted to thank everyone for their support until now, so we've added new masks in the Guidance HUB; rest assured we're also working hard at reworking the loot system and the end-game rewards, but in the meantime, we wanted to make new masks available to everyone. These masks are inspired by Devolver games, and we think they're pretty cool, so we hope you like them too ! These masks won't be there forever, so grab them while you can :)

Thanks again,

Changelog for Patch 1.07 (added 26 September 2017):

- We have identified a bug which caused animations to play incorrectly and hits not to be detected: this has been fixed and is included in the 1.07 update.
- From a gameplay side, we probably made too many changes at the same time; we have therefore reverted changes made to the dodge mechanic, and done some tweaks to ranges and guard impact of previously changed attacks.

Changelog for Patch 1.08 (added 26 October 2017):

Hi everyone!

We’ve just pushed the Halloween 1.08 update, so here is a fresh update on production!

The main objective of this update is to start giving better long term rewards for players who invest time and effort in Combat Trials:

The loot system has been reworked with the introduction of Rift Coins and Rift Disks: magical artifacts that will give items of various rarity levels.
The Prestige system will give rewards to players beyond level 60: Crystals are awarded at each Prestige level, which can be used to reassign Attribute Points and buy Rift Disks. Prestige levels are also displayed in Combat Trials intro videos.
We have updated the inventory with a new “sort” and “salvage” features allowing players to better manage their inventory and convert equipment pieces into Fragments, which can then be used to repair equipment i.e. convert “Aged” into “New”

This update is only a first step; we will develop these new systems further in the weeks to come, with other uses for Crystals and Fragments to be introduced: changing colors of equipment, purchasing specific items, changing the character’s appearance, acquiring new emotes…

Further down the line, we will also implement systems for competitive players, with leaderboards and ranked games - we are still working on the exact plans for this, but we will update as soon as we know more!

The art team has also kept busy, with new equipment sets, Absolver capes, and 6 new Halloween-inspired masks, dropped by Marked Ones, and also found in Rift Disks. To go with the spirit of the season, we have also created new temporary “night” settings for PvP maps! Since our last update we have also put a lot of effort into fixing as many bugs and issues as possible, mostly related to gameplay and network connection. Full release patch notes are below with additional details.

Two more things:
The game will be at a 20% discount on Steam for the duration of the Halloween sale, so if you have friends who were hesitant about getting the game, you can tell them that now might be a good time :)
We know that many players want to know when the 3v3 game mode is going to be released: we won’t give a precise date today, but it will be in November for sure, and we should give a more precise timing in the coming days. Stay tuned!

Thanks for your support,
Sloclap Team


- Prestige levels unlocked after level 60
- Rift Coins replace random loot drops in Combat Trials
- Rift Disks allow to get rarer equipments and weapons
- Win Crystals at each Prestige level
- Spend Crystals to reset attribute points
- Spend Crystals to acquire Rift Disks
- Inventory management: Sort by, Salvage and Repair.
- New equipment:
+ 4 new sets
+ 3 new Absolver Cloaks
+ 9 new masks, including 6 Halloween masks dropped by Marked Ones
- 1v1 maps are now in night mode (temporary)
- New “Bald” haircut available at character creation!


Parry :
- Almost all attacks, including thrust attacks, now require a specific parry direction to be countered (exceptions: Hadrunken, Obvious Slash and bare-hands Rush Attack for Stagger style)

Rush :
- Decrease rush acceleration
- Closer rush camera
- Rush attacks: increase stun duration
- Rush attacks: decrease knockback

Note: These are first steps to address fleeing behaviour.
Rush attacks were intended to counter players fleeing, but until now the player hit by a rush attack had the time to rush again directly after. With a longer stun and shorter knockback for the rush attacks, and a slower acceleration for the rush, the issue should be less present.
Also the new rush camera is closer to the character, so the player has not the whole vision of their surroundings, and it feedbacks more clearly when the character is rushing.

Camera :
- The camera position is now lower when close to walls.

Shockwave :
- Range 230cm -> 280cm (as before 1.06) BUT knockback now depends on distance to caster (from 280 when close to the caster, to 84 when at the limit of the range)

Items :
- Added rarity levels to all equipments
- Updated drop rates (Rift Coins and Rift Disks)


- [GAMEPLAY] 1v1 rematch : clear shards
- [GAMEPLAY] Shards cannot be filled in practice anymore
- [GAMEPLAY] Charging attacks now lose their property when parried
- [GAMEPLAY] Silence power cannot be used without a target
- [GAMEPLAY] Parrying a double hit attack doesn’t result in being hit by second hit anymore
- [GAMEPLAY] Fixed issue in which character finished in the wrong ending stance when being hit while changing stance
- [NETWORK] Fixed a bug in hit knockback resulting in some awkward teleportation
- [NETWORK] Fixed dodge position replication
- [SAVES]: The game now detects if save is not valid and rollbacks to previous save if needed
- [AI] Fixed a bug when AI would get stuck after a player’s successful dodge
- [SFX] Fixed issue with boss gate SFX sound was playing in PvP maps and during boss fights.
- [DESIGN] Loot drops in Rift Coins and Rift Disks now give items in different color variants

(̶A̶v̶a̶i̶l̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶n̶l̶y̶ ̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ ̶g̶a̶l̶a̶x̶y̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶n̶o̶w̶,̶ ̶I̶'̶l̶l̶ ̶u̶p̶d̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶p̶o̶s̶t̶ ̶o̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶l̶i̶n̶e̶ ̶d̶o̶w̶n̶l̶o̶a̶d̶ ̶w̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶a̶v̶a̶i̶l̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶a̶s̶w̶e̶l̶l̶)̶

Guess what? A new update which RUINS YET AGAIN THE PVE EXPERIENCE, for our "joy"!

Absolver 1.10 Update
Hi everyone,

Patch 1.10 will be available on PC and PS4 in a few hours tops; it's a small update with just a couple of minor changes to progression and economy, as well as a number of bugs that have been fixed (such as a crash that occurred when opening Rift Disks, for instance). We didn't communicate on 1.09 since it was only a couple of bugs also. More details below.

The whole team is focused on 3v3 game mode, and on adding features to the equipment and essence menus (such as allowing players to choose the color of their equipment, or acquiring specific weapons and gear with fragments). There will probably be another small update before 3v3 is live (this update will add an anticheat system, amongst other things); we will give more information and release dates very soon, so stay tuned !

All the best,
Sloclap team


Absolver 1.10 Update Patch Notes

- [Design] Lower XP gains when defeating Level 3 boss and beyond
- [Design] Higher XP gains in Combat Trials
- [Design] Cost of Rift Disks changed to 5 Crystals
- [Design] Marked ones have been reverted to their original form. Halloween masks now only available through Rift Disks.
- [Design] Cost of the Attribute Points reset changed to 3 Crystals

> The very high amount of XP given by Bosses made it too easy to farm XP and prestige levels in PvE, which was not the original intention, so this has been rebalanced. Combat Trials also now give more XP, so players will now win Prestige levels and Crystals faster. Rift Disks cost has also been updated to reflect this change.

1.10 and 1.09 also include a number of bugfixes to improve the overall experience.

U̶p̶d̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶a̶v̶a̶i̶l̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶o̶n̶l̶y̶ ̶t̶h̶r̶o̶u̶g̶h̶ ̶g̶a̶l̶a̶x̶y̶,̶ ̶a̶s̶ ̶f̶o̶r̶ ̶n̶o̶w̶,̶ ̶I̶'̶l̶l̶ ̶u̶p̶d̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶p̶o̶s̶t̶ ̶a̶g̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶o̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶l̶i̶n̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶s̶t̶a̶l̶l̶e̶r̶s̶ ̶b̶e̶c̶o̶m̶e̶ ̶a̶v̶a̶i̶l̶a̶b̶l̶e̶.̶

NOTE: For anyone not interested in the PVP in the slightest, I suggest AGAINST updating your game; 1.08 and 1.09 have better exp from marked ones, they still hold the halloween masks (should you still need to farm them), and most importantly, rift disks require only 3 crystals (you gain 1 each time you "level up" past 60). So, if you want to farm more items and get way more exp (which is already that much grindy), again, DON'T UPDATE.

I apologize for being a bit obnoxious on this post, but this update pissed me to a new level.

EDIT: Offline installer for 1.10 now available.

PS: I didn't test the update myself yet, as i'm still stuck with 1.08, but from my understanding the new anticheat system used is the EAC (easy anti cheat), which is easily recognized by AV as a malware (which well, it is, as it can function as both malware and keylogger). My best advice is to do some search before updating your game; Also, it seems that many people are getting their savegame wiped for unknown reasons, so making a backup is strongly recommended.

EDIT: Offline installers available too.

Absolver Downfall - September 25, 2018

---New Content---

Downfall PVE mode
Battle deep in the mines of Adal as a solo warrior or in online cooperative play, collecting Gleam from Prospects infected by Arcell, an Etheran bent on breaking the Fold’s containment.. The more Gleam you capture, the more powerful you become in your struggle to defeat the Corrupted, and even Arcell himself. Each run through the Mines and Temples is a unique path through a variety of challenges and situations, facing upgraded enemies, and three epic boss fights.

This mode is available in the Combat Trials menu to all players that reached the Absolver rank. Collecting Gleam in Downfall runs will allow you to unlock new items in the Essence Shop, as well as the Faejin Combat Style.
Faejin Combat Style

Inspired by Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, the Faejin Combat Style blends defense and offense with percussive strikes and fluid power. The new approach is a complex style for experienced Absolvers, featuring different defensive abilities that depend on both input and stances. Faejin has 26 attacks for bare hands and wargloves, alongside 15 sword attacks.

This Combat Style will be unlockable in Downfall PVE mode.

New Powers
Sharp Impact – Bare-hands deal cut damage during 20s
Unbreakable – A protective barrier coats your body during 5s. Protection level is increased, and enemy attacks don’t stun or interrupt your own attacks. All weapons hitting the barrier break on impact
Snatcher – A short burst of Tension released from the Shards stuns briefly and disarms your opponent, pulling their weapon towards you
Shadow Avoid – Enter in resonance with your Tension Shards and avoid all incoming attacks for a short duration. Enemies hitting your Shadow will be slowed down for 2s

You’ll be able to buy these new powers in the Essence Shop once your Gleam Level is high enough.

Absolvers who have reached the Disciple rank in a school (or who are Mentors of their own) can participate in School Challenges, by equipping all their School Content before heading to 1v1 Combat Trials. All wins representing one’s school count in the School challenges, with individual and collective performances of the schools bringing rewards every three weeks, at the end of the season.

For the occasion, the overall UI of the School system was revisited and we hope you’ll like it!

New Gear
Here are the names of the new sets you’ll be able to purchase from the Essence Shop.

- Karshi Leader
- Tear Tyrant
- Tear Commander
- Forest Healer
- Adalian Carpenter
- Essence Prospector
- Guide Scholar
- Guide Witness

- Tear Tyrant Sword
- Witness Sword
- Scholar Sword
- Arcell’s Sword
- Carpenter Wargloves
- Prospector Wargloves
- Gleam Crystal Wargloves

Our Mask Design Contest Winner, Ripan Assassin Mask will be available in this patch too :)

New Emotes and Intros
- Confused
- Mia Dance
- Make it rain
- Rock
- Paper
- Scissors

- Backstrike
- Warmup
- Leghold
- Duelstart

AI rework
All AIs in game have been reworked, so the changes detailed below will also impact the original NPCs and Bosses in the World!

Non exhaustive list of changes:
AIs fighting behaviours have been improved
AIs can now use Powers, they can also use Stagger and Faejin combat styles
AIs’ movements outside of combat have been improved: they can now use drop-downs and won’t try to attack players above them anymore

- New loading screen!
- Reward Screens have been updated in both 1v1 and 3v3
- AIs’ health gauge color feedback its difficulty
- Players can now toggle “Switch target on attack” in gameplay options.
- Resilience mechanic has been added. Player will not be interrupted by an attack if his Resilience Level is superior or equal to the attack power level.
- Attack power level is displayed in the attack details panel.
- New ways to earn fragments :
- Dropped by AIs in the open world
- Earnt in rift coins & disks


Revive has been reworked and the issue below shouldn’t appear anymore:
Reviving player should not become stuck if the revived or reviving player disconnects or is interrupted by hit.
A bug where you could skip a part of the Absorb to attack faster was fixed
Advantage frames had an overall debug to improve consistency
Guarding should be more reactive to player’s inputs
We also worked on the parried animation to improve the visual feedback indicating the timing when the player can launch an attack after
Quadrants overall usability has been improved: we put a lot of efforts into making the changing quadrant feature more intuitive and reliable
A lot of involuntary quadrant changes have been fixed, for example when the player was hit by an enemy, or when the player was not moving while the enemy moved around him
Character’s position is less misleading in specific situations
Front-left stance is now forced on all situations when changing target (except when you’re attacking or using a special ability at the same time)
Fixed various issues with stamina
Fixed the bug where the stamina could get stuck at 0
Fixed the bug where the stamina bonus could be gotten before spending stamina
Avoid: There are two states with the Avoid Special Ability
When avoiding at the right timing, and a “Ghost” of yourself appear, you made a successful avoid, have a Stamina refill and your opponent cannot goldlink
When avoiding at the wrong timing, it can happen that you still don’t get hit by the attack but if the ghost isn’t here, the special ability is not considered as successful, no stamina refill happen and your opponent can goldlink
Weapons: When dropping your weapon during a fall, the weapon won’t stay floating in the air anymore. It will either fall on the ground, or go back to the last “walking position” of the player if the ground is too far away
Parry: Feint into parry bug has been fixed. When feinting and quickly parrying, the parry was sometimes made in the wrong direction.
Shards: Shards sometimes not refilling when sheathing weapon bug is now fixed.

Overall navigation in the map improved: no more assets missing lights, better collisions
Character illumination is now better managed, visibility is thus improved in low luminosity areas (like the night 1v1 maps)
Improved overall stability for both the World and Combat Trials (crashes on some specific PC configurations, infinite loading screens)
Text typos were fixed
The character won’t be changing skin color randomly anymore
Remapping menu
Fixed a bug where the player couldn’t access the Social Wheel after changing its input

Absolver 1.26 Patch Note - October 11, 2018

Fixes the last "equipment disappearing bug" also:
Every player that has lost unique loot (listed below) from cairns and pickups spots in the Main Map will find in their inventory all the loots from those caches including (depending on if they had it in their save before or not):

- Silly Face Mask
- Lost Prospect Mask
- Folded Eyes Mask

Every player that has lost unique loot (listed below) from the bosses in the Main Map will find in their inventory the missing unique loot (depending on if they had it in their save before or not):

- Curved Sword
- Spike Turtle Wargloves
- Silan Mask
- Risryn Sword
- Risryn Overtop
- Absolver Cloak
- Cargal Shoulder
- Kuretz Shoulder
- Kuretz Overtop
- Kuretz Mask

Regardless, the game will also try to give back in players’ inventories the lost gear that it can find: Gear registered in presets, and gear currently equipped.
We didn’t succeed in finding a way to retrieve 100% of lost gears in the saves, so if the game detects that you were affected by the bug, you’ll also find in your inventory 5 Rift Disks.
