The Archos Herald, Issue 9 - Forging a Path!


Welcome to the 9th issue of The Archos Herald - your source for all the latest updates on Dark and Light’s development and community features!


Development Updates



This week, we put out a patch aimed to address a number of bugs and optimization issues. For full patch notes, click here. We’re still actively working on addressing a number of bugs, such as the recent issue with creatures disappearing as a result of spawn overflows. To help with our investigations, please remember to contact our dedicated Player Support team at our official support portal[].


Our plan moving forward is to continue working on additional content patches, like our Blackice Peaks update, on a regular basis, and weaving in patches dedicated to fixing bugs in-between content updates as needed. As always, head over to our official forums[] or /r/DarkandLight to share your thoughts and feedback on recent patches and the state of the game with our team!
