Players should also have a reduced chance of receiving gear for Javelins they don’t use.
BioWare’s Anthem received its latest update yesterday, but don’t expect any loot-related changes with this one. What it does bring is a reduced drop rate for gear on Javelins that you’re not using. It also ensures that the blank newsfeed is fixed and properly displaying messages when one enters the game.
Elysian Stronghold Caches will now have their rewards showing up immediately after a Stronghold is completed. It doesn’t remove Embers or other crafting resources from the loot pool, sadly. Other fixes are included for issues that would cause Nvidia highlights to crash and screen-shake when DLSS was enabled and motion blur disabled.
The full patch notes can be seen below. There’s still no update on new Freeplay events, guilds, or the new Stronghold, The Sunken, that’s supposed to be out this month. Then again, given reports of Anthem’s troubled and strenuous development, it might be for the best if BioWare takes the time to properly fix things.
