Aside from the big increase in experience bonus, the update will fix a bug that rendered the screen reader unable to read enemy names. Lorath’s Polearm and Strange Amulet items from the Missing Pieces quest can now be picked up even after dropping them and re-entering town while mounted. Remembering the Goose quest’s progression will no longer be blocked if the player teleports using the Town Portal or exits the game.

The Retching Mass event should reward Gold as intended upon completion. Another bug where leaving the area in the middle of Aneta’s dialogue with Vera blocked progression in the Poisoned Hearts quest has been fixed. Quest and event bugs are perhaps the peskiest of all, but players should at least be free of some of them, as they will be dealt with once the update goes live.

Moving along to some other fixes, the dialogue option for Kres should display properly after the update. A bug that caused the Season journey’s completion percentage in the Season menu to show the progression of previously viewed chapters rather than the active one will be fixed. Players will no longer be bothered by unexpected notifications showing their inventory is full.

After update 1.1.4, players should receive credits upon completing a Malignant Tunnels Season’s journey objective, even if the heart at the end is not captured. The voice-over lines for several taunt emotes should now play as intended; these include “I Will End You,” “You Will Die!,” “I Will Rip Your Soul Apart,” “Die!,” and “Prepare For Oblibion.” Other than that, the update will also bring various performance, stability, and visual fixes.
