Following the Murakumo update, the latest patch of Wild Hearts made some hefty adjustments to the Claw Blade. The patch notes talk about these modifications while outlining some other fixes to improve the game’s overall stability. It’s worth noting that this update primarily focuses on elements related to the Claw Blade, along with some minor bug fixes.

As of this patch, the claw gauge will cease to decrease when performing a specific move with the claw lodged in a Kemono. Gauge consumption of the move has also been greatly reduced when used in that state. In addition, an issue where it was possible to continue the downward spin slash even after the gauge’s depletion has been rectified.

Furthermore, the power output of Wingblade Crescent Slash has been reduced. It is effectively a nerf but should not impact the viability of the weapon and certain builds. Invincibility frames have also been added at the beginning of the move when players have the claw lodged in a Kemono. In addition, the amount of Karakuri Thread generated by the Karakuri Katana has been increased.

Lastly, stamina consumption has been reduced when dodging with the Bow along with enabling the use of resonance to recover Karakuri Thread after performing a basic Karakuri combo attack. Beyond these gameplay adjustments, Wild Hearts’ latest patch rectifies some issues for improved stability.

The range issue pertaining to the Torch Basic Karakuri, the notification for food processing showing up regardless of its completion, and Talismans obtained from defeating a Murakumo only carrying a specific skill were resolved. In addition, armor images will now be greyed out on the production screen when players have insufficient items.

Wild Hearts launched with an unimaginable amount of performance issues. However, these do not detract from the game’s achievement—being an enjoyable experience. You can check out Electronic Arts‘ and Koei Tecmo’s take on the hunting genre on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC
