New World February Update Known Issues

February Update: Known Issues

191

Hello everyone! 

I was right about my prediction on “not opening your crates after the patch goes live”. T3 Smelter Aptitude Crates don’t provide new items, so you’ll not be able to get Smelter Gear yet. 

As for other huge bugs, the Mutated Orbs still have a 7 days cooldown, and there are problems with crafting stations if you use other than English languages.

February was a bug-fixing month, but we’re “losing our faces after teleporting” once again. But, well, we had 266 bugs in the January release and only 247 in February, so this is definitely progress.

As for me, I treat it in a humorous way, because such a repeatable and stable thing deserves its place in the history of game development. After all, bugs will be fixed soon.

Community Managers started the Great February Bug Hunt Event, and we already have the first results.

They do need our feedback right now. If you found any bugs, please post them in this Megathread.
This is the list of known issues for now:
