The TzekHaar Front World’s First Race
We have a winner!

Last week we launched a competition to see who would be the first to complete the front on Hard Mode - flawlessly. Hey, we know you all like a serious challenge.

Well congratulations are in order: give a round of applause to the amazing Lady Elisa! Slaying the champion of the Fight Kiln is no mean feat at the best of times, and you did it impeccably. We’ll be in touch shortly about your prize.

Thanks to all of you who raced to reach this red-hot milestone. Your combat skills are truly scorching!

Patch Notes
Fixes and improvements in this week's game update

TzekHaar Front


  • The Bad Exchange Rate achievement has been fixed.
  • TzKal-Zuk's seated rain fire attack will now reach players who are hugging the barrier
  • An entry for TzKal-Zuk kills has been added to the adventurer's log.
  • Adding further ammo to a quiver already holding the same type of ammo will now correctly update the stack, rather than replacing the existing amount.

    • The arrows are now consumed upon use.
    • The Sprout From Death effect now has a chance to trigger.

  • Updated the colour scheme for the Slayer creatures found within the Senntisten Sewers.
  • Fixed an issue with TzekHaar-Jad Souls not counting towards the Reaper Task.

Last Week's Hotfixes

  • Damage stacked on TzKal-Zuk as he is defeated can no longer cause multiple kills.
  • The TzekHaar Front intro cutscene now plays when clicking on the crater – no more sneaky TzekHaar attacks while you absorb that sweet lore!

  • Players can no longer bypass Zuk’s Hard Mode requirement by toggling another boss's hard mode
  • Omnipower damage now matches the written tooltip.
  • Additional hits from Wild Magic and Omnipower abilities now hit nearby targets when combined with the Greater Chain ability.

  • Resonant anima changes:
    • The TzekHaar creatures outside of TzKal-Zuk's arena now drop Resonant anima of Ful correctly.
    • Having the ring upgraded with a faction no longer decreases the amount of anima gained from bosses.
    • Increased the amount of anima the player gains from killing creatures within Senntisten.
    • Having the ring upgraded will now continue to drop anima at a 100% drop rate rather than the previous 1/6 chance.
  • A missing hiding spot in the "Fortunes" miniquest has been re-added allowing the miniquest to be completed.
  • Fixed an issue where Growth Surge could still be used on an adult legendary pet, wasting it.
  • Updated missing or misnamed items in the Player Log:
