Content Update 1.9 - ELECTRON, Legendary Chests, +more!


#1

Welcome to Content Update 1.9!

And no, we don’t mean the Minecraft update that completely butchered PVP for everybody. This patch we’re rolling out a new undead kit with a skill gem to help you battle against teams and groups of players, legendary chests, market adjustments, and a pretty big handful of adjustments to some various skills. Let’s jump right into things!

ELECTRON - ACTIVATED!

The Electron is made of pure energy that has manifested into a pirate character! This supercharged NPC has brought with them some shocking powers that the residents of Port Nolem had yet to discover before!

New Skill Gem: SHOCK

Shock is a crowd control skill gem. The more players that are nearby you (after 2), the more damage you deal. This new gem can be countered by Elemental Endurance. Damage is decided by the new /skill, Static.


Legendary Chests!

Our first special chest type in Uncharted. Legendary Chests have a rare chance to replace an existing chest in the Open Seas at random! When a legendary chest appears, we’ll make sure to let everybody online know.

Collecting Legendary Chests

Legendary Chests will show as a flaming ender chest in the Open Seas when they spawn. Hold right click on it like you would any other treasure chest to pick it up!

Legendary Chests are jampacked with loot: They contain 20 items all of rare quality or better, plus one guaranteed legendary item each time you open it! Just set it down on your island and see what’s inside!

Unlocking Legendary Chests

Legendary chests that are collected are LOCKED by default. To unlock a legendary chest, bring it to Chester. After a short waiting period, your chest will be ready to open.

First of many special chests!

We have plans to roll out new special chests in the future, like those that can only be obtained from successful raids or found in rare future dungeons. Stay on the look out!
