< Blades: Patch

Released on August 29, 2019.

We're excited to announce today's newest addition to Blades: Update 1.3! In this update, you'll find new quests, and many bug fixes, new features, and improvements—such as the option to train with Staki and fixing the issue where weapons would freeze mid-swing. The full patch notes are below!

Patch HighlightsEdit

New Questline: A dark, murderous menace is threatening the kingdom. Using your wits and abilities, you must see through the intrigue and stop evil in its tracks. Once you reach level 31, you'll see a newcomer in town. Just make sure you've completed the High Treason and Cutting Off the Snake's Head quests.
New Questline: Gabrielle the conjurer needs your help! You must search for a fabled legendary Dwemer artifact… but of course, nothing is as easy as it sounds. You'll find Gabrielle once you've started the quest mentioned above.
New Quest: Reaching the very top of the wizard's tower is no easy task. Are you up for the challenge? You'll see this quest become available early on after completing the Hidden Mysteries.
