Manual


Version history

Version Changes
0.9.5
  • Added "Scroll of Wisdom Fragment", "Transmutation Shard", "Alteration Shard" and "Alchemy Shard" currency items which can only be obtained from vendors. These cannot be used in their shard form, but when they reach their maximum stack size, they automatically transform into the appropriate type of normal currency item.
