Right off the bat this patch marks the end of the Legacy of Crassus event. Alongside the end of that event there is a bunch of bug fixes for the game in the patch. One major area of focus was fixing bugs players were encountering with locked items. The full New World Update 1.8.4 Patch Notes released to the game’s Steam Community, but I have also included them for you to read below.


  • Fixed an issue that allowed players to bypass the PvP Faction Mission requirements and complete Patrol Territory quests.


  • Fixed an issue that allowed Abilities to be used multiple times without cooldowns.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed players to dodge more times than intended without consuming Stamina.


  • Fixed an issue that would cause Crafting to fail and deliver the message “Crafting attempt failed”.


  • The dev team fixed an issue that would cause the left Company pop-up to occur every time a player spoke to their Faction representative in the game.
  • Fixed an issue that caused locked items to display as bound to a player.
  • Fixed an issue that would allow locked items to be transferred to a bag on the ground if they were equipped.
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent locked items from being deposited into storage. Locked items will still not transfer using the “Transfer All“ button.
  • The developers fixed an issue that would cause players to receive the wrong message “Cannot drop mission items” when attempting to discard locked items from their inventory. The correct message “Cannot drop locked items” will now appear.
