Do you like using the Chain Blades in Dauntless? If so, you should download the latest update right away. That’s because Patch 1.9.4 implements an important fix for Chain Blades, specifically concerning the Reaper’s Dance.

The Chain Blades are a dual-wield, slashing-type weapon best known for their fast attacks, while also giving you the ability to pull yourself in to close the gap. It’s generally fun to use and it has a good selection of specials and mods you can choose from.

That said, there was a major bug with this weapon. For context, the Reaper’s Dance, one of the Chain Blades’ specials, allows you to perform a powerful spinning slam attack. This attack’s damage is greatly increased depending on how much Momentum is consumed.

Now, the bug in question is that the slam attack would only hit the air above the Behemoth and not the actual Behemoth itself. You know how frustrating it is when all that momentum is consumed and only for the attack to miss the intended target. The good news is that this bug has now been fixed. If you are a Chain Blades user, rejoice!

Aside from the major fix for Chain Blades, Patch 1.9.4 also brings new story quests and challenges every week. Be sure to head to the Orrery Camp on Crystal Island to begin.
