Flotsam Update 0.6.0 Makes Changes to Expertise and Leveling

Flotsam Expertise update is finally here, and it brings new features, changes, and of course, bug fixes. The developers have also fixed some issues found in older updates.

In Update 0.6.0, research is going to be a bit different. Having books as a requirement for research made it time-consuming. Now, drifters must complete tasks to give them experience and knowledge, which is needed to perform research. For every level a player achieves, they can assign a skill point to raise their expertise.

Some may think leveling up is a hassle, and the developers have thought about that as well. This is where the new mechanic "morale" comes in, where a drifter's morale affects their leveling speed. The higher the morale, the faster the leveling is.

  • The debuff of not eating or drinking has now merged with the morale modifier.
  • Morale modifiers can now affect other things, such as drifter attributes.
  • Drifters not drinking, eating or sleeping will get stackable debuffs that reduce certain attributes.
  • Drifters will now inform players if they are unable to perform their duties and why (mostly for blocked salvaging tasks due to unavailable storage space for resources)
  • Hauling affinity now correctly shows in the drifter duties panel when a drifter has affinity for athletics.
