Icarus: New Husbandry Tree Added in Week 45 Update

Icarus steam

Rocketwerkz implemented some fixes for the mount system, introduced in Week 42 Update. The Week 45 update also introduces a new Husbandry talent tree that allows players to become experts in the mount system.

Husbandry Tree

The Husbandry Tree is split into three parts, as follows:

  • The left side focuses on taming phase of cycle with talents including temperature tolerance, taming speed, and providing immunity against predators.

  • The middle part focuses on raising mounts and improving them. The talents in this group include gathering, food, water, and mount health.

  • The right side focuses on using the mount for traveling. The talents in this group include more stamina, more carry weights, better movement speed, less food, water, and oxygen requirements.

Mount System

The developers made noticeable changes to the Mount system in this update. One of them is for the Buffalo Mount, where it received higher weight capacity and more extra capacity to the pack harness. Another key change made to mounts is that they no longer starve to death when they are far away from the player, a blessing for those who struggled before.
