March 31 Update
March 31 Update Steam

New controller settings and balancing adjustments to certain heroes have been added in the latest update for Naraka: Bladepoint. This update also invites players to the new Spring Herald event.

New Event

There’s a new limited-time event where completing weekly quests, opening troves, and destroying breakable objects can grant you Willow Branches. These things can be exchanged for some event-exclusive rewards.

In addition, some players will be assigned as “Spring Heralds” each week. Play with them in a match to get the Spring Herald’s Blessing. There are a few things you need to know about this. First, it increases the max number of Willow Branches you can get from troves and breakables to 20. Second, green or golden troves are available in a match and you also have a chance to get one Spring Chest. And lastly, Spring Heralds will gain Happy Spring Cards every day, which are used to send Qingtuan to others.

    • Turning Boost: Applies when pushing the stick to the greatest extent in a direction

    • Turning Ramp-up Time: The duration in which "Turning Boost" steadily increases while pushing the stick to the greatest extent
