The public test server for New World has been updated recently. The new patch comes with bug fixes that address some issues concerning Heartrunes.

Heartgem Runes (or Heartrunes) in New World are runes introduced in the Brimstone Sands Update not long ago. These are equippable items that provide players with new abilities they can use in battle.

Anyway, the recent PTR patch has fixed several Heartrune issues. For instance, there was an issue where perks that grant additional damage instances were not providing Heartgem charges as they should. This is now resolved.

Additionally, Stone Form: Fortifying Form now applies the Fortify buff separately from the Stone Form status effect.

The latest PTR patch for New World also implements combat fixes:

  • Fixed an issue that caused impact effects to not always play when taking melee damage from the Warhammer Lost Knight.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Corruption enemies to not play their running animation while navigating
  • Admiral Blackpowder’s attacks are now subject to Expedition Mutation-based difficulty scaling.
  • Fixed an issue that caused players to continually slide while in Deaths Door state.
  • Fixed an issue where the Cunning Heartrune of Stoneform used naming inconsistent with the other Heartrunes.
  • Fixed an issue with enemies showing a “Stunned” Icon when they were not successfully stunned by an attack.
  • Interactions are now disabled while aiming.
  • Polished the sound effects for the Hellmouths.
  • Status effects will now apply the strongest stack instead of the most recent stack to targets.
  • Updated all magic weapon buffers for weapon swapping. Swapping from magic weapons should be more predictable.
  • Updated the sound effects for Bandits in Brimstone Sands.
  • Updated the sound effects for several Ancient in Brimstone Sands.
  • Updated the sound effects for several Ancients in Brimstone Sands.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Anpu’s Inferno Slam to kill players through Death’s Door.
  • Fixed an issue where Archdeacon Azamela would not trigger a victory wipe properly when all players were at Death’s Door.
  • Fixed an issue where the fire from Thorpe’s Darkness Calls is not able to continuously apply damage to the player.
  • Fixed an issue with passive AI in Tempest’s Heart ignoring threats and taunts.
  • Reduced the damage dealt by Heru’s Divine Doom.

New World October 27 PTR Patch is available on PC.
