Dauntless just received a full rework for its Bounty system with patch 1.9.0. Players can now upgrade their bounties all the way to gold instead of relying on RNG to earn more rewards. You can grind out bounties for maximum rewards moving forward, which is a much-needed change.

What’s new in Patch 1.9.0

Five events have been tweaked in the latest update to make the fights easier and help players earn rewards faster. Changes have been made to: 

  • Shatterstorm Island Event
  • Firewatch Island Event
  • Lightning Warfare Island Event
  • Slice and DIce Island Event
  • Cold Snap Island Event
  • Shrike Strike Island Event

Modifiers have been removed from most of these events to make the content easier to beat. Random spawns have also been limited and you will no longer have to worry about mobs constantly respawning in some of the island events.

Dauntless Update 1.9.0 Patch Notes

  • Reduced Tough Hide’s unwounded damage penalty from -50% to -40%.
