Salem October update
Your characters are going to die if you play Salem. That’s the nature of the game. It’s an open PvP sandbox with permanent death mechanics; your end is forever waiting just around the corner. So doesn’t it make sense to prepare for your demise by setting up your inheritance ahead of time? The game’s October patch allows you to do just that, improving the inheritance mechanics and allowing heirs to pick up more resources from a player who plans in advance for the inevitable.
The October patch also adds the start of the game’s witchcraft mechanics and sees a number of under-the-hood polish changes, like a reworking of player character skeletons, which will be invisible to most players but significant to the team moving forward. That’s in addition to a variety of other fixes and improvements;check out the full list of updates to see what your character can do while on the road to the grave.
