First, I love the work you’ve all put into this update.
I completed the game back in December and despite the problems I still enjoyed it. And the recent changes make it feel like a fresh experience. I especially like the central “grand staircase” linking the levels together - feels like a cohesive dungeon now.
Everything was going well until I tried a side quest to recover “ripper hide armor”. In the previous build(s) these types of items were in chests and I assumed the same with Update 2. However the persistence state is so good on the levels that none of the chests reset and in this case there is only one chest in a the tiny highlighted section of Upper Erebus (blue highlight on map to indicate quest location).
It’s basically just one room with a stone walkway across some shallow water that sometimes has an enemy on a platform to the left and there’s just a single chest with a lamp on the bridge. That’s pretty much the makeup of this highlighted area.
I looked in the water, checked the walls, etc. to see if you implemented some new hiding spot for quest items like this armor. I even busted the few vases in the area.
I want to keep playing but I fear that this type of quest that involves chests may be busted.
