Hey, magical mixers!


The focus of this update was to fully flesh out the remaining three tools to give you a wide array of ways to completely destroy nature gather resources! 


We also added the ability to double the potion shelf space.


Amongst a bunch of other tweaks and changes, we decided to slightly revamp potion modifiers. They were overly complex, so we simplified their concept without making them easier to achieve and changed their name to match their new design.


And of course, we added some more quests - and yes, that means new hats!


New Content

  • New Tool: Tempest

    • By aiding Barb the druid you can unlock this oversized sickle which will help you gather herbs with the force of wind.

Changes
