We made several important fixes this month as well as shifting more skills over to a cleaner internal system. The changes made last month appear are stable now. That will allow progression for NPC ability upgrades.
In development, we have several new Stances in testing as well as rewrites for Iron and Reverse stances. Currently one new mechanic is being tested called Disruption which caues a temporary Affect that increases fail chance of casting. We are also beginning support for the One Handed style.
If you want to help with testing and provide feedback, let us know in Discord! Our alpha-testing channel has when the development version is available.
