Annoyed Koala was a small patch released on December 10th, 2013. It was deployed shortly after the games initial beta launch and primarily addressed balance issues identified after public release.

This patch wiped players characters, forcing them to start a fresh game.

It was announced and changes were detailed on the developer blog shortly before release.[1]


This is a HUGE balance patch, every item, creature, armor and weapon has been rebalanced. The leveling system has entirely been rewritten. However although the balance is unpolished in the new leveling system, the system is much better than the old one and we can now improve balance over time.

This patch implemented a Character Wipe.
