  • 1 New Secret Hat (Hint, you're going to need some friends to unlock this one.)
  • 4 New Bodies
  • 2 New Country Flags for capes
  • 2 New Victory Decos (to be fair they're just requested colors for the power deco)

  • Reworked art for tutorial.
  • Changed Watcher's secondary to be a short duration Darkness.

  • Decreased duration of Jester's ultimate to 4.5 seconds from 6.5 seconds, also adjusted the visual effect for it.
  • Set a max number of sound cues that can be played on Krampus' ultimate in order to avoid the really loud noise when lots of bears are by each other.
  • Removed floating arms from Tutorial (spooky)
  • Changed Minerva's Flank to say "teleport to bear" rather than "save bear"
  • Changed a ton of Server Ticks to provide less data clutter.

  • Writhe can no longer hit you through Vulcan's Shield.
  • Changed collision channels in Yule Town to prevent Writhe from leaving the Arena.
  • A bunch of minor bugs are also fixed but I'm terrible at writing fixes down.
  • Localized Watcher's voice lines into 49 different languages.

New in Light Bearers 1.0Xmas (January 11th, 2019)

  • Reworked the blessing system, now there are altars that you can find. Stand on them to charge them up, spamming your crouch will speed it up. Once charged it will award you a random blessing.:
