Here are the enhancements and updates according to The Cycle Frontier official blog:

Note from the design team: We really appreciate the feedback we’ve gotten so far and keep getting when it comes to balancing. Keep it coming! We see it as a dialogue with the community to get this right over time, and as the season progresses. With that in mind, when it comes to balancing late-game gear, we’re still watching data and feedback to see how things develop over time, as players get their hands on more late-game stuff. It’s still early, and the ecosystem is still changing rapidly. Expect updates during the season!

  • Fixed some item duplications. 
  • We fixed the problem that some players got stuck in their starter quests by adjusting the mission check. 
  • The Paladin Blade will be shown correctly in your inventory and can be equipped.
