Steam PixARK Patch 1.90 St. Patrick's Day Update



Greeting Explorers!


We are excited to bring you our brand new St. Patrick’s Day patch! We hope you’ll have lots of fun!


The patch is scheduled to go live tonight, Mar 13th, at 12:00, am Pacific Time.


Servers will be down for a few hours to implement the following changes:



New Boss: Aurora Butterfly King


A gigantic creature in the shape of a butterfly with aurora glowing from its wings. It will enter an “Aurora” phase in battle where its body will turn almost invisible. Explorers, look out for a fascinating beam of butterfly-shaped Aurora!



• Normal attack: Uses its mouth to bite down enemies.

• Aurora beam: Releases a beam of aurora from its mouth. The attack power is increased if it is in invisible mode.

• Butterfly Powder: The powder from its wings will deal poison damage over time to its enemies nearby, also lowering their attack powers. While in its shining mode, Butterfly powder will lower the attack and defense of its enemies nearby. 

(powder can be eliminated by the breath of fire from fire wyverns)

• String shot: Deals a small amount of damage while immobilizing enemies for a long period of time.

(Wyverns cannot be immobilized)

• Butterfly Dance: Deals damage to enemies nearby and confuses them. Enemies will be unable to coordinate their movements for a short period of time.

(Wyverns cannot be confused)

• Mirage: Creates a mirage of itself. Mirage will have  70% of its attack and 20% of its HP.

(Lightning/poison wyvern will deal triple damage to mirages)

• Aurora Mode: Turns itself, as well as its Mirages, to nearly invisible beams of aurora. Their attack damages will be lowered, but their defense will raise. Some skills are changed in Aurora mode as noted.



• Players will need to summon the “Ancient Gate” to teleport and challenge the Aurora butterfly king.  

• Players will need to collect 7 types of magic stone (Dark/Water/Wind/Thunder/Fire/Light/Earth) and summon the “Ancient Gate” through the inscription book.

• Different sizes of the “Ancient Gate” can be summoned at different rates, which determines the amount of players/creatures that can go into the challenge.

• Upon summoning,  “Ancient Gate” will be in inactivated mode. Players will need to obtain Energy Stone, which is craftable in the Alchemy Stove, to be placed on the Ancient Gate to activate the portal. If you wish to challenge the Aurora Butterfly King again, you will have to place another energy stone to activate the portal again.

• Upon activation, holding “E” button will allow you to choose which boss you would like to challenge. You can only challenge one boss per activation
