From Melvor Idle

Game Update - v1.2.2 (15th November 2023)


If you have already obtained 100% completion in Atlas of Discovery, then this update will remove that status as you will be required to obtain the new content to reach completion.

If you currently have the Cape of Completion (Atlas of Discovery) equipped, then this will be removed automatically when loading into the update.

If you die upon loading into the update due to an item being automatically unequipped, you will not lose any items on death.
