Disney Dreamlight Valley’s largest drawback was its Dream Shards — a useful resource so scarce that numerous gamers, together with me, have been getting soft-locked out of the sport for days on finish. Nonetheless, developer Gameloft says it’s fastened the issue by tweaking the sport’s useful resource steadiness points and fixing different problematic bugs.
Dream Shards, a key useful resource, will now spawn extra typically — as a reward for feeding animals, clearing thorns, and digging up glowing dust.
Dreamlight Valley is an early entry recreation, and there are technical issues which have only in the near past hindered a few of that enjoyment. I’m enjoying on Xbox Collection X by way of Xbox Sport Cross, and primarily based on what I’ve heard and skim, it’s in a lot better form than the Nintendo Swap model, which is seemingly always crashing or glitching out. I haven’t skilled technical snags extra typically than a couple of times within the 19 hours I’ve performed, which doesn’t really feel irregular to me. However I have been held up by that imbalanced useful resource spawning.
I’ve reached one quest line that unleashes a curse onto the village — one which locks all of the villagers inside their homes, besides goddamn Kristoff, Merlin, and Rapunzel’s mother. To progress, I want 5 Dream Shards, that are extremely uncommon. For reference, after 19 hours, I’ve none. You must clear thorns for an opportunity at discovering them, and only some thorns spawn a day — until you’re unlocking a brand new space. The respawned thorns have supplied no Dream Shards for me, so I grinded cooking and fishing to unlock Dreamlight factors to open a brand new space as an alternative.
See above: My home is stuffed with cooked fish and fruit cups. (With everybody locked of their homes, I couldn’t promote any objects both, which implies I needed to drop all the pieces on the bottom.)
After a number of hours, I had sufficient Dreamlight factors to unlock a brand new space stuffed with thorns. Sadly, these thorns gave me cash and seeds — not a single Dream Shard. And so I needed to begin the method of grinding Dreamlight factors once more, in hopes of someday discovering 5 Dream Shards. At that charge, it could have taken greater than per week, which wouldn’t have been horrible if I might do actually the rest within the recreation.
However it didn’t take me greater than per week, as a result of I discovered an answer by trawling the developer’s Twitter account: Gameloft despatched all gamers 25 Dream Shards to make up for the steadiness points; my points are solved now, and my city is free. So in case you’re having this drawback, examine your mailbox — despite the fact that there’s nothing in-game indicating you’ve got mail. It’s a Band-Assist on a design drawback, even when the Band-Assist is invisible to anybody who isn’t checking Twitter.
Because of this replace, which Gameloft stated is rolling out over a pair hours, Dream Shards shouldn’t be a lot of a difficulty. But when they’re, know that your mailbox is hoarding Dream Shards, too.
Gameloft hadn’t talked about whether or not it’s tweaked spawn charges for every other objects — flowers and different foraged sources had been spawning slowly, too — however the Night time Shard adjustment will give lots of gamers loads extra freedom.
