Dauntless 0.9.0 update saw the start of the Fortune & Glory hunt pass, introducing exciting new features such as the Island of Trials. One feature many players didn’t request was an infinite loading screen after completing the character creator. After spending ages designing a character exactly to your taste, no one wants to get stuck on a loading screen and lose their progress. Sadly a lot of Dauntless players are facing this barrier, but the good news is that it shouldn’t be long before a fix arrives.
