Merchant Features Update

From the Release Notes:

An update will be released today that includes the following:

Punch and Vise

Punch and Vise, two gremlin outcasts from Emberlight, have set up shop in the Haven Bazaar. Using very dangerous looking equipment, they provide the services unbinding items and adding unique variants to items.

  • Punch can add one, two or three random unique variants to items in exchange for crowns.
  • Punch's UV service erases any of the previous UVs on the item.
  • Vise can unbind an item in exchange for energy.
  • 0 star and starless items (costumes) cannot be unbound.


  • Crafted items may now randomly obtain up to three unique variants. However, obtaining three UVs via crafting is exceptionally rare.
  • During crafting, if the option to retain existing UVs is selected, the item will have no chance of gaining 'extra' UVs. For example, an item that has a single UV that is preserved during crafting has no chance of retaining the existing UV plus gaining more.

Item Previews

  • Vendor catalogs now have a Preview button which allows you to select vendor items and recipes and see what they look like on your knight.
