Pantheon Production Tracker

Pantheon Production Tracker

Welcome to the Pantheon development tracker. The top section (under construction) will contain current works in progress. Below, you will find the list of patch notes for the most recent updates to the test server, as provided to the testers. These will be updated throughout the month.

Epic Progress

An epic is large body of work made up of smaller tasks (example: the zone Avendyrs Pass, is an epic. NPC population or points of interests are tasks within that epic). Once a team has been assigned and begins work on an epic, a percentage progress bar will show the project’s progress. This allows the community to follow works in progress as it is being developed.

The progress bars were last updated 4.2.24


Scope of work: This is tracking the progress toward the first iteration of the zone. The overview, map layout, asset lists, and initial NPC population are included in this first pass. Once this is complete, we should have a minimally playable zone.


Scope of work: This includes concept art, modeling and texturing, rigging, armor, and additional animations. Currently, the Ogre is in armor fitting. This is a time consuming process as Ogres are the bulkiest race. The development plan
is to fit for the largest race first, then the smallest race (gnome) so that armor fitting is faster for the in-between size races. Each race has to be fitted to every piece of armor. Once armor fitting is complete,
the Ogre will be sent for rigging and animations.

Itemization Notes and Gathering/Crafting Adjustments

  • You will note several adjustments to the availability of some types of gathered materials in this update. These types of adjustments will continue in upcoming updates.

  • Gathering nodes (and skinnable corpses) can no longer be set as your offensive target. You still right-click the node to begin gathering.
  • Gathering tools no longer have damage or delay values.
  • The time it takes to gather from a node or skin an animal is now calculated based on the target of your gathering, your skill level in that type of gathering, any gathering equipment that you may be wearing, and the effectiveness rating of your gathering tool.
  • In general, the time required to gather from most small-sized nodes or NPC corpses has been substantially reduced compared to the previous iteration.
  • In general, more exotic materials will take longer to gather from. You can decrease the time required with better tools and higher skill.
  • Large and Huge nodes are sized for groups of players and will take much longer to gather from when solo.
  • When gathering as a group, the initial time required is determined by the person who starts gathering, and group members helping will reduce that time further.
  • If you are interrupted or change focus while gathering the time required will be reset.

Quick Overview of General Itemization Changes:

Over the course of the next several updates, and especially as more areas of our world come online we will be adjusting the game’s itemization to improve the pacing of item upgrades and help make acquiring new equipment a more meaningful and memorable part of Pantheon. For those of you who have been testing, this means that you will see item upgrades coming less frequently on new characters than they did in the past, and that powerful items such as equipment with attribute bonuses will become more difficult to obtain or to create at low levels.

Along with this change, we are also moving to an approach where more specialized equipment types come into play later in your character’s journey. In simple terms this means that you will see fewer class-specific items at low levels, and that over time you will begin to move into equipment types that are tuned specifically for your role or your class. As an example of that, most armor available at low levels will be simple cloth or leather, with chain and plate armor becoming available at higher levels. This applies equally to NPC drops, vendor items, and crafted equipment.

Testing Focus Areas

  • NPC Itemization (see below)
  • All crafting changes (see below)

    • Rusted Chain
    • Rusted/Weathered Weapons
