[Investigating] Lantern not giving double rewards after update

Platform, device version and operating system:
Playing on pc and noticed that my lantern used on Boss 2 didn’t give double rewards!
Only got 1 Epic vault key from it and 1 imperial.

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
Lanterns are supposed to give double rewards, but after the update they do not!

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Started after update.

Steps to make it happen again
Can’t test if it is consistent for all boss rooms cause I only have 1 lantern

That makes it even weirder!

For me it was the 2nd boss and I had already cleared it before the update.
When fighting it again AND using the lantern, it gave me 1EVK and 1 Imperial Deed, where that should be 2 of each!


That’s awful, even worse if you bought the lanterns.

Worked for me (Xbox).

It seems to be ‘remembering’ stuff from the first go, before reset. Wonder if that’s why you are seeing this effect, as the game thinks you already did it with a lantern and is confused?

For example I opened the teal rune gate before, and I’ve just come across the unlock boss and it says I already have the keystone. I did earlier on in the week, but not since the reset, so some things have been carried across the reset for sure.

I did get the double rewards for that boss before reset.

But a game getting confused…
I get your point, don’t get me wrong!
But still seems like an error in coding.
Or maybe not a real error, but the code can’t handle the fact that a boss is encountered twice with a lantern?
Or something…

Still a mess tho.

I need to buy more torches to finish this week and then I don’t even get the double rewards?


I also used lantern before the reset.

Used Lantern on second dragon boss just now and received the 2 ID and 2 EVK as expected.

Note, I hadn’t found the 2nd Dragon Boss earlier in the week.
