Datamine Article Preface
Jurassic World Alive update 1.9 is here, and as such we tend to take a peek behind the scenes to see what types of things are hiding in the code! There is SO MUCH much new stuff and we are excited more than ever to share it with you all. As always, with datamined info, one has to keep in mind that the findings could be fully implemented, could be used in a much much later patch (looking at you Pachy) or could be never implemented in the game at all. Events can change anytime and it’s always possible Ludia makes a change we can’t see.
If you're new to JWA or don't like SPOILERS -- be sure to check out all our awesome guides below instead. I'll just link a bunch. That's your queue to check something else out instead of being spoiled!
Still here? Good!
Let's dive into the datamine!
There have been some changes some moves that don't seem to be implemented in the game quite yet as well as a couple of new moves we haven't seen before. Once again, these could or could not actually be implemented and these are just changes we saw in the code compared to the last datamine we did.
Definite Rampage - Does not bypass armor anymore.
Exploit Wound - Vulnerable for 1 turn instead of 2.
While we don't have many creatures with exploit wound, the definite rampage could be a huge change, especially for creatures like Ardentismaxima. We tested the Definite rampage and it still currently pierces armor but this could be a change we see in the future.
Swiftness Strike - Buff speed 50% 3 turns (cumulative)
Velocity Strike - Buff Speed 75% for 2 turns (cumulative)
We already have a minimal speed up move in the game, but it is only for 10% speed (which means it's possible to still be slower). These moves are for 50% and 75% so that's a huge advantage depending on what creatures end up getting these move (if at all).
New Events/ Themes
There are several new themes that we found, with several of them including exclusive dinos (which is always nice to see).
Purrusaurus Gen 2
Dimetrodon Gen 2
Diplocaulus Gen 2
Koolasuchus Gen 2
Irritator Gen 2
Dracorex Gen 2
And Much More
That's all we found for now so nothing too major, but you never know what additional updates we might have in the future. We'll add them here as we find more so stay tuned! And make sure to check out our discord for more discussion and all the up to date information!
