It's too bad no one can start a new profile and confirm for sure. The directional dungeons break...

Cause that's when you can start god unlocks, right?

Yea and shops. I am guessing whatever scaling they put in doesn't like dividing by zero :)

I'm hoping that we'll get a hotfix for this. A lot of the new changes this week are going to be untested unless this gets fixed.

I then unlocked Binlor, which caused me to go to 3 altars (and Pactmaker suddenly started appearing as an altar - which was strange since I had already found it three times in the subdungeon)


I am suspicious that Pactmaker doesn't unlock until you have completed both of:
- Find his subdungeon and touch the alltar three times, and
- Unlock every other god.

I haven't been able to confirm this, and have no idea if the second step is intentional.

I've heard of the Pactmaker not showing quite a few times from different people, so this seems to be the case.

He showed up once for me when I had 1 deity and unlocked then never appeared again. After I'd unlocked four deities, he appeared a second time and now he's gone again. I suspect what the devs had in mind was that the Pactmaker would appear repeatedly over the course of the game as you unlock other deities, and finally add himself to the pantheon to complete it. This would be lost on us since in our original progression the Pactmaker was added after we'd already unlocked everyone else.

Aha! So he slowly adds himself in, until you finally truly unlock him. Credit to the devs for this idea!

Yeah, based on my experiences with him, I'd say this is what happens:

2 deities - He shows up the first time
4 deities - He shows up the second time
6 deities - He shows up the third time
8 deities - His altar starts spawning
