Patch 8 is here, it brings a host of new Wild Appalachia content to Fallout 76, a new questline, features, balance adjustments, and a ton of bug fixes.
A new questline, the Lying Lowe Questline, sends you out to look for Calvin van Lowe who was lost while searching for the Sheepsquatch. You can start the quest by finding and reading the “Sheepsquatch Ate My Brother” poster which can be found around train stations and in Lewisburg. If you don't feel like looking for it, you can pick it up at the atomic shop for free until May 7 and then place it at your CAMP to read it.
The Burrows is a new dungeon coming April 16 which promises to be tough even for experienced players. You follow the steps of the Brotherhood of Steel beneath Harper’s Ferry. Who knows what was the reason behind their expedition, but you will need to bring in a squad of your own if you hope to survive.
The last really big change is to vendors. You can now find every factions vendor at The Whitespring Resort, with the exception of the Enclave. An additional change was made to Vendor Cap pool, instead of each vendor having 200 Caps, now all of them share a 1400 Cap pool. This change should help with transactions involving a lot of items or more expensive ones. The Vendor Cap pool still resets every 20 hours, that hasn't received any changes.
Finally, there are smaller changes such as turret damage in PvP, being able to name weapons and armor and a reduction of caps lost while playing Survival.
