For every 150 / 125 / 100 / 85 / 70 / 50 shields, gain +1% bonus critical strike chance. Ranks 4 through 6 also gain 5 / 10 / 15% critical strike damage.
They also added the omnicells in Dauntless update 1.61. Omnicells are new craft able gear that provide a wide range of build options to let you strategize around your preferred playstyle, as well as plan for specific encounters. Experiment to find the playstyle that best suits you!
The Heroic Escalation has been added to Dauntless now. You will have one Heroic Escalation available to play every week. Battle your way to new variations of keystone Behemoths with updated moves and combos. Come back each week to see if you’re up for the challenge, and put your skills to the test to earn elemental crowns and more.

Operating mostly in secret beyond territory frequented by the Slayers of Ramsgate, they’ve sworn to protect the settlers abandoned by Ostigaard’s Imperial Triumvirate. A returning threat will force them to seek the aid of the exiled Admiral Zai.
The Reward Cache Refresh also comes with this update, it is updating with a brand new set of armour based on the Ostian Hinterwilds, as well as new weapon skins.
