Localization-related bug fixes

The Kulve Taroth weapon Taroth Daggers “Fire” are fire element, but were translated to infer that they were Blast Element. The translations have been fixed to the following:

  • English:
    Taroth Daggers “Blast”

    Taroth Daggers “Fire”
  • French:
    Dagues Taroth – Explosion

    Dagues Taroth – Feu
  • Italian:
    Pugnali Taroth “Scoppio”

    Pugnali Taroth “Fuoco”
  • German:
    Taroth-Dolche “Explosion”

    Taroth-Dolche “Feuer”
  • Spanish:
    Dagas Taroth (nitro)

    Dagas Taroth (fuego)
  • Russian:
    Ножи тарот: взрыв

    Ножи тарот: огонь
  • Brazil-Portuguese:
    Adaga Taroth Explos.

If players had the Taroth Daggers “Blast” in their possession, they have simply been renamed to Taroth Daggers “Fire” and have not been deleted.

  • When planting a Health Booster
    Усиление здоровья!
  • When planting a Cleanser Booster
    Усиление чистоты!
