Yes. There will be wipes. No sugar coating here. There are elements we are adding to the game that will absolutely require wipes. Currently, we are hoping that we will only be doing *claim* wipes, not character progression wipes, but we have to reserve judgement on that because data changes could require one. But when we add Water and Caves (hopefully on the same day so we only wipe once), then that will absolutely require a refactoring of the islands. There is no ETA for that wipe. Don't fear it. Everything will be templated and you'll be able to put your claim back down again after the wipe. You'll just have to pick a new spot when it occurs.
