Patch Notes v0.6 – Progression Update, 3 New Skills, New Weapons, Hitstun, Crafting Changes, Live Portraits

New Features

  • Progression Update
    • 7 new talent trees have been added with 74 talents currently working (of 84 planned) including 7 new Super Abilities and 28 passive stat pools.
    • You now gain 1 talent point per level instead of every 5 levels.
    • After investing 4 points into a tree, your 5th point may be spent on a Tier 1 talent, a unique effect that will change your character’s gameplay.
    • After investing 9 points into a tree (T1 talents also count toward this investment), your 10th point may be spent on a Tier 2 talent. Tier 2 talents dramatically change your character’s capabilities and include Super Abilities.
    • You can invest in any tree at any time. Investing in a tree does not lock you out from investing elsewhere. You can also invest all of your points into a single tree. All talents can be used together, and you can have access to up to 3 Super Abilities at a time.
    • Talents that affect your potion or dodge effects also stack. Your potion’s effects are also applied to an ally when you heal them. The “Talented Healer” talent in the Sendatu tree will apply all of your potion effects to all affected allies.
  • New Skill: Frostbolt – Deals 50% spell damage and applies Chilled to the target for 2 seconds.
  • New Skill: Explosive Arrow – Charge up to increase explosion radius and damage, up to 250% of your weapon damage. Charge rate is affected by attack speed.
  • New Skill: Channeled Lightning – Rapidly drains mana to channel lightning at an enemy. Damage and mana cost increase over time, starting at 100% weapon damage per second and 50 mana per second.
  • New Item – Super Boost: Increases your Super Charge by 10 points. Will only drop for you if you have a super.
  • Players and enemies can now be affected by hitstun. If you deal at least 10% of an enemy’s max life in a single hit, that hit will have a 20% chance to cause hitstun. This chance scales with higher damage, up to 100% if you deal 50% of their maximum health in a single hit. Targets immune to CC are immune to hitstun.
  • Enemies now track the player during their attack animations. No more strafing cheese! Players get hit more often now, so enemy damage has been reduced by 50% globally and will be adjusted more over time. The speed that enemies track you increases with level. Investing in movement speed helps to counter this.
  • All melee weapons are no longer locked to a single type of implicit mod and can now roll a variety of implicit mods.
  • Endeavors no longer clear all existing mods on an item on each use. If you roll fewer mod slots than you had before rolling, mods in the lost slots will be removed.
  • Fool’s Gambles can now add new mods to empty slots if they exist.
  • Player portraits now update to match your currently equipped gear. This does not currently work for party members.
  • 5 new Staff meshes added
  • 4 new Bow meshes added
  • The training dummies in town now measure DPS
  • Added a “Random” button at character generation
  • Added cross-hair customization
  • Character Customization now offers a color picker tool
  • Floating damage numbers are now colored yellow for non-crits, orange for crits, and red for super crits (possible beyond 100% crit chance).

Balance

  • Normalized weapon attack speed and DPS. Attack Speed ratings now more accurately reflect how many attacks per second each weapon will do. Weapons now feel more distinct and DPS is equal on average.
  • Wreath of Vigilance has been removed
  • Immolation has been removed
  • Lightning Bolt has been removed
  • Reduced the attack speed bonus for Dual Wielding from 30% to 20%.
  • Minion Damage mods nerfed from 5% per level to 1% per level, in line with the Damage mod nerf
  • Rapid Fire now fires an arrow equivalent to 80% charge instead of 100%.
  • Heavy Knights are now CC Immune and have a shield and charge attack.
  • Cryomancers will now use a slowing projectile while their target is out of melee range.
  • Spiders will now charge you if you attempt to backpedal cheese them.
  • Summons can now detonate Unstable Runes
  • Unstable Runes can no longer be detonated by other Unstable Runes or AoE damage effects.
  • Max Health per level scaling reduced from 10 to 5. Health mod implicits found on Chest Armor will roll at double intensity. Rerolling this mod with a Twist of Fate will revert the mod level to normal.
  • Max Mana per level scaling reduced from 10 to 5
  • Lower Mana Cost now only rolls on Caster weapon implicits and via Twist of Fate
  • Lower Mana Cost per level scaling reduced from .5 to .2, base value reduced from 1 to .2
  • Mana Regen per level scaling reduced from .25 to .15
