Class Changes
Basic Combo

Basic combo

Whirlwind attack

  • Significantly reduced startup so that it can be more easily used in combos
  • The Amazon is now able to catch her Chakram while in the ground and in hitstun from an enemy attack
  • A successful Parry can now be cancelled into an attack earlier. It can also now be cancelled into a Chakram throw or a Wand spell


Thank you as always for your feedback on 
Steam and socials! This round of improvements gives new strengths to the Warrior’s least used moves, and makes the Amazon even more well-rounded. As both their toolkits become more polished, tons of new combos are now possible!
  • Bonus attack speed now also reduces the charge time of the Charged Arrow
  • The Elemental can now pick-up Gold for the Wizard
  • Reduced the hitbox size of explosions from The Sun to be more in-line with the visual effect
  • Followers no longer create explosions from The Sun


  • Slightly lowered her cooldown period after ground attacks
  • Increased overall speed
  • Increased ground attack damage (150 -> 175 and 250 -> 300)
  • Increased energy shot attack damage (75 -> 90)
  • A Follower can now come with you to the next level after defeating a Boss
To make Life Builds that focus around Followers more viable, one of the Followers that manages to survive a Boss Fight will help you from the start of a new level!
  • The HP/Attack/Speed scaling of friendly Followers has been significantly increased, meaning that Followers found in more advanced levels will be stronger
  • Increased the overall HP scaling of Bosses at higher levels
  • Increased the damage scaling of monsters at higher levels
  • Decreased the movement/attack speed scaling of monsters at higher levels
  • Reduced the overall difficulty scaling at higher levels for games with 1 player
  • At very high levels, there is now a limit to the number of extra monster spawns. When this threshold is reached, monster damage will start increasing drastically
  • Increased the randomness of the Boss selection in levels with multiple possible bosses
  • Limited the ability for a large amount of Harpies to stunlock players in the air
Gear & Perks

A few items have had limits added to their scaling to improve balance and fix issues with strong enchants!

  • Resistance (Impervious Jewel): Max Health threshold does not go below 3%
  • Shield of Faith (Gem of Munimentum): Cooldown does not go below 2s
  • Unstable Current (Quavering Hand): Stamina threshold does not go below 1
  • The scaling factor of Time Stop (Rod of the Aeons) has been changed from 200% to 50%
  • Plague (Blighted Gauntlet, Hand of the Scourge) has been changed to no longer have an internal cooldown, and the Attack/Defense debuff has been improved from 15% with a 50% scaling factor to 25% with a 100% scaling factor
  • Transmuting an already enchanted item will now keep the enchant level and improve it by +10
  • Enchanting an already enchanted item will now improve it by +20, but cost more Gold than a normal enchant


The Enchanter and Transmuter have been improved to offer useful services no matter how far into a run you are. Be warned: you might need to prepare large amounts of gold to sustain their costs.
  • The Temporary HP Shield now depletes slightly slower when at low amounts of Shield, but much faster when at very large amounts of Shield
  • Vampiric Hunger, which grants a stacking Temporary HP Shield when killing enemies, has been reworked from being based on the player’s max HP and now uses flat values (80 + 60 HP / perk level)
  • Apex Predator life healed reduced from 12% (+4% / level) to 10% (+3% / level)
  • Improved Health maximum health reduced from 16% (+8% / level) to 16% (+4% / level)
  • The Log can now be accessed during runs, in the Pause menu
  • The cooldown of Wands is now displayed in the Log
  • An option “Always Zoom Out” is now available in the Video menu, forcing the game camera to constantly display the most zoomed-out view
This option is disabled by default and is recommended when playing on a big screen, or for people who prefer restricting camera movements as much as possible.
  • Added an option to allow the game audio to keep playing while the game window is unfocused
  • The Splash & Start screens can now also be skipped with mouse clicks
Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where spawning a summon behind Sylvan’Uur would cause it to face to the right
  • Fixed a typo in the Justice & Judgement text displayed when killing an Elite/Boss
  • Fixed an issue where changing Categories in the Option menu while quitting it could result in an unstable state for the UI
  • Fixed an issue where viewing an Item in your Inventory while another player picked-up the Rune at the end of a Boss fight could cause you to lose your Item
Spider Queen Update
  • Added a new Boss to the Ice Caves!
After clearing the main level of the Ice Caves, you will face either Frostfang, or the newly introduced Desydera. Her special movements and magic attacks will keep you on your toes!
  • The difficulty scaling of the extra levels from The Moon has been reworked to grow exponentially
The level of challenge will feel similar for the first few extra levels, but as you progress monsters will scale more drastically in health, damage, speed and numbers. Put into action your best builds to take on this new challenge!
  • Added 7 new HUB rooms
  • Added 3 new Puzzle/Trial rooms
  • Added 12 new Dungeon Sections variations
The dungeons of Bravery and Greed are ever-expanding! We are continuously adding new content to keep the feeling of discovery fresh.
Due to under-the-hood changes, resuming a run in progress that was saved from the last version of the game will not be possible between versions 1.01 and 1.02a. As always all other data will be kept intact, and we aim to avoid this issue for future version changes.

  • Explosions from The Sun now do 50 less damage during the first level, but will scale to higher damage values in harder levels

We’re making adjustments to Arcana to balance their effects at various stages of the game. This goes alongside the major change to The Moon in making the end-game a much more difficult challenge!
