  • A handful of new rooms have been added
General Changes
  • The Sigil screen has been reworked. It will now show you currented unlocked (but not acquired) sigils, acquired ones, and locked sigils will also show you what you need to do to obtain them. The toggle now toggles the characters instead.

  • Changed look of status effects to make them more readable
Character Changes
  • Added more “Combo branches” inputs, meaning being able to continue actions after accidentally falling off a platform while attacking
  • Charged attacks now reset air combos and can all be dash cancelled. It takes also slightly longer for the charge to start (12 more frames)
  • Made a few Divico hitboxes a bit more consistent and added more early cancels into other attacks (such as air heavy into stomp)
  • Changed the enemy pushback on Divico’s final heavy stab to avoid the enemy flying all over

Enemy Changes
  • Guarding enemies have been changed slightly, as now hitting the shield enough time will also trigger a guard break. However, if you wait too long, they will use a critical attack after guarding for a few seconds
  • The ogre’s whirlwind attack now will knock away all enemies in proximity
  • Mask of Want’s attack out of guard is faster
  • Blight demon’s HP has been increased
  • Blight demons’s hitboxes have been adjusted and will miss the player less often. All their attacks have a chance to bleed
  • Some of Octavius’s attacks have seen its damage slightly boosted as well as his health
  • A slight delay has been added between when you open the chest/activate an altar and are able to pick up an item/forge a pact to avoid accidental instant pick ups
