  • Changed the logic for dropping items so that instead of always preferring class-specific weapons, we weight choosing weapon types to drop equally, but weight the class-specific legendary items higher than non-class-specific legendaries.
  • Fixed an issue where diminishing returns on the defense stat can start retracting the percentage of the prevented damage.
  • Fixed an issue where traits wouldn’t update when unequipping items.

Gear

        – Winterweave Armor set, The North Mace, Glacier’s Edge, Frostwall, My Lil’ General, Toymaker’s Tool
  • Added new Rare Items
        – Frostform Head, Elfin Cap

  • Pet collars that grant elemental damage immunity function correctly.
  • Ball Lightning (item active skill) can no longer be cast in town.
  • Fixed Arc-Powered Pants that had a duplicated affix.
  • Lost Legion active skill now displays the minions’ weapon damage on the tooltip.
  • Changed the Legendary drops that were restricted to specific regions (I.E. the Woodsbeast set in Goblin act regions) to now be restricted by level range instead, so that those items can appear anywhere in Fazeer’s Dun’djinn. Woodsbeast armor pieces can appear in any Fazeer’s Dun’djinn area, rather than just Goblin-themed ones.
  • Fixed the player receives the Frost Nova active skill instead of the Ball Lightning skill while wearing the Lightning Baller.
  • Fixed “Spindly Legs” magic quality locomotion has a legendary item map marker.
  • Fixed typo in Servo-Blade’s legendary affix description.

  • Fixed an issue where Lighting Strike from Storm Driver’s Legendary affix deals incorrect damage.
  • Added missing SFX to Firestarter’s fireballs.
  • Added missing SFX to the Undead Army.
  • Raging Beater – Now generates Steam when Ramming Robot vents, just as Vortex Bomb and Coal Launch do.

  • Fixed an issue where the player can cast Call the Legion skill in Trevail Point or any other city.
  • Fixed an issue where the “Hand Cannon” 1H Pistol has implicit Crit Chance (as if it were a 2 hander).

Affixes

  • Fixed an issue where affixes that grant bonus levels to relic skills would grant skills from other relics.
  • Fixed an issue where affixes that grant bonus levels to relic skills didn’t always end up granting at least 1 level.
  • Fixed an issue where the ‘+x to the skill level’ item affix becomes unprofitable if it exceeds the 10th level of the skill.
  • Affixes related to Heat Dissipation now go the opposite way, increasing Heat generation for skills.

Contracts

  • Added a new, limited-time Snow & Steam contract (including new Contract Banner Art) with a variety of winter-themed rewards (see the Forts section above for a complete list of items).
  • Replaced the gear contract rewards:
        – 3 rare items has become 3x 1 magic or higher quality item.
        – 1 legendary item has become 1 rare or higher quality item.
        – This was due to the disproportionate amount of effort this previously put onto finding more efficient ways to grind fame to get contract rewards, as those sorts of strategies tend to be more monotonous and less interesting. This should hopefully put more of an emphasis back onto killing monsters, where it belongs, while still making these nice to have rewards.
  • Increased height of the Contract Claim Chest text area to fit 4 lines of item text.
  • Fixed an issue where Contract rewards appear empty when you open the contract screen, do not populate until you scroll.

  • Added 2 new pets and 3 new pet variations:

        – Red-Nosed Retriever (Legendary, random skill)
        – Reindeer (Magic, random skill)

  • Fixed an issue with the Codex Impression quest item becoming unobtainable after completing the task to “Use the Dwarven Codex” and leaving the area before picking up the item for the “Knowledge is Power” quest.

  • Increased the progressive increase in drop rate for the “Rare Bone” quest item for “Bone Nerd”.
  • Changed all the “kill skeleton” and “get quest item from skeleton” tasks in mapworks quests to be valid for all undead, to make the drop chance less dependent upon differing mixes of monsters.
  • Fixed singleplayer/offline issue with “Tutorial: Pet Shelter” and “Tutorial: From a Humble Seed” being unable to complete when going to their forts outside of Trevail Passage.
  • All mapworks dungeons no longer have exits, instead have quests specifically tailored to each area, which drop a portal to the boss fight when you complete the quest.

  • Mapworks boss names appear in task texts for kill boss tasks with no boss row supplied.

General

  • Fazeer now appears in front of his lounge in your fort.
  • There are now Fazeer’s Dungeons based on some of our hub areas: Firebelly Village, Acrid Plains, and Machineworks.
  • Most Fazeer’s Dun’djinn checkpoints now have a greater variety of bosses: about 45 instead of 8 possible bosses, though you’ll still need to fight the big bad bosses to earn the new trophies for progressing in Fazeer’s Dun’djinn.
  • The gear that you get as you delve deeper into Fazeer’s Dun’djinn will have a Challenge Bonus applied to all affixes, so there is better level 60 endgame gear the deeper you go, and you’ll need it, as…
  • Damage from monsters increases the further you go into Fazeer’s Dun’djinn, both increasing faster per level and stopping at a higher value than before.
  • Fazeer’s Dun’djinn “set” affixes now apply to bosses, in addition to their own affixes.
  • Added two new Fazeer affixes:
        – Cranked — Lose health perpetually, but heal with each kill.
        – Monster Kill — Gain movement speed and damage with each kill, stacks up to 20 times.
  • Five Fazeer Dun’djinn Trophies are now available and are obtained when reaching level Level 39, Level 83, Level 133, Level 191, and Level 251.
  • Added new Fazeer card art.
  • Fixed a few Challenge Dungeon boss arenas that could never get pet cages.

MONSTERS
General

  • Slightly decreased legendary champion hitpoints (about 15%) to make it more likely that you’re fighting the whole pack of them and not just left with the legendary by itself.
  • Fixed an issue where the Plaguebearer poison balls can’t be heard.
  • Raised the sound of all monsters by 2db.

Mobs

  • Removed “Gundaddy” from the list of valid mapworks bosses (Phase Dungeon, Map Scroll or Fazeer’s Dun’djinn).
  • Reduced Phase Beast health by about 40% to make it easier to kill them when you’re really trying, especially at higher difficulty levels.
  • Phase Beast portals now lead to one of 59 different boss fights. As these will now be against minibosses instead of the big bosses, the phase beast fights won’t be quite as long as they were previously.
  • Phase Beasts can now spawn in the Fields of Unrest, The Chasm or Trial of Fire, in addition to the areas in which they could previously spawn.
  • The minibosses that the Phase Beasts lead you to are selected from a list of minibosses of the same element as the current act, or physical damage. This increases the phase beast dungeon variety from 1-8 (depending on area) to 28-36 different minibosses in each area.
  • Fixed an issue where some dead vespid would rotate to face their killer.
  • Inactive enemies (like Mimics) can no longer be targeted by Earthen Spikes & Electrode.

  • Fixed an issue where Cloak of Flames’ Evasion was not applying.

Electrode

  • Fixed an issue where the shock bolts from the Conjure Electrode skill deal 70% of weapon damage, regardless of how many points are added to that skill.
  • Reduced the Busy-ness of Chaotic Strike bolts to read more cleanly in Multiplayer.
  • Fixed an issue where the damage values for the Localized Storm skill are not representing the real damage values done in-game.
  • Fixed an issue where the lightning bolts from the Shocking Force passive skill always deal 400% of weapon damage, regardless of how many points are added to that skill.
  • Fixed an issue where the Lightning Strike passive skill deals 125% weapon damage, which is inconsistent with the skill’s description.

Coldheart

  • Fixed an issue where standing close to large monsters causes all of the icicles to damage the monster while using ‘Ice Shield’.
  • Adjusted text for Snowstorm tier 3 milestone to reflect that critical hit chance vs caps at 40% and not 100% like it originally said.
  • Fixed an issue where Snowstorm deals damage only four times, will now do damage until Relic energy is depleted.
  • The icicles from the Cold Front skill deal around 20% weapon damage and is not increased, regardless of how many points are added to that skill.

Bane

  • Fixed an issue where leveling Miasma does not increase the skill’s damage.
  • Adjusted the damage for the fanged maw ranged attack so its dealing the proper damage amount, it was not.
  • Fixed an issue where Spectral Spider’s damage is not increasing for every skill point spent; additionally, fixed its in-game base effect is inconsistent with its description.

CLASSES & SKILLS
General

  • Fixed an issue where leveling a skill causes the spent skill point to still show as being unspent.
  • Clarified tooltips for how +10% boosts to relic skill damage works — it’s a multiplier, and it now says so.
  • Fixed spawning issues where some skills could summon their pets outside the environment.
  • Fixed a confusing, blurred error message that was displayed on the bottom of the screen during difficulty selection when creating a new character.

Dusk Mage

  • Dark Spears tier 2 bonus now grants 10% cooldown reduction to all skills with cooldowns (excluding the cooldowns on charge-based skills).
  • Fixed an issue where damage is not increased by 50% while in Harmonic Form.
  • Players now appear correctly to their party members while casting Holy Fury in multiplayer.
  • Entropy’s Tier 3 milestone no longer increases mana cost, but the pulses deal half the skill’s normal weapon damage.
  • Fixed an issue where Luminous Run would not interrupt other skills, and would not activate if targeted very close or very far from your position.
  • Fixed an issue where Shadow Step would not interrupt other skills.
  • Fixed an issue where Damnation’s duration is not updated in the skill’s description after leveling up the ability.
  • Fixed Harmonic Form from spending charges.
  • Fixed an issue where the mana bar might not decrease under certain circumstances.

Forged

  • New Steam Mechanic for Forged, including new HUD/HUD animations. New SFX/VFX for some adjusted skills.
  • Forged now has a second resource!  Steam is displayed directly next to the Heat bar. Steam is generated by venting Heat.  If you Vent a full Heat bar, you get a full Steam bar. Steam very slowly decays over time, but increases Forged Movement Speed so long as you have any Steam, justifying the slow decay. By default, Steam has an immediate early-game benefit to utilize.  It enhances Basic Attacks with special bonus Proc effects that will spend Steam:
        – For Melee basic weapons, a conical blast of steam will deal damage whenever you swing.
        – For Ranged basic weapons, a piercing steam projectile is shot whenever you fire.
    Now that venting Heat generates a bar that can be utilized for extra benefits, Heat no longer decays or stops skill use.  You can still use skills even at maximum Heat.
  • Slug Shot has become “Pressure Shot”, firing a much larger steam blast in a line.  It has far higher DPS than Rapid Fire.
  • Servo-Driven Uppercut has become “Steam-Powered Uppercut”.  It has far higher DPS than Rapid Strike.
  • “Vent: Furnace Blast” has become “Critical Mass”.  It requires over 75 Heat and Steam, and clears both bars.  This positions it as a ‘build around me’ skill, as you need to be building both bars quickly.
  • “Vent: Fracking Strike” has become just “Fracking Strike”, as a powerful cooldown skill spending 75 Steam, sending the current Fracking Strike shockwaves in 8 directions.
  • Power Projection has been updated to rapidly generate Steam over time while the buff is active.  This gives the skill more utility in more builds, and adds a timing component.  You want to use the skill when you are low on Steam.
  • Sonic Pulse is updated to increase damage from Steam-spending skills (including Basic attack Steam procs).  This makes timing Sonic Pulse important – you want to use it with a full Steam bar, regardless of which route you took for Steam spending.
  • Several skill milestones and Legendary bonuses have been updated to work with the new Steam mechanics.
  • Fixed an issue where Critical Mass (formerly Vent: Furnace Blast)s tier 1 & 2 milestone bonus did not function.
  • Replaced the old Forged orb with the new version in the help/mechanics screen.
  • Fixed an issue where all Heat is reduced to 0 upon leveling up.
  • Fixed an issue where Ramming Robot would not interrupt other skills, and would pause slightly after ending the charge before allowing normal movement again.
  • Fixed typo referring to the old Forged skill name of “Steam-Powered Uppercut Damage”.
  • Poison dart tooltip clarified to say what type of damage it deals.

Sharpshooter

  • Fixed an issue where Reload does not reset cooldown of some of the Adventurer skills.
  • Fixed an issue where Ghost Visage would not interrupt other skills, and would not activate if targeted very far from your position.
  • Fixed an issue where tier 3 of Shasta looked like she was poisoned.
  • Fixed an issue where Ghost Visage was not scaling its crit chance per level correctly.
  • Fixed an issue where Onslaught was not indicating its per level bonus was damage, not duration. Fixed the tooltip so the duration now changes when you get its tier 2 milestone.
  • Added a missing SharpShooter hair anim FBX file that caused it not to animation on the character select screen.

Railmaster

  • Fixed an issue where Hammer Swing would not interrupt other skills, and would pause slightly after ending the charge before allowing normal movement again.
  • Fixed the legendary Shotgonner’s Shield referring to a bonus effect of Shield Car which does not exist.
  • Reduced the length of Railmaster tracks before they start deleting.
  • Reduced the VFX for Shield Car to help with the intensity.
  • Fixed a tier 3 bonus effect of the ‘Blastin Charge’ skill deals incorrect damage.

ENVIRONMENT
General

  • Shortened Fields of Unrest, as there was a large section of this hub before The Chasm, which led to difficulty finding The Chasm. The density of monster spawns here also was leading to over-leveling and for it to just take too long to clear on your way to The Chasm when playing through the story.
  • Slightly lowered the XP to level from level 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 to more consistently reach a level as you clear these first dungeons.
  • Increased the amount of XP to level from level 4 to 5 to account for the section after the Den of Upheaval in Edgewood Bluff, the section at the beginning of the Fields of Unrest and (to a lesser extent), the invaded Trevail Passage (on your first character on your account).

  • Fixed an issue where Thorned Striders are spawning into the Ascent of Echoes with no animation – they just pop in.

Now the chain lightning strikes an additional target when active (two by default), with an additional target struck when the tier 1 milestone is achieved.
  • Fixed an issue where the Endurance regeneration portion of Shocking Rounds didn’t function.
  • Edited Pound’s Endurance bonus buff tooltip to reflect that it does 30% bonus to attack speed and damage for basics, not 50%.
  • Added a small delay to the Pound skill’s tier 3 bonus to make it more obvious that it’s happening.

This ability summons two skeletons that last 12 seconds, deal 50% weapon damage and have 50% of your health.
