Commentary[edit | edit source]

First update during Kickstarter! Thanks everyone for your support. This time we’ve buffed minion defenses, and also addressed the stash causing the game to load slowly and The Arena to eat RAM, and so much more.

Patch Notes[edit | edit source]

Skills[edit | edit source]

  • Buffed minion defenses in skill trees

  • Victory Barrier on the Sorcerer Grid now grants flat ward, rather than ward as a percentage of your health
  • Arcane Momentum now grants more cast speed, but no longer stacks
  • Adjusted the wording of several tooltips

Items[edit | edit source]

  • Improved the clarity of Chain Lightning’s description
  • Inventory grids are more visible

Enemies[edit | edit source]

  • Disabled the “Summons Ally” rare prefix on skeletons, which may have been causing the summoned ally skeletons to be undamageable

  • Made the Protector Statue’s rock throw attack somewhat easier to avoid

Level Design[edit | edit source]

  • Added a training dummy to The Square

  • Adjusted terrain reflectiveness of several levels
  • Adjust volumetric lighting of several levels
  • Adjusted post-processing of Breirhold

Sound[edit | edit source]

  • Limited the concurrent instances of most sounds - should fix situations when the game’s sound stopped working
  • The Arena now plays multiple tracks in turn, so it takes over 15 minutes to loop
  • Reduced the volume of the Ice Nova sound effect

Bug Fixes[edit | edit source]

  • Fixed Erasing Strike and Swipe retaining a cooldown after despecializing if you took a node that granted one

  • Fixed a few movement issues in The Ruins

  • Fixed a bug where the Blacksmith in the Arena could persist after you start a new wave
