Below are some highlights, followed by the full patch notes: 

  • The bounty board has gotten more busy! We've added a bunch of new difficulty based bounties, with better rewards to boot. This way high difficulty bounties are also more rewarding.

  • Added new style consumable: 1 time buffs for dungeon run.

  • Remove % from ult charges ui. Ultimate abilities now require various levels of charge instead, ranging from 50 to 150.

    • Lightning Strikes now costs 50% ultimate, but now deals 300% weapon power (down from 400%) per attack, and deals 5 attacks (down from 6).

    • Awaken Ancient now costs 150% ultimate, but now lasts 15 seconds (up from 10 seconds).

  • Some heroes have new passives and skills:

    • Kujuk: Replaced passive "Fast" with a new one: "Ripple in time"; Duplicate your titan skills with a 2 second delay.

    • Scarlet: Replaced Chakram skill with the Ricochet Glaive skill.

    • Desert Mouse: Replaced Ricochet Glaive skill with Chakram skill.

    • Desert Mouse: Buffed and slightly changed passive: the cap has been increased to 300%, up from 200%, but you only gain 10% damage increase when hitting an enemy with a basic attack. However, the effect remains until you have been out of combat for 3 seconds, which effectively means you can keep the passive effect active for the entirety of an encounter.

    • Malborys: Passive has been changed, it now briefly emboldens Malborys with 5% damage reduction after spending rage. stacks up to 30%.

    • Bu: Passive now deals 2000% bleed damage from your crits (up from 200%), and the bleed no longer stacks.

    • Commander Clegg: Replaced Taunting Roar with Ground Stomp.

    • Commander Clegg: Phalanxes now copy Clegg’s skills when used.

    • Roland: Passive changed to fully charge your ultimate gauge at the start of each room instead of spawning a Spirit.

  • Introduced a dedicated “Play with bots” option without needing to enter matchmaking.

General

  • Changed the way the loot fountains at the end of boss fights are triggered. Loot fountains now spawn in a designated spot in the boss arena when the boss has been defeated.

  • Gold and Class Coins now stay on the ground until picked up.

  • Local players can now only be added when a supported controller is connected

  • Blightrifts now also appear and are accessible when playing with bots. However, because some of the Blightrifts make use of some unique or specific mechanics, players will only encounter the Blightrifts where bots function as intended for now. We might fine-tune their intelligence in the future, so that all Blightrifts can be made accessible for them as well.

  • Some of the heroes found in dungeons now only spawn at certain difficulty levels, to slow down the pace at which the player acquires new heroes. Getting a new hero should feel special, so we implemented this change so that newer players do not get a unique hero in each new dungeon they explore and/or complete.

  • Ensure player heroes start dungeons with full health.

  • Increased the texture resolution on Sentinel animation graphics.

  • The Writhing Oracle now only spawns when all players are present in her boss arena at the end of For Whom the Bell Tolls.

  • Shadow Statue skill now has unlimited skill range.

  • Removed skill range indicator on Shadow Statue.

  • Reduced the base ultimate charge gain when someone picks up mana to 5% (down from 10%).

  • Fixed an issue where the Health noted in a character's stats sheet was sometimes not exactly the same as in-game health.

  • Fixed conversations with enemies during Karue's story.

  • Fixed an issue where Creen's personal goal achievement would reset after finishing a run and pop up as a Steam achievement, even though the player did not play Creen.

  • Fixed an issue where tentacle traps showed status effects.

  • Fixed an issue where Shadow Statue was blocked by environmental collision.

  • Fixed an issue where Shadow Statue beam visuals were incorrectly stretched instead of repeated.

  • Fixed an issue where Bu would lose the bleed from her passive when applying a smaller crit to the enemy that already had a stronger bleed.

  • Fixed an issue where the general charger kept displaying its attack area visual after death.

  • Fixed an issue where the boss charger kept displaying its attack area visual after death.

  • Fixed an issue where the general charger kept displaying its charge area visual after death.
