Combat & GameplayEdit

Combat BalanceEdit

Dragonknight

  • Draconic Power
    • Reflective Scale: Increased the duration of this ability and it morphs to 6 seconds from 4 seconds.
      • Developer Comments: This new duration is consistent with similar abilities, such as Crystallized Shield or damage shields, and allows Dragonknights to maintain better uptime with less resources spent and global cooldowns used.
  • Earthen Heart
    • Petrify: This ability and its morphs can no longer be cast on a crowd-control immune enemy.

Sorcerer

  • Dark Magic
    • Defensive Rune (Rune Prison morph): The buff applied by this morph will no longer be consumed when you are attacked by a crowd-control immune enemy.
    • Rune Prison: This ability and its morphs can no longer be cast on a crowd-control immune enemy.

Templar

  • Dawn's Wrath
    • Eclipse:
      • Increased the damage this ability and its morphs deal by approximately 67%.
      • Increased the cooldown on when this damage can occur to 750ms.
      • The damage from this ability can no longer be blocked.
      • The damage from this ability can now occur on the first tick of any Damage over Time ability.
      • This ability and the Total Dark morph can no longer be cast on a crowd-control immune enemy.
        • Developer Comments: This change makes Eclipse more useful against targets that are not dealing numerous attacks each second, such as monsters or even players who are not light attack weaving. This helps make the results of this ability more consistent against different targets.
    • Solar Barrage (Solar Flare morph): This morph now grants the Empower buff after every tick of damage, instead of only when you initially cast it.
  • Restoring Light
    • Healing Ritual: Reduced the cast time of this ability and its morphs to 1.2 seconds from 1.5 seconds.
      • Developer Comments: Reducing the cast time of this ability will make it less susceptible to interrupts, and easier to land a potential life-saving heal on an ally. It now fits better with the fast-paced nature of combat.
    • Cleansing Ritual: Increased the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 14%.
      • Developer Comments: This change encourages more strategic use of this ability's powerful debuff removal. Recasting this ability to remove only a few debuffs at a time will be a less efficient use of the Templar's resources.

Weapon

  • Bow
    • Acid Spray (Arrow Spray morph): Increased the duration of the Damage over Time applied by this morph to 6 seconds from 5 seconds, causing it to tick for one additional instance of damage.
    • Arrow Spray: Increased the duration of the snare applied by this ability and its morphs to 6 seconds from 5 seconds.
  • Destruction Staff
    • Elemental Storm: Reduced the damage of this ability and the Eye of the Storm morph by approximately 12%. The damage on the Elemental Rage morph remains unchanged.

Armor

  • Heavy Armor
    • Immovable: Reduced the cost of this ability and its morphs by approximately 5%.

Champion System

  • The Tower
    • Siphoner: Reverted this champion passive's values back to 15% at 100-points, but it now reduces all resource restore effects on the enemy. This includes potions, item sets, and ability passives.

Combat Fixes & ImprovementsEdit

Nightblade

  • Siphoning
    • Malevolent Offering:
      • Fixed an issue where this ability and its morphs were displaying a generic icon and incorrect name in the Death Recap UI.
      • Updated this ability and its morphs' tooltip text and new morph effect text to better match its new functionality.

Sorcerer

  • Daedric Summoning
    • Summon Storm Atronach: Fixed an issue where the Atronach summoned from this ability and its morphs could use its channeled zap attack through walls.

Templar

  • Restoring Light
    • Rune Focus: Fixed an issue where the visual effects and audio from this ability and its morphs would repeatedly flicker if you stood within the Area of Effect.

Guild

  • Fighters Guild
    • Circle of Protection: Fixed an issue where the visual effects and audio from this ability and its morphs would repeatedly flicker if you stood within the Area of Effect.

Itemization BalanceEdit

Item Sets

    • The imperfect version was increased to 10 seconds from 8 seconds.
  • Clever Alchemist: This item set's proc now requires that you are in combat for it to function.
    • Developer Comments: This solves the issue where some players would activate their potion with this item set, then completely switch their gear to a new item set while retaining the bonus. We want this item set to be used more strategically in the middle of combat, rather than it only being used to one-shot players from stealth.
  • Destructive Impact: Increased this item set's cost reduction for Destructive Touch to 30% from 12%, and increased the bonus to its direct damage to 2000 from 1500.
  • Piercing Spray: Increased the duration of the debuff applied by this item set to 6 seconds from 5 seconds.
  • Shadow of the Red Mountain: This item set's proc can no longer target neutral monsters or monsters you are not in combat with.
  • Timeless Blessing: This item set now causes Blessing of Protection to reduce the cost of all your healing abilities by 30% for 3 seconds.
    • The imperfect version reduces the cost by 27%.
  • Titanic Cleave: This item set now increases the direct damage Cleave deals by 1500 for each enemy in its cone, up to a maximum of 9000 increased damage.

Itemization Fixes & ImprovementsEdit

Item Sets

  • Destructive Impact: Fixed a typo in this item set's name.
  • Mad Tinkerer: Fixed an issue where the monster summoned by this item set's proc was not scaling with your global damage bonuses, such as those from the Champion System.

    • The Uncracked Transmutation Geodes awarded from Rewards for the Worthy mails will now give a minimum of 4 Transmute Crystals, up from 3, and can rarely grant as many as 25.
  • Standardized the different Geode names - there are now Transmutation Geodes which always give a set amount of Crystals, and Uncracked Transmutation Geodes which give a random amount of Crystals. The higher a Geode's quality, the more Crystals it will provide.
  • Transmutation Geodes can no longer be opened if you are already have the maximum number of Transmute Crystals.
