Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where characters who had entered the Ancient Cavern could not respec from the Chronomancer in The Council Chambers.
  • Fixed the entrance Time Rift from Ancient Cavern loading to an endless load screen rather than the Precipice.Added a failsafe so that completing Ancient Hunt automatically completes Ancient Path if it was skipped (due to using an old character).

To correct an issue where characters created before 0.7.4 were shown on the leaderboard, we will be clearing all current entries soon after this patch is released. Your characters created in 0.7.4 will still be eligible for the ladder-- simply level up or complete any Arena wave to have your current level and highest Arena wave listed again.

Our apologies for any confusion or inconvenience this causes!

u guys saw raptor bug :smiley: wow so quick FİXes great job guys lets test this new buffed mage and beastymaster :d

Leader boards didn’t change for me.

I was leveling up a build that made perfect use of this node and then you remove it. Why? Why you do this to me? :cry:

I went in and took out my build to see the new changes - I’m not particularly happy with the nodes used to replace the Cooldown recovery, but I at least understand why the changes went as they did. Moving the Protections per Totem down to 25 is beautiful, though, so overall I’ll take it.

Considering how many affixes are used to grab the necessary defensive options like 100% Glancing Blow, I hope the passive board could be filled with rarer bonuses like Cooldown Recovery, reduced mana cost and others. The “% chance to use a skill that a certain percentage of people won’t even use” is not a particularly good direction.

Early Access.

I dont think this patch has been released yet, since it ways “will be clearing” leaderboards when patch releases posted only 2 hours ago.

Best change. This got me every time.

Sorry about the confusion-- as of this post the patch has been released for 2 hours but the leaderboard has not been cleared.

Hey guys,

I’ve got the download, so I guess the patch is live? If so, how do I get the free respec for the primalist? Don’t have it, just one stray point that seemed to have been in a node that’s changed, I guess.

More, do I have to level a new char if I’ve had a few points invested in, say, beastmaster, just for the bear, although I’m specced as a shaman. When I go to the stone thingy in the forgotten realm, it’s empty.

Looks great! Really impressive turnaround for these fixes.

Mage buff yay :grinning:

That’s a pretty strange one. is this a 1 point node that transfers 100% of leech or is this a point based node that only converts partialy? Sounds pretty strong on paper even when you reduce all your possible leech.

when correct a mistake with the disappearance of items from the chest?

Wow, disentigrate and sceptre buff. What good news for my desintegrate-spellbade Mage :smiling_imp:

It says Primalists and Sentinels get a free passives respec. How can I use that?

And does it also reset the mastery quest?

*edit
I just noticed my Sentinel has all his passives reset. My Primalist doesnt though.
And unfortunately it doesnt reset the mastery quest.
