Beta 0.7.9d Patch Notes

Monolith of Fate

Timeline Progress Saving

  • When you die in the Monolith of Fate or leave an Echo before completing the objective, your progress in that Timeline is no longer reset.
  • Instead, you lose a number of Echoes Conquered and active modifiers, and can continue the run from there.
  • Quest Echo completion is not lost when your run is set back.
  • The UI for selecting your next Echo now shows how many Echoes Conquered are required to have a chance to find the next Quest Echo.

Boss Balance

Listed by Timeline level to avoid spoilers.

  • All bosses grant significantly more XP.
  • Level 55
    • Boss deals 15% less damage.
  • Level 62
    • Boss deals 12% less damage.
    • Boss has 7% less health.
    • Spiral attack no longer ignites.
  • Level 68
    • Boss deals 15% less damage.
    • Boss has 6% less health.

  • Lagon’s sweeping beam attack deals 10% less damage.

Visuals

Sound

  • Added new cast sounds for Tornado and Fire Tornado.

  • Reduced the volume of the Temple Guardian awakening.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the void damage per fire aura bonus from Dark Shroud of Cinders was applied an additional time whenever your stats updated and never reset.
  • Fixed a bug where the reward chest in Echo of a World was hard to click.
  • Fixed a bug where the Grand Resonance of the Sea blessing had no effect.
  • Fixed a bug where Lunge’s sound effect remained at the location where the player used Lunge. The sound now travels with the player.

Thanks for the update guys as the fireball thing was very distracting. Also, the echo reset punished you for playing the game and taking chances so that change is great. No more messing up once on a new boss and losing 1-2 hours of progress.

Boss nerfs but I hope, it is still challenging let’s see what it feels like.

They all hit very hard on certain moves even against my very tanky paladin. They will still one shot most builds if you don’t dodge them.

dodge them, idk I have have no issues and am not a god tier player. I am probably about the middle of the pack.
but have found the difficulty a little underwhelming if I make a mistake I should be punished. Just me though idk

I am a ninja haha :rofl:

but in all seriousness I want it to be fun for the majority. But hopefully the not resetting modifiers will make the bosses hard still.

I still want a challenge and if i can get 10/10 without dieing on an ssf then that is no challenge for me LOL

I would like to see difficulty brackets if that makes since.

The quest echoes leading up to the bosses are not challenging or rewarding. I love the bosses themselves, well designed fun fights with good visuals, so bravo EHG. Something needs to be done to spice up the other echoes. Some ideas would be each forge spawns its own ultra rare mob with an extra powerful ability that challenges the player and drops decent loot. Spire echoes should just be removed as I’m not sure what you can do to make those more enjoyable and I dislike them very much.

As a side note, the Phylactery in the blood & sand monolith is absolute bullshit for a melee character with no ranged abilities. It does more damage the closer you are with its normal attack from what I can tell and the whirlpool just makes you back out for 8-10 seconds so you can get 3 seconds of damage in. Hope this can be looked into thanks.

Good job, Thank you. It was the main reason of frustration.
The full reset just didn’t give people the opportunity to learn the boss fight, and also made any experiments during timeline too risky to do.

I agree. with the echos sentiment completely. but if I want to be challenged now the monolith of fate is just no going to do it for me it seems Idk. I have to test the new changes

Awesome patch, can’t wait to test this
