Pre-Alpha 0.4.10 Patch Notes


#1

Lots of changes this time around, most notably the streak system for the arena, a rework of attributes and several skills, a new skill, a skill tree for Abyssal Echoes, and 4 new unique items!

Mechanics

  • Added the streak mechanic to the Arena

    • As your streak increases enemies become more powerful and grant more experience on death
  • Added an NPC to the Square who can respec your most recent passive grid allocation for gold
  • Reworked attributes
    • Strength now grants 10% melee damage and 15% armour (from 20% melee damage and 10% armour)

  • Added necrotic damage and an affix
    • Will be used by the Acolyte and some enemies
  • Removed holy damage, and its related affixes

    • The crit nodes have been replaced by nodes that grant global crit chance or crit multi while you have Aspect of the Panther
