Balancing[edit | edit source]

The Update of Plenty (Version 1.9)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

Weapon rework

  • Following the extremely succesful weapon popularity poll, we tried to give some love to the less liked weapons and slightly nerfed the most effective ones. The aim is to open up a wider range of builds, while not sacrificing what made meta builds fun.
  • Most of the changed consist of slight number tweaks, some are more profound reworks but there is one notable exceptions:
    • All Crossbows (with the exception of Sonic Crossbow which is now named Sonic Carbine) are now two-handed weapons and Survival only.
    • Multiple-nocks Bow, Marksman's Bow and Nerves of Steel are now Tactic only and have been buffed.
  • These weapons never really shined in Tactics because there are few reasons to take them in a Tactic build rather than in a Survival Build. And we were forced to make them less efficient than other pure Tactic range weapons to balance for the dual-scaling.
  • With the 2-handed weapons becoming part of the Survival identity, it felt only natural to increase the efficiency of these weapons to make them better on par with the other choices, and to make it pure Tactic.

Economy rework

  • It has been brought to our attention several times (and, frankly, we knew already) that the economy in Dead Cells was... peculiar. While everything seemed to be fine at low difficulty level, it got worse and worse in high BC, where if you wanted to buy healing you would have to basically never spend any gold on anything else. So to fix this we implemented several changes, small and big, some among them will be detailed later in this patchnote.
  • Here's a short list of what changed:
    • Gold scaling is gone, long live small numbers!
    • A good amount of items had their price changed
    • To replace gold scaling, gear price now goes up with item level
    • Refining and affix reroll costs have been changed
    • Shop categories are now stats instead of equipment type
    • Shop reroll is now free, but makes items on sale pricier

Gear qualities and damage rework

  • Bonus stats have been removed from ++ and S gears, but to compensate new scrolls have been added in biomes, enemy damage has been reduced, and gear damage has been changed to increase with item level.
  • This change was implemented to give back some importance to gear level, and in pair with the economy rebalance give you more opportunities (and an incentive) to switch gears during your run.

New DoT: Shocked and DoT reworks

  • All damage over time statuses seemed to blend together a bit too much for our taste. We decided to try and give each DoT a unique identity, and added a fourth one, shocked, in the process. Most electric weapons and items inflict this new shock DoT.
    • New DoT, Shocked: deal damage over time to the target and all nearby targets.
    • Bleed rework: Stack enough bleed status on a target and the damages left is instantaneously dealt at once.
    • Poison rework: Upon death, propagate the poison status with reduced damages and for the remaining duration.
    • Fire un-rework: Untouched, because fire was already perfect.
  • Also, all affixes giving bonus damage on an enemy with a specific status have updated values.

Damage mutation rework

  • Damage mutations (those who give a bonus DPS to your attacks) suffered from poor scaling, making them extremely useful at low difficulties while being less and less useful as you progress through the game.
  • To remedy to that, we changed their bonus from a bonus DP to a bonus % of damages. This means that everything that boosts your attack (item level, item rarity, affixes, etc.) will synergize with those mutations.
  • Impacted mutations:
    • Combo
    • Vengeance
    • Tainted Flask
    • Support
    • Tranquility
    • Gastronomy
    • Extended Healing
  • Changed and increased the initial pool of mutations.
  • Any diminishing return is now removed after a few secondes. This means that Freeze, Stun, Slows, and everything else that used to be less and less effective against a target in a fight can now be used more efficiently for these long boss fights. Version 1.9.1
  • Community Suggestion | Equipping a two-handed weapon now gives you access to a backpack weapon slot. You can put any one-handed weapon inside so the next time you come across another one-handed weapon, you can equip both at the same time to replace your two-handed weapon. Version 1.9.1

Balancing[edit | edit source]

  • All bonus damage affixes' chances of being generated have been lowered - with the newest addition, every item felt like it had 3 or 4 DoTs status synergies, making it feel like there is no point in building your build around.
  • Community Suggestion | Gold scaling has been removed from the game. While it's less impressive to gain 500 gold than 42345, it's also more easy to grasp. And more importantly: this makes our work waaaay easier to fine tune the amount of gold generated in a level.
  • Shop Reroll is now free, and the limit has been increased to 5 times. Every time you reroll though, the price of items available in the shop is increased by 40% of their base price.
  • Spoiler level now has a guaranteed heal shop and a random gear shop, instead of two different random shops.
  • Many items' base prices have been changed. The changes might not be completely apparent at first glance, as the scaling heavily modified the prices anyway, but here's the list of items which prices changed.
  • Items that had their price raised:
    • All healing items
    • Powerful Grenade
    • Fire Grenade
    • Heavy Crossbow
    • Explosive Crossbow
    • Repeater Crossbow
  • Items which prices have been lowered:
    • Stun Grenade
    • Giant Killer
    • Ice Armor
    • Ice Bow
    • Long Bow
    • Sonic Carbine
  • Legendary Weapons no longer give scroll and give less bonus damage than before. That's not permanent - we just haven't decided on how to balance them yet.
  • As mentionned above, enemy damage has been decreased to make for the loss of gear scrolls at the beginning of a run. It's very much WIP, we will be very grateful to let us know if you think enemies do too much or too little damage. Thanks!
  • You now get a free amulet at the beginning of a game at BC1+. Most likely subject to changes.
  • Mobs now teleport to you much faster at BC4+.

Legacy Update (Version 1.6)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • A new skill has been added, the Ice Armor. Covers your body with ice that explodes, freezing enemies, when you activate the skill again or after a few seconds. If you take a hit while it still active, you don't take any damage/ malaise and the ice explodes, but the cooldown is doubled. Perfect to delay the decaying of your current host...
  • A new shield has been added: the Ice Shield which, surprise, freeze all enemies around you on a successful parry. Parried projectiles will also freeze the enemies.
  • Frostbite a new survival mutation, has been added, turning the "slowed" status into a dot in addition to its usual effect.

  • Lightning Whip does more damages, and will also deal damages to the enemies close to the target (currently 50%).

Balancing[edit | edit source]

  • Community suggestion | The margin for random values has been decreased from 20% to 10% +/-. Basically before, an attack inflicting 100 damages could actually inflict in-between 80 and 120. Now it is in-between 90 and 110.
  • Decrease the cell cost of Health Flask III and IV, Gold reserve III, IV and V and Advanced Forge.
  • Community suggestion | Hemorrage and Thunder Shield blueprints drop rate increased.

The Corrupted Update (Version 1.5)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • Corrupted Confinement: A new optional (mini) biome has been added, mirroring Prison Depths. Both biomes are now very short, thought as challenged areas with one cursed chest at the beginning.
  • Scroll Fragments: These are "quarters" of scrolls, called fragments, which began to appear at BC3+. Find four of them to make a whole triple scroll!
  • Recycling Tubes: A new meta upgrade, unlockable when beating the Hand of The King for the first time in BC1. Replace the starting gear with four set of 5 random items (melee, range, shield and two skills). Choose one.

The first part of Dead Cells can be very tedious without any skills and the stat points that come with it. We hope that this upgrade will help with that.

  • Explorer Instinct: A new rune, which reveal the whole map and its points of interest (scrolls, chest, merchants, etc.) when you've explored most of the level.
  • Fewer Curse Chests : While we do think it's great mechanic, being forced to open all the curse chests to not fall behind on the curve (BC3+) can be frustrating. The chance of random cursed chest in each level has also been updated.
  • New Tactic mutation: Crow's Foot

Dodge to place up to nine caltrops on the ground, damaging and slowing enemies.

  • New Tactic mutation: Networking

Stick an arrow in two or more enemies to make them share the damage they take.

  • New Tactic mutation: Tactical retreat

Dodging just in time slows nearby enemies and prevent them from inflicting malaise.

  • Removed the possibility to equip two version of the same item. Think double boomerang or heavy turrets. Legendary items are not concerned by this restriction.

A Custom Mode option reverting this change has been added (locks achievements).

  • Added a Custom Mode option to increase the number of mutations equipable (locks achievements).
  • Community suggestion | Added a Custom Mode option to make every item colorless (locks achievements).
  • Community suggestion | Two new achievements, including one for beating Gigantus without taking a single hit.

Balancing[edit | edit source]

  • Community suggestion | Remove hard damage cap of 99999 damage, in order to stop penalizing heavy hitting weapons against bosses. Very much monitoring this change, as it could causes unforeseen issues.

  • The Guardian's Haven now directly leads to the Throne Room.
  • Community suggestion | Corrupted Power damage buff now scales with item level and quality.
  • Protector platform cost increased (which means less mobs around).
  • Great Owl of War blueprint drop rate increased
  • Maximum number of Knife Thrower on one platform decreased.
  • Sweepers platform cost increased (which means less mobs around).
  • Community suggestion | The bestiary of Prisoners' Quarters, Promenade of the Condemned and Ramparts have been tweaked.
  • Community suggestion | Scrolls spread in-between biomes has been slightly balanced to be more coherent with the difficulty of the level and to prevent some roads and biomes to be a clear better choice than its counterparts.
  • Community suggestion | Cleaver cooldown reduced and health points increased.
  • Community suggestion | Ice Crossbow now scales with Survival in addition to Tactics.
  • Community suggestion | Frost Blast now scales with Survival in addition to Tactics.
  • Ice Bow now dual-scales with survival in addition to Tactics. The idea behind green-scaling freezing items is to begin offering alternatives to shield in the secondary slot.
  • Community suggestion | Lightning Bolt doesn't scale with Survival anymore
  • Limited the spawn of Hammer to one per room instead of two.
  • Community suggestion | Advanced Forge upgrade cell cost divided by 2.
  • Community suggestion | Increased drop rate of blueprints dropped by Hammer.

  • Community suggestion | Added some invulnerability frames for Telluric Shock.
  • Community suggestion | The Shovel now repel all grenades in range.
  • Community suggestion | Librarians now have a more limited detect range.

  • The resistance buff given by the Legendary Altars to the enemies around has been decreased.
  • Frantic Sword now inflicts critical damage if you have less than 50% of your life or at least 50% of your Malaise bar filled up.

Who's the Boss Update (Version 1.4)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • Who's the Boss Update! This patch brings 7 new weapons (one for each of the five bosses of Dead Cells, one for a certain really challenging fight, and a mystery one) thematically tied to Dead Cells' bosses. Beat them and claim their weapon as yours.
  • In addition to the new weapons, we welcome 6 new mobs - also thematically tied to the bosses - in the family. We hope you will love them as much as we do!
  • Community suggestion | The Color Scaling of many items has been changed. We've been rethinking how each color should offer several specific approaches of the combat.
    • Tactics: Glass Cannon with an emphasis on being well positioned. Survive by not being hit, and in dire need of suitable tools (defensive or helping with re-positioning) to do that job consistently.
    • Brutality: A well balanced build focused on fast weapons, melee combat, damage-over-time and offensive skills.
    • Survival: Slow weapons, great shields, lot of health, offensive skills with high cooldown but decent control alternatives. Everything tied to healing.
  • Hence, why we felt the need to change a few of the current weapon scalings to be more in line with the global philosophy behind. Here is the full change list:
    • Stun Grenade, Ice Grenade, and Root Grenade are now Tactics/ Survival instead of Brutality/ Tactics.
    • Death Orb is now Survival instead of Tactics.
    • Corrupted Power is now Brutality/ Tactics instead of Tactics/ Survival.
    • Vampirism is now Brutality/ Survival instead of Tactics/ Survival.
    • Tonic is now Survival only instead of Tactics/ Survival.
    • Corrosive Cloud is now Tactics/ Brutality instead of Tactics only.
    • Lacerating Aura is now Tactics/ Brutality instead of Tactics only.
    • Throwing Knife is now Tactics/ Brutality instead of Tactics only.
    • Meat Skewer is now Tactics/ Brutality instead of Brutality only.
    • Assassin's Dagger is now Tactics/ Brutality instead of Brutality only.

Two of the 14th update’s new items have also received a color change, with Lightspeed becoming a Tactic/ Brutality, but with a higher cd than before. A certain other spinning skill has become Brutality/ Survival instead of Tactics/ Survival. Version 1.4.2

  • Community suggestion | 3 New Tactics Mutations! Albeit not being designed to fit into range build but to make Melee purple an unstoppable killing machine. Until you take a hit.
    • Scheme: Using a skill gives a flat bonus damage to your next melee attack.
    • Initiative: Gives a flat bonus damage to your first melee attack against an enemy.
    • Predator: Killing an enemy with a melee attack makes you invisible during X secondes.

We've been thinking about making an Assassin's build (Glass Cannon with the highest damage and great mobility but the lowest tankyness of the game) viable in Dead Cells for some time now, and the recolor of some items was the perfect opportunity to try it.

The Assassin is thought to be built around skills where you need to be at the center to make the most of it (Lacerating Auras, Knife Dance) and excellent defensive options or even panic buttons (Wave of Denial, Decoy, now Lightspeed and the control grenades). We also had the weapons fitting the gameplay theme of the assassin scaled with Tactics to give a few more options for this build.

These mutations are available to everyone by default for testing purposes at the moment. Version 1.4.2

Balancing[edit | edit source]

  • When locked, the Rampager will now launch her attacks without waiting to be in range of the player. This will prevent cases where she will go on rampage, get locked, then attack the player without warning as soon as they get close.
  • Increased level of items from Cursed Chest and Legendary Altar by one.
  • Community suggestion | One-time damage buffs (from Grappling Hook and Counter Attack affix) don't trigger on some minor damage dealt (arrow affixes, grenade affix, Crossbow hook, Phaser, Grappling Hook itself).
  • Community suggestion | Disengagement now removes all poison on the beheaded when it triggers.
  • Poison will no longer kill you, but bring you down to 1HP instead. This will prevent some deaths that could feel unfair while still being pretty threatening.
  • Valmont's Whip is now a Brutality/ Tactic weapon instead of Brutality/ Survival. It's survival scaling was justified back in the days when it was quite a slow weapon. It's not the case anymore, while a good positioning (a staple of Tactic gameplay) is still required to get the most out of the weapon.
  • Community suggestion | Grappling Hook is now Tactics/Brutality instead of Tactics/Survival as being well positioned is needed to optimally using the weapon, but it fits the brutality playstyle more than the survival one.
  • Magnetic Grenade is now a Brutality/Tactic weapon. Keep your foes from approaching while your turrets shred them.
  • Community suggestion | Ripper damage increased. Version 1.4.2
  • Community suggestion | Parting Gifts range and damage slightly increased. Version 1.4.2
  • Phaser won't trigger Thorny's back damage anymore. Version 1.4.3
  • Hook cooldown now resets when missing. Version 1.4.5
  • Community suggestion | Elite Golems can no longer have the clone skill. Version 1.4.9
  • Elite's turret skill increased cooldown between bursts. Change was actually live since 14.5 but we forgot to mention it in the patchnotes... Version 1.4.9

Level design[edit | edit source]

  • Knife Thrower has been taken out from the ramparts to reduce the number of range enemies, from Clock Tower to reduce the number of invisible enemies and from Toxic Sewers where the knife thrower was redundant with the Scorpion (samey kind of horizontal range, invisible).
  • Inquisitor has been taken out of the Cavern (redundant with its three-hands bigger brother Arbiter).
  • Community suggestion | Added a light in each trap room in Forgotten Sepulcher. Version 1.4.3
  • Community suggestion | Fixed some problematic rooms: floating walls, softlocks, projectiles leaking from challenge rooms, etc. Version 1.4.9

Graphics & UI[edit | edit source]

  • Community suggestion | Infected Food now appears green on the mini-map.
  • Community suggestion | Added an icon above enemies that still have a blueprint unlockable while wielding the Hunter's Grenade.

Quality of life[edit | edit source]

  • Community suggestion | Added key bindings to move the camera with the keyboard (IJKL by default).

Bug fixes[edit | edit source]

  • A certain enemy in a certain really challenging fight can now throw fireballs from inside the wall. This sounds like a bug but I swear its actually a fix. Pinky promise.
  • The elite skill Cage will now correctly follow the elite mob when charging up again. Charge time was also increased a little for better readability.
  • The Parting Gift now correctly scales with your Tactics level.
  • Great Owl of War now correctly follows you through sub-levels.

  • Corrosive Cloud and Bloodthirsty Shield now work correctly with the affix "bleeding causes poisoning."
  • Slasher's third strike will not go over gaps anymore.
  • Kamikaze in Prison Depths or Ancient Sewers won't drop keys anymore. A kamikaze would not drop its key if it killed itself, and killing one while it was flying over a wall would make the key appear in weird places. This should fix all that.
  • Various crash fixes. Complicated dev stuff, semi-colons and all that.
  • Fixed Slammer and Rampager sometimes levitating. We listened to you, and now they will never feel the breeze under their wings again. You monsters. Version 1.4.1
  • Friendly Worms no longer freeze enemy attacks. Version 1.4.1
  • Replaced "stun" by "root" in The Boy's Axe description. Version 1.4.2
  • Fixed "Legenday" typo in difficulty choice panel. Version 1.4.2
  • Magnetic Grenade will not turn friendly bombs or traps into grenades anymore. Version 1.4.2
  • No more stalactites falling after killing the Giant. Version 1.4.2
  • Parry Shield now parries grenade on the ground without a small delay. Version 1.4.2
  • Fixed enemies teleporting to you even when invisible in BC4+. Version 1.4.3
  • Fixed Hook not applying its affixes to the next attack. Version 1.4.3
  • Fixed being able to parry the horizontal AOE elite skill multiple times. Version 1.4.3
  • Fixed Slasher shockwave hitbox. Version 1.4.3

  • Fixed some Spikes hitboxes. Version 1.4.3
  • Fixed DOT and other alternative sources of damage not having increased damages in the very last phase of a certain secret boss. Version 1.4.3
  • Fixed the prisonner floating in the air when climbing a wall with a platform behind his back. Version 1.4.3
  • Multi-state items (Tonic, Vampirism, Great Owl of War, Lightspeed, etc.) don't swap places when used on the left slot anymore. Version 1.4.6

Custom mode & Balancing (Version 1.1)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • Community suggestion | A vast number of items have been updated to make them more useful or powerful. The idea here was to make many "auto-recycle" items much more interesting.
  • New custom game mode released! You can now customize your runs the way you want, like unlocking/relocking items, enabling special gameplay adjustments, changing rules etc. You are under control, have fun :)
  • Community suggestion | Homunculus skill has been vastly improved: you can now grab your own turrets, cancel a grab, it deals more damage, breaks invisibility etc.
  • Community suggestion | Most mutations have been reworked & balanced in order to make some of them more useful. See other notes for more details.
  • Community suggestion | The "mob auto-scaling" mechanic has been removed completely. All the levels now have a fixed "difficulty" that won't adapt to you in weird ways anymore. This affects the game in the following ways:
    • in 0-cell mode: things will be a little bit easier (just a little bit)
    • in 1 & 2-cells modes: difficulty is roughly the same as before
    • in 3 & 4-cells modes: you'll have to be really careful to be properly equipped before getting to late levels (picking cursed chests scrolls is highly recommended)
  • Community suggestion | All the cooldown reduction mechanic has been redone from scratch. The mutations that granted free CD reduction (for active skills and grenades) were removed. They were replaced by 4 new mutations to give you new active ways to reduce your skill cooldowns: by killing enemies in close combat, by killing at distance, by parrying and by dealing critical hits.

For example, one of these mutations reduces all your ongoing skills cooldowns by 2.5 sec for each successful shield parry, and this time value even increases based on your Survival stat.

The one that reduces CD for each critical hit is a new colorless mutation that will scale on your highest stat.

  • Community suggestion | Bosses no longer drop Legendary items, but 1 weapon and 1 active skill instead. Legendaries are now "world drop", so you may encounter them when killing mobs or on the new "legendary altars". The level generator has also been adjusted to ensure you find a "Legendary Altar" in most of your runs. You may also get legendaries as rewards of advanced challenges, like beating a boss without getting hit.
  • Community suggestion | Damage Reduction has been heavily reworked. Most items no longer grant DR anymore, their power has been increased as a compensation. Damage Reduction is not a mandatory strategy anymore and the whole game difficulty has been rebalanced accordingly.
  • Community suggestion | You can upgrade the Forge with the Collector and unlock the ability to upgrade an item quality more than once.
  • Community suggestion | Balanced the way money profits/costs scale on higher difficulty settings. Costs now scale faster than profits. Also, Recycling profits are no longer based on the the buying cost of the item, but on its reselling value, which scales slower (TLDR; recycling no longer breaks the whole economy).
  • New secret holes can now spawn below your feet. Pay attention to hidden runes in the ground and use your stomp move to break them!
  • Most mobs in 4-cells difficulty are now more aggressive: they can teleport, they have a better detection range and they cannot be distracted by deployed traps.
  • Community suggestion | New challenge doors in transition levels will require you to kill X enemies without getting hit in a row. Their rewards are equivalent to Timed Doors. Note you can get hit before or after a serie of X kills, this won't invalidate this challenge.
  • New challenge doors after bosses will grant Legendary items if you kill a Boss without getting hit once.
  • Community suggestion | Timed doors have all been moved to transition levels. They now offer a multi-purpose reward instead of Scrolls. You can now choose 1 reward for free among 3 (picked among weapons, skills and talismans). Their quality level (+/++/S) is guaranteed, based on the current difficulty setting.
  • Healing items (Tonic) & mutations (Necromancy, What doesn't kill me) now heal a percentage of your max life, and this percentage scales with your stats.
  • Elites enemies have been reworked. All of them will now have an additional random elite skill in addition of all their normal skills. Expect many different things, from lightning walls, clones or shield pylons.
  • Community suggestion | Killing a mob while the homunculus is stuck on it no longer triggers the homunculus skill cooldown, allowing you to use constantly, as long as your target dies. If you recall it before the enemy death, it will trigger the penalty cooldown.
  • The Achievements are now visible ingame!
  • You may now find Legendary Altars in some levels. They grant you a legendary item but you'll have to kill all the nearby enemies first. Version 1.1.2
  • Fighter Endurance is a new mutation that increases your HP by a percentage which scales with your Brutality. Version 1.1.3
  • Upgrading items in Forge now costs a fixed flat price that doesn't scale with difficulty. Upgrading "from ++ to S" for example should now be more affordable in BC3 & BC4. Version 1.1.3
  • The Homunculus will now retract if it touches traps like Spikes. Version 1.1.3
  • The 5th money blueprint is now available ingame. Version 1.1.3
  • Community suggestion | The way the player's HP scales has been vastly rebalanced for Brutality and Tactic. You should have much more HP at higher levels, preventing from being one-shot (if your build is balanced).

Brutality used to give extra HP until level 14, it now caps at level 45 (30 for Tactic). Version 1.1.6

  • Community suggestion | Increased HP given for each scroll you pick. The new values are +60% HP for Brutality, +50% HP for Tactic and +70% HP for Survival. Version 1.1.6
  • Community suggestion | 3 shields are now Survival/Tactic: Punishment, Parry Shield and Knockback Shield. Version 1.1.6

Back to the Roots / Baguette (Version 0.7)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • Community suggestion The Forge has been completely updated. Our primary goal was to come back to the roguelite roots by giving you ways to upgrade your loots but without direct control on which item is upgraded (improvise, adapt, overcome!). The new Forge allows you to invest on drop frequency of each item quality. It's a guaranteed frequency : so if you have 25% for "+" quality items, 25% of all items found will be quality "+". You cannot invest on "++" until you have at least 50% "+" quality (same goes for "S" quality).
  • Community suggestion | A new Minor Forge allows you to reroll affixes on existing items, or upgrade them to higher quality levels (eg. from ++ to S). The reroll costs more & more as you use on a single item.
  • You may now drop random Legendary loots from enemies. These items are similar to "S-level" items: they are Colorless, deal/absorb more damage, have lots of properties, but have slightly less Tier bonuses. You may find these on any standard enemy (rare), on Elites (uncommon) or on Bosses (always).
  • The cooldown reduction mutation has been splitted into 2 distinct mutations: one for grenade cooldowns and another one for all other active skills.
  • Reworking of the Challenge Levels : The treasure is available at the entrance, but if you take it, you must cross the entire challenge level! First good news : don't worry, you won't be kicked out if you are hit. Second good news : no monsters, only traps! Good luck !
  • Community suggestion | A fraction of your existing progress on Forge item upgrades is now imported into the new Forge. Version 0.7.1
  • Community suggestion | Added Baguette food option Version 0.7.1
  • The Nightmare difficulty has been changed a lot. Enemy levels have been slightly reduced, but all of them will now give you an Infection marker on every single hit. If you reach 10 markers, you just die. Be careful, the food can also be infected (its state is written in the description): if you eat such a thing, you will still be healed as usual, but you'll also get 1 infection marker.

You can get rid of some of these markers using your Healing Flask and by eating clean food. Version 0.7.2

  • Difficulty settings have been slightly updated. 1-cell difficulty now has reduced fountains frequency, 2-cells has no fountain but minor refills and 3-cells has no fountain at all. Version 0.7.2
  • Fixed missing treasures in some Daily Runs. Version 0.7.3
  • Greatly increased the damage bonuses of all mutations that granted extra damage to make them more viable in higher difficulty levels (between x2 or x3 increase). Version 0.7.3
  • Community suggestion | All gold & gem drops have been rebalanced everywhere, resulting in less "I have tons of gold" issues, especially by the end of the game in high difficulty settings. Version 0.7.4

It's not a huge difference, but the idea is to make sure that Survival builds have a little bit more HP than Tactics for example.

The Foundry Update (Version 0.5)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • The leveling system has been updated and deeply re-balanced. The old secondary bonuses have been moved to the new Mutations mechanics. Points invested on tiers will now have the following effects:
    • Brutality : +15% damage on red items (mostly close combat weapons), +50% health
    • Tactics : +15% damage on violet items (mostly ranged weapons & skills), +50% health
    • Survival : +15% damage on green items (mostly heavy weapons & shields), +50% health

The health bonus gets smaller as you keep investing on a single stat.

Example: "1st Brutality tier gives +50% health, 2nd one gives +45%, 3rd one gives +40%, and so on until 0%. But if you decide to start investing on another stat, you start again at +50% health."

  • You can gain Mutations between each level, stacking up to 3 of them. These Mutations allow you to customize the extra bonuses you get from points invested in Brutality, Tactics or Survival. The philosophy here is to give the player ways to specialize and experiment.

A mutation can be:

    • scaled on a specific tier (brutality, tactics or survival), like: "+X HP when killing an enemy", "+X DPS when enemies are far away", or "+X DPS for 2 seconds after a kill". The mutation will get more powerful as you invest points in the related tier.
    • generic (ie. not scaled), like: "All bows ammo x2", "Longer rally effect duration" or "Longer speed buff duration".

Here are the concepts behind each tier:

    • Brutality mutations specialize on melee combat and damage buffs
    • Tactics mutations specialize on ranged & skills buffs
    • Survival mutations specialize on shields and healing from new sources (like leeching life from killed enemies).

You can re-specialize between levels if you need to (like, before a boss-fight), but this costs gold.

  • Community suggestion | All ranged weapons are now Tactics weapons first (some are dual-color).
  • Balanced all mobs damage and life. The concept here is: "mono-tiered builds are glass canons (lots of damage, almost no resistance), 2-tiers builds are balanced, 3-tiers build are resistant but weak".
  • It's now possible to drop level-up scrolls from random mobs. Such mobs have a yellow star above their head for you to spot them.
  • Community suggestion | It's no longer possible to one-shot a cursed door.
  • Most shields bugs should now be fixed (ie. shield capacity not triggering on parry, or parry not dealing crit damage). You shouldn't be control-locked anymore after a successful parry.
  • All shields parry window have been reduced slightly.
  • Enemy grenade repelling using a shield should now work all the time, even when the grenade is standing still on the ground.
  • Boss Runes can now be obtained from... well, bosses. Use these nasty little things in the Prisonner's Cells at the beginning of the game to make the whole game harder! Higher difficulty means more powerful mobs, less Healing Fountains (down to 0 on hardest mode, so please to get hit too much) and more cell drops. Also, each may area of the game may see other specific changes based on your difficulty setting, like new mob types in a level etc. Version 0.5.3
  • The Foundry is now open! It can only be accessed if you activated the Incomplete One Boss Rune. The Foundry will then appear after each boss fight.

It allows you to invest your Cells to upgrade any item you've unlocked. Each upgrade will give the item a permanent "Tier +1" affix (which depends on the item) and extra base power. For example, upgrading the Broad Sword once will add a permanent "Brutality +1" on it, and it will have more base affixes and more overall power!

As the Foundry is only accessible after specific levels in the game, you'll have to keep your cells with you instead of investing them with the Collector... Version 0.5.3

  • We fixed incorrect HP values displayed in the window that shows up when you pick a scroll. Previously, successive scrolls would give +50% HP, +45% HP, +40% HP etc. Fixed display now shows +50% HP, +30% HP, +21% HP etc. Dont worry: the "new" HP values may seem lower BUT the actual gameplay values were not changed at all. We only fixed an incorrect display. Version 0.5.11
  • Community suggestion | Hunter's Grenade can now transmute enemies even if they don't have an Elite version. In such a case, they turn into Elite Zombies. Version 0.5.11
  • Community suggestion | Hunter's Grenade now extracts a relevant blueprint from the target enemy if you already carry other blueprints in your bag. Version 0.5.11

Brutal Update (Version 0.4)[edit | edit source]

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • The world has changed. We're now preparing the final form of the game. Most levels have been updated to reflect this, including their difficulty, or their location on the world map.
  • The Watcher boss is now a mid-game boss, while the Assassin new boss becomes the final encounter. Note that the current game ending still isn't the final one: we plan to add the real game nemesis in a later update.
  • 2 new biomes have been added: the infamous Clock Tower and the mysterious Slumbering Sanctuary. Both include new enemies and loots.
  • The old tier system (ie. Strength/Skills/Health) has been replaced by Brutality / Tactic / Survival.
  • Brutality (red): includes all weapons (except shields)
  • Tactic (purple): include all active skills
  • Survival (green): include all shields

Some items (weapons or skills) are Dual colors, which means they can rely on 2 different stats, and use the highest value. You may also encounter random Colorless items: these ones will always use your best stat.

Here are the effects of these new 3 stats when you augment them:

  • Brutality (red): raise all red items damage, add +18% life
  • Tactic (purple): raise all purple items damage, reduce all active cooldowns
  • Survival (green): raise all green items damage, add +40% life

Your level-up decisions are much more important than ever.

  • Level up scrolls have been changed. You may find "classic" Power Scrolls that allow you to add +1 to any tier among 3, or Double Scrolls that only allow you to augment 1 stat among 2 (randomly chosen). Single forced scrolls are no longer a thing.
  • The way item stats/affixes are generated has been changed:
    • Based on their level, all offensive items (ie. item that deals damage) now have a "Damage +X%" stat, while all non-offensive items (ie. all other items) now have a "All damage received -X%" stat.
    • "Tier +1" affixes on Weapons and Skills are now only found from very specific sources (Treasures or shops) and are to be considered rare.
    • Talismans have a guaranteed "Tier +1/+2/+3", on item level III or more.
  • The Collector can no longer upgrade items using Cells. For now, his only role is to unlock new content. A whole new upgrade mechanic will come back in the next update, which should come shortly after this one!
  • A new special grenade can be unlocked at the collector (it will then appear in the Prison Cells). It allows you to hunt specific blueprints when the RNG is not being nice to you. Throw it on a mob that has unknown blueprints on him, fight him and right before killing it, use your grenade extracting ability to get your blueprint. No one said it would be easy.
  • All Cursed treasures now drop Colorless items. Right now, it's the only way to get this kind of item.
  • Community suggestion | You can now ask for specific item categories in Shops (like bows, or melee weapons) and reroll shop content if what you see is not interesting to you. However, these options are upgrades you have to buy using cells at the Collector.
  • Community suggestion | New Shield gameplay! You can now hold any shield as long as you want! If you hold a shield, a specific amount of damage received will be absorbed (around 75% for most shields). If you short-press and don't hold your shield, you'll attempt a PARRY. Like before, this technique allows you to negate all damage received, as well as most of the negative side effects of being hit (like being repelled). A successful parry is now a critical hit. It's a risk-reward mechanic: hold and take a small amount of damage, or try a full Parry with the risk of missing.
  • Community suggestion | You can now reflect enemy arrows using any shield! The amount of damage you deal depends on your Survival tier.
  • 10 new items, including weapons, shields and active skills!
  • 4 new enemy types!
  • A Castlevania inspired diet has been added in your game options :)
  • Community suggestion | The classic grenade has been splitted in 2 different grenades: one that deals damage on a large area, but with a longer cooldown, and one that deals strong damage on short area with short cooldown. Version 0.4.1
  • Community suggestion | We balanced pretty much every parts of the scaling system of the game. Scrolls now grant +25% damage instead of +43%, and all enemies & items have been updated. Everything should now feel more balanced. Feedbacks are more than welcome! Version 0.4.2
  • The Fog Fjord has been completely updated. The whole level design has changed and a few new mobs have been added. Version 0.4.3
  • You can now see a link between 2 mini teleporter in the sepulchre once you use one of them Version 0.4.7

Balancing

  • Community suggestion | Ammo stuck in a mob will now drop automatically after a few seconds, event if you don't kill him. It's still always faster to kill the enemy directly or use a grenade with the proper affix, but this should avoid stucked situations with "bow only" builds.
  • Community suggestion | The Tonic is now an item that can be refilled using Healing Fountains, so you can now use your tonic once per level. It can also be used even if your health is full. More "consumable active skills" will probably come later.
  • Community suggestion | All bows now have a slight auto-aim. They still shoot horizontally, but it's MUCH easier to shoot small enemies or mobs standing on lower platforms.
  • The Electric Whip is now a cool weapon again: its damage has been buffed up.
  • Horizontal turret and Ceil turret now have 1.5x longer range
  • The game timer is now paused when visiting Shops, Treasure rooms or Cursed Treasure rooms.
  • The Decoy active skill now explodes after a short time, dealing lots of damage to all nearby enemies.
  • Teleporting is now blocked if the caster is rooted (applies to some teleporting mobs or to the Phasing skill).
  • The Biter Swarm worms are now much much more resistant (like 10x stronger). The active skill cooldown has also been reduced.
  • Community suggestion | The Toxic Cloud skill is now twice faster to cast.
  • Community suggestion | The amount of HP recovered through the Rally Effect (the HP you recover when attacking immediately after being hit) is now capped. This cap can be raised by augmenting your Survival tier.
  • The Phazer skill now buffs the next attack, even if it's not a melee attack.
  • The Frost Blast weapon now inflicts lots of damage if the target is not frozen when it hits (it deals 0 damage if the target is already frozen).
  • Corrupted Power now adds extra damage instead of adding a fixed percentage. This extra damage is now scaled with the Tactic tier.
  • Community suggestion | Food items now restore a fixed percentage of your max HP.
  • The Phazer enemy is now a little bit faster. It's melee attack hitbox has also fixed.
  • Enemy grenades you repel with a shield do way more damage to enemies.
  • The Quick Bow deals a little extra damage.
  • Quick Bow now behaves like an autofire weapon (like the Repeater Crossbow). You can hold fire button to shoot quickly.
  • New shield affix: better damage absorption
  • New shield affix: bullet absorption
  • Sturdy shield: stun duration is now twice longer on successful Parry.
  • Shove shield: the bumping effect is now much more powerful on successful Parry.
  • Force shield: the force field now only triggers on a successful Parry. It also lasts much longer.
  • Blood shield: the bleeding only affects the blocked victim when holding the shield. It affects all nearby enemies on a successful Parry.
  • Spiked shield: inflicts much more damage.
  • The dash shield has been adapted to the new gameplay, including some balancing and minor bugfixes.
  • Situations where the player was standing on the edge of a platform and got bumped away off a platform by walking/idling enemies should now occur more rarely.
  • Community suggestion | Vampirism skill now applies to ranged attack too. Version 0.4.1
  • Lightning whip damage have been balanced. It also doesn't give you air control any more. Version 0.4.2
  • Cursed treasures no longer drop Scrolls. Version 0.4.2

  • Grenades should no longer break doors through walls (and therefore, you shouldn't be Cursed from accidentaly breaking a door through walls) Version 0.4.4
  • "Freeze on parry" shield affix now works properly Version 0.4.5
  • Invisible mobs no longer have the same damage buff as an invisible player. Version 0.4.8

Who's your daily? (Version 0.3)[edit | edit source]

August 17, 2017

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • Added the "Daily run" mode! Same level & loots for everyone, changing every day. You can try as many times as you want to rank up: only your best score is kept in the leaderboard.
  • A new ability is available at the Collector booth. It allows you to sell items lying on the ground and you don't want! Just long-press the "pick-up" button of your controller when in front of a useless item. It will be destroyed and turned into gold. This ability works on most weapons, active skills, talismans and food items.
  • Community suggestion | Gold keeping has been completely rebalanced. Instead of "keep X% of your gold upon death", the new upgrade now allows you to "keep at max X gold upon death". It goes from keeping 3k gold up to 15k gold.
  • Added new achievements !
  • Speed combo: if you kill enemies quickly enough, you will be granted a temporary run speed boost. Keep killing enemies to maintain this advantage!
  • Many many minor ergonomic changes have been made to the hero movements to make your undead life easier (see below for more details). We fixed and adjusted many small things like: ladder transition speed, jump through thin platforms, hard to "grab" platforms etc.
  • Added the Items Altar : there is 2 items, but you can choose only one! Version 0.3.6
  • Added 2 new weapon blueprints and 1 new active skill blueprint as rewards for Daily Runs you complete (that is killing the boss). You can only get rewards once a day. The first reward is given on the first time you beat the Daily Run, the second one the fifth time and the last one the when you beat your tenth Daily Run. Version 0.3.9
  • Daily Run: Some items are now forbidden. You need to unlock them in the normal mode to use them in Daily Run mode.

Important note: we have plans to give you ways to "re-lock" items you have unlocked but don't want to see in normal mode, but it won't come before Update 4. Also, we'll also make sure that insanely rare drops are not a thing in Dead Cells: this drop system balance will also make it to the Update 4. Version 0.3.9

  • Community suggestion | If you have unlocked one of the 3 "Random weapon" upgrades, you will now be able to find the good' old rusty start weapons hidden somewhere inside the flask room. Just in case you need them for, like, an achievement. Version 0.3.10
  • Added experimental DirectX support (available on beta branch only). Version 0.3.10

Balancing

  • The run timer is now paused when you are in a challenge room
  • You can now exit a ladder from the top faster by rolling on last second (see: http://gph.is/2tx5NQk )
  • Community suggestion | It's now a little "harder" to grab ladders on-the-fly when playing with the sticks on a gamepad. This means that you need to move your stick further to UP or DOWN to grab a ladders, so it's not possible anymore to grab a ladder using LEFT+UP for example. This should reduce accidental ladder grabs during combats.
  • You should find precious gems a little more often on mobs.
  • The dive attack should now allow you to jump through thin platforms in relevant situations. Before this change, you may have sometime "missed" your dive attack when you tried to use it and jump through a thin platform at the same time (resulting in a very short dive attack on the spot).

  • Fixed some situations where it was "difficult" to jump through a thin platform using double jumps.
  • Add some anticipation for the Watcher "bullet hell" attack

  • The Mechanical Spider grenade damage have been reduced. Version 0.3.2
  • The way the hero life scales has been slightly changed (you get +48% extra life each time you pick +1 LIFE, instead of +41%). Version 0.3.2
  • The Crusher active skill blueprint is now a Common drop, and not a Rare one anymore. Version 0.3.10

Level design[edit | edit source]

  • Enemies should no longer start in toxic in sewers (they can still fall it though)
  • Added many new variations to Promenade level design

  • Added new variations for rooms that require Vine or Rub-rub runes

Hello Darkness my old friend (Version 0.2)[edit | edit source]

June 29, 2017

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • The levels organization has been vastly changed: Ancient Sewers cannot be reached anymore from the Promenade, while Ossuary leads to... well. Let's call these, "new places". A few other changes happened to the loot balance pretty much everywhere.

Explore a whole new area located right after the Ossuary... Hope you don't fear darkness.

  • 2 new enemy types! We can't spoil you too much about them, but we really look forward to them killing you.
  • New gameplay mechanic: the Darkness. Stay for too long into it and you're dead.
  • New weapons, including Hayabusa boots, or High velocity crossbow!
  • All shops now contain 5 items instead of 4.
  • Added option to deactivate Steam Cloud, including an optional transfer of files between local only and Steam cloud.
  • Community suggestion | If a Workshop mod is available for your language, it is now automatically installed.
  • Community suggestion | We know you LOVE the shocker enemy from the Ossuary, so we doubled their frequency. Oh. Wait. No, we actually divided their frequency by 2. And we made sure their positionning was much more balanced. Version 0.2.1
  • Installed workshop mods are now automatically update Version 0.2.1
  • We removed the Shield breach mechanic completely. If your Strength was too low, your shield could be "breached" by high level enemies. This is no longer the case, allowing new combinations like using a shield efficiently with a Skill based build. This is meant to be tested and balanced with a future shield update. Version 0.2.2
  • The "Super deal" mechanic of shops has been changed (you know, when you see an item in a shop with a large green banner behind it). A super deal is now an item that has a guaranteed tier+1 affix on it, which STACKS with all its regular other affixes. A tier+1 affix is one that augments Health, Weapon or Skill. Version 0.2.3

Balancing[edit | edit source]

  • The Quickbow now only requires 2 arrows to grant criticals instead of 3
  • The amount of cells you can drop have been balanced everywhere. Gold drops also have been adjusted.
  • The shovel attacks much more quickly.
  • Shocker mob from Ossuary can be frozen
  • The broadsword can now hit enemies behind you
  • Community suggestion | The Frantic Sword has been totally rebalanced. Regarding damage, it now stands right between light weapons and heavy ones.
  • Community suggestion | The Spiteful Sword has been redone: it still deals critical blows after getting hit by an enemy, but it's now faster and the third strike has been replaced a kick that stuns the enemy. Which is much more fun.
  • Community suggestion | The Sadist sword is now a dagger: it deals a critical blow if the victim is either bleeding, poisoned or burning.
  • The long bow (sniper) is now faster.
  • Community suggestion | We nerfed the free forcefield duration you get when you have a shield equiped. We plan another update (but later) on shields gameplay, so this nerf is more like a "hotfix".
  • Community suggestion | The Tonic now heals twice more and grants a global shield when used.
  • Community suggestion | Reduce Shield of the Behemoth when is changing phase
  • Added extra treasures behind the Timed door in Ossuary, for those who are fast enough to get them, of course. Version 0.2.1

Elemental (Version 0.1)[edit | edit source]

May 31, 2017

Important features[edit | edit source]

  • New elemental gameplay! For example, Fire & Oil have been totally redone. You can now put oil on the ground, put it on fire and watch your enemies die in awful ways. Or maybe will you appreciate the new interactions between electricity and water? For science!
  • Community suggestion | New weapons, including mace, torches, spear etc.
  • Community suggestion | New active skills, including Ceil Turret or Vampirism.
  • Added many new affixes that will change weapons, active skills & talisman gameplay, including many new elemental affixes (like leaving a toxic cloud when dodging).
  • Community suggestion | Shield gameplay buffed! If you have a shield equiped and get hit by anything, you will be granted a temporary global force field. This means that equiping a Shield now allow you to have a much more efficient defensive gameplay style: you basically can't be chain-hit by multiple enemies. This change affects all existing shields. Also, we fixed a bug that prevented you from using a shield to block multiple attacks. Now, if you're good enough and do it in proper timing, you can now block ANY number of successive attacks coming at you.
