Official patch notes[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!
