PvE Changes[edit | edit source]

Back in May, Shadow Form had its duration increased and emerged as a key part of several highly efficient farming builds. To lower the efficiency of Shadow Form farming without removing it as an option, we are changing both the skill and some creatures in the Underworld.

Assassin[edit | edit source]
  • Shadow Form: the caster of this skill now does 50% less damage while it is active.
Underworld[edit | edit source]

For more information on these changes visit the Developer Updates page.

Bug Fixes[edit | edit source]

Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]

  • Added dialogue to the Xunai [sic] Tournament Agent to remind players to register their account.
  • Changed Guardsman Zingpah’s dialogue in Kaineng Center to reduce confusion.
  • Improved Hero AI to use skills such as Conjure Flame and Ebon Dust Aura based on their weapon’s current damage type when effects changing the damage (such as Winter or Staggering Force) are active.
  • Improved Hero AI for the Assassin skill Shattering Assault. Heroes will now use this skill if the target is not enchanted.
  • Improved Hero response to a player manually ordering them to use a skill. Heroes should now respond faster to orders.
  • Improved Hero AI for the Dervish skill Pious Assault. Heroes will now use this skill even if they are not enchanted.
  • Improved Hero AI for the Assassin skill Disrupting Dagger. Heroes will now use this skill to interrupt spellcasting enemies rather than use it frequently against non-casting targets.
  • Improved Hero AI for the Dervish skill Conviction. Heroes will now use this skill even if they are not enchanted.
