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.
Ice Crossbow, Repeater Crossbow and the new Shop category haven’t been tweaked yet, but we’re working on improve them. Other changes in this patch would have collided with these tweaks so we decided to put them of for now.
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 to replace your two-handed weapon.
Two-handed weapons can no longer appear as starting gear until the Armory is unlocked.
Modified Explosive Crossbow secondary hit to crit upon direct hit and push back ennemies further.
Improved one-shot protection to prevent some unfair deaths related to combos.
The Duelyst is now named Dancer and occasionnally dash behind you before stabbing you in the back. Omae wa mo shindeiru.

Slammer and Toxic Miasma damage slightly decreased.
Mob density has been slightly reduced in BC1 and higher.

Lightning Whip damage reduced to compensate for the new additional damage coming from the shock status.
