Update October 20, 2020


NEW ADDITIONS

  1. Added a Reputation Tab to the journal. Now you can look up your Reputation level at any time and see how exactly it influences your character.
  2. Consumables for brigands: brigands are now spawned with a random supply of bandages, splints, and vivifying essences, which they can use to deal with bleeding, injuries, or low Health.
  3. Added two new variations of Wraiths to high level crypts.
  4. Ghasts and Necromancers learned a new skill - "Binding Sigil".

BALANCE

  1. Rebalanced enchantments. The randomness of stat bonuses was removed - each enchantment stat bonus is now a static value, which is overall slightly lower than the maximum values you could potentially roll in previous versions of the game.
  2. Enchantment scrolls now apply a single enchantment instead of two. Magic items (items with two enchantments) can only be acquired as loot from enemies and containers.
  3. These are just temporary measures, meant to reduce the amount of save scumming (if not to negate it) associated with enchantments before the release of the rarity system update, which is planned for the next year.
  4. Rebalanced curses. There were also some changes made to curses and cursed items (they will be greatly updated and expanded upon next year as well).
  5. The chance for a curse to trigger now grows significantly slower, and killing enemies is also much more effective at slowing it down. Additionally, curses are now several times stronger than before, making them feel more dangerous.
  6. The changes apply to curses’ stat bonuses as well - some of them didn’t work properly with certain equipment types, so they were fixed or straight up changed.
  7. Curse of Everfear: +N Unholy Damage > -5% Damage Taken. Low Morale improves the bonus.
  8. Curse of Gnawmaw: +10% > +13% Life Drain. Hunger and Thirst improve the bonus.
  9. Curse of Goldhoarder: +25% Lock-picking & Disarming > +13% Experience Gain. High amounts of gold in the inventory improve the bonus.
  10. Curse of Gorelust: +10% > +13% Weapon Damage. Low Health improves the bonus.
  11. Curse of Soulstealer: +10% > +13% Energy Drain. Low Energy improves the bonus.
  12. Curse of Sufferjoy: +7% > +10% Crit Chance. High Pain improves the bonus.
  13. Curse of Loudmouth: +N Psionic Damage > +10% Control Resistance.
  14. Curse descriptions were tweaked, improving their transparency, and their effects are now registered in the battle log.
  15. "Raise Shield" no longer grants Dodge Chance if its value was negative when the ability was activated.
  16. Increased Control Resistance for skeleton enemies.
  17. Added Bleed Resistance to Restless and Ghasts.

  20. Bottom dungeon floors are now generated with 20% less rooms.
  21. Reduced Dodge Chance for Chronomancer Mantle.
  22. Slightly increased "weight" for skeletons, restless, mages, and archers - they will now spawn in smaller numbers.

  24. Lowered the chance of food and alcohol drops in Bastion containers.
  25. Overall reduced life span for most food types.
