Version history

Version Changes
3.10.0
  • Scorch and Brittle (alternate ailments for Fire and Cold damage respectively) have both had their maximum effects raised. Scorch reduces elemental resistances by a maximum of 30% (from 20%). Brittle now increases the chance to critically strike an afflicted enemy by up to 15% (from 10%). Scorch, Brittle and Sap now all have a base duration of 4 seconds (from 2).
3.9.0
  • We've added an Ailment Threshold to monsters. In the great majority of cases, the Ailment Threshold matches the monster's Maximum Life. It primarily differs for especially high-life monsters (such as The Shaper), where the threshold is reduced to allow ailments to be applied with hits that wouldn't ordinarily reach the required Life thresholds.
  • The alternate ailments Sap, Scorch and Brittle have a slightly different calculation as they have lower caps on their magnitudes.
3.6.0
  • Now grants up to +10% chance to critically strike afflicted enemies. This chance is further increased by sources of increased Critical Strike Chance, whereas previously, as the result of a bug, it was not.
3.5.0
  • Introduced to the game.
  • Updated the reminder text for Ailments to include the 3 new Ailments.
  • (Stated in patch preview) Hits have up to +20% Critical Strike Chance against Brittle Enemies, based on the Cold Damage of the Hit which inflicted Brittle, for 2 seconds.[1]
