Version history

Version Changes
3.0.2
  • Desecrate can now only create monsters that are in the instance it is used in. In areas where no monsters have spawned, a specific desecrate table is used. This fixes a longstanding bug with the desecration list that had further problems introduced due to persistent spectres.
2.3.0
  • Reworked Spirit Eater:
    • Desecrate creates 2 additional Corpses
1.1.0
  • The maximum level of a created corpse has been changed to being higher than the required level of the skill.
    This scales up to a monster level cap of 100 by level 20 of the gem.
  • Desecrate also now enforces a limit of 15 corpses at a time.
1.0.6b
  • Fixed a bug where corpses created by Desecrate weren't limited by the level requirement of the gem.
1.0.6
  • Desecrate has been added to the game.
