Version History

Version Changes
  • Now adds 2 to 3 physical damage to attacks at gem level 1, up to 75 to 113 at gem level 20.
  • Now gains 1% increased area of effect per 2% gem quality.
  • Vaal Ground Slam now requires 50% more souls per use, and can only store three uses. The area of effect radius bonus has been reduced from 30% to 20%.
  • Vaal Skill soul counts were initially balanced for Merciless difficulty, where there are more monsters. We want them to be easier to use in Normal and Cruel difficulty. We have halved the number of souls required for each skill. In Cruel difficulty, skills require 50% more souls to uses. In Merciless difficulty, they require 100% more (which is the same as before the patch).
  • Introduced to the game.
