A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Vaal Spectral Throw is a vaal projectile attack that throws a copy of the player's melee weapon, spiralling outwards from the character and hitting enemies in its path.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Terrain: Compared to the regular Spectral Throw, projectiles from Vaal Spectral Throw will disappear if they connect with terrain.
  • Projectile Speed: Vaal Spectral Throw acts different regarding projectile speed compared to most other spells. It has a set distance the projectiles can travel compared to having a set lifetime. So while increasing projectile speed makes the projectiles cover the area faster, it also makes the projectiles disappear faster instead of increasing the distance it covers.

Version History

Version Changes
1.1.0d
  • 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).
