Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 0.10.8 released by Grinding Gear Games.

Content

  • Added four new Unique items, three of which were designed by our Diamond supporters. There are new general mechanics that first appear on these items:
  • New vendor recipes have been added. These are for specific niche purposes rather than being general currency recipes.
  • "Extra gore" effects granted by certain Unique items have been improved, along with slight changes to normal blood effects.
  • Added two new cosmetic microtransactions: Demon Hand Cleave and Emerald Rain of Arrows.
  • The Alternate Art Redbeak given out in the first race season has been given custom 3d art.
  • Graphical Effects have been given to the 3D models for Quill Rain and Rathpith Globe.
  • Continued to incrementally improve the art, effects and environments and audio.

Features

  • Improved the forced delay on acceptance when other trader changed or removed items and rapidly accepted in single item trades.
  • Reverb has been added to audio in selected areas. Some players may need to adjust their audio volumes in response to this.
  • Boss music now stops on boss death.
  • NPCs turn to face the player when dialogue is initiated.
  • Website forum searches now allow time based queries and filters.
  • Skill Gems now display Mana Multiplier instead of Mana Cost Multiplier.
  • Added a letter from Piety to Arteri in The Western Forest, with a voice acted passage that explains more of the story related to The Way Forward quest.
  • Added the Letters of Exile in Lioneye's Watch. This object can be clicked to show information about the history of some of Wraeclast's exiles.

Merciless/Map Changes

  • The content levels for several Act 3 Merciless areas have been changed:
  • Non-map areas cannot drop Maps with a base level higher than 66.
  • Each map type now contains a special monster pack based on the theme of the area. This creates a monster variety between map types that players can plan around and lets us adjust the challenge of different map types beyond their size and layout.
  • The threshold level for currency penalty is unchanged. You will not be treated as being higher than level 68 for purposes of the currency penalty.
  • Merciless Piety now has a dedicated map drop slot with a chance to drop a level 66 map.
  • The Catacombs now has a Scribe's Rack chest that can drop scrolls or maps.
  • The Marketplace waypoint has been moved to being outside Catacombs entrance.
  • Previously, the item rarity bonuses of monsters would not affect any Maps that were dropped. This limitation has been removed, which means that bosses like Piety are likely to drop magic/rare Maps rather than white ones.
