Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 0.9.13 released by Grinding Gear Games.

  • Removed special chests from the Den in the Old Fields and from the Weaver's Chambers. All dungeon areas now have a chance of spawning a special chest. There is also now a guaranteed one in the Dread Thicket.
  • Utility Flasks now have new art. This only affects flasks found after this patch.
  • Added seven new Unique items, five of which have been designed by our Diamond supporters.
  • Further improved the randomness of the Western Forest area.
  • Continued to incrementally improve the art, effects, environments and sound.

Player vs. Player Arenas

  • We've added support for PvP arenas.
  • Initially there are both 1 vs. 1 and 3 vs. 3 matches available.
  • You can either play Level 28 Capped PvP in Normal difficulty or Open PvP in Merciless difficulty (with resistance penalties).
  • Level 28 Capped PvP requires that you haven't entered Cruel difficulty and are not higher than level 28.
  • To enter PvP, talk to Greust and click "Join PvP". If you're in a party, then your whole party will be placed in a queue. If any member of your party cancels then the whole party is removed from the queue.
  • Once there are enough players to form teams of the right sizes, you'll be transported to a random arena. 3v3 arenas are generally larger.
  • During the match, up to nine rounds are played. The first team to win five rounds will be declared the match winner.
  • In 1v1 matches, a round is declared a draw after 90 seconds.
  • In 3v3 matches, the time limit is 120 seconds, but draws are only awarded if the teams have equal numbers of players alive.
  • Because of the best-of-nine effect, every two draws will reduce the number of wins a team needs by one.
  • Teams are coloured Red and Blue and are given a coloured aura effect.
  • There are dead monster corpses in the arenas that can be raised as minions.
  • Traps, mines, totems, auras, buffs and minions are destroyed between rounds.
  • Like any other spell, casting your auras is part of the PvP fight and can't be done beforehand.
  • Flasks are replenished by a few charges between PvP rounds. It's important to manage flasks properly - if you use them all too fast then you'll be at a big disadvantage in later rounds.
  • Hardcore deaths in PvP arenas are currently not permanent. We'll be adding permadeath hardcore PvP options soon.
  • Different login gateways have different PvP queues, for latency reasons. For example, if you're on the American gateway and want to play PvP with your European friends, you'll have to change over to the other gateway and join the queue there. This will of course be at a higher latency as you'll be playing on European servers.
  • If you're dead in a 3v3 match, your view will spectate another team member.

Other Features

  • Revamped the appearance of the hint box that appears when you kill the first zombie.
  • The Merveil, Brutus and Vaal Oversoul fights now lock the door behind you for the duration of the fight, so that players aren't able to retreat to the linked area. Portals are still allowed.
  • Bandits now emerge from tents properly rather than just appearing.
  • Updated the character selection screen so that it matches other parts of the UI. Leagues are now also shown with icons.
  • Spawn can now emerge from the ground in certain cave areas.
  • You can now use arrow keys in the vendor window to change between tabs of items to buy.
  • Killing Brutus or Merveil will now grant the next waypoint.
  • Characters will now occasionally comment on the deaths of rare monsters.

General Balance

  • Resolute Technique's "Always Hit" now only works for accuracy/evasion rolls. The Acrobatics keystone can avoid it.
  • Minion Instability is now scaled correctly by stats such as minion damage. This large functional change required its explosion to be reduced to 33% of the minion's life rather than 100%.
  • Packs of goatmen in non-Map areas now only have a maximum of one Goat Shaman in them at most.

Active Skill Balance

  • Ground Slam now attacks at the speed of your weapon.
  • Flattened progression of the Blind support gem - lower levels of the gem were improved, higher levels reduced.
  • Reduced the life of raised zombies and summoned totems by around 10%.
  • Reduced Flame Totem's damage by 14% and life by an additional 30%.
  • Doubled the mana cost of curses.
  • Reduced the effect of the Temporal Chains curse, due to being overpowered in both PvE and PvP. This also affects the version that Maps inflict on you.
  • Rescaled Poison Arrow. It now starts off around 85% stronger at level 1 and is about 1% weaker at level 15.
  • Reduced the effect of higher levels of the Clarity aura.
  • Viper Strike is now 38% better at level 1 and 3% better at level 15.
  • Puncture is now scaled to start much stronger with a flatter progression to match other melee skills that scale weapon damage.

Passive Skill Tree Changes

  • The Chance to Dodge passives between Acrobatics and Phase Acrobatics are now 3%/3%/2%/2% rather than all being 1%.
  • Reduced the opening Marauder life passive from 15% to 13%.
  • Split out 10 Strength from Heart of the Gladiator to a new node.
  • Increased Perfect Aim to being 15% Projectile Damage/+20 Dexterity (from +15%/+10).
  • Changed Templar life node connections to increase traversal speed.
  • Increased Templar life regeneration node to 1% from .8%.
  • Changed Templar Spell Damage nodes to Elemental Damage nodes.
  • Increased second Duelist Attack Speed node on right side to 4%.
  • Increased the early Duelist one handed and two handed attack speed nodes to 4%.
  • Moved life as an early option into Duelist choices.
  • Added a 1% life regeneration node to the Duelist area.
  • Moved the Shadow Trap nodes much further out.
  • In the Shadow area, added an early life cluster where the Trap cluster was. This life cluster includes flat life.
  • Moved Iron Reflexes closer to the Ranger area and further from the Marauder.
  • Added a cluster of "Critical Strike Chance/Multiplier while wielding a Staff" passives.
