Version 2.2.0 introduces the Ascendancy expansion, which adds new content and features as well as vast changes to the existing game.

Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 2.2.0 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

Important Note

Due to substantial balance changes, every existing character has been granted an optional full passive reset. To use this, click the "Reset all Passives" button on the passive skill screen. Note that you must use this before allocating or refunding any other points otherwise the option will go away.

The Trials of Ascendancy

Seeking a worthy successor, Emperor Izaro constructed deadly trials throughout Wraeclast to find candidates.

  • There are six Trials of Ascendancy to solve in each difficulty level. Completing each of these Trials unlocks the Lord's Labyrinth in that difficulty level.
  • Trials are present in the Axiom Prison, Crypt, Chamber of Sins, Crematorium, Catacombs and Hedge Maze.
  • Each Trial introduces you to a particular type of trap. Learn well, as these traps will be combined in complex situations in the Labyrinth.
  • Higher difficulties have more difficult trials.
  • Tagging the plaque at the end of a completed trial will show your progress through that difficulty.
  • It will also open a portal back to the start of the trial so you can resume your exploration.
  • Once you have completed all of the Trials in one difficulty level, you can access the entrance to the Labyrinth in the Sarn Encampment (Act Three town).

The Lord's Labyrinth

Having proved your mettle in the Trials of Ascendancy, you earn the right to enter Izaro's Labyrinth. Centuries have passed, but the traps are as dangerous as the day they were activated.

  • The Lord's Labyrinth is a new area full of traps, secrets and puzzles. It is unlocked by completing the Trials of Ascendancy in that difficulty level.
  • Dying in the Labyrinth ends the run for you. You must survive all the way through in one attempt If you leave the Labyrinth (for example, via a portal to town), then you cannot return to that run. You must start the Labyrinth again.
  • The Labyrinth's layout changes once every day. You can run it multiple times on the same day using information you have learnt from previous runs. Hidden passages, along with secret rooms and their rewards stay the same for every run on a given day.
  • You'll encounter Emperor Izaro three times during the Labyrinth. The fight mechanics are randomised each day. The way you play each fight influences how much of that mechanic makes its way into the next fight.
  • You can earn Treasure Keys by killing Izaro and by completing certain challenges throughout the Labyrinth. These keys can be used to unlock reward chests at the end of the Labyrinth, in the reward room. This room also contains the devices that allow you to pick an Ascendancy class and Enchant one of your items.
  • You can attempt the Labyrinth in a party, but once the Labyrinth entrance has been opened, no more party members may join that Labyrinth run.
  • You can access your Stash before each Izaro encounter in the Labyrinth.
  • The solo player who completes the Labyrinth the fastest each day in each difficulty and each league will receive a special Unique Jewel as a reward. You can see the ranking of Labyrinth times for the day on the website. There are different rewards for each difficulty level. There are three difficulty levels and four leagues, so twelve rewards are given out each day.
  • Special Labyrinth Items like keys and trinkets cannot be removed from the Labyrinth. These items also bypass item filters so that they are always visible to you.

Ascendancy Classes

Nineteen souls survived the Trials of Ascendancy. Nineteen men and women stood at the gates of the Lord's Labyrinth. Nineteen challengers whose exceptional martial and mystical talents still linger long after their death.

  • Upon completing the Lord's Labyrinth for the first time, your character can choose one of the three Ascendancy Classes available to its core class.
  • There are nineteen total Ascendancy classes. Each core class has three Ascendancy classes available that embody a different playstyle. The Scion has one Ascendancy class that reinforces her mastery of the passive skill tree.
  • Upon completing the Lord's Labyrinth for the first time in each difficulty level, you receive two Ascendancy Skill Points you can spend on skills available to your Ascendancy Class.
  • Respeccing an allocated Ascendancy Skill costs five passive skill refund points. Once you have refunded all your allocated Ascendancy points, you can pick a different * Ascendancy Class (at no cost) by completing the Labyrinth again and selecting a new class.
  • Once you have chosen an Ascendancy Class, you can view its skill tree on the Passive Skill Tree near your character's start location.

Enchantments

  • Each time you complete the Lord's Labyrinth, you can imbue one of your items with an Enchantment.
  • Enchanting an item replaces any existing implicits, including previous Enchantments. They are always fixed values, so Blessed Orbs will have no effect on them. Though they share the same colours as master-crafted explicit mods, you can have both on an item.
  • When you enchant your gloves in Normal difficulty, they gain a triggered "Word" skill. This skill can't be modified by support gems, but is powerful enough on its own. It can be modified by your item stats and passive tree stats.
  • When you enchant gloves in Cruel difficulty, they gain a triggered "Edict" skill, a more powerful version of the Word skills.
  • In Merciless difficulty, your gloves gain "Decree" skills, which are even more powerful versions of the Words and Edicts.
  • From Cruel difficulty onwards, you can choose to enchant your boots. When you do this, they gain a powerful stat that only applies when you meet certain conditions. Some boot enchantments are weaker but easier to activate, while others are powerful but harder to trigger. When an enchantment says "recently", it refers to the past four seconds. This new wording is also used elsewhere in the game.
  • In Merciless difficulty, you can choose to enchant your helmet. It'll gain a bonus that only applies to a specific skill. There are two or three of these skill-specific stats for every player skill in the game, amounting to over 300 in total.

Perandus Challenge Leagues

  • Challenge leagues are a great opportunity for a fresh start in a new economy. All your old characters and items are still present in the Standard and Hardcore leagues, but you're encouraged to join the new leagues, complete challenges and climb the ladder!
  • With 2.2.0, there are Standard and Hardcore variations of the Perandus challenge league available. They have the same core mechanics and items.
  • The Perandus Challenge Leagues offer the wealth of the Eternal Empire. Discover caches of Perandus family treasure, slay their guardians, and claim the coins contained within. Trade these coins to Cadiro Perandus himself to receive vital equipment and ancient artefacts.
  • Six of the new Unique Items in this expansion are exclusive to the Perandus challenge leagues. They include one unique map and five ancient treasures.
  • The new challenge leagues include a set of 40 new challenges. When you complete 12 challenges, you receive the Perandus Footprints Effect. At 24, you receive the Perandus Weapon Effect. When you complete your 36th challenge, you receive the Perandus Portal Effect. These microtransactions are only available in this league.
  • From the 19th challenge onwards and for every third challenge after that, you receive pieces of a Perandus Totem Pole decoration to display in your hideout. The Totem Pole permanently showcases how many of the Perandus challenges you completed during the league.

Utility Flask Balance

  • Resistance Flasks have been reduced to +6% maximum resistance. They all now last for 4 seconds (increased from 3.5). It's getting easier to dramatically increase maximum resistances, so this change is designed to partially counteract the new tools such as the Flask Effect mod and new Ascendancy options.
  • Quartz Flasks, now lasts for 4 seconds (down from 5 seconds) and consume 30 of 60 charges (down from 40 of 60). They now provide 10% Dodge and Spell Dodge, as well as Phasing.
  • Jade Flasks now lasts 4 seconds (down from 5 seconds) and consume 30 of 60 charges (down from 40 of 60).
  • Diamond Flasks now last for 4 seconds (increased from 3.5 seconds) and consume 20 of 40 charges (down from 80 of 80).
  • Quicksilver Flasks now last for 4 seconds (down from 5 seconds).
  • These changes affect existing Utility Flasks that your characters have. No legacy versions are created.

Passive Skill Balance

  • The Nightstalker notable passive now grants 50% Increased Critical Strike Chance with Daggers (down from 60%). The nodes prior to Nightstalker now grant 20% increased Critical Strike Chance with Daggers each (down from 30% each). One of the nodes on the Adder's Touch path now grants 20% increased Critical Strike Chance with Daggers (down from 30%). Daggers already have the highest implicit critical strike chance for all melee weapons, and have crit on their weapons, so they didn't also need the most critical strike chance in the tree. These weapons still have the most available critical chance/multiplier, just not the highest per skill as well.
  • The passive skills in the Precision cluster (including the notable passive) now each grant an additional 3% cast speed, in order to make the cluster better for casters. As a related change, the two 3% cast speed skills in the Light of Divinity cluster have been replaced by 10% spell damage.

  • The attributes granted by early Shadow passive skills have been adjusted. This is because Chaos casters need intelligence and elemental attackers need dexterity. Coordination has been changed from 20 Dexterity to 10 Dexterity and 10 Intelligence. Trickery has been changed from 20 Intelligence to 10 Dexterity and 10 Intelligence.

Critical Strike Rework/Balance
