Ascendancy Skill Balance

  • The Hierophant skill Conviction of Power has been corrected to grant a power charge when you or your totem kills an enemy.
  • The Guardian skill Prayer of Glory now also has "Your Warcries cost no mana."
  • The Ascendant Guardian skill now also has "Your Party members share Charges."
  • The Guardian skill Bastion of Hope now has a radius of 60 (increased from 40). This radius is no longer affected by bonuses to the radius of skills.
  • These Ascendancy changes are not intended to be exhaustive, but are a small subset of the more cohesive set of improvements coming in 2.3.0.

Balance

  • Summoned Totems are now deleted when the player moves very far away from those totems. This caused issues with the Hierophant skill "Ritual of Awakening" where you would receive less damage per active totem. Those totems would be very far away and unable to attack or cast yet would still penalise the player's damage.
  • The passive skill Shaman's Dominion has been changed to use "Recently" instead of four seconds.
  • The "increased Shield Charge Damage per Enemy Hit" enchantment was not intended to go live (it was experimental and did not yet work), and has been removed.
  • Added an enchantment for Explosive ArrowExplosive ArrowFire, Attack, Projectile, AoE, Duration, Bow
    Radius: 15
    Mana Cost: (18-27)
    Cast Time: 1.00 sec
    Critical Strike Chance: 6.00%
    Projectile Speed: 3260
    Requires Level 28Fires an arrow which acts as a short duration fuse. Applying additional arrows to an enemy extends the duration. When the target dies or the fuses expire, the arrows explode, dealing fire AoE damage to nearby enemies. The AoE radius is proportional to the number of arrows upon death.Per 1% Quality:
    1% chance to Ignite enemies
    Base duration is 1 seconds

    that increases attack speed.
  • The Discipline Enchantment for reduced mana costs has been changed to 14% to be consistent with other aura mana reduction enchantments.
  • Attempting to place more traps than the maximum trap count will now always destroy the oldest traps. This fixes an issue when using multiple trap skills with different maximum trap counts.
  • Daily master missions will now always generate at a difficulty which will allow the player entry. The level will not change, however. If the player is at too low a level to enter, the difficulty of the daily mission will be lowered.
  • Phantom Impalers now use Ice Traps.
  • Lowered SparkSparkSpell, Projectile, Duration, Lightning
    Mana Cost: (5-23)
    Cast Time: 0.65 sec
    Critical Strike Chance: 6.00%
    Projectile Speed: 560

    Base duration is 2 seconds
    Fires (4-6) additional Projectiles

    's damage in PvP by 1% per gem level up to level 10, then 2% per gem level (damage reduced by 10% at level 10, and by 30% at level 20). Spark's tendency to completely coat the battlefield in unavoidable damage was making PvP matches extremely unfun, especially at high levels. While this doesn't solve the core issue of spark's unavoidable damage, it should give players a chance to close the gap.
