Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.8.1 released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

Blight Improvements

  • Increased the amount of reward chests from each lane in Blighted Maps.
  • The rewards from Blighted Maps can now include Oils.
  • Reduced the amount of monsters that spawn during Blighted Maps. The intention is to reduce the impact on performance while still retaining difficulty.
  • Reduced the chance that Blighted Monsters will create Beyond Portals on death in Blighted Maps.
  • Blighted monsters can no longer have the Cannot Die, Shroud Walker, Soul Conduit, Fractured or Group Frenzy on Death modifiers.
  • Blighted monsters that cast Proximity Shield can no longer cast the skill if they are already inside of a Proximity Shield. Blighted monsters that have active Proximity Shields will now disable them if they become affected by another shield. This should result in far less overlap.
  • Reduced the Life of Minions spawned by Summoning Towers. Increased the amount of delay before new minions are summoned after an existing set of minions has died.
  • Increased the life of Minions spawned by Sentinel Towers but added a short delay before they are summoned again after dying.
  • Substantially increased the damage of minions summoned by a Scout Tower.
  • Added telegraphing effects to Knucklegnaw's Slam skill.
  • The split-versions of Sporeplume now deal less damage, take more damage, and have a shorter attack range.
  • Prophecies can no longer trigger when entering Blighted Maps.
  • You can no longer use a Blighted Map as part of an Atlas Mission, as they do not work. They did not previously consume Atlas Missions because of this.
  • Hovering over a tower-building UI element now indicates that it is less effective against Blighted enemies of the same type (as shown on the Blight Portal UI)."
  • Updated the names of some ring enchantments so that their name matches their effect. This doesn't affect the functionality of existing items at all.
  • The Ball Lightning skill used by Ephrexis, Blight Strider now releases additional smaller Ball Lightning projectiles as it travels.
  • Ystral, Winter Stalker now uses a more dangerous version of his Sunder skill.
  • Fixed a bug where Blight Portals could spawn too close to the Ichor Pump.
  • Fixed a bug where Rattleback, Hollow Matriarch could become immune to damage if it died while Petrified.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented Banisher of the Cleansed from spawning.
  • Fixed a bug where Blight Towers and Minions summoned by Blight Towers were benefiting from Map Modifiers.
  • Fixed a bug where an open tower building UI element would close if you had gained enough resources to upgrade a different tower.
  • Fixed a bug where Blight monsters spawned by a Minion Portal did not ignore minions spawned a Summoning Tower.
  • Fixed a bug where Blighted Frozen Titans were not removed when failing a Blight Encounter.
  • Fixed a bug where, in Blighted Maps, Cassia did not warn you that monsters were close to the pump.
  • Fixed a bug where Blighted Maps would begin spawning monsters immediately after you had built your first tower if you had not yet completed the "Strange Growths" Blight quest.
  • Fixed a bug where the "Start Blight Encounter" button lingered for a short duration after being clicked.
  • Fixed a bug where transforming an Amulet into a Talisman removed its Anointed Notable passive.
  • Fixed a bug where casting Vaal BreachVaal BreachVaal, Spell
