Version history

Version Changes
3.18.0
  • Archnemesis modifiers have been rebalanced and added to the core game. Existing Magic and Rare monster modifiers have been replaced with Archnemesis modifiers.
  • Bloodlines and Nemesis have been removed from the core game. Some of their modifiers have been incorporated into the new monster modifier system:
    • The Snow Bolt and Inferno Bolt Nemesis modifiers have been incorporated into the Frost Strider and Flame Strider Archnemesis modifiers.
    • The Storm Herald and Final Gasp Nemesis modifiers can now be found as Archnemesis modifiers on Rare Monsters.
3.17.0
  • (Not in patch note) Berserker, Soul Conduit and Soul Eater have been reworked and ported as new Archnemesis monster modifier of the Archnemesis league. Other Archnemesis modifiers have also incorporated some elements of the nemesis modifiers, such as Magma Barrier mod periodically spawns Volatile Flameblood, but not a on death effect; Assassin archnemesis modifier grants the monster Shroud Walker; Corrupter archnemesis modifier inflict Corrupted Blood status icon.pngCorrupted Blood.
3.14.0
  • The "Allies Cannot Die" aura has been removed. To replace this, a new "Benevolent Guardian" Nemesis modifier has been added which causes the Monster with this modifier to apply an Immunity buff to nearby allies for a short duration. If the original Monster is slain, affected allies lose the Immunity buff. Other Monsters that have this Nemesis modifier cannot be given the Immunity buff.
3.1.0
  • Monster mods "Reflects Physical Damage" and "Reflects Elemental Damage" have been reworked. They now appear as Nemesis mods. Attacking a monster with Physical or Elemental Reflect now triggers a mortar spell targeted at your location. This spell has a cooldown. Both versions of Reflect now only appear on Nemesis rare monsters.
  • (Not in patch note) They are known as Physical Thorns and Elemental Thorns mods
3.0.0
  • The Volatile Flameblood, Volatile Iceblood and Volatile Stormblood Nemesis mods have been disabled and replaced by Volatile Core. Volatile Core monsters create an entity on death which pursues players until it explodes.
  • (wiki editor note: Volatile Flameblood was not disabled; Volatile Core is not added to the game so that Volatile Flameblood is the only active Volatile Blood variant)
1.0.0
  • Introduced to the game.
