Version history

Version Changes
3.23.0
3.20.0
  • Quality on Divergent Summon Skeletons now provides "+0-1 seconds to Cooldown" and "Summons 0-4 Skeleton Warriors" (previously "Minions' Attacks have 0-10% chance to Maim Enemies on Hit").
3.19.0
  • The damage and life scaling values for minions have been adjusted. Generally speaking, minion life and damage is unchanged in the very early game, roughly 30% lower in mid acts, roughly 20% lower at level 20 of the minion skill, and roughly 10% lower at level 30 of the minion skill.
  • No longer has Minions gain 50% more Added Damage.
  • Skeletal Mages now deal approximately 5% less damage at gem level 1, scaling to approximately 25% less damage at gem level 20.
  • Now costs 5 mana at gem level 1 (previously 4), up to 16 at gem level 20 (previously 12).
3.14.0
  • Modifiers that are unveiled through Jun are now more powerful than before. Previously, when an item was unveiled, the veiled modifier added to the item would be equal to the highest tier modifier available on the Crafting Bench. Now, the modifier being unveiled no longer counts as a crafted modifier and will be stronger than any craftable veiled modifier.
3.12.0
  • Now has alternative quality.
