Version history

Version Changes
3.17.0
  • (Undocumented in patch notes) This card's drop level requirement was changed.
  • Drop weightings and minimum area levels for the vast majority of cards have not been changed, but drop weightings for a very small number of cards have been reduced in cases where the number of maps they're available from has greatly increased.
  • A longstanding bug in the code determining area level restrictions for some divination card drops has been fixed. This means that cards intended to have a high area level requirement (mostly ones that grant item level 100 items) will no longer fluctuate wildly in availability from league to league.
2.6.0
  • Now drops in map areas.
