Version history

Version Changes
  • Base Types are now generated with a random 0-15% (on average) higher base defence, as an inbuilt property. This means that all base types can be better than they currently are, and armour base types are not homogeneous any more.
    • Vaal Mask now has 37-43 energy shield (up from 36), and 207-239 evasion rating (up from 207). Existing items in the permanent leagues received the lowest roll, and un-corrupted not mirrored items can be re-rolled the defence roll by using a Sacred Orb.
  • Energy Shield as a defensive mechanic has undergone a review and, generally speaking, all sources of Energy Shield on items have been reduced by approximately 20%.
  • All local Energy Shield modifiers on items, as well as the base Energy Shield of items, have been reduced at higher levels. Very low-level items will see a slight increase or no change, scaling up to a 33% reduction at the highest tier of modifiers.
  • Because of Armour/Energy Shield and Evasion/Energy Shield equipment, we've had to apply this change to the local percentage modifiers on all other armour types as well. To compensate, all inherent values of base Armour and Evasion Rating on equipment are now greater at higher item levels.
  • (Read Version 3.0.0 § Item Balance for full text)
    • Vaal Mask now has 36 energy shield (down from 47) and 207 evasion rating (up from 180)
  • Helmets have been updated with new names and art. There are no longer any repeats of helmet art in the progression. Note: Existing helmets have had their name and art updated, but higher tier ones (that previously had repeated art) will show new art from the lower tier. This will be fixed in a future patch. To fix your helmet manually, put it on the cursor and type /fixmyhelmet
    • name changed from Pagan Mask to Vaal Mask.
