Version history

Version Changes
  • Quality now provides 0-20% chance to Trigger this Skill when Hit (previously 0-10%).
  • Alternate quality gems, labyrinth helmet enchantments and unique threshold jewels are all systems that were trying to subtly modify the behaviour of skills. With this expansion these have been combined into a new system called Transfigured Gems that allows us to fully achieve the goal of these three systems, and then some.
  • Transfigured Gems are alternate versions of existing skill gems that have different functionality and balance than their regular versions. We have added many of these, with interesting variations that drastically change how existing skills play.
  • Anomalous, Divergent and Phantasmal Quality Gems have been removed from the game. Existing alternate Quality Gems now have the base Quality effect found on the respective Gem.
  • Many Skill Gems now display their radius in metres in the Gem description.
  • Now has alternative gem quality:[2]
Anomalous: 1% increased Cooldown Recovery Rate (per 1% quality)
Divergent: 1% increased Damage (per 1% quality)
Phantasmal: 2% chance to gain 1 Rage on Hit (per 1% quality)
  • Now deals 170% of base damage at gem level 1 (from 135%), up to 255% at gem level 20 (from 203%).
  • Now has 8 to 12 added Attack Physical Damage at gem level 1 (from 25 to 37), up to 56 to 85 at gem level 20 (from 169 to 254).
  • Now deals base damage equal to, and has an added damage effectiveness of, 135% at gem level 1 (from 75%), up to 203% at gem level 20 (from 113%).
  • Now adds 25 to 37 physical damage to attacks at gem level 1, up to 169 to 254 at gem level 20.
  • Can now affect up to 40 targets per attack (from 20).
  • Can no longer trigger while unarmed.
  • Vengeance has been added to the game.
