Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.20.1b released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

The patch introduces the Voidborn Reliquary KeyVoidborn Reliquary KeyAn heirloom of the champions of Wraeclast
Lies forgotten in an abandoned reliquary
Born of a starry void from which time cannot escape
, and contains a few Sanctum changes, alongside a number of other improvements and bug fixes.

Sanctum changes

  • The Death Toll Major Affliction no longer causes monsters to drop no Aureus Coins. Instead, it now causes you to Lose 250 Resolve after completing 8 rooms. This change does not affect existing Sanctum runs.
  • Herald of the Scourge's lightning waves skill now spawns more lightning bolts with each wave, though the lightning bolts are now smaller. The delay between each wave has been slightly increased, and the damage of the skill has been lowered by 20%.
  • Improved the visibility of the ground degen effect when fighting Lycia, Unholy Heretic.
  • Added an error message for attempting to change your Relics while you have an active Sanctum.

Improvements and other changes

  • Introduced the Voidborn Reliquary Key. The Voidborn Reliquary currently has 1231 options for foiled Unique items that it can yield. We are still working through the list of submissions from Voidborn Supporters to get the others in as soon as possible.
