Gameplay Updates

Malignant Rings

Five new Unique Rings have been added to the game, one for each class. These are based on popular Malignant Powers from Season of the Malignant, and are immediately available in both Seasonal and Eternal realms. Obtain them by defeating the Echo of Varshan.

  • Ring of Red Furor (Barbarian Unique Ring)
    • After spending 100 Fury within 3 seconds, your next cast of Hammer of the Ancients, Upheaval, or Death Blow is a guaranteed Critical Strike and deals 10—30% (multiplicative damage) [x] bonus Critical Strike Damage.
  • Tal Rasha's Iridescent Loop (Sorcerer Unique Ring)
    • For each type of Elemental damage you deal, gain 10—15%[x] increased damage for 4 seconds.
    • Dealing Elemental damage refreshes all bonuses.
  • Airidah's Inexorable Will (Druid Unique Ring)
    • When casting an Ultimate Skill and again 5 seconds after, Pull in Distant enemies and deal 0.5-1.0 Physical damage to them.
    • This damage is increased by 1%[x] per 1 point of Willpower you have.
  • Writhing Band of Trickery (Rogue Unique Ring)
    • Casting a Subterfuge Skill leaves behind a Decoy Trap that continuously Taunts and lures enemies.
    • The Decoy Trap explodes after 3 seconds dealing 2.0-3.0 Shadow damage.
    • Can occur every 12 seconds.
  • Ring of the Sacrilegious Soul (Necromancer Unique Ring)
    • Automatically activate the following equipped Skills on Corpses around you:
      • Raise Skeleton every 1-2 seconds.
      • Corpse Explosion every 1-2 seconds.
      • Corpse Tendrils every 8-16 seconds.

Developer’s Note: Creating the Malignant Rings are a way for us to take popular Seasonal content that resonated with Players and reintroduce it in a way that can persist beyond the Season and into the Eternal realm.
