Hotfix 1

  • Fixed a common client crash.

Hotfix 2

Hotfix 3

  • Fixed two instance crashes.
  • Fixed a client crash.

Hotfix 4

  • Temporarily disabled the Labyrinth crafting option that sacrifices a Gem to gain a percentage of the gem's total experience stored as your own experience. It will function differently when we re-enable this at a later date, due to some unfortunate outcomes that could occur currently.

Hotfix 6

  • Fixed the client logs missing "To" and "From" on whisper messages.
  • Fixed an instance crash.

Hotfix 7

  • Fixed a bug with the Sawblade Ethereal Knives Effect having more range than the base skill. This will still display this way until a later patch, but not do damage at the unintended range.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur with the Tumbling Orb Pets.

Hotfix 8

  • Significantly reduced the amount of damage dealt by Wisp Empowered monsters.
  • Reduced the Attack, Cast, and Movement Speeds of Vivid Wisp Empowered Monsters.
  • Decreased the amount of Wisps dropped from Empowered Non-Unique Monsters in the Viridian Wildwood by 30-40% depending on their rarity.
