Monthly Development Update - January 2023

Event_Cover_800x450_Update.jpg

Greetings, Ascended!

Last month we covered some specifics on the balancing pass that will accompany Chapter IV, including reducing XP requirements for late-game levelling, a showcase of some of the much-anticipated skill balancing, and more.

This month we are focusing entirely on the new Uniques that you will discover as you play through the upcoming Chapter IV and delve into the enhanced endgame. We are also introducing crowdin versions of existing Uniques, which will exist alongside their “standard” counterparts but offer a new twist. Our aim with all these new Unique items is not only to really push the potential of existing builds (fans of ailments should find a few items below to their liking), but also to provide nuclei for entirely new and unexpected builds and gameplay styles. The items showcased below are just a selection of what is on the way and only cover armour, but we wanted to get any budding build-building brains out there brainstorming.

As always, these are works in progress that are shown for demonstrative purposes and are not final or guaranteed. We are still testing, tweaking, and experimenting!
