11Gameplay.png

  • Rage and Willpower gained with combo attacks are now given per attack instead of per hit. This will help with balancing resource generation, as attacks that could hit many enemies would generate resources too easily. The resource gained has been balanced accordingly.
  • The aggro system has been added: all kinds of attacks are taken into account but some skills generate more threat than others. The distance is also taken into account: if you're far from the creatures, you'll have less chance to attract its attention compared to someone who is close to the creature.
  • Rage generation on hit is now included in weapons attributes, and is not a character attribute anymore.
  • Nemesis system: when a character is killed by a creature in the Sarisel challenge, the creature who made the last blow becomes stronger and all his life is regenerated. Players cannot resurrect until the Nemesis has been slain.
  • Reworked how status ailments stack. The stacking timer is now reset each time a stack is applied, allowing for easier ailment building.
  • Changed the calculation and effect of item rarity bonus. Magic Find doesn't increase magic items drop rate anymore, only rare and legendary items.
  • Toughness attribute has been reviewed so it's no longer mandatory to survive, but characters using toughness will still be more resistant.
