The Devs would like to get your feedback on the Hidden Ubers, and Uber Trist Primes. We want to make these fights more challenging and "dynamic" without making them drag out for no reason. Any suggestions or feedback is greatly appreciated. You can suggest to Fluffy Directly, or any of the other Devs and we will redirect it where it needs to go. Please be detailed, we don't want to see "Too Hard, Need Nerf"
--------Sonophilos----------- This is going to be Sono's last patch for RoT, he was more than a tremendous help getting myself up to speed with how everything works, how to properly integrate other people's work, and how to properly package up a patch for you guys. I wouldn't have been able to release this without his guidance. This dude did a lot of very important QoL fixes for this patch, including one big change that I feel everyone will approve of. With that being said, let's start with that one!
-Added level 90 armor Augments previously missing from vendor tables. Should result in all Augments in the database appearing in shops. -Moved level 90 armor Augments to the Shattered Conclave 'magic goods' vendor. Should result in enough space for all Augments to appear. -Adjusted Akara's, Drognan's, Ormus's, Jamella's, and Malah's vendor tables. Should display all Augments of their corresponding level. #Even with the sizes of the pools for Augments exactly matching the number of Augments at each level, shops might roll with fewer. ??? -Adjusted Akara's, Drognan's, Ormus's, Jamella's, and Malah's vendor tables. Should now include some random rare crafting materials. -Adjusted loot tables for Components and Crafting Materials to use vanilla GD paths. Should result in correct colors and pickup radius.
This means you will now have access to all augments every game, You will still need to make multiple games to get all the ones you want, but no more "farming" for Augments. This also means we now have access to more level 90 augments then previously.
-Increased +Health bonus on Druid Dire Wolf passive to +250HP. -Increased target radius on Paladin Holy Shock and its attached 'buff'. Should result in a maximum of a 20m radius, at rank 24. -Reduced damage values on Dream RWs' Holy Shock. Should result in damage equivalent to a rank 60 class skill + 'buff' now. -Increased target radius on Dream RWs' Holy Shock: Should result in a 20m radius at the item's skill rank. -Redirected impact fx on Sorceress Meteor. Should result in the same 'fire cracks' decal as Armageddon. Thanks @Owlheart! -Switched +Defense and +%Defense values on Aldur's Deception, as intended. Should result in a much less absurd +%Defense on this item. -Adjusted values on Endlesshail. Should result in stats much closer resembling the original D2 item, with a bonus boost to Pierce damage. -Adjusted values on Witchwild String. Should result in Amplify Damage proc applying 'on attack' and not 'when hit'. -Redirected Act III 'Slate half' wall to use updated bump texture. Should result in no 'swimming' effect on Travincal walls. -Redirected Mana potion item, HUD bitmaps and 'hotslot selection menu' to display RoT's blue Mana potion icons. Thanks @Owlheart! -Adjusted Akara's conversation to 'continue' from her introduction / the unique Sorc intro directly into the Den of Evil quest intro.
-Updated all maps with water surfaces, all water in the RoT world should be looking its best now -Applied 'jungle water' to the 'pools' in Travincal. Should result in this area no longer containing empty, navy-blue voids of not-water.
-Added a random Unique item reward for Betrayal of Harrogath, as intended. -Added a visible objective to 'Conquer Baal's Minions' at that point in Eve of Destruction, to match the notification displayed then. -Adjusted quest objectives for Lam Esen's Tome and The Guardian. Should result in clearer indications of what you're meant to do.
-Added 'Scales with Attack Speed' / 'Scales with Cast Speed' to Amazon spear skills. All relevant skills should now indicate this. -Fixed item tag for Witchwild String. Should result in the name displaying correctly as Witchwild String, and not as Endlesshail. -Fixed door tag for the Frozen Pit. Should result in the door displaying correctly as 'To the Frozen Pit', and not just 'Frozen Pit'. -Adjusted creature tag for 'Beastkin' race. Should result in affixes with 'bonus damage to Beastkin' displaying correctly as such. -Adjusted door and map tags for Kurast Sewers. Should result in a clearer distinction between the two 'Sewers' areas. -Changed GD 'Paladin's' prefix tag to 'Holy'. Should result in a clearer distinction between it and RoT's 'Paladin's' class prefix. -Adjusted UI tag for Player Level Requirement reduction affix, as on Gore Rider. Should display as '-5%' and not just '-5'. -Adjusted UI tag for player leave message in multiplayer. Should result in '(Name) has left the game. Diablo's minions grow weaker.' -Incremented versions in difficulty modes. Should be displayed as 'Normal/Normal+/Nightmare/Hell' '0.6.2.0' in all locations.
-Rebuilt vanilla red Healing potion icons and RoT's blue Mana potion icons. Should result in their display in all relevant locations.
-------Uncensored---------- -Fixed text issue in Cube "Runes / Gems / Components" being displayed wrong.
Skills: Blades of Ice and "Frost Nova" -Damage was increased 5x, to roughly the level of Phoenix Strike, yes BoI, CoT, and FoF is a viable option in this patch.
Claws of Thunder and "Nova" - Weapon damage increased slightly, more so after level 20 - Average damage was increased to be more in line with BoI
Fist of Fire and “Fire Nova” -Fist of Fire now has a "Fire Nova" celestial power. This was supposed to be there for I'm not sure how long, but it is fixed and now fits with the other Blade Skills. -Weapon Damage increased slightly. -Main and Burn Damage adjusted accordingly. Bringing it in line with the other two. -Increased the radius of the Fire Nova to 5 meters (from 2.6) -Fire Nova received a new FX, making it more of a Nova now.
Dragon Skills All Dragon skills received a "10% Chance of Total Damage Modified by 50%"
Dragon Flight -Increased Weapon Damage across the board, more so after level 20 -Added 50% Flat Damage modified to match with the other dragon skills
Dragon Claw -Believe it or not, Dragon Claw was the best performing Dragon skill behind Dragon Talon, which needed to be brought down to an appropriate level.
Dragon Talon -Reduced Total Damage Modified from scaling to flat 50% to match the other Dragon skills. -Reduced Weapon Damage significantly across the board. -Increased the number of targets hit by a few levels. i.e. You'll get to hit a higher number of targets at lower levels
I was working towards adding AR to these three skills, but it seems that is a limitation of them not being a "Charged" skill. I am going to continue to look into this.
Charged Bolt Sentry I started work on Traps. Haven’t gotten too far, but did do a couple changes to this so far. Increased the projectile speed of the bolts by 20% Increased the Damage by 2x Traps still feel weird, but it is something currently on my radar
Rabies This was a very underwhelming skill to play with. From damage to spread time. It felt clunky and not very fun to play or build around. I have done a little work to try and combat this. -Received a substantial damage buff. This should be noticed right from level 1 -Increased Contagion Radius from 5 to 6 meters -Decreased Contagion Interval from 1.5 down to .5 resulting in a noticeably faster spread
Bug Fix: - Fixed Cow Trio + Cow King sometimes not spawning - Fixed Mysterious Key drop chance from Goblins in Shattered Realm (based on difficulty: 33% Normal, 66% NM, 100% Hell) - Fixed normal maps for various walls in Act 3 - Fixed pathing in various areas
Maps: - River of Flame QoL overhaul no. 2 (added portals to the dead ends that teleport the player to middle of the map in order to minimize backtracking) + added lava geysers across the map for more dynamic feel - Extended Forgotten Island to support new uber boss fight mechanics
Monsters: - Buffed most of the uber bosses with new abilities to support more tactical gameplay (most of them now have debufs / CC that can lead to certain death if not played correctly)
Skills: - New Firebolt, Fireball, Meteor, Armageddon fx - Hurricane: increased cold / lightning dmg and removed physical dmg type and reduced sound volume by 50% - Added 'Requires a melee weapon' description to Druid Maul, Fire Claws, and Hunger skills
Text: - Minor improvements to NPC dialogs
Bug Fix: - Fixed Fara’s, Lysander’s NPC voice overs / dialogs and removed all NPC dialog pop ups (no need to “deplete” them to get into the main conversation option) - Fixed Arctic, Vidala’s and Mavina’s bow set part - Fixed Poison / Solar Creeper’s skill mana cost - Fixed obsidian blockades in River of Flame / Plains of Despair being impossible to open - Fixed Blade Shield by turning it into toggable offensive aoe buff with new fx - Fixed default attack description on skills that don’t qualify as default attack
Maps: - Removed path blockers in Jail Level 1 for easier navigation - Ancient Temple uber boss fight rework
Skills: - Increased Thunderstorm duration
Items: - “Deadly Strike” stat rework (now gives chance to base 15% total dmg multiplier across all original D2 items that are supposed to have DS) - Added % attack rating to Amethyst - Added Rune description with info about what items can be Runes applied to - Added missing bleeding resist to Dream / Chains of Honor RWs
