Heroes & Balance

Kerillian - Waystalker

  • Rejuvenating Locus - Fixed an issue where party members would receive no healing from Rejuvenating Locus if Kerillian was above half health. Party members will heal up to half health regardless of Kerillian’s current health value.

  • Vaul’s Quiver - Will now grant an amount of ammo based on your weapon’s maximum ammo. This means that a Swiftbow - with a larger ammo capacity, will receive more than a Hagbane Bow. Also fixed an issue where Vaul’s Quiver would cease to give ammo when Kerillian was above half health

Kerillian - Shade

  • Ereth Khial’s Herald - Fixed an incorrect tooltip showing 100% bonus to Murderous Prowess instead of 75%. The talent remains unchanged, this was simply a tooltip inconsistency

Markus Kruber - Foot Knight

  • Protective Presence - Fixed to properly apply buffs when modified by talents

Markus Kruber - Huntsman

  • Outdoorsman - Fixed to properly grant a stamina shield

Sienna Fuegonasus - Unchained

  • Blood Magic - To avoid self-detonation, Sienna will no longer convert received damage to overcharge while being incapacitated

Stability / Performance

  • Improved CPU optimizations for enemy and bot AI decision making
  • Fixed crash occurring when the Chaos Spawn tried to throw away a grabbed player after the rest of the team had wiped
  • Fixed rare crash happening when a Chaos Spawn was finished smashing a player into the ground, but that player left the game the same moment
  • Fixed Burblespue Halescourge who would cause a crash if a Globadier followed the players into the arena, and accidentally hurt the boss sorcerer. Bunglesnatch Humbledink then tried to retaliate against the poison cloud… Silly Blunderstunt.
  • Fixed a crash where a Skaven enemy tried to walk to a disabled interest point. (The interest point system handles interactions of enemies out of combat.)
  • Increased stability when losing contact with Steam
  • Fixed infrequent crashes that could occur on The Screaming Bell
  • Fixed crash that could occur when firing the cannon on Fort Brachsenbrücke
  • Fixed crash that could occur when a Warpfire Thrower hit a channeling sorcerer during the end event of Convocation of Decay
  • Fixed crash that could occur when a player leaves the game
  • Fixed crash when voting for a mission while a player vote kick is active
  • Decreased number of access violations during start up caused by XAudio2
  • Added an error message box when trying to launch DX12 binaries on any other OS than Windows 10
  • Game no longer uninstalls itself after a particularly rare crash :nurgle:

Known Issues

  • Backend issues with ISP UPC in Poland is still unresolved. We are working on this continually
  • The host can crash during the Skarrik Spinemanglr boss fight if a player joins/leaves the game
  • Skittergate bosses are currently in an unstable state
  • Localisation work is still ongoing, and we apologise for that. We’ll continue to add and improve as we patch
  • A crash occurs when switching ranged weapons in the HUB (with very specific timing) while playing as Kerillian Waystalker with the “Vaul’s Quiver” talent which grants ammo over time with her passive ability. (It was changed in patch 1.0.3 so that the passive triggers even at full hp (it used to trigger only below 50% hp), so it triggers from time to time in the Keep, which can cause the crash if players are switching ranged weapons often (or have bad timing) while having that Waystalker talent equipped.

Some players who participated in the open beta test have reported issues where the Skittergate level is unavailable. Due to a change in the level unlock system, those players will have to re-play Act 3 in order to unlock Skittergate.
