Version history

Version Changes
3.14.0
  • The Corrupted Blood debuff has been updated. It now has a maximum stack size of 10 and is now consistently treated as being completely separate from Bleeding.
  • Various Bleeding-specific modifiers that may have previously applied to Corrupted Blood will no longer apply. Modifiers that affect both Bleeding and Corrupted Blood such as the of Staunchingof Staunching
    Suffix
    Immunity to Bleeding and Corrupted Blood during Flask effect
    Removes Bleeding and Corrupted Blood on use
    modifier on Flasks have had their descriptions updated to reflect this change.
  • Monsters that apply Corrupted Blood have been balanced around these changes accordingly. Corrupted Blood applied by Monster modifiers now have different values, and these values are now calculated based on the Monster's level rather than its main hand damage, so some effects which raised Monster attack damage no longer scale Corrupted Blood in unintuitive ways.
3.8.2
  • Corrupted Blood now plays audio each time it is applied to a player.
3.6.4
  • Fixed a bug where some "Bleeding cannot be inflicted on you" modifiers did not prevent Corrupting Blood from being inflicted on you.
1.0.0
  • Introduced to the game.
