Version history

Version Changes
3.8.0
  • No longer causes your minions to Regenerate Life, nor does it grant increased Minion Attack and Cast Speed per Skeleton you Own, increased Minion Duration per Raised Zombie, or increased Minion Damage per Raised Spectre.
  • It now causes minions to deal 60-80% increased Damage, and grants 1% chance to Block Attack Damage per Summoned Skeleton, 2% increased Attack and Cast Speed per Summoned Raging Spirit, 0.6% of Life Regenerated per second per Raised Zombie, and 30% increased Mana Regeneration Rate per Raised Spectre.
3.7.3
  • Fixed a bug where the Femurs of the Saints unique Primordial Staff was entirely black.
2.6.0
  • Base type implicit mod increased to 18% Chance to Block (up from 12%).
  • Base type critical strike chance decreased to 6.2% (down from 6.8%).
2.1.1d
  • The "Minion Life Regeneration per Raging Spirit you own" on Femurs of the Saints has been changed to grant a global percentage value of minion life regeneration. This change was made as the minion life regeneration per raging spirit was causing severe performance issues, especially under Lockstep mode.
  • Fixed a bug where increases to minion attack and cast speed per skeleton you own on Femurs of the Saints was not working. This can now also cause similar performance issues to what was experienced with the "Minion Life Regeneration per Raging Spirit you own" mod. We are aware of this issue and looking into a method of fixing it.
2.1.0
  • Introduced to the game.
