  • Minions from Supported Skills now deal 25-39% more Damage (previously 25-49%).
  • Now has “Minions from Supported Skills have 25% less Maximum Life”.
2.0.0
  • Mana multiplier reduced to 130% from 150%. Damage now starts at 30% (down from 45%) but now acts multiplicatively with other sources. In general this should be a large boost to minion damage.
