Version history

Version Changes
  • Now adds 10 to 15 physical damage to attacks at gem level 1, up to 56 to 85 at gem level 20.
  • Now has an attack speed multiplier of 400% (previously had 100% more attack speed).
  • Modifiers to melee attack range now also apply to this skill's area radius.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when Vaal Cyclone was used on the Ossecati, Boneshaper unique boss.
  • Vaal Skill soul counts were initially balanced for Merciless difficulty, where there are more monsters. We want them to be easier to use in Normal and Cruel difficulty. We have halved the number of souls required for each skill. In Cruel difficulty, skills require 50% more souls to uses. In Merciless difficulty, they require 100% more (which is the same as before the patch).
  • Introduced to the game.
