Patch notes

These are the official patch notes for version 3.8.1d released by Grinding Gear Games.[1]

  • Progress towards the "Spend Blight Resources" challenge is now granted to all players in the area when any player builds or upgrades a Tower.

  • Fixed a bug where you would be unable to build Towers if you had right-clicked on a Tower while holding left-click on it as well.
  • Fixed a bug where monsters that spawned from Cold, Lightning and Physical lanes had the wrong description with regards to what type of Towers they were resistant to. This was a description issue only.
  • Fixed a bug where Blight Towers could sometimes persist after an encounter ends if that Tower was being built or upgraded when the encounter ended.
  • Fixed a bug where the additional meteors created by the "Your Meteor Towers drop an additional Meteor" ring enchantment modifier were too tightly clumped together, making it difficult to discern the additional meteors.
  • Fixed a bug where the "Your Flamethrower Towers deal full damage to Fire Enemies" and "Your Shock Nova Towers deal full damage to Lightning Enemies" ring enchantment modifiers did not work.
  • Fixed a bug where Anointed Notables did not count towards the Inspired LearningInspired Learning

  • Added audio that plays when flasks are equipped or placed in your inventory or stash.
