Default B26 Hotfix 1 (v0.3.4.6)

b26 Hotfix 1 (v0.3.4.6)

[Tech]
  • Fixed a crash which could occur when some monsters with pets were killed.

[Game]
  • Level Limit increased to 45 or 50 for most areas in Act3.
  • Fixed an issue with pathing on Bridge to Gryver's Sawmill
  • Adjusted Thall'Nosh attributes
  • Fixed another issue with the Seamtress quest dialogue preventing its completion
  • Adjusted the spawn rate of Revenants for the Order of Death's Vigil, particularly Frost Revenants

[Class & Skills]
Demolitionist
  • Stun Jacks and Full Spread lighting and electrocute damage swapped. This was intended for B26 but only Stun Jacks was changed, leaving both the base skill and modifier with lightning damage. This change should help to balance the skill and promote investment in both the base and modifier for quickjack builds, especially now that the projectiles are working properly.

Another sleepless night I see, Rhis. Thanks for your hard work

Edit: The Amalgamation isn't scaling. He is still level 44.

I really hope this means there will be less of them. Death's vigil is pretty tough with all the life drain, slowing, freezing, and summoning.

Oh, and speaking of level scaling, are there any places where Cronley's Gang will scale up to level 40+? The ones in Croney's hideout stop at ~35 and that isn't enough to give reputation at level 50.

With the Shaman mastery coming and all the new items to accommodate it, lightning damage is now much more easy to acquire; it may have been nerfed per se, but soon it will be more viable than ever (especially for Demo + Sham builds that side with Kymon's Chosen).

Cutting the base damage in half isn't going to make it more viable.

That particular fix did not make hotfix 1, oops; but even if it did, it impacts monsters that spawn for Bounties Only, so not bosses that are always there.

The max level in Cronley's hideout will be increased for Early Access so you can keep earning reputation from Outlaws.

Every enemy in that area is level 50-55 where before the hotfix they were at their level 40 scale and every other boss scales as well such as the hive queen and gollus. The amalgamation is literally the lowest level enemy in the entire chapter 2 area.

Ah right...you made me remember that the Amalgmation isn't spawned by standard means. Its level will be updated in Hotfix 2.

Why not make all the monster levels in the game scale with the character? Would that cause any balance issues?
