Changes to existing Map Mods:

  • Old versions of the "of Stasis" mod prevent Life and Mana Regeneration. New versions that are rolled will also prevent Energy Shield regeneration.
  • "Of Smothering" now only affects recovery rate of Life and Energy Shield, no longer affecting mana recovery. (This includes existing versions of the mod)
  • The "Splitting" mod previously added multiple projectiles at yellow and red tier maps. They now only ever add two projectiles at all tiers.
  • "of Hemomancy", the mod that gave all characters Blood Magic, will no longer appear on maps.
  • "of Exposure" will now reduce maximum resistances by a lower amount. In yellow tier maps, it'll reduce maximum elemental resistance by -5% to -8% now. In red tier maps, it'll reduce maximum elemental resistance by -9% to -12%.
  • The "of Frenzy", "of Endurance" and "of Power" mods will no longer appear, as they could cause performance issues in areas with many monsters.
