SotV Deployment Timeline and Updated Patch Notes

We're deploying Sacrifice of the Vaal tomorrow! The countdown on the site and game client indicates the time that the game servers will be up (which is 15 hours from the time of this post). We're taking the game servers down one hour beforehand. The website will be down for about 15 minutes at the start of that downtime, and available with the new passive tree for the 45 minutes after that. Players will also be able to patch during that hour. We have also made some additional changes to the update that are listed after the cut.

Added the following patch notes:
  • Increased the damage of Fireball at low and high levels.
  • Increased the damage of the following skills at low levels: Spark, Cold Snap, Ice Spear and to a lesser extent, Freezing Pulse and Storm Call.
  • Monster Unrighteous Fire now deals a controlled value of fire damage, rather than being based on maximum life.
  • Improvements have been made to early cast speed passives in the Witch and Shadow sections and to early attack speed and life passives in the Shadow section. We're investigating more detailed revamps of the caster classes (Witch, Templar and Shadow) in the future.
  • Adjusted the PVP scaling of Righteous Fire and Searing Bond. These have only been conservatively adjusted. A more thorough adjustment to PVP scaling of skills will be ongoing throughout 1.1.x.
