Hello Crew!

We're making some balance adjustments to the early game based both on some of the feedback we've received and our own observations.
We're also squashing a couple of bugs that've already been found since release.

  • Fixed bug where Apprentice Wildlander Hellion had Veteran-level SPD
  • Fixed bug where Wildlander Hellion's "Wreck" didn't have a negative crit modifier
  • Fixed bug where Wildlander Bombard's "Ballistic Thunder" didn't have a negative crit modifier
  • Fixed bug where Cactonid Aspiciac's "Chilling Stare" did twice as much Stress Dmg as intended
  • Fixed bug where Bounty Hunter's "Flashbomb" debuffs lasted 4tns instead of 3tns
  • Removed some more Triple Swarmer mashes from the Caverns
  • Fixed some more Typos
