Patchnotes via Steam Community

Hey everyone!

0.93.0 is finally ready! It largely consists of new mastery perks and passives intended to flesh out the tree with more options as well as support some previously unsupported stuff. The update also adds and changes some mechanics, QoL stuff, items, sets, and also some difficulty balancing and progression. It also includes an experimental performance fix which may help people seeing consistently low framerates. Please let me know if this fix made a difference for you!

Those of you interested in custom/fan translations will also be happy to know that all items, sets, and related text are now fully available for translations!

As always I have also fixed a ton of issues, however some remain on the list so you can expect a 0.93.1 going up next week with more fixes in it. In particular I am having difficulty reproducing and finding some co-op issues such as gamepad-related crashes and area corruption/resets, so if that happens to you please reach out to me with as much info as you can and we'll get it fixed ASAP!

Thanks again for all reports, suggestions, and comments over the past weeks! Extra thanks to those of you who sent me your dxdiag reports to help with the performance problems.
