The "Definitive Edition" update is the final expansion to Caveblazers. This update extends and refines the original game with a plethora of new items & upgrades, as well as some quality of life changes, and a few final bug fixes.
Here's a breakdown of the major changes:
### 38 New Items & Blessings!
All of the new items & blessings have a large focus on synergy! For example (as above), combine the Bolt Lance with the Arrow Splitter, Rebound Emblem & Twofold Perk for ridiculous lightning-based ranged attacks.
### More Elemental Options
Get a hold of the Fire Affinity Blessing in an early level (increased fire damage from every fire kill) and combine it with a fire-based ranged or melee attack, and you could end up with massive fire damage by the end of the game.
Also, different damage types have different coloured damage numbers now.
### The Dull Ring...
It sounds pretty dull... and, well, it doesn't do anything on its own... but you can throw this ring on to an Altar with a potion of your choosing and the ring will absorb its effect.
### New Daily Traits
These new traits add a whole lot more variety to the Daily Challenge.
Here's a few favorites of mine:
Run the Gauntlet - the first part of each level is gauntlet of traps for you to struggle through... good luck!
Explosive Spikes - this one was suggested by discord member Polished. It's self explanatory... and causes chaos
Deck Builder - causes cards from Arena Mode to appear in the main game
Vegan Mode - ¯\(ツ)/¯
### Arena Card Rework
Many of the existing arena cards have been rebalanced, and 7 new cards have been added! There are now many more interesting and powerful card combinations to play with. Many of the new cards have an elemental focus (poison, bleeding, fire, etc) which I feel was an area that was a little neglected in previous versions.
### Create Your Own Hats!
This feature is exclusive to the PC version. You can draw your own hats, and have them appear in the game! To get started, head to your install directory
and you'll find a readme.txt file that explains how to draw them, and a template to help you get started.
Here's a few examples of what you can do:
