Hello Everyone,

This update (Release 1.1.0) features a ton of new items and Inscriptions that add new strategic elements and should kick up the action another notch.

We’ve added a total of 38 new items, some of which have very unique properties and may only activate after certain enemies have been defeated. Choosing which items to pick up during your run will require even more strategy than ever.

There is also a new NPC called the “Grave Robber” who will randomly show up in the Black Market and sell new items in exchange for Dark Quartz.

Not only that, but we’ve also implemented 7 new Inscriptions that will create even more crazy synergies depending on the type of damage being dealt and the number of enemies in the area. For example, if there are a bunch of enemies nearby one of the Inscriptions may create a shockwave effect. So go ahead and see what wild combinations of skulls, items and Inscriptions you can create!

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed bug where the Chapter 4 Mage Adventurer would sometimes freeze after being hit with Genie’s Genie Swordsmanship skill attack.
  • Fixed problem where the increase in crit chance and max number of stacks for the Elder Werewolf’s Predation skill attack was implemented improperly
  • Fixed problem where some controllers weren’t registering properly at the Title Screen
Text Issues
  • Fixed the flavor text for the Archdemon Quintessence (English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, French)
  • Fixed the explanation for the stacks related to the Elder Werewolf’s Predation skill (Every Language)
  • Fixed the explanation of Dark Paladin’s passive ability (English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, French)
  • Fixed the explanation for each Living Armor’s passive ability (English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, French)
  • Fixed the explanation for the Whirlwind skill for each Predator (English, Japanese, Chinese Simplified and Traditional, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, French)
  • Fixed the explanation of each Samurai’s swap ability and skills (German)
  • Fixed the explanation of Warlord’s passive ability (English, Japanese, Chinese Simplified and Traditional, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, French)

Changes

New NPC in the Black Market: Grave Robber

The Grave Robber is the only human in the Black Market and he sometimes steals hidden treasures in Carleon.
He possesses items that you can’t get normally during your run and can only be purchased with Dark Quartz. They will drop like all other items after being bought though.

These “Boss Items” will only appear in the chests after defeating the bosses.
