Into the Void Patch - November 18th, 2021
  • Reap
    • Fixed an issue with the great axe reap incorrectly triggering a breakout dodge.
  • Gravity Well
    • Fixed an issue causing the Gravity Well’s slow effect to not always be removed if a player was able to get out of the effect area, resulting in the effect lasting up to 2s longer than intended.
    • Fixed issue where the Gravity Well tooltip wasn’t listing the melee damage caused by the ability if Gravity Well is used in close proximity to a target.
  • Whirlwind
    • Added Grit to Whirlwind.
    • Fortifying Whirlwind (Item Perk): Fixed an issue where this perk applied too many stacks of Fortify.
  • Passives
    • Heavy Pull: Fixed an issue where heavy attacks had incorrect hit boxes when this passive was equipped.
    • The Gravity passive no longer increases the duration of all pulls. We updated the ability to now apply Root for 0.25s to targets hit by a pull.
