Into the Void Patch - November 18th, 2021
  • Reduced base healing by 20% across the board to account for the increase in healing from equip load
  • Targeting Adjustments

    • Added out of range targeted healing functionality:
      • Group UI will change color when the target is out of range.
      • If the target moves out of range, the spell will cancel instead of casting targeting yourself.
      • Trying to cast a targeted heal on an out of range target will display a “target is out of range” notification.
    • Fixed an issue where targeted heals activated by using the ability key would not perform a direct heal on the intended target.
  • Sacred Ground
    • Fixed an issue where the Life Staff Sacred Ground VFX and tooltip stated it lasted longer than the actual duration.
    • Reduced the effectiveness of the Sacred Ground fortify perk from 3% - 15% to 3% - 10%.
    • Reduced Holy Ground stamina and mana regeneration from 100% to 50%.
    • Fixed an issue that allowed the healing from this skill to be stacked from multiple sources if they were using different ability upgrades.
  • Splash of Light
