New World Spear Patch Note Changelog

Below is a running list of changes for each patch for the Spear in New World. The most recent patch is listed first and then in descending order by date.

Winter Convergence Patch - December 16, 2021
  • Increased hit-shape size and attack homing on all thrust attacks.
  • Skewer: Increased lunge distance by 50%.
  • Perforate: Increased rotation speed during the ability.
  • Strong Conditioning:
    • Fixed an issue where the Strong Conditioning buff could be canceled by using a Honing Stone.
    • Strong Conditioning no longer shows a text pop-up when triggered.

Into the Void Patch - November 18th, 2021
  • Adjusted the distance the player moved towards the target when doing a heavy attack. The heavy attack was pulling the user too close previously, resulting in the Deadly Reach passive not being able to trigger consistently.
  • Sweep
    • Coup de Grace:
      • Increased damage scaling from 125% to 150%.
      • This attack is now flagged as Heavy, allowing it to trigger Heavy-related passives.
  • Skewer
    • Increased bleed damage from 10% to 20%
  • Perforate
    • Increased damage scaling from 70% to 80%
    • Fixed a bug which caused the passive Continuous Motion to not reduce the cooldown of Perforate.
  • Cyclone
    • Increased damage scaling from 110% to 130%
  • Vault Kick
    • Fixed an issue where Vault Kick’s cooldown began 1 frame before the hitbox would appear. This resulted in the ability going on cooldown if the attack was interrupted early, even if it didn’t hit.
