Will future batches of accepted submissions for the Voidborn Reliquary be implemented with patches or just live deployed to the pool automatically via a server update?

They don't require a restart patch but we will do them in batches restartlessly. Not sure of the cadence yet, perhaps weekly.

The ordering of Eve of Invasion is annoying me because the chances are not in descending order. Can you fix it?

The ordering of mods for Eve of Invasion will be fixed for launch.

Link to this question




Why is Smite's text different, and what has changed about the skill hitting enemies?

There is no functional change to Smite's behaviour. The text on Smite primarily changed because the old wording only discussed hitting a target with both the lightning and melee, but did not explain that additional lightning bolts (already possible with an enchantment, and more common now from Vaal Smite's Aura bonus) also couldn't damage the same target twice (Note: Vaal Smite itself does not have this restriction). The new wording is also shorter, which is important because the Vaal Smite gem popup is quite big.

Smite currently has a case where an enemy can be hit by both the melee damage from an additional strike target (such as from Ancestral Call), and the damage of the lightning bolt which is associated with your primary strike. This goes against what the new wording of Smite says, but it also goes against the old wording, so the wording is the same amount of inaccurate. This behaviour is unintended and caused by a subtle timing issue relating to Smite's animations, but is not changed in 3.20.0 and we do not currently have specific plans to change it.

When can we see the 20/20 gems post and new Atlas tree?

The 20/20 gems post can be found here. Due to time constraints and some technical limitations, we won't be able to share a preview of the Atlas tree before launch.

Link to this question




Why do Combustion and Bonechill Support not work properly when a stronger Ignite/Chill are applied?

We've investigated this internally and have found that this behaviour was due to an optimisation that was introduced in 3.15. It can affect anything that adds an effect to things while your ailment is on them (e.g. Combustion, Bonechill, Taryn's Shiver, etc.). We've found that it only affects elemental ailments and that the order ailments are inflicted is not important but the remaining duration can be.

The optimisation we made is that elemental ailments are discarded if they can never become the active one affecting the enemy. An ailment is only discarded this way if there is at least one stronger ailment suppressing it which also has equal or longer duration (so the weaker one can never be "promoted" to active by outlasting the stronger one). Ailments usually having matching durations is why players are reaching conclusions about order mattering - the most recent ailment will usually have the most remaining duration, and thus not be discarded.

We plan to fix this behaviour so ailments with these kinds of extra effects tied to them are not discarded this way. The fix for this won't make it in time for release but we'll aim to get it out in a patch following it.Link to this question




Updates to ailment immunity in the character sheet

Added the following note to the User Interface Changes section of the patch notes:

Stats that grant immunity to an ailment or prevent you from being inflicted with an ailment are no longer displayed as 100% chance to avoid that ailment in the character sheet. They instead display that you are immune to or cannot be affected by the relevant ailment respectively.

Why haven't you nerfed Seismic Trap?

We have nerfed Seismic Trap several times this year. We understand that competitive players would like Seismic Trap to be nerfed yet again so they don't feel obligated to play with it for ladder pushing. Outside of this context, it doesn't appear to be used by an extremely large number of people (it's top twenty, but not meta-defining). We will investigate whether we can change it for situations that are relevant to racing but we can't promise anything yet.

Link to this question




When you reroll an Awakened Gem from one type to another with the new Beastcrafting recipe, will it keep its experience level?

When you roll an Awakened Gem to another type, it will keep its level and experience but different gems have different experience values per level so they may not be exactly the same. But essentially, if you start with an Awakened Gem at Level 2 with 50% experience and roll it to another one, it will be Level 2 with 50% experience.

Two new Masteries have taken their place. The first provides “You take 40% reduced Extra Damage from Critical Strikes by Cursed Enemies”, while the second provides “Recover 1% of Life when you Curse a Non-Cursed enemy” and “Recover 1% of Mana when you Curse a Non-Cursed enemy.” Do these recovery stats work with blasphemied curses as well?

Recovery stats don't work with Blasphemy.

The Tribal Fury Notable Passive Skill no longer has “Strike Skills target 1 additional nearby Enemy”. It now has “Melee Strike Skills deal Splash Damage to surrounding targets”. Does that apply to the melee of Dominating Blow minions?

No

Link to this question




With Survival Secrets jewel now removed, will its effects “Flasks applied to you have 20% reduced Effect” and/or “Flasks gain 3 Charges every 3 seconds while they are inactive” be available anywhere else in-game?

No, but we'll look into ways to bring this back in the future in some form.

Link to this question




Do you have any plans to restore the effects of Replica Conquerors Efficiency, Replica Hotheaded and Lord of Steel?

No, we don't see these effects as necessary to retain. However, we do understand that some players are very interested in them so we will consider them when developing future content though.

Link to this question




Can you confirm how many modifiers rare monsters will have?

Link to this question




Why won't challenges be enabled in Ruthless?

Because 3.20 is a beta of Ruthless, and we're still building the fundamentals of the mode, we needed to have developed challenges well in advance, which was difficult to do with the fundamentals of the mode still being worked on. We currently intend on having challenges available from 3.21 onwards.

Are we allowed to know if Atziri's Disfavour was moved back to Uber Atziri?
