Hello Vampires.

We aim to patch V Rising today at 8:00 UTC / 10:00 CEST.

This hotfix brings the following fixes and updates:

  • Merged the current “Accessibility” Options Menu tab settings into the “Graphics/Controller” setting tabs to reduce the total number of tabs, making it easier to navigate the Options menu.
  • The Spellbook menu ability bar can now be navigated with the left analog stick when replacing abilities using a gamepad.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where replacing a window castle wall with a normal castle wall would cause attached objects such as curtains, castle window growth, or spider webs to yield their dismantle cost twice.
  • Fixed a server crash that could occur when attempting to dismantle floors in very big castles (castles beyond standard limitation settings).
  • The camera should now default to the lowest pitch setting when playing with a gamepad.
  • Fixed a bug where ability animations would not show correctly when having high attack speed.

Balance Changes
General balance tweaks to the offensive power of defensive spells and boosts to select offensive projectile and area spells. In general, physical damage, along with defensive spells, have proved to be too strong in comparison to offensive spell damage builds. These changes aim to even out the playing field slightly.

Additionally, some changes aim to reduce the power of stacking movement speed and movement-enhancing spells.

Whip Primary Attack

  • Damage changed to have the whip Primary Attack deal more damage on the tip and less on the line. Line damage changed from 50/50/55% to 45/45/50%, and tip damage changed from 20% to 25%.

  • Parry damage absorption was reduced from 50% to 40%.
