featured image shards hotfixes

On July 27th, the Shards of Domination set bonuses were nerfed for about an hour, and were reverted shortly after. Those changes were supposed to go live with the weekly reset instead, and are now completely scrapped after the community’s negative reaction. The Necrotic Wake dungeon has seen some changes this week, with the placement of the second Torment Affix lieutenant being adjusted, and the effects of Discharged Anima no longer getting cancelled by player immunity effects. Executioner Varruth’s Carnage ability now can be dodged and parried, and Oros Coldheart’s Biting Cold is now affected by Spell Reflection.

Items and Rewards

  • Shards of Domination
    • Earlier this week, a change to the power of Shards of Domination set bonuses (e.g. Chaos Bane) was briefly applied to the live game. We are no longer planning to proceed with that change at all. We may make further adjustments in the coming days, but we will not reduce the power of Shards now that many players have earned and upgraded them.
