Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
13 October 2021Call to Arms Patch 11The Locus is a very strong support weapon in ZvZs. Previously it served a dual role when the frontline engaged or was engaged by removing the enemy’s buffs and cleansing all allies, thereby acting as both offensive and defensive support. To encourage more considered decisions in these situations, the Purge effect of the Void has been removed. This opens up the ZvZ meta to other support weapons, with less focus on this single item. Additionally, the max target count for Motivating Cleanse was increased to make it more useful in large-scale fights.
  • Motivating Cleanse (all Arcane Staffs):
    • Max affected targets: 5 → 10
  • Void (Malevolent Locus):
    • No longer purges enemies
28 July 2021Call to Arms Patch 9Added four new icons to better represent the corresponding abilities:
