|Version 20.000.1||8 June 2022||Into the Fray Update||Even after its most recent buff, Demonfang still struggled to compete with other weapons. To make it more effective as an assassin weapon, its Damage over Time effects have been removed, and instead its damage now applies instantly. The self-Bleed is now also only triggered on the third activation, which increases the incentive to attempt 1-2 hits and allows the caster to attempt two activations even when low on health. Various adjustments have also been made to make aiming and hitting opponents more reliable.
|Version 19.080.1||25 April 2022||Lands Awakened Patch 8||Blood Ritual now has more damage frontloaded at the moment of each hit, making casting it in quick succession more viable. The ability still has a DoT that is overwritten by each hit, meaning there is still a reason to space the three activations apart for maximum damage. Utilizing Blood Ritual primarily for burst damage should still do a significant amount of damage. The maximum damage output of the ability remains unchanged.
|Version 19.010.1||13 December 2021||Lands Awakened Patch 1||To make Blood Ritual less dependent on blocking the self damage with an additional defensive like Cleric Robe, its self-damage has been reduced.
