6 May 2021Call to Arms Patch 4 (Balance Patch)Quarterstaffs

The hit-and-run playstyle of Quarterstaffs in Corrupted Dungeons has been toned down, while also trying to retain their playstyles in other content. This change alone will not entirely eliminate the strategy of resetting fights in Corrupted Dungeons, but should help balance the success of Quarterstaffs in this regard. Additional further changes will be made in a future patch to address the reset meta in Corrupted Dungeons.

Heavy Cleave's area was improved, making it easier to hit enemies and giving it a more unique feel. The hit delay has also been removed, making the ability strike much faster.
