Related Patch Notes

Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
13 October 2021Call to Arms Patch 11Enfeeble Blades was a very underrepresented ability. To give it a more useful role, it has been reworked into a ground target area which purges each enemy hit. Since the Locus is now cleanse-only, Lifecurse Staff can take over the role of AoE purging in large-scale fights.
  • Enfeeble Blades (Lifecurse Staff):
    • Can now be cast at the ground and no longer requires an ally target (Blades remain on the ground area)
    • Is now a channeled ability, and the Blade area lasts for the channel duration
    • The area now also continues purging enemy buffs on every hit (doesn't purge enemy HoT)
    • Cast Range: 11m → 15m
    • Cast Time: 1s → 0.6s
    • Cast and channel are now uninterruptible
    • Area Radius: 6m → 5m
    • Area Duration: 5s → 4s
    • Damage Debuff per Stack: 5% → 4%
    • Debuff Max Stacks: 10 → 5
    • Cooldown now scales with Item Power:
      • 900 Item Power: 50s
      • 1700 Item Power: 34s

  • Item details
12 August 2020Rise of Avalon Update and Hotfix 1, 2Avalonian Weapons are an entirely new line of Artifact Weapons and offhands, each with unique new abilities. They can be crafted with new Avalonian Artifacts, which can be obtained directly or forged from Avalonian Shards, which are dropped in Elite Dungeons and along the Roads of Avalon.
6 December 2017Kay UpdateCursed Staffs:
  • Grudge:
    • Grudge no longer applies Vile Curses, but now has its own separate DoT
    • The new Grudge DoT has its first tick after 1s
    • The new DoT can be stacked up to 6 times
    • Duration: 6s -> 10s
    • Cooldown: 15s -> 20s
    • Energy cost: 4 -> 7
  • Area of Decay
    • Now removes 1 healing stack per tick (so Nature Rejuvenation stacks get reduced by one with each tick, for example).
