Related Patch Notes

Patch LinkDatePatch NamePatch Notes
5 October 2022Into the Fray Patch 7Mystic Rocks is a strong heal denial with the downside that the caster themself does not receive healing. However, since pre-applied HoTs could circumvent this downside to a degree, activating the ability will now remove all HoTs on the caster. Quarterstaff is currently underused, so its range and cast time have been improved to hit enemies more reliably and provide more utility.
  • Vault Leap (Regular Quarterstaff):
    • Cast Range: 13m → 15m
    • Cast Time: 0.7s → 0.6s
  • Mystic Rocks (Staff of Balance):
    • Activating the ability now removes all HoTs on the caster
31 May 2021Call to Arms Patch 5/6 & Hotfix 6.1Quarterstaffs
  • Soul Shaker (Grailseeker):
    • The Root Duration can now be shorter than the area duration
    • Entering the area now applies a 3.5 second root which scales with Item Power and Duration Modifiers, but is reduced by CC Resistance and Diminishing Returns
    • The root effect is still removed when the area ends or the player leaves the area
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.
