28 July 2021Call to Arms Patch 9Armors

Energy Drain (Royal Armor) no longer steals enemy energy. While energy management should be an important part of the game, fights with energy-draining comps are not very fun for the receiving end. Energy Drain will thus now be a purely supportive ability that generates Energy for the user and allies, and be renamed Energy Source.

  • Energy Drain (Royal Armor):
    • Reworked the ability, it is now called Energy Source and no longer reduces enemy energy
31 May 2021Call to Arms Patch 5/6 & Hotfix 6.1Armors

All Armors in the game (cloth, leather, plate, and gathering gear) now have a Health Regeneration Bonus of 150% regardless of armor type:

  • Scholar Robe, Royal Robe, Druid Robe: 80% → 150%
  • Cleric Robe, Fiend Robe: 70% → 150%
  • Mage Robe, Cultist Robe, Robe of Purity: 60% → 150%

  • Soldier Armor, Royal Armor, Graveguard Armor : 200% → 150%
  • Knight Armor, Demon Armor: 210% → 150%
  • Guardian Armor, Judicator Armor, Armor of Valor: 220% → 150%
6 May 2021Call to Arms Patch 4 (Balance Patch)Armors

Self Ignition's spell logic was reworked to improve server performance, which also limited the number of enemies it could hit. As a result, it now deals damage even when the caster is shielded or invulnerable. The general damage was thus reduced. Additionally, to make it more effective in Item Power-dependent settings, it now uses a percent of the enemy’s max health to determine damage instead of a flat value.

Force Shield was very strong for tanks in 5v5, which also gave frontlines too much survivability. The resistances from the area were thus slightly reduced.

Life Steal Aura is another Quality of Life change to make the ability feel more fluid.
