Early Access Patch 002 - December 8th, 2018
This patch contains fixes and balance changes based on initial reports and observations since launch. The Shield of Chaos had a little too much bite, and we'd like to see Cast attacks used more often.

and by the waters of the Styx below,
which is the strongest oath for blessed gods,
I swear I will not plot more pain for you.
