Early Access Patch 021 - May 16, 2019

This small patch makes additional fine-tuning to Elysium as we switch over to working on June's Major Update, as well as bigger tasks on our Roadmap. Thank you very much for playing, and until the next one!!

General Gameplay[]

  • Increased how much health must be sacrificed to enter Chaos Gates

Weapons & Powers[]

  • Dash: canceling out of your Dash with an attack now cancels the brief remaining period of invincibility
  • Stygian Blade: fixed an issue where the Dash Attack could make you slide farther than expected

Boons & Blessings[]

  • Black Metal (Ares): reduced bonuses from higher rarity levels
  • Different League (Aphrodite): reduced base power level

Foes & Encounters[]

  • Exalted Greatshield: slightly reduced speed of ranged projectile; Elite variant appears slightly less often; now correctly blocks during idle pose with shield up
  • Exalted Strongbow: slightly reduced target acquisition range; slightly reduced duration of retreats
  • Nemean Chariot: increased move speed and rotation speed while in its attack mode
  • The Minotaur: slightly increased health (it is still less than before the last change); reduced the health total at which you defeat him in the mini-boss fight; reduced his health loss from this in the boss fight
  • Theseus: slightly increased health (it is still less than before the last change)
