Beasts of the Sanctuary: Hotfix 22.20.5

  • Beasts of the Sanctuary: Hotfix 22.20.5

    The Orokin Decoration costs/refunds mentioned in Hotfix 22.20.3 are close to being complete. The plan is to cut the Orokin Decoration Oxium costs in half and refund the excess back to the Clan Vault. We are also removing the Orokin Cell costs on the respective Orokin Decorations and refunding those to the Clan Vault as well. Already completed Decorations will not be destroyed when these changes go live. Stay tuned!

    Saryn Spores Changes:

    The bulbous pockets of corrosive popping goodness have been through the devs’ workshop and are here with some new changes! Saryn, our countess of corrosion, has received the following changes to her Spores.

    Curious about the details on how and why? Check out the Spores Revisited Dev Workshop!

    • Spores can be re-cast while active and will no longer detonate all active Spores.
      • Recasting on enemies will put new Spores on a target with a 20% decrease to its damage per second for 50% of the Energy cost.
    • Fixed inconsistent spreading ranges with Spores when killing an infected enemy by establishing a new base range of 16m across all spreading conditions.
    • Removed spread on enemies that die to a Spore’s tick damage.
    • Spores’ damage growth over time per Spore is now determined per enemy infected. And with it, a max limit of 10 infected enemies to maintain a max damage growth limit over time. To better explain this change and how it all breaks down, let’s compare:
      • Was: Damage growth is determined per Spore, so 1 damage per Spore every second. For example, let’s say there are 5 enemies. You cast Spores on one of the enemies in that group. 3 Spores are now active on that enemy. Damaging that enemy with Toxic Lash disperses a single Spore to the surrounding 4 enemies for a grand total of 7 Spores (4 enemies with a single Spore + the 3 original Spores on cast). This maintains a damage growth of 7 damage every second.
      • Now: Damage growth is determined per enemy infected, so 2 damage (can be modded with Ability Strength) per enemy infected by Spores every second up to a maximum of 10 enemies.* So, using that same example, 5 infected enemies would set the damage growth to 10 damage every second (Modded damage growth of x * # of enemies infected up to 10). Reaching 10 infected enemies would set the maximum damage growth at 20 every second.
        • *The number of infected enemies is uncapped! You can infect more than 10 enemies, but the damage growth is dependent on that max.
    • Damage per second will now “decay” (decrease over time) when no infected enemies remain.
      • The damage per second you’ve accumulated will first instantly drop by 20%, which will then commence the decay of the remaining damage by 10% per second (scales with Power Strength).
      • Decaying can be observed in the damage per second meter located above Saryn’s ability icons.
      • Nullifying effects (including Data-Conduits) increases the decay by 30% per second.

    • Melee attacks now freely pass through enemies in Range (i.e an enemy cannot block another enemy from being hit).
    • Increased the default speed of controller cursor and made it slower in Star Chart only.
    • You can now use ‘Enter’ to accept input prompts or (A) on controller instead of (X) (choosing Mod stacks, etc).
