Major Content

ROR2MajorContent.png

  • Added System: Game Ending
    • The game now includes a proper ending, with credits and cutscene.
  • Added System: Server Browser
    • Quickplay served an important function at launch - but the QP featureset is barebones. Not only that, but the game has evolved past needing to just find a match - you need to find the right match. We think a built-in Server Browser (and hosting) will still allow you to connect and find other players easily while also providing a lot of the features and choices you want to make before connecting to a game.
  • Added System: Intro Cutscene
    • The game now includes an intro cutscene!

Gameplay Changes

ROR2GameplayChanges.png

  • General
    • Status Bleeding.png BleedsStatus Bleeding.pngBleed (Debuff)
      Damage over time.Deals 240% damage over time [3 x proc coefficient] (20% per tick, 4 ticks per second).
      (stackable)
      now refresh all existing bleed durations on that target. This affects both enemies and players, and is a huge change for how bleeds will work.
    • Increase difficulty rate over time for all difficulties by +10%.
      Developer Notes: In this update, we’ve buffed a ton of items - and also given players way more agency over the way a run progresses. Our goal is for players to be more engaged with the game - what we don’t want is for the game to be suddenly much easier. This is a bit of a sanity check, and shouldn’t dramatically change the difficulty.
    • Slightly reworked OSP. The goal is to fix inconsistencies and make it actually protect you from one-shots - while also fixing some abuse cases with curse.
      • The threshold for OSP is now displayed on the healthbar with a faint graphic.
      • Now has a lingering 0.1s duration when activated.
      • 🌧 Now is subtracted via Curse (Shaped Glass.png Shaped GlassBgLunar.pngShaped Glass.pngShaped Glass
        Double your damage... BUT halve your health.

        Increase base damage by 100% (+100% per stack). Reduce maximum health by 50% (+50% per stack).
        , GlassArtifact of Glass, etc), i.e a curse of 10% will remove OSP entirely.
      • 🌧 Update OSP logic so it still triggers if you receive multiple sources of damage in the same frame that go past OSP values, i.e Status AffixPoison.png MalachiteStatus AffixPoison.pngMalachite (Affix Buff)
        Gain the power of a Malachite Elite.Shoot occassional urchins and apply healing disabled on hit.
        Lesser Wisp.png Lesser WispsLesser Wisp.pngLesser Wisp - Normal
        HP: 35 (+10 per level)
        Damage: 3.5 (+0.7 per level)
        Class: Ranged
        Speed: 6 m/s
        Armor: 0
  • Elites
    • Status AffixRed.png BlazingStatus AffixRed.pngBlazing (Affix Buff)
      Gain the power of a Blazing Elite.Leave a fire trail that hurts enemies, and apply a 50% total damage burn on hit.
      , Status AffixBlue.png OverloadingStatus AffixBlue.pngOverloading (Affix Buff)
      Gain the power of an Overloading Elite.Attacks explode after a delay. 50% of health is replaced by shield.
      , Status AffixWhite.png GlacialStatus AffixWhite.pngGlacial (Affix Buff)
      Gain the power of a Glacial Elite.Leave an ice explosion on death, and apply an 80% slow on hit.
      • 🌧Health Bonus: 470% ⇒ 400%
    • Status AffixPoison.png MalachiteStatus AffixPoison.pngMalachite (Affix Buff)
      Gain the power of a Malachite Elite.Shoot occassional urchins and apply healing disabled on hit.
      , Status AffixHaunted.png CelestineStatus AffixHaunted.pngCelestine (Affix Buff)
      Gain the power of a Celestine Elite.Cloak nearby allies, and apply an 80% slow on hit.
      • 🌧Health Bonus: 2350% ⇒ 1800%
        Developer Notes: We’ve had a lot of feedback that elite health has always felt a bit bloated - and that subsequently, it makes the Old Guillotine feel required. Our intent is to make characters less reliant on the Old Guillotine, and to make it feel more like an elite hate item - and less of an overall DPS item.
  • Survivors
      • 🌧🌧🌧 Mobility skills are now considered ‘sprinting’, scaling with sprint speed multipliers and also sprinting after use.
      • Melee Survivors
        • 🌧 Melee skills will now perform more consistently at high attack speeds.
        • Melee skills will now scale hitpause duration with attack speed - since the pause when hitting enemies were static, melee characters actually scaled poorly with attack speed.
        • Melee skills will now ‘hold’ you in the air better at high attack speeds.
      • Added a ‘Keyword’ system. Keywords are just words to describe common repeated behavior without explaining it every time. Added the following keywords:
        • Freezing
          [ Freezing ]
          Freeze enemies in place. Frozen enemies are instantly killed if below 30% health.
        • Stunning
          [ Stunning ]
          Interrupts enemies and briefly stuns them.
        • Shocking
          [ Shocking ]
          Interrupts enemies and stuns them. The stun is removed if the target takes more than 10% of their maximum health in damage.
        • Poisonous
          [ Poisonous ]
          Deal damage equal to 10% of their maximum health over 10s. Poison cannot kill enemies.
        • Regenerative
          [ Regenerative ]
          Heal for 10% of your maximum health over 0.5s.
        • Agile
          [ Agile ]
          The skill can be used while sprinting.
        • Percent HP
          [ Percent HP ]
        • Sonic Boom
          [ Sonic Boom ]

          Reduce movement speed and damage by 40%. Reduce armor by 30.
        • Expose
          [ Expose ]
          Hitting Exposed enemies reduces all skill cooldowns by 1.0s and deals an additional +350% damage.
        • Heavy
          [ Heavy ]
          The skill deals more damage the faster you are moving.
    • MUL-T.png MUL-TMUL-T.pngMUL-TMUL-T is an aggressive survivor who has the tools necessary for any job!
      Class: Melee / Ranged
      HP: 200 (+60 per level)
      Damage: 11 (+2.2 per level)
      Umbra: Right Tool for the Wrong Job

      Developer Notes: MUL-T has gotten some love from this patch to really push forward the idea that his weapons are strong in specific roles. Faster swap time and more responsive actions for the weapons will (hopefully) make weapon swapping feel better. We’ve also admittedly creeped cooldowns down over time, and MUL-T felt a bit left behind.
      • Base Acceleration: 25 ⇒ 30
      • Rebar Puncher.png Rebar PuncherRebar Puncher.pngRebar Puncher (Primary)Fire a piercing rebar that deals 600% damage.
        Survivor: MUL-T
        • Now charges after firing, rather than before.
      • Scrap Launcher.png Scrap LauncherScrap Launcher.pngScrap Launcher (Primary)Fire a rocket that explodes for 360% damage. Hold up to 4.
        Survivor: MUL-T
        • Now behaves like a rocket instead of a grenade
        • Lifetime: 3s ⇒ 4s
        • Explosion Radius: 5m ⇒ 7m
        • Velocity: 70 m/s ⇒ 100 m/s

        Survivor: MUL-T
        • No longer has an initial shotgun of 6 nails.
        • Now has a final shotgun of 12 nails.
        • Now fires in a consistent corkscrew pattern
        • Proc Coefficient: 0.4 ⇒ 0.6
        • Damage: 60% ⇒ 70%
        • Wind-down duration: 0s ⇒ 1.152s
      • Retool.png RetoolRetool.pngRetool (Special)Passively hold TWO equipment at once. Activating 'Retool' switches the active Equipment and MUL-T's primary attack.
        Survivor: MUL-T
        • Swap duration: 0.7s ⇒ 0.4s
      • Transport Mode.png Transport ModeTransport Mode.pngTransport Mode (Utility)Heavy. Zoom forward, gaining 200 armor and 220% movement speed. Deals 250% damage to enemies.
        Survivor: MUL-T
        • Cooldown: 8s ⇒ 6s
    • Mercenary.png MercenaryMercenary.pngMercenaryThe Mercenary is a high skill melee survivor that uses his many dodges to weave in and out of combat.
      Class: Melee
      HP: 110 (+33 per level)
      Damage: 12 (+2.4 per level)
      Umbra: Hired Blade

      Developer Notes: The Mercenary was always supposed to be the highest skill-cap survivor. However, in actual gameplay he became very flow-charty, using abilities directly off cooldown while holding down M1. The intent for all these changes is to allow skill expression, dynamic cooldowns, and higher risk vs reward in fight with the new ‘Exposed’ debuff. The hope is that the character will be stronger for advanced players, but weaker for new players.
      • Base Health: 140 (+42 per level) ⇒ 110 (+33 per level)
      • Base Regeneration: 2.5 health / second ⇒ 1 health / second
      • NEW Debuff: Exposed
        [ Expose ]
        Hitting Exposed enemies reduces all skill cooldowns by 1.0s and deals an additional +350% damage.
        • Striking an Exposed target reduces all cooldowns by 1 second and deals an additional +350% base damage
      • Laser Sword.png Laser SwordLaser Sword.pngLaser Sword (Primary)Agile. Slice in front for 130% damage. Every 3rd hit strikes in a greater area and Expose enemies.
        Survivor: Mercenary
        • Third Strike Damage: 300% ⇒ 130%
        • Third hit now applies ‘Exposed’ debuff
        • The second and third hit of the combo can no longer be started in the middle of other attacks
      • Whirlwind.png WhirlwindWhirlwind.pngWhirlwind (Secondary)Quickly slice horizontally twice, dealing 2x200% damage. If airborne, slice vertically instead.
        Survivor: Mercenary
        • Ground Speed Multiplier: 6 ⇒ 8
      • Blinding Assault.png Blinding AssaultBlinding Assault.pngBlinding Assault (Utility)Stunning. Dash forward, dealing 300% damage. If you hit an enemy, you can dash again, up to 3 total.
        Survivor: Mercenary
        • Cooldown: 7s ⇒ 8s
        • Can now be canceled mid-attack by both Whirlwind and Rising Thunder
      • Slicing Winds.png Slicing WindsSlicing Winds.pngSlicing Winds (Special)Fire a wind of blades that attack up to 3 enemies for 8x100% damage. The last hit Expose enemies.
        Survivor: Mercenary
        • Last hit now applies ‘Exposed’ debuff
    • Acrid.png AcridAcrid.pngAcridAcrid is a melee-range hybrid who uses powerful poisons to melt tanky enemies.
      Class: Melee / Ranged
      HP: 160 (+48 per level)
      Damage: 15 (+3 per level)
      Umbra: Test Subject

      Developer Notes: Acrid has always been a melee-ranged hybrid. We want greater rewards for engaging in melee and completing your M1 combo for players who enjoy a more aggressive playstyle.
      • NEW Buff: Regenerate
        [ Regenerative ]
        Heal for 10% of your maximum health over 0.5s.
        • Regenerate for 10% health over 0.5 seconds.
      • Vicious Wounds.png Vicious WoundsVicious Wounds.pngVicious Wounds (Primary)Maul an enemy for 200% damage. Every 3rd hit is Regenerative and deals 400% damage.
        Survivor: Acrid
        • Third hit of the combo now grants ‘Regenerate’ buff
      • Ravenous Bite.png Ravenous BiteRavenous Bite.pngRavenous Bite (Secondary)Poisonous. Slayer. Regenerative. Bite an enemy for 320% damage.

    • Artificer.png ArtificerArtificer.pngArtificerThe Artificer is a high burst damage survivor who excels in fighting large groups and bosses alike.
      Class: Ranged
      HP: 110 (+33 per level)
      Damage: 12 (+2.4 per level)
      Umbra: Herald of the House Beyond

      Developer Notes: We want to enforce the Artificer’s role as a high-damage, high AoE character. Nano-Bomb in general was core to the fantasy, but was pretty much inferior to Nano-Spear in every way.
      • Plasma Bolt.png Plasma BoltPlasma Bolt.pngPlasma Bolt (Primary)Fire a bolt for 220% damage that explodes in a small area. Hold up to 4.
        Survivor: Artificer
        • Blast Radius: 4m ⇒ 6m

  • Items
    • Monster Tooth.png Monster ToothBgCommon.pngMonster Tooth.pngMonster Tooth
      Drop a healing orb on kill.

      Killing an enemy spawns a healing orb that heals for 8 plus an additional 2% (+2% per stack) of maximum health.
      • Healing: 8 (+8 per stack) ⇒ 8
      • 🌧Now also heals for 2% (+2% per stack) of maximum health
    • Medkit.png MedkitBgCommon.pngMedkit.pngMedkit
      Receive a delayed heal after taking damage.

      2 seconds after getting hurt, heal for 20 plus an additional 5% (+5% per stack) of maximum health.
      • Healing: 24 (+24 per stack) ⇒ 20
      • 🌧Now also heals for 5% (+5% per stack) of maximum health
    • Repulsion Armor Plate.png Repulsion Armor PlateBgCommon.pngRepulsion Armor Plate.pngRepulsion Armor Plate
      Receive flat damage reduction from all attacks.

      Reduce all incoming damage by 5 (+5 per stack). Cannot be reduced below 1.
      • Now properly reduces damage from environmental effects
    • Warbanner.png WarbannerBgCommon.pngWarbanner.pngWarbanner
      Drop a Warbanner on level up or starting the Teleporter event. Grants allies attack and movement speed.

      On level up or starting the Teleporter event, drop a banner that strengthens all allies within 16m (+8m per stack). Raise attack and movement speed by 30%.
      • 🌧 Now also places a Warbanner when activating the Teleporter
      • Improve VFX to be less opaque, since it will always be near the Teleporter
    • Death Mark.png Death MarkBgUncommon.pngDeath Mark.pngDeath Mark
      Enemies with 4 or more debuffs are marked for death, taking bonus damage.

      Enemies with 4 or more debuffs are marked for death, increasing damage taken by 50% from all sources for 7 (+7 per stack) seconds.
      • Debuff Duration: 7s ⇒ 7s (+7s per stack)
      • 🌧Remove text stating that the damage bonus scaled with stacks
    • Old Guillotine.png Old GuillotineBgUncommon.pngOld Guillotine.pngOld Guillotine
      Instantly kill low health Elite monsters.

      Instantly kill Elite monsters below 13% (+13% per stack) health.
      • Execute Threshold: ~20% (+20% per stack) ⇒ 13% (+13% per stack)
        Developer Notes: Since we’ve re-tuned the health of elites across the board, the Guillotine should be appropriately re-tuned as well.
    • Runald’s/Kjaro’s Band
      Developer Notes: The two rings have undergone a bit of a rework, working off of an internal cooldown rather than a chance on-hit. We’re hoping that this can help diversify one of our “on-hit” items to be more than just attacking enemies and hoping things activate. We’ve also changed the behavior of Kjaro’s to be more of the AoE option, while Runald’s is the single target option.
      • Proc Chance: 8% ⇒ 100%
      • Now has an internal cooldown of 10 seconds
      • Now has a minimum threshold of only triggering on attacks that deal 400% or greater damage
      • Runald's Band.png Runald’s BandBgUncommon.pngRunald's Band.pngRunald's Band
