Ascension Part II is here for Steam! Here are the notes:
Two New Maps!
The Deadly Road: Enshrouded in tales of ghost sightings and vanishing caravans, the Dead Road has been actively avoided by travelers since its discovery. Many brave souls have tried exploring the ruined catacombs in search of treasure, but none have emerged alive.
Temple of the Necrotic: Deep in the woods of Etheria, there exists a temple built in the space between life and death. A powerful artifact has appeared inside of the structure, throwing the forces governing the living and the dead into total chaos.
New Event: Spooky 2015
Cut a hole in your chair and grab a bucket because you’re gonna s*** yourself with our first Holiday event. Maldonis the Dark has invaded Etheria, and he brought some ghoulish new friends with him. Be on the lookout for some seriously spooky secrets in each of the new maps!
Steam Trading Cards
Added 15 Steam Trading Cards. Collect them all for Steam badges, emoticons, profile backgrounds -- the whole shebang. (That word seems a lot dirtier when you see it on paper.)
Complete the 8 new Challenges for a spooky surprise. You’ll need to act fast as these Challenges are only available for a limited time!
Four New DPS Weapons
Added four new weapons, each with a unique DPS-focused passive.
Become the Bag Master. You make the rules now.
Tell your bags to filter in certain types of loot automatically during Auto Collect. For example, tell a bag to filter in all Legendary loot. All Legendary loot that is Auto-Collected from the ground will automatically go into that bag. That’s right, Champ. You’re the boss. The Bag Boss. That’s higher than Bag Master. You were promoted just by reading the patch notes.
Added 13 Auto-Collect filters to bags. The sky's the limit within these 13 specific filters.
New Tavern Decorations
The tavern has been spookified. The Grumpy old man isn’t too pleased, but what do you expect.
Dark Arts Apprentice Costume
4 Mythical Accessories
Unique Heal, Spawn, Death and Mana Bomb Animations
