Hotfix 7.2 for Steam

Here are the notes for Hotfix 7.2!


Features

  • Auto-Collect Per Wave!

    • Auto-Collect now also runs at the beginning of Combat Phase starting on wave/round 2.

    • It leaves items on the ground once the Auto-Collect bags are full.

    • A chat message appears to let the player know how many items were picked up.

  • Pet Hatching Timer Change

    • Thanks to player feedback, pets will now always hatch after one second!

  • Pet Bag Slot Purchase

    • Players can now buy more slots for the Pet Bag! The Pet Bag size can be increased up to 80 slots.


Content

  • Added 4 Skeleton Costumes, one for each hero! [Limited Edition]

  • Added the Grave Danger Costume Pack to the Steam store

    • Includes the above Skeleton Costumes, plus

    • Exclusive “Bone Collector” Title

    • Headless Horseman Premium Pet

    • 3000 gems (+20% bonus gems)


Balance

  • Item Enhancement was very costly at the high end. In a first step towards improving the system, the cost of enhancing items was reduced by ~66%.

  • Increased the sell value of Legendary items by 75%.

  • Pet Costs and XP:

    • Reduced the gold cost required to level up Pet Power

    • Reduced the gold cost required for Pet Rerolling

  • Increased the health of the Campaign Throne Room Ogre.

  • Multiple projectile weapon critical damage change:  Technically a bug fix, but including here in the balance section for visibility. Each projectile now gains a relative portion of Hero Critical Damage depending on how many projectiles were fired. Before, each projectile gained the full bonus of Hero Critical Damage.


Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a few server crashes.

  • Fixed an issue where the tooltip text for the third stat on an item was too small.

  • Flying enemies in Little-Horn Valley no longer get stuck in the spawner.

  • Lane wisps in Throne Room should now have the correct resistance color.

  • Fixed an issue where other players could easily obstruct the view in the Costume Shop.

  • Fixed an issue where after rebinding the Mana Drop keys, the keys would no longer work.

  • Added a potential fix to the black tower graphics bug.

  • Fixed an issue where pet stats could reroll its Empowerment Stats to the same type.

  • Fixed an issue with the chance rate in the Dragon egg.

  • Fixed an issue where Throne Room Onslaught had incorrect lane spawner billboards.

  • Fixed an issue where all heroes would appear invisible while at the Hero Deck in the Forge.

  • Fixed an issue where players could purchase and have 2 Serenity Range Gambit Skill Spheres even though it's a Large Sphere.

  • Added missing VFX to the Tier 3 Ranged Goblin.

  • Fixed an issue where some Small Skill Spheres were showing up as IV when they were actually III.

  • Fixed an issue where, with a controller active, the keybinds for actions assigned to the keyboard all say "[No Key]" in the options menu.

  • Fixed an issue where there is no VFX in the Petrinarian for the Dragolich pet.

  • Fixed an issue with hero lighting at the Forge.

  • Fixed an issue where the Headless Horseman's attack animation does not play if he kills an enemy and then immediately attacks another.

  • Fixed an issue where the tooltips no longer stated which item is the currently equipped one.

  • Fixed an issue where rapidly clicking on the right-click attack with 1/second ranged weapons while holding down the primary attack will give a huge, unintended Ranged DPS Boost.

  • Fixed an issue where Attack Damage is showing as Max HP in the Inspect Defense for the Training Dummy.

  • Fixed an issue where the default Huntress bow had a grey box in the tooltip for the projectile type icon.

  • Fixed an issue where the Serenity Aura range gambit Large Sphere reduced the health of ALL auras.

  • Fixed an issue where minimizing a bag in Customize mode made the UI display incorrectly.

  • Fixed an issue where after unlocking an NPC via progression, that HUD text showing the unlock requirement was still shown.

  • Fixed an issue where the "Confirm Controller Support" prompt always displayed when a player made a change and clicked Apply in the Options while the controller was active.

  • Fixed an issue where the Blizzard pet ability buff was not playing sounds.

  • Fixed an issue where Defense Range Skill Spheres were not affecting Uber Defenses.

  • Fixed a bug where pet VFX would disappear in the Pet Shop UI after evolution.

  • Fixed a bug where eggs would get their stat points reset, causing the UI to display a rot timer after incubation has finished.

  • Fixed an issue with the Tier Orc icons not appearing correctly on the Mini-map.

  • Fixed an issue with one of the Squire’s medium melee attack swings playing sound too early.

  • Fixed a visual issue with the Headless Horseman.

  • Fixed an issue where players were sometimes unable to purchase anything.

  • Fixed an issue with NPC unlocking after completing all of the quests.

  • Fixed a visual bug in the Pet Shop.

  • Fixed an issue where a pet wouldn’t appear after loading into a map.

Thanks for the cool improvements.

The per-wave-auto-loot did not make my day... it made my WEEK. At the devstream you seemed rather restrained to me about this question and now you're already presenting it in the hotfix. :-D Thank you!


And the pet updates... are just awesome. 


...now I'm just longing for the pack to appear in the steam shop.

Okay so I'm noticing conflicting information already.

Before now each Power Level was 5000exp*current level. But that seemed the same...up until around level 4 where I tried putting in 10 fish at once with an immediate 3 level boost. Then the same thing again, bringing me up to level 10. Did the food change values or is something up with how exp is handed out?

Will continue further.

Edit: Also, rerolling seems somewhat broken at the moment, unless that's just my end.

A moment of silence for those who built crit...

But otherwise I love all the other changes.

Crit just works normally now.. before they were abused due to the way how crit dmg works in this game. I wouldn't say that makes it not worth building crit anymore.

I've just signed in and my Egg still has 55mins to patch and I do not see the costumes to buy yet or even the Steam store to purchase... Is it free with digital deluxe (hopefully it is )

Awesome!

Now if you could please put "auto sell all below-mythical items at the end of each wave without us having to manually sell it all" option, it would be fantastic.

And PLEASE disable the awful color light-beams on below mythical items!!

Eggs that were placed in the incubator before the update will have to wait the full timer to hatch. Once that egg has hatched, the rest of your eggs will have a one-second hatch timer.

Costumes are going up later today!
