DD2 Update 5 Hotfix v2

[CG] Andrew



Today we are redeploying our most recent DD2 update. The original version of this patch caused significant server issues that we believe to be resolved with this hotfix. In addition to the original patch we have added a few extra changes as well (which I have italicized for easier parsing). Thanks again for all of your patience while we're working to resolve these issues.

Abyss Lord Changes


  • Changed the Abyss Lord hero damage multiplier to 5.
  • Changed the right click scalar of the Abyss Lord to from 3 to 2.
  • The Abyss Lord can now hold right click to auto activate their charged attacks (Helps prevents clicker spam).
  • Changed right click cast time to be a base 1.25 instead of 1.5 to match the animation better.


  • Abyss Stone - Abyssal Stone now has a 10s cooldown, but the damage scalar has been increased.
  • Direct Command - Direct Command now has a 20s cooldown but can affect multiple towers at once within a radius, and affected tower abilities now scale off of their tower damage.
