DEFENDERS,

Today we are making our first significant balance pass on Dungeon Defenders Going Rogue. We have collected a ton of useful data internally as well as from the speedrun competition and community at large. This is just our first pass at balance and you can expect more patches in the future as we continue to iterate!

    Balance

    Ancient Dragon

    • Will no longer have a random number of flying patterns or fire barrage attacks while flying. As before, the Ancient Dragon will do 3 charges in each phase. Previously it  had a chance to change directions, but now it will always continue along the same clockwise or counter clockwise path depending on how it started.

    Goblin Mech 

    • Saw Blades before charge and during Self-Destruct will now be slower and easier to dodge, but will do more damage. The Self Destruct countdown has also been slightly increased to help ease some frustration.
      • Saw Blade speed reduced by 25%.
      • Saw Blade damage increased by 15%.
      • Self Destruct time increased to 25s from 20s.

    General

    • Dash will no longer cancel Mana Bomb, Arcane Surge, and Arcane Blast (and other charged/cast abilities in the future)
    • Removed jumping animation (and its long cast time) from Apprentice Mana Bomb and reduced overall cast time from 1s to .5s
    • Apprentice's Overcharge now also increases movement speed by 25% and scales from Ability Power
    • Reduced firing angle on Apprentice weapons with multiple projectiles
    • Removed timer from loot phase
