Halloween Themed Tavern and Town

The town and tavern have been given a Halloween theme. Peepers now has the spooktacular crate and a defender pack as well as the normal daily gift!

Stat Squish

We have decreased all damage and health values of players and enemies by 10x. You should not notice any in-game difference of difficulty except in Onslaught floor 946 and above and high survival waves.  This was done to help avoid damage numbers above the 32-bit integer limit.


  • Increased the Firework Cannon damage scalar by 15%.

  • Increased the Sand Viper damage scalar by 15%.

  • Increased Angry Nimbus base attack rate from 1s to 1.25s.

  • Decreased the Nether Archer damage scalar by 20%.

  • Decreased Ancient Life steal from 1% per upgrade to 0.5% per upgrade.

  • Decreased Drill Smash scalar by 30%.

  • Decreased Explosive Blades Shard scaling from 1,500-5,000% to 500-2300%.

  • Crystal Hammer Max range increased from 4500 to 5000 and the range scalar from 0.5 to 0.65.

  • Moss Hornet Nest max number of bees on a single target increased from 3 to 6.

  • Changed armor formula as well as resistance calculations, the new armor formula is:

ArmorDamageResist = Min(Damage / (Damage + ArmorStat * 25), 0.3)

the cap is 70% damage resistance from just armor. The rest of the damage reduction calculation is: 

TotalDamageReduction = Min(ArmorDamageResist * DamageResistStat, 0.05)

Then this is used as a multiplier for incoming damage. For example, if you get capped damage resist from armor, 70%, and you have a total of 95% resist from equipment and talents the damage calculation would be:

FinalDamage = Damage * Min(0.3 * 0.1), 0.05)

This is an overall net buff across all chaos levels.

  • Changed petrify to not accumulate damage and removed damage increase while petrified.

  • Moved survival buffs to start at waves 276 - 466 ( Adjusted for stat Squish ).
