Patch Changes
October 26, 2021
  • Multiplicative damage reduction enhancements have been updated to display how much damage was reduced by rather than displaying how much the damage is multiplied by. For example, protection now displays "-33% Damage" instead of "67% damage." This is not a change to functionality; it is only a change to display the bonus in a more intuitively understandable way.
October 05, 2021
  • All effects that provide a percentage reduction to incoming damage have been standardized to stack multiplicatively.
February 25, 2020 Competitive content update:
  • (Competitive split) Reduced revive pulse of Geyser from 7% to 1%.
December 03, 2019
  • This trait no longer increases revival speed. Auras granted by this trait are now granted only to the elementalist, and they're now granted at the start of a revival attempt rather than at the end. This effect has a 20-second cooldown.
August 08, 2017 Path of Fire pre-patch:
  • This trait no longer grants an increased revive rate but instead changes the functionality of the Geyser skill, causing it to revive allies in its radius by 7% per tick in addition to healing.
  • This trait now casts Geyser on the elementalist when they begin reviving an ally.
June 23, 2015 Specialization update:
  • Updated this trait to reflect the introduction of the specialization mechanic.
December 10, 2013
  • Moved to the Master tier.
December 14, 2012
  • Applies auras for five seconds instead of 10. Now also increases revive speed by 10%.
December 03, 2012
  • This trait now applies five seconds of aura to allies affected by it.
August 28, 2012 Game release:
  • Arcane Resurrection has been added to the game.
