Patch Changes

March 05, 2019
  • Unending Corruption: This trait has been reworked and renamed Herald of Sorrow.
  • Herald of Sorrow: Equipping this trait turns Desert Shroud into Harbinger Shroud, which removes the pulsing effects of Desert Shroud and instead shifts into a single detonation after a 3-second delay. This trait deals damage, corruption, and conditions in one strike while providing barrier to allies within the vicinity.
