Patch Changes
March 05, 2019
  • Spirits have been reworked as follows:
    • When a spirit pulses its passive effect, it loses health equal to a percentage of its maximum health. (7.5% for nonelite spirits, 3% for elite spirits.)
    • The effect radius of a spirit's active skill has been reduced from 1,000 to 600 for all spirits.
    • Spirits now die automatically if the ranger moves away from the spirit beyond a range of 5,000. Spirits also die automatically if the ranger transitions between water travel and land travel.
    • Fixed a bug that caused underwater spirits to use their unique skill when killed.
  • Reduced the duration of vulnerability that this skill applies to foes from 10 seconds to 6 seconds.
