Patch Changes
August 23, 2022
  • (PvE only) All ranger spirits are now immune to crowd control on a PvE map.
August 02, 2022
  • Fixed a bug that caused spirit boons to be granted in a circle around the ranger instead of the spirit.
June 28, 2022
  • Spirit skills now affect 5 allied targets.
  • Spirits no longer apply effects when an ally in the radius strikes an enemy. Instead, each spirit applies a boon to allied targets in the radius at each 3-second interval. The Nature's Vengeance trait increases the base duration of these boons by 50% and causes spirits' activated skills to apply alacrity to allies in an area.
  • Spirits and their applied boons are as follows:

    • 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.
