Mob Changes

The Elemental Lord has let himself go and is now slightly easier to defeat:

  • Speed and damage of his Fire Tornados has been reduced
  • His summons will deal more damage to him when they die
  • Once he is below 16% health, killed summons deal their original damage

The Keeper Bear has mellowed out somewhat:

  • Enrage Cooldown: 2s → 4s
  • Charge Cooldown: 11s → 60s

The Keeper Bolt Arrester has given some of his strength to his lightning spell:

  • Hit Points decreased by 40%
  • Getting hit by his lightning will now also slow the player

The Keeper Witch boss has gotten trickier:

  • Added Ranged attack (range: 15m)
  • Melee and Ranged attacks have a shared cooldown
  • Reduced damage of Melee attack
  • Changed attack range to 10m
  • Explosion is now at target and not at caster
  • Explosion damage tripled: 300 → 900
  • Lastly, her visual spell effects have been cleaned up

The Keeper Earthchild, in addition to her visual and audio makeover, has been reworked:

  • Her Earth Spirit Chant spell, which buffs allies' total HP and Damage inflicted, is now a ranged and channeled spell, which she casts at a targeted ally (the visual effects have been updated as well)
  • She also enrages irreversibly if all her nearby allies are killed

The Keeper Stump has been working on his summoning technique:

  • His summons can now move, and leave broken ground behind them, which grasps and slows players who pass through it
  • Summons will gradually lose health and die as they move

The Heretic Brawler boss has a few new tricks up his sleeve:

  • New Spell: Bloodhunt. Boss applies 3 stacks to himself, which he can use to inflict a cleave attack on targets in front of him.
  • Attack speed reduced, attack damage increased
  • Changed Hammer Stun behavior
  • Earlier enrage

The Undead Governor boss has been practicing his Whirling Strike spell:

  • Cast time: 1.8s → 1.6s
  • Added a visual effect trail to the spell
