Our first major patch of Call of the Mountain brings the latest balance changes as well as Gauntlet updates, a new Lab, and the long-awaited debut of cross-shard friend challenge!
Dev Notes: Balance in 1.10 & 1.11
Patch 1.10 lands three weeks after the Call of the Mountain patch rather than the usual two, which has given us room to lock in more balance changes than usual for the first post-release patch. It’s also not quite enough room to gather data on all the new stuff, so we’ll be following up with more balance changes in just two weeks as part of Patch 1.11. For that patch, we’ll have a greater focus on Targon-specific tuning after using the additional time to observe and test.
Here’s a preview of a few things to expect in 1.11:
- Adjustments to the difficulty of Aurelion Sol’s level up requirement
- Adding escalation to Hush’s repeatable cost
- Grandfather Rumul giving more hugs
