  54.   β—‹ Add new crosshair
  55.   β—‹ Add new bloom effects for Firebolt
  56. β€’ Mercenary
  57.   β—‹ :cloud_rain: Add true invincibility during Eviscerate and Blinding Assault.
  58.   β—‹ :cloud_rain: Add lingering invincibility for 0.6s after Eviscerate ends.
  59.   β—‹ :cloud_rain: Blinding Assault deducts 1 from stock when timed out rather than resetting it all to 0.
  60.   β—‹ :cloud_rain: Add β€œSafe Movement” during Eviscerate and Assaulter to reduce the chance of clipping through geometry
  61. β€’ Engineer
  62.   β—‹ Turret Base Damage: 19 β‡’ 16

  67.   β—‹ Fix Huntress Arrow Rain jump not scaling its animation speed with attack speed
  68.   β—‹ :cloud_rain: Add β€œSafe Movement”  during Blink to reduce the chance of clipping through geometry
  69.   β—‹ Clean up logic in Strafe to possibly prevent double firing
  70. ==== Gameplay Changes cont'd ====
  72. Items
  73. β€’ :cloud_rain: Critical Strikes no longer double/triple/quadruple/etc β€œdip” through the proc chain
  74.     β—‹ On-hit items have accidentally been benefiting multiple times from critical strikes, resulting in each proc doubling in damage for huge multipliers. While neat, this was ultimately unintentional and not sustainable for the game going forward - so we’re ripping the bandaid now and fixing it. On-hit items have been compensated for the removal of power from this fix.
  75. β€’ Frost Relic
  76.   β—‹ Has been reworked in functionality
  77.       β—‹ Now grows in size for every kill, up to a limit that increases with stacking
  78.       β—‹ Damage: 25% (+25% per stack) per kill β‡’ 150% (+150% per stack)
  79.       β—‹ Proc Coefficient: 0.05 β‡’ 0.2
  80.       β—‹ Update graphics to be ~cooler~
  81. β€’ Ceremonial Dagger
  82.   β—‹ :cloud_rain: Update AI to be more accurate and performant
  83.   β—‹ Dagger Damage: 150% β‡’ 150% (+150% per stack)
  84.   β—‹ Dagger Number: 3 daggers (+3 per stack) β‡’ 3 daggers
  85. β€’ Monster Tooth
  86.   β—‹ Healing Orb: 4 (+4 per stack) β‡’ 6 (+6 per stack)
  87. β€’ AP Rounds
  88.   β—‹ Bonus Damage: 20% (+10% per stack) β‡’ 20% (+20% per stack)
  89. β€’ Chronobauble
  90.   β—‹ Slow Duration: 1 (+1 per stack) β‡’ 2 (+2 per stack)
  91.   β—‹ Update tier color outline to match other items
  92. β€’ AtG Missile
  93.   β—‹ Damage: 300% (+300% per stack) additive damage β‡’ 300% (+300% per stack) total damage
  94.   To compensate for the Crit fix, we’ve moved over on-hit effects to deal a percentage of TOTAL damage. That is, if you have a proc that deals 300% damage from an attack that hits for 100, it will hit for 300. Previously it was a complicated additive formula - this change is either neutral or a buff for every character, and GREATLY benefits slow, high-damage attacks like the Artificer’s.
  95. β€’ Ukulele
  96.   β—‹ Damage: 80% additive damage β‡’ 80% total damage
  97. ==== Gameplay Changes cont'd ====

  105. β€’ Kjaro’s Band
  106.   β—‹ Damage: 500% (+250% per stack) additive damage β‡’ 500% (+250% per stack) total damage
  107. β€’ Brilliant Behemoth
  108.   β—‹ Damage: 60% additive damage β‡’ 60% total damage
  109. β€’ Gesture Of the Drowned
  110.   β—‹ Cooldown Reduction: 50%(+50% per stack) β‡’ 50% (+15% per stack)
  111.       β—‹ GoTD, unlike most other Lunar items, doesn’t have stacking drawbacks, and should therefore stack more like a Tier 2 in power.
