Event[edit | edit source]

  • The Crystalline Cataclysm Event has returned for 3 weeks with a new reward and gameplay updates!
    • The Entity shards that it deploys are now immune to control effects.
    • Small Shards will no longer buff the Entity’s damage for the entire queue but instead, they will give the entity buff stacks towards a more powerful Energy Release after its Absorption Phase.
      • This change results in a potentially stronger Energy Release attack.
      • In response to that, we’ve added a growing AoE indicator to show the area of the Energy Release and how long it will be before it goes off.
      • The Entity Beam attacks no longer apply a Flight Speed debuff to players.
        • Instead, Large Shards on Advanced Difficulties will apply a Flight Speed debuff if they are able to explode on a player.
    • The Entity is now entirely immune to damage while in its Absorption Phase.
      • The Entity Absorption Phase is now 15 seconds long rather than 30 seconds in Normal.
    • Once the Entity has been destroyed it will explode into many Small Salvageable Crystal Fragments.
      • These fragments can be destroyed to gain 1-5 Salvage from each of them!
    • These changes will not affect the Crystalline Catastrophe non-event queue with the initial rollout.

 Systems[edit | edit source]
