Hey crawlers – since a pretty significant number of changes have just landed, here’s an update sooner than usual!

  • The ring of Shadows now has a small umbra in lieu of EV+4 and AC-4.
  • Racial armour has been removed (thus there is no racial equipment left).
  • Nemelex’s deck gifts are now independent of sacrifice type.
  • New summoning spells:
    • Summon Mana Viper (L5 Summoning/Hexes); it appears in the Book of Beasts.
    • Monstrous Menagerie (L6 Summoning), which summons a manticore, some harpies, a lindwurm, or a sphinx (at high spellpower); it appears in the book of Beasts and the book of Summonings (replacing Summon Ugly Thing).
    • Forceful Dismissal (L6 Summoning), which ends all player summons and damages enemies next to them; it appears in the Grand Grimoire.
    • Aura of Abjuration (L6 Summoning), a less powerful but per-turn mass abjuration effect; it replaces Mass Abjuration in the Grand Grimoire.
    • Spellforged Servitor (L7 Conjuration/Summoning), which summons a servitor with a subset of the player’s most destructive conjurations; it replaces Fireball in the book of Wizardry.
    • Dragon’s Call (L9 Summoning), which for its duration of effect summons dragons near targets at the end of LOS (at the full spell cost per summon); replaces Summon Dragon in the Book of the Dragon.
  • Removed spells: Summon Ugly Thing, Demonic Horde, Mass Abjuration, Summon Dragon.
  • Poison damage is now deterministic.
  • Fighters and Gladiators now start with better weapons.

Most of these changes are now live on the servers, so happy crawling!
