when did penance start causing god wrath?

A few hundred turns later and I get a couple stone giants and a high level merfolk pack dropped on me... in lair at XL12. When did this become a thing and why is it a th...

Would it be so bad if maces could generate with vamp or double swords could show up with protection? Why don't quick blades get anything at all? (special cases/vaults/uniques/randarts aside)
