Depths of Eterra, Patch 0.8.5, is coming 2022-03-18T18:00:00Z!

Depths of Eterra 0.8.5 Overview by Game Director, Judd Cobler

Welcome everyone to the final day of our patch “Hype-Week” *TM (we finally decided on a name)! It’s patch notes day! Enjoy all of the details below and join us us in Eterra tomorrow for the full release of Depths of Eterra!

 

 

Dungeon: Soulfire Bastion

Depths of Eterra introduces the second Dungeon to Last Epoch, Soulfire Bastion - an abandoned Osprix battleground turned imperial facility. Within, Fire Lich Cremorus works on his research of the powerful, and highly valued Soul Embers.

  • Added a new dungeon, Soulfire Bastion.
  • Soulfire Bastion can be accessed through Felled Wood… if you’ve found a key.
  • Soulfire Bastion starts at level 45, and Keys can drop in level 47 areas and above. Beware, if you die in any dungeon, or leave early, you will need to use another key.
  • Inside Soulfire Bastion you will be granted access to a new dungeon specific ability called Soulfire Shield, which can be alternated between Fire and Necrotic to provide immunity from that damage type.
  • Changing the attunement of the Soulfire Shield costs 1 Soul Ember
  • You will chose modifiers while exploring Soulfire Bastion, increasing the danger and rewards.
  • Soulfire Bastion has four tiers. Higher tiers increase area level, increase the power, and number of modifiers, and allow you to unlock more powerful versions of the Soul Gambler.
  • Conquering Soulfire Bastion will grant you access to the stores of the Soul Gambler.

Dungeon Reward: Soul Gambler

  • Soul Embers gathered from killing enemies within Soulfire Bastion can be spent at the Soul Gambler in trade for hidden items. Any remaining Soul Embers are lost upon leaving Soulfire Bastion.
  • The Soul Gambler sells specific item types, such as “helmet”, or “shield” with the possibility of it being any global drop which can be rare, exalted, unique, or set.
  • Modifiers selected while traversing Soulfire Bastion will modify the results of the Soul Gambler’s items

Dungeon: The Lightless Arbor

Depths of Eterra also introduces the third Dungeon to Last Epoch, The Lightless Arbor. Deep under the mountains that house the Last Refuge, a massive Titan made of plant and stone has awoken to the encroaching void. Venture into the The Lightless Arbor, face The Mountain Beneath, and discover a vault lost to history.

  • Added a new Dungeon, Lightless Arbor.
  • Lightless Arbor can be accessed through Shrouded Ridge… if you have found a key.
  • Lightless Arbor starts at level 22, and Keys can drop in level 25 areas and above. Beware, if you die in any dungeon, or leave early, you will need to use another key.
  • Inside Lightless Arbor you will be granted access to the Pyre Amber. This Amber will follow you around the dungeon providing light allowing you to proceed, and weakening enemies.
  • Taking damage will cause the Pyre Amber to lose light radius.
  • Killing Amber Elementals throughout the Dungeon will restore the Pyre Amber’s light radius.
  • You will chose modifiers while exploring Lightless Arbor, increasing the danger and rewards.
  • Lightless Arbor has four tiers. Higher tiers increase area level, increase the power, and number of modifiers, and allow you to unlock more powerful versions of the The Vaults of Uncertain Fate.
  • Conquering Lightless Arbor will grant you access to The Vaults of Uncertain Fate.

Dungeon Reward: The Vaults of Uncertain Fate

Developer Note: Our goals here are to provide an enticing reward for completing this dungeon while also introducing a meaningful gold sink to the game. We’ll be monitoring this system closely for gold costs and balance at patch release.

  • Interacting with the door to the vault of uncertain fate will present you with a sequence of options for modifying the vault contents.
  • Each selected option will modify the vault contents in exchange for gold.
  • Each subsequent modifier will be more expensive than the last based on previous options selected. The higher tier you complete, the higher your reward modifier limit will be:
    • At tier 1 you are limited to 8 mods
    • At tier 2 you are limited to 9 mods
    • At tier 3 you are limited to 10 mods
    • At tier 4 you are limited to 11 mods
  • Declining options will increase the cost, but at a much lower cost.
  • Upon finalizing options, the door will open to reveal a number of chests modified by the selected options which can then be opened for your rewards

Arena of Champions

In the frozen north of Heoborea, a new portal has opened within Jormun’s Fortress - now Champions Gate. Enter through this portal to access The Endless Arena, or face off against one of the new Arena Champions.

  • Added a new Portal Interface to select one of four tiers of Arena of Champions, or Endless Arena. Higher tiers of Arena of Champions will provide greater difficulty, and rewards.
  • Moved the Arena Portal to Champion’s Gate, near the Wengari Fortress in the Divine Era. It cannot be accessed from End of Time.
  • Champion’s Gate includes five different training dummy setups
  • You will be presented with options for modifiers three times during an Arena of Champions run. These will add modifiers to further Arena waves, as well as modify the Arena Champion’s drops.
  • Tier 2 and Tier 4 Arena of Champions runs have a rotating modifier, like dungeons.
  • Beware, if you die in the arena, or leave early, you will need to use another key and will not gain any rewards. Death in the arena also counts as a death for Hardcore characters.

  • Fixed a bug where Lagon’s Tidal Waves, Moving Eye Beam, and Moon Beam, Admiral Harton’s Lightning Storm, and Harton’s Husk’s Void Sundering and Void Decay did not deal 50% less damage to minions.
  • Fixed a bug where the Prophet of Ruin’s Dark Eruption’s damaging area existed for longer than intended.
  • Improved the hitbox of Wengari Matriarch’s Leap Slam attack.

Is it possible to add a condition where healing can also restore the light radius?

Reasonable, but sad. :frowning: Does it tell you a)how many mods you’ve picked & b)what they are?

Yes but I don’t think we will do that as it would give characters who can heal a massive advantage.

astion of Honor

Grants 8 to 14 health gained on block instead of 8% to 14% less damage taken from nearby enemies.
Is now slightly rarer.
Now drops with less legendary potential on average.

WTF are u serious???

My upheaval totem build lives!

It does not give full details of what you have already selected at this time. I do think it is a good idea and something we discussed today.

Will effects like this be changed to be considered “healing” for the sake of “healing effectiveness”?

Good to see the Poison Flurry bugs were fixed :slight_smile:

It’ll be interesting to see where poison channelled flurry lands in terms of dps.

Smelter’s wrath will have synergy with smite?

Dang, was hoping for some Aurelis adjustments to avoid smacking the open air for optimal smite spam, ah well. Looking forward to that new fire bow though and having a reason to go into the Arena.
That Bastion change tho.
Edit: Fire Tornado changes? Nice, just got a 2LP Rule of Simoon too.

How does this work with self damaging stuff like aura of decay poison, reaper form/lich passives decay, death seal damned, health cost skills, etc. ?

OK, one day and let’s go!

No, health gained on block is different than healing.

Will the dungeon bosses/rewards have exclusive uniques as well?

Are those the ones that will come later?
