Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Talented » Talented 0.11 Update – Legendary Investment

Hello my Legendary Bandits!

It’s update time, and OH BOY is there a lot to talk about. There should even be some surprises for those who’ve kept up to date with all of the devlogs. Let’s dig in…

New Class – Bandit

Our first new Class in quite some time, and he sure does have class

Cash Money

The Bandit will have access to a new resource – Gold Coins and a new stat – Luck. Luck will affect your percentage change for enemies to drop a Gold Coin upon death.

Luck can be increased by learning the Common [Luck Up] Talents

Hold Your Fire

The Bandit has a higher base attack speed and his basic attacks fire two shots. However, he will have to reload when out of ammo.

Big Spender

You can spend your Gold Coins that may drop from enemies on your abilities. Make the choice, will you spend all your coins defeating enemies, or will you save it for the…

A new Talent can be found on the tree – Cash Out . Once bought, a shop will open and you can spend your Gold Coins on Common and Rare Talents, and even abilities and epics if you’re lucky.

Legendary Gamer Moment

Legendary Talents have been added to the Talent Tree. These Talents will only be available on the tree once per run, and will cost more Talent Points than any other. In the right build they will be game breaking, but they’re designed to also find a useful home in your build.

RNG Pooling

We have reworked how Talents generate in the Talent Tree. Instead of Talents being pulled at random from the total pool of Talents, when the Talent Tree is created at the start of a run, Common Talents will fill a pool. Whenever a Common Talent is placed on the tree, it will be removed from the pool. When the pool is empty, it will refill completely again.

Some Common Talents will appear multiple times in a single pool. (e.g. Attack Speed Up will appear 4 times in a pool for Archer, whereas Damage Up will appear only once).

This change should mean Common Talents will appear more evenly spread throughout the Talent Tree. Rare Talents, Abilities, Enemy Spawns and Enemy Wave Sizes will all use this pooling system also.

Combo Rework

New Combo Levels

Two new Combo Levels have been added, and the number of kills needed to achieve the levels have been adjusted.

  • [Skilled] (+10% XP) – 20 Kills
  • [Gifted] (+25% XP) – 50 Kills
  • [Brilliant] (+50% XP) – 100 Kills
  • [Masterful] (+85% XP) – 250 Kills
  • [Talented] (+125% XP) – 500 Kills
  • [Truly Talented] (+200% XP) – 1000 Kills

Combo Doesn’t Completely Reset

We have also adjusted the Combo Meter penalty for getting hit. Instead of completely losing your Combo if you get hit, you will now be demoted to the previous Combo Level.

Minor Features

We’ve been monitoring the Discord and Steam Discussion forums closely and have hand picked some much requested Quality of Life features for this update. We’ll be continuing to add even more in 0.12 so do keep that feedback rolling in!

  • Added a button to allow Talent Packages to be rerolled on the Run Setup Screen
  • Added a bonus Mastery Level unlock if a run is completed with fewer than 5 hits taken

  • Added a warning popup when exiting a run that explains progress will be lost

Class Balance

Each Class is getting their own set of major changes this update. We’ve been paying close attention to player feedback and doing many, many playtests of our own. Hopefully this should be a step in the right direction of all of our Classes, but do not fear, there will be a lot more to come in the future!
