    Class Sets

    Please note that fixes for all the known issues listed below will be included in an incremental patch after Update 40 launches on October 30.
    • Gardener of Seasons: The delayed heal of Budding does not currently proc the Minor Heroism of Spring or the plant area of Fall.
    • Monolith of Storms:
      • This set currently ignores Line of Sight checks and can damage enemies through walls.
      • The damage from this set does not currently aggro enemies.
    • Nobility in Decay: Using Bitter Harvest to consume your Beautiful Corpse does not currently refresh Beautiful Corpse, even if Beautiful Corpse is off Cooldown.
    • Reawakened Hierophant: Traveling through an Apocryphal Gate multiple times may remove the visual effects from the Reawakened Hierophant buffs.

    • Fixed an issue where the visual effects were not properly displaying for Puncturing Strikes, Spear Shards, and their morphs.

    Class Sets
    • Basalt-Blooded Warrior:
      • Fixed an issue where equipping this set only on your backbar would allow you to constantly refresh Obsidian Stance while bar swapping. 
      • Fixed an issue where acquiring Major Heroism from another source could prevent this set from functioning.
    • Gardener of Seasons:
      • This set now grants Herald of Spring automatically after equipping the set, and no longer has a transition state requirement. You transition to Harbinger of Fall whenever you cast any healing ability while bracing (actively holding block) rather than requiring you to cast two non-Green Balance class abilities. 
      • Reduced the duration of Harbinger of Fall to 6 seconds, down from 10.
      • Harbinger of Fall now applies Major Cowardice rather than Major Maim.
      Developer Comment:
      Much of the feedback for this set noted it was complicated and difficult to engage with, as it heavily limited your ability usage and required you to take actions that were not necessarily intuitive with what was needed in the moment. As such, we’ve greatly simplified the set so Herald of Spring is on by default, and swapping to Harbinger of Fall activates through an action that is more intuitive and natural to needing defensive bonuses. Additionally, the time it takes to go back to Herald of Spring has been reduced so it’s easier to jump between the two, now that there is no conditional requirements to enter Herald of Spring. For the time being, Harbinger of Fall cannot be refreshed while it is active, and instead will require you to meet its conditions again after the original duration has ended. We are still determining if allowing the buff to refresh is desirable enough or not.
    • Monolith of Storms: Fixed an issue where this set could reveal stealthed or invisible targets.
    • Soulcleaver:
      • Fixed an issue where Malevolent Offering and its morphs’ heal and damage done to the caster were not affected by this set.
      • Fixed some tooltip errors with this set not properly displaying values.
    • Wrathsun:
      • Reduced the maximum stack count of Sunlight to 40, down from 50.
      • Fixed an issue where Sunlight could continuously refresh while at maximum stacks in some cases.
      Developer Comment:
      We’re cautiously decreasing the maximum stack count for this set to help better facilitate reaching the reward mechanisms of the set, while also tuning down some of the passive recovery it offered.
