    Necromancer
    • Grave Lord
      • Sacrificial Bones: This ability and the Grave Lord’s Sacrifice morph now increases your damage done with class abilities and Damage over Time effects, rather than only Grave Lord abilities and Damage over Time effects. 
        Developer Comment:
        While this won’t influence too many extra abilities, it should help reward some more niche interaction without any harm.
        • Grave Lord’s Sacrifice (morph): This morph now causes your Flame Skull and morphs’ 3rd cast to deal their damage in an area around the initial target and create a corpse at their location, rather than increasing your damage done with the affected abilities to 20% (now shares the 15% base) and causing you to be treated as a corpse for your next corpse consuming ability.
        Developer Comment:
        We’ve seen a lot of great feedback for the new functionality these abilities have gone through, highlighting both the good and bad that the rework provided. Things are on the right track but we’ve seen many of the short comings that came with the initial proposals. The main areas we’re hoping to improve on with this pass are the following:
        • Your Area of Effect damage capabilities when not taking the Blighted morph, as sacrificing the explosive lad led to a large loss
        • The disruption to the natural flow of corpse generation and consumption, as having all of your corpses spawn around you as the caster led to a highly restrictive playstyle that forced you into melee, while making tethers far more cumbersome to use than intended
        The above adjustments should help alleviate some of the issues the rework imposed, while still offering relatively familiar advantages and experiences to the original ability, but with a simpler to use and build around rotation. We’ll continue to keep an eye on this ability and its morphs as the year progresses and data comes in; we’re aware that the ability likely still hasn’t hit its perfect mark just yet, but we’re hopeful that it’s still an improvement for a large amount of players who were previously put off by how demanding the class was.

    Crafted Sets
    • Clever Alchemist: Fixed an issue where this set could stack in some cases.

    Dungeon Sets
    • Cinders of Anthelmir: Fixed an issue where the telegraph for this set was visible to the caster and enemies, rather than just enemies.
