QUALITY OF LIFE IMPROVEMENTS

Gameplay

  • Players can now start a new Whirlwind, Leap, or Leap Attack immediately after a Whirlwind ends.
  • Changed the logic for determining how often Whirlwind attacks occur. Whirlwind now incorporates Increased Attack Speed (IAS) from all equipment. The frames between each Whirlwind attack are equal to the attack frame of a basic attack for that character (modified by increased attack speed). While dual wielding, the attack frame for each weapon will be averaged (rounding up). Overall, Whirlwind attacks should be at least as fast as they were before. Slower weapons will attack notably faster.
  • Added a new “Loot to Cube” skill for controllers in the general skills menu. Using this skill on an item will pick it up and place it in your Horadric Cube, if there is space.
  • Added a bindable hotkey for mouse and keyboard to directly open the Horadric Cube if it is in your inventory.
  • Added a new button shortcut to open the Horadric Cube from the inventory menu.
  • Players can now bulk assign stat points using a controller.
  • A confirmation prompt will now appear when bulk assigning all remaining stat points on both PC and console. This option is unavailable while using legacy graphics.
  • Added an Automap Auto Open setting to allow players to set their preferred Automap position.
  • Barbarian Update
    • Whirlwind: Improve the skill at lower levels.
    • Starting damage% increased from -50 to +30.
