Hotfix 18.10.2


  • Rathuum 2 (Medium) now gives 10 Judgement Points upon completion.
  • Rathuum 3 (Hard) now gives 25 Judgement Points upon completion.
  • Reduced the accuracy of long-range Rathuum unit Executioner Harkonar.
  • Executioner Reth: Drakgoon damage reduced by 75%, Reth Roller damage reduced by 50%.
  • Executioner Nok: Damage on his Sobek has been halved, but Status Proc chance has been increased by 10%. Deth Carabus damage reduced to 1% Max Health / tick from 15% Max Health / tick, and a cool down of 6 seconds has been added so they can’t immediately attack again once the beam has been broken. Accuracy reduced at longer ranges.There was a bug in the design, the ray was only supposed to last a couple of seconds and then go on cool down. Instead they were just attacking continuously and had no cool down. Status Chance was added to help offset some of the damage lost on the Sobek and Deth Carabus nerfs. He has a chance to apply the Corrosive debuff, which will reduce armour, making his allies deal more damage.
  • Balanced Rathuum executioner weapons by reducing the enemy Drakgoon’s weapon by almost half, and increasing the enemy Sobek’s Status Chance by 10%.
  • Executioner Dok Thul and Executioner Vay Molta: Damage on the Hinds has been halved, and now falls off between 20-30m, down to a minimum amount of damage.
  • Reduced Rathuum enemy Health and Armor by 50-75%, but boosted Shields.
  • Executioner Garesh: Grappling Hook removed.
  • Carabus enemies have been physically scaled up by 50%.
