PATCH NOTES 0.34.0 – June 9th, 2021 – edited

Welcome friends to patch notes version 0.34.0! Join me, your friend Aesop, as I guide you through this beefy major patch! There’s a lot of (good) stuff in it, so let’s just jump right into it.

Servers will go down to apply the patch on the 9th from 7PM until 11PM (PT).

[Additional Patch Notes]

Main Improvements

  • If your inventory is full, you can still can craft items. The finished item will be dropped instead of canceling. (Ex: If you have 2 Bread 2 Meat with an full inventory, you can still craft it into a hamburger, which will drop on the ground when complete)

Patch Notes – Quick Look

New Character – Rio

Rio is now ready to pierce Lumia with her arrows. 

Rio will cost 9,900 A-Coin for 2 weeks and she will be available in ranked matches starting from Sunday, June 13th 11:00 PM (PT).

Hassetsu (Passive)

Rio’s normal attacks and skills ignore 5/7.5/10% (+0.25% per 1% of Critical Strike Chance) of her enemies defense based on her critical strike chance.

Her normal attacks can’t critically strike but deal increased damage.

  • Enhanced Normal Attack: 110%+{(Critical Strike Chance (%) + Skill Amplification (%)) * (75%+Critical Strike Damage increase)}.
  • The percentage for ‘(Critical Strike Chance (%) + Skill Amplification (%))’ cannot exceed 100%.

Kyudo Instinct (Q)

Passive: Normal attacks or skills grant her a stack of Flow. Upon reaching 3 stacks, dealing damage with Rio’s next normal attack or skill triggers an effect depending on her current bow.

Hankyu:

  • 2 arrows are fired with each normal attack, dealing 40/43/46/49/52% and 40/43/46/49/52% of Rio’s normal attack damage.
  • Upon reaching 3 stacks of flow, damaging an enemy with Rio’s next attack or skill increases her movement speed by 12/14/16/18/20% and attack speed by 10/15/20/25/30% for 2 seconds.

Daikyu:

  • Daikyu: 1 powerful arrow is fired with each normal attack, dealing 110/114/118/122/126% of normal attack damage.
  • Upon reaching 3 stacks of flow, damaging an enemy with Rio’s next attack or skill deals an additional 0.5% damage per 1% of her target’s missing HP and slows them by 10/15/20/25/30% for 1.5 seconds.

Toggle: Rio switches between her Hankyu and Daikyu.

  • Cooldown : 1s (Not affected by Cooldown Reduction)
  • SP Cost : 0
  • Hankyu Range : 4.2m
  • Daikyu Range : 6.8m
  • Daikyu’s Attack Speed reduction: -0.3

Hanare (W)

Hankyu:

Rio fires arrows in a cone shape, dealing 30/50/70/90/110 (+Attack Power 30%) damage to enemies in range. A breeze is created at the site where targets were hit for 1.5 seconds, slowing them by 30/35/40/45/50%.

  • Arrows fired: 5
  • Range: 7m
  • Width: 0.6m

Daikyu:

Rio fires a single arrow in the targeted direction, dealing 45/90/135/180/225 (+Attack Power 55%) damage to enemies hit and 15/40/65/90/115 (+Attack Power 55%) damage to enemies behind the target in a cone shape. Hitting enemies reduces the cooldown of Hanare by 70%.

  • Range: 10m
  • Width: 1.2m
  • Cooldown : 10/9/8/7/6s
  • SP Cost : 50/60/70/80/90

Soar (E)

Hankyu:

Rio lunges into the targeted direction, firing 2 arrows at up to 3 enemies in range each dealing 40/50/60/70/80(+Attack Power 30%) damage. Hitting an enemy reduces the cooldown of Soar to 5/4.5/4/3.5/3s.

Daikyu:

Rio jumps into the targeted direction, firing 1 arrow at up to 3 enemies in range, dealing 50/70/90/110/130 (+Attack Power 40%) damage and 25/35/45/55/65 (+Attack Power 40%) damage around the target in a 2m radius. Hitting an enemy reduces the cooldown of Soar to 5/4.5/4/3.5/3.

  • Cooldown : 10s (Not affected by Cooldown Reduction)
  • SP Cost : 50/70/90/110/130
  • Movement range : 4m

Fleeting Soul/Spirit Arrow (R)

Hankyu:

Rio fires 3 arrows in the targeted direction, dealing 40/70/100 (+Attack Power 30%) damage per arrow. Each hit reduces the cooldown of Fleeting Soul/Spirit Arrow by 5s. After firing 3 arrows, she fires an extra arrow, dealing 150/200/250 (+Attack Power 60%) damage and knocking enemies back 4m. Enemies knocked into a wall are stunned for 1 second.

  • Range : 8m
  • Width : 1.2

Daikyu:

Rio channels and fires an arrow in the targeted direction, dealing 300/350/400 (+Attack Power 40%) damage to enemies hit and slows them by 80% for 2 seconds. 0.8s seconds after firing, the arrow’s speed increases by 20% and its damage is increased by 30%.

  • Range : 60m
  • Width : 1.2
  • Cooldown : 100/80/60s
  • SP Cost : 100/120/140

System

Team Modes Revival & Pings Implementation

Team modes will now have a Revival System to bring back fully dead teammates!

  • Collect Regeneration Cuffs from the corpses of your allies. (Collection time: 5s)
  • You can revive allies through a Revive Terminal in Hospital, Hotel, Dock using Regeneration Cuffs. (Revival time: 7s)
  • A Revive Terminal can only be used once per game and will be disabled after usage. (The icon will also disappear from the map)
  • Allies revive with full HP & SP and keep their weapon. However, everything else will remain on the corpse.

Team Modes Pings

  • Alt + left clicking an area when using the hyperloop map will trigger an Area Ping. Items and number of items will also be displayed if the area contains targeted items.
  • Alt + left clicking an ally portrait will display the teammate’s current condition. (Alive, downed, dead etc.)
  • Alt + left clicking the ult indicator next to your teammate’s portrait will display the ult’s current status in the chat window.
  • When pinging a skill, cases such as stacking skills or out of SP are added.

When a teammate dies early, it can be a very hard obstacle to overcome. It just kind of results in running away and playing for placement.

We know that this feels bad for players.

We focused a bit of our resources on a revival system and are now implementing it a month early! There are, however, a few details that we wished were better. We don’t foresee it being too strong in any modes, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on it.

We’ll also be improving the overall functionality of it in coming updates.

Practice Mode

Want to practice your combos? Calculate your DPS from a build? Try out a new character? Good news: now you can! All thanks to the new Practice Mode!

Practice Mode will have the following features:

Map Adjustments

  • Night/Day Shift
  • Designate/Disable a Restricted Area
  • Teleport

Character Adjustments

  • Increase All Mastery Levels
  • Recover HP
  • Recover SP
  • Remove Cooldowns
  • Reset Character (Resets character and mastery levels)

Other Functions

  • Get item (Get item inside Crafting Menu)
  • Spawn Wild Animal
  • Spawn Dummy (Able to set HP, Defense, HP regen. Displays accumulated damage and Damage timer)

Materials Placement per area

Consider the following:

You spawn in Archery Range and you need oil. Your spawn is the building right in the center! Nice! You check the containers near you. You see: Nail x5, Iron Ball x2, Egg x2, Bow x1. Oil… x0. You go to the back of the Archery Range and you get Oil x5.

Annoying, right?

This was thanks to the true random distribution of items in zones.

Now, items are no longer truly randomly distributed. A new Pseudo Random Distribution algorithm will distribute items within an area so that materials are better divided!

Kill experience & MMR adjustment

One of the worst experiences in Eternal Return is getting griefed and dying early.

We’re lowering the ‘rewards’ of early kills and reducing the penalty for early deaths so that players will be better prepared for fights.

Kill experience is decreased, especially when killing low level players.

  • Previous: (70 * Enemy Level) – 60 (When killing a 10 lvl enemy: 640)
  • Changed: (85 * Enemy Level) – 350 (Minimum: 50) (When killing a level 10 enemy: 500)

LP gain for early kills are decreased, LP gain for late game kills are increased.

  • Less LP is gained from killing lower level enemies.
  • More LP is gained from killing higher level enemies.
  • LP loss for dying is the same as original. (Only the original extra kill bonus has been adjusted.)

Through Low Placement Calibration, LP loss for fast deaths will be decreased.

  • Low Placement Calibration for Gold and below are strengthened. For example, in Silver, placing in at 13th~18th place will now be calibrated to 13th place. (Originally 15th place, varies based on rank)
  • Low Placement Calibration in Team modes are also slightly strengthened.
  • Low Placement Calibration for using new characters in ranked are strengthened. For the first 5 matches, placements for 12th~18th will be calibrated to 12th place. (Originally 14th place)

Coupon System

A new coupon system is now available. Get ready for some nice discounts!

Our very first coupon will be for Aya Emotes available for everyone!

Character

Nadine

Once Nadine gets those Wild stacks, she becomes very strong, especially in final restricted areas. We’re adjusting her a bit to ensure that regular damage dealers aren’t hopeless against her.

  • Wild(P)
    • Stacks from Chicken 1/2/3 → 1/1/2
    • Stacks from Bat/Boar 3/4/5 → 2/3/4
    • Stacks from Wild Dogs/Wolves 6/7/8 → 4/5/6
    • Stacks from Bears 11/13/15 → 11/12/13
  • Squirrel Trap (W)
    • Projectile Damage 100/170/240/310/380(+Attack Power 60%) → 50/100/150/200/250(+Attack Power 75%)
    • Attack Speed Reduction 70% → 30%
    • Trap HP 10 → 8
    • Cooldown 26/22/18/14/10s → 22/19/16/13/10s
  • Wolf Assault(R)
    • Attack Speed Reduction 35% → 20%
    • Cooldown 90/75/60s → 80/70/60s

Lenox

An early purple weapon plus Blue Viper made Lenox very oppressive early fights around Tree of Life. We’re going to take away some strength but give her some more HP to compensate for it.

  • HP per Level 77 → 81
  • Blue Viper(R)
    • Damage 50/100/150(+Attack Power 80%) → 50/100/150(+Attack Power 70%)

Leon

Following the last few patches, Leon is in a much better place. He just needs a little bit more utility to chase/finish kills.

  • Pool Duration 4s → 5s
  • Human Torpedo (P)
    • Movement speed Increase 5/10/15% → 8/16/24%

Rozzi

Flutter was shredding a bit too much defense.

  • Flutter (W)
    • Defense Reduction 12/14/16/18/20% → 9/11/13/15/17%

Li Dailin

Following some previous nerfs, the Spirited Master was hurting. However, Glove Dailin has been noticeably improving. We’re giving her a slight buff but will keep an eye on her over coming days.

  • Bottom Shelf(E)
    • Silence Duration when Tipsy 1.6s → 1.75s

Magnus

Magnus is toughening up.

  • Tough Body (P)
    • Defense Increase per 1% HP lost: 0.2/0.4/0.6% → 0.2/0.6/1.0%

Bernice

In lower tiers, Bernice has been abusing melee characters. We’re toning down some of his strength against them, giving people more chances to outplay him, but brushing up his low-end strength of his passive.

  • Buckshot(P)
    • Damage: Attack Power 70/85/100%~91/115/133% → 74/87/103%~96/108/120%

Adela

Adela deserves just a slight buff for her later game mobility.

  • Castling (E)
    • Cooldown 20/18.5/17/15.5/14s → 20/18/16/14/12s

Adriana

Adriana’s Flamethrower just needs to be a bit hotter.

  • Flamethrower(Q)
    • Damage:12/14/16/18/20(+Attack Power 10/15/20/25/30%) → 16/18/20/22/24(+Attack Power 10/15/20/25/30%)

Aya

Aya uses each weapon rather differently. These changes should round things out a bit.

  • Base Defense 18 → 20
  • Aya’s Justice (P)
    • Cooldown Reduction when hit 2s → 1.5s
  • Moving Turn (E)
    • Cooldown 22/19/16/13/10s → 20/18/16/14/12s
  • Blank Cartridge(R)
    • Damage 200~400/300~600/400~800(+Attack Power 50~100%) → 175~350/250~500/325~650(+Attack Power 50~100%)
    • Cooldown 100/70/40s → 90/65/40s

Isol

The Guerilla has a low pick rate, but still performs well pretty much everywhere. We’re lowering the damage of his Semtex Bomb but making it easier to attach to enemies.

  • Semtex Bomb(Q)
    • Latch Range 1.2m → 1.3m
    • Base Damage 50/75/100/125/150(+Attack Power 40%) → 20/40/60/80/100(+Attack Power 40%)
    • Cooldown 18/16/14/12/10s → 16/15/14/13/12s

Alex

Alex was designed to give players a fun and unique, but challenging and rewarding, experience by being able to use a variety of weapons. His passive, Infiltration, somewhat suppressed this. In order to make the overall concept of what we intended to do for Alex, we have changed his passive to work differently so that he can use various weapons intuitively.

  • Base Attack Speed 0.18 → 0.11
  • Attack Power per Level 2.4 → 2.1
  • Infiltration (P)
    • Enters Infiltration starting from level 6 (REMOVED)
    • (NEW) Enters Infiltration for 4s with a kill or assist
      • Actions that remove invisibility, such as crafting or collecting, stops Alex from entering Infiltration
    • HP increase in Melee Form 50/100/150 (REMOVED)
    • Defense increase in Melee Form 5/10/15 → 10/15/20
  • Dead Drop (Melee W)
    • Damage 60/90/120/150/180(+Attack Power 40%) → 60/90/120/150/180(+Attack Power 50%)
    • Cooldown 10s → 12s
  • Recognition Signal (Ranged W)
    • Damage 40/60/80/100/120(+Attack Power 40%) → 40/80/120/160/200(+Attack Power 40%)
    • Cooldown 13s → 15s
  • Double Agent (Melee E)
    • Able to swap weapons after 1s → Able to swap weapons immediately (4s duration)
    • Infiltration after skill use 5s → 4s
      • Infiltration & Weapon swap status occurs starting from level 6
    • Cooldown 18s → 20s
  • Blowback (Ranged E)
    • Able to swap weapons after 1s → Able to swap weapons immediately (4s duration)
    • Infiltration after skill use 5s → 4s
      • Infiltration & Weapon swap status occurs starting from level 6
    • Cooldown 22/20/18/16/14s → 20/19/18/17/16s

Emma

Emma was, overall, performing somewhat poorly – but is still powerful late game in higher tiers.

  • Attack Power per Level 2.2 → 2.0
  • Dove Dealer(Q)
    • Movement Speed Reduction when hit by both cards 40% → 50% for 1s

Yuki

Dual Sword Yuki hasn’t been putting on much of a show for a while now, mostly following the removal of solo mod adjustments. We’re adjusting how Cufflinks work to make him… better.

  • Perfect Fit(P)
    • Out of combat Cufflink recover rate: 1 cufflink per 4s → 1 cufflink per 3s
  • Normal attacking with Dual Swords now only uses up 1 cufflink.
    • The extra damage is applied for both hits.

Eleven

We have made her skill shots much more rewarding when hit and made her skill points more important to use.

  • Base HP Regen 1.1 → 1.3
  • Ground Beef(P)
    • Slider HP Recovery 20 for 8s → 25 for 4s
    • #11 Combo Meal HP Recovery 880 → 950
  • Burger Queen(Q)
    • Damage 100/130/160/190/220(+Attack Power 50%) → 100/140/180/220/260(+Attack Power 50%)
    • Movement Speed Reduction when Charged: 20/25/30/35/40% for 2s→ 25/35/45/55/65% for 2s
  • Food For Thought(W)
    • Taunt radius 2.0m → 2.25m
    • Taunt Duration 0.6/0.7/0.8/0.9/1.0s → 0.8/0.9/1.0/1.1/1.2s
    • Taunt Duration when Charged 1/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8s → 1.4/1.5/1.6/1.7/1.8s
  • On Air!(E)
    • Cooldown 20/19/18/17/16s → 22/20/18/16/14s

Zahir

Even after lowering the cast time for Narayanastra, Zahir has been dominating in low tier games. (People are good at landing skill shots) We’re increasing the cast time a bit and have reworked Bhargavastra(R) to help reward good play.

  • Eye of Azrael(P)
    • Damage 10/20/30(+Attack Power 25%) → 10/20/30(+Attack Power 15%)
    • Movement Speed Increase 18/20/22% → 15/20/25%
  • Narayanastra(Q)
    • Cast time 0.53s → 0.59s
    • Eye of Azrael Extra Damage 75/150/225/300/375 → 100/150/200/250/300
  • Bhargavastra(R) (REWORK)
    • Zahir channels his inner strength and unleashes multiple Chakrams in the targeted direction.
    • After the initial impact, the Chakrams rain down 4 times in a line every 0.75 seconds.
    • Target Range: 0m ~ 8m
    • Range: 6m
    • Radius: 2m (Original : 2.25m)
    • Initial damage: 80/110/140(+Attack Power 65%)
    • Follow-up Damage: 50/75/100(+Attack Power 65%)
    • SP Cost : 120/150/180
    • Cooldown 95/75/55s

If you do not choose a direction, Bhargavastra will behave like the pre-rework version.

Cathy

Late game Cathy has been struggling.

  • HP per level 77 → 82

Fiora

Attaque Composée is better early but will be less of a menace in late game brawls.

  • Attaque Composée(W)
    • Cooldown 20/17/14/11/8s → 18/16/14/12/10s

Hyejin

Slight adjustment to the Star-Crossed Shaman to move away some of the attack speed strength but still helping her scale.

  • Base Attack Speed 0.12 → 0.09
  • Defense per Level 1.7 → 2.0

Hart

Following some adjustments to Hart in previous patches, she still needs a slight touch.

  • Base Attack Speed 0.12 → 0.09
  • Flanger(E)
    • 3rd Dash Movement Range 4m → 3.6m

Hyunwoo

Hyunwoo needs just a touch more combat sustain.

  • Dogfight(P)
    • Stacks to Heal 55 → 50

Weapon

We have adjusted some weapons based on data we’ve gathered, such as item utilization.

Mount slicer is now a growth weapon in order to balance out its early and late game strengths.

Planned Improvements

Improving skills is no easy task. Smaller changes and simple improvements can be applied very quickly, but larger improvements and reworks can take up to 3-4 months. We try to focus on what we, and the community, believe are the most urgent. We’re working on the following things, but it may take some time for them to be fully fleshed out.

  • Change Sissela’s Free at Last(R) to hit only enemies in the same area or a certain range
  • Normal Attack reset when using Hyunwoo’s Bluff(W) (Auto attack cancel)
  • Weapon Skills – Axe, Hammer, Sniper Rifle, Dual Swords

Main Improvements

  • Wickeline’s algorithm has been improved.
    • She won’t ‘meander’ out of areas as easily.

    • Aggro gauge is now properly displayed.
    • Wickeline can now detect invisible characters when entering combat
  • The standard for grace points for Immortal/Titan tiers have been mitigated. Players in the Immortal/Titan tiers now get 3 grace points per game.
