PATCH NOTES 0.36.0 – JULY 7th, 2021 – Edited

It’s time, ladies and gentlemen, for update 0.36.0. Let me, Aesop, be your guide through these patch notes. Nicky’s here, Black Rose Rozzi and Neon Huntress Nadine, we got a new tutorial, some new items, some new item effects, Nadja got a makeover, and MORE.

Let us begin.

Servers will be down for approximately 5 hours to apply the maintenance – July 7th 19:00 to July 8th 00:00 (PT).

Our entire Game Start Process is being structurally reorganized, so the maintenance will likely take longer than usual. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Patch Notes – Quick Look

New Character – Nicky

Nicky is ready to bring the stunt action to Lumia!

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

Short Tempered(Passive)

Nicky converts damage taken by other characters into Rage, up to 100. Rage can be stacked up to Max 500.

When her rage meter is full, she becomes Enraged. When Enraged, her normal attacks deal 10 / 30 / 50 extra normal attack damage and 10 / 30 / 50(+Attack Power 40%) skill damage in an area around her target.

Fury Jab!!(E) and Pure Rage Uppercut!!(R) can be used while Enraged.

When her rage meter is depleted, Nicky becomes Calm for 3 seconds, and will not convert damage taken into Rage.

Rage Depletion Amount: Out of Combat 4 5 per second / Enraged 5 per second

Slugfest(Q)

Nicky puts her full strength into a punch, slowing her by 20%.

Reactivate the skill to let loose, knocking back the first enemy hit and dealing 30/55/80/105/130(+Attack Power 40%) ~60/110/160/210/260(+Attack Power 80%) damage. Hitting an enemy decreases the cooldown of Slugfest(Q) by 50%.

Distance and damage dealt increase based on how long she charges.

After the punch, Nicky can land a Body Blow within 3 seconds.

Body Blow (Q2)

Deals 25/50/75/100/125(+Attack Power 100%) skill damage, and gains 100 Rage for each enemy hit.

Range : 2m ~ 6m

Body Blow Effect Radius: Cone shape 3m

Cooldown : 18/16/14/12/10s

SP Cost : 50/60/70/80/90

Guard & Reverse(W)

Nicky guards in the direction of the mouse cursor, reducing damage taken by 60/65/70/75/80% for 0.75 seconds, and becomes immune to debuffs and crowd control.

Successful Guards reduce the cooldown of Guard & Reverse by 50%, Enrages Nicky, and allows her to Reverse.

Reverse : Nicky rushes forward, dealing 20/40/60/80/100(+Attack Power 20%) damage to enemies and roots them for 1 second. Reverse will not activate if Nicky is in an immovable state.

Reverse Dash Range : 3.3m

Width : 2m

Cooldown : 18/17/16/15/14s

SP Cost : 100

Knockout Punch(E)

Knockout Punch : Nicky throws a knockout punch in front of her, dealing 60/110/160/210/260(+Attack Power 40%) damage and slowing enemies by 30% for 2 seconds.

Fury Jab!!(Enhanced): While Enraged, Nicky can use Fury Jab!!, dealing 90/165/240/315/390 (+Attack Power 40%) damage, slowing enemies by 30% for 2 seconds and stunning them for 1 second. Fury Jab!! does not have a cooldown and does not share a cooldown with Knockout Punch. Using Fury Jab!! will Calm Nicky.

Knockout Punch(E) and Fury Jab!!(Enhanced) can be used consecutively.

Range: Straight Line 5m * 2m

Cooldown: 14/12.5/11/9.5/8s

SP Cost : 100

Pure Rage Uppercut!!(R)

Nicky can only use Pure Rage Uppercut!! when Enraged. Using Pure Rage Uppercut!! will Calm Nicky.

Nicky dashes to the targeted enemy player, becoming unstoppable, and uppercuts them, dealing 150/250/350(+Attack Power 70%) damage and knocking them airborne for 1.1 seconds. Nicky knocks back other enemies in the way, dealing 75/125/175(+Attack Power 35%) damage.

Range : 5.5m

Cooldown : 100/90/80s

SP Cost : 120/100/80

System

Tutorial Improvements

The tutorial has been totally redesigned. We’ve made it a little easier for new players to get started, guiding them, and trying to make it more fun to get to know Eternal Return during the tutorial phase. 

  • The new tutorial will be led by Yuki and Hyejin, both with flashy ultimates. 
    • If you have not progressed through the original Jackie/Aya tutorials, the character rewards will change to Yuki and Hyejin.  If you already own the new reward characters, you’ll get 8,020 A-Coin.
  • There will be a new introduction cut-scene for new users who are launching Eternal Return for the first time. 
  • To help get new players focused, the tutorial order has been changed to start with the Battle and Controls and putting Plans and Looting in a later chapter. 
    • Chapter 1 – Experiment Site <Lumia Island> : This chapter contains the basic elements to survive Lumia Island. (Basic Controls, Crafting, Fighting, Surviving) 
    • Chapter 2 – Body Enhancement <Mastery and Skill Enhancement> : This chapter contains the elements to win battles by raising mastery levels and increasing skill levels. (Mastery Level, Skill Level, Weapon Skill, Collecting, Restricted Area) 
    • Chapter 3 – Equipment Enhancement <Saved Plans and Targeted Items> : The final chapter contains the most unique part of Eternal Return, ‘Crafting items and Equipment’. (Saved Plans, Targeted Items, Hyperloop, Air Supply) 
  • There will be side tutorials in the near future to address the remaining, more advanced, elements that were left out from the three chapters: Team modes (Duo/Squad), Resurrection, Wickeline, Final Restricted Area, Vision, Crafting Food, Crafting Traps, Force Core Guide, TAB key usage, Sound cues, Advanced Mastery Course, Advanced Saved Plan Course etc.

Character Selection Improvements 

Yeah, waiting to pick a character/weapon and then waiting again to pick an area was a total pain. Guess what? We redesigned it!

You’ll now be able to work out more strategy in the preparation phase. You can see other player characters, weapons, etc. It looks nicer.

It’s just better. So much better.

  • The game preparation process will be reduced by one step. Players will be able to select characters, weapons, and saved plans all at the same time. 
  • Character, weapon, and saved plans that you used in your last match will be saved and used again. If you do not make any changes, the match will begin with your same character/plan as the previous match.
  • If players leave/disconnect during the planning phase, the match will still begin if there are enough players left in the match.
    • If there is server problem, dodging, or teammates selecting the same characters when the timer ends, the team will be excluded from matching.
    • Minimum:
      • Solo – 15 players
      • Duos – 8 teams
      • Squads – 5 teams
  • We added a Sort by Character function and will display warnings when there are more than three of the same characters.
  • Unfortunately, it takes a little longer to get into Practice mode now due to these changes. We are planning to add an immediate start function to the practice mode in the future.

Scoreboard/Match Status (Tab) Improvements & Addition of Object Timers

Scoreboard(Tab) will now show a bunch more stuff, like the match status, timers, and map.

  • You can now check routes and items that are needed to be looted in one quick overlay.
  • (Object Timer) Shows when and where objectives (Tree of Life, Meteorite, Dr. Wickeline) will spawn.
    • The impact location for Meteorite will be displayed when 1 minute is left.
    • Displays the current location of Dr. Wickeline.
    • In the future, real-time locations of objects will also be displayed on the map.
  • You can always minimize the scoreboard to display similar to the previous version.

CCTV Lights

 I always feel like… somebody’s watching me.

  • CCTVs will glow green when activated by your team, and will glow red if activated by the enemy.
    • If activated by both sides, they will only glow red.
  • We’ll add a timer overlay in a future update.

Return of Dr. Nadja

The doctor is back from vacation! She looks… different.

  • We’ve finished the redrawing for Dr. Nadja, so she’ll replace Meiji in the victory/defeat screen.

Character Model Selection Improvements

We received some feedback regarding the feet of the character models. (No, not like that.)

The ‘clickable range’ around the feet/bottom parts of character models in game was too small, leading to misclicks and missed skills.

We’re widening the area a bit for a bit more of a familiar feeling and ease of use.

GeForce Now Support

Your Games. Your Devices. Play Anywhere, July 2nd

  • With a keyboard, mouse, and good network connection, you can play Eternal Return anywhere on low spec computers/laptops, MacOS PCs, TVs, and more.
  • For more information, check out the GeForce Now homepage.

Faster Cooking Time

Mommy’s in the kitchen, cooking up something good. This should make food a bit more accessible in the early game.

  • Uncommon Food : 1.5s → 1s
  • Rare Food : 3s → 2s
  • Epic Food : 4.5s → 3.5s

Healing Reduction

  • Healing Reduction (Ranged)
    • 30% for 4s → 35% for 4s.

Try it out! Quickly see the Cathy is 3 mastery levels up on you and run!

Character

Luke 

Dirty Work(E) was a big SP drain but didn’t really do much for the cost.

  • Dirty Work(E)  
    • SP Cost 70/85/100/115/130 -> 70/75/80/85/90 

Lenox 

We’re adjusting Lenox’s to be more aggressive early. Without any dashes, Lenox relies a bit more on mobility than most, but also benefits a lot more from it. We’re tuning down that mobility a tiny bit but compensating by giving more CC to Whiplash(E).

  • HP per Level 78 → 74 
  • Attack Power per Level 2.7 → 2.9 
  • Base Movement Speed 3.25 → 3.2 
  • Whiplash(E)  
    • Movement Speed Reduction 20/25/30/35/40% → 30/35/40/45/50% 

Leon

Leon is still splashing around and causing a bit too much damage.

  • Base Attack Power 33 → 29 

Rio 

Rio can poke away thanks to her high attack range – which is especially effective in team modes. We’re adjusting that a bit.

  • Hanare(W) Daikyu 
    • Cooldown reduced when hit 70% → 50% 

Magnus 

Nobody can stop that body’s speed. We’re toning down his durability in general but bumping up his base attack speed so that he succeeds with some more aggressive builds.

  • Base Attack Speed 0.14 → 0.16 
  • Tough Body(P) 
    • Defense Increase per 1% HP lost 0.2/0.6/1.0% → 0.2/0.45/0.7% 
  • Heavy Strike(E)  
    • Stun duration on wall hit 1.3s → 1.2s 

Bernice 

Bernice’s normal attack animation frames were adjusted, improving his overall feel, and adjusting his base attack speed accordingly. This should reduce situations where normal attacks might miss.

  • Normal Attack Delay 0.33 → 0.14 
  • Base Attack Speed 0.24 → 0.16 

Xiukai 

We need to put this big boy on a diet. Juggernaut Chef(P) now has a max stack cap and gives additional stats and features based on how much he cooks.

  • Juggernaut Chef(P) 
    • Max Hp per stack 7 → 3 
    • Max stacks 150 
    • Bonus stats depending on the number of stacks. 
      • 50 Stacks 
        • Defense +10 
      • 100 Stacks  
        • Attack Power +15 
      • 150 Stacks 
        • Max HP +150 
        • Burnt to a Crisp(R)  Extra “dish out fire” (6 times for 4s → 7 times for 4s)

 Sissela 

We’re reducing both risk and reward for Go Get ‘Em Wilson! (Q).

  • Go Get ‘Em Wilson!(Q)  
    • Damage upon arrival 60/90/120/150/180(+50% Attack Power) → 60/90/120/150/180(+40% Attack Power)
    • HP Consumption 50/60/70/80/90 → 55/60/65/70/75 

Silvia 

Silvia just needs a little touch to refuel more easily.

  • Lumia Grand Prix(P)  
    • Fuel gained when visiting a new area every 30s → Fuel gained when visiting a new area every 25s 

Aya 

Aya has been showing quite poorly in high tiers (excluding the skill amp sniper builds). We’re tuning up her base stats and adjusting some of her weapons to help.

  • Base Attack Speed 0.14 → 0.16 
  • Base HP 640 → 665 

Isol 

Isol has been showing high results due to his pure area control using traps, MOK Operational Mines, and high survivability. We’re increasing the cooldown for MOK Operational Mine(R) and giving more strength to EMP Drones for late-game area control. An adjustment to Camouflage(E) should also reduce his survivability.

  • Camouflage(E)  
    • Cooldown 22/19.5/17/14.5/12s →22/20/18/16/14s 
  • MOK Operational Mine(R)  
    • Cooldown 30/25/20s → 30/28/26s 

Alex

We’re changing Alex’s mechanics for the weapon swap play style, and we plan to implement a part of the changes first during this patch. In addition, we’re adjusting his CC focused play style revolving around Double Agent(E) due to its oppression in team modes.

  • Incursion(Melee Q)/Gauss Pistol(Ranged Q)
    • Original: Shared Max 3 Stacks (Attack Power Increase up to 12%)
    • Changed: Can now obtain Melee 2 stacks, Ranged 2 stacks separately (Max 4 Stacks, Attack Power Increase up to 16%)
  • Double Agent(Melee E)
    • Taunt Duration 1.2s → 1s

William 

William’s warmed up, so he’s ready to be a starter. We’re also adjusting Fastball(Q) to not be too strong with his changes.

  • A-Coin Cost reduced 
    • (9,900 → 8,020) 
  • Base Defense 20 → 24 
  • HP per Level 61 → 65 
  • Movement Speed 3.05 → 3.1 
  • No Hitter(P)  
    • Stack Duration 12s → 15s 
  • Fastball(Q)  
    • Extra Attack Speed 20/25/30/35/40% → 10/15/20/25/30% 
  • Windup(W) 
    •  Cooldown 20/18/16/14/12s → 18/16.5/15/13.5/12s 

Yuki 

Yuki has been showing low average kills regardless of his weapon or tier.

  • Perfect Fit (P)  
    • Extra damage 20/35/50 → 25/40/55 

Eleven 

Eleven is not doing great anywhere. We’re giving her a bit more love and giving her a damage reduction when she taunts enemies.

  • Base Defense 26 → 29 
  • SP Regen per Level 0.04 → 0.07 
  • Eleven Set  
    • Max Stacks 5 → 6 
    • HP Recovery 950 → 980 
  • Burger Queen(Q)  
    • Movement Speed Reduced for 2s 25/35/45/55/65% → 50/55/60/65/70% 
    • Enhanced Hammer Damage +48/52/56/60/64% → +48/54/60/66/72%
  • (NEW) Food For Thought(W)  
    • (Max Charged) Reduces Damage Taken by 15 % for 2s. 
  • On Air!(E) 
    • Drops faster when charged for a short time. 

Zahir 

Zahir is whooshing out early, so we’re touching up his early game survivability.

  • Base Defense 20 → 23 

Jackie 

Jackie is showing a very high average placements due to her ability to pick fights with high mobility. She’s always so fast.

  • Adrenaline Burst(W)  
    • Movement speed increase 5/8/11/14/17% → 5/7/9/11/13% 

Cathy 

Cathy’s surgeries are going well in every tier. We’re just toning her down a tiny bit.

  • Under the Knife(P)  
    • Additional Critical Strike Damage 10/25/40% → 10/20/30% 

Chiara 

There’s a big difference in average placements & win rate between Chiara’s Tank build and Crit build. We’re adjusting Attack Power ratios and base stats to tone down the Tank builds and give some strength to aggressive builds.

  • Depraved Prayer(W)  
    • Damage 60/100/140/180/220(+Attack Power 60%) → 40/80/120/160/200(+Attack Power 80%)  
    • Shield HP 60/100/140/180/220(+Attack Power 85%) → 40/80/120/160/200(+Attack Power 105%)  

Hart 

Following adjustments to Delay(Q), my Hart was kinda broken (in a bad way). We’re giving her an overall stat boost to help her out.

  • Base Attack Power 22 → 24 
  • Delay – Evolved(Q) 
    • Movement Speed Decrease 15~30%/25~50% → 15~35%/25~60%

Armor

Too many characters have been making it to the late-game, to help lower the effectiveness of just running away we’re adjusting the survivability of characters with high average placement, adjusting Defense Mastery, and reducing the effectiveness of Defense items in general.

Two Unique effects have been newly added. (Swift Strides, Thorns)

Damage coming from most items is a new type of damage, Cellular Damage.

  • Cellular Damage is reduced by Defense and is not affected by Critical Strike, Skill Amplification, Normal Attack Amplification, or Extra Skill/Normal Attack Damage.
