Update 26.2 Release Notes


Here are the Release Notes for Update 26.2, released on Wednesday, June 3rd.


News and Notes:


Classes

  • Burglar
    • Burglars are currently too survivable and powerful with their boss debuffs, so the following changes are being made:
      • Reveal Weakness has had its based reduced from 4% to 3%. Bonuses from traits and Legendary Item legacies has been reduced by one half. Ratings debuffs remain unchanged. This vulnerability effect was simply too powerful in raids.
      • Provoke has had its cooldown increased from six to eight seconds, making it harder for Burglars to maintain a full stack of Roll With It.
      • Knives Out damage reduction has been reduced from 85% to 70%, as this rendered Burglars nearly invulnerable with skill bonuses.

  • Captains
    • Revealing Mark will no longer generate aggro.

  • Champions
    • Champion survivability has been a bit on the low end, so they have received a few buffs and utility improvements.
    • Glory now reduces all damage, not just melee damage.
    • Champion's Challenge now puts a short but powerful damage debuff on the target (-30%, 5 seconds) to help a skilled Champion mitigate large called attacks.
    • The blue line Vitality trait is now called "Stalwart Blade" and grants a maximum 5% parry chance bonus in addition to its vitality benefit.
    • Sprint cooldown has been reduced from 5 seconds to 2 seconds, and down to 60 seconds with buffs.

  • Minstrel
    • Timeless Echoes' Remmorchant set bonus healing is now properly tied to the skill toggle.

  • Rune-keeper
    • Ceaseless Argument's cooldown has been reduced from 3 seconds to 2 seconds.
    • The change to Epic Conclusion/Closing Remark's dispel effect has been reverted.

  • The Deed: The Line of Kings: The Plaque for King Aldamir has been returned to its proper place.
