    There are some late game encounters and enemies that have been tweaked to add difficulty and some resistances, along with an overhaul of smaller changes and improvements to many of the spells.

    The update list below is a bit long, but besides the gameplay/quest updates, most of it is spell tweaks we’ve been wanting to fix up. Many of these have just had updated language in their descriptions to be more accurate to their output ( like removing proc/duration for spells that end when casting stops), while others had various stability changes or tweaks to their math. You shouldn’t see anything that abruptly changes builds, but improvements overall.

    * Note: The Balance section has some spoilers of enemies in the game

    * GOG-update should be up in a few days

    Awesome to see a much needed update to the spells. Can’t wait to try it out, especially with the math updates. Just hope GOG gets on it quickly!
