Обновление В25 уже установлено, а это значит, что перед нами открывается новый контент и мы сможем получить новые ощущения от этой интересной игры. В данном обновлении появилось довольно много всего: изменилась механика дотов, появилась система фракций - самая главная часть этого обновления, было добавлено много новых единиц обмундирования и это еще далеко не все. О самых значимых изменениях вы можете почитать в наших статьях, которые были опубликованы ранее на главной. Единственное но, которое внесло немного горечи - это отсутствие 3 главы 3го акта, которая будет доступна лишь с обновлением В26. релиз данной обновы запланирован на середину июля.
[Major New Features]
The Faction system has been fully implemented. You may now visit Faction Quartermasters to purchase rewards earned for gaining reputation. Enemies will now spawn additional foes based on reputation.
Factions now offer Bounties via their respective Bounty Tables to earn additional rewards and reputation. 145 Bounty Quests have been added to the game.
A new set of items has been added: Writs and Mandates. You can use these items, purchased from Quartermasters, to boost reputation gain on the next difficulty and with your alternate characters.
Each hostile faction now has a Nemesis that can spawn to hunt you down in that faction's territory, after you reach Nemesis reputation status. Nemesis spawns are rare ultra-bosses with powerful abilities, but also some of the best loot, including a higher chance of rare Blueprints. Additional Nemesis spawns will be introduced in the future.
Updated textures and meshes on several common armor items
Updated common armor bitmaps
Updated Rock textures
Updated several Terrain textures
Attack spells (ex. Panetti's Replicating Missile and Dreeg's Evil Eye) will now cycle between three different cast animations rather than playing the same one over and over
New player character self-buffing animation for all weapon types
New Soldier "Warcry" animation for all weapon types
New Soldier "Field Command" animation for all weapon types
New Occultist "Doombolt" animation for all weapon types
New Arcanist "Iskandra's Elemental Exchange" animation for all weapon types
Attacking with dual wielding pistols now feels less sluggish. Default attack animations hit sooner and can be interrupted much sooner alleviating a feeling of being rooted while fighting.
Fixed a crash for the host when a player tried salvaging items or components
Fixed incorrect faction bonuses when in a Multiplayer game
Certain factions will no longer allow positive reputation gain after permanently siding against them
Experience bonus messages from Lore Notes are no longer hidden behind the Character Window
Shield damage no longer shows up in the main damage values on the Character Sheet (it still shows up on the rollover tooltip)
Pet bonuses on items merged into one section
Fixed an issue with skill cooldown notifications playing at inappropriate time intervals
Personal and Transfer stash now have the same item highlighting as your inventory
Right-clicking a Component/Augment will now highlight all items that can accept that Component/Augment in your inventory and stash
Can now craft multiple items in a row without having to remove the previously crafted item from the Crafting Window
Pet bonuses on items now have stat variation, just like all other item attributes
The inventor has a new ability to remove Augments in addition to any Soulbound status that the Augment applied
Fixed being able to shift-click soulbound items into the shared stash from the player's equipped items
Soulbound Augments can no longer be applied to items in the transfer stash
Common and Champion monsters no longer stop giving reputation past a certain Reputation tier. Instead, they now give a reduced amount as you approach Nemesis/Revered status.
Increased the reputation change from killing bosses to -50 from -25. This makes bosses more valuable for reaching Nemesis status.
Many bosses and mini-bosses now instantly regain some health when killing a player on Veteran Difficulty
Pierce Ratio on weapons has been redesigned. The engine now tallies up all of the physical damage you would deal on an attack (before % Damage bonuses) and then converts a portion of that to Pierce damage. The values are then modified by % Damage bonuses. Before, the Pierce ratio only accounted for the weapon's base damage.
Probability to Hit Formula has been adjusted to reduce the impact of highly disparate Offensive vs. Defensive Ability values. This will allow characters with lower Defensive Ability values to survive better.
Lore notes have been reorganized into new categories
Updated lore notes for Origin of the Slith, pages 1-3
Breakable Shelves and Cabinets are now easier to target

[Class & Skills]
Cooldown lowered on many skills - adjustments to damage or other stats on some skills as necessary based on the level of cooldown change
Damage over time effects (ex. Poison, Bleed, etc.) now stack with diminishing returns when applied through unique sources. For example: If you apply Poison through Eye of Dreeg, then hit an enemy with a poisoned weapon, both will now deal damage, but the weaker DoT will be reduced. The stacking ratio is as follows: 100%, 50%, 25%, 12.5%, 0% with the most powerful DoT dealing 100% damage and each subsequently weaker DoT dealing less.
Counterstrike: activation chance now scales up to 20% at rank 16 (25% at max ultimate rank), but the activation now has a 1s cooldown
Overguard: reworked to be more oriented around the shield, with improved shield bonuses and scaling % Health Regeneration that synergizes with Menhir's Will
Veterancy: Chance to Block replaced by Shield Recovery Time, since it is probably the more powerful shield bonus that you would want to have "on" all the time. Allowed for Block Chance to be increased by Overguard instead.
Fighting Spirit: lost its % Health Regeneration to Overguard. This seemed more sensible since Fighting spirit is already a powerful offensive skill and having the % Health Regeneration on an active skill will allow players to time it with the flat Regeneration bonus on Menhir's Will if they so choose.
Blackwater Cocktail: reduced energy cost scaling with rank and increased radius scaling
Demon Fire: increased % Burn damage scaling with rank
Agonizing Flames: increased % Chaos and % Fire damage scaling with rank
Quick Jacks: energy cost reduction lowered
Dual Blades: flat Pierce damage reduced
Amarasta's Quick Cut: increased % Pierce damage bonus and reduced flat Pierce damage. Percent weapon damage now scales up to 100% at max rank.
Nidalla's Hidden Hand: added % Poison and % Acid damage bonuses
Shadow Strike: % Weapon damage adjusted to scale more with rank with a lower starting value. Reduced the flat Pierce damage, but added a % Pierce damage bonus.
Nidalla's Justifiable Ends: added % Poison damage bonus
Pneumatic Burst: Heal now starts at 10%, but scales more rapidly to catch up to original values by rank 8
Mirror of Ereoctes: slightly increased % reflect scaling at rank 8 and above, scaling up to 325% at max ultimate rank
Wrath of Agrivix: this Transmuter now adds a 100% chance to Knockdown for 1.5s, but the % Total damage bonus has been reduced to 150% and the cooldown is increased to 6s
Elemental Exchange: active energy cost reduced and Elemental damage slightly increased
