Median XL 1.F9b --- the best and latest patch --- necromancer tree revamp --- balance changes
Posted by BrotherLaz on Feb 27th, 2010
And it has been for the past three weeks, but better late than never.
This patch features the following changes over 1.E9:
Good, bad, I'm the one with the crossbow
The necromancer skill tree was overhauled and improved - the hated defensive totems were eliminated to remove the need to teleport around everywhere. This freed up several skill slots, which were used to achieve complete separation of the melee and crossbow trees by introducing a number of new melee and crossbow skills.
Jai maha Kali
The amazon bloodwitch build was further improved with the Balefire skill that answers the most common issue with the build: no controllable way to lower one's life for Bacchanalia to kick in.
