The Depths

New Delve Biome for Runic Depths Vault

Patch Notes

NEW DELVE BIOME and DELVES

NEW DELVE BIOME

  • For Characters of sufficient strength & swimming skill, “The Depths” await, a flooded Delve biome providing additional challenges and regards!
  • “The Depths” is only accessible via Matchmakers, the creation of which Saltwater Sam & his crew have been studying! You can find them at OUTPOSTS in all biomes in Long Shade Difficulty (15) worlds!
  • Unlike standard Matchmakers, every floor/tier with be “The Depths,” with the new bosses appearing every 3rd floor. Instead of a Shadowy Soul Vault, every 3rd floor will spawn a Runic Depths Vault—which can be opened using keys crafted from Saltwater Sam’s Depth’s Workbench.
  • The Depths matchmaker will only take you up to 12 floors deep, allowing 4 bosses/vaults total.

DELVES

  • A new “Under Pressure” debuff–periodically pulsing damage, and reducing Health Regeneration–has been added to Delves
  • This effect first appears at Depth 160 (150 for Challenge delves), and increases in strength as your Depth increases (with periodic “jumps” in power after 10 floors)

This effect is not meant to  “stop players in their tracks” at any specific Depth, but it is intended to make “pushing the hardest depths” require more balance between health & damage stats than is currently required.

Runic Depths Vault

The reward at the end of every 3rd floor in The Depths delves. Replaces Shadowy Soul Vaults.
