  • Planar Vortex: We’ve doubled the duration of the buff to 8 seconds while increasing weapon damager per second from 50% to 100%
  • Rift Disturbance: We’ve changed this back to its original form, it no longer generates a combo point
  • Shadow Assault & Blitz: Each now awards two combo points.
Quality of Life More improvements for Riftstalkers and some for Bladedancer, we’ve made managing your short duration buffs a little easier - Riftstalker
  • Guarded Steel & Annihilate: Duration is now changed – 1 Combo Point: 20 seconds; 2 Combo Points: 30 Seconds; 3 Combo Points: 40 seconds; 4 Combo Points: 50 Seconds; 5 Combo Points: 60 Seconds.

Area of Effect From your feedback and our internal testing we’ve seen some clear, competitive AOE builds surface but we made a few additional tweaks to bring it home - Saboteur
