Reworked version of the Witchcraft set is coming soon!
04 February 2016
Lords und Ladies!
While we reworked the "Witchcraft" set, we took the comments of our players into consideration that had given us their insight after our preview last month. Now we are ready to present you the new version, which should appear in the game with Patch 10.7.2.
As promised the talents of this set won’t need reagents for their usage anymore. The mechanics will be similar to the "Talents Foremen" set, although due to technical restrictions, its diversity is lower than the original "Talents Foremen" — While there are a lot of active talents in the "Witchcraft" set, there are less passive ones to ensure a similar freedom of choice to the "Talents Foremen" set. However, the following basic conditions are applied:
Compared to its original version, each of the active talents has become a little bit weaker. This is because these talents are now only limited by the cooldown. There is no need to plan the storing and the consumption of reagents anymore.
After the completely leveling up improvement the active talents, it will be stronger when compared to its original version. This is caused by the fact that for the purpose of improvement, the hero will have to sacrifice some necessary characteristics. Bonuses to the effects of the active talents will compensate this loss.
