  • The glow around the Rune-keeper attunement display now dissipates appropriately.
  • â+ Mending Verse Healingâ Legacy now benefits the heal over time as well as the initial heal.

  • Many tooltips have been made more readable.
  • Some damaging IA Legacies have been slightly increased in potency.
  • Attunement bonuses â All skills that were modified by attunement levels have had the modifications reduced or removed. Any such reductions were added to the base functionality of the skills.
    • Example: Scribeâs Spark used to deal +4% damage per Attunement step. It now deals only +2% per step, but deals +18% damage at all Attunements.

    • Winter-storm â Now has a 5% chance to stun foes suffering from Writ of Cold.
  • Wrath of fire â All skills deal more damage, based on induction length. All DoTâs deal additional damage on crit (making +Tactical Crit much more desirable to Fire-traited Rune-keepers). Set bonuses have been modified.
