Darkfall: New Dawn puts the finishing touches on its magic schools
Fun fact: Did you know that Darkfall: New Dawn has a skill called “eye rot?” Isn’t that all you will be thinking about for the rest of today? It’s an infectious fact!
Now that our eyes are twitching, we can try to distract ourselves with the changes to New Dawn’s magical schools with Update 2.1. “The theme of this patch is finishing up on the mechanical changes for magic,” the team said. “Our general goal with magic is to have schools that play differently, as bundles of spells.”
As such, the developers have made adjustments to arcane magic, necromancy, and certain signature spells like earthquake, healing chant, come hither, and wall of force. Following this magic-centric patch, the devs will review some of the game’s melee weapons and finish equalizing the magic and physical progression paths. “We are now in the interface phase, still quite a bit to do,” they said.
