Fortune City Stimulus
By decree of Magistrate Baelius, we have been authorized to stimulate the Delta V economy with a much-need stimulus! If you logged into EpicDuel since January 1, 2020, you will have received 750 Varium after the most recent update! There's nothing else you need to do to receive it. No code to redeem. No form you fill out. You just get it in your inventory to do as you choose with it. Unfortunately, if you just learned about this now and haven't logged on in 2 years, you're out of luck for now. However, there may be additional opportunities to claim bonus Varium in the future. Those opportunities will be rare, but staying current with your accounts and EpicDuel news will make sure you're aware of such promotions.
A new balance update has arrive with a major overhaul to Cyber Hunter class.
Plasma Rain: improves with Support instead of Dexterity
Proton Cannon: reduce cool down to 2 turns from 3.
Pulse punch: added ability to place a random skill into cooldown
Memory Leak: convert 70% damage of initial strike to energy
Plasma Grenade: increase debuff to 35% from 25%; improve with Technology instead of Support, increase to improve with every .4 technology instead of every .32
Adaptive Offense: adjust damage to match Artillery Strike; Move to improve with Dexterity instead of Technology
NeuroToxin: increase heal reduction to 30% from 20%; increase scaling to improve with every 3.5 support instead of 3
Nanotech Shield: increases defense based on damage reduction %
Neural Scythe: improves with Support instead of Technology; improves with every .4 Support; improves by 1 Adaptive Damage per 0.3 levels above 20; weakens by 1 Adaptive Damage per 0.8 levels. By adaptive damage we mean the physical weapon damage type. This may be unclear to new players so we are thinking of a new way to phrase this.
Level 1: 160 Adaptive Damage
Level 2: 180 Adaptive Damage
Level 3: 200 Adaptive Damage
Level 4: 220 Adaptive Damage
Level 5: 240 Adaptive Damage
Level 6: 260 Adaptive Damage
Level 7: 280 Adaptive Damage
Level 8: 300 Adaptive Damage
Level 9: 320 Adaptive Damage
Level 10: 340 Adaptive Damage
Hopefully these changes will make an impact of Cyber Hunter win ratios and class population to make them more competative and effective against a variety of opposing builds.
