Patch Fix annoying snakes and Nerf popular class
This is especially good: The grave vipers in the halls of Vaught (Nihlathaks Temple, Act v), now cause poisoned physical damage with their clouds. This change ensures relief for many players.
The reactions range from: Can not wait for my servants to die anymore to: Is the agony finally over? Previously, there was another mistake with vipers, through which they have caused much more damage than planned.
Why was that important? The halls are a popular farm spot for magical objects. However, vipers have added all players as they could simply destroy characters as servants and mercenaries.
By harming too often, almost everything has been destroyed by the clouds. In addition, physical damage can only be reduced to up to 50%. Gift damage can be reduced to up to 95%.

You can now also enable another skill bar with Quick-Cast via the settings. Already to release there was a greater discussion about the hotkeys in the game. This concerns especially PC players. On console, you can now set a higher level of difficulty in offline mode.
