    • Enhanced Ambitious Assassin

        • Solar: +35 reload speed and +20 airborne effectiveness.

    • Borealis
      • Breaking a matched shield now refills the magazine from reserves and allows your next five shots to deal bonus damage.
      • Not deactivated by reloading anymore.
    • Jade Rabbit
      • New perk design:
      • Quickly landing three crits returns one round to the magazine, and allows your next body shot to land for increased damage.
      • Can stack up to three increased damage body shots.
      • Resets if you reload.
    • With the addition of the Full Auto setting, we've replaced the Full Auto Trigger System perk with something else on each weapon that had it.
      • No Time to Explain
        • Replaced with Feeding Frenzy.
      • Traveler's Chosen
        • Catalyst perk replaced with Surplus.
        • It still has Osmosis.
      • Vigilance Wing
        • Catalyst perk replaced with Ensemble.
    • Dead Man's Tale

    • The Prospector

        • Increased damage at the outer edge damage radius from 0% to 20%.
        • Reduced ammo cost to activate from 6 to 4.

      • Decreased charge time on hit no longer resets on kill or on reload and now works on a five-second timer.
      • The timer is refreshed when landing hits.
    • Rat King
      • Radius required to activate its perk increased from 15m to 20m.
    • Legend of Acrius
      • Removed movement penalties.
    • Bastion
      • Reduced spread angle by 6%.
      • This halves the effect of Season 14's spread angle increase.
    • Quicksilver Storm
      • Increased PvP maximum grenade damage from 80 to 120. Increased explosion radius from 3m to 4m.
      • Switched rocket damage from Arc to Kinetic.
    • Coldheart
      • Reduced cooldown on Ionic Trace generation from 3.5s to 2s.

ABILITIES

  • Solar subclasses
    • Gunslinger
      • Knock 'Em Down
        • Golden Gun
          • Now provides 15% bonus damage resistance to Deadshot Golden Gun, and no longer provides bonus duration.
          • No longer provides 15% bonus damage resistance to Marksman Golden Gun.
          • Note: After seeing this play out in the wild, it was clear that there wasn't enough differentiation between Deadshot and Marksman Golden Gun, primarily due to Deadshot benefiting significantly more from Knock 'Em Down's bonus duration (as seen by the number of Seventh, Eighth, and Fourteenth Column videos in recent months). We want to push these two enhanced Supers further apart and solidify Marksman Golden Gun as the option where you can take your time to aim your shot from range, and Deadshot as a more in-the-fray option. We believed that doubling up on bonuses and the bonus duration was confusing these identities and not giving them enough space to breathe.
        • Blade Barrage
          • Blade Barrage bonus projectiles reduced from 5 to 3 per group. It now releases a total of 20 knives (+43% from base), down from 24.
          • Note: While it was refreshing to see Blade Barrage topping the charts as a change of pace, the stacking bonuses from Patch 6.1.0's PvE damage increase and consistency improvements and Knock 'Em Down's bonus knives, in combination with other buildcrafting elements, pushed the burst damage of Blade Barrage above where we were comfortable with burst Supers being. We believe this will still be a strong option for burst damage without being as much of an outlier.
    • Dawnblade
      • Celestial Fire
        • Increased close-range melee damage from 90 to 100, so players using Celestial Fire and the auto-melee option are no longer disadvantaged in close-range melee fights.
    • General
      • Ember of Torches
        • Radiant base duration reduced from 10s to 8s.
        • Now applies a -10 Discipline penalty while equipped.
      • Ember of Solace
        • Now provides a 50% bonus to Radiant duration, rather than a flat 5s.
        • Note: this is consistent with its behavior with Restoration.
      • Restoration
        • Restoration x1 base healing rate reduced from 25 to 20 health per second (40 health per second in PvE activities, down from 50).
        • Restoration x2 base healing rate reduced from 40 to 32.5 health per second (65 health per second in PvE activities, down from 80).
        • No longer stacks with Healing Rift's healing. The stronger heal-over-time value is prioritized and will stop the weaker heal-over-time from taking effect.
  • Void subclasses
    • Nightstalker
      • Shadowshot: Deadfall
        • Increased tether anchor lifetime when triggered from 8s to 12s.
      • Shadowshot: Moebius Quiver
        • Reduced tether anchor lifetime when triggered from 8s to 6s.
    • Sentinel
      • Shield Bash
        • Improved reliability of the suppression application when hitting the primary target under poor network conditions.
    • Voidwalker
      • Nova Bomb: Vortex
        • Increased initial projectile speed by 21%.
        • Increased radius of the inward pull impulse on impact by ~17%.
        • Increased strength of the inward pull impulse on impact by ~20%.
        • Note: Vortex Nova Bomb has felt like a niche option for a while now, and we want to improve its viability relative to Cataclysm Nova Bomb by doubling down on its unique pull impulse. We also felt like it was too easy to undershoot targets at close-to-mid ranges. Increasing the initial projectile speed should help players catch their intended target more reliably.
    • General
      • Void Overshield
        • Fixed an issue where the Void overshield was only providing 25% PvE-only damage resistance to the overshield, rather than the intended 50%.
  • Stasis Subclasses
    • Revenant
      • Winter's Shroud
        • Fragment slots increased from 1 to 2.
    • Shadebinder
      • Glacial Harvest
        • Reduced cooldown on Stasis shard creation (per 6 shards) from 15sto 10s.
    • Behemoth
      • Cryoclasm
        • Fragment slots increased from 1 to 2.
    • Stasis Grenades
      • Duskfield Grenade
        • Increased slow stack application rate on players by 13%.
      • Coldsnap Grenade
        • Coldsnap can now track targets for 0.5s after creation, rather than immediately finding a target and traveling toward their last known position.
        • Note: Base Coldsnap grenade was not meeting our reliability bar and was too frequently getting stuck in the environment or missing targets that had not significantly changed position. Our goal with this change is to increase Coldsnap's reliability without compromising the ability for potential victims to relocate and avoid being frozen.
    • General
      • Stasis Slow
        • Increased movement speed penalty while Slowed by 10%.
      • Whisper of Rending
        • Now provides bonus damage to Stasis crystals and frozen targets for all Primary weapons, rather than just Kinetic Primary weapons.
  • Arc Subclasses
    • Arcstrider
      • Tempest Strike
        • Increased Tempest Strike damage against PvE combatants by 30%.
    • Striker
      • Ballistic Slam
        • Increased Ballistic Slam damage against PvE combatants by 16%.
      • Touch of Thunder
        • Storm Grenade
          • Decreased Touch of Thunder's Storm Grenade base roaming duration from 5s to 4s.
          • Decreased the bonus lifetime granted by Spark of Magnitude to the enhanced Storm Grenade from 2s to 1.5s.
          • Fixed an issue that caused the enhanced Storm Grenade's effective area to be difficult to understand in PvP.
            • Previously, the friend-or-foe ring surrounding a Touch of Thunder Storm Grenade's lightning strikes blinked on and off between strikes, and there was no indication within the cloud itself of whether or not it was friend or foe. Now, the ring persists through the life of the storm, and enemy storms have an additional VFX layer in the cloud itself to help differentiate them from those created by allies.
    • Stormcaller
      • Ball Lightning
        • Increased travel distance from 27.5m to 35m.
      • Chain Lightning
        • Increased damage against PvE combatants by 50%.
      • Arc Soul
        • Increased base damage vs. PvE combatants from 35 to 60.
        • Note: With the release of Season 18, we increased Arc Soul's base damage in PvE from 25 to 35, but it's clear that wasn't enough to help them feel particularly useful in very high-end PvE activities, so we decided to swing harder this time. We'll be keeping an eye on this one as the Season progresses to make sure these are landing where we'd hoped.
    • Chaos Reach
      • Reduced base cooldown from 9:16 to 7:35.

POWER AND PROGRESSION

    • Destination materials removed:

      • Microphasic Datalattice – Nessus

MATERIAL EXCHANGE

  • Rahool will no longer sell destination materials.
  • Players who have destination materials on their account will still be able to exchange them for Glimmer at Rahool, although at a reduced rate compared to what is currently offered.
    • Current exchange rate: 20 destination materials = 10,000 Glimmer.
    • Rahool will provide context sensitive offers that will display depending on how many of each material players have in their inventory, offers will be invisible to players who do not have any destination materials.
      • New exchange rate: 20 destination materials = 5,000 Glimmer.
        • Offers are Only visible if players have more than 20 of the associated material in their inventory.
      • New exchange rate: 1 destination material = 250 Glimmer.
        • Offers are only visible if players have less than 20, but more than zero of the associated material in their inventory.
    • This will be the only use for destination materials beyond Season 19.
    • These offers are unavailable for previously deprecated materials such as Etheric Spirals, Alkane Dust, Phaseglass Needles, or Seraphite.
      • We don’t want players to feel bad if they have thrown these resources away.
  • Rahool now allows players to exchange the following materials for Glimmer:
    • Dark Fragment
    • Phantasmal Fragment
    • Herealways Piece
