Survivor’s Bane Updates

Developer’s Note: We’ve heard your feedback that the rewards provided for playing Survivor’s Bane didn’t feel rewarding enough, and that another option to exit Endless mode other than by dying was needed, and that several Skills lacked in strength when compared to their contemporaries. The following changes were made to directly address these feedback points, while injecting more fun and flexibility into the event. We hope you enjoy this iteration of Survivor’s Bane and we welcome any additional feedback you might have.

  • Rewards will now be based upon kill count instead of combat duration.
  • In Endless Mode, players will see a menu option at roughly 12, 17, 22, and 27 minutes in that provides the option to exit and claim their rewards or to continue playing. Enemies will be stronger if the player decides to continue.

A variety of Skills have been strengthened as well:

  • Ray of frost:
    • Level 2: Width increased from 30 to 50%. Damage increased by 30%.
    • Level 4: Width increased by 30% has become distance increased by 50%. Damage increased by 30%.
  • Bone Spear: Skill at Level 8 now consumes 2% of current Life instead of maximum Life. Damage increased by 100%.
  • Multishot: Damage and number of arrows increased by 30%.
  • Rain of Vengeance: When upgraded, damage increases by 30%.
  • Whirlwind: Range increase upgrade also increases damage by 30%.
  • Ground Stomp: Range increase upgrade also increases damage by 30%. Cooldown decreased from 24 to 16 seconds.
  • Arcane Torrent, Condemn, Deadly Reach Falling Sword, Swarm of Bats, Wave Strike: Range increase upgrade also increases damage by 30%.
  • Wave of Blood: Base damage increased by 20%. Range increase upgrade also increases damage by 30%.
  • Magic Missile: Cooldown decreased from 2 to 1.5 seconds.
  • Hammer of the Ancients: Base damage increased by 20%.

Adventurers can cull the unworthy in this updated version of Survivor’s Bane from February 23, 3 a.m.–March 1, 3 a.m. server time.

New PvP Mode: Tower War

The spirit of competition rings anew throughout Westmarch. Assemble your team of 8 warriors and head to the Battleground Captain for a new, limited time PvP mode: —Tower War.

The Tower War experience might feel familiar to some—two teams enter, but only one can capture and hold the map’s 5 Effigies long enough to awaken and slay the Scared Guardian, accruing the needed 1,500 points to secure victory along the way. You’ll experience the same action-packed gameplay found in an Accursed Tower PvP match, but with the added ease of access seen in PvP activities such as Battleground. Like Battleground, Tower War has rankings for you to climb—earning rewards like upgrade materials, Legendary items, and Normal Gems—on a leaderboard you can cement your name in.

Those looking to flaunt their martial prowess can compete in this arena of carnage from February 26, 10 a.m.—March 25, 10 p.m. server time. Tower War takes place from 10 a.m.–12 p.m., 2–4 p.m., and 8–10 p.m. server time each day of its run and you must be Level 55 or higher to play, so plan accordingly.

Returning Events

Alley of Blood

Quarreling forces threaten to desecrate hallowed grounds, marking a point in the conflict between the forces of Shadows and Immortals. Demolish opposing Sentry Towers and dismantle the enemy team’s base of operations by shattering their Crystal Heart. Imbue your adventurer with Specialist Skills for a tactical advantage, and guard and bolster your Champion’s Marks to claim the day. From February 23, 3a.m.—March 1, 3a.m. server time, fight alongside Sacred Guardians in the Alley of Blood.

Fire Before Darkness

There are few in Sanctuary capable enough to stand against the darkness and wager their life for the defenseless. But you, adventurer, have consigned your days to thinning out the ranks of the Burning Hells, ushering in safety where all hope was once lost. Your quest to serve the downtrodden grows in complexity—harness the fire within to contain ever spreading darkness.

From February 24 at 3:00 a.m.–March 2 at 2:59 a.m. server time, as you complete daily Fire Before Darkness tasks, you’ll receive various rewards for your heroics. Racking up enough completed tasks will also unlock milestone rewards for you—an ode to vanquishing countless demons.

All Clans on Deck

The armies of the Burning Hells are mustering their forces for a ploy, most assuredly of nefarious intent. You must rally your banner, adventurer—call upon your Clan for aid to beat back the tide of darkness! From March 2, 3 a.m.–March 9, 2:59 a.m. server time, Sanctuary will need All Clans on Deck.

Feature Updates

Jump Skills

We have made improvements to prevent jump abilities from being able to exit the map. This includes abilities such as Demon Hunter’s Daring Swing and Barbarian’s Leap.

Developer’s Note: We wanted to improve the readability of where these abilities can be used while also blocking areas of the map that shouldn’t be reached. This includes updates to collision everywhere so that these abilities work correctly with all Skills currently in the game.

Defend/Raid the Vault

We’re updating the Defend/Raid the Vault event to address two areas of improvement: Immortals had to wait too long to participate in the event, and we wanted to encourage PvP elements that push the Shadows through the entirety of the Vault more enticing.

  • Shadows and Immortals will no longer forfeit rewards for losing a match. Instead, the defeated team will receive reduced rewards compared to the winning team.
  • Chests are locked when the Immortals enter the match. The Immortals must be defeated to loot the chests. Players no longer drop anything they’re carrying from previous floors.
  • Once Shadows enter Floor 4, the alarm will now sound after 10 seconds instead of immediately.
  • The cooldown to enter Raid the Vault has been reduced from 10 to 3 minutes.
  • Raid the Vault can now be played 10 times a day instead of 5.
  • The portal for Shadows to progress to the next floor will now be easier to trigger.

Additionally, adjustments to the queue and Party systems have been made.

  • A second confirmation prompt will now appear when players attempt to cancel the queue for Defend the Vault.
  • Party leaders can no longer remove players after the Shadows enter the vault.


Previously, using the Class Change feature would erase all Loadouts from your previous class. Now, the Armory will save all Class Loadouts played on your account.


We’ve made a variety of small adjustments to the visual menus associated with Familiars to better help players navigate and click/tap buttons.

One specific change is that common traits will display a 0 value at the base level, and count upwards for each stack. This is to help players differentiate Advanced Traits from Common Traits and alert players that Advanced Traits can be stacked.
