Dauntless, developed by Phoenix Labs Inc., has released a new update. Update 1.8.1 introduced a new Omnicell that gradually sucks the life out of you in exchange for extra damage to your enemies. Balancing changes are expected as well.

New Omnicell: Revenant

For those who are new to the game, an Omnicell is a craftable gear that helps make your builds stronger. It has an active and passive ability, so you should create one that suits you.

That being said, there is a new Omnicell called the Revenant. Its active ability will transform you into a Revenant while also spawning a Void Orb. This orb will grant you a stack of Void Energy, which not only gives you a 4% damage boost but will extend the Revenant state by one second per stack as well.

Furthermore, every 100 HP drained from you will summon an Umbral Tendril that deals 700 Umbral damage. If the tendril hits a target, it will spawn an additional Void Orb.

Even though this Omnicell provides you with many benefits, it does have one huge drawback and that is a continuous HP drain while you’re in the Revenant state. This is where the passive ability comes in handy.

You will gain 2% lifesteal and each accumulated stack of Void Energy while you’re in that state heals you 125 HP per second for 10 seconds. However, bear in mind that you will only regain health when the transformation ends, so exercise caution.

The Revenant can be crafted using the Vengeful Hearts dropped by a new enemy called the Bloodshot Shrowd. They reside in the Shattered Isles and are generally stronger and more devious than their regular counterparts.
