The hefty January 2023 Update for Ember Knights is now available on all platforms. Aside from the new content, this patch brings some balancing changes as well, particularly to a couple of notable relics.

The Infested Mind and Titan’s Wargear are relics in Ember Knights introduced in a previous update. They have been doing pretty well, so much so that these relics got nerfed in this update.

Infested Mind deals damage after you’ve applied five poison stacks on the enemy. It used to deal 80 damage, but in the January 2023 Update, it is down to just 40. This is pretty significant, considering that all poison stacks on the enemy are consumed in the process.

Additionally, Titan’s Wargear received a couple of changes in the way you get its bonus. Instead of getting a 1% permanent damage boost on each kill with your weapon, you now need to eliminate four enemies to receive the same benefit. However, the good news is that you’re no longer limited to using just your weapon, which means you can also spam your skills now to get the damage buff.
