Certain uniques have received some balancing changes in Last Epoch’s latest update, especially the Fiery Dragon Shoes and the Ravenous Void. Beta Patch 0.8.5b also brings adjustments to certain skills.

The Fiery Dragon Shoes is a unique pair of greaves that casts a fire trail when you are critically hit. That said, the chance for it to trigger has been reduced to just 25% to 35% (from 40% to 50%). However, it is still high considering that it now grants a 5% to 15% increased chance to receive a critical blow.

Now, the Ravenous Void is an interesting one. This unique pair of gloves grants a Void Barrier every five seconds that stacks up to three times. Void Barriers, for those who don’t know, grant 5% less damage taken per stack.

Anyway, the stacks of Void Barriers are now doubled for three seconds when you drop below your Endurance Threshold. After which, all stacks are converted to Mimic Feast - a damaging ailment that disables health leech and Void Barrier generation. This ailment lasts for 15 seconds but can be cleansed. It is worth noting that the Ravenous Void no longer induces Time Rot because it has been effectively replaced by Mimic Feast.
