Last Epoch is still in beta but developer Eleventh Hour Games continues to provide new content and balancing changes before the eventual release. That said, Update 0.8.3e adds a group of skill improvements and bug fixes.

Paladins have been buffed greatly thanks to the improved damage scaling of certain skills. For instance, Javelin’s Holy Trail now deals 25% more damage. Consecrated Ground’s damage has been buffed by 66% and it now scales with spell damage.

Aside from that, if you decide to get the Lone Watcher node on the Dread Shade tree, it will increase the duration of Dread Shade by 100%.

Some enemies have also been adjusted. Crystal Elementals deal 7% less damage and they now have a 20% delay before releasing projectiles when they spin. Emerald Nagasa and Scalebane Rogues deal less damage by 10% and 12%, respectively.

Because Last Epoch is still in beta, you can expect that some areas in the game are not yet polished. The good thing is that the devs are doing their best to fix them. For instance, a lot of player and enemy abilities that have missing sound effects have been corrected by this update.
