Outriders Worldslayer received quite an important update recently. The patch brought a plethora of balancing changes to the game, with almost every class being touched upon.

The patch reduced the level-up requirements for each Apocalypse Tier starting Tier 20 by 10%. A 0.5-second cooldown has been added to Earthen Shell for Devastator. The bullet acceleration for Devastator has been increased to 60 from the previous 33. Technomancer’s Twin Reaper echo damage is increased by 35%.

A small portion of the patch notes is mentioned below.

General Balance Changes
  • Resources & Anomaly Extract
    • The amount of Anomaly Extract gained has generally been improved and the amount of Anomaly Extract gained in Tarya Gratar's Troves has been increased by 500%.
    • A full run-through of Tarya Gratar (including Troves) should now net out at around double the amount of Anomaly Extract earned per run when compared to before this patch.
    • Boss-rushing the final Arbiter will net slightly more Anomaly Extract than before, but this will not be the most efficient route for Anomaly Extract farming.
  • Crafting and Upgrading
    • Starting at Item Level 50, the Anomaly Extract costs required to upgrade gear has been reduced by 5%.
    • Between the two above changes (Increased Gains and reduced Costs), players should be able to support upgrading two full sets of gear per Apocalypse Tier level. This should enable a greater amount of experimentations and limit the need to hoard resources in order to be able to upgrade the currently equipped set.
  • Apocalypse Gear Drop Rates
    • Starting at Apocalypse Tier 11, the "Increased chance for Apocalypse variant gear" has been increased for each Apocalypse Tier.
  • Expeditions
    • Expedition Rewards have been increased in order to make Expeditions feel more viable alongside Tarya Gratar. The "Loot Gained per X Time Investment" should now feel quite similar between Expeditions and Tarya Gratar.
    • Players should now receive a greater amount of Epic and Legendary Items and comparatively fewer Rare items in Expeditions.
    • Anomaly Extract farming should now also feel much more viable to do in Expeditions.
