Predecessor New Update Reworks Demon Edge

Patch v0.7.2 Omeda Studios

In their continued effort to improve time-to-kill (TTK) in Predecessor, the developers made substantial changes to certain items - one of them is the Demon Edge.

The Demon Edge is a tier-three item that got reworked in Patch v0.7.2. It used to have three different passive effects. If your health was above 40%, you gain a 15% boost to your bonus physical power. On the other hand, if your HP was below 40%, you gain 10% omnivamp. And lastly, Demon Edge previously empowered your physical attacks to ignore your target's physical armor by 35% (before penetration).

In the recent update, however, Demon Edge has been changed in that it now works as an anti-shield item for assassins. It has a new passive where damaging a shielded target deals 30% of the remaining shield as bonus physical damage and grants you a 20% movement speed boost for two seconds.

Aside from the new passive, the Demon Edge now grants 50 physical power and 12 physical penetration. This item is best used for shredding enemy shields, allowing you to counter opposing compositions that maximize shield use.

The Demon Edge is not the only item that received adjustments in Patch v0.7.2. Here's a list of the other items tweaked in this update:
