Developer SouthPAW Games released Patch 1.7.3 for its 2D action roguelite Skul: The Hero Slayer recently and introduced three new items.

The first item is the Golden Wand. Every 100 Gold you spend increases your magic attack by 1%, which stacks up to 70%!

The second one is called the Prohibited Book. This item is interesting because it changes into the Demonomicon after you’ve obtained 500 pages of the book. You get a page every time you deal damage to an enemy with the skill.

And finally, the Grace of Leonia is a new item that grants a 15-HP barrier every 30 seconds. While the barrier is active, your magic attack is increased by 50%. Furthermore, a barrage of orbs shoots out and attacks nearby enemies every five seconds, dealing magic damage.

Patch 1.7.3 buffed some existing items as well. For example, the Invisible Knife in Skul: The Hero Slayer has gotten better with this weapon now having a critical strike chance of 10% and a higher magical damage. Equip this on a Skull that has innately fast attack speed like the King for maximum effect!
