The Slormancer: Mage Academy Update Part 2 Reworks Act 1; Introduces New Cataclysms

Mage Academy Update Part 2 Steam

The Slormancer is a fun 2D dungeon crawler, action RPG where you play as a Knight, Huntress, or Mage to fight hordes of enemies led by the titular character.

Recently, developers launched the Mage Academy Update Part 2, which reworks Act 1 and improves every aspect of it. It also brings seven brand new cataclysms.

The diversity of enemies that you can find in Act 1 has been greatly increased from five to 12. Monster composition and density have also been reworked to give you more interesting yet approachable fights.

Most of the content in The Slormancer is procedurally generated, meaning that you will always have a new experience in every playthrough. That said, larger maps have been downsized, making them easier to comb through. The devs added Exalted Breaches and Named Elites in Act 1 as well.

It is also worth noting that the level cap has been increased to 60. Furthermore, a new Ancestral Stone can be unlocked just by playing the game. This can be used to unlock 30 new Ancestral Skills in the fourth tier of the Ancestral Skill Tree, which includes Imbue skills and more.
