Soulstone Survivors Developer Addresses Major Issues in the Path of Ascension Update

Hotfix v0.10.034f Game Smithing Limited

Earlier this month, Game Smithing Limited launched the Path of Ascension update for Soulstone Survivors. While it certainly brought tons of new content, it also introduced some unforeseen bugs that may have hampered one's enjoyment of the game. That's the reason why the company deployed Hotfix v0.10.034f recently to address some of the more pressing issues.

First of all, summoned units in Soulstone Survivors should now correctly benefit from runes. Now, because summoned units properly inherit all of the player's attributes, they no longer benefit from the hidden damage bonus based on the curse intensity. The company didn't take away everything, though. Summoned units can still receive defensive benefits based on curse intensity. This is good as it helps the weaker ones, like Plague Rats and Putrid Hounds, survive longer on higher difficulty.

To further improve their survivability, the company adjusted the enemy AI. Now, enemies no longer target most of the player's summoned units directly, except for Chaos Golem, Battle Moose, and Cave Bear.

Here are the other changes in Hotfix v0.10.034f:


  • Cobra Totems damage increased from 150 to 300
  • Frenzied Bunnies negative effect power increased by approximately 25%
  • Volcano Eruption damage increased from 150 to 200
  • Summon Plague Rats Rot damage increased from 600 to 1,000
  • Shockwave Totem damage increased from 100 to 200
  • Summon Putrid Hounds damage increased from 200 to 300
  • Summon Skeletal Mage damage increased from 500 to 600
  • Summon Swamp Boar damage increased from 100 to 200
  • Summon Swamp Boar Rot damage increased from 300 to 400
  • Summon Ballista damage increased from 120 to 200
