Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem's next major update is now live, and boy is it a big one. Wolcen didn’t exactly receive the most positive reception at release, but since then developers have been releasing update after update to improve the overall quality of the game, while also adding new content.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t been enough. Even after dozens of updates, the game is still plagued with several bugs and an overall lack of polish. That’s why the dev team has decided to focus more on improving the state of the game. No new content was added to the game via this update, however, it did bring countless bug fixes and other changes.

The update improved the game’s performance and brought balancing changes to over 29 skills. Some of the changes made in the update are mentioned below, and you can read the complete patch notes from the official site.
