Patch History[]

Fixed Ash’s Blade Storm not triggering Arcanes with the “On Finisher Kill” condition (i.g. Arcane Trickery, etc.).

Update 35.5 (2024-03-27)

  • Fixed context action Finishers not triggering “On Finisher Kill” Arcanes (Arcane Trickery).

Update 34.0 (2023-10-18)

  • Fixed several cases where the game was not recognizing a Ground Finisher for the activation of Mods and Arcanes. The intent is that Ground Finishers, Stealth Finishers and Parazon Finishers should be equivalent unless explicitly stated otherwise:
    • Arcane Trickery will now activate from Ground Finishers

Hotfix 31.7.2 (2022-08-17)

  • Fixed Arcane Ultimatum not proccing off Ash's Bladestorm.

Update 31.6 (2022-06-09)


We’ve adjusted the values of older Arcanes with the goal of making lower rank Arcanes more viable, and more desirable while collecting as a result. In short, there are three stats that each Arcane tends to have (speaking generally) -- for example, a percentage chance, a stat buff, and the duration of the buff.

Certain Arcanes increase all of these stats per rank (making them scale exponentially), but we are changing it so that only one stat is affected by rank (making it scale linearly). The other stats will now be at the max-rank value regardless of the Arcane Rank, thereby buffing lower-rank Arcanes as a result.

Arcane Trickery

On Finisher Kill: 15% (was 3%) chance to become invisible for 5s/30s

Update 29.1 (2020-09-17)

  • Fixed Marked for Death with Arcane Trickery equipped triggering invisibility almost every time, because each enemy hit by the AoE has its own 15% chance to activate Arcane Trickery.

Update 16.0 (2015-03-19)

  • Introduced.
