  • Shard of Hate
  • Fixed an issue where the internal cooldown for this item's Legendary affix was being reset when dual-wielding.

  • Moonlight Ward
  • Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan

Blessed Shield - Shattering Throw

  • Should no longer cause players to deal Area Damage to themselves and allies.

Iron Maiden

  • This skill no longer erroneously scales with monster difficulty and provides 6102 Thorns @ level 70.
