Gas Powered Games and Stardock are excited to release the v1.3 update for the popular real-time tactical strategy game, Demigod.  This update includes a host of fixes and improvements.

Fixes:

  • Abilities while moving fix: Demigod movement has been re-architected to resume attacking previous targets after using abilities. This fixes multiple problems with triggering Demigod abilities while moving.The following exceptions and modifications are by design:
  • Direct targeted abilities, where it makes sense, will cause the Demigod to switch targets (like Warp Strike and Pounce). This will also set the old target variable so if they use a further ability they will go back to attacking their new target.
  • Escape abilities (like Warp Scroll and Bat Swarm) will not re-engage the old target and will actually clear the old target so using another ability will not cause you to re-engage.
  • Giving a move order will clear your old target. So, giving a move order and then casting Warp Area will cause DA to attack whatever he ends up closest to.
  • Fix for ranged units stopping short when ordered to attack structures.
  • Fix for summoned minions not starting at max health when the player has +minion health items.
  • Fix for Oculus' Ball Lightning spawning in invalid locations.
  • Unclean Beast's Plague ability will no longer overwrite Post Mortem.
  • Wings of the Seraphim will no longer be removed when healed.
  • -Heart of Life effects will no longer be removed when healed.
  • Fix for obscure Russian-translated map domination crash. Thank you, Ptarth, for helping to point the way on that.

Improvements:

  • Achievement and Single Player tournament screen Demigod lists now have scrollbars.
  • Oculus’ Ball Lightning will now benefit from standard minion HitPoint Buffs.

Demigod customers can update to v1.3 via Impulse.

OMG I just clicked and told my Demigod to go somewhere and then used the wand of speed, and my Demigod didn't even stop!!!!!! WOOT.f

 

EDIT: WotS QoT?
 

Yeah... before if you or your ally had bramble shield in effect, WotS would be negated if it absorbed damage but whatever they did to fix the healing changed that as well.

It won't help at all late game once the nukes get ridiculous, but early to midgame it will be brutal I would think.  Imagine me playing QoT and we're 2v2 against a couple of Europeans at the HP flag...

Euro #1: "How is can we not push thems off of these flag?!"

Euro #2: "Because they use thah shield then use thah healing aura... these is dildos!"

Ptarth:  You say nothing additional was changed then state they fixed Electrocution?   

Er.. Huh. I could have sworn it was on the patch list.

 

Nucleus Accumbens


So, the text for "Electrocution" should say "Chain Lightning... reduces Health and Mana Regeneration by 100% for 10 sec"?

 

I don't have a good short way to write the tooltip, it seems really easy to misinterpret.

So the priest will still get stuck in citadel?

Thanks for updates tho. Altho, some of them, I wasn't even aware of.

The Post Mortem does give xp because it uses knock-back to kill (warriors & archers). Knock-back kills currently don't award xp.
That's a contradiction . So do Knock-back kills give XP or not? Or does Post Mortem give XP or not?
