Players can now make the most of their Legendary Items! With this patch, a feature has been added which allows players to salvage any Primal Item for 55 Primordial Ashes at the Blacksmith. Even better - if you have 100 Primordial Ashes and are feeling daring, use Kanai's Cube to upgrade any non-crafted item into its primal variant with all new affixes. However, be warned: only one upgraded Primal Item may be active at once and it will not carry over original stats from your Legendary... so choose wisely.
The mysterious powers of the Altar of Rites have been amplified! Seal N now grants an even clearer authority, while Seal X prevents pets from upstaging their owners when adventuring. In addition, a snag with over-generous progress orbs has been fixed thanks to diligent work on Seal V. It is time for grand new adventures with upgraded protection and rewards along the way!

Meanwhile Demon Hunters employ Chanon Bolter to entice enemies into range of Spike Traps that deal deadly volleys of 150 - 200% increased damage. For added devastation, The Demons Demise will have foes facing double trouble as every blast also damages them after one second with another increase in power between 150 and 200%. Because of the community’s feedback about the Natalya's changes; developers wanted to move Natalya's away from Gears of Dreadlands for giving it a unique identity. They hope Natalya's playstyle gives players more control over the explosions they set off while navigating the battlefield.
Natalya’s Slayer set is here to turn the tide of battle! With this powerful equipment, your Spike Traps will be deadlier than ever. Spike damage is increased by 10-15%. Already formidable traps? Not anymore thanks to Natalya's Vengeance. With two-piece bonus enemies affected by Caltrops take full force of a 100% extra spike trap damage (without costing any resources and instantly refreshing charges too) But that’s not all; with four pieces equipped you unlock 75% reduced incoming damage while laying down more enemies disabling spiked fences! Finally, donning on an entire six sets grants terrifying 10,000 increased explosive power in each detonation for even massive chain reactions at 25 % higher blast strength per strike. If you dare wielding such immense preternatural energy like Natalya does then fear no army mighty or small alike.
Enter the Dreadlands with confidence as your primary skills inflict an astonishing 27,500% increased damage. Equip two pieces of The Shadow's Mantle to bolster Bolas, Chakram, Fan of Knives and Impale with 6,000% more destructive force. Bear in mind that Spike Trap won't benefit from this power-up! To make sure you have Trag'oul Coils that empower your spike traps with Scatter Rune technology for twice the deployment speed unleashing up to 200% extra devastating potential. Bring it all together in Unhallowed Essence where just 1 point of discipline will magnify Hatred generators Vengeance attacks and Multishot by 1700%.

Necromancers in the Masquerade have Bone Spear cranked up to 9,000%, tripled for their Simulacrums. Witch Doctors receive Spirit Barrage: Manitou Rune and summon a specter shooting Cold bolts at nearby foes with 14,000% weapon power over twenty seconds.
