Divinity: Original Sin 2 AI 2.0 Patch Notes v22.214.171.1242 For Update 33:
There are a lot of game improvements with this patch. As I have already mentioned above, there are design changes, additions and bug fixes. There is a new AI system in the game. This system makes the AI smarter and difficult to fight with. They will use better combat skills, barrels, and surfaces, so you have to be more careful. Now, you will find less gear in a random loot. But, there will be more gold. This makes the trading more important. There are also three new arenas, a Forbidden Valley, Ravenshaw Mansion, Enemy at the Gates and AI will now be in these arenas to make it even harder for you.
About the balancing you will find that invisibility is no longer active by Frozen, Stunned, Taunted, Wet, Sleeping, Petrified and Knocked Down. So now, if the surface does a damage the invisibility will be removed. In addition, there is a new ability, Perseverance. This is a defense skill that gives back part of the armor after being controlled by a status.
Divinity: Original Sin 2 AI 2.0 adds new visual effects, new grenades, arrows, skills when you are in a campaign or Arena Mode and new elemental weapon impacts. Also, you will now find a map marker from Delorus when you heal him.
Here are some of the bug fixes. If you want to see the full list, you are more than welcome to visit the official Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Steam and find out more.
