- Bosses returne to their original locations
- Buffed physical attacks by 30% of 1.3 values
- Revamped several boss skills
- Added new boss attacks
- Buffed "old skills" based on 1.3 values

Hirelings
- Increased Hitpoints to be similar to player values; a1 and a3 have 7000 base hp at level 100; a2 and a5 have 9000 base hp at level 100
- Merc base stats are now the same whether you hire them in normal, nm or hell
- Rebalanced merc skills, all mercs should have a smooth power curve now
- A2 and a5 combat mercs have a buff to increase their dmg%, ar% and def% similar to wolf and bear mercs
- A5 combat merc now has berserk and merc frenzy (gives no dr% deals 3/4 weapon damage with a 1/3 weapon damage nova)
- Physical Rogue is back; she has magic arrow and merc shot; reduced merc shot from 3/4 to 1/2 weapon damage


Cube Recipes
- you can now craft using a crafted item instead of a blue
- Added cube recipe to downgrade runes: 1 rune = 1 lower grade rune (making 1 rune = 2 lower runes would trivialize the farming aspect of runes)
- Elite Crafted Melee Weapon + Zod rune = make the item ethereal
- Magic weapon/armor -> normal quality; magic weapon/armor + mithril hammer + adamant hammer + jewel = same item type as normal quality

Items
- reduced the range of throwing knife the nova; it now deals 1/2 weapon damage
- added the knife nova to throwing axes
- Armors with 150 str requirement or higher can spawn with hp% and dr% as a magical affix.
- 150-160 str = 12-15% hp; 12-13 dr%
- 161-169 str = 16-20% hp; 13-14 dr%
- 170-180 str = 21-25% hp; 14-15 dr%
- 200+ str = 26-30% hp; 15-17 dr%

- Wirts jewel now -5% requirements
- removed -requirement mod from affix pool
- Rubies now give only a flat hp bonus
- Added 30% hp auto mod to 2handed axes, mauls, spears and polearms (some uniques do not have this bonus example: spellsteal) twohanded swords do not have this bonus beacause generally only barbs use them as a 1 hander
- Increased cap on life replenish
- hp% mod is exclusive to torso armor and 2 handed melee weapons with some exeptions
- Completely new set items (as seen in my other thread)
- Revamped Runewords (as seen in my other thread)
- Edited 99% of Unique items
- Removed most OSkill party buffs and auras from items
- Items with piercing attack show the % chance to pierce now
- Removed ctc amp from helms and added it to gloves instead
- CB affixes on 2 handed magic/rare mauls, polearms, spears, axes can roll higher than 1 handed weapons
- Increased quality of all rune drops, addtionallu Countess and Nihlathak have been increased as well
- Countess can drop Eth-Sol in normal, Ko-Gul in NM, Mal-Ber in Hell (25.86% chance for lowest quality and 1.72% for the highest)
- Nilathak can drop Lum-Ist in Normal, Um-Sur in NM, Gul-Cham in Hell (25.86% chance for lowest quality and 1.72% for the highest)
- Removed Soul, Crystal and Scarlet bands, will add them back as random drops later. (I don't like the idea of guarenteed drops from a boss that you have limited access to during the game; the drops either have to be overowered so they make all other items useless or they are underpowered and at that point why even have them. They seem uneccessary as well since I balanced this mod around not having them.)

Characters

Poison Skills
- I changed the way the poison length scales on the following skills:
- Poison Strike
- Poison Javelin
- Disease Spray
- Rabies
- The poison duration of these skills start at 8.08 seconds at level one and are lowered by .12 seconds per skill level after skill level 16. At skill level 50 they have a 4.08 second duration. This is so that as you get stronger and gain more pierce to reduce enemy PLR you still must regularly re-apply your poison every 4-5 seconds instead of every 10 seconds. Since the duration starts at 8.08 seconds and scales down slowly this actually helps poison builds early while reducing their incredibly safe mid and late game.

Amazon

Poison Javelin
- Now a melee skill similar to poison strike; it has no cloud since amazons are inherently more durable than necromancers

Disease Spray
- Now releases a poison cloud that has about 66% of the dps of poison javelin
