There's a new patch in Battlerite and although it's small, it brings with it some significant improvements - most notably to the newly released Ruh Kaan. It's fair to say he was incredibly weak, mainly because he dealt too little damage and healed himself for too little. His Sinister Strike was pretty much suicide if you used it and thankfully its now got some love. Take a look below. 

A small patch is coming today, containing the following: 

  • Audio Changes
    • Ruh Kaan
      • New sound effects for Shadow Bolt
      • Added voice lines for match and game wins.
    • Jumong - Lowered sound level on Hunting Arrow.
    • Jade - Snipe cast sound effect is now interrupted when canceling the cast.
  • Balance Tweaks
    • Ruh Kaan
      • Curse
        • Duration increased from 2.4s to 3s.

      • Pummel
        • Energy gain reduced from 6 to 5.
