v1.63 Patch Notes - Halloween Pt. 2 Hi folks,

To kick off the second week of our Halloween event, we have just released a big DemonCrawl update that includes 36 new items, 2 Special Chests, a new special stage, and an item archetype called Mastery Dolls! Ohh yeah!

Additionally, we have made the Maniac boss a bit less maniacal, giving you more counterplay even in bad openings. Some players have asked if the Maniac is a permanent boss - we can confirm that Maniac is not a standard member of the boss pool and will be disabled outside of the yearly Halloween event.

Read on to find out more:
