Dragon Marked for Death - Version 2.1.1 patch notes

A slight update

Dragon Marked for Death has been updated to Version 2.1.1. You can check out the full patch notes for this update below.

System Change

– In multiplayer games, the amount of health a boss has and the amount of damage done to players by poison is now dependent on the number of players. The more players there are, the more these will increase.

– Bosses that appear in the “Cavern of Torment” quest of 85F and 90F have had their health reduced.

Bug Fixes

– Fixed a bug on the “Cavern of Torment” quest that was causing damage received from hazardous terrain (spikes, poison swamps, etc.) to be higher than it should be.

– Fixed a bug on the “Cavern of Torment” quest that was causing the boss on 90F to not properly recover HP when performing the relevant action.

– Fixed a bug that was causing the Named Monster “The Demon’s Puppet” to take only half the damage they were supposed to.

– Fixed a bug that was causing quest progression data to not be erased when deleting a character at the Inn.

– Fixed various other display issues, audio issues, and enemy behavior issues.
