* New Gamemode - Team Deathmatch Very simple rules: 2 teams of 4, no respawns, first team to win 3 round, wins the match. (Similar to Duel.) Rate of focus gain is increased and players maintain focus between rounds. Super intense.
* Queue to multiple 4 vs 4 game modes There's checkboxes (all filled in by default) that enable you to select which 4 vs 4 gamemodes to queue to.
* New crafting recipies New Ranged Weapons, Trinkets, Imps and really cool Staffs. You can also purchase scrolls for magicks you already own.
*Quick Select Magicks Holding a customizable key (default space) brings up a full menu of all magicks, select the ones you want quickly. Hence, quick select.
* Zoom in the Mastery Tree Mouse scrollwheel zooms in/out in the mastery tree for easier navigation and discovery. Zoom!
Minor things: * Levels of all players are visible in the score screen ingame. * New epic loot in the treasure chest.
And a bunch of Bugfixes and minor tweaks of course. No game balance changes.
