Knockback v0.2.8 is available now!
This release brings new skills and treasure chests. The new lightning strike modifier deals heavy damage at a high mana cost and is available to the cleric, wizard, hunter and engineer. The new ghostly fist packs quite a punch and lets the Hunter join in on truly knocking the baddies back. The new treasure chests will grant temporary boosts to your skills that immediately apply to any weapons or skills that you already have.
We also improved upon the skill system by adding healing, mana, throwing speed and a couple of class specific skills. The hunter gains the hawkeye skill, which will let you zoom in for that critical shot, and my new favorite is the cleric's life syphon. The cleric can use their health as a mana pool. It is risky, so manage it carefully, but it can be used to devastating effect.
