Vanilla Changes

Nurse Price Scaling

In Revengeance Mode, the price of the Nurse's healing scales with progression in the game. The price for healing will also be multiplied by 5 if any bosses are alive. In Death Mode, the Nurse will completely refuse to heal the player if a boss is currently alive.

Reforge System Rework

If the Remove Reforge RNG configuration option is enabled, the Goblin Tinkerer's reforge system will be entirely reworked:

  • All modifiers are grouped into categories that consist of 6 tiers, categories are determined by weapon damage type and ability to receive certain modifiers over others.
  • Each time the player reforges an item, the tier gets higher until tier 6 is reached. Reforging an item past the max tier will give the max tier modifier forever.
    • Rolling an item to tier 0 will grant a random modifier that weapon can receive.
  • Modifiers get progressively more powerful the higher the tier. Rolling an item to tier 6 will always grant the best modifier possible for its category (For example, if the Crystalline is currently at tier 5, its next reforge would grant it the Flawless modifier).
  • Weapons can no longer receive negative modifiers when reforging.
  • If an accessory has the highest tier modifier it can obtain, only the highest tier modifier can be rolled if that item is reforged (For example, if the Coin of Deceit currently has the Silent modifier, its next reforge has the potential to roll the Lucky modifier, but can not roll the Spiked modifier).
  • All weapons can now receive their class type's best modifier except for Flails, Spears, and Yoyos. Weapons that have no knockback cannot gain knockback increasing modifier bonuses. Ranged weapons that have a use time lower than 6 will not receive any speed-adjusting modifier bonuses. Mage weapons that have a mana cost lower than 5 will not receive any mana cost decreasing modifier bonuses.
  • All reforge value costs have been decreased by 50%. This includes all modifiers introduced by the Calamity Mod.
  • A full list of the categories and items associated with them can be found below:
