[ Performance and Crashes ]

- Fixed an issue where Impact Cannon sometimes caused performance issues vs Annihilation.
- Fixed an issue where Upgrading/Downgrading repeatedly could cause hitching or slowdown.

[ Archetypes ]

 = Invoker =
- Engram: Now properly shows Lore and Description when viewed in Wallace’s Inventory. 
- Way of Kauela: Haste applied by other sources will no longer be removed when Kauela ends.
- Way of Kauela: Fixed an issue where Drenched Sound loop would remain after a kill.
- Way of Kaeula: Fixed an issue causing Tidal Wave to skip cooldown and multiple times.
- Way of Kauela: Fixed an issue that caused recasts to refresh the Lighting Cooldown.
DEV NOTE:  The Lighting Blasts from Way of Kauela are on a timer, and recasting would cause this timer to be refreshed. They are now on an independent timer so that recasting will allow the Lighting to strike when it originally should have.
- Way of Meidra: Drenched no longer reverts to base damage upon Archeytpe swap.
- Way of Meidra: Should now consistently heal friendly Companions & Summons.
- Way of Meidra: Fixed an issue allowing Way of Meidra to heal bosses.
DEV NOTE: Vash Cowaii in shambles.
- Way of Lydusa: Increased Critical Bonus Chance from 5% to 10%.
- Way of Lydusa: Added Elemental Damage type for AOE Blasts.
- Way of Lydusa: Now scales with Amplitude.
- Way of Lydusa: Skill Cooldown bar behaves properly when using “reactivation” effect.
- Way of Lydusa: Enabled Sand Devils generation from Skill/Status Damage.
DEV NOTE: While all damage is currently allowed to generate Sand Devils, we are keeping an eye on on. This is because it ends up allowing an infinite cycle of Sand Devils > Detonate when Mod or Status damage continues to apply. The original design was that Brittle was caused by Ranged and Melee Damage, and Sand Devils would also only be created by those damage types as well. We will see how this plays out and may eventually limit it to only those damage types.

 = Ritualist =
- Prime: Fixed a bug causing Amplitude to have a double stacking effect on Vile.
- Wrath: Increased Damage Bonus from 20% to 25% at Max Level.
DEV NOTE: While Ritualist is already quite strong, we wanted to ensure that their strength wasn’t entirely Status Damage so that they could also be used as a Secondary Archetype more effectively. This is a slight buff to benefit all damage in either scenario.

= Gunslinger = 
- Sidewinder: Reduced the Reload Time Decrement from 10s to 6s.
DEV NOTE: This change allows for a few more Swap Reloads with Sidewinder at the base duration of 60s. Previously, 7 were possible. With this update, 11 are possible. Of course, it still benefits from Duration Increases as well.

 = Archon = 
- Power Creep: Increased Mod Refund & Mod Generation Bonuses from 5% to 10%
- Chaos Gate: Increased Mod Generation from 5% to 10%.
- Chaos Gate: - Fixed an issue where VFX were still visible to clients after deactivation.
- Havoc: Fixed an issue causing Havoc to be staggered in some situations.
- Havoc: Fixed an issue where abilities would cancel after going through a Labyrinth portal.
- Havoc: Fixed an issue causing inconsistent Cooldown Refund behaviors.
- Havoc: Fixed an issue causing Blink to trigger AOE Explosion Twice.
- Havoc: Fixed an issue that allowed Footwork and Swiftness to multiply Speed Bonus.
DEV NOTE: Havoc Form was incorrectly labeled as always in “AIM” mode, which allowed Footwork and Swiftness to stack while applying to Lighting Hands and Shield. This is no longer the case, but Movement Speed Bonuses will still apply to both (just not AIM Bonuses). 
- Havoc: Reduced Lighting Hands Base Damage from 56 to 48.
- Havoc: Reduced Movement Speed while Firing Lighting Hands.
- Havoc: Slightly increased the cost of Lighting Hands time decrement per pulse.
DEV NOTE: The combination of Movement Stacking Bonuses and Fire Rate Stacking - which is still enabled – allowed the Archon to easily circle strafe some of the most challenging content while holding down Lighting Hands. Repositioning with Blink was almost never required due to the Speeds that could be attained. This change allows the Archon to retain their maximum Speed Bonuses during normal movement and reduces the evasive effectiveness of simply strafing while firing. We also boosted the Archon’s overall Mod Generation through Power Creep, and added a bit more back to Chaos Gate.

= Engineer = 
- Vulcan Turret: Fixed an issue causing Turret to miss shorter enemies like Hollows or Parasites.
