Hey everyone,

Chinese (Simplified) Community Translation
In today's weekly patch, you will find a community translation for Chinese (Simplified). Keep in mind that there is differing render logic so you may experience some issues. Please let us know if you see anything strange and we will do our best to fix it!

Holiday Time Off
As we are nearing the holidays seasons we want to let you know that Weekly Patch 6 will NOT be coming next week but the week after (January 4, 2018).

Okay, patch notes time:

  • <50% hp logic becomes a bit more consistent, potential fix for Red Skull not triggering.
  • Book of Stabbing is completely reworked. Lots more stabbing, and a lot less random.

  • Card Dash+ gets +1 damage and +1 Block.
