    • Evasion has been replaced with Divine on the Skill Tree.
    • Mindstorm has been replaced by Wildfire.
    • Dev Comment: Merlin has been by far the strongest Arcanist in the game. While we have no quarrel with him being stronger than usual due to his significance in Arthurian legends, he was indeed a bit too strong with his ability to constantly cycle through his low AP cost skills, dishing out tons of Illusions which rendered the Enemy virtually incapacitated.

      • Murderous Intent: The Hero gains Surprise bonus for their next Attack after using a Movement Skill.
      • Forethought: Using a Movement Skill reduces the active Cooldowns on all non-Movement Skills by 1 Turn.
    • Assassination was moved to the old position of Scout in Tier 3.
    • Added Dash as a new skill in Tier 2.
    • A new skill was added in Tier 3:

      • Now also causes Shock to its Target for 1 Turn by default.
      • Thunderflash: instead of granting Shock, it now increases the Duration of the Shock caused by Lightning Trap by 1 Turn.
      • Forked Discharge: instead of increasing the Trap's Range, it now allows Lightning Trap to chain to 1 additional Enemy within 4 Tiles Range of the original Target, dealing 50% of its original Damage and causing Shock for 1 Turn(s).

    • Dev Comment: Sir Bedivere was always a bit lacklustre as a vanguard, lacking the mobility of other Heroes of the class.

Now we believe he is on par with any hero in the current pool in regards of damage output and sustain as well.
