Update 260


  • Vecna Alter Added: Accepts only Vecna Coins which can be crafted using specialized tools and resources. Approach the alter and state "Vecna Lives" to see if he will accept your offering but be warned as your lack of preparation or respect can offend him, sometimes costing your life and some coins. Having High luck can help, sometimes even increase the value of your offering. Rumor has it wearing a Skull of Vecna that has been blessed by fragments and other pieces of his soul can decrease the chance of offending. The higher the coin will also decrease the chance of offending and reduce the delay between offerings. Each time you make an offering that is accepted you have a chance of being blessed by Vecna and receiving a Bonus Slot or Mystery Chest [Kas/Vecna].
