We're proud to release our latest update to the game, 1.6.0, which brings a whole suite of changes to combat. Batter your foes, unleash the power of your artefacts and enjoy enhanced manoeuvrability with Hand of Fate 2: Combat Reforged!

Bash Abilities

All armours now have Bash abilities
Bash abilities charge based on number of Defends
While uncharged, Bash causes a brief stun and scales the duration based on the amount of charge
Charge resets when a bash is used
Improved responsiveness of 'bash'
5x existing armour cards now have new tokens to unlock to upgrade them
3x existing shield cards now have new tokens to unlock to upgrade them
Number of Defends to charge bash degrade in combat, similarly to weapon ability charge

Bash Types

Stun Bash: Cause Stun to a single target
Stun Blast: Causes Stun to an area
Knockdown Bash: Causes Knockdown to a single target
Confuse Bash: Causes Confuse, enemies will fight on the player side for a short time
Bleed Bash: Causes damage over time, and slows the enemy attacks and movement
Freeze Bash: Causes Freeze to a single target


Cooldowns on all artefacts have been greatly reduced
Improved the responsiveness of other actions after using an artefact.

Horn Artefacts

Horns no longer lose their charge, instead they have a set number of uses per combat
There is a warm-up after the combat begins until the item can be used
Some items have been slightly rebalanced to accommodate these changes
Cry of Victory (horn): 1 once per combat
Heroes Call (horn): 3 uses per combat
Will of the Emperor (horn): 3 uses per combat
Will of the Northerner (changed from potion to horn): 3 uses per combat

Apprentice Mode

Option to enable/disable in the settings menu

General Combat

Improved evade distance consistency
Weapon Ability Charge - the number of hits required to perform weapon abilities has been reduced on some equipment allowing those abilities to be used more frequently
Reduced 'stickiness' after defending/riposting - only the riposte autotargets the defender, subsequent attacks can be redirected bashed on input direction
Increased chance of hits causing Knockdown to low health enemies
Dual Wielded ripostes will cause a short stun if the enemy attempt to counter-attack (see Enemy Rebalance)
Increased responsiveness of followup actions after using an artefact
