Balance Changes (Xbox One, PS4)

- **All Monsters** - Minor maintenance and improvements - All monsters can see recent damage on their health bar to help make burst damage visible.
  • Kraken - Fixing some flight edge cases that were causing inconsistencies making him too powerful or too weak depending on the situation.

    • Vortex
      • Cooldown increased by one second.
      • Reduced knockback magnitude.
    • Tranq Darts, Stasis Grenades and Harpoons pull Kraken down at a consistent rate regardless of whether he is in combat or out of combat. (they used to stack outside of combat)
    • Kraken’s flight speed is no longer slowed by Tranqs since they pull him to the ground where running speed is affected.
    • Fixed a bug that was causing Aftershock to not break harpoon traps or Arc Mines.
  • Wraith - Making her movement speed less bursty which makes her easier to keep track of. Making Supernova less lethal while still allowing it to be just as powerful. Making Warp Blast a damage dealer instead of a traversal mechanic.
