The Patch notes for v2.10 were released on August 15th, 2014 on the Fates Forever forums. The Patch notes included the following changes:


What’s up guys, my name is Zencha and I’m here to bring you patch notes for update 2.10.

After releasing 2.9, we’ve gone and solicited feedback from the community to better direct changes to our updates. 2.10 is the culmination of that feedback and we hope you love it!

As Illumina said:

We see Fates as the community’s game - not just ours. We think of ourselves as the stewards of the Vale, so it’s very important to us that you (and everyone else) enjoy our updates. Sometimes there will be changes that people disagree with, but overall our intention is to make playing Fates a more fun and exciting experience over time.

What we have done to better incorporate feedback from the community:

  • We opened a thread to facilitate discussion about what YOU in the community want to see changed. See that thread here.
  • We reached out to our players on a one-by-one basis to solicit feedback.

First off, we want to say a big thank you to everyone that provided feedback. While we couldn’t address every single issue, we tried to make sure that we addressed all ones that would have a significant impact on the game As a result, we’ve made a slew of shattering changes that will provide for, what we hope, is a more interesting, fair, healthy, and ultimately fun game to enjoy. With all that said, I hope you all… wait a second… what’s the green mist filling the room? Oh it smells… foul. I’m feeling…. wooozy………



AHAH! Zencha, your team stands no chance! All shall bear witness to my omnipotence.

First Hammer and Chisel and then the WORLD.

All shall know and say my name! “Kru’El” they will chant. Ah, yes, what an intoxicating thought.

Hm… these patch notes introduce me, eh? Well then, it’s my honor to finish them.


In the latest patch, we’re introducing our most elegant, nefarious, and incredibly handsome Contestant yet, ME! Kru’El, the Plague Crocodile. How fitting a title.

I’m a powerful mid-range caster who’s abilities make my enemies cower in fear of the plague. So frightful. I love watching them run.

Here are my exciting abilities!

Kru'El, the Plague CrocodileEdit

Pestilence Pestilence (Passive)

  • Kru’El’s abilities apply pestilence which damages over time. If an enemy dies with pestilence on it, it explodes dealing damage and applying pestilence to those around it.
  • With his last breath, Kru’El will apply pestilence to himself on death, exploding after a short delay.

15px Malevolent Grasp

  • Kruel calls on the underworld and hands reach up from the ground, damaging enemies and ensnaring them.

Etherealbolts Ethereal Bolts

  • Creates at plague pool at target location, dealing damage to all enemies within it and healing Kru’El for a percent of the damage dealt.

Cesspool Cesspool

  • Creates at plague pool at target location, dealing damage to all enemies within it and healing Kru’El for a percent of the damage dealt.

Constriction Constriction (Ultimate)

  • After a short delay Kru’El constricts his opponents, pulling all enemies to the center of an area and damaging them.

Such grace. Such power. Wow. I’m incredibly impressed by this move set. Only a dashing genius would have abilities of this caliber.



Wait one nasty moment…. what’s that sound?



What…. oh, Zencha is coming to? How can this be!?

A HEALTH POTION!? How could I be fooled by such a simple item.

No worries. I have… oh no. I’m out of Mana. Foiled by my own overindulgence! This is where I take my leave, then.

Recalling in 5…





What just happened? Weird. Hm… why do I have the words world domination ringing in my head? Strange.
