- Not to be confused with Revengeance, which is the item that activates this gamemode.
Revengeance Mode is a new gamemode introduced in the Calamity Mod, serving as an increased difficulty level to Expert Mode. It is activated by using the Revengeance item, which is added to a newly spawned player's inventory, in an Expert Mode world. Attempting to activate it in a Normal Mode world has no effect, and using the item during a boss battle will instantly kill the player, with the death message '<PlayerName> was licked.'. The transition to Revengeance Mode is irreversible. It is further succeeded in difficulty by Death Mode.
General Changes[edit | edit source]
- Adds two new mechanics into the game, Rage Meter and Adrenaline Meter.
- All enemies drop 5 times more money.
- Enemy spawn rates are boosted.
- You deal 5% more damage but you also take 5% more damage (this is active only after your first boss kill).
- Before you have killed your first boss you take 20% less damage.
- Numerous soft caps are applied to stats, reducing their effectiveness above a certain point.
- Damage boosts are soft capped at 85%. Any amount exceeding the cap will be 75% less effective.
- Critical strike chance is soft capped at 75%. Any amount exceeding the cap will be 90% less effective.
- Damage reduction is soft capped at 33%. Any amount exceeding the cap will be 90% less effective.
- Life regen is soft capped at 18. Any amount exceeding the cap will be 75% less effective.
- Many enemies now inflict Horror and/or Marked for Death.
- All attacks labelled as summon will do much less damage if the player is holding a weapon belonging to a different class. This decrease scales as you progress (0% in Pre-Hardmode, 33% in Hardmode and 66% Post-Moon Lord).
- If the player is not holding a weapon, summon attacks will do slightly higher damage than usual.
- Vanilla flails deal 100% more damage.
- The Chain Guillotines only deal 20% more damage.
- Allows usage of the Defiled Rune.
- Bosses drop 11 treasure bags while Armageddon is active.
- Sandstorms will only occur after Skeletron has been defeated.
Damage Reduction[edit | edit source]
- Grants percentage-based damage reduction to many enemies and bosses, including vanilla ones. Depending on intensity, this can cause opponents to take significantly longer to kill.
- Enemy damage reduction is not calculated in the same manner as player damage reduction:
- Firstly, incoming damage is increased by adding one quarter of the struck enemy's defense.
- This increased damage is multiplied by (1 minus the enemy's damage reduction).
- Finally, this value is subtracted by half of the enemy's defense as usual.
- This does not apply to enemies with zero damage reduction; damage is calculated normally.
