Ancient Knowledge: This passive ability no longer decreases the cast time of your Destruction Staff Heavy Attacks by 5/10%. Instead, it grants you a bonus as long as you have one Destruction Staff ability slotted. This bonus depends on your staff type:
- Flame Staves: Increases your single-target damage dealt by 4/8%.
- Frost Staves: Increases the amount of damage you Block by 10/20%, and reduces the cost of Block by 15/30%.
- Lightning Staves: Increases your Area of Effect damage dealt by 4/8%.
- This passive ability now taunts the enemy after you use a fully-charged Frost Heavy Attack.
- This passive ability now causes your block to drain Magicka (instead of Stamina) and stops your Magicka Recovery (instead of Stamina Recovery) while blocking when you have a Frost Destruction Staff equipped.
