##Savage Acrid The goal of this mod is to make the Blight Melee Acrid playstyle more viable. These buffs are designed to reward stacking Blight, while not doing much for Poison.


  • Dependent Mods

    • Blight now refreshes its timer when new stacks are added.
    • Acrid's M1 hitbox is bigger and more reliable.
  • Blight

    • Duration increased 5s -> 10s.
  • Regenerative

    • Regenerative attacks now deal +10% TOTAL damage for each stack of Blight + Poison on an enemy.
    • Regenerative attacks now refresh the duration of all Poison/Blight stacks on an enemy.
  • Ravenous Bite

    • Reduces all cooldowns by 2s and heals an additional 5% of your max HP on kill .
  • Caustic Leap

    • This skill now slams airborne enemies downwards with great force.
  • Frenzied Leap (Alt Utility)

    • This skill is now Regenerative, and benefits from the aforementioned Regenerative changes.
    • This skill now slams airborne enemies downwards with great force.

  • Blight duration increased 5s -> 10s, since 5s makes it near impossible to stack against crowds (and makes Epidemic pretty useless as a result). If you have any other mods that apply blight, go to the config and set the duration back to 5s, since this mod increases the duration by multiplying it whenever the game tries to apply Blight.


  • Ravenous Bite cooldown reduction description now matches the config setting.


  • Regenerative damage bonus reduced 15% -> 10%.
  • Ravenous Bite cooldown reduction on kill increased 1s -> 2s.
  • Added config.


  • Removed dependency on AcridRegenFix because I felt it was making Acrid too tanky. Let me know how this feels!
  • Regenerative damage bonus increased from +10% -> +15%.
  • Ravenous Bite now reduces skill cooldowns by 1s on kill.
  • Ravenous Bite heal on kill removed from the skill description. It still works though! It's just a hidden attribute now.


  • Added config to Enable/Disable Regenerative damage bonus and Utility skill slam. Number changing will not come until later when I'm confident the mod is in a good spot.
  • Regenerative damage bonus reduced +20% -> +10%. Main reasons behind this are that Blight is easy to stack, and Acrid's Regenerative skills all deal high base damage. I'll be keeping an eye on this to see how it feels.
  • Utility downwards slam force reduced 3200 -> 2700.
  • Caustic Leap slam airborne enemies downwards as well. Idea is that you're making a choice between Blight stacking (default) or Sustain+Damage (alt), with the slam being an inherent feature of the leap skills to allow Acrid to bring flying enemies to ground-level where he can fight them.
