Artifact of Dissonance

Adds Hermit Crabs to Dissonance as they missed it.

Cleans up the balance of the Artifact a bit to spam less minibosses and have more evenly distributed categories.

For enemies with multiple skins such as Titans or Vermin, a different skin will be chosen at the start of every stage.

When using Dissonance all enemies on Commencement/Simumencement can be Perfected Elites.

Artifact of Honor

Allows Worms to be Elites when Artifact of Honor is enabled. (Can be configured to always allow Elite Worms)

Forces Mithrix and Voidling to be Lunar/Voidtouched respectively instead of a specific Tier1 elite.

Forces Minions and Drones to be random elite.

Makes it so you start with an Elite Equipment.

Artifact of Vengence

As they have made Umbras scale with level in the vanilla game, this is mostly just trying to fix up the balance as they can feel unfair to fight.

Umbras scale with more factors such as stage count and your level.

Umbras will inherit only limited amounts of some items to prevent them from being an instant death or immortal.

Umbras use equipment when attacking while generally being in mid to close range and also sprint more often.

Changes their drops to be more high level tiers. (Green, Red, Yellow)
Umbras will be able to drop items they're not normally able to drop. (Captain Microbots, Dios)

You will encounter a random Umbra instead one for the character you're playing as when using Metamorphosis.

Artifact of Evolution & Tag Changes

Artifact of Evolution will now give a stack of 3 Whites or 2 Greens after looping so enemies can keep up for longer.

The Void team will now inherit items too and any item that has a Void version will be transformed into that.

Evolution can no longer give:
Nkuhanas Opinion, Spare Drone Parts, Tesla Coil, Aegis, Hunters Harpoon, Regenerative Scrap.
Brittle Crown, Gesture of the Drowned, Beads of Fealty, Egocentrism, Focused Convergence, Defiant Gauge.

This should reduce the amount of unfairly overpowered items items enemies can get while also preventing some useless ones.

Artifact of Kin & Yellow Drops for enemies

Artifact of Kin will try to always have a different enemy than the last stage.

Hordes of Many will now drop fitting Yellow Items depending on the enemy.
This should help with Artifact of Kin or just general situations where the game fails to spawn a Boss.
You cannot use Tricorn on enemies for these drops.

Titanic Knurl:       Stone Golem
Queen's Gland:       Beetle, Beetle Guard
Genesis Loop:        Jellyfish
Little Disciple:     Lesser Wisp, Greater Wisp
Molten Perforator:   Lemurian, Elder Lemurian
Charged Perforator:  Overloading Lemurian, Overloading Elder Lemurian
Shatterspleen:       Imp
Mired Urn:           Clay Templar, Clay Apothecary
Empathy Cores:       Solus Probe, Alloy Vulture
Planula:             Parent
Defense Nucleus:     Alpha Construct
Irradiant Pearl:     Lunar Exploder, Lunar Golem, Lunar Wisp
Newly Hatched Zoea:  Void Barnacle, Void Reaver, Void Jailer

Artifact of Enigma

Any Equipment can be turned into 8% Equipment Cooldown Reduction if you already have an Equipment.

Enigma can no longer give Spinel Tonic, Recycler, Tricorn and can now give Milky Chrysalis, Effigy of Grief.

Artifact of Soul

Bosses and larger minibosses spawn Greater Soul Wisps.

Soul Wisps inherit any items/equipment their host had.

Soul Wisps had their stats adjusted to last longer but have a bit less damage.
They die on a timer now instead of due to degeneration.

Overall this should make the Artifact more noticible but still often just free on kill effects.

Misc Artifact Changes

Artifact of Sacrifice now drops Void items for Void enemies and spawns more enemies at the start of each stage.

Artifact of Command allows choice of Aspect when you manage to get one and not spawn a command cube if it would be only 1 option.

Artifact of Frailty now removes fall damage immunity and Headstompers doesn't show up.

Artifact of Swarms now works on more ally items such as Goobo Jr, Spare Drone Parts, Gup, and ups every team limit by 50%.

Artifact of Spite got some minor increases in almost all areas.

Report bugs and feedback to @Wolfo#6210 in the Risk of Rain 2 Modding discord.
