Dungeon Defenders Patch & Free DLC Released

Steam announces an automatic update is now available for Dungeon Defenders to bring the dungeon crawler to version 7.40 along with the announcement that the new Jester Hero DLC is now available for the game, and will be free-of-charge for the next two weeks. Here's word:

A sly trickster born in a whimsical realm of chaos, the Jester's abilities are shrouded in mystery. She can quickly turn the tide of battle by using any weapon and can deceive enemies with 'presents' that explode to reveal random defenses and bonuses. Her 'Move Tower' ability allows her to adapt defensive strategies and react to any combat situation, while her 'Wheel O' Fortuna' ability can grant boons or decimate friend and foe alike.

Great support for a great product.

Lol, yes and no. That they're offering the Jester for free temporarily (as they did some previous holiday-themed DLC) probably means the class is a piece of shit. Both the Series EV and Summoner classes made HUGE impacts on game-wide balance when they were added as DLC; they're so good/overpowered that you basically have to buy them to use yourself or play with somebody else who has one or both in order to not be severely handicapped in the highest difficulties. They sure as hell weren't handing those out for nothin'.

EDIT: Yep, I just read up on it... The Jester is little more than a novelty class, a fun little joke whose abilities are based primarily on random chance. He simply sews chaos and is incredibly hard to solo because you cannot reliably build defenses. For example, the "towers" you place are presents that, when opened up, will spawn either a random tower from another class, a [crappy] loot drop, some mana gems, or an enemy monster (mostly ogres from what I'm seeing, wow). People say his stats make him a pretty decent hero character, since he can dual-wield any weapons, but that's about it. Seems to me your only chance of getting allowed into a Nightmare-Hardcore match is with a friend or a generous stranger that will allow you to mooch off his build.
