    Fae got a major damage buff, got the Glitterbomb mechanic completelly changed, got Faery Dance reworked and got - as you heard - a new class gem while the old class gem is no longer obtainable.

    The update that changed these thigns was the Eclipse Update (Same that added Hydra and Darknik to Shadow Tower). Check out those update logs for more detailed infos about the exact numbers.

    Fae is now amongst the top damage dealers, though it does not rank #1 in sheer dps alone. But Fae is a useful and fun Class to pick now.


    One word about the mechanic of the new Gem:
    The new class gem does allow you to get damage once and you will still deal your full damage via your passive.
    If you get hit a second time, you will lose your passive and deal the usual lowered damage for 2 seconds.

    Remember, that Cubic Curtain (a normal Empowered Gem, not a class gem) does shield you for 1 shot (meaning: you get no damage at all) and also stuns the enemy that tried to damage you for a moment. If you have to choose between Class gem and Cubic Curtain, then get Cubic Curtain. But it is possible to use both gems at the same time, if you want to go as safe as possible.


    Another word about Glitterbombs:
    Those things have now an increased range of effect. At the same moment, they will no longer knock back stuff but instead they will stun things. And on top of this is a huge damage buff (around 3x) which allows you to 1hit normal monsters in U9 at some point. It is also possible to stun lock enemies on distance with those bombs.
    You can pretty much say that Glitterbombs became a permanently epquipped, passively working class gem on top of everything else.


    Conclusion:
    While the new Fae Class Gem is nothing spectecular, there have been on the other side tons of buffs and benefits that permanently increased Fae's performance.

    Sry, kinda lost interest in ultra runs because of mastery gates. The last thing I heard was 1 CB + 7 GS, but this is much likelly outdated. But I am sure that a purple name will pop up any second with detailed info.
