New Troop: Rock Spirit

It’s not only the night that’s dark and full of terrors… all manner of creatures roam the Drifting Sands, most of them unspeakably violent, pantaloon-wettingly terrifyingly, and jackalope-punchingly difficult to kill. The Rock Spirits are no exception, leaping up from the sands to surprise unwary travellers, it is said that they will rip any trespassers limb from limb, then pause in silent prayer to whatever Gods they worship, their index and smallest fingers raised towards the heavens.

We passed an amazing milestone in Gems of War last week, with the release of our 300th troop.

If you recall, towards the middle of 2016 we started creating 2 troops per week, with an occasional Legendary to spice things up a little. Our goal was to hit 300 as soon as possible, giving us a nice large base of content that would look attractive to our newer players – and help make our collection mechanics function correctly… much better than the 96 troops we released with in 2014!

Happily, we reached that number of troops, but we don’t want to stop there! We’ve got some plans of cool new things to do with troop releases (more on that soon), but for now we’re going to ease back to mostly 1 troop per week for a little while. Stay tuned though.. .we’ve got some exciting things coming in the 3.0 Guild Wars update!
