To celebrate the rework of Broken Spire, we will be running a Kingdom Pass for the next 5 weeks. This Kingdom Pass will introduce 4 new Troops and 2 new Weapons to Broken Spire.
During this Kingdom Pass, Pyrophemus is a semi-rare encounter in PvP and Explore, with the chance to encounter him decreasing after players have done so 5 times that day. Defeating him will give 1 Kingdom Pass Crown. Each Crown earned will assist players progressing through the Kingdom Pass. Each Kingdom Pass level needs 5 Kingdom Crowns. No more than 10 Crowns can be earned per day. (His chance to appear will reset with daily reset.)
We have a sneak peek at a few of the rewards that will be available from the either Reward Track in this Kingdom Pass When the Kingdom Pass ends, players will be able to earn these unique rewards in the following ways:
- Flame Rhynax + Fire Beetle – They can be found in both reward tracks. They will start appearing in chests 2-3 months after the Kingdom Pass ends.
- Pyrophemus – He can be found in the Royal reward track. He will start appearing in chests 2-3 months after the Kingdom Pass ends.
- The Molten Ward – This weapon is available in the Free Reward Track. Once the Kingdom Pass ends, craftable from the Soulforge during weekly events in Broken Spire.
- Slashing Embers – This weapon is available in the Royal Reward Track. Once the Kingdom Pass ends, craftable from the Soulforge during weekly events in Broken Spire.
- Minfernus – This Pet can be found in both reward tracks and can be encountered as a random Pet Rescue when defeating Pet Gnomes.
The Tarot card for this event is the Ace of Wands. Once this Kingdom Pass ends, it will go into the Vault after 2-3 months.
For the next 2 weeks we will have a Legends Reborn event set in the Broken Spire. Legends Reborn can be accessed from either the Games Menu or the Broken Spire Kingdom Menu (if the storyline has been completed previously).
As part of the celebration of the Broken Spire Rework, we have gone back and updated the story. This updated story has been rewritten to use the new conversation style, and the battles have been updated to include a greater variety of enemies to fight against.
You will be able to play/replay the story for Broken Spire during this event. The story will have multiple difficulties that can be played through as new difficulties unlock over time. Each time a new difficulty is completed, players will earn a copy of one of the new Pets. Quest rewards from normal playthroughs of the story (Bonus Income, etc) will not be earned if playing the Story through Legends Reborn.
Defeat Brown Enemies to collect Lanterns to be able to earn Reward Tiers of the Legends Reborn event, including more new pets. Collecting the rewards for each track within a Tier will unlock access to the Bonus reward for that Tier.
We have several new Pets that Players will be able to collect from the event:
- Ogress’ Calf – This pet will buff the stats of the Ogress. It can be earned from the Free Reward Track in this Legends Reborn event.
- Flame Troll’s Pup – This pet will buff the stats of the Flame Troll. It can be earned by completing playthroughs of the Broken Spire story within this Legends Reborn event at different difficulties.
- Sheggra’s Slime – This pet will buff the stats of Sheggra. It can be earned by purchasing from the Gem Reward Track.
- Infernus’ Imp – This pet will buff the stats of Infernus. It can be earned by purchasing from the Premium Reward Track.
