New Event: Gathering Storm
Stormheim is here! The clouds have parted to reveal our first new kingdom.
And to celebrate that, we’ve got a new event AND a whole bunch of minor tweaks to troop balance.
The Giants have arrived. If you’re level 25 or higher, you can unlock this kingdom in the far north east of Krystara.
Meet Keghammer the Dwarf, and find out why the Giants are all at war, try out some new challenges, or turn in those keys you’ve been saving to see if you can get the 6 new troops of Stormheim.
NOTE: There is a minor glitch in some iOS versions of the game which fails to show the Stormheim Shield on Stormheim Troop Cards. This is fixed in 1.0.5.
EVENT: Gathering Storm
We’re off to Stormheim. As well as the 6 troops you can get in game from Keys, we have a seventh Stormheim troop only available with Glory! Earn Glory every day you log in, based on your PvP/Invasion Ranking! This event will run for 2 weeks (until Monday 16th February 2015).
- * Frost Reaver (60 Glory): A new epic weapon, straight from the icy-cold forges of the Frost Giants. Destroy columns of Gems, and deal bonus damage for each Blue Gem destroyed!
- * Ice Witch (120 Glory): A new epic troop – one of the spirits of the fjords. She can be a powerful ally, not necessarily destroying your enemies, but instead increasing your own Magic skills!
We have a whole heap of troops getting their balance tweaked in minor ways in preparation for 1.0.5, and we’ve set them loose upon you a little early!
Lots of Common, Rare and Ultra Rare troops have received some changes, mostly buffs, to help with our Arena Mode in 1.0.5 (but more on that later). There’s also a ncie tweak to Orion, with a further update to that coming in the actual 1.0.5 update.
NOTE: Any troops/weapons listed as doing random amounts of damage (e.g. 3-8 points), require an update to the game. They will continue to do a minimum of 1 point (e.g. 1-8 points) until 1.0.5 actually releases.
Don’t forget, your PvP ranking is reset back to 15 today, and you are given some Souls. The number of Souls depends on your PvP Rank, and is listed below
- * Rank 1: 200 Souls
- * Rank 2: 100 Souls
- * Rank 3: 80 Souls
- * Rank 4: 60 Souls
- * Rank 5: 50 Souls
- * Rank 6: 40 Souls
- * Rank 7: 35 Souls
- * Rank 8: 30 Souls
- * Rank 9: 25 Souls
- * Rank 10: 20 Souls
- * Rank 11: 16 Souls
- * Rank 12: 12 Souls
- * Rank 13: 8 Souls
- * Rank 14: 4 Souls
- * Rank 15: No Souls for You!
We may tinker with these rewards in future, just keep in mind we have a bunch more ways of getting souls coming – one of them today… the Valkyrie! AND please note these souls are NOT boosted by Armor (the same as all Daily Reward Gold is not boosted by Armor). Only rewards that are an immediate result of a battle gain the Armor boosts.
