Home > Blog > 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.

KINGDOM: Stormheim

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!

BALANCE: Troop Tweaks

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.

You can find the change list here:

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.

PvP Reset & Soul Rewards

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.

    Does Ice Witch give +1 magic to herself per kill as well? If it is, maybe change it to “all allied troops”. If not, you may want to change the wording to “all other allies” like Brian the Lucky.

      It does work on self. The wording for that may want to be tweaked a bit. Trying some builds with her right now. 😀

    Thanks, Mabbel.
    It got a bit hectic here this evening and I was a little sloppy in my editing!

    Ranks should reset when you get your next daily bonus.

    What means “boosted by skulls” in a Frost Giant’s skill?

    • alt_example

      Mabbel February 2, 2015 at 19:53 -

      This is description from kingdom preview: “deal an extra point of damage for every skull on the board.”

    So this time both the weapon and the troop are limited-time-obtainable during this event?

    Or maybe they wanted to write the event-only for the weapon (like always) just it got messed up?

    My post is quite similar to that of Vempajor’s – The first thing I looked for was ” Only Obtainable Through This Event “, which I did not see. Are we to assume all new content can be acquired through the purchase of Keys and, through the process of Leveling Mastery, eventually unlock the New Weapon? – or did this event come with Limited-Time-Rare-Items?

    Mabble says, according to the Weapon List, Frost Reaver is a Limited-Time-Weapon – so not to discredit him – but it “Should” be safe to assume this page’s info will soon reflect the Weapon List.

    Seems we are not getting any response here.

    I don’t know, I checked the troop list and it’s not written there that it’d be limited to this event only.

    This announcement is very badly written. :S

      Currently, all epic+ weapons that have ever been up for glory rewards are exclusive to that event.

      Glory troops are somewhat exclusive and are most easily attainable by just getting it during the sub-weekly/weekly event. As of recently, all glory troops are exclusive to the event for about 4-8 weeks. After this duration, they will be added to all key drop pools at a slightly reduced rate compared to other cards of the same rarity.

    Is that normal “Valkyrie” (a new troop) is getting NOTHING when leveling up from level 8 to 9? I haven’t seen empty leveling-ups before, any point of that?

    • alt_example

      They will probably fix that by giving her 1 more armor. This would make her at the same total durability as Alchemist.

        vempajor February 3, 2015 at 21:56 -

        Thanks for the info!

        Also, they should add to her description that the max souls it can earn is 21 (25 total – with the 4 normally obtained souls) per game.

          Avina has the cap too. As well as anything that ever gets bonus souls during battle.

          There are a lot of important information that, last I recall, are nowhere within the game itself. Some of these include the 105 gold cap per match, the 25 souls cap per match, all “boosted by” mechanics, how much mana each unit requires to cast, and how much mana each unit currently has. What is even worse is that the “boosted by” information exists nowhere, not even on this website.

    SO HAPPY TO GET A NEW AREA/CHALLENGES. I hope you all keep up this trend it’s great. and the Valkyrie is awesome. Using a Alch/Valk/Acolyte combo gets pretty fun, the 7-cascade jewels have been coming in much more often. Question though, why’d you change the ice-queen design/ I liked the earlier version greatly in comparison.

    Keep up the great area making/story telling,
    -B
