Home > Blog > New Event & Mini Update: Mischief Maker

While we’re waiting for the 1.0.3 update, it’s time for a new event! This time, the Glory Rewards are new to the game! Read on to learn more!

EVENT: Mischief Maker

Sylvasi, the Mischief Maker has been seen in Pan’s Vale. He’s yours during this event for just 120 Glory! So, unless you have some Glory saved up, you better start invading those enemies! This event will run for 2 weeks (until Monday 22nd December). We’ll be switching over to weekly events some time early in the new year.

  • * Sylvasi (120 Glory): A new epic troop from Pan’s Value with new spell, Mischief, that converts gems and steals Attack.
  • * Sylvasi’s Blades (60 Glory): A new epic weapon – only obtainable from this event

New Sylvasi Cards

PvP/Invasion Rank Reset

UPDATE: No Resets will be occurring until 1.0.3 is released, due to a problem with the in-game store.

From now on, every time we have a new event, there will be a PvP Rank Reset. Don’t worry though, you’ll be receiving souls based on your current rank when the event ends. One minor glitch you will notice (or NOT notice, I guess) is that until we have the 1.0.3 Update, you won’t be notified in-game about the reset OR about the Souls. Don’t worry though – you’ll be receiving them just fine. The current soul rewards are listed below:

Rank 1: 100 Souls Rank 6: 40 Souls Rank 11: 16 Souls
Rank 2: 80 Souls Rank 7: 35 Souls Rank 12: 12 Souls
Rank 3: 60 Souls Rank 8: 30 Souls Rank 13: 8 Souls
Rank 4: 50 Souls Rank 9: 25 Souls Rank 14: 4 Souls
Rank 5: 45 Souls Rank 10: 20 Souls Rank 15: No Souls
Balancing Life Steal Troops

As many players noticed, there was a bug in some troops’ Life Steal abilities. This resulted in those troops performing far better than was intended. The actual Life Steal effect is something we can’t fix until 1.0.3 passes through Apple’s certification process, so in the interim, we’re trialling some new abilities for these guys

  • * The Crimson Bat now drains a flat amount of life – 8 Life points – regardless of how many enemy troops he hits. His damage is unchanged.
  • * Lady Sapphira got a buff and a spell rework. She now deals True damage and gains Life and Attack. She no longer destroys gems.
  • * The Vampire Lord, much like the Crimson Bat, now gains a flat amount of 4 Life.
  • * The Wight remains unchanged (we found a workaround to fix HIS spell).
Summer’s Fury Weapon Rebalanced

An exploit with Summer’s Fury was fixed by a small change to its ability (similar to what we did with the Cave Worm). Its damage now scales from Magic (and has had its base damage slightly lowered to account for this), while the number of gems it creates is now always 6.

    Dat update :D. Glad to see a new troop and weapon. Life steal is also being nerfed into the ground, so that is nice to see too given the lack of “do extra damage based on enemy HP”. My only question is what is this “workaround” for Wight? I was just about to add him to my lineup, but I don’t know if I should now given how vague that statement is. Will magic buffs still raise his lifesteal? Does he still create a flat 6 purple gems?

    Wight is working almost exactly as before.
    * 1+MAGIC damage (ignoring armor)
    * Gains 1+MAGIC Health
    * Creates 5 Purple Gems now (not 6)
    * His MAGIC skill scales from 1-4

    Note: if he is trying to “Steal” 4 Life from an enemy, and the enemy only has 2 Life, he will still GAIN the 4 Life! That might seem a little odd, but we think it’s better than the old bugged version, and we’ve reduced the Gem Creation by 1 to account for this little bonus.

    Multiplayer real-time, there are plans for this?

      I would say “distant” plans. We’ve talked about it quite a bit, but there’s a lot of other stuff we’d like to get done first. I wouldn’t expect it in the first 4-5 months that we’re released (having said that, plans DO change from time to time).

    Hi
    Gems of War is a nice little game, been playing for 24hrs.
    I liked Sylvasi’s Blades.
    It seems you plan to run events, then weapons/ character cards card no longer available.
    I would ask you please keep event cards always available otherwise this would handicap new players.
