🧪 Early Information on New "Sanctuary of Gargoyles" Challenge Event [Part of The Beta Beat V48]

NOTE: Please do not, under any circumstances, share IMAGES OR VIDEOS from Beta in this or any public Forum thread. Violations can cause players to lose their Beta accounts, or threads to be closed down.

This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the new “Sanctuary of Gargoyles” Challenge Event


Don’t get too attached

Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.

It’s incredibly common that features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release. That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.

So I wouldn’t get too attached to any of this — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of features to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to functionality to be made.


New Sanctuary of Gargoyles Heroes

A new challenge event = new heroes…

:circus_tent: :superhero: Gargolyle Heroes in Challenge Event

As with the League of Villains heroes, the Gargoyle heroes have a bonus when they are used in the Sanctuary of Gargoyles challenge event.

Specifically:

  • Heroes of the Gargolyle family bypass the Elemental Barriers, and have increased attack, defense, and health (+20%) in this Challenge Event’s stages

Some Notes:

  • This bonus ONLY applies to Gargolye Family Heroes IN the Sanctuary of Gargoyles Event.
  • It is NOT limited to Unique heroes only… Any and all Gargolye heroes gain the bonus stat boost.

:dizzy: Special Gameplay

There is a special event effect:

When you use a special skill or battle item, then the “Stoneskin” meter at the top increases with 10%, which has 50% as maximum.

The damage to enemies is reduced with the percent in the Stoneskin meter.
So if it is at 30%, then for example Arrows do 70 damage instead of 100, and if you use an additional arrow without waiting 1 turn without an use of a special skill or battle item, then it will deal only 60 damage.

If you reach maximum Stoneskin, then the Stoneskin buff (dropping damage to 1 buff) will be applies to all enemies, and the Stoneskin meter will fall to 0%.

(So it does not stays at maximum like the Rage meter fo Slayers of Fell Shadows event)


:game_die: Summoning Odds

As with all other challenge events, the Sanctuary of Gargoyles comes with it’s own Summon Portal. See below for information regarding the appearance rates.

Yes, you saw that right. Trainer Heroes are in this portal also (same as in Legaue of Villains). The odds tho are different from LoV portal. There is STILL NO CHANGE to the event hero odds from any of the other Challenge Event Heroes.

The 11% odds needed for the Trainer Heroes has come from Rare Classic & Epic Classic Heroes

:moneybag: Challenge Coins

The “Sanctuary of Gargoyles” makes use of the existing Challenge Event Coins currancy for summoning. It also features the Suspicious Chest’s as a rare & random monster which drops 1x Challenge Coin as bonus loot.

image

The premise of Suspicious Chests appears to be similar to the concept of Orichalcum Seadragons appearing at random during Atlantis Rises and dropping Atlantis Coins, which can then be used for Summons. One difference is that in initial testing, it appears that Suspicious Chests only drop a single Challenge Coin — but you only need 10 of them for a Summon, not 100.

It seems very similar to the rage mechanic of the Slayer event. Does it raise at the same pace?

Can you please elaborate on what this buff is?

Once again, thank you so much for the time you put in creating these threads and replying to dumb questions from annoying members like me.

6 Likes

Answer to the first question:
You can use 5 items and/or specifial skills before the meter at the top fills up.
If it fills up, then it drops to 0 after activation. (So not staying at 5 as the Rage meter).

Answer about Stoneskin buff:
All heroes have Gargoyle’s Stoneskin Passive.
That passive activates even if those heroes have not used their Special Skill.

:scream: They won’t take ANY damage?! That will be annoying as hell. :sob:

I guess this mitigates it a bit, but still. :sob:

But that drop to 1 damage is applied to the first 1-4 damages.
So you can deplete it fast with tiles
But of course it is causing delay and the opponent can kill you in that turn when you have charged heroes…

Thx, I will add it to the event’s topic.

What element reflect is this? I’m assuming red

I heard is green which surprised me.

It is green.

So… this will be “tougher” than Slayers due to the extra buffer for the enemies: Stoneskin buff.

Slowing down their activation will help then. Mana control ?

Plus Taunt to buy time.

Yes, it is green as I have written it to the OP and the V48 main thread.

If the buff is given by the hero, then mana controll can help, but if you use 5 items or special skill withinh 5 consecutive turns, then the Stage will add this buff to all Gargoyle enemies.
Maybe giving buff immunity can help, but I will try it, and let you know.

When this buff is active, then the opponents are shown is a semy-ghost form so that you can easily see that you can not really harm them.

I have missed on thing what I will add to the OP later.
Each time you use a special skill or battle item, then the opponents will get 10% less damage next time (maxumum: 50%)

The OP is now updated with all informations.

Again with the enormous S1 odds :expressionless: We’re 5 years in, these are so pointless. Even a 5* S1 doesn’t feel like a ‘win’ anymore.

5 Likes

For more seasoned players S1 heroes are nothing more than feeders for Soul Exchange. But even a relatively new player won’t be happy with Quintus when it could have been Goseck instead–and when already many 4* event heroes are better than most S1 “legendary” heroes without costume…

They could at least add the old event heroes to the S1 pool (of course without costume so that Challenge Festival will still generate enuff revenue :roll_eyes:). Then there are at least a few really good consolidation prizes and more useful heroes.

3 Likes

Agreed, I’m a new player and yet I still don’t want to draw an S1. Ascension mats are hard to come by and leveling is slow. Who would want to invest in a hero knowing that hero won’t measure up from the beginning? So they’re all food for more recent releases. I would honestly prefer 50% odds of pulling trainer heroes than ‘Classics’. At least they serve a purpose.

they have to increase the percentage of epic trainers. 1% is the same as the hero of the event. it will be very annoying if you get an epic trainer!

The epic trainer percentage was higher initially when they first added them to new version challenge events, but following the first month where there were a number of complaints from people unhappy with getting a trainer instead of a 4* hero they reduced it to what it is now.

and now they got epic trainers. then they will be more unhappy. because it equals % with 5* heroes from events :frowning:

as a good amount of players have Penolite, i can see the Legendary portion being highly contested for El Duque.
