This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the new “Slayers of Fell Shadows” Challenge Event
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.
A new challenge event = new heroes…

As with the Villains & Starfall heroes, the Slayer heroes have a bonus when they are used in the Slayers of Fell Shadows challenge event.
- Heroes of the Slayers family bypass the Elemental Barriers, and have increased attack, defense, and health (+20%) in this Challenge Event’s stages
- This bonus ONLY applies to Slayers Family Heroes IN the Slayers Event.
- It is NOT limited to Unique heroes only… Any and all Slayer heroes gain the bonus stat boost.
A new Event effect added to Slayers if Fell Shadows is this:
Old description Each time you use an item or a Special Skill, the Rage of Enemies grows, increasing their damage! When the Rage is at its peak all enemies recover health and all their status ailments are cleansed at the beginning of their turn. The Rage dwindles when you don’t use items or Special Skills during your turn, The backwards arrow indicates that the Rage is about dwindle.
This is not mentioned in the description, but here are my notes about these:
- The damage is increasing with 15% each time when you use a Battle item or Special skill.
- The “peak (maximum) of the Rage” is 75%
and about 10% health is recovered for the enemies at this point at the end of the enemies turn
As with all other challenge events, the Slayers of Fell Shadows comes with it’s own Summon Portal. See below for information regarding the appearance rates.
Rare Classic Hero: 53.1%
Epic Classic Hero: 19.8%
Legendary Classic Hero: 1.5%
Rare Trainer Hero: 10.0%
Epic Trainer Hero: 1.0%
Rare Event Hero: 7.9%
Epic Event Hero: 5.7%
Legendary Event Hero 1.0%
Legendary Hero of the Month: 1.3%
This is the same portal set-up we saw for Starfall Circus. There are STILL NO CHANGE to the event hero odds from any of the otehr Challenge Event Heroes.
The 11% odds needed for the Trainer Heroes has come from Rare Classic & Epic Classic Heroes

Table Below compares Starfall odds to other event portal odds:

The “Slayers iof Fell Shadows” 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.
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.
|5 days||Blue||10 per difficulty|
Note: Info is beta so may change…
The Slayers of Fell Shadows follows the the usual set-up for Challenge Events with 3 difficulty tiers (Rare, Epic & Legendary); It is however, Like LoV and Starfall Circus, using the old format of only 10 Stages for each tier.
