🧪 Early Information on New Slayers of Fell Shadows Heroes [Part of The Beta Beat v40]

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 initial release of the Slayer of Fell Shadows Heroes (new Ice element reflect Challange 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 Event – Slayers of Fell Shadows !!


Slayers of Fell Shadows Heroes

There are a total of ten (10) new heroes added to Beta for testing; these have been indicated to be for a new challenge event called “Slayers of Fell Shadows”.

*The names of the new heroes are: Cathal, Saiorse, Caitlín, Rian, Senan, Orla, Cillian, Aodhan, Baril, Maeve

:hugs: Family Bonus

The new heroes form the “Slayers” family and have a family bonus for each unique hero in the team:
The amounts and percents in Family bonus varies for each rarity.

Slayers Family
Bonus for 1 / 2 / 3 Heroes:

  • 50% / 75% / 100% chance to receive the following stacks at the end of each turn:
  • Stack (Max 10): The caster recovers X HP each turn
  • Stack (Max 10): The caster gets +Y% mana generation
Hero rarity Recovered HP amount Mana generation increase
Legendary 20 10 HP each turn 10% 5%
Epic 15 10 HP each turn 8% 5%
Rare 10 5 HP each turn 5%

You do not need to cast the special skill for the family bonus to activate.

Tiles need to charge

All event heroes are Slow mana speed.
The family bonus can now make such mana generation increase, which is far ahead of anything else on the game.
(Eg: Slow legendary heroes can be faster than Very fast mana speed Fast mana speed)

Even if you do not use any mana troops or buffs:

  • The mana generation of legendary heroes can be increased with 100% 50% in total.
  • The mana generation of epic heroes can be increased with 80% 50% in total.
  • The mana generation of rare heroes can be increased with 50% in total.
  • The maximum stacks can be reached in 10 turns ( or less see later in the additional notes )

Let’s summarize that how much mana generation increase is needed to charge the Slow heroes faster:

Tiles need to charge Mana generation increase Notes
12 0%
11 9.09%
10 20%
9 33.33%
8 50% Maximum stack for rare any event heroes
7 71.43% Maximum stack for epic event heroes is 80%
Might be possible with buffs
6 100% Maximum stack for legendary heroes
No longer possible
5 140% Might be possible with max stack legendary heroes, using mana troops and buffs
No longer possible

Additional notes for the stacks

  • All event heroes are casting similar HP recovery and mana generation stacks, which will be combined with the Family Bonus stacks.
  • The mana generation increase stacks given by special skills for legendary and epic heroes are less than same as what is in the Family Bonus.
  • So this means that you might not be able to reach to theoretical maximum what I wrote above if you fire the special skill.
  • The special skill of some heroes are increasing the stack size not by 1, but maybe with 2 or 3
    • Stack +2 in hero cards means that Stack is added twice (if it is not beyond the 10 limit). So the added HP regereration amounts and percents are doubled.
    • Stack +3 in hero cards means that Stack is added 3 times (if it is not beyond the 10 limit). So the added HP regereration amounts and percents are tripled.

Maybe change Baril’s name so we don’t have another Karil Kiril with Baril and Boril?

I don’t know. I’m pretty positive about this game, but am I the only one thinking “spend a lot to get these heroes and you can break the game”. These potential stacks making them extra fast scares the living hell out of me.

An event full of Irish names!!! Delighted to see Aodhan (pronounced like ayon in Crayon), but fix the spelling of Saoirse!
And I agree with the others. Baril is too close to Kiril, Boril and Karil. Why not go with Conor?

Also, would really much prefer an entire season done on Irish mythology than a makey-uppy event. You can do so so so much more than another event.

Seriously! I’ve said before! I offer myself up with all my mythological and literature knowledge for your background, research and writing! :)))))))

Also, if anyone wants to know how to pronounce some of these names, I’m willing to oblige!

Karil and Kiril, or did you mean Carol?
Always bring Ulmer to titans? Wait, you meant Almur.

And if you think the names are confusing, wait until you see the art. They are very “3D-CGI” but real human looking and in a creepy way.

At first glance I only saw slow heroes with nice stacks and thought about how they’ll be great for very fast tournies/war.

You should get rid of the family bonus with a rush attack.

Wow,… slow heroes with mana boost stack.
Passive all is 1/2 DoT… wow!

Caitlín: great another holy dispeller (only CViv and Devana currently)
Rian: blue cleanser, faster then Raffael, avarage Glenda
Senan: Dark Fiend generator (only doing damage though, not like Elizabeth)

The company is desperate to raise resources (money), it is seen in the constant promotions (which are not so good) and now the incredible amount of new heroes, it seems very strange as if they were bankrupt. Because they don’t improve the buildings and because they don’t get more heroes similar to Tarlak or Miki.

It is becoming pretty amusing and transparent now

What players really want is expensive new heroes at very low odds who break the game and make the heroes they previously spent money on to be obsolete, right Tim? And for those heroes to be released every few weeks, right Tim? Riiiiiiiight

What Tim really wants is for a diverse range of suckers around the world to pay off his Lamborghini, with the upcoming Zynga bonus payment

Who gets what they want here, I wonder?

It isn’t the Heroes who are slow, it’s the players who feed this gambling machine who are slow to catch on

What if all the players joined in a claim form and no purchases were made again for 1 month, would they go crazy and release about 1000 new heroes? he he
