🧪 Early Information on Round 5 of Season 3 Hero Costumes [Part of The Beta Beat v58]

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 Round 5 of costumes for Season 3 (Valhalla) heroes.


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.

Nope, removed. I forgot to remove it, when I have copied this from normal Alfrike.

what are their Aether Skills?

Another wonderfully inspired pair of costumes. I am in awe of their ability to commit to this balance update by leaving the originals near untouched.

These costumes are so sad, why make them if they are nearly the same as base hero.

and thats a big buff

While I completely agree with your statement overall, I feel heroes dont need their skills updated as much, if they were already efficent and strong before. Added costume bonus will make them relevant again. Bera and Alfrike with costumed bonues and minor adjustments are very relevant.

In case of weaker heroes and/ or bland specials, new skillset is very welcomed. :slight_smile:

You are right, but I still would like to see something different.

For example Bera blocking buffs instead of minions.

Or Alfrike that hit selected target +3 random enemies with her cubes.

Why oh Why are all the newer costumes so uninspired and boring (and exactly the same)

Piling on here, but…

I had to look at the originals to even figure out how the costumes differed…

Too much time dedicated to the new events is what I like to keep repeating because the new heroes at least have something new and interesting going on. Meanwhile, secondary costumes for S1 heroes and all these costumes for the Map/Story heroes (and maybe even a few other events, like Seasonal and Challenge) just get a copy-paste and adjusted stats and they move on.

Practically going in the direction that they just “look” different but don’t “feel” different.

Wow. This is the worst pay for a buff yet. Sheez, how original :man_facepalming:

Hello Almost-Average Alfrike! She will be 10.7tiles with 20% mana troops + Costume 5% + Paladin mana node.

With her AA Passive, she will be even more formidable during Rush.

And will have more utility during normal matches.

So much for Zynga’s official stand on reducing reliance on opening boards.

My thoughts exactly :sweat_smile:

I was expecting Bera to be more like Kvasir & his costume. Alfrike is going to charge quicker , be even more devastating !!! & we gotta pay for the privilege !!! It’s hilarious !! The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing as the saying goes !!!
