This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on Valhalla Forever being TESTED in beta.
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.
In its simplest explanation, Valhalla Forever is essentially Atlantis Rises but for the season 3 map (Valhalla).
During Valhalla Forever, all World Energy Costs on the Season 3 map are reduced by 3.
Adds a new “special” / unique mob called a Midgard Gnome.
Unlike in Atlantis Rises:
- the loot is NOT increased
- there is a limit to how many Midgard Gnomes you can farm per day.
Like the Atlantis Seadragons, these mobs only appear during the Valhalla Forever event.
When they appear, they drop Valhalla Coins as loot… Or Emblems. Or resource bundles.
As above, there is a limit to how many Gnomes can be farmed per day.
Limited to 20 per day. This limit accumulates (so even if you only start on day 4, you can still farm 80 in that one day).
Can farm up to 80 in total during the event
There is a counter which shows how many you’ve farmed so far.
As above, all stages energy is reduced by 3 (from normal) during the event.
Like current Valhalla, the event lasts 4 days.
Valhalla vs. Atlantis
Staff have stated that this event WILL NOT replace Atlantis but will be an additional event.
There is a change to the way that the Valhalla Portal operated.
Instead of there being just the one featured hero, there are instead 3.
There was no change in the odds in Beta V35.5
Just a quick note here on the numbers. Without any change in the odds, there is virtually no difference between featured and non-featired hero odds.
Featured = 3 heroes = 0.1% Specific hero.
Non-Featured = 14 heroes = 0.0928% specific
So there is a SLIGHT difference but not much.
It has been raised and several times in the feedback provided.
