:hammer: Dunes Coins

kΓ©p

The first time a Stage is completed, a reward is given in Dunes Coins β€” which are just like Atlantis/ Valhalla/Underwild Coins, but for Season 5.

Just the same as Season 2 & 3 & 4, Normal Mode Stages reward 3 Dunes Coins, and Hard Mode Stages reward 5 Dunes Coins β€” and there are 10 Stages per Province, so it’ll be the same 80 Coins per Province that Season 2 & 3 & 4 had.

Also like Atlantis/ Valhalla/Underwild Coins, 100 Dunes Coins are required for a free Dunes Summon.


:mount_fuji: Stage Properties

In Season 5 there are Stage Properties which applies to every second stage in Season 5 Map (so far).*

All enemies has got various passive abilities, which is specific to that enemy, and on a Stage or even a Wave there can be different enemies, which has got different passives.
The stage status effects are given every 5 turns to your heroes.

Stage effects are just like normal Status Effects which are mosly dispellable or cleansab;e. So they can be blocked by an Ailment Blocker (e.g. Grazul, Garnet or Vanda) and can be dispensed of by a cleanser (e.g. Rigard or Ariel).

Is β€œDynasty of Dunes” the official SGG name for season 5? When you enter the map you get a blurb about Kemyth, the Dominion of Eternal Dunes. Just wondering.

One of the people in my alliance can’t access Season 5.

They’ve told us they haven’t even started Season 4 (we were shocked, he’s level 85).

Does anybody know if that’s the reason why? Do they need to finish Season 4 on normal before Season 5 opens up for them?

Season 5 will unlock once players will reach Season 4 Province 5, SG announced in the sneak peak 2022.

Thanks for the info!! :heart:

Hi. How i can unlock season 5? Right now i’m at season 4 province 2. Thx :slight_smile:

As I recall you need to reach Season 4 province 5 in order to unlock Season 5.

Thanks for your answer. :slight_smile:

This is my first month with the season five map unlocked… Is there no discount during the Dynasty of Dunes event like there is for Valhalla/Atlantis/Underwild? Or is there a glitch today?

Discounts are only after the season is finished and there is a monthly recurring of past seasons.

Aha! So basically there’s no incentive to play Season 5 during the event unless you are in the mood? No special enemies that drop extra coins either, it seems? The only highlight is the portal being open?

Yes, it is how it works. Also, SG unlocks only 3 provinces at once, but as you just started you probably will not reach the end of the current unlocked provinces (Province 18).

Thank you, love the heroes, but I get so many Dune tokens from other parts of the game… and as a beginner, my WE maximum is so low… I’ll probably just play when I have extra WE to burn off after completing all the special quests/monster chests/etc.
