Release Notes

  • Goblin Balloon added:
    • Collect Goblin Crates from Wanted Missions to make the Goblin Balloon appear over your base
    • Purchase collected items or recycle them for loot
    • Available from Player Level 10
  • Legends Summon changes:
    • Current Hero of the Month is available in the Legends Summon
    • Featured heroes added to the Legends Summon
  • Balance Changes:
    • Vela: Direct Damage decreased from 150% to 130%. Deals extra damage against Fire removed. All Fire enemies get -34% attack for 4 turns changed to All enemies get -34% attack for 3 turns. Water damage duration decreased from 4 turns to 3 turns, damage per turn stays the same.
      • Vela’s Extra Damage damage against Fire enemies and attack decrease to Fire enemies are both powerful skills and together they are an extremely powerful combination when used against Fire heroes. When used together with green heroes as tanks (most notably Telluria) the combination of Vela with them is overwhelmingly powerful. With his change, we want to address this combination while making Vela more useful when playing against enemies of all elements.
    • Skadi: Direct Damage increased from 170% to 220%. Increased damage per dead enemy decreased from 70% to 50%.
      • Change made so Skadi can destroy most minions with their Special Skill.
    • Baldur: Added 150% Direct Damage to a random target. Direct Damage done at the end of each turn when Baldur has boosted health increased from 110% to 150%.
      • When used Baldur feels a bit underwhelming. Direct Damage to a random target added and damage when Baldur has boosted health increased to give them bit of a boost.
    • Norns: Direct Damage increased from 265% to 280%.
    • The Hatter: Direct Damage increased from 370% to 400%.
    • Sargasso: Direct Damage increased from 355% to 385%.
    • Khagan: Direct Damage increased from 320% to 360%.
      • Direct damage for The Hatter, Sargasso, Norns and Khagan has been increased to be better aligned with damage amounts of other special skills doing damage to similar targets
  • Other Changes:
    • Additional damage in Guardian Gazelle, Hansel, Gretel, Pixie, Gullinbursti and An-Windr’s specials is now displayed as the exact amount of damage being dealt
      • The damage dealt by Guardian Gazelle, Gullinbursti and An-Windr’s specials is no longer affected by the enemy’s defense. The amount of damage dealt has been rebalanced for each hero
      • Season III Province 7 Stage 10’s balance has been adjusted due to the change in how An-Windr’s special’s damage is calculated
      • The amount of damage dealt by Hansel, Gretel and Pixie is not affected by this change, only displayed differently
  • Quality of life improvements:

    • Fixed an issue where Stonecleave would not enter ghost mode if he would be killed on that turn
    • Fixed an issue where your team defaulted to team 1 after playing Tavern of Legends
