Classic Hero Costume Update

Sep. 5, 07:00 UTC –

A new batch of Costumes has been ordered for these beloved Classic Heroes! The following Heroes will now have TWO Costumes to choose from (in addition to their original form). Please note that the new Costumes will become obtainable from 2022-09-05, 07:00 UTC onwards.

  • Legendary
    • Elkanen
    • Khagan
    • Isarnia
    • Obakan
    • Vivica
    • …and more to come!
  • Epic
    • Kelile
    • …and more to come!

Maximum Costume Bonus values when two Costumes are fully maxed:

  • +15% attack
  • +15% defense
  • +20% HP
  • +5% mana generation

Please note:

  • Summoning a Hero from the Costume Chamber will now give you ALL Costumes of that Hero. If you successfully summon one of these Heroes who now have two Costumes, you will obtain BOTH Costumes (as well as the “base” Hero, of course).
  • The new Legendary Classic Hero Costumes will also be added to the pool of Legendary Costumes obtainable through the Hero Academy. Unlike the Costume Chamber, the Hero Academy will only produce ONE Costume at a time. Obtaining one of these Costumes via retraining will NOT provide that Hero’s “other” Costume.
  • The Masquerade event has been reworked. The quest will now feature more stages, new bosses, and new rewards.

[NEW ITEMS & FEATURES]

  • New type of token
    • Added only for Player Support purposes (unobtainable through gameplay)
  • Royal Goblin Balloon
    • Keep an eye out for these elusive contraptions!

[BALANCE ADJUSTMENTS]

  • Mitsuko can no longer block mana reduction effects from Ice element Heroes’ Minions
  • Myztero now also memorizes whether a status ailment was uncleansable
    • Previously, all status ailments cast by Myztero were cleansable

[IMPROVEMENTS & FIXES]

Improvements

  • Improved rewards for best-performing players in Three Kingdoms Wars
  • Japanese localization text categorically reviewed and revised
  • Removed the cap on the amount of Heroes that can be used to train (level up) a Hero
    • Previously, only 10 Heroes could be selected at a time
    • Please don’t try to train with more than 1,000 Heroes at once
  • Reworded some text in the “building already in progress” pop-up for accuracy
  • Reworded some text in the “Kemythian City” stage property description for clarity

Fixes

  • Anton’s Special Skill (x1 Mana Charge) now correctly reads “all hit enemies”
    • Previously written as “all enemies” despite actually functioning as “all hit enemies”
  • Cap set for the amount of Troops that can be “locked” (designated as a Favorite)
    • Previously, there was no cap; the new cap is 500
  • Costume Finley’s Special Skill animation now properly “chains” again
  • Fixed (again) a visual bug in which the Berserk icon would not disappear from An-Windr or Gullinbursti in Challenge Event battles if their Special Skill was reflected by an Elemental Barrier
  • Fixed a rare visual bug that would occur at the very beginning of a battle when the initial board reshuffling due to a lack of matches immediately led to a cascade and took down an enemy Hero purely through Troop (tile) damage
  • Fixed a visual issue in which the Spreading Poison icon would not properly display on a Hero if that Hero had been inflicted with “normal” Poison, and Spreading Poison overwrote it
  • Marie-Thérèse (boss enemy) now correctly has an Elemental Barrier in the Challenge Festival
  • Master Trainer Heroes no longer obtainable through unintended avenues
  • Master Trainer Heroes now give the correct amount of experience when used on Costumes
  • Path of Valor icon now properly displays [!] when there are Event Challenge points to collect
  • Path of Valor rewards no longer incorrectly described as Starter Pass rewards in the Recent Activity Highlights view
  • Side buttons (e.g. the Path of Valor icon) can no longer “cover” building UI buttons (e.g. the Barracks’s “Troops” menu) and make them untappable
  • Udjat Eye (amulet) no longer causes Special Skills that only affect allies to incorrectly play animations atop enemies
  • UI text on Food and Iron bars now correctly update when switching in-game languages
  • UI will no longer display the wrong window when attempting to view a Raid Tournament opponent’s Alliance under certain circumstances
