      • Contest of Elements Event Heroes can be used up to 5 times
    • Battle Item capacity is doubled
    • Unique rules for this event:
      • All shields on the board — regardless of element — will release HOLY Troops when matched

        • Gives some amount of mana to all of your Heroes
      • Matching HOLY Shields:

        • Zandria
      • Super Elemental Family Bonus: At the end of each turn, for every ally (including this Hero) that shares this Hero’s element, one shield of this Hero’s element turns into a Power Gem. A Power Gem will deal damage to a random enemy each turn until matched. Power Gems do not fire on the turn they spawn. New Power Gems will not spawn if there are already 5 Power Gems of that element on the board.
