Originally published at: http://gemsofwar.com/2-0-arrives/
The wait is over, Patch 2.0 has landed! Get all the details of what’s new and what’s changed below!

PVP Rework * The PVP Menu now has 6 new menus, Ranked, Casual, Stats, Defense, Battle Log and Leaderboard. * Ranked:
  • ~ Allows you choose between 3 opponents to earn points for rankings in the weekly event.
  • ~ Ranked is played at normal difficulty with the Combo-breaker turned off.
* Casual:
  • ~ Allows you choose between 3 opponents for a fun battle that does not affect PvP points or ranking.
  • ~ Casual is played at your currently-selected difficulty.
  • ~ Casual battles have a slightly reduced reward compared to Ranked battles.
* Stats shows various stats for your PvP Career including:
  • ~ Current Tier and rewards for each Tier.
  • ~ Current Rank and rewards for with week’s event.
  • ~ Current Wins and Losses for Invades and Defenses.
  • ~ Favorite Troop for invading.
  • ~ Most Invaded Kingdom.
* The old Rank system is still around as the new Tier system (we've just renamed it, since "Rank" now applies to your position on the PvP Ladder). * Tier Rewards can be collected once when you’ve reached a new tier level. * Rank Rewards given at the end of an event are based on what rank you were when the event ended. * Defense menu works the same as before, but now displays the current progress for successful defense rewards. * Battle Log displays all of your recent battles (invades and defenses), whether you won or lost, and how long ago the battle was. * Leaderboards show both your current rank as well as the top 100 players in the current weekly event.
Summoning Improvements * Summoning is no longer limited to a cap of level 15 for troops. * Summoned troops are now limited by what level you have raised that troop to. * Summoned troops now gain any team bonuses earned at the start of battle (from Troop type or Kingdom bonuses). * Summoned troops come in with any trait you have unlocked on the troop. * Summoning changes do not apply to Arena.
Hero Profiles * We’ve added a new social feature to the game: Hero Profiles. * Hero Profiles allow you to view various information about another player in the game. * You are able to use the Hero Profile to invite players to your guild or play in a friendly battle. * Friendly battles do not give out rewards. * You can access the new Hero Profile menu by tapping on a player’s name in chat or viewing it in the PVP Menus (either from the Leaderboard or Battle Log menus).
New Kingdom * Glacial Peaks has appeared on the map to unlock. * New troops (including 2 new legendary troops) have been added to chests. * Glacial Peaks introduces a new spell mechanic: Mana Burn
  • ~ Mana Burn deals damage to an enemy based on the enemy’s current mana.
  • ~ Mana Burn does not drain Mana from the enemy.
VIP Chests * VIP Chests have had some improvements:
  • ~ If you draw an epic card, you will gain 2 epic cards insteadd.
  • ~ If you draw a traitstone you gain 2 traitstones instead.
  • ~ VIP Chests now also rewards 2000 gold for every chest you open.
Mythic Troops * Mythic troops are super rare troops that can drop from Glory, Gem, and VIP chests. * Mythic troops are the only troops with triple Mana colors. * Like Legendaries they have a unique 3rd Trait. * New Mythic Troop- War- has been added to chests.
Treasure Hunt * Red Chests no longer reward Gold * Vaults no longer reward Gold and Souls
General * Claim All button has been added to the Mail menu, allows you to claim all rewards from mail at once. * Victory and Defeat Menus has had a visual rework, and now display rewards from battles similar to Treasure Hunt mini game. * Increased security to reduce amount of hacking with the new PvP changes. * Mechanist Class’ legendary trait, Clockwork, has been added to the class. * You can now opt out of Global Chat but still be part of Guild Chat.
Troop Balance Infernal King * Immortal trait chance has been reduced from 30% to 25%


  • Mana cost has been reduced from 14 to 12
Troop Refunds * Infernal King is available for refund for 1 week.
Major Bug Fixes * Game no longer crashes when casting Soothsayer’s spell when there are no purple gems on the board. * Frenzy should no longer activate multiple times from damage. * Game should no longer end when a Troop is summoned from final troop’s Trait (such as Daemonic Pact). * On Hit Traits (Such a Great Maw’s Hunger) should not trigger on multiple troops with large skull cascades. * Hero Class Troop types should now be working correctly. Hero should now gain benefits/weaknesses from troop type spells/ bonuses. * Watcher’s Mana drain on status effect now applies to Frozen, Disease and Death Mark. * AOE Damage will now pop Barrier. * We believe we have addressed the main cause of Dust Devil crashing after casting his spell. * Fixed Mist Stalker’s spell so he should be dealing poison as intended. * Hero Class Magic bonuses should no longer apply in the Arena.
Known Issues * Gem Mastery bonus from Hero Classes is not included/ displayed on the Gem Mastery Overview screen in the Hero menu. * AI troops with Blessed and Curse are not activating correctly.

First! Haha! :slight_smile:


That’s @Sirrian!
Edit: or you know…thanks, but both work?



First only counts if you post something meaningful :wink:


My comments about some things we didn’t know until now.

Oh no… Immortal King is a thing now.

The builds with this should be interesting.

Treant - Alchemist - Valkyrie - Banshee

Still OP. Also, we’ll find something else to break. Don’t you worry. :wink:


6th comment.


I think the Banshee cost reduction makes sense. She’s much closer to Drake Rider now as a result.

Also, only 5% reduction for Immortal? That’s not nearly as big a nerf as I had expected.


8st commeNt


Yeah, that is very scary. I better not see 3x Infernal King + Mercy…


So do they not appear in Event chests?


I cry for my great maw. :wink: it was good while it lasted.


Is it up yet?


Yes… Go try.


That’s what it appears like…


Maybe stick to gifs


Maw is still extremely powerful. Cry later, when it gets nerfed proper-like.


True. It’s a beautiful card.


Valkyrie will come up SO often!
