Some of the bugs fixed in this update include the following:
- Fixed issue single kingdom tributes not displaying correct glory earned (this was a visual issue only).
- Fixed issue where Emperor Khorvash’s spell would stun and mana drain 3rd troop if first or second troop died. (This fix should also apply to other troops such as Scorpius and Kraken who had similar issues).
- Fixed issue where Guild Wars defence teams were not saving correctly.
- Fixed issue where viewing Hero on Guild Wars defense team would show weird troop card.
- Fixed an issue where the Hero Avatars was clipping over the top of the puzzle card.

- Other bug fixes and improvements
- Guild Wars Battles counting as losses
- First 3 characters of Chat input disappear behind camera on iPhone X (when camera is on the left side) – This is an issue with the iPhone X, so we can’t fix this but rotating the iPhone so the camera is on the right is a temporary workaround.
- Cleanse particle effect doesn’t trigger when you cast a cleanse spell (works correctly when troop cleanses status effect naturally)
- Claim Button can appear incorrectly for mail items that don’t contain rewards
- Tick in guild roster always shows on Level icon after re-opening the filter
- After leaving/ disbanding guild, the Guild options still show as “Enter Guild” or “Fight Guild Wars”. (Workaround: Select “Enter Guild”, you will receive error message. Close error message and select Guild button, to create/ join a new guild)
- Level Up screen background can be distorted on lower quality devices
- Ring of Wonder + Legendary Troop bundle won’t be available until around the 18th December on PS4 (we’re waiting on final approval from Sony)
- Team banner/name does not update immediately after changing team banner/name in the troops screen and going back to the Guild Wars Defense tab
- Game crashes when player wins 6+ battles in Arena during the troop offer screen. (Fixed for now… though troop offers will be disabled until a fix can be put out in the next client update, so players can continue to earn seals from arena without this issue affecting them).
- Game doesn’t display when the next skill point level is, unless the player gains skill point from levelling
