5.7 update

This Halloween we will be running a special event in Gems of War called The Soul Harvest. It will have new troops and a new mythic weapon for players to collect. Don’t miss out, because they will not be available until next Halloween!

Look out for more information closer to when The Soul Harvest begins.

  • We have added extra Daily Deals for Common, Rare, and Ultra-Rare Medals for people who have been finding the “Kingdom Track” of Daily Deals was not providing what they needed.
  • We have added extra Daily Deals for Writs, Colored Deeds, and Imperial Deeds.

We have added several new Heroic Gems in this update. Some of these we will reveal in future Campaigns or special Events.

  • We have added new ways for Players to earn Verses. Players may now encounter rare Adventure Boards or Daily Deals that will contain Verses.
  • We have made some improvements to the War Coin Daily Deals so they have a slightly higher chance of appearing.
  • The Help button on Bounty and World events will now take players to the related articles on the Help Centre.

  • We have fixed an issue where if a Mana Potion Gem is destroyed before the first turn, it would cause the AI to get the first turn.
  • We have fixed an issue that would cause the game to occasionally lock up after an explore run on consoles.
  • We have fixed an issue where Heroes and Doom troops were not being replaced by Gnomes during Gnome-a-Palooza.
  • We have fixed an issue where some Classes would not unlock correctly if their quest was completed from a Class Trial.
  • We have fixed an issue where Delve and Live Event teams were not updating correctly when Ascending Troops.
  • We have fixed a visual issue where the Guild Background was not always displaying correctly after playing Guild Wars.
  • We have fixed a visual issue for War Coin Daily Deals where the background was displaying incorrectly.
  • We have fixed a display issue for Tiered Flash Offers where the amount of stock displayed for an offer would appear to reset if a player purchased all of the available stock and then restarted the game. (Players were unable to continue purchasing after using initial stock though).
  • We have fixed a display issue for Tiered Flash Offers where viewing the reward help text would cause the offer reward icons to move.
  • We have fixed an issue where Troops with spells that can only be cast once, could be summoned in and then cast their spell again.
  • We have fixed an issue where Wyrmrun Troop original traits would cause the game to soft lock, requiring players to retreat.
    • We will update the Wyrmrun troops to have these fixed Traits sometime next week, after all players have upgraded to the 5.7 version.
  • We have also fixed an assortment of smaller issues.

This update will be available on Steam, iOS, Android, Xbox, and PlayStation.


Nice to see more ways to get deeds.


Thanks for this update - many long-requested, fantastic improvements.

… wow

bug fixes! sweet. No update info on the new trophies/achievents for 5.7?


I might actually play the game again


Would’ve been nice to get this fixed 2 months ago with it’s own patch instead of waiting to include it with this update. Campaign nearly over now.


There is a new achievement for 50k total renown


please do more tests on those new heroic gems… it feels that we were served “medium rare” fishes on our plate these days with lycanthropy and potion gem…


50 gems each? That’s a surprise considering how much real $ they were selling for on release.


Agreed, hence the post :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I wonder how rare the offers are? This was my first Arena run of the day — doing the other two now and will report back if I find more :+1:

EDIT to report no further offers rose to meet me.

That said — 200 gems for dozens of Vault Keys is a pretty good deal, and these verses might get people started on their Paloozas sooner during Gnome events if they’re plentiful enough to get four unique verses in the intervening weeks.


Wish the legendary would keep the 50% mana start for dragons as Essencia sucks… :sweat_smile:


@OminousGMan Since the Switch won’t be getting this update by Halloween will there be a way for us to get these new troops eventually?

Took too long ; more a list of shame; fix, fix, fix, the fixes were long asked for. How many glitches do we need before the next fix of a glitch ; looks like several, not promising. Fix them as arise would be better; to install player confidence. And more testing and listening before releasing content. Oh , ho hum, not likely.

Hard to say, I get on average about 10 gems per vk and 21 vks per GAP with optimal team. Majority of players would be much less I would guess. Certainly worth it though for the verses you are missing. For me that’s red and blue.

It has removed the power potion bonus in the faction battles. Before the battle is started it is there, but one the battle starts it is gone. I spent 1660 gems on power potions this morning now wasted.

Cant figure out how to upload xbox screenshots. But I have them.

That is a major bummer, very sorry to hear it :frowning:

Same here. I’m a mobile user and just noticed a huge stat difference on my troops going to delve 500 for the weekly.

It shows the stats how they are supposed to be on the menu before but when you enter the battle it never applies. There goes pure faction this week :frowning:

Also I just claimed my campaign points and gained an absurd amount from a bronze task
