Hail to the King!
A new month deserves a new Mythic Troop, and this one is from Ghulvania!
Draakulis makes a fairly capable front-line tank, being Armored, and also able to buff his Life through spell and traits. His spell scales up very nicely with Magic gained from both high-level Kingdoms & support troops, and he can outperform Crimson Bat early in a battle when he has 4 enemies from whom to steal life.
As the famous bards Goblin & Sullivan once wrote:
When I sally forth to seek my prey
I help myself in an Undead way.
I bite a few more necks, it’s true,
Than a well-bred monarch ought to do;
But many a king on a first-class throne,
If he wants to call his crown his own,
Must manage somehow to get through
More dirty work than ever I do,
For I am a Vampire King!
And it is, it is, a glorious thing, to be a Vampire King.
Draakulis will be the ONLY Mythic Troop available in chests for the next 7 days, so now is a great chance to make sure he’s on your team (after 7 days, the Horsemen will be rejoining him in chests). He is available in Glory Chests, Gem Chests (10x Chance), and VIP Chests (100x Chance, for VIP players only).
MANTICORE: He has had his mana drain reduced to a flat 7 points, and his Attack Buff now scales only from Magic, not from mana drained as well.
He was undoubtedly a little powerful for a 9 mana cost (our original costing put him at 11, but we dropped him to 9 in order to make him more attractive, since mana-drain & self-buffing wasn’t seeing a huge amount of use. He still serves his original purpose of off-tanking and nullifying enemy threats, but it should now hopefully be a little quicker and easier to recover from being manticored! He will be available for refund shortly too.
SPIRIT FOX: We buffed his (or her) mana drain by a couple of points to 7 in order to bring him (or her) in line with Spider Queen & Manticore who are all mana drainers at a 9 mana cost.
Please note this Troop is currently only available to Steam, iOS and Android versions of the game.
