A New Mythic Approaches - Stonehammer

New Mythic Troop: Stonehammer

Some Gods have existed since before time began.
Some are the children of those Gods.
Others ascended to Godhood, after noble and heroic, or foul and diabolical, deeds.
While some have unwittingly had Godhood thrust upon them.

And then there’s Stonehammer - he just refused to die.

At the battle of Khazdorin Peak, when his whole clan was slain, he refused to give up until every last Orc lay dead.
In the great Forge-Explosion of Dwarrow Deep, he refused to let the fire burn him or the rock crush him, as he clawed his way from the rubble.
When his time as King of Karak Khaziel was over, he refused to lay down on his bier to go and meet his ancestors.
And, finally, when Death came seeking him, he kicked Death fair and square in the nuglets, and went on his way.

After that, his exploits became the thing of legend; not the type of stuff that earns you a shot at divinity, mind you, just a lot of… attention

For example…
They say he once made fire in far north by rubbing 2 icicles together.
That he once threw a bomb that killed 50 Orcs… and then it exploded.
That a Sand Cobra once bit him on the leg, and after 5 days of excruciating pain, the Cobra died.
That he invented the giraffe by delivering an uppercut to a wild horse.
That he once punched the Cyclops between the eye.
And that he once cooked one minute noodles in 15 seconds.

It’s entirely possible, at that point, the Gods looked down and decided he was making them look bad, so the next thing you know… BOOM! He’s the God of the Dwarves!

Quality back story as always Sirrian! Liking the ninja buff as well, could be really useful

Well that’s not nice. Tempting us with the new Mythic while our seals and tasks are still fubared. :frowning:

True, but I’m guessing this was written ahead of time, and just setup to automatically go out at 5pm AEST today. So at the time of writing the issues with guild seals and tasks was not known.

lol good point but it’s still mean! Mean ol’Sirrian! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Confirming that Stonehammer is in chests, while Nim did pull him, I’ve seen RiverSong get it as well, so I guess people can go and use their keys if they want :stuck_out_tongue: (Since some people like waiting to confirm that they’re in chests before blowing keys)

Well, I got Stonehammer. And it only cost me 508 gem keys, 3138 glory keys, 10000 guild seals and 3150 gems… :frowning:

i really wanted to open all those guild chests “this thime” before i try to get the mythic from other means…

ive been holding my seals for few months now ! QQ (sometimes i forgot, sometimes i didnt wait for 40k and sometimes 40k was not reached) and since guild wars are incoming i want to ascend my guardians too… (but not gonna loot guardians outside of mythic exclusive 40k chest period coz of limited resources to play with…)

You should still get a chance to spend them.

thanks :grin: allright time to fire up onto the new mythic

And the next mythic troop to blow a month load of ressources on to not get it… please just scrap guildwars already and directly proceed with the crafting patch, this is just too frustrating.

@Sirrian @Nimhain I just wanted to thank you guys for listening to us and buffing this mythic pre-release :smiley::+1: I have high hopes for it, as you know from my constant “feature request” threads asking for more dwarves and dwarf hero class, hehe :laughing:

As I’ve said previously Khaziel is on our list for Kingdom Rework (Grosh-Nak is higher at the moment though). We’ll probably include other dwarves in that as well (like Keghammer and Dwarven Slayer).

…1k seals, 2153 glory keys, 688 gem keys, 35000 glory, and 7200 gems later…

He finally arrived. :triumph:

Apparently the chance to get mythic dwarf is really low.

… You’re going to hate me for this… but it’s RNG unfortunately. 150 odd glory keys, 50 odd gem keys… nothing. 10 VIP keys… got one.

Congrats on getting him though!
