Good stuff this week. I wished the characters of the two troops were switched, 'cause Zhaks art is pretty fun and flashy while Grimlet looks like a really boring and bland depiction of dwarf stereotypes, and Grimlet is the one that people might keep playing after this week, but you can’t have it all.

I see it more like on the same level of properly designed mechanics/effects/sinergy inside and outside his own kingdom. It’s just that the other Empowered Converters lack some fine adjustments and extra effects to become as reliable as Mercy and him.

Add “hot” to this sentence and sell a T-Shirt to @Saltypatra. :slightly_smiling_face:

I have visions of a photoshopped Yoda holding a coffee mug: “If hot brown not… Drink down do not”.

Weapon is basically a anti-dawnbringer, and still weak at that.
Troops are nice

OP OP OP OP lol.

I mean, I’d say its about a tie with Mercy, but… that’s OP soooo…

Enrage on one ally vs Cleanse on all allies. But the Cleanse is reactive instead of proactive.

If it’s hot and brown, flush it down.

Ooh… new stuff… and one isn’t rubbish…woohoo cheesy dwarf meta here we come🤔

You know what would have been nice? Yellow/Brown Arcane’s and not Red/Yellow’s again! SERIOUSLY! Pyggra was the last Red/Yellow and that wasn’t too long ago… Pure PvP mission this week as well which means pure hell since they also nerfed amount of points you get from winning PvP matches.

Battlecrasher event is also laughable… 50 souls? Really? That’s for a very strong and tanky imp as well who can transform your troops (Need I say anything about the problem’s it causes? Especially in PvP? Gnomes can still appear in PvP which also sucks…)

Overall, not a fun week.

Finally, Khaziel week is here. Great chance for me to get Stonehammer, the last Mythic I don’t have. (except Zuul’Goth)

So far though, 400 event keys still aren’t enough to get him. Although, I have the whole week to try my luck! ^^ (If Friday’s Mythic resource doesn’t extent to my Glory hoard, that is)

Great artwork devs :+1:

Joking aside, Spooky Imp are so common today, but 50 souls seems to be the only drop. Hardly useful for mid-end gamers, but I think early players might really appreciate it for that extra souls to craft Dawnbringer.

Also, like Gnomes, they are based on stats of the troop it replaced, so most of the time, it actually make the match easier.

In news or events in-game, it just says 50 souls.

I can’t find any info on the Spooky Imp event in terms of how long it will be. Hopefully not the whole week. He’s in almost every battle I’ve had. I’ve been trying for a Pet gnome for a few hours. No dice.

This battlecrasher event could have been used in another fashion:

  • The spooky Imp could drop some thematic loot like candies, which could also be reused in other event with a special Piñata enemy, every Spooky Imp could drop 1 ~ 4 candies.
  • The candies could be traded for certain prizes in a special “Shop” active only during such events. For example, 20 candies for 100 glory, 50 candies for 50 diamonds…
  • For game economy reasons the devs could limit the number of purchases of certain items. Also we should be able to buy candies using Gems as some of the biggest prizes in this special shop could be very expensive (In candy currency) and something unique like a Pet, a Weapon or an Avatar item like a Witch’s Hat, Skull Mask, Pirate Eye-patch (Halloween has a dress-up theme in general so cosmetic items would make more sense)…

Now back at the weekly event. At least the Stone Aegis has an extra effect works nicely outside the very restrict enemy type of it’s event. Ice Aegis should be improved to be on a similar level.
