CONSOLE: From the Depths

New Troop: Sea Troll

Sea Trolls must be one of the most disgusting creatures to grace the lands of Krystara.

Fortunately they don’t spend much time ON the land! Preferring the dark murky depths of the waters around Darkstone.

Imagine an Ogre with breath that smells of month-old fish, hair like decaying seaweed, skin like a moist boil ready to burst, and body odour that would make a hungry dragon retch from 200 paces. Can you imagine that? Well if you can, then THAT creature would probably still call a Sea Troll disgusting.

Nevertheless if you feel like your Green Slime needs a wingman for a party this weekend, well a Sea Troll might just fit the bill.

Please note this Event only applies to PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

Also… the next console update is drawing closer! We will likely only have 1 or 2 more of these single troop events before we start introducing multiple troops per week, so start saving that Glory, and those Keys!

We can’t, you are releasing troops every weeks :slight_smile:


#3

Thanks for the update!. Although hiding this important information at the end of a blog post, and you’re probably setting yourself to daily inquiries when consoles will get 2.0 ;). Cheers.


#4

Can’t wait!


#5

Yeah can’t come quick enough


#6

@Sirrian is it possible to know how much glory will cost the 2-3 troops bundle and what will be in the bundle? Without naming the troops. Ex 3 troop, 1 arcane for each or only for 1 troop? Minor stones?


#7

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ahead of you :wink:

Well, Sea Troll seems like a decent troop, and I could sure use some Arcane Venom traitstones, so those are the good things, but…

This is really disappointing. On the same day that PC/mobile gets their “early September” update, we’re told that we have to wait at least one or two more weeks for ours. And we still don’t know how to budget our glory until that time. I was hoping our days of feeling like a second-class citizen on the console were over. Guess not. Just disappointed is all. :disappointed_relieved:


#9

Yeah i feel like a little kid who didin’t get any gift for his birthday :slight_smile:


#10

They’ve been in control for like a month. I’m sure they’re still figuring out how to get out updates. Also, console takes way longer to get approved. And seeing as they just pushed out the mobile update I’d wait to ask questions about console for a day or two. They’re clearly scrambling to bug fix right now. Id suggest bumping this question about Glory in a couple of days if you haven’t gotten a satisfactory answer.


#11

Yeah no rush i was not expecting answer right now i know they might be busy with 2.1 now


#12

I’m sure they’re working as hard as they can, and I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But still, everybody knows it takes longer for Microsoft/Sony to approve things. Just means you have to get your submissions to them sooner.

I’m just disappointed because I literally have not spent a glory or gem key in months (other than necessary to accomplish daily tasks) in anticipation of War and the other Mythics, and I really thought they’d be here by now. To be told I have to wait even longer is rough. Oh well, I’m sure they’ll make it up to us somehow.


#13

It doesn’t work that way. Assuming they’re working on the same build, they all finish at basically the same time, and similarly go into submission at the same time. The only way it could work is if they sit on the mobile/PC build for a couple of weeks while console gets approved.


#14

If they were working on the same build, I would agree. But they’re not working on the same build. We’re trying to get caught up. Even after the next console update, we still won’t have the Guild update. And that’s fine, it would be extremely difficult to catch up wholly in a single update.

My point is that the console submission time is a known issue. It’s not something that should surprise anybody, so it’s not a legitimate scapegoat for delay. It’s just something that just needs to be factored in ahead of time when announcing timeframes for updates.

I’m not trying to be overly dramatic, I’m just saying that I truly am disappointed that I have to wait longer than expected.

Alright, enough of that. Let’s talk about happier things…


#15

How ahead is that? I’m starting to think I haven’t even begun to save :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

This is the single most important thing of the update. I actually think having them in a bundle is a really bad thing as it is impoosible to target specific troops and arcanes. Sell them individually at the same discount price


#17

It won’t be 2-3 troops in a single glory bundle. When console update goes lives, console players will start getting events like the PC/ Mobiles guys with 2-3 event glory bundles, each with a different troop and traitstones.


#18

Fantastic. Thanks for clarifying :grinning:


#19

Thanks can we get more info about this? How it work? I never played on pc
What is the price of bundle? Are we going to get some discount?


#20
