Spiderbait (Weekly Event Post)

New Epic Troop: Tomb Spider

The death rituals of the Dark Elven nobility of Zhul’Kari are quite bizarre. The body of the recently departed is impregnated with spider eggs and sealed in a tomb. When the spider eggs hatch they have little to eat except each other and the body itself. The Dark Elves believe the spider that remains (known as a Tomb Spider) can then carry the soul of their ancestor into the arms of the Spider Goddess.

The Tomb Spider will be available this week for 400 Glory in the shop as well as in Event Chests. After 3-4 weeks it will become available in Glory, Gem, Guild, and VIP chests as usual.

New Legendary Troop: The Widow Queen

Leader of the Dec’Tari Clan of Dark Elves, the Widow Queen is aptly named. In a ritual marriage every year, she sacrifices her partner to the Spider Goddess in exchange for magical powers and eternal youth and beauty. Mactani, the current Widown Queen is 563 years old, but doesn’t look a day over 200 - a miraculous achievement, even for an Elf.

The Widown Queen will be available exclusively in Event Chests this week, and will make her way to Glory, Gem, Guild, and VIP chests in the usual 3-4 weeks.

Both arts and pieces of lore about the rituals of Dark Elves are amazing.

Been waiting for this Legendary for awhile. I have no idea how its supposed to work in most teams, so… challenge accepted? I wonder if she could summon a copy of herself with her skill…

In the future though, could you guys include the boost ratio as part of the preview (when applicable)? Feel like that could be vital for some troops.


I also love how the Widow Queen’s spell ties in so well with her lore!

yay, another strong Legendary. :hugs:

Another crazy effect on 4 match.
Have her with Mab and Korv, and you just rule the world

In some odd Universe, I think The Widow Queen and Cedric Sparklesack are best friends/secret lovers.

Hahahahaha good one! I never get tired of these April Fool’s jokes.

So uh

I just signed up for a mail-order Zhul’kari bride and now I have some questions


Yes, you have one year to live before you are a sacrificial lamb.

Question 2?

So she’ll be in chests in 3 weeks! on the 23rd April. Woo! Saving all my keys till then. /sarcasm. Just a reminder guys it’s NEVER 3 weeks, ALWAYS 4 weeks. Don’t waste your keys in 3 weeks.

Love the Tomb Spider lore. Good job.

Ohhhh boy I just saw it was ‘all enemies’ lol.

I’ve heard that she cannot summon herself, only other Zhul’Kari troops.

She’ll be in event chests tomorrow, though, so why would you wait a month to try for her?
