(!) Spoiler Alert (!) -- [Any Details Provided are Subject to Change] (Part 1)

It could also be elemental. But that would be week 3 with a boost to elementals

I don’t think any of that deters them. They’ve doubled and even tripled up on stuff like that before if they saw fit.

I guess what I’m saying is I don’t expect the Devs to arbitrarily say “oh, we can’t boost elves, we just did that a couple of weeks ago”.

OK…Diff time!

Changes observed in game files:

  • All of Suncrest troops have now gained a spell, and some have gained traits…

  • Next (after Suncrest) kingdom’s troops appeared. They are currently slated for 2017-05-26. Only troop and spell names are currently available, not even colors are set properly (they’re all mono-red regardless of rarity).

  • Release schedule after new kingdom is shifted forward by one week to fit the new kingdom.

  • May’s mythic gained a third trait, and June’s mythic appeared.

  • Full spell and trait info for the new GW troop rewards.

Full details will follow later, or per request, as that’s a lot of info. In the meantime, behold next week’s troop:

Can I get the information on May’s mythic? It may be the first time I go fishing on release day – unless Stonehammer gets a serious upgrade.

I’m right here with you matey. Dragon mythic is making me salivate

It doesn’t have a spell for now, so it’s impossible to tell how good it is yet.

Still, here’s all available details for future mythics (Though Stonehammer did not change, I put him in as well for completeness sake).

Ooh I’ve wanted that combo for a while…

Conflagration, maybe?

Oh boy, get ready for even more Courage teams on PVP. :fearful:

That’s… alarming and depressing…

If Aspect of Courage was +1 Attack instead of +3, this would not be nearly as much of a problem; Courage would still be by far the most useful guardian, but it wouldn’t be as extreme as at present. Not sure what the reasoning is behind leaving the trait as-is for so long.

While we may touch on Courage later, we are unsure if he is just a symptom of the Bone Dragon problem. Once the Bone Dragon change is released with 3.0 Patch, we will be reviewing the guardians.

Please just compare Courage to Loyalty…

Making a skull attack will (in general, very roughly) trigger at least as often as casting a spell… and both can be set up tactically to happen more often.

On trait effect:

  • Loyalty gives +2 Life/Armour (+4 ‘face value’ in the old measures)
  • Courage gives +3 Attack/Life (+9 'face value)

Surely they could at least be the other way around, as in Loyalty has +3/+3 and Courage +2/+2. That puts both to a +6 ‘face value’…

(not to digress too far into my views on Guardians balance, sorry)

Back to spoilers:
@yonizaf did you mean to include

…with Captain Skullbeard? I assume he’s legit for next week?

He is. That’s just a standard disclaimer so people don’t think it’s posted by a dev and complain when it changes (apparently a thing). I was asked by a dev to make sure people don’t think my images are official, especially if I post them without a spoiler tag.

If you have a better suggestion for how to say that, that would be great. I’m not a native English speaker, so these things happen and I’m open to feedback.

Maybe it’s fine, it just confused me… but I see what you mean.

I don’t want people to get confused. Are you sure you can’t think of any way to improve on that?

You could write:
This spoiler image is fan-assembled from draft game content, and not officially sanctioned by the developers.

That’s a bit long, especially if I also want to include it in the image itself.

For now I think I’ll go with: “This spoiler image is fan-assembled from game files, and UNOFFICIAL.”. Is that clear enough? Or more improvement needed?

That sounds perfect to me.

If you want to go full-on grammar Nazi, make it “and is UNOFFICIAL” at the end so the two phrases have the same structure.

That’s clear to me.
