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

I didn’t think people paid attention to my title.

Yes, the Chupacabra is coming, and sadly it is not from the Vale - even though most of its food lives there…

Since I’m curious what other people think of them, I’m going to show off some of my favorite graphics for upcoming spells.

And Now, A Story…

[details=Click to Read]There once was a feared and fierce dragon without equal…

The monstrous reptile rampaged and destroyed anything that stood in it’s path…

There were those who banded together and attempted to fend off the terrifying creature…

This was met with… less than optimal results…

Can such a beast possibly be slayed, or will all that oppose it meet the same fate?

The End…?[/details]

Looks like there is a patch in the works at the moment (see current issues with Steam / world data problem) so we might get updated info once that comes out properly.

Any info on traitstone requirements for the new classes?

Too many…

Good news for all the complainers. Stonehammer changed to also “Create 15 Red and Brown Gems”, and for that his cost was raised to 24.

Stonehammer sounds good now, i like that in addition to the gemspawn they also let him affect all enemies now and not 3 random.
Tesla seems really really strong now, looking forward to her.
I don’t get the Elemaugrim nerf tbh, he didn’t seem too strong before imho, but whatever.

Thanks for keeping us informed @yonizaf, much appreciated.

Deathly Aura still has not been changed, then?

No visible changes to Hero classses yet. Still, changes can be made at the last minute, as they just did with Stonehammer.

Now is Elemaugrim’s Darkness too close to Shadow Dragon’s Darkfall…

Worth noting that though Telsa and Garuda are giving the same increased stats as Wulfgarok and he’s rarer than they are, Wulf is giving stats with higher face value in dual offensive stats.

I know it can be overwhelming for the devs with all the suggestions and complaining we sometimes do (along with the headaches of releasing a new game mode), but I just wanted to commend them for listening to us on this. This is an excellent change.

I’m impressed with how responsive the devs were to our worries about this mythic. Not just that, but I head that they’re adding changes like randomizing pvp traitstone rewards, etc. This is great.

I like this spell. Adds a new strategy / thought process when playing that’s a bit different than normal. True damage boosted by enemy armor gives an incentive to avoid damaging their armor while at the same time the ally-armor boost gives an incentive to not allow the AI to take skulls. Since you want to avoid both the AI and your own troops taking skulls, there’s now an incentive that’s not normally there to remove them. Might be interesting to use with some of the troops that remove skulls from the board like Finley, Zombie, etc

Yeah, sadly only seems to work when there is a whole bunch of people complaining. Giants and Wargare don’t seem to have big enough of a lobby to make this process work for them :wink:

Which is weird, 'cause you’d think that any lobby for giants would have to be big, if not huge.

I’m less impressed… the spell is still underwhelming… the traits are a nice combo, if unoriginal…

The boost to gem creation for burning enemies feels weird now that the color changed and the trait no longer burns. Maybe another change incoming?

So what Arcanes will be needed for the DeathKnight, Titan and Oracle Hero classes to be released soon? I think it’s Dark for the DeathKnight.
