Greetings from Plarium!

We have recently finished testing a new batch of Champion balance changes, and we are releasing it today alongside improvements to the Clan Boss Rewards. As ever, we are keeping an eye on player feedback as well as game metrics to see what Champions need to be looked at and we will continue doing our best to release these balance changes frequently.

Balance

Champions



Clan Boss Rewards

  • Mythical, Divine, Celestial, and Transcendent Chests now have an improved chance of dropping Rank 6 Artifacts
  • Transcendent Chest has an improved chance of dropping a Legendary Skill Tome

Bugfix

  • Lord Shazar’s [Damnation] Skill now deals damage properly based on the number of debuffs on the Target
  • Lyssandra’s [Seep Power] Skill now properly takes the target’s Turn Meter overflow into account

Mountain King buffs are a joke. After what you guys gave Dracomorph, some of these buffs are literally insulting to those of us who own the champions you guys have decided need to be crap-tier. You guys buff Turvold and ignore Ma'Shalled? Literally insulting.

Totally agreed. Why have they asked community about heroes who need buff and just ignored this topic?

I definitely appreciate these buffs. You've done really well Plarium on a lot of these heroes like Necrohunter, Aina, Valkyrie and others I cannot personally comment on look really good.


However, the Mountain King buff is nowhere near significant enough. Please don't think about stopping at a small hp and resist buff and I hope this small buff is merely to test his damage increase from the minor HP buff. His kit needs a redesign entirely - or at the very least needs some serious utility added to his physical skills like def down, atk down, weaken, etc...

I think Plarium have really underestimated how pathetic the Mountain King base damage is across all his skills.


Ma Shallad is entirely missing from this list which many players are going to be fuming about.


Overall. Its a good start and I'm happy to see these balance changes happening now that are long overdue. Now please respond and let us know when to expect the next set off balance changes. Thanks!

ALSO - Any news on the campfire, and the locked tower on the dungeon map?



EDIT: I underestimated the HP buff on Mountain King. His base HP is now through the roof which in itself might be useable - Used to be about 21k or 22k I think and now it is about 30k. Will need to test to be sure, but since his damage scaled from HP/ATK perhaps this HP buff will grant him the extra damage he needed to be somewhat usable, although I won't hold my breath.

With all respect, this is a pretty disappointing balance update.


Apparently Plarium has decided that some champs like Malshalled should remain crap tier and not viable in any format?


If updates like this were weekly, then ok, but these updates are like 1.5 months.


At this rate if you have a crap Legendary then just forget about them - put them in box and pretend they dont exist.

Because even if they receive a 'buff'  like Errol (30% crit rate lol) , it will not fix core problem.

Meanwhile champs like Draco get buffs up the wazoo... -_-

Guess these were considered easier fixes. Champions that are not on the list right now likely need a serious rework and hence have not been finalized yet.


Looking forward to seeing how the Norog change will play out.

Marius, I sincerely think that you give virtually no importance to the opinions of your players.

This patch is a joke, on all pages of the forum minus 1 on the changes to champions, someone mentioned a black knight, even if he stopped having the + 30% deff, which is not a great buff compared to what he He makes other legendary ones, however he would make this champion playable, but you prefer to improve characters that are already quite strong and he is still completely ignored.


Edit: I just told them for you, there are 23 posts in "Champion Balance Requests Thread" that request the improvement of black knight

Lyssandra has no such skill.  Is this supposed to refer to another champion or another skill?

What about Baron and fixing his A3 that hits for less damage with 2 buffs than his A1? All you need to do is add damaged based on enemy max HP and buffs. easy fix. Do it.

So you nerfed Errol instead of buffing him That's a joke, really.


Are the people who decide these changes really playing this game?

Some of the buffs were decent. And I am going to give Infernal Baroness and Norog another go.


However....


 Mountain King will stay in my vault. Along with all my Dwarfs. As they are useless. I will wait until they are actually viable. 


Aina and Souldrinker I also have. They will also stay in my vault. Mainly due to the lack of usable space (100 slots is not enough with faction wars anymore).


Overall 5/10 for the update.

Many thanks, you spoiled Infernal Barones.

Dmg scales from Champions DEF ???

You didn't think that if there was ATK, then players have ATK set on this champion, not DEF?

Do you know how much it costs to do the whole set again?

Maybe change all champions?
