Patch Notes (06.05.21) Update 4.20


i

This update includes a big batch of new content to play through, along with some changes to existing features and some Champion balance changes. Here’s everything you need to know:

183 New Progress Missions

Split across 3 new Parts, these 183 Missions will test your Champions across many areas of the game - including the Clan Boss, the Doom Tower, Tag Arena, and the Campaign - as well as giving you even more reason to craft Artifacts at the Forge. If you manage to complete every Mission, you’ll also get an exclusive Legendary Void Champion that can’t be acquired any other way - Ramantu Drakesblood.

Ramantu Drakesblood

Rarity: Legendary

Type: ATK

Affinity: Void

Faction: Lizardmen

Ramantu Drakesblood also brings an all-new debuff - [Block Passive Skills] - that prevents Passive skills from working, which is sure to throw a wrench in the works of many common Raid teams.

Aura - Increases Ally Accuracy in all Battles by 60 

We’ve also renamed the existing [Block Cooldown Skills] debuff to [Block Active Skills].

[Block Passive Skills] debuff was also added to the list of debuffs in the following Boss Passive Skills - meaning many Bosses will already be immune to this debuff:

  • Almighty Immunity - for most Bosses.
  • Invincible Scales - for the Magma Dragon.
  •  Otherworldly - for the Eternal Dragon.

New Dungeon Stages

We’ve added 5 tough new Stages to every Artifact Dungeon and Potion Keep except the Minotaur's Labyrinth. The Bosses on these Stages have been given additional Passive Skills: Almighty Strength and  Almighty Persistence. These higher Stages will provide a tough challenge to overcome for those of you that have already conquered the Dungeons, but the rewards will be well worth it. We're excited to see all the new strategies that will be discovered along the way.

Champion Al fixes

  • Siphi the Lost Bride will now use the Whirlwind Romance skill on the Clan Boss.
  • Tyrant Ixlimor will now use the Hellfire Torrent skill on the Clan Boss.
  • Shatterbones will now use the Hail skill in the Fire Knight’s Castle.
  • Scyl of the Drakes will now use the Wingbeat Flurry skill when it’s not on cooldown and there are 2 or more enemies alive.
  • War Mother will use the Mother's Touch skill on Bosses if they are under [Bomb] debuffs.
  • Mountain King will now use the Regal Force skill if there are targets under [Block Damage] buffs.
  • Warlord will no longer use the Orcish Rituals skill on the Clan Boss.
  • Robar can now use the Wild Swing skill even if only one target is alive.
  • Tayrel will now use the Humble skill if the Fire Knight’s shield hasn’t yet been broken, but will no longer use the Preemptive Strike skill on the Clan Boss.
  • Elenaril will no longer use the Combust skill if there are no targets under [Poison] debuffs.
  • Zavia will no longer use the Deadly Catalyst skill if there are no targets under [Poison] debuffs.
  • Maneater will now use the Syphon skill on Skavag in the Spider’s Den.

Utter crap release so far - the new stages in dungeon are not worth it - more energy, takes more time, you still only get 5-6* and blues.  Useless. Almighty Strength is bugged - affecting skills that deal all damage from poisons 

Champ changes - useless.

Overall release - Useless.

Fixes that could make the game actually better 

- Arena (ignore for over a year now)

That's not a bug. 10 debuffs is the debuff cap for CB. You can't have anymore than 10 of ANY debuff on him at once.

no the problem is that he doesnt use his hp brun if the cb is full, he just uses his a1 and the next turn when hp burn and ally protect are up and you would need the ally protect he uses his hp burn (if the cb is not again full) and your team rips because the missing ally protect

Agreed, except for the passive - stated from the start it affects bombing poisons too.

Out  of  curiosity why  in  the  *#%€  did  they  make  D24  more  beneficial  to  farm  than  D25?  I  mean  d21-25  is  pretty  atrocious  what  they  did  with  drop  rate  increases...is  it  possible  to  ever  get  a  recording  of  the  round  table  discussions  for  these  types  of  game  "improvements" ?  I'd  love  to  see  how  many  people  it  takes  to  ensure  these  patches  give  zero  benefit  to  the  player  base

Changing  the  enemy  max  hp  on  the dungeon bosses  is  absolute  trash.    We  spend  time  a  resources  on  these  champs  then  they  become  basically  useless  especially  on  spider.  Now  its  just  all  hp  aoe  burn.    F  off

so i barely ever post on any forums. BUT i decided to take the time to post this because i am very grateful that the AI on Zavia and Elanaril got fixed to not use the poison explosion when theres no poison debuff. THANK YOU for finally fixing that. 

I got both those champions a looooong time ago and that always drove me insane that theyd immediately use that attack on their first turn. i can finally run them on auto with a bit more confidence in my team.

Why are missions to 3 star nightmare campaign levels retroactive, but not the missions right before those to complete those levels? If I 3-starred a level then I obviously completed it. 

Yes, we've noticed that issue, it's likely a bug. We're planning to fix it in one of the next updates

"Zavia will no longer use the Deadly Catalyst skill if there are no targets under [Poison] debuffs. "

In spider's den Zavia stopped using Deadly Catalyst unless one of the minions have poison debuff. If only the queen has, she does not use it even if the queen has tonnes of poison debuffs.

It's understood that higher level dungeons need to be harder - but why take the sh*t easy way out by nerfing a set of abilities (MAX HP) instead of actually  - you know- making it a challange?

As of now - the new lvl 21-25 in Dungeons is a joke - takes longer, more energy, and looks like the same drop rate - no matter what Plarium is saying.

Agreed, except for the passive - stated from the start it affects bombing poisons too.

Well, the thing is - if the poisons just work - then it takes off a good amount of damage.  If a skill is used to explode all the poisons - it takes off about half of what one round of poisons would do.

Makes absolutely no sense why one round of poisons would do double the damage of ALL the rounds of poisons going off...

Please add new storage space whenever you add new champions and gear.

The new missions are not clear, e.g. Beat Normal Doom Tower Level 20 on Normal : What if I have already done this when I hit the mission, does this mean I need to wait another month for the DT reset. The same goes for all new missions, it should be clearly stated which ones are retroactive.

Previously I have suggested a solution for the dupes, I repeat : We have a shrine where we can go to replace dupes, we put the dupe in and some silver (maybe shrine tockens) and we get a new random champ (at same rarity and level) out, RNG.

Problem with new missions : If I am able to do all the missions which means finishing everything in the game at top level without Ramantu, what do I need him for, what is my motivation in getting him? Just to brag about it, then it is not worth it.

We need a place for the books as well : Either a place to farm books or craft books (e.g. put 10 rare books in + silver = Epic book)

Glyphs upgrades should be free of charge. I develop 5 champions, manage to beat the FW floors, get the glyph, then RNG comes in, glyph is gone, silver is gone, it does not give me motivation to do all the work for FWs.

Having said all that, I think you are doing a great job. We complain because we want to make something we love better. Thank you.

Okay i will try to answer :) 

Regarding missions in DT you will get it counted once you pass it again using silver key. But it's not retroactive.


Regarding dupe system:

Sadly everyone waiting for dupe system. All what we can do just wait :(


Point of getting Ramantu:

Depends  on your point of view almost any champion have own usage even if not now could be useful later. Nobody force you do something what you don't want it's completely own decision do or not.


Regarding books craft sooner or later :) we will get that as well.


Regarding glyphs like everything else we have based on RNG so kinda :) you can same same about summoning champions / upgrade artifacts / roll substats and so on.


Hope i did answer for all your questions :)

new missions have arrived. new hero has arrived. Some updates were successful and worked fine. It is very difficult to maximize glyph tasks, especially when it comes to wrong tasks. This takes a long time. It would be a good improvement for us players if there is an improvement in this regard, as it gives glyphs from 4_6 above the level of 20 and consistently reaches 4. While it is not possible to maximize with a single glyph, the continuous output of 4 costs us a very long time because you would appreciate that we can enter a limited number. We'd better get 5 and 6 level glyphs at 20 levels. I hope you make improvements to us players in this regard and it will be more enjoyable if you take this into account. good job.

Can we ask for a simple quality of life improvement ? Can we make the Vault more userfriendly ? I would love to be able to click on the champion inside the vault and lookup his name, or see what his/her skill are doing. Dare I ask, be able to try on different gear as well with the fitting room and maybe equip some of them. It seems ok that the vault isn't as userfriendly then the regular room but it would be nice if we could have more option in order to figure out which champion we need to put out of the vault to train.

Thanks for listening
