Greetings, Champions of Teleria! Raid is constantly evolving in an aspiration to deliver new gameplay experiences, so let's take a closer look at the recently introduced changes. Moreover, we are ready to reveal something about what we are up to right now, including some long-anticipated matters. So, without further ado, let's dive straight into it.
Expanded cover of 2-factor authentication
There are a lot of people and automatic services preying on your accounts; that's why securing you from their encroachments is our paramount concern. In particular, the 2-factor authentication, previously available only on Plarium Play, with the update 4.80, has also expanded on mobile devices. If you play Raid on such a device, all you need to do is to install Plarium Play on your PC or laptop (you can find the link in the footnotes) and activate 2FA there. Done! Now your account is firmly shut behind this additional layer of protection - any attempt to log in with your credentials either at the launch of the game or from Bastion then results in a prompt to enter a security code immediately sent only to the account's owner, thus requiring their direct approval. You can find a detailed manual about 2FA on the official Plarium FAQ page: https://raid-support.plarium.com/hc/en-us/articles/4409749851794-How-to-enable-and-activate-two-factor-authentication-
Tavern UI improvements
We are preparing a bunch of improvements to facilitate the core RPG-mechanics of Raid: Shadow Legends: leveling up and gearing up your Champions. Those changes consist primarily of several UI refinements that will help sort and filter through entries in Champion Collection and Artifact Storage and reduce the amount of scrolling you need to undertake for each routine operation. Those enhancements are anticipated somewhere roughly in the first half of the next year but watch out for new YouTube Content-Creators' videos for intrinsics about those improvements.
New Tavern items - XP Barrel and Feast
Please, notice that previously mentioned UI changes have nothing to do with additional items brought to the Tavern by the recent update - XP Barrel and Feast. Those items by no means supersede the planned UI improvements; they just provide additional means to help you develop your Champions a little bit faster.
Regarding the number of Champion Training points that a Feast item yields - you get as many points as if you were leveling up and ranking up your Champion consequently from the current level till they reach rank 6*. For instance, if you upgrade 3* Champion, you get all the points for increasing their level and rank to 4*, then to 5* and finally to 6*.
Get ready. What to expect in the near future?
Bommal the Dreadhorn is going to tame his explosive temper somewhat. We will decrease some of his stats on all stages on Normal Difficulty and on the 10th stage of Hard. The chance of his passive skill that used to stun a player's team will be halved. On top of that, Bommal will become more vulnerable to the damage from [Bomb] debuffs in order to make bomb-reliant tactics more viable against this Doom Tower beast. However, please notice that in the update 4.80 we have fixed a technical bug with Dreadhorn’s Magma Flood skill - it no longer goes on cooldown when [HP Burn] debuffs are activated by his Ruinous Crush skill. You can find more detailed account of all the fixes in Patch Notes 4.80.
The next CvC Tournament will unfold on November 23 and will feature Personal rewards. More importantly, a new game-changing feature, Guardian Ring, that comprises several ways to apply your duplicate Champions to good use is advancing in the next major update 4.90, provided all goes well meanwhile. The exact date of this update is yet to be announced.
Oh, and one more thing, since we've already mentioned YouTube, please keep an eye for a promo code there to receive a bunch of benefits. The very wording of it should suffice to give you an impression of the level of challenge some new creeping up content is going to impose upon you. It's about the end of today's Raid Digest, and it's about time to start brushing up all the Champions you haven't found use so far; you'll need them.
That's all for now, folks. Have a great weekend!
