Chapter 28: The Great Library

image
After the Oracle expels Our Heroes from the Myne Temple, they find themselves in Spell Binder’s dream location - a magical library! There are big books, small books, rare books, books with blue covers, and an incredibly intelligent Soul Phoenix. As Spell Binder questions her role within the group, Rogue Bowmen questions how many books he can steal. Will Our Heroes be able to turn a new page, or will their quest for knowledge leave them torn?

New Heroes!

Crimson Cultist


Crimson Cultist enjoys the pulse and the power of blood. The way it oozes and leaks out of a creature. Don’t expect mercy. You won’t find any behind her mask.

Crimson Cultist is a Back-Line Damage Fury Hero who will be in the Elite Campaign on Servers 1, 4 & 7.

Skills


Caught One
Crimson Cultist pulls the furthest enemy towards her side of the battlefield, they take damage and have their Threat maxed.

skill_cursed
Cursed Touch
Attacks and Skills apply the Cursed status.


Contagion
When an enemy crosses a certain point on the battlefield for the first time, Crimson Cultist infects them with an incurable Contagion. This deals initial damage and the target begins to take Bleed damage twice a second for the rest of the wave. The Contagion cannot be Blessed and Crimson Cultist will prioritize her basic attacks on infected targets until they die.


Payout
This Hero gains Energy and Health whenever the enemy with the most Threat dies.

Epic Gear


Time To Bleed
The blood drips, drop by drop, second by second. When the last bead of blood falls, your time has ended.

When attacking enemies infected with the Contagion, Crimson Cultist’s Basic Attacks deal extra damage and Crit. When an infected enemy dies they will now spread the Contagion to their closest ally. Multiple instances of the Contagion can exist on an enemy at a time.

Improvements

Updates to New War

We’ve been listening to all the feedback on the new War system since it launched on server 4 and will be making the following changes to fix some of the issues that have been brought up:

  • Adjusted the way the tiebreakers work
    • Tie Breaker 1 now goes to the Guild that has destroyed the highest percentage of lineups set.
    • Clarification on Tiebreaker 2
      • This tie breaker goes to the guild that finishes their last successful fight first.
      • We fixed a bug that was preventing this from working as intended before and have updated this information in the War How-To-Play section
  • Attack Credit costs have been adjusted as follows:
    • Attacking Tier 3 towers now cost 2 AC
    • Attacking Mage Towers and Keep now costs 3 AC
    • Refreshing Heroes now costs 2 AC
    • Attacking Tier 1 and Tier 2 towers still cost 1 AC
  • Mage Towers Buffs now affect all towers on the map
    • Their respective buffs will still be removed once the Mage Tower is destroyed.

NOTE:

  • The tie breaker changes will be active starting June 19.
  • The AC adjustments and the Mage Tower changes will not be in effect for Wars that take place on June 19. Those changes will start on June 21.

We are excited to see how these changes play out over the rest of the War season. Thanks to all the players that have given continuous constructive feedback on the new War system. As always, we will continue to listen and make adjustments as necessary.

General Improvements

  • Added Epic Scraps, Items Scraps and All Scraps Filter to the Items Menu
  • Improved how Marked Towers look in War
  • Gold Skins will now have Aspect Damage - the same as Classic Skins

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when tapping the information button in the war defense lineups screen
  • Fixed a crash that was happening when new Guild Members attempted to make a War Spar attack
  • Fixed a bug that caused a crash with Guild Cooldown
  • Fixed an interaction between Furmiliar and Twin Trackers

Still waiting on being able to pour xp into equipped essences :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thank you for this
Makes life easier to see epic gear somewhere together so can work out what teams I’ll be inclined to use in epic² without scrolling the numerous hero windows

You can press and hold the Add XP button for essences and it’ll fill-up. No need to tap,tap,tap

Still requires me to go to every single hero and click every single essence for every single cap raise just to get them up to scratch.

It’s bad enough having to go through the unequipped ones, but at least there is an inventory filter and it’s somewhat tolerable.

Auto fill hero xp to one hero whether it be level up or essence fill would be quick
Essence inventory with equipped and unequipped would be quicker though I reckon :sunglasses:

Guild with no mage towers is still a strategy … I hope that fix is coming in 3.9 or before new war starts on s1

I’m also concerned that tiebreaker 2 didn’t get fixed. They just said “clarification,” which implies we didn’t understand. However, the tiebreaker isn’t working how they clarified, so if nothing was actually changed, it will still be broken.

Edited above to add:

  • Gold Skins will now have Aspect Damage - the same as Classic Skins

@Bubbles_II How can no mage be a strategy ? Maybe Im missing something but its the percentage of lines defeated now. Having no mage is like Having less lines. You dont get any advantage of doing that.
@Floner The second tiebreaker seems fair to me. Maybe You are talking about a specific war where it didnt work ? The only thing to do is to make a ticket I guess to let them check if everything is OK :confused:

Edit : I guess you are talking about guild that didnt purchase the mage perk ? Because I think you cant leave a tower empty if you purchase the perk already :thinking:

Yes, bubbles is referring to the guild clueless, which you can only score 440 points against. If we can max tower lines it shouldn’t be an issue Bc they don’t have the power/people to clear the whole map against guilds above their typical ranking, but it is still an issue and unfair advantage.

As for my comment, yes, the tiebreaker is fine if it works as intended, but it doesn’t currently work. I have submitted tickets for it, but it is how VZ and Myth both lost their first tier 3 fight. Both cleared map first but lost, because the second tiebreaker didn’t/doesn’t work as intended. So unless code was changed, which patch notes don’t necessarily indicate, it still won’t work.

When you say “clarification on tiebreaker 2” does this mean the code will stay the same?
