Update 4.2 Patch Notes

Portal Quest 4.2!

Overview

Welcome to the 4.2 Portal Quest update! This update features revamped Daily Sign-In Rewards, a new Chapter and Rarity, and our 100th Hero!

Chapter 38: A Storm (Wizard) Is Coming

After receiving a distress signal, Our Heroes travel to Barbary University, an underwater academy on the back of a stingray. There they meet up with Storm Wizard’s old college buddy and learn that Stormy used to be smart, popular, and a…heartbreaker. Stunned by this news, Our Heroes set off to discover what happened to their friend to make him the bumbling wizard he is today.

100th Hero! - Aquamancer!

A proud alum and professor at Barbary University, Aquamancer is always voted: teacher most likely to forget what they’re talking about halfway through their lecture and will instead regale you with stories of their misspent youth.

Aquamancer is a Back-Line Support Fury Hero who will only be available in gold chests on server 1.

Skills

The Tide’s Calling

Aquamancer calls upon the Tide to aid all allies in combat. All allies are healed for a percent of their Max Health twice a second for a time.

Excess Bandages

Heals self and allies Health at the end of a wave.

The Tide’s Blessing

Aquamancer summons The Tide’s Blessing and places a single mark of it on the ally missing the most Health.

The initial cast of the skill heals the ally for a percent of their Max Health. Each mark of Tide’s Blessing heals the unit for a percent of its Max Health every second for the duration. Allies can have a max number of marks on them.

Tenacious

Resists being Stunned,Slowed,Immobilized, and being put to Sleep.

Epic Gear

Trident of the Shrouded Sea

The trident had been lost to the depths of the Shrouded Sea for ages…until a plucky little water mage came along and discovered it.

The Tide’s Blessing is now cast on 2 allies at a time. Units that already have The Tide’s Blessing on them are Blessed. Allies gain Attack for each mark they have on them.

Improvements

We always want your time invested into Portal Quest to feel worth the effort and we agree with players that some of the modes have fallen behind in this regard when it comes to valuable resources awarded. This update will showcase our revamp of the Daily Sign-In feature. Consider this to be our first step in a larger project of updating rewards given out across the various areas of the game.

The Daily Sign-In revamp introduces a new type of item to the game called Embershards!

Embershards cannot be stored in your inventory and when claimed, instantly grant players large amounts of Gold and Hero XP based on their Team Level. At early stages of the game Embershards level up frequently but later on they level up at the same Team Levels required for the newest Chapters.

From now on, all Nuggets and Hero XP Vials in the Daily Sign-In rewards will be replaced with Embershards. We’ve also significantly increased the amount of Diamonds and Sign-In Hero shards awarded from signing in every day and VIP players will still be granted double rewards on the same days as before.

We’re very excited to get this new Daily Sign-In out to all players and look forward to hearing your feedback. Make sure to log in every day to get these valuable resources, you won’t want to miss out!

Other Improvements:

  • Reworked the behavior around Attack Credits in War Spar:
    • Guilds will now be granted Attack Credits in their Bank based on their Guild’s War Bank Starting Balance Guild Perk
    • All members can now request Attack Credits in War Spar
    • All members can now donate points to the Bank during War Spar
    • Guild Leadership can donate Attack Credits from the Bank during War Spar
  • Added in a bunch of new Sets and Collections
  • Added Healing battle text for Nitropod’s White Skill

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue where Curse wasn’t preventing Nitropod’s White Skill heal
  • Fixed an issue where Wandering Sword wasn’t gaining his energy reset when executing a Blessed enemy
  • Fixed a crash between Tubby Traveller and Brutal Axe

This is a full client update, so you’ll have to do it manually with the server update.

Where the number changes from 4.1 to 4.2 , it’s a client update.
This will require downtime.

Where it’s a 4.1.A to 4.1.B type change, it’s a server only update.
Usually these incremental updates are pre built into the last client update, so the client does not need to be updated, and the game does not need downtime.

Unless per blue need to tweak a setting, alter a hero or nerf the new guy… :wink:

Yes, this means the 4.2 update tomorrow (Edit: Thursday. Learn to read, Mici!) should have all the heroes for the next month in it already…

We will need to delay the 4.2 update. We found a critical crash in our final testing that required we submit a new client to the app stores. It is currently waiting on review. We’ll let you know when we’re ready to release!

Portal quest caught the Corona virus?!
