March Update Teaser
We have some news for you this week about our Attack of the Shapeshifters. Let’s dive into the sea-full of changes and details!
Attack of the Shapeshifters rework:
We have got different feedback about our new battle calculation system and one of the main pain points was the problem of defense underestimation. There is why we decided to improve our point formula and after the update, defenders will also get Charms after a successful defense.
With this update, we will also implement a new exclusive bonus which can be used only in the Shapeshifter event: “Charm Booster”. It increases the number of shapeshifter charms earned when attacking shapeshifter totems and you can use multiple charm boosters per attack.
- From now on your castle will be surrounded by 10 Shapeshifter enemies. To attack each target you will need “Attack runes” and you will be able to choose your 5 opponents from a broader pot of 10 Shapeshifters now. Every day you will get 5 Runes for free and you can purchase the other 5 for premium currency. Your ranking will still be counted according to your best Point Series. Purchasing your first rune will start a new series. Thereafter your purchased runes will continue to add to that series.
Insignias payout for a place in the ranking will be adjusted too. Here is an example of Insignias players level 70+ will get:
25601 and lower
Following numbers are given only for level 70+, but this feature was changed for all levels
On the other hand, we will significantly lower the price of the Shapeshifter equipment items from the set "Materials of the Master Summoner", decoration, and material sacks in the Insignias shop, to make it more affordable to all of you and to make it fit to new event iterations.
During Attack of the Shapeshifters event, Equipment trader will offer you a new temporary equipment set.
The duration of the set will be 7 days long and it will have unique bonuses which will work only on Shapeshifter targets.
Every item will be already on the level 20, and you do not need help of Technicus for this set.
Remember, that it is impossible to embed the gem in any of the equipment item from this set.
Here is the set:
Armor of the rune guards:
Morphing armor (Armor, lvl 20)
|+47% combat strength for melee units|
-52% enemy wall protection
