Patch 2.2! Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

We are happy to inform you that patch 2.2 will go live on Thursday, 28 February 2019. Here are the most important changes:


Changes to King of the Hill expeditions!

Now you’ll be able to increase the difficulty – monsters will be much more numerous and challenging! If you defeat them all, you’ll get more honours points, resources and an increased chance of a second and third enchantments!

Balance changing, including:

- enchantments that now increase HP will increase base HP making the effect much stronger,
- the effects of Bestial Fury will be now more predictable and less dependent on the weapon used by the opponent,
- on Necropolis Aura of Blood’s damage each round will no longer exceed 10% of the opponent’s maximum HP,
- Minor changes to races, arcana and talismans.

We’ve also introduced some other, minor changes to the game:

- 3v3 and CvC arenas now award evolution points (instead of Souvenir Shop),
- You can now cancel expeditions if no one has joined yet,
- You can now sort and remove players from the target list,
- You can now pay with paysafecard,
- Many miscellaneous changes.

Full list of changes:

KotH: you can now increase the difficulty of KotH. Subsequent difficulty levels will have more opponents with better stats. They will also yield more honour, resources and have higher chance of giving second and third enchantment effects.

KotH: opponents who summon more opponents will no longer be summoned.

[UW and Necro] King of the Hill: modified level ranges for additional opponents and the number of basic and additional opponents.

You can now cancel expeditions, KotH or 3v3 arena team if no one has joined yet.

For participating in a 3v3 or CvC arena, every player gets 25 evolution points. Due to this, we're removing souvenir shop on every 15th and 25th day of the month.

The "New Arena" option in the main menu will be highlighted on the day 3v3 and CvC arenas start if you haven't joined one of these types of arena yet and always 3 hours before the arenas start.

[All servers] Bestial fury: we've capped the number of counterstrikes per round but also increased the chance and maximum chance for a counterstrike. For one-handed weapons, the number of countrstrikes will be calculated separately for every weapon.

[All servers] Changed HP enchantment to BASE HP.

[Necro] Aura of Blood will now take a maximum of 10% of your opponent's HP.

[UW and Necro] Mask of Power talisman: added an additional effect - every level of Mask of Adonis increases base HP by 5/10/20/30.

[UW and Necro] Majesty: every level of the Arcanum increases base HP during sieges and expeditions by 7% (up from 5%).

Maximum critical hit chance reduction from Beast's Hide is now 125% on UW and 100% on Necro.

Increased the amount of experience gained from ambushes above level 100 and changed the formula to make level difference less of a factor.

The time to destroy a building will be equal to the time needed to build it +24 hours.

List of targets can now be sorted and players can now be removed from it. Checking the checkbox that filters attackable targets will now be remembered after page refresh. List of targets will be visible even if you have no more attacks.

Added a "Sell rubbish" button (on UW also "Destroy rubbish") in the Armoury Archive. The button automatically sells (or destroys) ALL low-value items from shelf 1.

Increased the number of items shown in the Armoury Archive to 500.

In animated reports from detected ambushes, character names will be visible so that there's no need to look at the text report.

Changed the name of the effect "Stat requirements decreased by " to "Easiness". The new parameter will be displayed in the Throne Hall.

The number of equipped runes will be visible on every talisman tab.

Auctions will be finalized by the servers in 1-2 hours from the time the auction is closed (down from 1-6 hours).

You can now open auction house categories in separate tabs.

Improved Clan Armoury sorting. Of Blood, of Luck and of Easiness jewellery will now be displayed over sets (except for arcana or Plastic sets) and will be placed on a separate shelf even if the Armoury contains only one such item.

You can now pay for Premium with paysafecard.

Corrections to some in-game messages.

Grind for evos - still too long, increase not enough, I need well over 40k, do the maths!?!

Fix junk pricing, patch messed up our small server.

Destroying should be close on instant really, 48 - 60 hours more than enough, and decrease building times, China can build full blown real city in less time than it takes to upgrade arms shop.

Thanks for the heads up Szeszej Wink
Looks like some nice changes there

Can you give more details on what's considered a "low-value" item?
Is it based on lgo value only, or does it factor in wether or not the items have prefix/suffix? (I know affixes affect price, but some useless items can have greater lgo value than useful ones due to item lvl, etc.)

Hey Szezej,
[Necro] Aura of Blood will now take a maximum of 10% of your opponent’s HP.

Is this correct? I see it applying to UW too
