  • Patch Notes - 9.4.18

    An update just hit! Primarily includes the upcoming weekly content releases for Packs, Quest and PVP events (See weekly event schedule), but also includes the following:
    • Vinsomer Dragonling had an issue with the aura providing a boost to High Dragons. This has been changed to all Dragons.
    • Consume Tables for 1* and 2* Large Creatures were incorrect for the crit chance values above 25%. The requirements have been reduced to their appropriate values. If you have already made progress toward 26% crit chance or beyond, please consume one additional unit into these heroes, and the values will self-correct.
    • A new Raid Portal has been added to the game! Accessible only via a new orange key, the portal provides the ability to choose from any of the existing Raids in the game, plus exclusive access to a brand new raid, Shapeshifters, featuring Shapeshifer Morrigan and Asha'Bellanar as the top prizes! Each usage of the key unlocks the portal for 24 hours, or 500 runs, whichever comes first. The Raids are the Ludicrous versions of each raid, and the first keys will be granted to the Top 10 Guilds and those who meet the Banner Stretch goal of the next Onslaught event.

      It'll still be equipped and will still work.

      Gear only checks those requirements when you go to equip them, so anything you've equipped previously will remain equipped and will work even if the character no longer qualifies to have that gear (like a Healer having Soother's Sapphire equipped, and then getting a revamp where they're not a Healer anymore). We try to limit removing things like that, but sometimes it can't be helped. But, the gear will still work, just people acquiring a Sandy after today will not be able to equip that gear.

                Can I confirm the text of "When hit, allies gain +5%..." do you mean when Sandy (only) is hit allies all gain those bonuses, or do you mean when an individual ally is hit, it gains those bonuses?

                And on a separate note - surprised to see 3* Archdemon Urth with so few hps compared to the rest (considering DoTEO and the Mother both have blighted flags they can significantly benefit from blighted auras from the party I was hoping it would be the same for Urth re: Tevinter auras along with a solid base of hps)

                  Awesome updates. Just a couple of remarks:

                  1-Only northern hunter is left to update among DAI dragons
                  2-urthemiel is still tiny even after the update. Am I missing something there?

                    Yeah I think Sandy is the big winner here although behemoth and DoTEO come out with beastly stats.

                      I agree. I think Sandy has usefulness again and gives a good boost to all of these older red faction creatures. Almost like they all get a mini-revamp. :-)

                          When Sandy is hit, with some initial dr she can take you to another armor level, she may be able to resist some hits specially with runes and good companions.

                          On AU I think that huge pd resist aura is taking points from his health, BTW now with the tev tag he can get a lot beefier.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.


                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.
