    Patch Notes - 2.7.18

    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:
    • Rune Packs - We've removed the daily restrictions on the rune pack purchases, so you can purchase as many of each as you would like, at any time. Additionally, we've made some alterations to these packs:
      • Speed Kills Pack
        • Reduced price to 9 gems
        • Added Mythic Power/Health runes
      • Ancient Lore Pack
        • Reduced price to 5 gems
      • Grab Bag Pack
        • Removed guarantee of Rune of Knowledge
        • Added small chance at Mythic runes
        • Added Epic+ Speed runes
        • Decreased drop chances of runes of Control, Alacrity, and Vigor
    • The Mark ability has been fixed to ensure it will always apply, regardless of whether the initial target has been killed. You will find updated descriptions on the following heroes to reflect this change:

      • Blighted Fennec
      • Garahel
      • The Last Inquisitor
    • The Hero Booster Packs are returning and will be permanent going forward.
    • There was an issue with Avernus' healing aura, and we have corrected his description to match the actual functionality. This aura has been and will continue to apply to all allies instead of just Wardens.
    • Great Dragon's ability was incorrectly translated in Russian, and this has been corrected.
    • The Giant and Giant Wisp keyed events have been improved! We've added more nodes to the Giant event to provide more rewards per run, and drastically improved the chance to receive higher rarity heroes, as well as added several 2* and 3* large creatures to the drop table.

      • Ser Pounce-a-Lot - This is a near-complete rework of this hero
        • Removed all previous auras and abilities
        • Changed initiative to Normal
        • Changed groups to Pets, Creatures, Wardens
        • New ability: Attacks a row of enemies and heals all allies a moderate amount. Chance for 2nd attack and heal.

      We've said that the Knight/Soldier/Recruits were next, every time anyone has asked about this recently.

            None yet. The same issues that have been delaying our client release have been delaying mechanics changes as well.

                      Can you explain the update to the Mark ability? You said that it applies even after the target dies? Who does it apply to then?

                        A new target is chosen. So instead of it being attached to whatever the initial target was for the main attack, it will select a new target to apply the Mark to. This may be the same target as the initial attack if it's still alive, or it may be an entirely different target. However, the Mark will always apply now.

                          I like the new grab bag changes - most welcome.

                          For what it's worth from an admittedly small sample size (so unlikely to be significant, I may have just got very lucky) I got 2 Mythic and 3 Legendary giant wisps and 1 tome from 9 giant wisp runs. Most welcome

                              Thank you Lyeshal and HODA team for the updates.

                              Great news for The Mark ability and the revamps for Schmooples and Ser Pounce-a-Lot. Finally all versions of Leliana.
                              I will most likely use them next week.

                              These rules set boundaries to ensure that the EA Capital Games games and forums continue to be a friendly place where members can learn and share information on a variety of computing and non-computing topics. Heroes of Dragon Age and its forums are available to players 13 and older, refrain from excessive cursing/swearing. For more information, please see this link.

                              By accessing the EA Capital Games applications, users agree to accept that game administrators and moderators may remove any content submitted by a player as defined below. Users agree to EA Terms of Service as well. Misrepresenting oneself to engage in illegal activity will be immediately reported to EA for legal action.

                              Even though these are forums to allow free expression of ideas, there are other (real) people involved and one should respect their opinions and questions as ORIGINALLY POSTED IN THE TOPIC HEADINGS. Moderators are here to uphold and enforce the Terms of Service. Freedom to express your ideas, concerns, suggestions, and feedback, does not allow you the freedom of saying anything you want when you agree to the Terms of Service.

                              Unless otherwise stated, courses of action will be as follows:

                              1. First Offense - Warning
                              2. Second Offense - 3 day ban

                              What is not permitted in the discussion forum:

                              Advertising or soliciting other members to buy, sell, or peruse any products or services including other applications or accounts, along with chain letters and junk mail.

                              Topics/posts that contain this will be both edited and closed or deleted, and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

                              Racism, bigotry, misogyny, hate speech, discrimination against any race, sexual preference, gender, or religion will not be tolerated.

                              All topics/posts will be deleted. Death threats, even joking, will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning, with further review from the Sr Moderator.

                              Flaming includes material that is knowingly defamatory, illegal, abusive, threatening or harassing.

                              As with anything, you, as a member, should use good common sense when posting. In other words, you agree not to be a jerk. Posts containing personal attacks on another user will be edited/deleted at the moderators’ will.

                              Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All posts/threads will be deleted.

                              Right to Privacy
                              You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing against another members will, information that is private and personal. Nor will you post private communication between EA Capital Games Support, other forum members, moderators, community managers, administrators, EA Capital Games employees, or partners of EA Capital Games on these forums or anywhere else.

                              Unless expressly endorsed by EA Capital Games, publicizing any correspondence of a private nature such as support tickets, email, Private Messages (PM) or chat logs thereof by any medium is NOT permitted.

                              Discussing or posting of another players spending habits will be deleted.

                              Obvious spam (repetitive nonsense posts) will result in the poster permanently banned and all posts deleted.

                              Material that is sexually or otherwise obscene is not permitted on these forums.

                              Topics/posts containing such will be deleted on sight. Forum poster will be permanently banned from the forums.

                              Providing or asking for information regarding the illegal downloading of "warez", "gamez" or any other software protected by copyright.

                              Future Events/Promotions
                              Any posts or threads revealing future events or promotions that were not disclosed by the Capital Games team will be deleted.

                              Posting the same question in more than one forum is not allowed. Should this occur, then only the thread in the most relevant forum will be left open; all others will be locked/closed and subsequently deleted.

                              The use of any exploits or known bugs or editing of files in order to gain an unfair advantage while playing, will result in a permanent game and forum ban.

                              Accusing another player of cheating will result in your post/thread being deleted and a message sent to you, stating to refrain from further accusations. If continued accusations occur, a forum ban will result. If you believe a player to be cheating, send a PM to the Community Manager with as much detail as possible.

                              Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.

                              Off-Topic Posting
                              Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.

                              Political Posting
                              Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.

                              Customer Support Inquiries
                              All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.

                              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.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
