    Patch Notes - 7.24.18

    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:
    • New Group - Added "Nugs" as a group in the Gallery
    • Josephine had a visual effect issue with her candle that's been corrected
    • Grey Warden Sigrun had incorrect curse resist auras, which has been corrected
    • Grey Warden Oghren self-heal chance was incorrectly dependent on there being living enemies, which has been corrected
    • Knight Pack had some misleading information on the pack info description. We've made this less confusing (no compensation).
    • Assassination - The fix is in! This includes the following changes to this mechanic
      • Assassinations will always behave as stealth attacks, and will not trigger on-hit effects.
      • Additionally, on-attack effects (such as Meredith's Key) will not be triggered by Assassinations.
      • A hero targeted by an assassination will always die, regardless of any damage resistance or power drains involved.
      • Damage dealt by an assassination will equal the target's remaining health + 1, for purposes of total damage output calculations.
    • Damage Calculation has been adjusted in order to rein in the unbounded power gain issues we've had
      • These calculations are used by the battle summary along with power gains, heals, and retaliations as a percentage of damage dealt/received.
      • All damage that does not kill the target will remain unaffected as a value for the purposes of total damage output calculations.
      • Damage that kills a target will be bounded, and will calculate as the target's remaining health when killed, plus 20% of the leftover damage.
    • New Gauntlet - Metas: Face off against the meta teams of HoDA history in an all-new Gauntlet event, with brand new exclusive gear and hero rewards. 30 nodes in all! Available NOW in the Gauntlet portal! Please note the new hero may not appear in the Gallery until Thursday.

    Thanks for the updates Lyeshal.
    I am very glad with the new gaunlet and very excited to see who will be the new hero.
    I wonder what will be the meta now after the key and assassination mechanic fix, time to test team setups.
    A little disappointed that great heroes as Necro D, RJS, Ariqun and AL were removed from BP, there are very few new heroes in it now and you can get kitty and envy at gaunlet.
    I hope there will be more chances to get them if they aren't in the BP anymore.
    I also like the new revamped heroes, Lucius Corin seems pretty good now.

      Looks good. Excited for new gauntlet. Only issue I have. Lucius aura should extend to Templars and Seekers. He is a Seeker as well but doesn't buff them.
      It's only a game..........right?

        Great stuff. Too bad missed out on some toons leaving BP and IP. A few dupes on some would be nice

          Really disappointed, I had accumulated so many packages to try to get AL and other toon, but they were removed, because it happened, they had been added recently !?

            Necromancer Dorian was added to Iron Packs. The others were removed because they are available in weekly quest events.

              Why saving up your packages? Turn them in when you get them if the hero you want is in the pack.

              It's no secret how often the packs are refreshed, and we've explained what the timing is like for when heroes will rotate in. We also explained that heroes available in weekly quests will not be available within the packs (this doesn't include the Gauntlet heroes). So once you see a hero go into a weekly event, you can bet the next time the pack they're in is refreshed, they're gonna get pulled.

                Nice then Lyeshal, I haven't realized that all were available in weekly quest events, I will check it out.
                But I still miss more BP heroes, I find them have been reduced by half now.

                  Nah, maybe about an eighth. More came out than went in, but they don't get removed from the Bloodstones until either they've become eligible for the Commander Pack or they've been put into a weekly event... and we won't pull them until they're actually IN the Commander Pack first. So anything that's been pulled from Bloodstones today is either already available in Iron and/or Commander Packs, or within a weekly event. Plenty of opportunity to get them.

                  Necro D was a weird case. He got accidentally removed from Iron Packs earlier, so it looks odd that he's gotten pulled from BP and added to IP at the same time. He should also be in Commander Pack already, so you can expect he'll be there in about 3 weeks when we update those packs.

                    In particular I referred to AL, is or was present in weekly events, I do not remember, but it is probably as you say.

                      Cool, I will try to get some dupes when I have the chance, I still miss some AL dupes for my collection.

                        Thank you for the updates. I am happy for the quick fix on Josephine's Candle visual effect. Also, nice upgrades for High Seeker Aldren and Lusius Corin.

                          Actually, she's available in the Iron Pack right now, rather than weekly events.

                            Apparently my tool went screwy and yanked a few out of BP before the Commander update happened for them... you can expect those heroes to be added to the Commander Pack in about 3 weeks.

                              The new gauntlet is an absolute riot. Huge grin for the entire run. Well done!

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.
