  • Patch Notes - 07.17.19

    Content for the next few weeks has been added to the game. Here's what you'll find with this update:

    Bug Fixes
    • In some cases, equipping gear to the Prestige slot before ascending a hero to Mythic caused the gear to equip to the wrong slot, making it seem as though the gear had disappeared. This has been corrected. If you previously equipped gear to the Prestige slot and had not yet raised your hero to Mythic, the gear will appear in the Ascension slot automatically upon ascending your hero.
    • The Ancient Crypt PVE Event incorrectly dropped Ash Wraiths instead of the new hero Profane. This event has been fixed. A compensation package is being issued to all affected players, based on recent activity in the game. Due to privacy reasons, we cannot disclose the exact metrics for each tier of compensation, but all affected players will receive at least one Profane and a Mythic rune. Some players qualify for up to 3 Profanes and Runes, along with a free energy refresh. Please note that the energy refresh is a direct refill of your energy, so be sure to only claim it when you have already exhausted your current energy. This does not overflow your energy - it behaves the same as if you purchase an energy refresh, bringing your energy to max.

        Dworkin's Safe Explosives
        Rarity: Rare
        Limitations: Normal-size heroes
        When enemies are hit, all enemies take 3% of damage dealt, but allies take 1%

        Are they work as self activation?
        I mean as self attack.
        Or this is just aoe mechanic, that doesn't activate abilities

          Does not activate like self attacks, no. It also won't activate (or be counted in) enemy on-hit effects.

            The idea behind the explosives is that the more total damage you deal to your enemies, the more EXTRA damage you're going to get out of them, but because they're .. kind of safe .. your allies are going to get a little splash damage too.

            Your AOE attackers are going to deal the most explosive damage (particularly if the entire enemy squad still stands), while your single attackers will deal the least.

                    Heads up - there's a little oddity with the compensation pack, after you've claimed your packs. It may still show 1 or 2 "packs available", but the button says "Find" rather than "Claim". This is due to the pack having a max purchase limit of 3. As such, if you received fewer than 3, it still thinks there's one potentially available. Since this behaves as a voucher pack, and voucher packs don't just disappear after you've run out of vouchers, this is the default behavior for it.

                    Please don't submit anything to CS asking about this - you have received the correct number of vouchers to claim your packs.

                      Luka is like Poison tempest, debuffs resists, applies effects on enemies, explosion damage like frost sera and heavy passive drains on self hit.

                              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.

                              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. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.

                              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 Lead 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. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. 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 under the appropriate heading.

                              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. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                              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 and/or game.

                              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.
