    Our next scheduled update is currently planned for December 1, 2021, and will include Anniversary Events!

    We've had a few setbacks for the upcoming client update. We're still working on it - it is a neverending race against requirement updates that are handed down to us from multiple fronts as we attempt to keep up and get everything ship-shape. Some things to look forward to:
    • Gallery - Improved visual cues for what tiers of your heroes are still locked, for those who are trying to complete the gallery.
    • Player Stat Cards - You know that screen that pops up when you tap your level? We're finally getting some more stats added in there - and this will be available on iOS devices too!

    That's all I can share for now. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

          Yeah - sorry, some of our "internal" terminology slipped out. All of the quests that have "all gear" available share the same drop table (but not the same drop rates), so we call them "shared" gear slot groups.

              But for events not shop.

                Are the Divines still in the Knight Packs? I’ve spent about 50 million since the release and I have dropped every 3 star and every 2 star character listed except Korbin and the Divines. Could just be that RNG hates me but I figured I would ask to be sure.

                Update: dropped Divine Cassandra just now. Guess RNG really does hate me.

                  I have gotten the Divines from the Knight Pack over the past couple days. The drop rates do seem very low for them...or just terrible RNG.

                    It’s the terrible RNG. I’ve dropped dupes of multiple other 2*. 3 Hissrad actually and 2 Spirit of Cole. Haven’t given up yet but only have so much gold lol

                      It's really hard this early to pin down the best - they're all so good. My early feeling is Div Viv looks the best on paper, but Div Lel may be the sleeper. I think Brother Gen is the least critical of them (unless you run the complete set of 4).

                      Just with these 3 ladies, they open up tons of squad comp ideas for so many groups. Orlesian, Circle, Inquisition, Chantry are all so much better represented now with this update (not that Inquisition needed the boost, but this definitely adds a ton of new comp options). Even just the 3 Divines + Brother Gen as a non-dupe, they are a very solid group. I don't think the Divines as a whole will make it into PG from this, but I fully expect each of the 3 of them to find their way into PG in different setups. Going to be a fun next couple of weeks as everyone playtests and gets to know these toons better.

                          Agreed! They open up more opportunities for Chantry and Orlesian to be used, although more buffs on the units themselves would be awesome too. It's a good start for these groups nonetheless!

                            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 these rules and 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.

                            1. First Offense - Warning

                            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.

                            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. All posts/threads will be deleted.

                            Flaming or bashing of EA/CG, the devs, or the mods is not allowed. All such posts/threads will be deleted and an immediate 3-day ban will be issued without warning.

                            Right to Privacy
                            You will not violate a person's privacy by publishing, against another member's will, any 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 player's 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. 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.

                            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:

                            EA TOS English
                            EA TOS French
                            EA TOS German
                            EA TOS Russian
                            EA TOS Spanish

                            By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
