  • 1* Spirit Spellbinder and 1* Archivist

    Mage counterpart to Spirit Champion? Heck yeah.
    New spirit support hero? Heck yeah!
    Both of them are elves too? HECK YEAH!

    Alongside these new heroes are three pieces of gear coming out this week. Yavanalis will be in the premium packs, while the Tome of the Mortal Vessel will be available exclusively in Library Packs from this week's PVP and the Templar Helmet will be awarded to the top players of this week's guild war before moving to the premium catalog next week. Discuss!

    Is the Archivist just a weaker SoF (half the stats and no power resist), or will the power bonus on it's "attack" phase make a noticeable difference?

      Don't miss that the Archivist goes in the Normal phase, while SoF has to wait til the Slow phase, and has bigger auras.

      Plus, the gains that happen for Archivist are based on the incoming damage, vs SoF giving a flat % increase based on each ally's own health/power. Archivist is also more of a "counter" support - provides negative auras to enemies, and drains enemies on death, whereas SoF heals allies on death and has no negatives vs enemies.

      SoF is also a Defender, thus the much much bigger health pool on her.

      They're different, in different ways, for different situations.

            For comparison purposes, SoF does 10% health and power based on allies' stats, compared with 5% of incoming damage for Archivist - isn't that in most cases going to end up being lower power gain / healing? Having said that the negative critical chance penalty to enemies I think is potent, with the negative power drain on death opening some interesting possibilities for front row suiciding And that normal round combined with power gain make for some interesting decisions as to what to pair it / them with.

            Certainly one for testing...

              In most cases, not really. Gains based on the ally's power/health stat are based on the starting value for that hero, so what you see in the More Info screen. Gains based on incoming damage will include any of the enemy's power gains as well, so that value can grow pretty well before the heal/gain is triggered.

                    Just got both from a gcp due to the fact I had a gauruntee, the new spellbinder is glitched in pose, but other than that and the low health pools they look great!

                      Since I spent a bunch of gems on the recent flash packs and the last PVP, I thought I'd try and get off cheap using CP's since they are both 1* units and I was close to my featured guarantee. 4 packs in, thinking I'm going to get one, dupe GMD. 3 pulls later, my featured is the Archivist. Next pull is guaranteed Legendary....THO. Crap. Do I keep going for Spirit Spellbinder, or sit here knowing I am only missing one unit in the entire catalogue.

                        I am not sure how, or why, but I have never seen this before today. I had to spend 600+ gems just to get the 1 star that I wanted from this. Has anybody else experienced this? The first 10 champion packs yielded 3 2 star dragonlings. Got 1 more 2 star dragonling before the first 1 star dropped on a guarantee. Did not know 1 star toons were so hard to get. To think SSM is a little expensive, well over 600 gems for Archivist is a little nuts.

                          Yeah was a little disappointed to use a GCP and get 3 epics heroes, another torpor, vinsomer dragonling, another denam and 3 legendary wisps - neither of the 1 star heroes just released... vexing!

                            On death, dose Archivist drains 50% of his power or based on enemy's power?

                              I also just got 3x 2 star dragonlings out of a GCP is something funky going on with the 1 star drop rate?

                              Eta: all of these were dupes in only missing the 1 stars.

                              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:
