Hello fellow DPG members,
This update is focused on bringing to you the Paleozoic era. We’re taking you to the Permian period when Inostrancevia, Arctops, Moschops and Scutosaurus roamed free on the Earth. We’re also introducing the new Revenge Ability.
Here’s what’s exciting in the update:
- New Creatures
- New Mechanics
- Active Abilities
- New Passive Abilities
- Ability Updates
- Creature Updates
- Bug Fixes & Known Issues
The permian creatures Inostrancevia, Arctops, Moschops and Scutosaurus are creatures that you will want to keep in your pocket until one of your creatures is taken out.
- Inostrancevia - Common | Cunning, Revenge, Fast, Striker
A simple creature, Inostrancevia features the Revenge Impact special ability. It can control its opponent’s damage through copious uses of the basic attack Distraction. Its offensive dedication is felt with its Immunity to Distraction.
This permian creature is the largest of the two gorgonopsians , with 1000 attack, 3900 HP and 130 speed, Inostrancevia is poised to exact revenge in the name of its lost teammates.
- Arctops - Rare Exclusive | Cunning, Revenge, Fast, Distracter
Arctops is the more aggressive of the gorgonopsians: it has 1300 attack, 3000 HP and 131 speed. Arctops is Immune to Distraction. It has access to the Distraction basic attack as well as Revenge Distracting Strike special abilities. This means that on turn 2, with the proper combination of abilities, it is possible to inflict a -100% or a -125% damage reduction to the opponent creature! Arctops can also use its Rampage to inflict the most damage at a critical moment.
- Moschops - Rare | Resilient, Revenge, Speed Control, Tank
Fast cat got your mouse? Introduce it to Moschops! It can withstand a cunning opponent’s onslaught while using Superiority Strike to gain the speed advantage. Featuring Revenge Decelerating Impact, Moschops can deal a high amount of damage while (once again) gaining the speed advantage. If you’re facing an opponent equipped with Dodge, Moschops’ Precise Rampage can hit it where it hurts the most. Moschops is Immune to Deceleration and Immune to Stuns.
Moschops has 4500 HP, 1000 attack and 113 speed, with a solid 25% armor.
- Scutosaurus - Epic | Resilient, Revenge, Speed Control, Tank
When the opponent is fast with Distraction abilities, accept no substitutes: Scutosaurus can either start its revenge on the defensive front with Revenge Protection, or set up speed superiority with Revenge Decelerating Impact or Superiority Strike. It is Immune to Deceleration and Immune to Stuns. Scutosaurus has 4800 HP, 1000 attack and 116 speed, with a solid 25% armor.
- Entelochops - Epic Hybrid | Mixed, Revenge, Superiority, Fast, Tank, Mutual Fury, Shattering
Similar to its Moschops parent, this hybrid combines the boarish ferocity of the Entelodon with the revenge abilities of Moschops. Entelochops’ attributes make it a good bruiser, with 1100 attack, 4200 HP, 126 speed and 20% armor. Entelochops is a mixed hybrid, it’s good for a variety of reasons: it can maintain speed advantage with Superiority Strike and Revenge Decelerating Impact, it can increase its damage and speed with Mutual Fury, and it can severely put the hurt on anything with Revenge Shattering Rampage. As with its Permian parent, Entelochops is Immune to Deceleration and Immune to Stuns.
The scientists working on this hybridization project had a bit of fun when picking which creatures to hybridize together. Can you guess what this creature’s nickname is?
- Majundaboa - Epic Superhybrid | Resilient, Escape Prevention, Shielded, Counter-Attacker
Consistency and long-term goals are this superhybrid’s modus operandi. It inherits its traits from Majundasuchus and Titanoboa GEN2. With Raking Counter Attack, Immune to Distraction and Ferocious Strike, Majundaboa keeps the damage coming. With Shielded Decelerating Strike and On Escape Dust Cloud, Majundaboa ensures that it benefits from multiple sources of Shields to outlast the opposition. Last but not least, Majundaboa is a patient jack of all trades that has access to useful contingencies in the form of Cleansing Impact and Precise Impact. Its attributes are Attack 1000, HP 3600, speed 110.
- Grylenken - Legendary Hybrid | Cunning, Dodger
Gryposuchus ancestry combined with Kelenken DNA means that almost no one can escape the Grylenken, since it has No Escape. This hybrid maintains its speed advantage since it is Immuned to Deceleration. Grylenken can counter certain arena matchups thanks to Evasive Stance and Immobilize, while it can pile on the hurt with Raking Claws. Its Simple Rending Counter Attack lets it deal consistent damage no matter the size of the foe. The snap-jaw terror bird hybrid has 1100 attack, 3000 HP, 126 speed and 10% armor. Its basic ability is *Distraction.
Revenge abilities have some mechanical differences based on whether you lost a creature last turn or not. The first part is used when the ability is played, but if you lost a creature last turn the second part is used instead.
When your creature is taken out, it will be to your advantage if you replace it with a revenge creature. That creature’s abilities will be different (i.e. improved) on the first action.
As an opponent facing a revenge creature, this is a perfect moment to attempt to stun the revenge creature before it’s able to act! You can also expect that the revenge creature will use a revenge ability to benefit from its improved mechanics, but a canny opponent could use this predictability to bluff you! In fact, if your opponent does not benefit from their Revenge ability, the in-game prompt “No Revenge” will appear as it performs a non-Revenge action.
