The Balance & Bravery update changes the Challenge Mode and Battle Mode rewards, and sets the stage for a new hero to join the party!
We’ve made some changes to Challenge Mode to improve the pace of play and the rewards:
- All reward dice are now d20s.
- The regular free challenge is now the highest level unlocked challenge.
- All challenges are now 9 rooms max.
Change 1 - d20 Reward Dice
All the reward dice earned for defeating a Boss are now d20s. Even if you only defeat a Boss once, you have access to the entire Reward List.
After rolling up to 3 dice, you pick your preferred reward. All doubles and triples are combined, as usual.
Change 2 - Free Challenge
The free challenge is now the highest unlocked challenge, and is no longer limited to Sharpstone Keep. You can now play a more competitive free challenge for bigger rewards.
For example, when you complete Harvestshield Mountain in Explore mode, then Hidden Forge stops being the free challenge, and Harvestshield Mountain becomes the new free challenge. The time between each free challenge attempt remains the same.
Change 3 - Shorter Challenges
Based on the popularity of the shorter challenges, we’ve now set all challenges to a maximum of 9 rooms.
We’ve made some changes to improve the gameplay and rewards in Battle Mode:
- Brawl chests are filled based on the number of opposing heroes defeated each game.
- Heroes selected for a Battle earn XP,
- New battle tooltips display opposing hero actions
- Increased Battle chest rewards
Change 1 - Brawl Chests
Brawl chest progress is now determined by the number of opposing heroes defeated, instead of collecting a set number of victories. Each defeated hero adds a point to your Brawl chest counter. This means you can still earn points for your Brawl chest even though you lost the battle.
As soon as you start to earn points for a Brawl chest, a 24-hour timer begins when you can complete that Brawl chest and complete a secondary reward - a pouch of gold, or a VIP Brawl Chest.
If the secondary reward is not completed before the timer runs out, then it is lost, and progress on a new Brawl chest begins.
Change 2 - Battle XP
All heroes who participate in a Battle gain XP at the end, no matter which player wins. The heroes on the winning player’s side gain bonus XP as well.
Change 3 - Battle Tooltips
A tooltip appears when opposing heroes take their action, such as a move, attack, or ability. The red d20 also flashes if the bonus effect for a move action or an attack has occurred.
Change 4 - Increased Battle Chest Rewards
The rewards for all Battle chests in all versions and at all arena levels have been increased
COMING SOON - A NEW HERO WILL JOIN THE PARTY!
