UPDATE / ADDITIONS[edit | edit source]

Important[edit | edit source]

  • New Hostile Territory has been added: Magnican Lakes.
  • Added Photomode - a system that allows players to pause the game to take screenshots. By pressing the End button, you will be able to move the camera around your character. It will also “pause” the game at any moment: in the middle of a fight, when riding a mount or falling from a height. The character will continue to perform actions (be attacked by monsters, move forward or fall down), but as long as photomode is active, the picture will not change.
  • Added visions of legendary rings to the Market. It is a special item that allows you to obtain a legendary ring.
  • Enemies and bags no longer drop the “Loot” item. The profit in credits from these sources is increased in proportion to the profit you would have made if you sold the Loot.
  • The divine spark limits are now tied to specific armies. When you gain a certain number of sparks from the avatar of an army, you will no longer be able to receive them from this avatar until the next time it arrives. New limits are added with each new invasions (divine sparks for the first time you complete an invasion adventure are not counted towards the limits) on condition that the invasion is led by the avatar. Once the invasion is over, the limits are no longer reset. All limits for previous invasions are set automatically. For example, if you have never killed the Integrator, your divine spark limit will be 800 when you log in.
  • Removed Myrrh Drops from the game. Upgrading obelisks now requires Victor’s Medals. You will also receive Victor’s Medals when adding funds to the Pantheon account.
  • Exchanged Myrrh Drops for Victor’s Medals at the rate 2 Medals for 1 Drop.
  • Activating divine form will automatically complete all optional tasks in Squad and Group adventures with creatures of the current invasion.
  • Enabled the penalty system for passive behaviour in Battles and for leaving them early: If a player “sabotages” battles on a regular basis, they will stop receiving rewards for completed Battles unless they complete a few active Battles without leaving them early.
  • Added PvP trophies. PvP trophies are essentially the same as ordinary trophies, but the bonuses they provide work only in Battles against other immortals. These bonuses include:
    • Damage dealt is increased.
    • Damage to shields is increased.
    • Damage to stunned targets is increased.
    • Incoming damage is reduced.
  • PvP trophy fragments are obtained by participating in Rated 5x5 battles. At the end of a stage, all team members will receive a bag of equipment. The number and quality of fragments depend on the rank gained by the team.
  • Added the Laboratory tab: Changed the system for researching resistance and accessing invasion adventures. Expanded the atlases of invasion armies. You can read about it in our Laboratory Preview.
  • Added a new item: Research Grant. It is a consumable that allows you to receive more knowledge for research in the Laboratory.
  • Increased bonuses for all trophies of armies.
  • Increased the maximum damage of Crushing Blow from 25% to 30%.

Invasions[edit | edit source]

  • Added the “Urgent Call” system.
  • It is now possible to change the rewards in Invasion Adventures using Variatrons.
  • You can no longer obtain Eidos’ as a reward for defeating monsters in adventures with avatars.
  • Once the research limit for an army is reached, players will receive Energy Modules for researching Eidoses. This research cannot be accelerated.

Mechanoids[edit | edit source]

Screening Field Generator[edit | edit source]
  • Improved the map for the Screening Field Generator adventure.
  • Hammer Tanks had their shooting range and defense against groups of Oculats increased.
  • The pause between waves of monsters will no longer exceed 12 seconds (15 seconds for special troops).
  • Removed the emission of the field generator that applies a negative effect to the group once a minute. There are now small Mechanoid emitters on the map with electric fields that are activated if there are players nearby.
  • If the whole party dies, the adventure is no longer completed automatically with the D rating. You can resurrect and continue the fight.
  • Weakened the last two waves that come from both sides at the same time. They have less antitank Oculats now, and there are two common Scissors accompanying the elite Rethiariuses instead of reinforced ones.
  • Generator activation cost has been slightly increased, but it can still be interrupted by damage or control.
Integrator[edit | edit source]
  • Added a full-screen map of the adventure.
  • Fixed the error where the spark reliquary was not given for the first time the adventure was completed.
Mechanoid Waves[edit | edit source]
  • Improved the map of the area.

Reapers of Death[edit | edit source]

  • Disabled the Plague Carriers task in Darnic Village.
Dark Ritual[edit | edit source]
  • Changed the appearance of Asmodeus.

Phytonides[edit | edit source]

  • Changed the mechanics of Lianas for the optional task. They now capture a character for 20 seconds instead of 120, and their damage is increased 5 times. When the group exits combat, Lianas will disappear after a few seconds.

Pantheon[edit | edit source]

  • There is now a quorum when a vote on changing the emblem is initiated: if not enough commanders have voted, the result of the vote is “no changes”.
  • The first level of ether projector now provides 5 energy modules daily to all pantheon members that meet the requirements.
  • Construction resources received for Adept missions are now given as an item that can be activated from within the Bag. If the mission fails, construction resources will not be added.

Pantheon Wars[edit | edit source]

  • Added Hyperion Modules: Commanders can pick up to 3 modules (out of 9) which will be sent into orbit if their Pantheon wins the tournament. Each selected module increases the amount of Primary Energy gained (points that are used to determine the winner in the Space Program) by 5%. Commanders will be able to change their choice in the future.
  • Space Program technologies are now available: Resources required for researching them can be earned by all players in all adventures for Pantheons. The technologies affect the amount of Primary Energy gained by the Pantheon and can be researched even if your Pantheon does not control any territories. This allows all game communities to join the Space Program and, at the very minimum, win participation rewards. IMPORTANT: Once a technology is chosen, it is irreversible.
  • Added an interface for the Pantheon rating based on the accumulated Primary Energy. It will be updated once every 24 hours.
  • Updated the tabs of the Pantheon interface.
  • As a reward for a successful attack on a temple during the Pantheon Wars, the attacking Pantheon receives Primary Energy in the amount proportionate to the defender’s position in the league.
  • The minimum bid in the auction for the Silver League Pantheons is reduced from 800,000 to 100,000 credits.
  • Tessa’s Sparks have been renamed to Primary Energy.
  • Primary Energy is now added for successful attacks on Naire Temple during the Pantheon Wars. The amount depends on the temple’s position in the league (from 75,000 to 22,500). Each subsequent Pantheon War in the season brings 100% more Primary Energy.
  • Added a timer for incomplete teams. If there are less than 5 players in the team, a timer is activated (available in the team interface). If there are still less than 5 when the time is out, the team is no longer listed in the Pantheon rankings. Once the team is full, it will appear in the rankings again.
  • The restriction on joining a new team has been reduced from 7 to 3 days.

  • You can no longer reset Weariness by changing groups.
