New “Reinforcements” Event

Added a new “Reinforcements” event. While the event is running, players can select a hero from a pool of heroes to trial. This event shall commence on Local Time: 22/01/2021 08:00 (Test Server). For specifics, please refer to the in-game rules.

Misty Valley Returns

A new Misty Valley round is about to commence. Adjustments have been made to several tasks. The next round shall commence on Local Time: 03/ 02/2021 08:00 (Test Server).

Dismal Maze Changes

Added Subscription Privileges and VIP Perks to the Dismal Maze game mode. Players with active subscriptions shall receive +100% rewards instead of +80% rewards for the next Dismal Maze if they miss an Arcane Labyrinth, the total number of times missed rewards can be accumulated does not change. Players with a VIP level of 13 or higher will have an additional chance to accumulate missed rewards if they miss Arcane Labyrinths.

The number of times Dura’s Tears can be used within the Dismal Maze shall now be raised in accordance with how many times the Arcane Labyrinth has been missed.

Mercenary Companion Points

Players shall now receive 10 Companion Points each time they successfully loan out a hero as a mercenary. Players can receive a maximum of 50 Companion Points per week using this method.


It is now possible to see which hero is equipping a certain Artifact by tapping on it within the player’s bag.

Custom Legendary Furniture Scrolls can now be sold in bulk at the Workshop.

Optimized the aesthetics of the Monthly Card chest.

Fixed an issue that was causing Mercenary Combat Ratings to display values that were lower than their actual values.

Hero Changes

  • Adjusted how the Attack Rating of the ability “Demonic Assault” is calculated. When stealing Attack Rating from a target, the full value stated by the ability is now stolen, ignoring any Attack Rating debuffs that the target may have currently been affected by.
  • Strengthened the values of the Exclusive Furniture Ability “Ghastly Hauntings”. Please see the in-game skill description for specifics.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause the final attack damage of “Stationary Drifter” to be lower than intended.
