Resources used to activate and strengthen signature items can be found via AFK Rewards after completing Chapter 17.

New Building: Voyage of Wonders

Added the new structure ‘Voyage of Wonders’ to the Dark Forest page. When there are available voyages, players may embark on adventures and seek out new riches.

VOYAGE OF WONDERS will be a late game feature or ?

In my opinion, I think the best way to solve the constantly diluting pool is to remove legendary heroes from the elite pull rate. It’s extremely frustrating when I pull an elite only for it to be a hogan or Saveas, etc. I pull a fair amount of elites but half the time, they are one of these

Vincilios

I don’t complain. A elite fooder is equal a 9 rares, so is not that bad.

Instead of adding a lot of heroes every month, why dont u change the 100 Tavern Tokens to a hero selector? Or changed it to 150-200 tokens hero selector? Lol

I second this notion. New heroes aren’t just going to become mainstays overnight because people are going to take forever ascending them without a way to get a specific one they want. Seriously, my Lucius has been wallowing in Epic tier since forever because I keep getting Numisu from pulls.

Should I hold off on summoning until the new heroes are out or better to summon before so I can ascend the ones I have?

if more heroes are going to be added, i wish they’d make the wishlist more accurate. i keep receiving ascended tier heroes that weren’t on there

Inept

That’s not how wishlist works. You can receive any hero still but it applies a very small priority to the ones you pick.

Those are some cool changes, I’m really interested in the Voyage of Wonders feature. But please guys, stop introducing new heroes already!

(I would love to see a guild war option)

Also a guild raid platform where each guild member adds a hero to a slot, (limit 5-10 slots – maybe even more) then the match auto plays at a certain time and the replay is viewable. Also loot!!

Great patch! New Content and new accessible items! Love it! Now I’m just missing a better rental system which does not require me to open an office to deal with all the requests (i have lots of ascended heroes on a relatively new server). And heroes are being pumped out a little too fast for my taste, but i don’t care much.

I don’t understand the Fixed a bug that allowed players to open the guardian’s screen without needing to defeat the guardian within the Peaks of Time adventure “The Solar Plane”. What guardian screen

Some nice additions, for which we are very grateful!
But still nothing to deal with the biggest problem: the more heroes there are, the more difficul it is to get enough specific copies to upgrade the heroes we use.
PLEASE, give us a way to get specific heroes!

They do, there are PLENTY of ways to acquire guaranteed heroes in the game.

Heck, some of the MOST powerful such as shemira/nemora are easily bought just from daily playing.

Maybe they could add even more heroes to these respective stores, but I dont think its neccessary to add every single one as a direct purchase.

Nemora Shemira Khasos Anthalia Ezizh Fawkes all for free they are fking strong. Just play Daily 1 or 2 hours… Even mystic is free because Guilde boss. Yeha maybe Some chars are hard 2 gain but if u get 100% ur wish Char.. Everyone will be top list and they don’t earn money. Even with 100% Elite ind maybe 2x 10er Draws Destorys the balance…. Use ya brain and play active

Agreed. For everyone who is saying, “Just play and bide your time” I think you might be missing the point. The way ascension mechanics work, you need a LOT of copies of a single rare hero to get that hero up to a level where its playable. This creates TWO problems: (1) non-whale players really don’t have any reason to be excited about new heroes, because it will be months or more until we get the 4 copies needed to achieve Mythic+ level. By then, if we’re still playing, other heroes will be at Ascended+ anyway, so what is the… Read more »

Agreed with you. I pay a monthly card. Not a whale player. And it is taking forever to get a hero ascended. Yes, i do have one ascended in the past 3 month. You guessed, it is Shemira! because otherwise i keep getting a bunch of useless copies of all of the other heroes. No way i get 8 copies of a different hero, unless i pay thousands of dollars. I currently play daily, but you cant expect me to do the same for 1-2 years before i can get at least a full team of ascended heroes. That is… Read more »

What is this Hero Choice Cards feature? Do we get to pick any hero we want or just a label thing?

It’s just some kind of a visual change, you still get a random one.
