Update 1.29 Patch Notes

A new update is coming to AFK Arena soon!

Here’s the patch notes for it.

New Faction

Added a new faction – The Dimensionals. Dimensional heroes can be soul-fused with any non-dimensional hero. After being fused, dimensional heroes will acquire the same ascension tier and level as their non-dimensional counterparts. Fused heroes may not be used in the same battle as their fused counterpart and cannot be acquired via card summons.

New Hero

Added the new Dimensional hero: Arthur – Pendragon. Players can acquire him from the Labyrinth Store or purchase him from the ‘Merchants’ page.

New Voyage of Wonders Adventure

Added the new Voyage of Wonders adventure: The Frosted Expanse, which will be available from 2019/12/06 00:00 (Test server).

Campaign Difficulty Adjustments

Adjusted the difficulty for the following campaign stages in order to make stage progression smoother: 4-36, 6-8, 6-12, 6-28, 7-28, 9-35, 9-38, 11-33, 11-38, 14-12, 23-24, 24-52, 25-56.

Misc Changes

Winter is here! Added a new wintery look to Ranhorn and the Dark Forest.

Reworked the player portrait frame design. Portrait frames are now all round in shape.

Enhanced the design of all in-game buttons.

Enhanced the ‘Event’ page’s appearance.

Made adjustments to multiple enemy formations within all faction towers of the ‘Towers of Esperia’.

Added new tutorials for multiple structures within ‘Ranhorn’ that appear when they are unlocked.

Added the ability to zoom in and out of the World Map.

Enhanced button sound effects.

Added a new emoji pack to the chat system. The game must be re-downloaded from your app store in order for this new feature to appear.

The daily quest chests will now reward players with a ‘Small Pile of Hero’s Essence’ after completing stage 16-30 instead of the previously fixed amount. This change will take effect after refreshing the daily quest page once the update has been implemented.

Hero Balance Changes

Numisu – The All Seer
  • Raised Numisu’s overall health value by 6%.
  • Raised the health value for all of the ‘Rejuvenating Totem’ ability’s totems. The previous health value of a totem was equal to 200% of Numisu’s attack rating, the new value is now 220%.
  • The ‘Rejuvenating Totems’ healing over time effect is no longer determined by Numisu’s attack rating value. The healing over time effect for the ability ‘Rejuvenating Totem’ now heals 3% of the healing target’s max health per second.
  • Optimized the summoning locations of the ‘Rejuvenating Totem’ ability. Rejuvenating totems will now be summoned in locations that are more difficult to attack.
  • Adjusted the health values of Offensive Totems. Offensive Totem health values were previously equal to 450%/500%/550% of Numisu’s attack rating per each respective level. The new health value for all levels of this ability is now equal to 650% of Numisu’s attack rating.
  • Optimized ability descriptions so that they now display clear values.

  • Piercing Bolt – Raised the damage coefficient from 120%/130%/140%/150% up to 140%/150%/170%/170% per each respective skill level.

  • Piercing Bolt – Level 4 of this ability now allows Vurk to recover 40 additional energy points per struck enemy when striking multiple enemies instead of the previous 30 points.
  • Invisibility – Increased the duration for which Vurk is invisible for from 6/6/7 seconds up to 8/8/10 seconds per each respective skill level.
  • Piercing Bolt – Optimized the ability description.
Khasos – The Unruly
  • Rabid Thirst – Raised the ability’s Life Leech effects from 10/10/15 points up to 15/15/18 points per each respective skill level.

  • Phantom Assassin – Attributes inherited by phantoms have increased from 85% up to 90%. Damage received by phantoms has been reduced from 180%/180%/140% down to 150%/150%/130% per each respective skill level.

Bug Fixes

Fixed a problem that was preventing ‘health recovery increased / decreased’ effects from being used in tandem with ‘healing over time’ abilities.

I enjoy many of the updates but that “horn” sound that plays while you’re doing pretty much anything in the Dark Forest area is really obnoxious. I guess it makes sense as part of the arena, but it also plays in the Arcane Labyrinth. It’s also a bit too loud IMHO.

“Dimensional heroes can be soul-fused with any non-dimensional hero. After being fused, dimensional heroes will acquire the same ascension tier and level as their non-dimensional counterparts. Fused heroes may not be used in the same battle as their fused counterpart”

Elaborate?

You could fuse a level 240 Ascended 5* Raine with Arthur, and he would then be level 240, Ascended 5*. However, you will not be able to use Arthur and Raine in the same formation from then on, nor will you be able to pull Raine from summons.

I highly doubt Arthur is going to be costing 45k Lab coins like the other heroes. We will only know when it’s on the test server.

Fused heroes may not be used in the same battle as their fused counterpart and cannot be acquired via card summons.

I think that’s referring to the Dimensional heroes can’t be acquired from card summons. Otherwise you’d never be able to ascend the non-dimensional character anymore if you fuse at say legendary or mythic. The idea is they both grow at the exact same rate together.

well.. this sentance talking about the ‘Fused heroes’, you can fuse a 5* what you cant ascend more, not? so you dont need more copy of that hero(es)

So I can use my Ascended 3 Star Gorvo whom i never use and pretty much fuse with Arthur and pretty much not have a waste of 3 star Ascended Character? NEAT!

You can take a Dimensional hero that is at E and then choose an already Ascended/or lower and fuse them together. This will most likely mean you lose the hero that was Ascended but the Dimensional hero will have inherited that hero’s Lvl and Ascension.

So if I take the new E Arthur Pendragon and then choose an Ascended Estrilda at lvl 240 for fusion. The Estrilda will be lost and Arthur will be at Ascended teir and LVL240.

That is what I’ve surmised.

I don’t think the fused character in your example Estrilda is “lost” you’ll still have her you just can’t use both Estrilda and Arthur in the same battle together. So you could use Estrilda for one battle and then Arthur in another battle by themselves but never together.

I think this means you only need to unlock the hero via a single copy and then decide on a hero you base his ascension/level on. The only price for this being that you can’t use both in the same fight anymore – meaning you’ll have to opt for a hero that doesn’t have good synergy with the dimensional one. Depending on how good the new 1 is that might be a great end-game use for the Shemira we all ascenced 😉

I’ve overleveled him too 240 3stars, and he struggles to do much before his ult, so i think it’s great!
