Update 12.4: New Skills/Hero lvl/buffs/troops…

Update 12.4 hit the stores a few days ago. And like most updates, it added quite some new features/additions to the game, or showcased what is to come shortly. In no particular order the updates are:

  • 3 New offensive Hero Skills: Spearhead II, Bullseye II, Close Quarters II. Their information has been added to the Hero Skills article.newskills
  • Permanent debuffs added, in addition to the perm buffs. Weapon Disarm (attack debuff) and Armor Exposure (life debuff) items function in similar fashion to BC/SW.newbuffs
  • New T4 wall troop: Stone Sheperds (elven) / Gates of Erebor (dwarf). Apparently they are set up as equivalent to Stone Giants for Wall Troops, with massive health, although first testing showed inconclusive results. At the moment, only six can be trained once. Adding to the Wall Troop article as soon as more concrete info comes out.newwalltroop
  • New Tactical Troop: Enchanters. A new troop sporting both high defense and offense stats. Although not shown anymore, lvl 120(!) is needed to train these. More info will be added to the TT article as soon as more info becomes available.new tt
  • Increased player lvl. There is good reason to think (see above) it won’t be long before the player level cap is raised from 100 to at least 120, to train the Enchanters.
  • Increased Hero lvl.  Another cap raised is Hero lvl. A glitch a few days ago enabled players to level their Heroes beyond 250. This was then revoked, but with the update it is now official: Hero levels now go up to 280!

So that’s it for now. Let me know how you feel about the new stuff, or share any information you might have 🙂

New Hero Skills!

A small addition to the Hero Skill library came today (I presume as I just noticed), in the form of level II versions of the offensive skills: Close Quarters, Spearhead, and Bullseye. All three Skills seem to follow the same pattern as their defensive level II counter-parts, in terms of Skill % benefit and upgrade costs. Full information on the new skills will be added to the Hero Skill article asap.newskills

Were Scrolls removed from Extra-ordinary Mines?

dwarf pickLately, I’m having trouble mining Scrolls from extra-ordinary mines. I know mines have undergone some changes, most notably in the number of Tokens, but I want to know whether I’m just really unlucky, or if Scholar Scrolls have really been removed from them. Please let me know if you still find them in mines..

Download the Gear set lists yourself

gandlaf staff 1So I have been thinking. In the previous update, I stated the top30 images of best sets would follow tomorrow. Not so. Instead, if you follow the link given below, you can download a RAR file containing the 2 spreadsheets with processed gear combinations, one offensive and one defensive.

Now you can look at the full lists yourself, play around, adjust the numbers for your specific random rolls, whatever, it is up to you. I just hope somebody has some use for it…The link will also be added to the Best Sets article.

Best Sets updated

bilbo cloakFinally the Best Sets article has the level 2 Legendaries added to it. As I predicted, the best sets are pretty much identical to those before, just with the level 1’s swapped for levels 2. Remember this for when higher levels are announced and the article isn’t updated immediately (assuming the trend from 1 to 2 continues in 3). The top 30 images will be added tomorrow.

Hero Skills updated

skill farming II have just released an updated version of the Hero Skills article. Although it was put out pretty soon after Hero Skills were released, no major updates have followed, leaving much of the diagrams on Skill overview and Upgrade costs empty. Took a while for me to realize this, so there you go. Only a few numbers are still missing, if you happen to know them, please leave a comment.

Next up is the Best Sets article. I am putting the new gear ** in my spreadsheets and will probably update the article tonight when I have time. Stay tuned and happy Hobbiting!

Best Sets and Legendary level **

tauriel bowI know one of the articles desperate in need for an update (again) is the Best Sets article. Although containing all level 1 Legendary gear, the level 2 upgrades haven’t been included yet. Now I have two things to say…or three basically, if you count “I’m gonna do them don’t worry“.

First, because ALL the new gear is basically just the level 1 Legendary gear slightly improved (not even basically actually, just fact), I still believe the Best Sets article at the moment is still relevant enough to use, at least as a starting point. I honestly do not expect any major changes when adding in the level 2’s.

That said, I am gonna update them, but as I have been away for some time, I’m not 100% sure which level 2’s have already been introduced. So what I am asking here is to describe in the comments what pieces have been released, and there base stats and specific Hero bonus. The four bonus attributes are already covered in the Hero equipment article, so I don;t need that, unless you find errors in them of course.

Thanks for being patient and see you soon with an updated article.
