Meet the Shaman!

Everybody now knows that the new character in the upcoming expansion will be an Orc Shaman…

But what will he be like?

The Shaman will come with some brand new tricks. There will be a few completely new card attributes – shape shifting abilities and cunning tactics. For example the Shaman’s special card will allow you to see what your opponent has in his hand (oops, spoiler)!

The expansion will come with new campaigns for all the other characters and a brand new heroic card!

So new character, new cards, new attributes, new combos, new campaigns and also lots of balance changes across the other characters.

Stay tuned!

Special cards improvements

When you level up, your hero card is now going to improve! This is a long anticipated feature. We really want more heroes to go above level 70 so they upgrade their special card to its maximum 🙂

This feature also addresses the issue some players have. There are just too few high level heroes in the ranking. As the hero card now becomes really strong and its combos even stronger we hope more player will be seduced by this power and allow themselves to level up!


Second expansion!

We are so excited to announce that the long waited second expansion has been released, it features:

  • A brand new Elf Archer character + his campaigns, cards, combos and skills;
  • A third campaign for every character;
  • Some brand new cards and combos for the other characters;

Here is an image of the new character!
