The long awaited 1.6!!

Post by Lagertha on Fri Apr 18, 2014 1:57 pm

I'm sure everyone already knows, but the long awaited, much anticipated 1.6 patch dropped early this morning after a few hours of maintenance.

This is the feature list taken from the Google Play app store:

  • Auto Battle for Guild Tower and Event Tower
  • New World Map
  • New Hero Candy Can, Breaker Glax and more.
  • New Mine
  • New feature Royal Doors
  • New feature Labyrinth


Auto Battle for Guild Tower and Event Tower
While I cannot yet say for Guild Tower at this time, of course, Auto Event Tower and Auto Guild Tower are the same as Auto Normal Tower. Same cost of one (1) token per step; same options for fight/praise, merchant, auto refine, et cetera; and seemingly same VIP/Lvl requirements. Two new options have been added, the option to stop auto tower after Courage War and the option to stop auto tower once courage bar is full.

Personally, I'd like to see an option to stop auto tower after encountering a new tower task in Normal Tower, and as well, it has been expressed by many the desire to have an option to stop Auto Event Tower after encountering an event boss because as it stands now, auto tower keeps going. If a player is AFK, he or she stands the chance of missing out on a lot of bosses.

Also to be noted, I assume to account for Auto Event Tower, they've raised max courage to 9999. Now it really is over 9000! *badjokebadumtiss*

New World Map
I am assuming there is now a third page of dungeons beyond Abyss Keep. However, since I am still muddling my way through Dire Keep, I have no firsthand knowledge of what it looks like. If anyone from older servers has any more information, please do share. Smile

New Hero Candy Can, Breaker Glax and more
Candy Can, Breaker Glax, Ophelia and Rathim are now available in the Market under Pink Exchange. Each hero costs 35 pink gems per piece and 20 pieces per hero. Pink gems can be obtained from Special and Supreme Summons (note: Special Summon != Special Event Summon, the latter--vouchers for which are obtained from event bosses and guild maske kills, does not give pink gems). However, it seems our initial assumption of one gem per summon voucher used is incorrect. The math behind gems per summon is still being worked out, however, gems can be obtained from free Special and Supreme summons. Regarding Candy Can is not yet known, but it has been proven that Breaker Glax can be obtained from Supreme Summon.

Other heroes,though not necessarily new heroes, have also been added to the Courage Market. 4* heroes Gerico II, Gorham and Gorham VIII, as well as 5* hero Erondragas have been added. 4* hero pieces cost 150 courage gems a piece, and Erondragas pieces cost 200 gems as like the preexisting 5* courage heroes.

Unfortunately, it seems they've removed the chance of obtaining Rathim and Ophelia pieces from Supreme Summons.

New Mine
New mine, presumably on the new page of dungeons.

New feature Royal Doors
Unlocked at Lvl90, The Royal Door is a collection of various tasks that update daily, such as collecting gold, fortifying and tiering gear and donating various items to obtain exp for the Royal Door and a new item called Essence. Essence may be used in the new Royal Door Exchange under the Market to purchase 5* evolving mats for 1200 essence a piece, 6* evolving mats for 18000 essence a piece, max lvl chest monsters for 200 essence a piece (up to ten [10] times a day) and various star level dungeon crystals.

Royal Door exp goes towards the lvl of the Royal Door. It seems the Royal Door lvl is the same across all servers, and all players from Evanston through Pravil contribute to the same door. Once the Royal Door lvls up, all players receive a Royal Door Chest (contents to be determined). As well as the chest, there is also a daily reward that can be claimed.

New feature Labyrinth
The Labyrinth is an interesting new feature. The player enters and fights waves of monsters on a single bar of HP. If I may say, imagine something like the Survival Mode from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Once you begin the Labyrinth, you may not change your team until you are defeated. After defeat, you may choose to revive. Players receive three (3) free revives a day, any more will cost diamonds. Fighting waves, the player may choose to fight with only x1 damage for free or spend diamonds to be able to deal more damage up to x3. Upon winning a stage, the player will receive gold, hero stones and event score points (separate from event tower score). There is a ranking board for labyrinth battles, similar to Event Tower, as well as rewards for accumulating different amounts of event score points. Like the arena, however, there is a cooldown period between every couple of labyrinth battles. The labyrinth (as well as the rankings) resets weekly like Event tower. It seems there is also a lvl requirement for this feature, but I am not sure as to what it may be.




This is all what I have observed thus far today. If I've missed any crucial details, please feel free to reply. Overall, I personally believe these new features add an exciting new element to the game, and thus far, no new bugs have been discovered (at least, none that have been mentioned on Jamel WC). I, for one, am rather pleased with this update.

Thanks for reading, and happy PKing!  bounce


EDIT:
Other new things I forgot to mention:


  • You can now purchase 1* fusion and refine stones in the shop under Emporium for 140 pal points each.
  • TapJoy offers have been moved from the Check-In menu. They are now under the Refill tab in the shop labeled under the Free Diamonds button at the bottom of the page.
  • 5* hero Estine is now available as a reward for obtaining VIP 1, which is quite disappointing for those of us who have already surpassed that level. As of this moment, there is no information on other methods to obtain her.
  • Super pearl cards (max lvl big pearls) have been added to the Guild Shop for 80 stars each for up to 10 pearls purchasable a day. Guild must be Lvl 20 before super pearls can be purchased.
  • Lots of changes to the chat filter.. "system," "making," "sm" and "&" are no longer censored, but many other rather ridiculous letter combinations are. For instance: "gai" in "again," "weirdo," "douche" in everyone's favourite insult "douche canoe" (Wink). Even combinations separated by spaces, like "s hit," which makes commenting about one's boss hits rather annoying.

Thank you for posting this. Smile
But where is the royal shop? I can't find it anywhere.

Great, now if they can get the Amazon version up, I'll be a happier camper.

Both the Royal Door and the Pink Gem exchanges can be found under the same Market as Booster and Courage exchanges.

I added a few other new changes that I forgot to mention earlier.

No thanks needed. It was my pleasure to be able to share the knowledge.
