Springveil Season Showcase - New Dragons and Updates


#1

Greet the Warm Days ahead with the Springveil Season!

 

On the first day that Winter finally begins to release its cold grasp on the Earth, Dragons across the land perch on the warm grass and stretch their heads to the sky. They breath in the fresh air that promises the return of Spring, and with it, the arrival of brighter days and longer nights! Some Dragons are even coming out of hibernation, and all are ready to light the world on fire.

 

The Springveil Season is the latest season to come to War Dragons, and will be available this week! Three new dragons make their debut among the spring blooms, as well as new Dragon Lord portraits and Dragon Riders to discover!


This season also brings a new way to obtain these items and other prizes in-game, as well as content updates around Runes and Glyphs. Crisis will be on the War Dragons Twitch Channel talking about all the new goodies of this season - tune in tomorrow at 3pm PT and follow the channel to be notified when the stream is live! If you cannot catch the Twitch stream, make sure to join the Facebook Live stream at 2pm PT on Thursday to check out all of the new fun to be had this season.

 

 


 

War Dragons - Mythos Collection

 

Meet the New Dragons of the Mythos Collection

 

Three season Dragons, each attuned to the natural forces of the Twilight Woodlands, are ready to greet the warmth of Spring and fly into battle! Read below for the first wave of these Mythos Dragons that will be available at the start of the Springveil season.

 

 

Aibrean

Avatar of Spring

 

“The tranquility of Spring always follows in its wake.”

 

For the Twilight Woodlands, Spring is a time of peace and growth. Battered by the Great Winter, the land needs a gentle touch to flourish once more. As the Avatar of Spring, Aibrean serves as both protector and caretaker during this tranquil time. As the land recovers from the effects of the cold, Aibrean patrols the Woodlands, leaving trails of budding flowers and happy, woodland critters in his wake.


Discount Information: Aibrean’s entire Season Branch will be discounted by 50% for the first two weeks it is available (March 7th - 20th).

Portrait: Ara, Twilight Huntress

 

In the dead of night, under a full moon, Ara strikes down the inhuman horrors that lurk in the woods. She works alone, concerned that eventually she too will succumb to the madness of the forest.

Nollaig

Avatar of Winter

 

His chilling presence guards those slumbering through the winter.

 

Nollaig’s appearance in the Twilight Woodlands signals the arrival of Winter. Nollaig brings with him the cold and frost but, as harsh it may be to his kin, the Winter also protects the Woodlands. While the other Avatars rest, the land is vulnerable to foreign threats. Nollaig’s bone-chilling presence keeps even the most ambitious invaders at bay.

 

Legendary Ice Warrior

  • Winter’s Bite - Active | White | 2 Rage

A druid that stalks the forest floor, hunting prey (or any unfortunate trespassers that cross her that cross her path) for her clan. Deidre is an expert tracker, and she never lets her quarry escape.

Corthanak

Ghostflame Wyrm

 

An ancient evil kept at bay by the Woodland Avatars.

 

With each Season’s passing, the folk of the Woodlands gather to pay homage to the Avatars. A great Bonfire is burned, piled high with wood etched full of magical runes. Simply tradition for many, but the ritual has a far greater purpose. For the burning runes invoke a spell to keep at bay the Woodlands’ darkest secret: Corthanak. An evil spirit born of fire, Corthanak will not rest until he is free and the world has been turned to ash.

 

Mythic Fire Sorcerer

An Entirely Community-Created Dragon Rider

 

In October 2017, Dragons artist Johannes concepted a new Dragon Rider live on stream, using community-voted features as his choices for direction. This past month, we’ve opened submissions for Dragon Lords to submit a name and backstory for this Rider, and the top 10 names were put to a final vote. As determined by over 2,700 votes, Oksana was chosen as the final name for this new Dragon Rider!

 

Thanks to everyone who participated, Oksana will be available during the Springveil Season as a part of her own season branch. She will also have a special Dragon Lord Portrait that will be available within her branch, as well - stay tuned in a few weeks for more information on Oksana!

 

 


 

 

The Springveil Season Branches

 

The branch system in the Springveil Season will introduce a new and exciting way to earn season prizes, portraits, and Dragon evolution stones. In the last season of Wintertide, the Mythic Dragon of the season was obtained by first full unlocking three of the Legendary Dragons that came before it. In this new season, Dragon Lords will have more freedom to choose one of two main branches, each built on different major prizes for the season. For the first time, Dragon Lords will get to decide which of these prizes they’d like to obtain through a Season and its many offerings!

 

 

The graphic above outlines how the Springveil Season will be structured. It starts with Aibrean, Nollaig, and Corthanak in the first pyramid-shaped branch, which will be available at the start of the season. All three Dragons can evolve up to the Harbinger Tier, and Aibrean, our first Spring Season Hunter, will be discounted for the first two weeks that it is available.

 

After that, Oksana will release in Week 3 of the season, and the first half of her branch will also be discounted for two weeks when she becomes available. Oksana is her own special branch and will have her own unique portrait.

 

Finally, in Week 6, the second wave of Mythos Dragons will become available. This second wave consists of a Hunter and Sorcerer Dragon, and their branches will flow into the second and final Dragon Rider of the Season, which will be more powerful than previous riders. The second wave of Dragons will also be able to evolve up to the Harbinger Tier!

 

 


 

Updates to Season Runes and Glyphs

 

Coming alongside the Spring update is a few new changes to each Dragon’s individual branch in relation to Runes, Rune Dust, and Glyphs. In this season, the final Mythic Rune for each Dragon’s branch will now be a Mythic Glyph. This should help your Dragons quite a bit when flying off into battle!

 

Additionally, we’re introducing a significant amount of Rune Dust back into the Season Branch prizes! In previous seasons, we heard that there was too much Rune Dust as prizes, and in the latest season, there was too little. This season, you’ll have just the right amount of Rune Dust introduced back in so there’s enough for you to use while not overtaking any other valuable prize slots.

 

Here’s the Epic and Legendary Runes and Mythic Glyphs for each of the initial Mythos Dragons that you can expect as Season Branch prizes:

 

Aibrean

 
  • Epic Rune of Renewal: Affects Spring's Renewal Healing Amount

  • Legendary Rune of Renewal: Affects Spring's Renewal Healing Amount

  • Mythic Glyph of Renewal: Affects Spring's Renewal Healing Amount and Cooldown

 

Nollaig

 
  • Epic Rune of Icy Breath: Affects Winter's Bite Duration

  • Legendary Rune of Icy Breath: Affects Winter's Bite Duration

  • Mythic Glyph of Icy Breath: Affects Winter's Bite Duration and Dragon HP

 

Corthanak

 
  • Epic Rune of Ghostfire: Affects Ghostfire Blast Damage

  • Legendary Rune of Ghostfire: Affects Ghostfire Blast Damage

  • Mythic Glyph of Ghostfire: Affects Ghostfire Blast Damage and increases Dark Flak Resist

First seat! Let me think edit this poster after reading :joy:

Edit: @PGCrisis ,

  1. if Ghostfire Blast is casted twice on the same island, do the disabling effective time stack?
  2. Is Ghostfire Blast a spell that can contain at dragons mouth instead of only able to cast when in range?

#3

The forums don’t like images larger than 3 MB :see_no_evil:


#4

Hmm hopefully the hunter will be good :see_no_evil:


#5

They were there when I started reading it then they got converted to links


#6

You weren’t the first post :innocent: It jumped :rofl:


#7

I was thinking the warrior is nice. I mean the spellset. (I already have Divine Hunter and Sorcerers)


#8

Dammit it shows on my Safari as I am…

Dammit.


#9

#10

#11

Cant wait to get Albrean😁


#12

Silly forums. I’ll go in and update them now. :wink:


#13

Is the hunter really going to leave trails of bunnies and flowers?


#14

#15

He does look nice, but I’m needing more hunters… :speak_no_evil:


#16

Rage and health for net one rage is pretty darn good at first glance. Get the runes and glyphs even better; hopefully not going to be my future nerfed dragon


#17

So glad for new rune dust, I completely ran out. :rofl::sob:


#18

@PGCrisis

Please talk with your team to make one of the rist 2 weeks, if first is feeding so 2nd a energy event.

It is very important for season planning that people have a choice when to open and spend there stuff…
Otherwise it will be really limited to just get food and xp packs… while energy is much more important for future…

Please take this suggestion very importantly to your friends at team.

Btw.: in past it happened too that events dont come every 4 weeks once… with fortification we had it that it once came at 5th , and later at 8th… so 5 weeks between and after that 3 weeks to compensate.

With breeding we had it once too… so let it be … for peoples choice and help


#19

just hope it doesn’t replace something we need even more. Not like THAT would ever happen


#20

Can any of the PG staff clarify if there would be a CC Immunity on towers affected by Nollaig’s Winter Bite.

4.5 second and 3 second cooldown. You can spam this if you have the rage. Also, does this mean that the ability will first cycle for the duration and then the 3 second cooldown will start or you can use it 3 seconds after using it to refresh the duration.

I and surely, everyone wants to know if towers can repeatedly be frozen whenever it gets hit by Nollaig’s winter bite.
