Starting next Monday 11/18 at 10:30 AM PST and running until 11/20 at 6:00 PM, there will be two Dungeons available for all players level 12 and up.
We’ve iterated on a great deal since we first debuted the new map of Wraithfire Keep and the Dungeon event, based on all of your excellent and extensive feedback. We’d therefore like to share out our changes beforehand. First up we’ve removed the level requirements from all tiers and we’ve smoothed out the camera movements on the map itself for a more pleasant flying experience.
Next up we’ve reworked the rewards for your effort delving into Dungeons. Specifically the Dark Dungeon will reward either Dark Crafting Shards, Ice Crafting Shards, Black Pearls, or timer Speedups for each successful attack. We’ve substantially increased the amount of Black Pearls, with Tier 1 rewarding between 30-50 and Tier 20 rewarding between 600-1000. Meanwhile the Fire Dungeon, available at the same time, will reward Fire Crafting Shards, Earth Crafting Shards, Speedups, and Elemental Embers. Embers range from 19-31 at tier 1 and 372-620 at tier 20. We have slightly decreased the amount of shards rewarded per run since now you can better target which element you wish to find instead of getting 1 out of 5 at random.
Other changes include increasing the challenge of the bases of most tiers based on feedback, especially tier 10 and up, the key refill amount is now 1000 rubies instead of 800 to account for the reward changes, and we’ll be giving all players an extra Key Pack with 40 keys at the start of the event. This will allow any player with strong enough dragons to make it all the way to Tier 20 of one Dungeon, or let people make progress down both Dungeons if they so choose. Finally, we’ve increased the amount of damage the boss towers can take from a single source, and removed the self-healing from the Archer Boss so overall those types of towers should be more fun to face and destroy now while still posing a challenge.
Please keep in mind that Dungeons are a feature we’d like to continue improving and changing, so our tentative plan I’m about to describe is very much subject to change! We’d like to eventually to make them a weekly rotating part of the game, with a different elemental dungeon each week and your tier progress saved each time the Fire Dungeon comes back around for example. First however we’ll run these two Dungeons and gather more feedback. With everyone’s thoughts and help we can really make new parts of War Dragons shine, so please check out the Dungeon event next Monday and let us know your feedback. Thanks!
