Patch 9.14.2

17 April 2014


In this update we have rebalanced Kiton, fixed some more bugs, and added additional flags.


Since Kiton’s appearance was resulting in premature large-scale battles that were significantly affecting the rest of the game, the following changes have been introduced:

  • The amount of Prime received by each member of a team after defeating Kiton has been reduced from 300 to 250.
  • The amount of bonus Prime received by the hero who deals the final blow to Kiton has been reduced from 200 to 100.
  • In the new version, Kiton appears after five minutes rather than after three as before. Since he appears later, his starting level has been increased by one.

Audio in combat

  • New music tracks have been added in the patch. They are set to cycle during battle time.
  • A new system has been introduced that changes the music when certain events take place, such as when a tower is destroyed or a hero is resurrected.
  • The victory and defeat music has been changed.
  • A bug that caused the sound effects for the Power and Upgrade glyphs not to play has been fixed.
  • New sound effects have been added for all successful ranged attacks by heroes.

  • A bug that made it impossible to click on the button that blows up an artifact if two heroes were touching it at the same time the last time it exploded has been fixed.
  • A bug that caused the Fire Drake not to attack anyone if the first targets it saw were Magic Lanterns has been fixed.

Jaeger / Wolf Dancer

  • A number of bugs relating to the behavior of Jaeger/Wolf Dancer’s wolves with other wolves after a spear had been thrown (sometimes they wouldn’t pursue the target or would pursue it for too long) have been fixed.


  • A bug that caused the Taunt status to remain on one Wanderer until he died if two Wanderers used the Decisive Attack talent with the Challenge upgrade on one another at the same time has been fixed.

  • The rewards for completing the New Storage and Second Floor quests have been improved. The player’s rewards for completing them are now the unique Haste and Natural Health talents respectively. Players who had already completed these quests will have the talents added to their libraries.
  • Quests that required the player to save up a certain amount of a certain resource have been removed, as have those that required the player to build a Manufactory/Spinnery or recruit friends to help with their construction. Players who were already making progress toward the completion of these quests when the update was applied will have them replaced by the next quests in the questline.
  • The quest A New Clash has been removed. Players who had the quest active when the update was applied will have it replaced by the next quest in the questline.
  • Completing the Honing your Mastery quest now requires the player to reach Mastery Level 3 with any hero rather than Mastery Level 4 as before.
  • Completing the Confirming Rumors quest now requires that the player complete only one quest from the Tavern/Teahouse rather than three as before.
  • Players who had active quests that were changed by the update will receive them again.

  • A number of bugs that caused certain players to be listed twice after a server update have been fixed.
  • A bug that caused the animation around the portraits of heroes and players to be displayed incorrectly when they were added to a free building slot has been fixed.
  • The position of the clan abbreviation over players’ names in the pre-match window has been adjusted.

  • A bug that was causing heroes to become visible to the enemy team if invisibility was applied onto them when they were already invisible has been fixed. This problem was especially common among heroes whose class talents enabled them to become invisible if the effect had not worn off yet.
  • In Outpost mode it was unclear which area of the Keepers base allowed healing and which did not. In the new version, the healing area has now been outlined with a stone base.
