Original Hero: Artiste

Special features: new effects

Legendary talent changes

We closely revised all the legendary talents and decided to unify them so that talents of the same row grant the same growth in stats.

Now, all talents of the same row have identical:

  • indicator of basic stats;
  • growth per each upgraded star.

Also, we slightly improved:

  • talents of the first row;
  • talents, increasing Life Drain.

The change doesn't affect talents with an active ability.

New collectible talent

Find a new collectible talent, Legendary Barrier, in the Talent Collection!

Legendary Barrier

  • required row: VI;
  • Prime-cost: 1600;
  • increases Stamina or Will, whichever is greater, by 27;
  • for 2 sec reduces all damage, taken by the Hero, by 90%, and deals 300 damage to the attackers.

For now, the talent is unattainable in Forge / Talent Garden or in the Collection. But soon a special quest chain will appear in Praya. You'll need to complete the chain to receive the new talent. Stay tuned!

New colors to display damage types

We changed the colors of the figures that are showed above the Hero and opponents when damage is dealt or taken. This should improve the perception of the game and make it easier to decide which defensive stat is better in a particular situation.

  • Physical damage is displayed in beige figures
  • Magic damage is displayed in blue figures
  • True damage still remains menacingly red.

That's how the changes look in the game:

Fire Drake

Ready for the incredible adventure of this three-headed serpent all around the Prime Zone?

Meet the new Fire Drake!

Now, the team who conquers Fire Drake gets his powerful support on the map.

Fire Drake leaves his den and heads to one of the lanes, helping Heroes to destroy towers and defeat enemy soldiers and Heroes.

  • At the same time, Fire Drake still grants the buff which now works like an aura around Drake.
  • Additionally, the power of the buff is reduced.

Note: the serpent is immune to buffs, healing, and all crowd control effects except stun.

Fair

During the previous Fair-related event, you left us lots of messages saying that you wish to receive talents with 8 or more stars more often since many Heroes are already equipped with 7* talents.

That is why we decided to permanently diversify the Fair with abrasives that allow you to upgrade talents to 8, 9 and 10 stars!

 

Now you can decide for yourself which talent for your favorite Hero to upgrade and by how many stars.

Naturally, the cost of such valuable entities remains rather high:

  • Top-quality abrasive that upgrades a talent to 8 stars — 290-350 Prime Crystals.
  • Enchanted abrasive that upgrades a talent to 9 stars — 410-500 Prime Crystals.
  • Unique abrasive that upgrades a talent to 10 stars — 550-650 Prime Crystals.

Artiste

Scroll-related abilities were reworked. Now the Heroine will play out in fresh colors on the battlefield!

Master's Colors

  • Is no longer connected with the scrolls.
  • The ability effect is combined with its upgrade: the Heroine's attack (after the talent was learned) now deals 6-73 damage, apart from the main percentage amplification.

War Paint

  • The talent was deleted. Instead, the Heroine received an upgrade for the Master's Colors passive ability — Contrast.

Contrast

Once 15 paints are received, the Heroine paints a magic scroll in the following order:

  1. Bird Scroll
  2. Starfall Scroll
  3. Divine Scroll
  4. Light Scroll
  5. Twin Scroll

Additionally, Artiste receives bonuses from every scroll (regardless of how they were received — from the mini-game or her passive ability):

2. Starfall Scroll:

Talents

The Absolute Dominance subset

Your favorite and irreplaceable axes were significantly reworked and became more versatile as a result.

We recommend you to pay special attention if you prefer hunting the Touched to hunting enemy soldiers.

  • First of all, all talents now have a similar cap of the received bonus Prime — 1000. This way, you can equip your Hero with all six axes but you will still receive a maximum of 1000 Prime per battle.

Absolute Dominance

  • Deals 15 bonus damage to soldiers and the Touched
  • Grants 5 bonus Prime per kill.

  • Deals 12 bonus damage to soldiers and the Touched
  • Restores Health (12 over 3 sec) and Energy (3 over 3 sec) whenever a Hero hits the Touched
  • Grants 7 bonus Prime per kill.

The number of active talents in the row also changed to three. They have one common cooldown — 60 sec.

Fury Dominance

  • Increases Strength or Intellect, whichever is greater, by 10
  • Deals 550 damage to the target soldier or the Touched
  • Grants 40 Prime if the target is killed with the talent.

Prime World Team
