The Major Update (2019-02-12)

The update went live on 12th Feb 2019 through the release of a new client app (update via App Store required). After you update, you will not see any of your friends or guildmates who haven't updated yet! They will automatically reappear on your list as soon as they update, there is no need to resend any invites.

The Changes

These changes are supposed to bring new life to the Portal Summon Gem Portal and allows more access to all our awesome heroes!

With the way the game is currently, it's tough for new players to identify which heroes are strong. On top of that, a lot of heroes are missing from the portal making them harder than we want to unlock and power up. So, we're gonna fix it! Starting no sooner than Feb. 7, 2019 the following things will be true:

  • The Portal Summon Gem Heroic Portal includes all Heroes new and old (except Aria token 0 Aria, who will remain an Aether Shop exclusive hero).
  • Every time you get a new hero in the Heroic portal, it will automatically be a full unlock at 1 star (★). (Prior to the update Heroes had different base stars from ★ to ★★★ stars)
  • The Heroic portal will ONLY include Heroes. (no more Evos, Gems, and other goodies)
  • Heroes are now split into rarities.

To make all this possible we had to make quite a few changes to the game. Some of them you may like, some you may not. To be as transparent as possible, here are the upcoming changes in detail:

VIP and Honor portals

Any free VIP or Heroic Summons players had in their account were automatically be converted to Portal Summon Gem Heroic and Portal Summon Gold Great Summons when the gane was updated. The additional Heroic Summons had be sent out via Boss Mail.

  • The Vip Icon VIP portal and the Portal Summon Honor Honor portal are gone.
  • Existing VIP Summons had be converted to Heroic Summons at a rate of 1.25x.
  • Existing Honor Summons had be converted to Great Summons at a rate of 1x.

Hero Rarity

Hero Rarity has been introduced. The rarity is indicated by decorations of the Hero's token and portrait. The rarities are (highest to lowest):

  • Legendary Hero - 30% stat boosts to Attack, Defense, Health and Skill
  • Gold Hero - 15% stat boosts to Attack, Defense, Health and Skill
  • Silver Hero - 5% stat boosts to Attack, Defense, Health and Skill
  • Bronze Hero - No stat boosts

Changes: There are now stat boosts and decorations, and varied chances for Portal Summons.

In general, the higher the tier, the stronger the hero.

Chances of Heroic Portal Summons

Hero rarity determines a hero's appearance rate and how many tokens you receive from Portal Summons if you already own a hero.

Hero Ascensions Locks

From release of this update until December 18, 2019, Ascensions required a certain star level based on Hero Rarity. If you already had a hero ascended below the new star requirements (prior to the update), the ascensions will NOT be undone.

Update: Since December 18, 2019, the unpopular Star5 Icon star requirement for Ascensions as described above has been removed with a game update. You can fully ascend every hero at Star1 Icon star rating 1, no matter of the Hero Rarity.

Vip Icon VIP Rewards

  • Portal Summon Gold Great Summons and Daily Rewards are no longer adjusted by VIP Rank. Change: There had been multiplier for Daily Rewards, and 1 extra summon per day.
