I know this season is about to end. There are a few things we can guess will be in the next one, like more difficulties, different max area, a new map, etc. Is there anything that you are willing to tell us that might be new for the next season that is not already something we would expect due to previous seasons? Thanks for your time

Actually players mentioned the formations don't need to be changed up, so we currently aren't planning on changing any of those.

Just changes to the drop rates again. We're keeping this a simple season update.

Hello Erika :)

i like the new goldhound skin... will there be new skins in the shop more often now?

and i have some suggestions for future skins:

Toothfairy Almquist !!!

Evil Santa

Winged Mister Monkey (like in wizzard of oz)

or an alien/animal skin for Xyg, maybe something that looks like an Ewok or a Wookiee

thanks for your time :)

Hi Made_In_The_80s,

Glad you're liking the Goldhound skin. It was pretty cool to see Alexis' interpretation of "Undead Goldhound."

We've got another skin instead of Golden Epic weekend promo coming up in September. Then we'll review the data and see if it makes sense to keep doing promos like that or if we need to find something else to offer.

Thank you for the skin requests. I'll add them to our list of potential skins.

Cheers! :)

Yes, finally! A tank healer! Shark boy is perfect for missions. Please continue to make more hybrid crusaders. :)

I know it was weeks ago but thanks for buffing Langley during the Cherry Dreams weekend buff. I was able to tackle Tier 3 thanks to the huge DPS boost!

I'm glad to hear Regent has been useful. We'll keep experimenting.

That's great. Yeah, Langley weekend buffs tend to bring the power. :D

Good morning, and thanks for the code as always!

I missed the stream on Tuesday, had somewhere else to be at that time. Hoping to have a better shot at seeing it live at the new day/time going forward.

Good morning Croq!

No worries, hope to see you during the new time slot. :D

Out of curiosity: Who is to blame for Euodia's skin? If it's not you, could you whap them with a hat for me?

So you don't like Angel Euodia? Or is there something else wrong with it?

How's the new talent going? Is there anything close or is it still far away?

No ETA, but there will be new talents released before the end of the year.

Hey Erika,

merging runes is easier with slot merging. But since only the top levels of runes are merged/proposed, there is no overview how many runes of a specific level are hidden in the remaining low levels. Many players, especially those buying rune chests want to know the amount of i.e. level 5 runes they have, to determine the runes to be distributed equally on specific crusaders. So it would be very nice to have a quick rune merge option with shift+ctrl keys.

-click on a rune while holding shift+ctrl => merge all lower runes of that kind to that level (with confirmation window)

This would be a huge Qol feature saving so much time and mouse clicking/dragging

Hi umdos,

It's meant to only use the highest level runes it can for the merge, so you still have the little ones left to slot on other Crusaders.

But I'll add another vote for additional rune merging to the item on the suggestion list and we'll see what happens.

Hi Erika,

Did you realise that the stream starts at 1 o'clock at night for European players? Most of them are fast asleep at that time :(

We're aware, but the game is a global game, so the time will be inconvenient for some players at any time we schedule it. We do have the VODs on Twitch and Youtube for players to watch if they miss it live.

I suppose we could look into possibly gathering some questions before the stream from players who won't be able to attend, and see if that helps.

can you change the crusader shop so that it shows the crusader's rune effects, too? the 5th slot is the most obvious offender to this, but some people might want to know if a crusader could be extra useful in missions or something like that, too

It might be something we can do. I'll discuss with the team if it makes sense to implement.

Hi Erika! Little late to the party! Just a big thanks for providing these forums for polite requests and gratitudes.

I think it's wonderful to have a hotkey for various menus, because clicking sucks xD
I don't think we have a hotkey yet for rune and skin menus. That'd be a nice QoL addition. Please and Thank yous!

Hi navilapiano,

You're welcome. Thank you for coming by. :)

Hot keys for those menus are something that come up a bunch. I'll poke Wilson to see if we can sneak that in for an upcoming update.

Cheers!

Hi Erika,

Please call the new crusader simply Chelloh or Chellow. :D

Hi rjakubec,

They already have a name, but we'll keep it in mind for the skin name maybe.

Wasn't really sure where to put this suggestion but it's kinda simple...

Milgrid the Mining Mage has an ability called "Deepest Dwarf" - it's really hard to tell you've purchased this ability because of how the icon is grey even after you buy it.

Thalia, the Thunder King has 2 abilities with the same icon (Lightning Rod and Storm Rider). Considering most people are only interested in Storm Rider, it'd be nice if these abilities had different icons. It's his most important ability.

Thank you for the feedback on their icons.

I'll add it to our suggestion list to consider and we'll see what happens.
