Welcome to Update 1.15, brave adventures!
For the month of December we have an action packed update filled with new Campaign levels, new Events, a new Clan Bonus offer and a Reminder system. Just like last time, you will also find the Event Calendar for December at the end! I hope you all brought your best anorak and that you have your sea-legs ready, because I can hear the ocean.. Is someone chanting about rum? Does that man over there have a peg leg? Are those.. Pirates?!
New Event - Treasures of Darbad
Once every year, the treacherous winds that sweep the Sea of Teeth subside and leave the normally inhospitable waters open to explorers, treasure hunters - and pirates. Somewhere within the ever-changing archipelago lies Darbad, the fabled island of treasure, waiting to reward whoever unlocks its mysteries and braves its dangers. More information on the event will follow, but it will of course include new heroes, new gear, a new spell, new skins, new portraits and new frames.
New Mini Event! - 20p Leaderboard
For some of our mini-events you will now compete on a leaderboard against 19 other players with a similar player level to yours. This allows for more intense competition, and gives you a better opportunity to get that top spot!
New Campaign level - The Nexus
After escaping the Dimension of Dread, the Darkfire Heroes travel to the ancient city The Nexus which is recognized for its strange magical energies. It's no secret that the Dark Fey is drawn to this area, but lately there has been disturbing whispers throughout the free lands. Rumor has it that the Dark Fey is trying to harness the power of the Nexus for their evil plots - and they have brought along some of their strongest warriors: the Myconid Warrior!
Clan Bonus Offers
Some offers in the shop will now come with an extra bonus which your clan members will receive. For example, if you buy a Clan Bonus Offer for gems - your clan members will also get some gems in addition to the gems you would normally receive! These unique offers will have a shield-marker on them to indicate that it's a Clan Bonus Offer. This is a great way to help your Clan mates out!
To support new players we have built a reminder system that helps them explore the whole game, so that they don't forget to join a clan, try out the PVP Arena or earn some valuable essence in the Elemental Dungeon. Luckily, it will also benefit more experienced players, because they will also now get a reminder if they for example have forgotten to start an expedition.
Clan Chest Improvement
Getting a Clan Chest all the way to level 8 and upwards is a real feat of strength, and deserves a cool reward. From this update forward, due to a lot of feedback on the subject from the community, Clan Chests above level 8 will have guaranteed Epic cards in it! So make sure you do your absolute best to push that Clan Chest all the way up to level 10!
Pinned Clan Messages
Clan leaders and Co-leaders will now be able set up a message which will remain at the top of the chat window, similar to a news sticker or a pinned message! Very useful for wishing your clan mates a good weekend or reminding them to play the event!
Front page improvements
The event area of the front page of Darkfire Heroes is now a "carousel", this means that it is now capable of handling multiple events at the same time!
Mini-events for new players
Brand new players will now get a series of mini-events which aims to help them get into the game easier!
Long start-time and connection problems in PvP
We are aware that there have been some connection related issues with PvP, one of the noticeable things is that PvP games now take considerably longer to start. This update contains our first experimental solutions to this problem and we hope that it will make the PvP experience more pleasant!
Below is the Event Calendar for December.
Please know that the calendar is subject to change and might become outdated over the course of the month.
