*Joveth Note: The next major game update is coming very soon! We’re previewing some of the biggest new features ahead of time so players can familiarize themselves with them and be ready when the update goes live. Enjoy!
Hi everyone! Greg here once again to reveal a brand new feature that’s coming out in our next major update. It’s called Blessing of the Seeker and it will give you an opportunity to earn a permanent boost for each Hero in your collection. The Bonus adds 15% to the extra damage you do to enemies that are weak to a Hero’s elemental attribute. To give you an idea as to how much of a difference that is, if your Hero’s element is Fire then they currently do 30% extra damage to Nature. This will make it 45%.
How do I earn a Blessing?
There is a series of Quests which reward you with Blessings when you collect specific quantities of these new Orbs that we’re introducing in this update.
Orbs have a chance to be loot in the new Challenge Mode dungeons and can also pop out of the Heroic and VIP Portals.
The Quests start with a requirement of 100 Orbs, 250 Orbs, 500 Orbs, and finally 1000 Orbs to complete. The 1000 Orb quest then repeats. Each Quest reward will give you a full Blessing unlock for one of your characters. You can’t stack these, so choose your characters wisely!
As a related new feature – the Quest window is now tabbed. The new tabs are Daily
, and Event
. You can find the Blessing quests in the Event tab.
How do I apply a Blessing?
Once you have completed a quest to earn the Blessing a Hero’s portrait in the character sheet will show you the “Apply Blessing” button.
Simply cycle to the Hero you want to have the Blessing and press the button. In this example, I chose Ignus.
You will then be prompted with a confirmation window.
Now you can see Ignus has the Blessing icon on the portrait.
What exactly does this Blessing do?
All Heroes have an elemental affinity. In my case Ignus is a Fire affinity Hero. He does extra damage to Nature element Heroes. Normally this damage is a 30% boost. With the Blessing this is now increased to 45%.
However, there is one catch! If a Nature enemy has a Blessing then my damage bonus from the Blessing is canceled out. This also works in my favor. Now that Ignus is Blessed any Water enemy that is Blessed will not get that extra 15% damage bonus vs Ignus.
If you tap the Stats page you will also see the damage increase for elemental damage has updated to 45%.
Can PVE enemies have Blessings?
Other players can and will have Blessings in PVP. Yes, PVE enemies can also have Blessings. Most of the later dungeons in the new Challenge Mode feature enemies with Blessings. It is highly suggested that you have your Heroes Blessed before entering those dungeons – you have been warned!
