Week 24th Feb to 1st Mar 2016
24th February – Alliance City Wall Traps released
Alliance city combat has been hinted at for a long time, and this is the first real progress towards it released live. There are four different types of traps, and they require Trapmaster Tomes to research, which can be found in gold packs or in the Alliance Store. Trap capacity in the Alliance City seems to be quite large, so the traps may play a greater role than in normal stronghold versus stronghold.
24th February – Donate All Resources Button for Alliance City Added
This is a somewhat practical addition that functions similar to the “Use All Resources” ability unlocked in the higher VIP Prestige levels. Main difference of course, is that you don’t get to keep the resources you wanted to avoid clicking out. But if you utilize an alliance bank, this could be a rather useful addition if you dump resources on a very regular basis anyway.
24th February – More Wonder Dungeon Abilities Released
The ability to research several new abilities have been added to the Explorer Dungeon. These include Wind Barrier, which reduces the damage from incoming monster attacks and boosts your own wind attacks, Piercing Shot, which deals wind damage and reduces the armor attribute of monsters, and Flurry, which temporarily increases your attack speed.
25th February – More Building Plots Unlocked
Another urban plot and two more rural plots have been unlocked,
25th February – Additional Research on the Hero Research Tree Released
The World Boss Mastery research has been unlocked, along with the Level 9 researches leading up to it in the Hero research Tree. They are somewhat expensive, and take a good bit of time. You can see more details about the new Hero Research here.
25th February – Monster Dungeons Released
When one of the new World Bosses is killed, they leave a Monster Dungeon that can be entered using a special World Boss Dungeon Key instead of a gold tile or a resource tile. I have not seen anyone kill a World Boss yet, so if your kingdom has and can share some details in the comments, please do.
26th February – New Monster Released – Water Dragon
A new monster, called the Water Dragon has been released, along with some permanent gear that can be crafted in the Forge, as well as the usual new cores and pieces. The materials, cores, and pieces can be obtained through hitting/killing Water Dragons, by gathering from the Water Dragon’s Puddle they leave behind once killed, or in specially marked gold packs.
27th February – New Kingdom Announced
MZ announced the creation of a new kingdom, called Tyva. It will be Kingdom #829.
27th February – Monster Avatar Chests Released
Unique monster avatar chests (which contain monster avatars) are available in specially marked gold packs.
27th February – Bazaar Copper Limit Boost Available
A 30 day +100% Copper Limit Boost is available in specially marked gold packs. This will allow the Bazaar merchant to refresh to 300,000 Copper instead of the normal 150,000 Copper.
28th February – New Gems Available
The Leap Year gem and Leap Year Special gem are now available in specially marked gold packs. They are quite powerful, with 35% Enemy Troop Defense Debuff and 35% Troop Attack Bonus respectively. Check out more details here.
28th February – VIP Prestige Level 18 Released
VIP 18 has been released, and it adds additional features beyond VIP 17. It includes free hero resurrection, autocomplete VIP quests, additional combat boosts/enemy debuffs on top of VIP 17 combat boosts/enemy debuffs, and additional quests. The VIP page has been updated to include the new data.
28th February – Special Hourly Athena’s Gifts
Special Athena’s gifts will be appearing hourly on February 29th in celebration of the Leap Year.
29th February – Kill Coliseum Announced
The Kill Coliseum was announced and set to begin 29th February at 6:00 PM PST/1st March 02:00 UTC, and will last approximately 22 hours. As with previous coliseum events, there will be other coliseums that have different focus. This round offers a training coliseum, a research and build coliseum, and a monster and gathering coliseum. Epic Teleports have not been offered for free or in Athena’s gifts in quite some time, so expect to have to purchase a gold pack to attend unless you still have some Epic Teleports saved.
29th February – “New” Monster Released – Calydonian Boar
A past monster is spawning again, but this time as the World Boss.
If you have something noteworthy that happened in your kingdom this week please document it / screenshot it and send it through to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll try to get it added into next week’s update.
