[08.19.2020] August update of Chaos Lords

Lords & ladies!

We’re glad to introduce the Chaos Lords update of 1.15 version. It’s truly a huge update and important event for our small team — it’s the 1 year anniversary of our game!
That’s why you will find cool gifts within the in-game letter about the update. There’s a lot of new features in the game itself: upgrades of 5-star heroes and completely renewed soldiers, brand new epic hero and skins for heroes, a new combat mode, referral for your friends… and that’s not all! Complete details below.
We’ll meet in Tartesia, fellow heroes!

The content of the article:

  • Awakening of Heroes
  • New epic Hero
  • New Skirmish Mode
  • Skins for Heroes
  • Soldiers rebalance
  • Referral system
  • Guild settings
  • Other improvements

Awakening of Heroes

Many of you have long been waiting for the “Awakening” mechanics, which will upgrade your heroes to the new level. The awakened (or Chaotic) hero will become even more powerful and will gain a fiery illumination. In other words, you will definitely notice such a hero first on the battlefield!

How will Awakening work?

  • You can awake a hero who already has 5 stars.
  • After a 5-star upgrade, the soul bar will turn from green to red, which means that you will continue to accumulate hero’s Chaotic Souls.
  • To awake a hero you will need 50 souls. Then you will upgrade a hero in the usual way by clicking on the up arrow, and you will see the animation.
  • After the hero awakes, the new stars will be red gold.
  • After Awakening, you can accumulate further hero souls, but to upgrade to 6+ stars, you will need to exchange basic souls for Chaotic Souls in the Mage Tower.

New epic hero

This anniversary update couldn’t avoid releasing new epic hero! It’s an elf, that happened again 🙂

Fernar is a forest hermit. He was an elf somewhen. But destiny made him a werewolf-warrior, which can never go back to his elvish form… What happened to him? We suggest you discuss his story! Look for the best Fernar’s legend contest, which will be announced on Friday.

His skills:

  • Hot trail — Fernar attacks the enemy with the least amount of health and deals damage to them. Additionally he deals increased damage to targets under the Stun effect. The number of jumps in a row depends on the ability level and increases at levels 10, 20 and 30.
  • Blood calls — When Fernar has 50% health left, he screams and puts a Fear effect on the 5 enemies around him (doesn’t affect the big bosses). The maximum number of targets increases by one at 2-5 ability levels, reaching a maximum of 9 targets.
  • Wild rut — Fernar deals damage to several targets in the selected area (up to 7), primarily to enemies with the lowest health, and also deals increased damage to frightened enemies. Fernar has invulnerability to debuffs at the time of the cast. Each enemy who was killed during the duration of the ability, strengthens Fernar for the next 60 seconds.

The Skirmish Mode

The update will feature a new cool mode, and with it a new building on the base. By the way, the location of objects on the base will be optimized, and access to buildings will become more convenient.
Skirmish is a one-on-one battle exclusively in manual mode (you can’t use the auto battle).
The opponent is selected with an equal chance from your PvP League, the next one, or even the highest League you have ever managed to reach in the Arena.
If you win, you will receive one of the awards shown in the list. And in a Skirmish mode you can fight without wasting energy.
With a 25% chance, you can get into a Mega battle. In the Mega battle you will fight against a perfectly balanced enemy army, and the reward for winning against such army will be tripled!
You can see what the mode window in the screenshot below.

Skins for Heroes

Another interesting innovation is the “Skins” tab in the hero’s window. Skins change the appearance of the hero and give bonuses to characteristics.
While you can buy skins for Dwoggour (Turtle Mage and Pontific) and Giranna (Griffin Knight, Guardian of Sands and Zombie), then we will gradually introduce new ones to the game.

Soldiers rebalance

Soldiers. This is an important part of your army, and the selection of soldiers is just as important a strategic element. Therefore, we are working to improve and strengthen them. Both the characteristics and skills of soldiers will be changed.
Soldiers will become about 3 times (!!!) stronger in characteristics, each every soldier’s rank will open additional features for their skills.

Guild settings

An important change has been implemented to support Guild activity. Now, if the Guild leader is absent for more than 5 days, the leadership is automatically transferred to the next PvP ranked player.

This is a necessary measure so that Guild members can participate in sieges, and the Guild can live. Naturally, when the leader returns, the temporary ruler will be able to transfer the leadership back if desired.

If there is no active member in the Guild instead of the Guild leader, then this Guild will be hidden from the search list.

In addition, you can now change the membership level in the Guild settings, but changing the settings has become a paid service. You need to think before you change anything 😉 And settings are made by a separate button in the Guild Lock window.
