Patch Notes

The current item drop system doesn't function well as a reward mechanism. It drops many items on players who aren't interested in them (the items are extremely common, or they're for a hero the player doesn't play), and in the process dilutes the value of the items. We'd like to get to a place where dramatically fewer uninteresting items enter the economy. We don't have a complete solution yet, so we're going to move forward step by step, taking feedback from you as we go.

  • Item drops are now entirely time based instead of level based.
    • Drop list now includes full sets, treasures, bundles and Arcana items at a rare rate instead of frequently dropping common items.
  • Battle boosters have been removed from the game entirely (we actually removed them from the store in September).
  • A new treasure, the "Treasure of the Rotted Gallows" has been added to the game.
    • Treasure Redemption Tokens and other items that can be redeemed for treasures can select this new treasure.
    • International 2013 Treasure Keys may now be redeemed for treasures.
    • The items in this treasure can be traded/marketed in 3 months (February 1, 2015).
    • The rare rewards from this treasure are not subject to the trade or marketing restriction.
