Free Hero LoadoutEdit
Want to really put that free Hero to the test? Well now you can do even more with a free Hero. Heroes that are currently in the free rotation can now equip any available Masteries that are usable by that Hero.
- Free Heroes can now slot any available Masteries in inventory that are usable by that Hero.
- Once a Hero is no longer in the free rotation, any slotted Masteries can be removed from that Hero to reuse in other Heroes or left there until they are free again or purchased. They cannot be reslotted again if the Hero is not currently free.
- Note: If you leave Masteries slotted on a Hero after it is no longer on the free rotation, those Masteries will not affect the Hero if you choose to rent them via the new Hero Rental feature.
- Note: Free Heroes are still unable to learn any Masteries on their own Mastery Tree until the Hero has been purchased.
Health Potions are now available in bundles from the store, individually or in bulk packs. They can be used in game to restore your health to full. Heroes will still slowly recover health over time once out of combat, but Health Potions will allow you to get back into the fight faster!
- Health Potions are sold on the Store and stack in game.
- The amount of Health Potions available is indicated in the lobby as well as in game.
- Health Potions can only be used when a character is not fighting or being attacked.
- Health Potions can only be used if the character is injured.
- Using a Health Potion will restore a character instantly to full health.
- Health Potions will be grayed out on the in game UI if they are not usable at the moment. They will glow green when they are usable.
- To use a Health Potion, if you are out of combat, just click on the UI section for Health Potions or hit the ‘P’ button.
Want to try playing a Hero to see what they're all about? You may now rent Heroes to try them out before buying them! Renting a Hero will allow you to use them for the rest of the current Scenario, for just a small Gold cost.
- Heroes that are not owned or part of the current free rotation will be available for rental, with the exception of the newest Hero.
- New Heroes will be available for rental when the next new Hero becomes available.
- Clicking the Rent button will present the cost for the rental and a confirmation box. The cost for renting a hero is in Gold and will be deducted immediately.
- Once rented, a Hero is available for the entire Scenario and can be chosen any time you respawn.
- After a Scenario has ended, any Heroes rented will expire and need to be rented again for future Scenarios.
Mastery Tree RelearningEdit
Sold your Magmastorm for Experience and now want it back without waiting for it to pop up randomly in a chest? Now there’s a way to get it back. Heroes will now be able to relearn Masteries available in their Mastery Tree again once they have completely learned the Mastery Tree.
- Once a Hero’s Mastery Tree has been completely learned, you will have the option to Relearn the Mastery Tree and make all of the Masteries available again for purchase.
- Relearning your Mastery Tree will cost 10 Mastery Points to open the tree again for purchase.
- Note that using this feature will not affect any of the Masteries you previously purchased for Mastery Points; it just allows you to purchase additional copies of the Masteries in that tree or regain a Mastery that was sold for Experience previously.
New Hero: OlwynEdit
Olwyn has arrived! She is a powerful Dwarf Ironbreaker who thrives in the midst of battle.
- Olwyn is heavily armored and has the ability to shield herself from damage for a period of time.
- Olwyn has a snare to keep her enemies close, and is completely immune to being knocked back to stay in the fight longer.
- Olwyn’s first ability completely negates her target’s armor for a short time, increasing the ability of her teammates to damage more heavily armored foes.
The following Heroes are considered free and available to all during this week:
- If you get knocked back during a leap, the knockback will now calculate from the current position rather than the origin point of the leap.
- The following Masteries have been reworked:

- Matchmaking will now factor in whether a player is in a Warband or queued solo as part of the search criteria for finding suitable opponents. This means that pre-built groups will be greater than the sum of its parts in consideration for whom they will be matched against. Population and amount of players currently available for games will also factor into the queuing process as they have previously.
