This feature has been extremely well-received and we're simply floored by the generosity of our players! We"ve also been impressed by the use of social media to distribute and schedule gifting times.

...for rating points! This burger bad increases in awesomeness and caloric value as you deposit Credits into it. It also increases your rating points! We're going to need new stars. Or skulls? Something cool. We're also boosting many Legacy achievements' rating point values as a small token of gratitude for those who've supported us for years. We never could have build EpicDuel into what it is today without you!
Beary Cool Mutations
That was the best bear pun I could come up with. There's nothing really funny about an apex predator clad in futuristic battle armor. Terrorize Frysteland with this new Revontheus-crafted Polar Bear mutation available at Torgan in Frysteland. He's also packing all the latest and greatest seasonal loot so be sure to pay him a visit if you're around. He get's pretty lonely talking to his pet Blood Hawk all day. Maybe bring him a cup of hot cocoa. Make that 2. His bird gets thirsty, too.
Rabble and the balance team have introduced some new changes to EpicDuel's balance. Check out a full list of changes in Rabble's extensive patch notes.

Frozen Fury MMO Mega Event
The Biological Preserve Has Fallen!
The Legion forces managed to claim another victory, this time in the Biological Preserve! Can the Legion keep this winning streak going into the next region (yet to be determined).
The Corrupted Tree is cleansed and the Legion have already staked a claim. What will they be able to accomplish with the Corruption Spores in their possession?
Be sure to claim your War Prize: The Armor Hazard Husk! The claim button won't available as long as it normally is due to the upcoming Winter event!
It doesn't make my butt look big does it? It's the chitinous shell, isn't it?
Since the war is over (for now), and there's no scheduled release this week, we're rewarding everyone with a well-deserved weekend of double experience and credits!
You'd better stock up, because you'll need all you can get for the upcoming Frozen Fury event, with the kind challenges and rewards scarcely scene in a browser MMO!
Welcome to Frysteland yet again...or should I say *yeti* agai...I'll show myself out...
Just kidding! It'll take more than a lame pun to get rid of me!
Back on point, Alydriah is up to something in the frozen northlands of Delta V again, but this time it involves invoking the otherworldly power of the Krampus avatar of the Void, The Endless. Edgar Boothe wants to believe there is still good in Alydriah's metallic heart, but he won't hesitate to oppose her if she threatens the life of his beloved people. In his mind, the Legion can bring advanced technology and improve the quality of life of the Krampus, but Alydriah's mind is set on conquest and revenge!
Starting December 5th, we will launch the first part of a 3-part saga as Legion and Exile forces question their allegiances and old grudges resurface. Will Edgar betray Alydriah? Will Alydriah gain control of the Krampus and exert her will over all of Delta V? Prepare yourself for Frozen Fury!
Weapons of War
We're super-excited to offer this preview of the Frozen Fury promotional packages (yes, packages)! This first image is a preview of the mutating weapons, scythes, sidearms, bazookas, and bots that will be available to purchase very soon!
These treasures from the frozen northlands were designed by the super talented guest-artist SarpDV!
Speaking of guest-artists...we've recently welcomed a new addition to the team: SlayerTheKraken!
Be sure to give all of our artists and writers a follow on Twitter --They'll be sharing updates throughout development as Frozen Fury progresses!
Scores of Cores
It has been said that we don't release cores often enough; we'll usually offer a couple in with a new promotional package, but not as many as we'd like to. With this release, we're pushing the limits of our creativity and EpicDuel's game engine to realize the potential of Omega by offering a smorgasbord of cores!
You might say it's a CORE-gasbord.
Stay tuned to these designed notes and our Twitter pages for updates on core progress and functionality. I'd love to share the specific details of the cores, but those may change in testing. At the moment we have:
Endless Avatar: Become the Endless to smite your foes with a blow from your mighty scythe!
Icy Overkill: Charge sidearm with so much energy it deals extreme damage but explodes in the process.
Yeti Blood: When in critical condition, become a fierce Yeti Hulk to bash your foe and steal HP.
Hair Trigger: Auxiliary core that allows you to spend Rage for more damage.
Absorption: Gain energy from bot damage.
Whiteout: Bury your opponent in snow and ice their skills! We hope you have a good memory.
Spirit Thorns: Surround yourself with ethereal spikes that damage attacker's energy pool.
Ice Shield: Shield cast by bot that guarantees blocks and deflections for a limited time.
Again, these cores are still being tested and functionality could change any time between now and their official release.
27 Days of Presents!
Starting December 5th, in addition to launching the Frozen Fury story, we'll be offering a compelling reason to login every day:
Every day, we'll offer a new prize! Just click the button to claim it! Simple! The prizes will change every day; they could be home items, credits, Arcade tokens, weapons, or ??? The prize tracking is unique to each player so you won't be penalized for missing a day, but why would you want to! Plus, you'll receive an evolving achievement for claiming prizes; the more prizes you claim, the better it gets!
New missions, NPCs, arcades, weapons, bots, prizes, cores...what more could you ask for? WHAT?! You still want MORE?! OK, THEN!
How About More Prizes?!
Dust off those trees, snowmen, and pink flamingos, and get ready for a new EpicDuel home decoration contest! It's been awhile since we hosted a contest, and we're excited to be hosting another, especially during this massive Winter event! Excitement!
We're still ironing out the details so stay tuned for more details on the contest next week! Remember that the new Frysteland Yurt is already in game so you can start planning your entries over the weekend!
Unlocks Dragon Buster Armor at Heromart!
A brand-new year approaches, and that means a brand-new Calendar has arrived at HeroMart. Last year we created a “poster calendar hybrid” featuring a battle scene of Artix vs the Undead, but this year we’ve returned to the classic “flip calendar” model to showcase even more breathtaking art. In addition to providing A LOT more writing room for each day of the month, every page depicts a different Dragon type, ranging from Slime Dragons to Faerie Dragons to even the 3-Headed Trigoras Dragon.
This awesome calendar is the product of a colaboration of some of Artix Entertainment's finest artists - Thyton, Dage, and Oishii! In addition to unlocking the fearsome Dragon Buster Armor in EpicDuel, this incredible time-tracker will release loads of content in our other games!
Includes Exclusive AQWorlds Class + 6 In-Game Items!
The only thing more dangerous than a DragonKnight is a Time traveling DragonKnight!
Chrono DragonKnight helm, Cape, Sword, Pet
“Real Life Paladin Armor”
Bonus In-Game Items for Other Games
Dragon Scale (Transform into Mecha January 2015)
Avatar of Time (Class unlocks January 2015)

Frozen Fury MMO Event Preview
The War for the Biological Preserve is well underway and it's still too close to call. The Exiles have a slight lead, having already taken out a Legion Purifier. Remember, with scores as close as they are now, every player can make a difference! Everyone receives war drops just for participating in PvP battles so be sure to use them well!
Artix Anniversary Event Wrapup!
Monday, November 17th we will be removing the Coffee Crusader mission chain PERMANENTLY. This means that the Omni Knight Blade and Titan's Mug will be rare, much like the anniversary weapons and achievements that came before. If you still haven't completed the Coffee Crusader mission chain, there's still time! Those who already have Titan's Mug can take their time redeeming the Mug for the rare achievement in Caffeine Crash mission chain.
If you wish to refresh your memory about the Artix 12th Anniversary Event, you can read more about the Anniversary Event here!
New Home for the Holidays!
Nestled in the Frysteland Wilderness, these Frysteland Yurts will be available on Monday through a small update.
This modest home will be the basis for an upcoming contest. More details about that will be unveiled at a later time.
The cold winds of Frysteland are chilling all of Delta V, and that can only mean one thing...an EPIC Winter Event! We're already hard at work to make this upcoming event one to remember!
For years, Frysteland has been the focus of Legion and Exile conflict, with the region's control in flux over the years. Alydriah has never forgiven Legion Commander Edgar Boothe for his lack of devotion to her ideals of discipline (i.e. refusing to order public executions for littering). Boothe may feel a soft spot for his native Krampus people, but he believes firmly that the benefits of Legion order and technological progress can enhance their lives immesurably. Alydriah won't let this perceived mercy go unpunished, but the ever-watchful Endless has stayed her cybernetic hand...until now.
Insane treasures await you in the coming months as EpicDuel prepares for its biggest event in ages! Prepare for Frozen Fury!
