Infernal War Plus
The Mines of Madness Return!
After years of lying dormant, the Infernal Mines are back in contention! During their occupation after a hard-fought victory, Lawman and his Exile army have guarded the mysterious Android Army. Unable to awaken them, the defended forces remain vulnerable to attack. Now, the Legion have finally mustered enough forces in the region to strike back and reclaim Baelius' greatest and most terrifying creation!
This time around, there is no Vault Door to impede your progress, but the attackers will need to be sneakier to infiltrate the innermost Vault chamber.
Attackers will use Infernal Drills engineered by Mechachillids who were persuaded to help the Legion with the promise of crunchy rocks and metal the ability to continue living.
These drills can bore directly into the Vault, allowing attackers to zap Infernal Beacons directly to the Infernal Controller.
As usual, participants in the war will have the option to buy War items from the Infernal Ammo Depot located near the Infernal Mines entrance.
These are limited quantity, so stock up while you can! Mechachillids are hungry for some Baelius hologram face!
"Don't you DARE eat my face!" -Baelius
Leaderboards will be located near the War Memorial, a reminder of the Exile army's epic triumph, and a painful reminder to the Legion to never underestimate the Exiles.
Will the Exiles hold the Infernal Mines? Will the Legion reclaim their Android Army? Do you have what it takes to be a War Hero?
For the first time, players will be able to earn regional influence in the Infernal Mines!
Who will be the first to attain the highest rank? Will it be YOU? *points*
War Stories and Cleanup!
Visit Naomi and Raymus to accept 2 new mission chains created by Guest Writers Trans and One Winged Angel!
These missions will help fill in the backstories to these two mysterious and tragic NPCs. Plus, you'll get some loot in the process! Getting paid to learn? What a deal!

Titan's Triumph Arrives!
This Friday, prepare for a boatload of new Titan-themed items including a Titan-themed arcade game. Our volunteer artists worked super hard to deliver a shop packed with weapons, home items, and even a bike made of Titan's favorite food -- BACON!
This arcade game also unlocks a Titan's Triumph VIP achievement. Are you feeling lucky?
Rise to the challenge and battle the not-so-pacifist Naomi and Raymus to claim their achievements!
Even Naomi can only be pushed so far.
Some have asked why give achievements to these particular NPCs and not ALL the NPCs you can fight? Good question! I suppose as soon as we draw achievements for the other unique NPCs, we can fill out the ranks of the challengeable NPCs. This would give opportunities to earn these "boss" achievements to players in all level ranges!
As a new feature on Artix.com, you'll have the ability to ask the Developers any question you like (within reason). You voted for the first Dev to be interviewed, and it was our very own Titan!
You've posed your questions, now wait for the answers that should be posted on Thursday (or as soon as Titan finishes his answers). Stay tuned to have the great mysteries of EpicDuel and the Universe revealed!

Titan's Triumph Preview
Prepare yourselves! There's a rumbling at the top of Titan's mountaintop home in Frysteland and it can only mean one thing: Titan HUNGERS!
It could also mean that it's about time for Titan's Birthday celebration! Join us in celebrating the birth of EpicDuel's creator and ever-hungry demi-god Titan with new weapons, vehicles, home items, and a brand new Arcade game Titan's Triumph!
Check out these preview images of the latest and greatest Titan gear coming to Delta V next week! Our volunteer artists have been operating at peak performance to craft epic gifts for EpicDuel's epic creator!
Many of these items will be available form the new Arcade game, but they will also be available for sale in-game on Titan's seasonal birthday shop along with previous Titan-themed rares:
Beyond Titan Preview
We'd like to formally welcome Vorzathiel (formerly ..Trizzzcentrino..) to the EpicDuel Artist team! He's already hard at work creating new content and working on an update to the West Naval Yard!
It's never too early to talk like a pirate!
Or dress like one!

Patch Notes - 1.6.20
July 16, 2014
Last week you took a stand against Lionhart and, though we posed a great challenge, you were able to defeat him. To date, little over 300 duelists have earned the Kingslayer achievement. We designed Lionhart to be the toughest boss yet, but it looks like the best of the best rose to the occasion! Congratulations on this epic achievement!
Thanks to the events of the final mission, the mission chain will be repeatable for the forseeable future for those who aren't quite powerful enough to take on the king.
This week, as a palette cleanser for the exciting, but challenging Lionhart missions, we're introducing 2 new missions created by guest writer One Winged Angel! Talk to Valestra a Habuki in Fortune City to complete their tasks and claim your rewards!
This week, the Chaos Lords poster goes live in Heromart. Buying this epic poster will earn you the Chaos Dragonslayer Sword P/E in EpicDuel, along with awesome chaotic weapons in other AE games!

Battle Gems PvP Is LIVE!
Like PvP? If you're on epicduel.com, then chances are you do, then you'll love the new PvP update to Battle Gems! Check out Cysero's post on the AQW Design for comprehensive info regarding this exciting new update!
Battle Gems PVP!
BATTLE GEMS PVP IS LIVE!
Actually, it's been live for almost a fullday, but we haven't said much about it because we wanted to make sure there were no terribly bad game killing bugs before we sounded the war horns and drew a lot of attention to it. It was a quiet launch.
Of course there were a few bugs (There are always a few bugs) but noting too serious and we've already got most of those solved and ready to publish to the live versions of the game in the next update today or tomorrow.
As always, if YOU encounter any bugs, they go here: http://www.artix.com/bugs
Just so we're entirely clear, ALL bugs for this or any other AE game go here: http://www.artix.com/bugs
... here: http://www.artix.com/bugs
And now we're moving on.
BATTLE GEMS PVP! What's the deal with that?
Here's the deal.
WAIT, DID YOU SAY "BUY GOLD"?!
I did indeed say that, imaginary player who asks me this stuff! There are three gold packages to pick from but the obvious winner is the 50 MILLION GOLD PACKAGE. That should keep you set for a while and allow you to buy almost all of the PvP rewards (If you have the intestinal fortitude to unlock them).
Plus it comes with in-game bonuses where the other packages only come with gold (which is still nice).
the 50,000,000 GOLD package gives you a GOLD NAME (in Battle Gems PvP) and the MAKE IT RAIN skill will be added to your skill list. It's like a big gold fireball that explodes into a shower of gold coins when it hits the target. Fun? Yeah, fun.
Apple based players can get the game here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/battle-gems-adventurequest/id694721552
Android based players can get the game here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.battleon.aqbattlegems
And, of course, you can always play it on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/games/?fbs=100&app_id=217802018249672

Lionhart Saga Part 3
Prepare for the grand finale of the Lionhart Saga! Join Revontheus and the mysterious mage Caden to smite Lionhart and his army using a terrible weapon from Delta V's past! You'll need all your wits and fighting skill to go head-to-head with the champion and leader of the Lionhart Empire. Prepare for the fight of your life!
Do you have what it takes to kill the king?
A King's Bounty
To satisfy your appetite for Lionhart weapons, our artists have created an arsenal of new Lionhart gear available at the level 35 Lionhart Soldier in the Overlord Facility. This incredible arsenal was created by Bidoof and Assassin Order!
Also, rumor has it that Lionhart can be "persuaded" to part with his scepter. Only a bold few can hope to claim this prize for their own!
World Cup Warriors
To celebrate the largest sporting even in the world, we're introducing new World Cup weapons created by Bidoof!
Show off your World Cup fever with the complete set of 8 weapons available from the Overlord Guard in the Overlord Facility! Be quick, because like the World Cup, these weapons are temporary! However, rather than make you wait another 4 years to claim them, we'll bring them back next year around this time.
