Azrael's Buff

Azrael's Evolution

A voice cries out from the Void. It screams "BUFF ME!" We answer, "Oh...Ok." This update sees a substantial buff to the skills of Azrael's Evolution promo pack in addition to a huge blast from the past you probably thought you'd never see again in EpicDuel!



In response to player feedback, we've buffed the damage from the promotional cores to make them worth the sacrifice of precious HP for the boost to damage output. We've also made some adjustments to class skills, including an change that could make Intimidate a much saucier skill for Mercenaries and Blood Mages!

  • AOE Skills and cores multi-hit damage increased to 85%
  • Feast of Flesh: Spend 125 HP to increase top Stat 20%, Crit %, and Rage
    • Boosts Rage 50% on initial use
  • Blood Bullets: Spend 80 HP for 135% sidearm damage
  • Mercenary and Blood Mage:
    • Intimidate: In addition to debuffing strength, it debuffs Rage gain % by the same value
  • Cyber Hunter:
    • Static Charge returned to 100% damage



Step into the Afterlife with a partner and challenge the Legendary Void King for the battle of your life (or unlife)!

  • 2v1 Boss Legendary Void King

    • Disables Defense and Resistance from Armor
    • Additional -15% Defense and Resistance to user

As a blast from the past, the Health and Energy Packs and Boosters have returned to Vendbots and Valestra! The Health Packs and Boosters are affected by Heal modifiers like Critical Heal and the Medical Mastery Legendary Skill.

Legendary Artist Challenge

It's a legendary artist fight, but this one won't be fought with pencils or pens.Throw down with LegendaryBido and Legendary Deuce, then take a spin on the new Heartbreaker Hoard Arcade machine!



  • Cyber Hunter
    • Static Charge: 80% damage on strike


War Balance

Earlier today, the Dread War went live, but something was wrong with the damage output. It turns out, the defenders had a damage bonus that was tilting the war in favor of the defenders. This has been corrected and a few effective war rallies could bring the deficit between the Legion and Exiles.


New Arcade!

Have an inventory packed full of Arcade Tokens? Check out the new Heartbreaker Hoard Arcade machine with some unique variations on classic Heartbreaker and Azrael gear in addition to some decorations to help you get in the holiday spirit! Will you be the first to max out the achievement? 


New Legendary Challenges!

Welcome Bido and Deuce back to Delta V by  challenging their new legendary forms to battle! Nothing says, "Welcome back!" like a bazooka to the face! 


Coming Soon!
