Prepare for the Lowe-Down Throw-Down

This Friday, prepare for one of the biggest EpicDuel events yet!  George Lowe is descending upon Delta V to challenge its best warriors and increase his collection of fallen souls. 

Also, to increase his collection of tiny ceramic kittens.  Hey, it's a hobby.

Join us for this amazing event bursting at the seams with new content!


George Lowe!


Battle George Lowe: Space Warrior!

George Lowe feeds on fear...and it's dinner time!  Meet him in the newly constructed Legion Arena (located just inside Fortune City), and try taking on the fearsome mercenary in his sweet space armor!  Think you've got what it takes?  You'd better bring your fighting pants because George Lowe fights dirty!


...Or Hire Him!

George Lowe is also a registered mercenary for hire.  For a price, he will launch a devastating (and hilarious) attack on the opposing alignment!


New Skills!

New Skills!


The classes are evolving.  For the first time in a loooooong time, we are introducing three new skills!  Will you try them all?  

  • Assimilation: Maintaining a steady flow of energy is essential for a Tech Mage to power his or her powerful spells.  In time of great distress, powerful Tech Mages can strike an opponent and drain their energy, converting a portion of it for their own.  Fully leveled Assimilation can drain up to 10 energy points from an enemy while addition 5 points to your own energy reserve.
  • Shadow Arts: A truly skilled Bounty Hunter's reflexes are so finely honed, that time appears to slow, making incoming attacks easier to avoid.  This skill passively increases block rate, deflection rate, and stun rate by 1% per level of investment.
  • Blood Shield: Using intense concentration and a portion of their own life-force, Mercenaries can now bestow protection from energy attacks on themselves or an ally.  Blood Shield levels the same way as Hybrid Armor, except it eventually dissipates after 4 turns.


Balance Improvements!

  • Field Medic   - new Tech requirement base 15 step 3  
  • Double Strike - new Dex requirement base 13 step 2  
  • Bunker Buster - reduced Dex requirement by 2 per level  
  • Berzerker     - new Dex requirement base 20 step 2  
  • Atom Smasher - increase % by 2% per level  
  • Bludgeon     - new Dex requirement base 15 step 2  
  • Overload - new Tech requirement base 18 step 2  
  • Reflext Boost - increase dex by 2 at all levels  
  • Massacre     - new Supp requirement 20 base step 3  
  • Venom Strike - new Tech requirement 20 base step 2
  • Lowered the Rage impact from 65% defense ignore to 45% defense ignore
  • Underdog players have a much higher chance of First Strike against higher level opponents

New Weapons!

New Holiday Rares!


While you're visiting George Lowe be sure to browse his inventory of devastating, class-specific frost gear.  If you ask nicely, he just might let you have some...for a price!

Coffee-tron 3000, you're my best friend <3
