Frost Revenant Showcase Live!

December 24, 2022

Frost Revenant Showcase is Live!

After some delays, bug fixing, QoL additions, and final rounds of polish, the Frost Revenant Showcase is finally LIVE! Login today and collect the latest and greatest designs from Acatriel and Bido!

There were still more features planned to improve the Battlepass experience, but those sadly had to be cut for this update to launch before the New Year. We hope you enjoy it!


New PvP Drops

In addition to new Battlepass rewards, we've added new Evolved Frostbane PvP drops courtesy of Deuce! 

  • Evolved Frostbane Blades P
  • Evolved Frostbane Blades E
  • Evolved Frostbane Axe P
  • Evolved Frostbane Axe E
  • Evolved Frostbane Staff P
  • Evolved Frostbane Staff E
  • Evolved Frostbane Blaster P
  • Evolved Frostbane Blaster E
  • Evolved Frostbane Bow P
  • Evolved Frostbane Bow E

We've also re-added cores to the drop tables. Some limited charge cores that dropped during the update that introduced them were erroneously set to be unlimited. These will be manually set to 30 charges after this update. The core drops should now function normally with one known display bug that they still show "Unlimited" despite being the x30 variants in your inventory. Equipping the cores resolve this issue. 


New Missions

After you've battled enough to collect several of the new PvP drops, you can visit Deuce in the abandoned train station in the Mines to take on his new mission "Frosty Evolution", offering significant rewards culminating in new rare rewards!

Holiday Wishes

2022 presented many challenges and triumphs, but we're still here dueling on! Though the lack of Gifting has made this a more low-key month, it's been invaluable for stress reduction and creative recuperation. We have no shortage of interesting ideas and projects to build upon our progress from 2022 to carry EpicDuel into the future. On behalf of the EpicDuel team, we wish you a happy and safe holiday season, and a prosperous 2023! Thank you, and duel on!

EpicDuelsgiving 2022

November 23, 2022

A balance bounty

A bounty of balance changes await on the even of an epic holiday weekend! Savor all the changes between bites of turkey, ham, tofu, broccoli, or whatever food you favor as you give thanks for this long-awaited update!


Class Balance

All classes have received some major changes this update. Ultimately, our goal is that each class should have multiple viable builds, and these changes should provide more viable builds while reinforcing the unique identity of each class. Special thanks to those who responded to our feedback survey, who provided thorough documentation for all proposed changes. We are much more likely to implement an idea that's specific (not just "nerf/buff X skill") and well-justified.


Epic Legendary Supporter

Although there will be no Gifting event this year, we are still offering the 40K Varium package for those who wish to stock up. This package also comes with the Epic Legendary Supporter 2022 achievement. This offer will only be available until December 1st, 2022!

The other 10K Artix Point packages will also include the evolving Epic Supporter 2022 achievements. If you purchased a 10K AP package since Friday November 18th, 2022, you will receive this achievement retroactively. Please note the Varium offered by the other 10K AP packages have not been increased this year.

We've also added a 2022 World Cup achievement if you still needed a few more rating points to your next star!


Battlepass Encore

Some of you have been extremely diligent in completing your daily and weekly Battlepass challenges, reaching the coveted level 50 milestone. To make completing challenges worthwhile after hitting the cap, we've expanded the pass to include 10 more levels with substantial Varium and Credit rewards! This Battlepass will officially end at the end of the day on December 4th. In the future, we expect passes to last about 30 days, but due to some early hiccups, we're letting this season run a bit longer.


Battlepass Online!

October 28, 2022

Battlepass Online!

Battlepass Online!

We're commemorating AE's 20th anniversary with the biggest feature we've added to EpicDuel in years: Battlepass! This feature will allow all players to earn new weapons, items, styles, cores, and currency just by completing specific daily and weekly challenges! 

To start, simply make progress towards any of the challenges available. You will being to earn XP automatically as you complete the various tasks. If you're stuck by a challenge or two, you can wait for them to reset or purchase a level worth of XP to advance and claim more prizes. Also, an Enhanced Battlepass is available to unlock even more prizes if you desire.

This season is designed to last until December, enough time for those who complete challenges every day to have a chance to claim up to level 50. Spider designed this system cleverly enough that we have tremendous flexibility to add content and expand challenges as the feature evolves. We hope you enjoy what is the first iteration of a powerful and exciting new feature!

Special thanks to Spider, Acatriel, and our Testers who helped see this feature from inception to final delivery!


O.M.G. Mode

As a surprise bonus addition to this release, we've introduced a new battle mode: O.M.G.

According to our programmer Spider, this acronym stands for Offensive Magnitude of Gorgonzola (because you're cheesing your opponent). Don't let the punny name fool you -- this mode is brutal! This mode makes the following adjustments to regular battle:

  • HP multiplier of x1337
  • DMG multiplier of x750
  • Maximum cooldown of 1 for every ability
  • Unlimited energy
  • Flat +25% stun resist
  • Legendary Points disabled

To maintain its novelty, this mode will only be available for a limited time so experiment while you can!
