New Gifting Prizes Added:

At long last two additional unique gifting rewards have made their way onto Delta V! Thank you again for your patience during this process, and it was a pleasure realizing your EpicDuel visions.

  • Lore Master's Alpha Demiurge - an angelic armor forged from a realm beyond time and space
  • runeknight's Gamma Bot - a gilded Gamma Bot with weapons fit to battle a kaiju


Bug Fix:

Revitalization (Credit only): armor Defense and Resistance now being removed correctly

 

Last Infernal Call:

Next week the Infernal Slayer 3 missions will leave and become permanently rare (for real)! You have one week to complete the challenge and obtain these unique weapons!

 

Player Appreciation Varium:

With next week's update we will be giving all players who have logged in since January 1, 2020 a bonus 750 Varium to spend as they chose. This should be especially exciting for those who have never been able to afford any Varium and want to see what all the hype is about! You can even take a bite and see what it tastes like! I wouldn't recommend this, however, as Fortune City dental care can be lethal!

Patch Notes - 1.8.21

We just rolled a small update make several limited quantity items sellable. This should be valuable to players without Varium who cannot expand their inventories as well as players with hundreds of items who want to do some Spring cleaning. Remember that the reason for this restriction was to prevent players from buying and selling the entire stock of items to troll other players. As the items are no longer in shops, the restrictions are no longer needed.

The following items are now able to be sold at merchants, freeing up valuable inventory space.

  • Blazing Celtic Hunter CC
  • Mystic Celtic Hunter CC
  • Blazing Celtic Destroyer CC
  • Mystic Celtic Destroyer CC
  • Blazing Celtic Pistol CC
  • Mystic Celtic Pistol CC
  • Blazing Celtic War Bow CC

Credit Core Collection

Credit Core Collection

POWER UP...with Credits?!

For awhile several power cores have dominated PvP. Unfortunately for many, these cores were only available for Varium. We want those who spend money to support EpicDuel to get a good value for their generous contributions, but if the game becomes too tilted in favor of Varium players, it can become a boring, if not hostile, experience for players who love the EpicDuel but cannot buy Varium. Walking this fine line between empowering Varium users without alienating Credit-only players has been a challenge as old as EpicDuel itself.

To help restore a bit of power to Credit-only players, we've made cores that had previously been Varium-only available for Credits. Please note that some of these cores are slightly less powerful than their Varium counterparts so there will still be a distinction for those who choose to purchase Varium. If this feature is popular enough, we can do the same for more Varium-only cores.

Now available at the War Memorial in the Infernal Mines:

  • Om Nom Bomb P x25: Summon a swarm to attack target and absorb 20% Physical damage to HP.
  • Om Nom Bomb E x25: Summon a swarm to attack target and absorb 20% Energy damage to HP.
  • Magma Grenade P x25: Physical grenade that lowers defenses by an increasing amount (0.8 per level) for 4 turns.
  • Magma Grenade E x25: Energy grenade that lowers defenses by an increasing amount (0.8 per level) for 4 turns.
  • Short Circuit Grenade P x25: A grenade that deals 75% Physical damage and puts a random skill into Cooldown.
  • Short Circuit Grenade E x25: A grenade that deals 75% Energy damage and puts a random skill into Cooldown.
  • Crystal Grenade x25: A grenade that reduces the target's energy by 25% of normal strike damage.
  • Stalagrenade P x25: Hardened Physical grenade that ignores 15% Defense with 10% Crit chance.
  • Stalagrenade E x25: Hardened Energy grenade that ignores 15% Defense with 10% Crit chance.
  • Hammer Grenade P x25: 60% Physical damage that removes armor for 2 rounds.
  • Hammer Grenade E x25: 60% Energy damage that removes armor for 2 rounds.

Now available at VendBots across Delta V:

  • Health Reserve x25: Restore health based on your armor’s defense (2.7 points of HP for every point of Defense)
