Patch Notes 9/8

Wed Aug 08, 2018 1:02 pm

Previously, on Valiant Force…

Odessa seems to have the upper hand, as she made off with the Awakened Powers of Kiera, dealing a seemingly mortal blow to Lu Bu along the way. Shizu arrives in the Three Kingdoms to lend a helping hand, equipped with some useful new powers!

The team must race against time to save the God of War, while they work to find and stop Odessa before she puts Kiera’s powers to use in the worst possible way.  


New Features
  • New Limited-time event ‘Labour of Love’. The Three Kingdoms Tale continues. 
  • Raid 3 “Path of Liberation” now open! Encounter some very unexpected enemies in this all-new Challenge. 
  • Shizu, Teresa and Drake Awaken! Summon them now with increased rates!
  • Challenge Mission Event Nodes - Are your squads ready for this near-impossible challenge?

Raid 3 Grand Opening
Ready your guild for a new Challenge as the Valiants face off against none other than… themselves. More specifically, the shadows of a future that could be, if they succumb to the allure of power granted by Awakening.

  • Face off against Shizu and Lucille in the Crossing of Desires
  • Guard against Freya and Kiera at the Thoughtless Rest
  • And finally, take on Darrion and Kane in the Chantry of Animus
New Equipment is available at the Raid Merchant. Purchase them for Raid 3 tokens after overcoming these harsh trials! Additionally, Raid 1 and 2 Merchants will also be updated.

Please note that the follow prerequisites must be met in order to participate in the third raid:
  • Complete Master Act 3 
  • Minimum Level Requirement: 70
  • Guild Level 15
  • Fully clear Firestorm Labyrinth (Raid 2) at least once.

New Heroes/Units
  • Diao Chan (Healer)
    • Spirit Walker: A star support player, amplifying the damage taken by all enemies while turning their pain into healing for the team. She might even reduce the cooldowns of her allies! 
    • Witch Doctor: An awesome friend to Mystics, she can greatly boost the MAG of her own teammates, hastening their skill cooldowns while crippling the offensive skills of her opponents, rendering them fangless. 
** Diao Chan Witch Doctor was originally assigned a Charm mechanic as part of her skillset (as teased on Facebook earlier). This has since been removed as it was discovered to consistently cause a critical error in testing. It has been replaced with an effect of equal power.

New Event: “Labours of Love”. Take on the Mega-Bosses guarding the Peach of Immortality!  A brand new ultra-difficult (optional) challenge awaits this event : The Challenge Mission node, available after completing Master 3 difficulty.
