Battle Elf -> Shoggoth's Stash - September 6th, 2018 (9/8/2018 10:11:25)
September 6, 2018
The vast, irradiated oceans of Delta V stir once again with the activity of Captain Shoggoth and his brutal crew of eldritch pirates. Join the party into the West Naval Yard to discover new challenges, new weapons, new achievements, and a boatload of new styles!
This update has so much content that it will need a few more days of development and testing with an expected release of Wednesday. Also, I (Nightwraith) will be traveling to the land of my forefathers (Ohio) later next week for a family event so consolidating both these shortened weeks made more sense than 2 abridged updates.
As of the last update, Mercenaries, especially Tactical Mercenaries are under-performing, to put it mildly. They will receive some improvements to their offensive capabilities and usefulness of buffs.
If you completed the Waves of Wrath storyline, you've already tested your steel against Shoggoth, but how do you think you'll fare against a Legendary version of the corrupted pirate?
Fan-favorite Big Tuna is also receiving a Legendary buff to challenge your skills and patience. You didn't think earning those extra stars would be easy, did you?
If you have some extra Tokens burning a hole in your pocket, the Arcade will see the addition of Shoggoth's Stash which will come stocked with wild and weird weapons, including a new travel form!
Look for a big expansion to Credit and Varium styles for all classes, with a focus on Halloween and nautical themes! I don't know how many yet because they're still being drawn, but I expect at least 10 per class/gender!
As with the other AE games, we'll be extending the 18K Varium promotion through this weekend. For EpicDuel, we're keeping the bonus Varium in until the update goes live on Wednesday. It's never too early to stock up for gifting!
Since this update is still in development, the plan can still change with additional content. In the meantime, remember that there's still an EpicDuel contest going on with plenty of time left to participate!
