Roman's Infernal Aftermath
Did you complete Roman's Infernal Pursuit missions? Congratulations! Unfortunately, as of this update, these missions will be rare. However, the Mysterious Man boss can now be challenged by all for one more week!
Cores Inventory Changes
Because having the right core on the right piece of gear can be the different between a narrow defeat and victory, as of this update, no more cores should be limited quantity and will be in-stock all year long.
The old credit cap of 300 has been lifted on battle victories. Also, to encourage the 2v2 battle mode, the 2v2 multiplier on rewards has been greatly increased!
Daily Mission Improvements
Another method for earning quick credits has been completing missions. For the longest time, our daily missions were limited to 1 or 2 per day. This cap has been increased along with the reward amounts for completing these daily challenges. This opens up a great opportunity to add fresh daily missions to keep the available daily activities interesting and profitable!
If you viewed any of the All-time leaderboards, you're probably used to seeing the same faces for as long as you've been playing. Though the achievements of these EpicDuel legends are commendable, it can be discouraging for currently active players to see records that could take years to break. To address this issue, we'll be culling many of the All-time leaderboards based on the latest active date. Anyone who hasn't logged in since 2019 will be culled from the boards. If the called players want to see their names restored, all they need to do is log in!
Item Fixes and Adjustments
Infernal Surge, an armor core, was incorrectly available on primary weapons. Because of this, several players have this core equipped on their primary weapons. To fix this, we're removing the cores from the affected weapons and reinserting them into the inventory.
Also, the Infernal Frostbane and Barrens Battlegear P were missing their base weapon damage. This will be fixed as of this update.
