It is time! The latest patch is rapidly approaching with the expected launch date to be Thursday this week, alongside the new Fusion which you can check out here.

New Faction: Sylvan Watchers

You heard right, the “Wood Elves” have finally arrived, we’ve got a full breakdown of this new Faction in a separate article which you can check out here.

New Buff: Taunt

As some of you may have noticed in game, the Taunting set is no longer called taunting, thanks to this new buff it has been renamed “Provoking” which makes complete sense.

But what is Taunt?

While a Champion is under a Taunt Buff, enemies can ONLY target that Champion. If there are several Champions under a Taunt buff on the same team, enemies can target any of the Taunting Champions.

When using an AOE Attack, only the Champion under the Taunt buff can be targeted but the allies will still be hit by the AOE damage as normal.

The Taunt Debuff does not have priority over Provoke Debuffs, and as such provoked enemies will continue to hit their provoker, regardless of active Taunt Buffs.

The Taunt buff cannot be spread, and it’s duration cannot be increased – It can however, be stolen, removed and have its duration decreased.

New Artifact Set – Defiant!

The upcoming Forge Pass set has been announced! Defiant

Defiant is an improved version of the existing set, Stalwart, but instead of being a 4pc Set, it is a 2pc Set, Meaning you can in theory run it alongside Stalwart too for additional effect!

+10% DEF & -15% Damage Taken from enemy AoE Attacks for every 2 artifacts equipped.

Artifact Set Rebalance: Instinct

This Set now ignores 20% of enemy DEF, instead of 15%.

Halloween Fusion:

As we all know, on Thursday there will be a new Fusion Event for Morrigaine, a speed freak from the Undead Hordes Faction (what a shocker!)

We have a detailed post here where you can read all about our thoughts and Plariums announcement of Morrigaine, but below you can see her skill kit.

Lady Anabelle will be able to solo Bommal.

So taunting is similar to what duchess and tatura do, bottlenecks solo hitters. Should be interesting in dt hard waves

Is that a typo? The way it reads it will remove debuffs from the enemy… It should either remove buffs from enemy or remove debuffs from allies.

It’s a typo.
