Raid: Shadow Legends – Patch 8.20.0 Notes

Patch 8.20.0 recently went live in RAID: Shadow Legends, in this post we are going to break down the full patch notes and detail what changes have come into the game in the past few days.

As with all major patches, a whole host of new Champions entered the game, including a new Fusion for Valentine’s Day.

Patch 8.20.0 Notes:

With update 8.20.0, we are adding a new type of skill and the opportunity to exchange unused Champion Fragments for useful resources. We are also making Super Raids permanent, as well as implementing some other improvements and fixes. You can check the full breakdown of these changes in this piece of news.

But that’s not all – we are also rebalancing Blessings and increasing your chances of summoning Perfect Souls for specific Champions on your Wishlist. We’ll post a separate piece of news about these changes, so keep an eye out for that!

Faction Unity Skills:

Faction Unity skills are a brand-new type of skill that have their power enhanced when a player has multiple Champions from the same Faction on their team. The more allies from the same Faction, the more powerful a Faction Unity skill becomes. Champions who have Faction Unity skills will also have enhanced Aura skills that increase two stats rather than one.

Champions with Faction Unity skills are important figures from Teleria’s past and present, related to each Faction. As these Champions are particularly special, they won’t normally be summonable from Shards and will only be available from select in-game events. Keep an eye on the News to find out how and when you can get them, and don’t miss out on getting the first Champion with Faction Unity skills – Acelin the Stalwart!

Exchanging Champion Fragments:

Over the years, you might have accumulated hundreds of Champion Fragments with no way to use them. Well, now you can – introducing Fragment Exchange!

You can now swap your unused Champion Fragments for Exchange Points if you are unable to earn more Fragments for that specific Champion. You can then spend your Exchange Points on Fragment Exchange Chests. Each Chest may contain useful items that will help you progress, as well as Fragments of a unique Legendary Champion from the Sacred Order, Highmother Maud. Head to the Fragment Summon tab in the Portal to find out the details.

Increased Chances to summon Wishlisted Perfect Souls:

We’re increasing the chances of you summoning Perfect Souls for Champions on your Wishlist from x2 to x8. We’ve also increased the odds of summoning Souls for Legendary Champions from each type of Soulstone, as well as the odds of summoning 6* Souls. You can view the new odds in the Default Summoning Chances window of the Soulstone Summon tab of the Altar of Souls.

Massive Blessing Rebalance:

As well as a bunch of other changes to RAID, Patch 8.20.0 brought a significant change to Blessings, how some of them work, and what stats you get from all blessings – check out our post below to find a detailed breakdown for each of the changes that were made to the blessings.

This is also paired with a FREE RESET for all your Champions blessings, allowing you to change them without a cost.

Live Arena Adjustments:

Players in Gold I and Gold II will now lose 3 Live Arena Points per battle loss instead of 4. We’ve also shortened the maximum battle duration from 30 to 20 minutes.

Permanent Super Raids:

Super Raids will now be permanently available in the Doom Tower, Faction Wars, Gear Dungeons, and Gear Ascension Dungeons. Also, if you activate Super Raids during a CvC Tournament, the CvC Points you receive will be doubled.

Clan Insignia Improvements:

We have introduced several improvements related to Clan Insignia:

  • The correct information about the opponent’s Clan (including the correct Clan Insignia) will now be displayed after finding an opponent in Live Arena.
  • Clan Insignia will now be displayed in the Classic Arena, Tag Team Arena, and Live Arena battle result windows.
  • We have also added the Clan Insignia creation rules to the Clan Insignia guide.
