Update 5.40 Full Highlights!


Hey, guys!

April is in full bloom, and work on Raid: Shadow Legends is in full swing. Update 5.40 is on the way, and we have many sweet features to share with you in today’s Update Highlights.

As we’ve mentioned before, Raid’s 3rd Anniversary had to be postponed, but now we can confirm that it will begin on April 14th and last for a month; expect Events of all kinds, gifts, and a Raid Recap to mark another year of adventuring in Teleria! Another major feature to look forward to is the Forge Pass – we’ll explain it below and talk about the new Artifact Set it will introduce. Finally, there will be another Champion Balance patch and a Fragment Summons.


Forge Pass

The first feature on our itinerary is called Forge Pass. You might think it’s somehow connected to the Battle Pass we once had, and you’d be right – it’s a new take on the old idea! Unlike the Battle Pass though, Forge Pass will focus heavily on what its name suggests: Artifacts, Crafting, and all the things to do with that. You’ll need to be at least Level 40 to participate.

Depending on how you guys enjoy the Forge Pass, we may expand on the concept and launch similar events with different foci in the future.

Forge Pass will be shorter than our Battle Pass was back in the day. It’s just 4 weeks and 50 Levels with a grand total of 500 Points required to complete it. It will include both Daily and Weekly Challenges. Daily Challenges come in fours, and you’ll need to complete them before 9am UTC – which is when they reset. Weekly Challenges will become available on Monday every week while the Forge Pass is active. Everyone can complete them, but only players with a Gold Pass can reap the benefits.

However, both Core and Gold Pass users will enjoy a variety of rewards, such as Crafting Materials, Charms, Chaos Ore that lets you rework the Stats and Substats of Artifacts, Glyphs. Most importantly, the Forge Pass will introduce a brand new Artifact Set – Instinct.

Instinct Artifact Set (4)

+12% SPD, Ignores 15% of enemy DEF

The combination of Speed and the ability to ignore a portion of the target’s DEF is something your nukers are going to love for sure.


3rd Anniversary Celebrations

As part of the 3rd Anniversary, all active players received Raid Recap Videos that show off their greatest achievements in Raid: Shadow Legends this year. The videos include things like your highest Demon Lord Score, the number of times you’ve hit the most difficult Dungeons, and so on.

We’ll also launch multiple Events to honor Raid’s 3rd Anniversary. Be sure to keep an eye on our social media, and don’t forget to check the calendar that we posted there. Finally, we sent gifts for all our players – hurry up to claim them!


Champion Rebalance

We’ve adjusted the format of Champion Rebalance announcements this time. Let us know if you prefer it to what we had before!

    Will this patch include the updated Area rankings for missions?

      I think so. BTW, I’m now in gold IV just by batteling one man defenses, so the “glitch” made everything way easier.

        Please explain this glitch.

          You can’t lose more than 5 arena defense battles in a row. Set a one man defense and you are only gonna be losing 5 defense battles a day.

    Хорошо что хотя бы героев не забывают исправлять.
