New Starter Decks
Starter decks for all factions have been significantly upgraded — each contains 4 gold and 6 silver cards for additional tactical possibilities!
New Cards & Animated Versions
Every card now has its own animated version and there’s also a new way to craft them — Meteorite Powder. You can learn more about it here.
Faction Leaders Enter the Battlefield
All faction leaders have brand new abilities. What’s more, every leader is now a playable card which enters the battlefield before their ability is triggered.
Northern Realms Revamp
Northern Realms sport a brand new and exclusive faction ability — Armor. When activated, armor shields friendly units from incoming damage. Additionally, most of the units in Northern Realms have had their abilities reworked to give the faction a brand new feel.
Changes to Weather Effects
Instead of instantly reducing the strength of affected units, weather is now a damage over time effect. Units affected by weather lose points of strength every turn and will be removed from the board if weather is not cleared in time.
