Featuring new, powerful weapons, styles, balance tweaks, and boosted PvP rewards, EpicDuel's latest release is now live!
Many years ago we introduced an amazing, rare item to precede the Infernal War. This weapon, the Infernal Slayer, was a limited rare that was never offered again. There are only 630 in circulation out of the players in EpicDuel's history. Keep in mind, this was sold during EpicDuel's peak population so its stock ran out in a matter of days. A new, updated Infernal Slayer 2 is now available at Kraggor in the Mines. This sword comes in Physical and Energy variants, is a limited item, and comes with an Achievement for purchasing either.
The weapon is equipped with 2 unlocked core slots with Massive Strike and Infernal Fury. Much like the original Infernal Slayer released all those years ago, after the quantity is depleted, it will never be restocked again.
To incentivize PvP battles, we've boosted credit and XP rewards for 1v1 and 2v2 automatch battles. All PvP battles have multipliers that govern reward amounts, and the new multipliers are:
NPC battles should be unaffected. Juggernaut rewards were reduced due to the speed of most Juggernaut battles. 2v2 received the largest boost to compensate for the increased time involved in completing 2v2 battles.
This week we're introducing several new major balance changes to Mages and Mercenaries. Also, some changes were made to the battle formulas to mitigate block and deflect, reducing the role of chance in the outcome of battle.
