UPON A CHILL WIND,
THE ELDWURM COMES
The season may be changing, but the cold still has the power to bite. Winter Wyvern has arrived, ready to let you blanket the battlefield in her icy shadow. Take wing to soar over obstacles and sap an enemy's strength from afar, or pierce gathered foes with shards of fragile ice. Or wrap your allies in a frozen cocoon to let them hibernate and heal, while you curse your opponents to turn their weapons on one of their own. With Winter Wyvern on the field, the warmth of spring may never come.
Soar upon an icy gust to fly over obstacles, and strike enemies from afar with attacks that remove a percentage of their health.
Shatter a block of fragile ice on an opponent that launches splinters into nearby enemies.
Encase an ally in a healing cocoon of ice that renders them immune to physical attacks.
Freeze an enemy in place and strike those around them with a curse that causes them to attack their frozen ally.
Some say the garment began as the wedding gown of an ancient queen. Others say it was once a battle cloak of a frost ogre. In truth, the enchanted fabric is as malleable as an avalanche, and can mold itself into various forms. This form has attracted a lone wolf pup, who has now become a hardy and loyal companion.
20% off until March 2nd 2015.
If purchased by March 2nd 2015, you will receive an 'EXALTED' quality on this item.
The chaos of spring has arrived. As snows melt and flowers begin to bloom, the battlefield is bathed in color and life. Lanterns now lead heroes through the forest trails, guiding them beneath the shadow of their dragon towers on their way to fight the war for supremacy. With every hard-earned victory or bitter defeat, fireworks stand ready to celebrate the end of battle.
None can hide from Spectre, and now everyone will know it! If you purchased last summer's Compendium for the International, you'll discover a new item waiting in your armory. Mercurial's Call re-imagines Spectre's voice, granting her an intelligible personality that introduces hundreds of new ways for her to threaten her enemies.
Make your claim on the spoils of war! Several changes have come to the Item drop system. The first change is increasing the drop rate for the existing ultra-rare drop system, which includes Full Sets, Bundles, Treasures, and more. Alongside that drop system, we are adding a new drop system that happens significantly more frequently for single items. Items that drop are not marketable, but can each be gifted one time to a friend.
Additionally, sets from Treasures will now also be giftable in the same way during their initial market/trade restricted date, so if you want to give a friend an item for his favorite hero, you will be able to use the updated gifting system.
It's time for a bit of spring cleaning. Item Recycling is now available to reforge your unwanted items into new opportunities. To recycle an item, open your Armory and select "Item Recycling". Then click and drag the items you'd like to recycle.
Once you have selected 10 items to recycle, select "Submit" to melt your items down and create a Charm of the Crucible Jewel. Use this Charm before the horn of battle to predict your victory.
Correctly predict 3 victories, and you will be rewarded with a Treasure of the Crucible Jewel, which will contain one of several dozen possible hero item sets, and an ultra-rare chance of finding an Arcana item!
Make 2 incorrect predictions and you will receive a handful of Charm Fragments to give you a head start the next time you wish to recycle your items. Prizes earned through the Charm of the Crucible Jewel cannot be traded.
