** SteelSpine’s RECAP for SEPTEMBER 28, 2020 **
Hey, all! I’m sorry for my long absence and for the disappearance of The Recap. My family life has been VERY hectic lately (mostly good, but some bad stuff too), so I just haven’t had the time to dedicate to writing these things each week anymore. Especially since the Devs STILL refuse to do an actual LiveStream - and 3/4 of the Events are just expensive, unnecessary “filler”. At most I log on once every 1-2 days, run a couple of attacks, maybe put up 2k or 4k Souls in an Event.. my heart (and my wallet) just isn’t in it anymore.
I’m going to try to commit to writing a Recap each time a really big development or a big Event takes place in the future, but I’m not 100% sure I’ll be able to deliver. Sorry once again, everybody - but my wife, kids and bills have to come first. Thanks for taking this trip with me over the past couple of years - it’s been awesome. :-)
There was no LiveStream AGAIN this week due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. Our last LiveStream with the Devs was way back on February 27th.
This week’s Event will be called DAWN OF THE DRAGONSLAYERS. It will begin on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1 and run until MONDAY, OCTOBER 5.
This week’s Event features the debut of ZABAVA, the Lightning Infiltrator. ZABAVA is the first in a NEW collection of Titans called “Dragonslayers”. It’s unclear as to whether or not ALL “Dragonslayer” Titans will have similar Skills, but ZABAVA is an Invoker Titan with two abilities we haven’t seen before: She has a Skill that activates inside her “AURA”, and she has the ability to Call (Summon) Corrupted Storm Maidens.
ZABAVA’s “Aura” is a circular area around her. Zabava and up to 6 Storm Maidens inside the circle will gain a boost every 7 seconds (a maximum of ten times).
Corrupted Troops appear to be very similar to Omega Troops - but with different Boosts. For example: Corrupted Storm Maidens have +100% Damage, +100% Health (across all levels), -35 Armor Piercing (15 base Armor Piercing instead of the usual 50), and +10% to +50% All Elemental Resist (depending on their Level, from +10% at L21 to +50% at L25) compared to regular Maidens, whereas Omega Storm Maidens have +80% Damage, +30% Critical, +30% Speed and -20% Range (compared to regular Storm Maidens). (NOTE: Storm Maiden Relics WILL boost Corrupted Maidens - but Omega Storm Maiden Relics will NOT boost Corrupted Maidens).
Slot 1: +200% Titan, Troop Lightning Damage. +70% Titan Base Health. +50% Storm Maiden Base Damage. Every 7 seconds, Call an Enraged Corrupted Storm Maiden and Invoke +50% Titan, Troop, Spell Lightning Damage (Max 5).
Slot 2: +44% Storm Maiden Critical. +88% Titan Armor Piercing (2x on Offense). +88% Storm Maiden Armor Piercing (2x on Offense).
Slot 3: +150% Titan & Troop Armor. +400% All Lightning Spells Damage. On enemy Omega Summon, cast Lightning on the Summoned Troop, and Invoke +75% Titan & Troop Lightning Damage (Max 5).
Slot 4: +44% Titan Critical. +300% Titan Lightning Damage (2x on Offense). +300% Storm Maiden Lightning Damage (2x on Offense).
Slot 5: +250% Titan Health. +40% Titan Melee Resist. +40% Titan Ranged Resist. Every 7 seconds, Zabava’s Aura bestows +50% Titan & Troop Lightning Damage, +50% Armor Piercing and +25% All Elemental Resist to herself and all Storm Maidens within the Aura radius (Max 10). (NOTE: Info on the Official Blog says that this will effect UP TO SIX Storm Maidens inside the Aura).
Prestige Skill (at Level 10): +120% Base Titan Damage. On Titan Critical, +100% chance for Zabava to unleash the Traveling Storm, striking up to 4 enemies within her Aura with a Lightning Bolt (Max 10).
ZABAVA will be available for 22k Souls.
