New Champion: Caspian, The Thief of Hearts (and Treasure)

There are few still alive with the skill… the alluring performance — nay! the enrapturing, dazzling SPECTACLE that is what sights behold you when witnessing this dashing rogue’s deadly skills and quicksilver tongue in action. Blessed with arcane weapons and years of streetwise knowledge and training, he takes what he wants and gives some of it away – if he likes you, of course. 

Recently finding himself in possession of an abyssal artifact most would deem too dangerous to handle (Hey, it was just lying around!), Caspian, Thief of Hearts (and Treasure) will have his work cut out for him to survive what comes next. 

The pursuit of hedonistic perfection is a dangerous occupation, but when has that ever stopped anyone?

General Updates

Daily Quest Improvements

Secret internal data suggests that many players never do quests or get the rewards, so we’ve made some changes to the system to both better surface Quests, and also made some changes to how it works.

  • 3 Quests that are randomly Easy or Hard will now instead be
    • 3 Easy Quests Per Day
    • 2 Hard Quests Day
    • A Bonus reward for completing Quests in streaks of 1, 2, or 3 weeks

This will increase the max daily rewards.

Current rewards:

  • 300,000 XP
  • 1,500 Gold
  • 180 Bounty Coins

New Rewards:

  • 375,030 XP
  • 1,965 Gold
  • 225 Bounty Coins

Schism 3 – Siege of Ascension Peak

We’ve long heard community requests to bring back some game modes out of Paladin’s history. Looks like Atlas managed to conjure this one out of the ether, so in lieu of a 3rd Siege: Beyond variant, we hope you’ll enjoy this blast from the past!

  • Join the fight and turn the tide of battle in favor of the Paladins, or defeat Jenos on behalf of House Aico. Players will be assigned to represent either the Paladins or the Magistrate. Your mastery of each Champion will see you through to victory! Be Careful! Magistrate forces have Ascension Peak under constant fire. Dodge the explosives crashing down all around you. The ascendance of Jenos has affected the battlefield. All Champions have 15% Cooldown Reduction–can you handle your newfound power?

Ranked Split Updates

Split Rewards

Ranked Map Rotation

  •  For this ranked rotation, we will be removing Fish Market, Ice Mines, and Timber Mill, and bringing back the new Warder’s Gate rework.
