Welcome Summoners, to the April Patch Notes for Update 1.7.0! It has been a while since we had an update and we are excited to share with you today all the new features coming to the Ascension Realm. The team has been working on new ways for you to play Mythic Heroes, including new rotating events, new ways to battle powerful foes, and power up your Heroes.
For the last 3 weeks, we have also been hosting a Player Test Realm for 300 select members of the community, where they were able to access these features and changes on a test server. Their feedback has been instrumental in ensuring the best possible experience for returning players as well as new players! After the 1.7.0 update, you will be able to recognize these hard-working Summoners by their custom Fenrir Avatar in Mythic Heroes!
With the success of the PTR, it is our intention to host it again in the future for large updates to help with the introduction of new systems and features, so if you are interested in joining our veteran team of testers, make sure you join our Discord and keep an eye out for the next round of invitations in the future!
Now, there is a lot to cover. Let’s get started!
New Game Icon
We’ll start things on a bit of a light note – with the new update, we figured we’d give ourselves a new look. Amaterasu will now be featured on the Mythic Heroes app icon!
We have updated our in-game shop to use a new currency called Novastar Gems.
Novastar Gems will be replacing the currency values displayed on the in-app purchase options. In adding this new purchasable option, we hope to provide players with more flexibility and options when it comes to how purchasable content can be obtained.
Novastar Gem Packs will be available to purchase at the following prices (USD):
First Time Purchase of a Novastar Gem Pack
The first time a player purchases a pack of Novastar Gems, they will receive a one time bonus doubling the base amount of Novastar Gems purchased. This applies to each package once.
All Subsequent Purchases
Every subsequent purchase of a pack of Novastar Gems can provide a bonus value pack. This bonus will apply to all subsequent Novastar Gem pack purchases starting from the second time the pack is purchased.
We hope that these changes will provide additional value to our players who make in-app purchases. This change will not affect users who do not make in-app purchases and Novastar Gems will not replace existing packs that were previously available with Diamonds.
Valhalla is a recurring 2-week long event where Summoners fight against a powerful boss to complete quests, fulfill bounties, and buff your team using new boons. This new event offers players unlimited replayability for you to increase your score and ranking on the leaderboards. Upon completing Valhalla boss challenges and event quests, you may receive Valhalla Coins! Visit the Valhalla Warchest to exchange these coins for a wide variety of rewards.
Valhalla can be entered during active event periods by visiting “Ragnarok” on the campaign menu after completing Chapter 20 – 4.
Bounties are a new Valhalla exclusive mechanic to customize your challenge difficulty. Each bounty applies different modifiers to the battle which can range from enemy buffs, friendly team hindrances, and even adding more opposing units!
Selecting the bounties with more difficult challenges will reward you with more points at the end of a successful fight so make sure to choose wisely!
Upon completing quests within Valhalla, players can earn Leaves from the Infinity Tree! These Leaves can be exchanged for “Boons” which are a set of Valhalla exclusive buffs. Exchange your Leaves for specific hero ability effects, teamwide stat bonuses, and more!
After centuries of refinement and storing energy, these relics have become magical instruments within the world of Mythic Heroes, emanating powerful auras to support you and your heroes.
Antiques unlock after completing stage 10 – 4 in the main campaign. They can be found in the Museum and can be summoned with the new Tomb Exploration feature. They provide you with scaling benefits as you progress through the Ascension Realm. These bonuses include roster-wide benefits, faction or class-specific buffs, and more. Enhancement materials can be acquired all throughout the Ascension Realm including campaign quests, the marketplace, and the new weekly events.
By collecting, awakening, and refining antiques, you can greatly enhance your heroes, making antiques a coveted treasure for all summoners!
Summoners can Appraise their antiques by using Appraisal Scrolls and Antique Fragments. Appraising an antique will increase the item’s Star Grade as well as its maximum restoration level.
By using Restoration Elixirs, you can increase the effectiveness of an antique’s bonus. As an antique’s star grade increases, different elixirs may be required to restore your antique.
Certain antiques will belong to a set and collecting multiple antiques of the same set will provide you with additional attribute effects. Set bonuses have 3 tiers: Collected, Graded, and Awakened. By having discovered each antique in a set, you can achieve the “Collected Set” bonus. In order to achieve the “Graded Set” bonus, all antiques in the set must reach their maximum Star Grade. Lastly, to achieve the “Awakened Set” all antiques in the set must be fully restored at their maximum Star Grade. Each collection tier will provide significant bonus attribute effects, so make sure to collect them all!
Tomb Exploration is where summoners can use Exploration Coins and Tomb Maps to find a wide array of treasures. Possible rewards include:
- Antique Fragments
- Appraisal Scrolls
- Restoration Elixirs
- Museum Coins
Summoners will also receive bonus cumulative rewards as more Tomb Explorations are completed.
New Weekly Events
We will be adding two new rotating weekly events! Both Ascension Hammers and Luminous Pearls can be earned passively whether the event is active or on cooldown so that more rewards can be earned when the events are active. Choose to use them right away when the event is available, or stack and save them for the next time the event comes back – the choice is yours!
Tower of Babel
The Tower of Babel is a new recurring weekly event where players can collaboratively build the Tower of Babel alongside other summoners in their server. As players build the tower, they will earn a wide range of rewards including Faith, Treasure Fragments, and Firmament Coins! Firmament Coins can be exchanged for more prestigious rewards including Astrolabe of Fate Crystals and Heavenly Orbs.
Build floors of the tower by using Ascension Hammers, which can be earned throughout the Ascension Realm, even when the Tower of Babel is not active. That means that you can save your Ascension Hammers to build even more next time the event comes around!
Collect Luminous Pearls throughout the Ascension Realm to start mapping the Zodiacs. As players draw their Zodiacs, a wide range of rewards can be earned including treasure fragments, hero shards, diamonds, and star coins! Star Coins are a new exclusive currency that can be exchanged in the zodiac market for even more rewards, ranging from treasure fragments to a UR custom selector voucher!
Heavenly Gifts is a new idle collection feature that allows players to passively earn rewards and bonuses for both antiques and heroes. Within the Heavenly gifts, summoners will find special Cubes which store energy that can be passively gained or instantly charged by using diamonds. The stored energy can then be converted into Celestial Treasure Fragments to craft Mythic Antiques.
Players can also obtain Privilege Vouchers which can be redeemed for heavenly gifts. These gifts can provide players with additional resources aimed at upgrading antiques or the cubes themselves! By redeeming Privilege Vouchers or earning VIP Points through in-app purchases, summoners will earn “Gift Points” which are used towards unlocking the next Heavenly Gift.
To upgrade the Cubes, summoners must use Heavenly Orbs, a rare currency that can be obtained through weekly events. Upgrading cubes can increase antique draw rates, energy recharge speed, maximum energy storage, and even hero attributes.
New Marketplace – Jade Market
The new Jade Market allows summoners to exchange their excess hero tokens for a selection of highly valuable resources. Excess hero tokens can be exchanged for “Jade Tokens.”
- Exchange excess hero tokens
- Exchange excess SSR hero tokens for Superluster Jades
- 1 Excess SSR Token = 10 Superluster Jades
- Exchange excess UR hero tokens for Ultraluster Jades
- 1 Excess UR Token = 10 Ultraluster Jades
Once you’ve exchanged your excess Hero Tokens for Jade Tokens, you can trade your Jade Tokens for some of the following items!
- Treasure Fragments
- Hero Selection Tokens
- Inherited Divinity
- Restoration Elixirs
All players will have access to the Jade Market after having cleared Chapter 12 – 4 in the main campaign!
System Announcements and New Chat System
We’ve updated the chat system in Mythic Heroes! Now it’s easier than ever to check out your active chats and navigate between them. The new chat can now be found right above the navigation bar at the bottom of your display.
We have also added system announcements to share when other players have received an amazing reward through the Summoner Sanctum, Tomb Explorations, and the Astrolabe of Fate.
Updates and Adjustments
Limited Summon Banner (VIP changes)
The Limited Summon Banner is receiving some VIP treatment! Once you reach a certain VIP level, you will now be able to unlock changes like choosing the SSR and UR in the Left and Center Hero slots, as well as increasing the number of chances to receive your selected Heroes. It is important to know that these changes will not affect the way the Limited Summon Banner previously worked. All players will still be able to choose ONE SSR on the Limited Summon Banner (Right slot) and will have an increased chance of receiving their selected SSR, and the banner SSR/UR Heroes, regardless of VIP level. Below are the VIP levels that these changes will take effect:
- VIP 11 will increase the number of chances at receiving an SSR from both the Left and Right slots from 3 chances to 4 chances.
- VIP 12 will unlock the ‘Select’ feature for the Left SSR slot.
- VIP 13 will increase the number of chances at receiving the selected UR from 2 chances to 3 chances.
- VIP 14 will unlock the ‘Select’ feature for the UR slot.
- VIP 15 will increase the number of chances at receiving an SSR from both the Left and Right slots from 4 chances to 5 chances.
Faction Summon Adjustment
We have made the option to change the selected faction FREE! Now you can choose whichever faction you would like to pull from when using your Faction Summon Scrolls!
We have made adjustments to the Level Cap for Heroes at certain Ascension Levels. You can find these changes in the table below.Note: This does not affect needing Celestial I Heroes to increase the level cap 300+. This remains as +5 levels for every Hero at Celestial I.
Changes to the Astrolabe and gears of Time
Gears of Time will no longer charge passively. Summoners will now be able to claim daily Gears of Time once a day for free from the Astrolabe and can exchange diamonds for additional Gears of Time recharges.
The Astrolabe and Astrolabe of Fate have been updated to include rewards surrounding antiques.
Existing Game Mode Updates
Pantheon Difficulty Adjustments
As many of you experienced, the scaling difficulty of the Pantheon was not sustainable for the majority of players. In this update, we have capped out the difficulty of enemies that you will encounter as you progress through Pantheon completions.
It is also important to note that we have reset EVERYONE’S Pantheon difficulty scaling as of the 1.7 Update, so your first venture to defeat Chronos will feel very easy for everyone and will scale up from there depending on your battle outcome!
Campaign rewards in Main Campaign, Elite Campaign, and Hades’ Hell have been adjusted to reward summoners as they progress throughout each chapter as opposed to only being rewarded after the completion of a full chapter. This means players will now receive rewards after completing a certain amount of stages within each chapter as well as bonus rewards for completing the full chapter. These rewards can be found on the new Campaign Rewards page, along with new Battlepasses available for purchase that will increase the amount of rewards received.
Enemies in the Main Campaign, Elite Campaign and Hades Hell have received changes in difficulty with the addition of Antiques, to help balance progression.
Achievement frequency has also been balanced across the Main Campaign and Hades Hell, due to the addition of Antiques Achievements.
New Campaign Chapters
We have added new map locations to the story, bringing the Campaign to Chapter 36!
Trials of Ascension Adjustments
All three Trials of Ascension will be available to challenge and pillage every day! Now you can earn the core Hero levelling resources each time you enter the Trials.
Zodiac Caverns Adjustments
Players can now challenge each beast an unlimited number of times without exhausting challenge stamina! Rewards can be earned upon successful completion of the challenge or by pillaging the rewards.
Once an Arena season restarts, the Arena points carried over to the next season will now be 10% of the total previous season’s points (was 30%).
Rank rewards and Seasonal rewards in the Arena have also been adjusted to include new Faction Hero Shards and Antique Pirate, Noble, and Royal Treasure.
The Prosperity Tower will now only appear on the first day of Epic Showdowns.
Guild Sharing Packs now accumulate points and provide extra rewards as more guild members participate in the share packs!
Updates to Resources
Changes to Daily Log-In Rewards
- Summoners will now receive a free Standard Summon to use every day! The free daily summon will only be available during the day you log in, so make sure to use it!
- The daily log-in rewards have been adjusted to a 30-day log-in reward plan with additional daily reward purchase options.
Changes to Faith
Faith used to increase a hero’s divinity level will also be changing. Faith is now a consumable resource that will provide faction-specific faith. The consumed Faith will be randomly split across the four factions in Mythic Heroes. For example, consuming 100 Faith can provide 20 Shadowarch Faith, 30 Luminarch Faith, 25 Guardian Faith, and 25 Verdian Faith.
We believe that this change will positively impact players looking to build a wider team of heroes across all four factions and provide more opportunities for advancement across all content within the Ascension Realm.
New Hero Type Cards
We have added new types of Hero cards to the lootpool including, Random Hero Type Cards (Tank, Fighter, Mage, Support), Custom Hero Type Cards and Faction Shards.
Heroes and Equipment
Many changes have been made to equipment, runes, and heroes. On top of brand new hero attributes, some heroes received balance changes and reworks. We’ve also included small indicators beside each hero’s name to quickly show how they have been affected by the patch.
