This update ushers in the Spring Scramble event and also big updates to gameplay balance. Included are changes to Guarding and attack damage formulas.

Spring Scramble

Three new Acolyte Beasts have been introduced. They’re quite similar but each of them grant different battle benefits. Lucky players may receive one or more of these eggs as Battle Rewards during this event, so get crackin’!

Game Mechanic Updates

The player’s Guard previously had a very fast regeneration rate. This offers characters like Luck Monkey a highly offensive role with no real risk of damage. The regeneration rate has been reduced and some Celestians are  capable of dealing more Guard damage. Shield pressure is something players will have to manage more delicately when fighting Celestians.

The damage formula and attack damage totals have been adjusted for each attack in-game. This required a rebalance of Celestian and Beast health totals, lending a better advantage to some previously lackluster player attacks.
