Update 1.3 Into the Dreamhold – Patch Notes

Important Notice:
Due to an issue affecting several people on Android devices causing the game to lock while salvaging in some situations, we will temporarily be turning off the Full Vault Warning Message for Items.

This will be re-enabled once the permanent fix has been released in an upcoming patch!

A Short Summer

This summer is short in Etheria. Season 1.3: Into the Dreamhold will be a slightly shorter Season than the others before it.

What does this mean?

It means we’re going to give anyone who purchases a Season Pass for Into the Dreamhold an additional 505 Fae Nectar which will be delivered right to your inbox.

We hope this helps you prepare for Fallen Order’s harsh winter.

Season Archive

Past Seasons can now be played via the Season Archive!

  • A Season will be open to you if you purchased a Season Pass while that Season was live
  • You will also be able to purchase access to the Season directly prior to whichever is running currently for Crowns and older ones for Gems! (For instance, this Season is 1.3 Into the Dreamhold, so Season 1.2: The Broken Tree will be available for Crowns and Season 1.1: The Mines of Khazdhul will be available for Gems)
  • Individual Seasons in the Archive will periodically open up to be played for limited periods of time with no purchase or Season Pass required!
  • Any story progress made while the season was live will be carried over once it becomes available in the Archive

Past Season rewards can now be purchased with Ancient Coins!

  • Ancient Coins are an Archive specific currency that is shared across all Archived seasons
  • Ancient Coins can be earned by completing battles in Archived seasons
  • Ancient Coins have a daily limit of 30, meaning you will not be rewarded for further victories in the Archive once you’ve reached that limit
  • Completing Story Quests the first time at each difficulty will reward Ancient Coins. Any subsequent plays (see Chapter Replay) will reward Gold coin.

Archived Chapter Replay

  • Archived Season Chapters become available for replay after they’ve been completed for the first time
  • You can return to a chapter at any time using the Chapter Replay menu
  • Any progress made throughout a chapter is lost if you leave to replay another chapter
  • Any story progress made while the season was live will be carried over once it becomes available in the Archive

The inventory system was in need of a rework.

It was complex, difficult to find what you needed to, didn’t feel good to use and needed a visual overhaul.

Inventory Rework

The vault has been streamlined significantly and works in tandem with your equipped slots

  • Items now highlight when you select the slot you would like to equip something to
  • Comparing items is now a much more smooth and intuitive process
  • You can filter items in a much broader and more visually helpful way
    • You can also filter items with a text field
  • Your equipped minions can now also be changed within this inventory menu.
  • Press the ? button to swap between a preview of your hero, and your hero’s stats.

When we were looking at changing the Inventory, we could see it was far too easy to accidentally salvage an item you didn’t intend to and it was also too difficult to Mass Salvage

The flow of Salvaging has been streamlined in the new Inventory

  • Selecting ‘Salvage’ on any item will now bring up a Mass Salvage option
  • Favorited items can be selected for Salvage but you will get a warning message before being able to proceed with the final Salvage
  • All battle modes are now accessible through a single Battles Menu
  • Your selected favorite mode will appear at the front of the Battles menu list for ease of access!

We’ve condensed and streamlined the Hero menu to provide as much relevant information as clearly as we can.

  • The Kingdoms menu is now directly accessed from the Hero menu, while Party has moved to the Battle menu, and your Friends are now accessed from the Pause Menu
  • Flash offers can now always be accessed from the top system bar by tapping or clicking on the Merchant.
    • You will see a notification pip on the Merchant when new offers are available or when active offers only have 1 hour remaining 
  • The Swap Hero button has been moved to the top system bar so you can now swap your hero from anywhere!
  • Quest Pass has been moved from the bottom to sit alongside the Holiday events on the main Hero menu
  • The Battle Button in the bottom right corner that will take you straight back to your Favorite Battle mode (selected in the Battle Menu)
Heading for QOL & Miscellaneous
  • Updates to Disease functionality
      • Disease is more prominent in 1.3 than in any of our prior updates. As a result, it was the first time we had really encountered it extensively in-game… And it wasn’t much fun to not be able to cast any non-Ultimate spells for the duration of Disease. So, we decided to tune it slightly!

Diseased heroes lose 12 Ultimate Spell Power per turn, while diseased enemies lose 12 Spell Mana per turn

  • Pips no longer show on the header bar chat icon for global messages, but you’ll still see the chat icon light up when you get a new message
Heading for Bug Fixes
Sub-Heading for Gameplay  
  • 1.2 Mini-Boss “Hellion” was causing a Null Reference Exception on Entry
