  • Clarified objective text for "The Great Offer"
  • Fixed a crash that happened if you saved and loaded a game after casting a city enhancement.

UI Improvements & Visual improvements

  • Darkling Shaman, Trog Commander, Trog Sniper, and Urxen commander now have unique visuals so they are immediately recognizable for their unique gameplay abilities

  • Adjusted textures on Rival pioneer units
  • Adjusted chasm wall texture values
  • Improved the City Details Window to better accommodate cities with lots of improvements

Balance & Tweaks

  • "Restore Land" is now a 1 tile spell and is castable in more parts of the world
  • Decreased the charging time for Drogon’s summoning ability "Draconian Ally" from 10 to 6. It now costs 10 mana
  • Raise Land can no longer be cast on Mountains or Shadow Mountains.
  • Drakes are now slightly more resistant to your charms
  • The final battle with Sorcerer King is tougher on tougher levels
  • Legendary item 'Archon Plate' no longer gives +100 physical def per shard (though that certainly was a legendary buff)

  • Every so many turns, the Lieutenants will gain additional units added to their army
  • Lieutenants will start destroying cities when the threat is 5.

  • Varda the Slayer rebalanced:
    • Fire Breath special ability changed from double Varda’s attack value to 8 + 4 per shard damage.
    • Backswing removed. (It was either that or Maul, and Maul felt too harsh)
    • Last Stand special ability changed to +5 attack, +5 initiative, and +10 defense (that was way too much initiative and dodge, sorry!)
  • Silindros the Avenger tweaks:
    • Army of One special ability changed from +12 attack / +12 initiative to +12 attack / +12 defense.
    • Iron Resolve: Fixed a bug where it was giving +15HP per shard

Bug Fixes
