The Power Surge update is live now on PC and PS4! Here are the patch notes:
New Challenge: Power Surge!
Storm’s a-brewin’ at Dragonfall Bazaar! While the storm rages, towers gain supercharged attack speed, instant upgrading and instant build time during Combat Phase, but the intensity causes towers to explode after a short time. Can you survive the storm?
Glaive of the Storms Monk Weapon
Guaranteed drop from the Power Surge Challenge.
Walking Tempest - 40% increased movement speed. Basic attacks deal [20-40%] Hero Damage as Magical Storm Damage.

While gliding, primary attacks are ranged lightning bolts that deal [250-450%] of your Ability Power as Magical Storm Damage.
