Our next patch, Loot & Survive, is coming July 28th. It's a massive patch, with a new levelling/progression curve, level cap increase to 50, rewards & Skill Sphere choices as you level up, a completely new loot/stat system, Onslaught Mode, Nightmare mode, an economy balance to make gold more meaningful, and so much more.

Because of the scope of these changes, we have to wipe some of the profile data for the game. This data will simply not exist after the update. While all of you have been voting on the kind of wipe you’d prefer for Wipeaggedon, we’ve been furiously reading your comments and opinions. We’ve noticed some confusion over the reward structure for the upcoming wipe, and decided to make some changes:


Corrupted Welp

Everyone who has leveled up at least one hero to level 25 will be awarded a unique, custom pet. To obtain this award, you must complete this challenge by 5 PM EDT, July 26th.

4 Survivor Hero Costumes [updated 7/18]

Everyone who has leveled up at least one of each hero class to level 25 will get a unique hero costume for that class. To obtain these awards, you must complete this challenge by 5 PM EDT, July 26th.

It’s our hope that everyone will log in post-Wipeaggeddon, ready to level up anew with their new costumes and pets!


Wyvern Token Rewards

Finally, for the past week, all of you have been using your Influence points on which kind of wipe you’d like to see -- a Full Wipe or Partial Wipe. As of the writing of this post, Full Wipe is 7000 points ahead -- but, we recognize this could change at any moment.

We’ve received a ton of feedback from the Partial Wipe camp, asking us to create a reward for the hard-earned Wyvern Tokens they’ve obtained. Well look no further! IF the Full Wipe wins, we will be awarding the following amount of gems based on the amount of Wyvern Tokens you’ve earned by 5 PM EDT, July 26th:


Wyvern Tokens Earned

Gems Rewarded

20 - 39

150

40 - 79

300

80 - 119

500

120 +

1200


Thank you for all of your suggestions over the course of this Influence Vote! At Trendy, we believe that this will reward players who’ve earned Wyvern Tokens while keeping with the spirit of those voting for a “Full Wipe”.


Watch our last Devstream below for some exciting reveals about Loot & Survive -- including a sneak peek at new pets, our first premium pets, and how Wyvern Tokens will be easier to obtain. Also, tune in next Friday at 5pm EST for the complete unveiling of the Loot & Survive patch, launching July 28th!

For Wyvern tokens, does "earned" include the tokens i have spent already?

According to the Devstream. Yes. They count based on the tokens you have collected in your lifetime.

According the the devstream they said yes to that, they actually are able to track the amount of tokens you ever earned and will give out gems based on that

Far more generous than I was expecting with WT to gems exchange I have to say.  More than happy to see a full wipe now kobold.png

Yep! "Earned" tokens includes all tokens you have in your inventory and all tokens you've spent.

Glad to see the vocal minority has effectively neutered Trendy.  What was the point exactly of this influence vote if now you're just giving rewards like that?  You're digging a very deep hole for yourself when you're so frightened of upsetting your fanbase you can't even do normal early access functions without being forced to make concessions.  But hey, at least now I know if I kick and scream loud enough I might be able to get something I want from the game.

Oh calm yourself, why are you acting like them giving us stuff so that some less dedicated players dont feel like they dont want to come back after the wipe, is the worst thing a game development team could ever do and is going to drive the game into the ground.

Yea, I hate when devs try to please their playerbase.

Still unclear on the costumes.

Everyone who has leveled up at least one of each hero class to level 25 will get a unique hero costume for that class.

Did you mean to write that Everyone who has leveled up at least one of any hero class to level 25 will get a unique hero costume for that class.? Or that Everyone who has leveled up all hero classes to level 25 will get a unique hero costume for all classes?

I see your point, but i think you are failing to take the time to analyze it from another persons point of view. It is kind of sad that the devs cant do anything without people like you kicking up a *** storm for no reason at all. Easy to whine, it is much harder to actually do something. How about you just relax and be happy with what is coming. People are going to get stuff for their hard work, and the fact that you cry about it shows how pitiful you are. I hope i wasted your life by writing this big long response but i typed it out in like 15 seconds and i imagine it is taking you minutes to read. You whiny little brat.

Question:

can you please add a bonus to the 4 lvl 25 to add 4 pets instead of 1? so i can have it on all? i would suggest a cross hero pet use, but that dosent work with individual hero stats goal.

Djarex is wrong.

You get Apprentice to level 25, you get the apprentice costume.

You get Huntress to level 25, you get the huntress costume.

Same with monk and squire. 

So you can get 1-4 costumes depending on how many of the different heroes you can get up to level 25.

The original plan was as Djarex said you needed all 4 to get the costumes, but dye to confusion in the community, they changed it so you get one for any class you lvled even if you dont have all classes at 25, meaning it prolly gonna make even more confusion funnily enough i bet :P

This patch is going to be awesome! The hype is real. Just one small last wish, please do a numbers balance on the overall uber skill spheres. I know it was said on the stream that it might happen, but this whole content patch, and then having flamethrower tower still being terribad would just make Apprentices sad.

Hey pmasher I finished up my 2nd abridged Devstream Recap. Enjoy :)



Fantastic job again! These are great TLDRs for the whole community :)

One important note - only certain tiers of pets are going to visually evolve. Originally we had all pets visually evolve (as you rightly predicted in the video), but we decided to split the evolutions into seperate pets for variety of reasons.

I, too, would like to have 1 pet for each character class I leveled up to level 25. 4 costumes, 4 pets. That would be super great! Either way, this new patch is looking to be super megalo awesome!!! :-) :-)

After some deep reflection and the new wyvern token reward I dont feel so bad... Will still miss my costume exp.

I'm happy to continue playing but is there any way to know if there will be more wipes? If so I'd prefer to just come back once all the wipes are finished
