Instant Pet Hatching Event, New Loot Changes!

A strange celestial phenomenon is causing our pet eggs to hatch quicker than normal. Much quicker. Our Petrinarian is not quite sure what’s causing it.

For this weeklong event, all pets will hatch in seconds instead of 8 hours. Seize the opportunity, Defenders! Go forth and hatch pets! Hatch ‘em all!

In other news, our Loot Cave 2.0 event was a huge success! Defender feedback was overwhelmingly positive -- so positive that these drop rates are now the norm! We’ve also made two additional changes to the new drop rate based on some of the feedback we received. First, we’ve removed loot drops on wave 1 in End Game playlists, and we’ve slightly reduced the Legendary drop rate in NM3 and NM4 from what they were in the Loot Cave 2.0 event (so higher than before the event but lower than during the event).

You’re amazing, Defenders! We’re thrilled at the enthusiastic response and looking forward to more collaborations in the future!

It sucks that the pets before this event didn't get hatched. Guess I have to wait 5 more hours till I can enjoy this event :[

Loving it. I really like being able to immediately tell if a new pet is better than one I hatched yesterday or last week, etc. I keep the best one and sell the inferior one. It's like picking up a piece of armor and immediately figuring out whether it is better than the one you have equipped.

I never really saw the rationale for limiting players to getting a new pet once every eight hours. Did that benefit anyone or anything?

One thing to consider is whether you should have particular pets as rewards for beating certain maps. Maybe you just want to do things differently than DD1 ... not sure.

I freaked out at first since the patch went live mid map for me. Thought I had stumbled upon some glitch. Realized it was probably an event and checked the website. SO glad I did because even better than pets is the change to loot tables. 

As a new player who started earlier this week during loot crave and grinded to 50 asap and then got (luckily) carried in nm3 with a now 510 ipwr App, I wasn't looking forward to it taking ages to gear my other 3 heros once I got them to 50. So glad things are going to stay as they are. It lets the dedicated players (read:more free time) get to endgame nm4 progression a lot faster and that's my favorite part of the DD series. 

So far i'm enjoying the game a lot. Definitely worth the money. I just wish it was a bit faster to grind alts to 50 since 15 hours for first, and then 12 for second is a bit much when it's pretty hard to solo anything without 4 50's and finding a geared team hasn't seemed easy.


Thanks Trendy! <3

If the autoloot bags would be filled up after every wave, then I would be really glad about the loot change. At the current rate it is annoying as hell not to see defenses and enemies because of the loot spam.

Haha, in response to my earlier feedback for the loot drops, I give you this:B80115DD024370F0157C0544550BA99BA2FE3A13

AKA, what am I looking at?!

Whilst this was on Onslaught, this is a very real representation of everything else now. (I still appreciate it, but they do get in the way visually now)

Anyway, I guess I'll butt around with the egg stuff later, I'm still sore about losing 5 hours of work from data loss.

Making the RIGHT decisions, eh? Well done! 

But now there's "too much loot on screen"! Please give us the option of instantly selling an item instead of bringing it into our intentory!

Yeah that`s a great ideea hope it will get implemented with a bind like press mouse 3(or idk any key ) in order to instantly sell unpicked items.

Agree about the screen getting covered, harming the visibility of the scene. I think giving us a slider in options on how dense or translucent we want the beams from loot be, would be a great solution.

Very disappointed that the insane amount of loot will now be the norm. The rainbow is annoying on the game field and mythics should feel fantastic to get in my opinion but now I don't even bother checking them out as I have another 10 from the same map sitting there. 

However, to not be all negative I do like the instant pet hatching.

Good change. Now it's more viable to get gear you are looking for much faster with less grind.

NM4, even with NM4 gear (not the absolute best) is still not a viable option for anyone :(     its like saying oh look you can play NM4 and get the best gear in the game.. But you can't !!  You can maybe beat the first wave.. But the second wave, I have yet to see anyone survive it.. So for the time being, should we just assume NM3 is end game and any loot you happen to get from NM4 ipwr 600+ is just to make NM3 easier, & not made to actually beat NM4 ?

autocollect bags per wave not per match, and possibly add in an auto sell option under the organization tab for an auto collect bag? would be nice :]

[[93291,users]] I agree that NM4 is far from balanced, but I can solo several levels with various success (a lot depending on which builder I use during waves and what type of mobs / megabosses show up and in which lanes)

Sadly solo-ing means bringing four builders to your hero deck so no damage dealing heroes. I really really wish you could buy / add a 5th and/or 6th hero to the hero deck.

They do plan on adding in the possibility of bringing in more hero's per round, but I believe they are also looking at either giving bonuses, for bringing less, or even creating game modes where you are only allowed to bring 1 or 2 hero's..  and yes they have stated that at this time NM4 is not meant to be beat.. it is just to test your might..  So I guess that is fine for Alpha.. still wish I could get the best possible gear though.. not something thats almost the best..
