Phil, Elliot and Dan reveal the first details on EV2 and talk about our new "mid-milestone" update: the Unholy Catacombs!
Gun Witch officially wins the Influence Vote!
Soon, you'll get to pick the hero after the Gun Witch.
Gun Witch uses a new weapon type. Still figuring out the name, but we're calling them Gun-Brooms. If you have a name suggestion, please tell us in the comments!
We had our first Weekend Event: Mission Madness! Last weekend, you could get a Daily Mission every 8 hours. If you liked it, please let us know.
New Enemy: Siege Tank: A new slow moving, long-range enemy that fires rockets at the core and at players. Crushes defenses that get in its way including traps. Has a weak spot in the back that, when a player starts to shoot it, will cause the Tank to focus on that player.
Abyss Lord is now 10,000 medals. If you haven't earned him yet, now's the perfect time to get him.
Series EV2: Her core fantasy is based all around her gun.
Series EV2 Lore:
Matured mentally from DD1 but not physically
Grew apart from the four original heroes
Left to join the Talon Guard
Severely damaged, original chassis shattered
Sought out her creator
Has now returned with a new body
Series EV2 Node Defenses:
In DD1, you connected point A to point B with nodes. The length of the line determined how much DU it cost.
In DD2, you can connect point A to B to C and on and on.
Series EV2 Pickup Defenses:
Using defense mana, EV2 can create pickups with defense mana that give attachments to her gun. Think of these like gun pickups in arena shooters.
Series EV2 Arm Cannon:
Uses canisters based on the different weapon types in the game. When a weapon drops and it’s for EV2, it’ll turn into a canister. Each canister type changes her primary attack and secondary attack based on the weapon type, so for example a Sword Canister will give EV2 more up-close-and-personal attacks. EV2’s eyes and canister color will change depending on the canister type used.
“Mid-Milestone” Update Coming in April: Unholy Catacombs Update
First, what is a mid-milestone update? Our major patches (like Calling All Heroes) are called milestone updates. These happen usually every 6-8 weeks. We’re experimenting with putting out a smaller update with a little bit of content in the middle of a milestone to give you something to do while you wait for the larger updates.

Spectral Knight Incursion
Unique Map Drop: Claymore of Unholy Fire Squire Sword: Unique Legendary item that adds a flamethrower to the Squire shield block and adds a chance to oil enemies (so you could activate the Ignite combo)! This sword has multiple variables that can roll in a wide range, including the iPWR (rolls up to 750), the cone angle, the range, the amount of damage it deals and the chance to oil. The idea is to bring back the DD1 mentality of having maps with unique drops that you can farm to find the best of the best and that there’s more than just iPWR differences between the different variations of the sword.
Unique Map Drop: iPWR 750 Chest Piece. Drops for any hero.
Hero slots will be purchasable for 2,000 Defender Medals
