    Early access to balancing changes


    Because these changes can unfairly influence the seasonal leaderboards we are going to offer the option to test the game by manually installing the APK. Before doing so please be aware of the following consequences:
    • You will not be able to use a previous game version, effectively locking you out of other platforms until we go live with the patch in early September.
    • You will not be able to submit scores on the seasonal leaderboards anymore (you will still be able to collect the seasonal bank once the season ends).


    If that’s not acceptable for you we recommend using a new account for testing.


    For testing convenience we are also going to launch a special ANB event available only for this version. This will help players experiment with new items by using ephemeral crafting. To keep a fair playing ground celestial transforms and medals will not be offered as a reward for this event.

    When will the ANB start and how long will it last?

        Looks good! Potential builds at first glance:
        - Warrior Xp farmer with a 6fury and fire lily
        - Mage/bh xp farmer with brooch of stormcaller, with +nature damage?
        - Arcanist with high deflect and/or ripple
        - SCR mage defense is buffed significantly, would be cool to try that if fps didn't plummet :/
        - ELR mage with brooch of vampirism instead of vial
        - Apprentice with lvl 50 immolate and GMC? Got no clue if lvl 50 immolate burns hard enough : )
        ...
        Mage: Anba
        Bounty Hunter: Gemma

          Thank you for providing extensive patch notes, this will definitely ease the testing!

          Not sure the buffs to different BH sets will be sufficient to outperform the dominance of Snipe DoT's quadratic damage, but happy to try and find out.

            Same here. Wondering if the buff to Demolitionist will make it playable now... I also held on to my old Havoc BH, so interesting to see what damage I can do with Heatseekers now.

            Havoc can reach TL 137.
            With an additional 55% on all explosives, when everything the build uses is explosives, that's already good for TL140+.
            Then that bonus on the heatseekers - that are already duplicated by the 6-set - is insane dmg. Then the same bonus further compounds with the Magnetic trap and the 2-set enhancements.
            It's going to be quite good.

            I'm not even considering the Tracer Ammo or Explosive Shot boosts. . .

          the current LB result will not reset?

            I am really looking foreward to this patch. I am so glad that you are going to buff all of those "meme"-sets, which aren´t viable at all.
            This will motivate me again plaing this game. Has become boring to play, if only one set per class is viable and if you are forced to follow only one strict path if you want to have success. Diversity means everything in RPG´s like Eternium. I tried to play some off meta sets in ANB´s, but they were so bad that i dropped the whole ANB´s.
            I have some more suggestions:
            Belt of Arcane Shielding - Deflect rating doubled (the - armor should be removed at all, it will still not be worth to wear this item, because the loss of defensive stats is too enormous)
            Eridanus, Greatstaff of the Magi - the Ripple effect now deals 10000% weapon damage, up from 4000% (maybe add a bigger explosion radius. It feels like you do barely hit any opponents, unless they are standing inside your mage)
            • Apprentice Vestments 4 pieces set bonus - The change to gain a protective shield has been increased to 50%.
            • Apprentice Vestments 6 pieces set bonus - Immolate created by the set is now rank 50.
            • --> would be great, if you add tooltips here (how strong is the base value of Immolate rank 50? Is it 320% weapondamage? How strong is the shield?

              So can you clarify that existing leaderboard scores will still count but not be able to improve them?

                  If so, will my ratings be affected? Am I in the top 26 now, will I lose my reward this season?

                Lucky double perfect craft shows that the max base Block Rating for a Shield is unchanged, and also that the internal coefficient for the Block Rating crafted stat is changed from 2 to 1.5:

                  Does not work, based on testing in the Training Grounds.

                    Your current score on the season LB will remain intact if you choose to install this apk.

                        Yes, everything will transfer from your ANB toon when you end the event just like it does during a normal ANB. The only change will be in the rewards offered. CTs and medals are not available for the Alpha ANB.

                      Fury 6 new bonus does not show in "positive effects list" (clicking on toon portrait)

                      Still can't keep Arcanist alive, even substituting Paradox instead of Time Walk and with 8500+ Deflect. The cooldowns are *so bad* that, although Paradox + Blink + SIngularity is 6 charges, I can't muster the 7th in time for permaSoft. Plus you get more easily killed during SoFT now. I tried T140 and it was a suicide fest.

                      Red (Developer) maybe you could post a short video of your own Arcanist gameplay? Definitely feels that I'm missing something.
