Armello’s new patch arrived last night and brings with it five new major features.
The first two have little to do with the game itself, but how the game works. A new version of the muliplayer systems has been released, focusing on player disconnects and AI takeovers that mark a significant milestne. There has also been an in game shop set up, providing an alternative to the having to navigate out of the game.
The meat and potatoes however is the addition of amulets, hero skins and a balance pass on the cards in game.
The two new amulets are as follows:
- Discipline: Doubles the Clan Affinity Dice bonus
- Resist: Gain +1 Shield in Battles and Perils
