TOME Relaunch Update

Greetings

TOME Relaunch Update

Welcome back to TOME: Immortal Arena. We have been hard at work to bring TOME back bigger and better than ever, and the wait is over! A lot has changed since the last time you stepped foot on the arena floor. To prepare you for battle, below is a full list of changes that have been made over the last month. We are very excited to be back and share all our hard work with you.

 

New Guardians

Three new Guardians have been added!

Cyrus: The Forgotten King

Cyrus, The Forgotten King is the first melee Slayer from the Fire Domain. Unlike most Slayers, Cyrus is not afraid to stand toe to toe with the enemy!

 

  • Piercing Flame (Q)
    • (Passive) Cyrus gets a stack of Blazing Armor for 5 seconds when an enemy is hit by his basic attack, Piercing Flame, Battle Cry, or Shield Bash. Each stack lowers the amount of damage taken by 2 from basic attacks and can not exceed 10 stacks
    • (Active) Cyrus swings his sword at target enemy, dealing damage, with an extra 5% damage per stack of Blazing Armor.
  • Battle Cry (W)
    • Cyrus shouts in target direction, slowing all enemy Guardians by 25% for 3 seconds. Cyrus gains a stack of Blazing Armor for each enemy slowed this way.
  • Shield Bash (E)
    • Cyrus smacks target enemy with his shield, dealing damage. Enemies hit with this ability take 10% more damage for 4 seconds.
  • Scorched Earth (R)
    • Cyrus sends a fiery wave in target direction, dealing damage to all enemies hit (half damage to minions) and leaving behind a scorched patch of earth for 9 seconds. In this area, Cyrus is immune to crowd control and gains a 35% boost to Attack Speed and Movement Speed.

 

Valora: The Wings of Stridis

Valora, The Wings of Stridis is the first Tank from the Air Domain. Valora uses her precision and wings to aid her in controlling her lane.

  • Foray (Q)
    • After a brief charge up, Valora charges into battle, dealing damage to the first enemy she encounters. If she travels far enough, the damage is doubled.
  • Crippling Strikes (W)
    • Valora empowers her weapon for 7 seconds. While empowered, her default attacks apply a debuff that lasts for 3 seconds. This debuff slows the target by 12% and deals damage per second for each stack. This debuff stacks unlimited times.
  • Make Way (E)
    • Valora swings her mighty spear, dealing damage to all enemies in front of her and knocking them back.
  • Upheaval (R)
    • Valora carries target enemy Guardian into the sky before slamming them into the ground, dealing damage and knocking nearby enemies airborne on impact. Valora and her target are untargetable while airborne.

Vandus: The Prime Magus

Vandus, The Prime Magus, is a ranged Tactician from the Creation Domain. Vandus knows that knowledge equals true power and is willing to disprove anyone who dares disagree.

  • Binding Force (Q)
    • Vandus creates a projectile in front of him that travels backward toward the casting point. It collides with the first enemy hit, dealing damage and immobilizing the enemy for 2 seconds.
  • Inhibited (W)
    • Vandus launches a slow moving ball of energy at target enemy. The ball has 10 seconds to reach its target. If it collides with the enemy, it Slows, Blinds, and Silences the enemy for 2 seconds.
    • Reactivate this ability to retarget the ball toward another enemy while it is in flight.
  • Momentum Shift (E)
    • Vandus targets himself or friendly Guardian, granting 1.5 movement speed for 3 seconds.
    • If Vandus casts this ability on an ally, he also gains the same movement speed bonus.
  • Arcane Beam (R)
    • Vandus creates an arcane conduit at his location. After 1.5 seconds, a beam of energy flows across the targeted area for 6 seconds. Enemies in a beam are slowed by 30%, and suffer 7% of their max health as damage every second.
    • This ability can be cast again within 6 seconds of your last cast before it goes on cooldown, up to a maximum of 3 times.

Skins

Two brand new skins are live and available for purchase now!

 

Jinobi

 

Arctic Auberon

Guardian Affinity / Domain Favor

Playing your favorite Guardian, or your favorite Domain is no longer just fun, it’s now rewarding as well!

 

Guardian Affinity

As you play with a specific Guardian, you will gain experience, or “Affinity”, for that Guardian.  Upon reaching new levels with a Guardian you will earn various rewards:

 

  • Devotion – Devotion is the earned currency in TOME.  Players primarily gain Devotion from competing in matches with other players, but can also gain some Devotion when reaching the first level up for each Guardian.
  • Dance Animations – Each Guardian has a dance animation that can be earned through Affinity.  Once the Guardian is purchased and a player has reached Level 3, players can then activate the Guardian’s dance animation by pressing “D” in game.
  • Relics – As players level up their Guardian, players will earn Relics that will allow them to slightly change the behavior of one of that Guardian’s abilities.
  • Ascended Skins – Once players reach the current maxed out level for a Guardian, players will earn a free, Ascended Skin for that Guardian.

 

 

Domain Favor

As you play, you will also gain experience, or “Favor”, for the Domain of your selected Guardian.  When you gain a level with a Domain you will earn various rewards:

  • Blessings – Once earned, a Blessing can be equipped on any Guardian, regardless of Domain.  Blessings will provide additional bonuses such as starting a match with 300 Gold, improving your damage against structures, increase your Guardian’s maximum Health, etc.
  • Platinum – Platinum is the premium currency of TOME.  Aside from purchasing Platinum, you will also earn some by achieving the later levels of each Domain.
