SUMMER GAME CHANGES: INTRODUCING NEW ITEMS AND ENVIRONMENTAL GOLD

Starting with the summer season, you'll have a lot more freedom and variety in building builds. The reason for this is the addition of new items and the overhaul of builds; supports no longer need to purchase the Ironguard Contract as their first item. The Ironguard mechanic is now “always on”, without having to buy anything from the Shop. In addition, we changed the range of gold and experience and the gold obtained per second. We really recommend that you read the summer changes as they will affect all your matches!

SUMMER SEASON HALCYON FOLD MAP

NEW SUPPORT: LYRA

Lyra uses her healing and protection magic to turn enemies' positions into zones of power for her allies. Utilities and defense items enhance Lyra's role as a healer, while crystal items make her a formidable but fragile mage.

LYRA EARLY ACCESS PERIOD

Lyra can only be unlocked by ICE for the first 7 days. After that you can unlock Lyra with ICE or Glory.

PRINCIPLE ARCANUM (HEROIC BONUS)

Lyra's attacks are arcane missiles, they deal crystal damage. If she remains in position after launching an attack, she automatically channels and launches an even more powerful arcane missile, this missile will deal additional crystal damage and apply a brief slow to the target. Each channeled missile consumes energy, but Lyra can continue to launch them even if she runs out of energy.


IMPERIAL SIGIL (A)

Lyra creates a seal at the target location and reveals nearby enemies. As long as the seal remains active, it will heal nearby allied heroes and damage nearby enemy heroes. Lyra can reactivate this ability at any time to detonate the seal, dealing powerful damage to nearby enemies while granting a burst of healing and a moderate movement speed boost to nearby allies.


BRIGHT BULWARK (B)

After a brief delay, Lyra launches a pulse of magical energy, dealing damage and applying a gradually decreasing delay to surrounding enemies. The affected area becomes a fenced-in protection zone that deals the same damage and slows enemies that try to cross the boundary. Enemies within the zone are trapped, they can move normally, but cannot activate movement abilities.

ARCANE PASSAGE (C)

Lyra teleports to the target area, leaving portals at the beginning and end of the teleport. Portals last for a few seconds, allowing allies and enemies to move freely through them in both directions. Heroes must wait several seconds before re-entering the portal. This cooldown also applies to enemies when Lyra hits them with the initial pulse of Bright Bulwark's ability.

LEARNING ABOUT LYRA

Learn all about Lyra's abilities, as well as the best team compositions to go with her and how to beat her if you find her in the Fold.

Find new skins at the Vainglory Market every Friday.

NEW ART FOR HEROES

Some of our heroes will receive special attention this summer. Keep an eye on Vainglory's Market for new hero arts.


NEW COMMUNITY QUESTIONS AND IDEAS

The summer season brings new quest types and an incredible number of additional quests to Vainglory. In addition, we will start accepting suggestions for new quests and pick some that will be turned into real quests in the next update!

NEW QUESTION TYPES

  • Collect gold from the Gold Mine
  • get assists
  • Die less than 5 times and win
  • Use Glory's Advantage
  • earn gold
  • ???? (We'll let you figure this one out. You'll know when you find it.)

HERO QUEST

Heroes now have more quests:

  • Play any game mode with [Specific Hero]
  • Eliminate enemy heroes with [Specific Hero]
  • Earn gold with [specific hero]
  • Also: Lance now has quests like most heroes. (Sorry, Petal!) 

DAILY ACHIEVEMENTS AND QUESTIONS

QUESTION TIMER

  • The new timers will tell you exactly how long it takes for the new queue quest to appear.

EXPANDED 'PRACTICE' MENU

Now also includes:

  • COOP vs Bots: Battle Royale – Play with other players against bots in lane-only matches.
  • COOP vs Bots: Default – Play with other players against bots on the full Halcyon Fold map.

CONNECTION PING INDICATOR

Every now and then, a local internet issue can result in a frustrating gaming experience. This new ping indicator will allow you to get a better idea of ​​the quality of the incoming connection from your router and ISP. Note: although this indicator provides general information about the connection, it is not able to predict local ping spikes.

STANDARDIZATION OF THE PRICE OF HEROES

The following heroes received increased ICE and Glory value in Update 1.19: Koshka, Petal, Catherine, and Glaive. With this change, these heroes will be able to be included in future promotions, events and special packs, something that couldn't be done before.

NEW ITEMS IN SUMMER 1.19 UPDATE

The other big reason for more flexibility in builds is the greater variety of items!

NEW CONTRACTS

With the introduction of Environmental Gold, the Ironguard Contract is no longer an essential item for any and all support builds. Instead, some other options have been introduced in-game in the OTHER section of the Store. They can grant you considerable power early on in the game, or if you feel the need for a power boost at any time during the game, and for a fair price, you can buy these fantastic Contracts. However, keep in mind that none of these bounties can be upgraded into another item, but they can be sold for half price.

IRONGUARD CONTRACT

Ironguard is now specifically geared towards allowing a slightly more confrontational exit from the jungle and keeping the jungle duo more health in case of invasions. Despite no longer being a necessity, Ironguard is still an excellent first-time purchase.

  • Passive: When a nearby hero kills a jungle monster, both of you will be healed in 75 of health
    Alcance: 14 meters
  • Value: 300 gold

PROTECTOR CONTRACT

A slightly more defensive start, the Protector Contract lets you protect your teammates as long as you're close enough to do so. This is a great buy if you're expecting heavy attacks from the enemy team or planning to fight early in the game.

  • Activate: Grants a health barrier of 120 to the nearest allied hero during 2 seconds. recharge of 5seconds. Maximum of 2 loads, 20 seconds per charge.
    Alcance: 8 meters.
  • Value: 300 gold

DRAGONBLOOD CONTRACT

The Dragonblood Contract allows you to be more aggressive at the beginning of the game and allows you to dominate the game from the beginning, however, this initial advantage decays very quickly. Having a reasonably long cooldown and fixed damage is a great tool for calculated ambushes and strong early game offense, but it's also a great item to sell around mid-game.

  • Activate: After a short delay, nearby enemies are marked for 3 seconds. An ally's next basic attack will consume the mark, slowing the enemy by 30% during 2 seconds and provoking 75bonus crystal damage. 15 seconds recharge, 2 non-maximum loads, 40 seconds per charge.
    Alcance: 4 meters.
  • Value: 300 gold

NEW UTILITIES AND TOUCH-UPS

STORMGUARD BANNER

Stormguard Banner received some modifications. We want it to be a strong choice for heroes who have weak abilities to take out waves of minions or clear the jungle, and for teams that intend to control objectives rather than constantly confronting enemies. However, this item comes with the inconvenience of having to sacrifice a considerable amount of combat power.

  • Passive: After using an ability, your next 3 basic attacks, within the next 6 seconds, will trigger a bonus of 75 real damage against non-heroes or 20 against heroes. Can be renewed once every 6 seconds.

  • +150 power
  • Energy Battery (300) + formula (800) = 1100

STORMCROWN

An improved version of the new Stormguard Banner. Deals considerable but not excessive damage to heroes. It's fantastic for destroying objectives quickly.

  • Passive: After using an ability, your next 4 basic attacks, within the next 6 seconds, will trigger a bonus of 140 real damage against non-heroes or 35against heroes. Can be renewed once every 6 seconds.
  • + 30 % reload speed
  • +5 power recharge
  • +200 power
  • +150 of health

  • Passive: Dealing damage to enemies instantly adjusts the cooldown to 12seconds if above that.
  • Armor, shield and health regen have been removed

WAR TREADS (WARHORN IS NOW A TYPE OF BOOT)

These new boots have replaced the Warhorn as a mobility item option for the team. If you're ever in a situation where you need to get in quickly with your team or get out of a fight really fast, War Treads is the perfect buy.

    • Activate: Nearby allies run for 2 seconds (60 seconds recharge).
    • Passive: +0.4 of movement speed
    • Passivo: Travel Boots
    • +500 of health
    • Stormguard passive removed

    • Passive: +0.5 of movement speed
    • Passivo: Travel Boots
    • +200 of health
    • + 15 % reload speed

    • +250 power
    • Travel Boots (1000) + Void Battery (700) + formula (600) = 2300
