The Beta server has been updated this Friday, February 16th. Come and discover the latest developments and changes, share with us your feedback. Be careful, the Beta will close on Monday!

The Huppermage gets a makeover in Update 1.59! Come try this new version in our new Beta. Attention, it closes on Monday at 3:00 PM CET!

The year 2018 is still fresh, and fighting rages on in the new Battlefields, but you may already be wondering what the next update has in store!

Without revealing everything, we'd like to go ahead and share some of the class balancing that's to come. Given that these changes will be implemented gradually, we propose to do the following: one class at a time, we'll present our intended changes and allow you to test them successively in the Beta!


Released in early 2016, the Huppermage class has taken quite a while to reveal its potential. Easy to learn but difficult to master, this class features complex gameplay, the potential of which is unlocked progressively as the Huppermage levels up.

It nevertheless suffers from flaws that we'll attempt to correct with this update:

  • Lack of damage early in the game
  • Lack of fluidity in Rune management
  • Effects requiring setup over several turns without much reward

As such, here is a brief description of the improvements we'll be making:

  • Damage early in the game: Increasing the ratio of elemental damage to AP.
  • More fluid gameplay: Reducing the AP costs of numerous spells (Resonance, Collapse, Eclipse, Diurnal Butterflies, Dancing Shadows).
  • Choice of dominant Mastery: A spell of each element costing 2 AP steals Mastery of the element used. Also, the Mastery generated now depends on the last Rune generated, not the Runes possessed.
  • More distinct elemental branches: Secondary effects of elemental spells will be updated.
  • Willo-the-Wisp and Visio Imperum will be fully reworked.

Test all the new features offered by our Game Designers this weekend and give us your feedback in this topic. Your opinion is very important for our team! It allows us to know if we are going in the good direction. So do not hesitate to tell us what you think about it.

Here is the detailed changelog of the Huppermage changes.
