Appirits, the Japanese developer of the turn-based browser game Einherjar – The Viking’s Blood has just released several big updates for the game in order to improve gaming experience for their community since 6 March 2013 (GMT+8). The update phase includes several factors regarding a new building, some monster units and other new items and equipment. Details are as below.
First of all, there will be more new fighting units joining in the game’s world. They are monsters that have been defeated by Einherjar heroes and now have surrendered their evil path to fight alongside with players. They can be summoned by gold from a brand new building called MONSTER SQUARE. For this update time, those new monster units include Fairy -> Sylph -> Dark Sylph/High Sylph, Undead -> Skull Viking -> Dark Night, Ogre -> Juton -> Ymir/Muspel.
In order to transform those monsters to upper classes, players will need to train and sacrifice them to obtain respective Monster Souls then produce Monster Proofs from them. And they can have monster units mate with each other to inherit stats and skills like other normal units.
Secondly, the hero summon will be adjusted properly to bring players more benefits when using Power. From now on, elite heroes with special skills (Lightning Attack, Direct Attack, God Luck, etc.) will be ready to be summoned at the square at a certain rate, making players’ Power consumption more valuable. Power is a feature which gives players several in-game advantages like recruiting stronger units, boosting training time, etc.
Thirdly, new skills and crystals will be also updated, including Magic Counter Attack, Magic Filter, Grudge, HP Up, and Spirit Defense. However, 3 skills namely Spirit Defense (Fairy), HP Up (Ogre) and Grudge (Undead) will be inherited only along units of the same job. So players should pay attention to that when planning next generations of their monster fighters.
Moreover, now by having units perform training at homebase players will be able to collect God Bloods (Odin, Freya, Thor) in order to develop their Viking units. And another important improvement is in the sacrifice ceremony. By sacrificing warriors, they will be likely to receive special materials like Strength Blood, Tec Blood, Agi Blood, etc. in addition to normal Soul Chalices. However, that will be based on the randomness.
And the last is a small update for Edinburgh market that now will exhibit more armors for players to purchase. Although they are not extremely powerful items which can be only earned through long progress of collecting and production, they are still a good choice for players at low levels.
