Today's patch for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes brought with it two newly playable five star Skylanders: Drobot and Head Rush. As with the previous set of new Skylanders the update also brings a new Episode Dungeon, this one featuring Drobot. It'll only stick around until June 6th so don't dawdle if you want to earn all the rewards!

The update also makes some more changes to the arena system, the incredibly harsh reset introduced in the last update has been cut back to now only dropping you back one rank group rather than two. And earlier in the week a small update cut defense losses in half.

And you now have three entries per day for the Guild Invasion but the rewards have been reduced for each go. You also cannot use the Skylanders that were defeated in your previous runs from that day so you'll now need 9 strong Skylanders if you want to get the maximum rewards from it.

Check out the full patch notes for all the Skylander ability modifications and other assorted changes and bug fixes.

There's also an Easter event going on that gives you some extra bonuses every day and an arena event where you earn points to spend on soulstones. See the full notes for more details on those.

Guilds in the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes just got their first bit of actual content, Invasion!

[User Posted Image]

If you're in a guild then once a day you can take on a Dark Doom Raider in an attempt to inflict as much damage as you possibly can, the more damage you do before it defeats you the better your score and the better your reward.

Your individual score will then be combined with your fellow guild members' scores to give your guild a total score. That's used to compete against other guilds on your server with rewards given out at the end of each week based on your guild's ranking.

Today finally sees the global release of Skylanders: Ring of Heroes, check out the long list of countries that that includes as it misses plenty of places but they do continue to promise more regions will be added in the future. Or just hop on over to your local version of the App Store or Google Play Store to see if you can download it and get started playing.

The game has also seen a new patch that updated a fair few things like adding in the ability to have private realtime arena battles with your friends instead of just randomly selected opponents.

As they continue to prepare for a wider release, Skylanders: Ring of Heroes today updated to add a real time friendly arena mode that lets you fight against other randomly selected players. There's no ranking in this mode so no penalty for losing and there is not yet a way to battle a specific opponent but that is apparently on its way in a future update.

[User Posted Image]

They've also kicked off a couple of new events. The "Create Your 5* Dream Team" event asks you to use the Ultra Premium Summon (800 Gems) and they'll then give you a Legendary 5* Skylander (or 50 Soul Stones for it if you already own it) on the 3rd time, the 10th time, and the 20th time you use the summon. The event lasts 14 days but that's an awful lot of gems to spend....

[User Posted Image]

The second event they've started is "Hugo's Portal Master Mission Book" which is a lot more manageable and gives you smaller rewards for completing a variety of basic tasks. Every three you complete will get you a bunch of bonus gems. This one lasts until the beginning of April.


And there were also a whole slew of other changes as detailed in the full patch notes below:

Today a patch was released for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes that added a whole new type of dungeon to the game: the Cave of Gold.

[User Posted Image]

The Cave of Gold is a new source of coins giving you several thousand gold each time you successfully complete a floor, the catch being that you can only enter three times a day across its five floors so you'll have to be cautious not to venture too high for your Skylanders' abilities. You'll also first have to complete level 2-4 on Normal difficulty to unlock access to the dungeon.

It's still in a limited launch in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada but as it's rapidly approaching Christmas the brand new mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has started its first in-game event.

[User Posted Image]


Running until the 3rd of January this event simply requires you to complete three very basic daily missions and then spin a wheel to win a prize. There are extra bonuses for every five times you do that up to 30 times so with a limit of three spins per day it'll take at least ten days to earn the final reward of 800 Gems.

It doesn't look like there's anything exclusive to win, just in-game currency, so those not yet able to play won't miss out on too much.

Beta Test Participation Event Coupons

Anyone who took part in the beta earlier this year should check their emails for their coupon, make sure to check your spam folders as that's where it ended up for me. While it says it won't expire until the 30th of June 2019 your email provider might delete the message a lot sooner if it's left sitting in your spam folder unnoticed.

The official Facebook page for Skylanders Ring of Heroes has announced that the beta test for the upcoming mobile game is due to start in 3 days time (the 14th of June).

[User Posted Image]

Exact details of how to access the beta have not yet been made clear but it will only be available on Android, will last until the 22nd 25th of June and, according to the Korean webpage for the beta, taking part will get you a 750 Gem reward that can be used when the game officially launches a bit later in the year.

Over the past couple of weeks the Facebook page has been slowly revealing more of the "Awakened" forms of Skylanders so make sure to go check them out if you haven't already. From the looks of it the roster will be quite extensive so those reveals may be continuing for a while yet.
