Following his tease in last week's Episode Dungeon, Flameslinger is now available to own in Skylanders Ring of Heroes.

As usual since he's a Legendary he's only available to get through his special "Pickup Summon" event and for the time being is not available through the regular random summons. But thanks to some unscheduled maintenance today you get 30 free tries to get him.

Smash Hit is presented as a Legendary Skylander who specialises in Area of Effect attacks and Scratch is a Heroic Skylander who attacks multiple times.

As a new Legendary Skylander you will initially only be able to get Smash Hit from his special event summons but Scratch is immediately available through all the different summon types.

Just in time for Christmas, Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has released an update today that adds a couple of "new" Skylanders, Mysticat and Chopscotch, and the fourth Portal Master, Ryeo. And there's also a new Christmas themed wheel spinning event running for the new two weeks.

Mysticat and Chopscotch were in the game prior to the revamp and oddly missing at the relaunch but they're back now and ready to join your squad with their newly revamped abilities. Mysticat is only available to summon from the special Magic Sphinx Cat event summoning but you should be able to randomly summon Chopscotch from any of the summons.

Portal Master Ryeo is unlocked at Academy Level 15 and has the ability to increase your Skylanders' attack power. You can read the full notes over on Hive.

The long awaited complete overhaul of the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes has finally gone live today, bringing with it the new turn based combat system.

[User Posted Image]

The scale of the changes has meant that all progress has been reset, so you'll have to start building your teams all over again. If you played the game's previous version then you will receive a one time gem reward based on your Portal Master Level.

As part of the ongoing glimpses of the upcoming revamp to the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes the developers have released a first look at how the battle system will be modified.

The biggest change by far is that the real time battle system will be replaced, instead the game's battles will take place using a turn based system. It will still run on mana but you'll take turns choosing an attack instead of racing to get your attacks in the queue first.

Villains will no longer be a part of your team, instead teams will consist of four Skylanders and your Portal Master avatar.

Endurance will no longer automatically stun when it reaches zero, instead the Skylander/enemy's attack and defence will be lowered and they will become vulnerable to certain skills that can stun.

And nearly all of the Skylander skills will get some form of modification so you'll probably have to completely reassess which Skylanders you're going to be using.

The mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has been quiet for most of the year after announcing in February that they were going to revamp the game in some manner. Today they have shared some information on how the role of the Portal Master will be changed in this revamp.

Eugenie, George, Ryeo, and Bruno

Not only are they adding two new designs but they've given each of them a name and a backstory along with their own special abilities to use during battles which you will be able to level up to improve.

Quote:
When it comes to Portal Masters, Eugenie is a bookworm. She was most comfortable in the basement reading area of the library at her school. When Eugenie came through the Portal to Skylands, Master Eon recognized her strengths and allowed her full access to the Academy Library. Master Eon discovered that Eugenie possessed the ability to analyze the strengths of Skylanders, and utilize these strengths to benefit allies.

Eugenie uses her skills to buff the attack stat of Skylanders.


Quote:
When the weak are in need of help, George's strength shines through. When George arrived in Skylands, the powers in the land sensed his strong heart. George was gifted with this power, an ability suited to his strengths. George is now able to create a solid shield of earth and stone that can compete with any other shield in Skylands.

George uses protection skills to guard ally Skylanders.


Quote:
Ryeo has always had an interest and connection with fortune-telling, especially tarot cards. When she became a Portal Master, she was excited to learn about the future and to be gifted this ability through the powers of Skylands. Unfortunately for her, the only ability she received was to throw cards as she wished. Ryeo was disheartened, but Master Eon and Hugo gifted her special tarot cards that fit her powers and were suited for use in battle. After much practice, she is now able to throw the cards to block the enemies' sight.

Ryeo’s skills weaken her enemies.


Quote:
Bruno has spent so much time around clocks, he could almost control time itself. When Bruno enters the battle, he becomes a fearsome ruler of time. All Skylanders' skills require the consumption of mana and a cooldown time once they're used, but Bruno's watch makes this immutable rule disappear.

Bruno uses his skills to help in battle by controlling time.


No new information on a potential time frame for release was provided.

Thanks to panseit on the Skylanders: Ring of Heroes subreddit for spotting the post.

[User Posted Image]

Like last time the skin will be available for purchase in the Pit Stop, the Grand Prix runs from the 20th of February to the 22nd of March.

Although this is the last Grand Prix it may not necessarily be the last Spyro content for the game as there are plans to keep adding new characters and skins.

The seventh post launch playable Skylander addition to the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes has been released and it's the Life Sensei Boom Bloom!

Rounding out the Senseis from Imaginators you can earn enough soul stones to summon her through playing the brand new Episode Dungeon that has released alongside her, which is as usual only open for two weeks.

[User Posted Image]

You can read the full patch notes to get the full details but Boom Bloom and the Episode Dungeon are pretty much the entire patch.
