A new update has landed for the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes that has added a brand new set of high level content and a new Legendary Water Defense Skylander Thumpback.

The "Black Dimension" is unlocked for players who have beaten the existing campaign on Hard mode and sees you face off against increasingly powerful "Shadow" versions of the bosses to earn a new type of evolution currency. That currency can then be used to evolve your level 80 Skylanders in order to reach the new max level 100.

Thumpback will be available through his specific Pickup Summon from tomorrow.

Season 3, "Battle of the Dragons", of the Crash Bandicoot mobile game Crash On the Run! is about to begin with some new bosses from the Spyro universe: Dark Spyro and Gnasty Gnorc. You'll apparently also be able to get your hands on new Spyro themed costumes for Crash and Coco.

And in other mobile game news, Skylanders Ring of Heroes will update later on today to bring back Shadow King Pen, welcome a new Portal Master called Adriana, and add a new "Relations System".

Today's update to the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes brought with it the Swap Force character Free Ranger as a legendary rarity, attack type Skylander and a new Guild Battle feature to give guilds something to do together.

[User Posted Image]

Guild Battles see you placing teams of Skylanders to defend your guild's base from another guild's attacks while you also attack their teams in an attempt to destroy their base. For the full complicated details check out the guide that was posted.

Guild Battles are in beta at the moment so the results won't actually affect the rewards your guild gets until June.

Free Ranger is at the moment available exclusively through his Pickup Summon event "Great Storm Tracker". Each summon attempt costs either 1 Pickup Summon Ticket or 120 Gems. If you manage to make 120 unsuccessful summon attempts you get a guaranteed summon ticket for him. He is not available through any of the other summon types.

Other changes to the game include various buffs for existing Skylanders, a new elemental ore power up system for level 80 Skylanders, changes to the AI for auto battling, a way to downgrade and extract skill stones from upgraded skills, and various other improvements and fixes. See them all in the patch notes.

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

[User Posted Image]

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.

Today's update for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes added two new Skylanders: Smash Hit from SuperChargers and Scratch from Swap Force.

[User Posted Image]

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.

[User Posted Image]

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.

[User Posted Image]

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.

[User Posted Image]
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.

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.

The fifth and sixth post launch additions to the lineup of Skylanders in the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes were released today, they were the Undead element Chop Chop and the Light element Spotlight. Unlike the previous additions they were not accompanied by an episode dungeon, so you'll just have to unlock them both the regular way: through sheer random luck when summoning.

[User Posted Image]

The full patch notes give more details about the many other changes to the game that 1.0.12 has brought with it. Most notable are the changes to how you earn Soul Stones, the game has removed the ability to earn them through Adventures and has instead greatly boosted how many are given to you when summoning. Naturally this has meant a lot of changes to the rewards for activities throughout the game, with most being reduced or switched to make it harder to earn a summon than ever before.

Anyone who has finished powering up a Skylander and found themselves with excess Soul Stones will be interested to hear that there is now a way to convert them into "Soul Stone Shards" which can then be combined into an "Element Ticket" which is then used to summon either 200 Heroic or 100 Legendary Soul Stones for a random Skylander of your chosen element. Of course this has an incredibly low exchange rate considering it requires 12,000 Shards for one ticket.

Today's update for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has brought with it a brand new mode: Guild War. If your guild has 10 or more members you can take part in daily battles against members of another guild, rewards for competing include guild points and wish stones as well as gems at the end of each season. You can find all the details on how to get battling by reading the official Guild War Guide.

[User Posted Image]

The patch also brings a few changes to several Light and Dark Skylanders and lots of initial cooldown changes which may mean you'll want to change up your start of battle strategy.

Meditating Woodland has returned to a useful EXP amount, the active Skylander EXP is slightly lower than it was originally but spectators in the Woodland now get the same EXP as the active Skylanders.

And the Magic Shop has gained two more purchasable slots, it now also sells Runes and the stock can be refreshed with Gems.

As usual check out the full patch notes for all the details.

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!

[User Posted Image]

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.
