We’ve all been there before. You’re doing a little cleaning to fix up your place and while checking between the couch cushions, what falls out? That’s right, runes left behind by the Ancients.

This is kind of what happens in update 2.0. Ash lets you know that, during the construction of a tower, a bunch of ancient runes were discovered. It’s officially rune time, everybody!

What are runes? In short, they’re glowing helpers that can strengthen your dragons and towers. There are two types (runes and glyphs) each with five possible rarity levels (common, rare, epic, legendary, mystic).

You can equip up to five runes to a specific dragon or tower. They grant different boosts such as Common Battle Cry, Rare Cloak, and Epic Trebuchet Resist. Once equipped, runes can only be unequipped by salvaging them for dust. Runes can be upgraded using this dust. Choose wisely!

If you missed our preview stream to see runes in action, catch these highlights for a brief walkthrough.


Here's a comic that we whipped up which hints at the runes' mysterious origins:

We’re really excited about these and hope you all will be too! Download update 2.0 to start playing with runes and leave your enemies in ruins!

Speaking of 2.0…

Events- Team Gauntlet

This weekend’s event will be Team Gauntlet! Battle your way across the ocean and liberate island chains from Gustav’s despotic rule!

Win prizes 3 ways:

  1. My Progression the more damage you deal to Gustav’s bases, the better the prizes
  2. My Rank based on damage dealt to bases
  3. Team Rank in division is based on Victory Points (VP)

How to Liberate an Island Chain

  • Each island chain has a lot of HP!
  • Attack it to destroy HP (and earn points) proportional to the towers you destroy
  • To earn more points:
    • Use Inner Fire spell boosts for +100% more HP destroyed each. Find these in The Armory!
    • Attack more challenging island chains
  • Attacks use energy, which regenerates over time
  • When an island chain runs out of HP, your team:
    • Wins VP (faster liberation → more VP)
    • Unlocks the next island chain (which is richer in both points and defenses!)
  • Gustav will eventually reconquer island chains.  Liberate it again to earn more points

PvP Islands

  • Islands belonging to an enemy team will randomly appear.  That team will also see an island belonging to your team!
    • Destroy it to earn a ton of VP
    • Destroy it before they destroy your island to steal 5% of their VP
