A Big Thank You for our Closed Beta Players

  • All players who participated in the closed beta will receive a thank you gift, primarily in the form of packs.

    • Everyone will receive a percentage of earned gold and packs in the form of packs, with a minimum of three packs.

    • Everyone will also receive 1 Forge ticket and 1 Draft ticket.

Steam Integration

Eternal Has Moved to Steam

  • You can now play Eternal on Steam!

  • Collect Steam achievements, trading cards, profile backgrounds and emoticons!

Features

The Store is now Open

  • You can now purchase Gems!

  • Your first Gem purchase will grant you 3 FREE packs from the current set and all future sets.

  • (The 32-pack boxe product guarantees at least 3 Legendary cards per box)

 

Multiple Clarity Improvements

  • Gauntlet, Forge and Draft now have a help button to provide additional information for how those systems work.

  • Relic Weapons and Killer attacks now provide a clearer indication of the units involved.

  • Theme deck quests are now more clear with improved messaging.

  • Packs now indicate how many Shiftstones you received when opening them.

  • Ranking up in a League now better explains your accomplishment.

  • The Shiftstone button in the navigation bar will no longer highlight when you have any extra cards. You must reach a threshold of 200 Shiftstones now. (You can still click it to destroy your extra cards regardless of your threshold.)

  • Quests that can only be completed in Versus Battle now have a special badge explaining the requirement.

Quest Updates

  • 13 new quests were added to the daily quest rotation.

  • Some existing quests have been updated with different requirements.

 

Economy Changes

The changes to the economy in this build are focused on three primary goals: 1) Make sure Eternal continues to be generously free to play. 2) Improvements for the new user experience 3) Shift gold rewards toward Silver and Gold chests to reduce the pain of poor runs in Forge/Draft and to boost the value of quests, easing the need to grind to earn gold.

 

  • The free copies of each Scion given during the Campaign can no longer be destroyed.

  • Multiple adjustments to Shiftstone rewards and values.

  • Gold adjustments to chests:

    • Gold received from Bronze chests has been slightly reduced.

    • Gold received from Silver and Gold chests has been slightly increased.

  • Ranked no longer rewards an extra Bronze chest after the third win.

  • End of season rewards have been redesigned. Rewards now come in the form of a pack + premium cards, depending on the rank achieved.

 

Deckbuilder

  • Maximum deck size has been reduced from 250 to 150.

  • Creating a side deck in deckbuilder has been disabled for the time being.
