Wolfhound Warrior Tier Set

The First of Three Fantasy Hero Sets!

In Lore, one thing is always true: When you play the game of Chaos, you win or you die. There is no middle ground. But we choose to defy fate, and know you will want to, as well! The Wolfhound Warrior is the first of three new tiered sets paying homage to the Game of Thrones book and television series. In the coming months, the Dragon Emperor and Dark Warlock sets will follow, too.

Unlock all 11 items in the Wolfhound Warrior set with the 12 month upgrade package starting this Friday, April 18th, at 12:01 AM server time, or choose from the 6 month upgrade, 3 month upgrade, 5000 AdventureCoin, or 12000 AdventureCoin packages for selected items from the set!

The 12 month upgrade comes with all 11 of the following:

  • Dire Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • Deadly Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • The Wolves’ Fury Blade
  • Wolfhound Fangs Daggers
  • Wolfhound’s Pike
  • Wolfhound’s Crown
  • Glowing Wolf Crown
  • Shaggy Wolf Hair
  • Shaggy Wolf Beard
  • Wolfhound’s Pelt

6 month upgrade and 12k AC packages: 

  • Deadly Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • The Wolves’ Fury Blade
  • Wolfhound Fangs Daggers
  • Wolfhound’s Pelt
  • Wolfhound’s Crown
  • Glowing Wolf Crown

3 month upgrade and 5k AC packages: 

  • Wolfhound Warrior Armor
  • The Wolves’ Fury Blade
  • Wolfhound’s Pelt
  • Shaggy Wolf Hair
  • Shaggy Wolf Beard

NEW: Special Package Pass!

We have been getting a lot of emails and tweets from players who are maxed out on ACs, have years worth of membership, or simply want to buy the gear that comes with our special packages. In response to that request, we are trying a new package: the special package pass.

Buying a special package pass for $60 USD will unlock ALL of the gear from the Wolfhound Warrior AND the other two packages in the series once they are released. Once those packages go live in the near future, anyone who bought the pass would automatically get them in their badge shop in the book of Lore.

You would have to buy 3 years worth of membership to get all of this gear with the set-up above, but if you're a gear collector (or just a HUGE Game of Thrones fan, like me... #TeamTyrion) or maxed out on upgrades, then this is going to be the way you want to go.

Tower of Doom Dungeon Crawl

Can you fight your way to the top?

Monster Hunter Zoshi has found the mother lode - a giant tower filled with every kind of monster imaginable! This Friday, battle your way to the top - and the bottom! - of this colossal column to prove to the world that you are a champion monster hunter!


Doomie, doomie, doomie!

When you enter the tower, you'll be able to climb your way to the top - or tunnel far into the ground to the bottom - for a pair of ultra-disgusting, high-level boss fights. As you fight your way toward them, you'll encountertons of different monster types, and even old bosses from your past.

Hunt for the Eternity Blade

Players level 30 and up will also be able to accept a quest for the fabled Eternity Blade. Anyone who manages to obtain this very special sword will be entered into a really awesome contest - we'll be posting the details about this later!

  • Design notes about the Wolfhound Warrior tiered special package* will be coming tomorrow!
  • We'll also be talking about the new Special Package Pass!

* Earlier DNs said this was a Class, but that was an error. It is an armor set with 3 variants.

Save the Princess

Battle-testing in Breakstone's New Tutorial

The quest to create a new and improved tutorial continues! Earlier this week, we released the first version of our new Breakstone tutorial for you guys so we could hear your thoughts. We need you to help us make the tutorial as easy to understand, helpful, and engaging for new players as possible! 

Thank you for helping us test!

We've made a lot of changes based on your feedback, including:

  • Have Zorbak mention blue arrows pointing to clickies
  • Add “A Hero is Born” achievement for completing tutorial
  • Add a Cape and a Helm to Zorbak’s shop to showcase shops
  • Change info text to “Double click a monster to begin attacking”
  • Give Galanoth better directional text
  • Rework Zorbak's quest
  • Explain story better (bring back part where Princess explains Ring of Dragon Control)
  • Change Enhancement shop

That is not all of the changes you suggested that we are going to make, though! We've got a running list, and we will keep adding improvements.

How-To Cutscenes Added

One of the best pieces of feedback we received over the last couple days was that you REALLY want knew players to learn how to chat, use the interface, and learn how to report people breaking the rules. We agree!

Yara explains the User Interface

After you finish the last battle, walk past Artix and Robina onto the Slime Road. You'll meet Yara the Paladin. She's got some helpful tutorial cutscenes for you to watch:

  • How to chat
  • How to use the User Interface
  • How to report other users
  • Links to the Design Notes
  • A list of game commands

We are also planning to add how-to tutorial cutscenes for the following:

  • How to use the Enhancement system
  • How to use the Book of Lore
  • How to use shops and your bank

Do you like these tutorial cutscenes? Would you like to see us do more? If so, let us know! These cutscenes will also be added to Battleon AND in the Book of Lore, as well.

High-Level Boss Battles in Breakstone

We REALLY appreciate that you guys are helping us test... but we know that most of you are higher than level 3-6. That's why we added high level versions of the Dread Dragon. If you are a high-enough level, you'll see a button to take you to level 30, 45, or 60 versions of the boss. 

Each version drops exclusive items: the Mystical or Warriors' Beast Master armor and helms!
