Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] September 23rd – Changes to Remy

Children of the night,

we know it is very unpleasant to nerf premium cards, but Remy is, now that players have cleave, in such a position that he dominates every other lord in the game. That is why we have no choice but to adjust him a little bit:

He now only has 11 health and Curse 1. We will refund 60 Blood Diamonds to each player who has Remy in his inventory.

I want to assure you that we won’t touch premium cards unless it is absolutely necessary.

We also adjusted the level 45+ lords. All other changes can be seen as usually in the database.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] September 22nd – Locations and connected abilities

Children of the night,

there is a new card type called locations. You play locations as any other card. However, only one location can be in play. If you want to get rid of your opponent’s location you have to play one yourself. If you want to play a second location then the first one will be discarded.

Locations drop from epic and raid bosses.

Some cards have received new abilities that only work if a specific card is in play under your control. For example, skeletons get stronger if you have a graveyard in play, and zombie rockers gain shatter if your lord is Damien Reese.

The Blood Dimaond costs for energy upgrade III – V have been significantly reduced. Blackout now affects flying, and creatures have to be active in order to proc their on-leaving-play abilities (e.g. Armageddon angel). You can see all other changes in the database.

Halloween is slowly approaching which will see the return of the Field of the Dead and a lot of new rewards for new ana veteran players.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] September 8th - Darkcrawler raid

Children of the night,

the new darkcrawler raid id now available. Defeat the new 3 epic bosses and get new darkcrawler loot cards.

Now players can defeat a raid boss 13 times instead of just 10 times!

You can see all other card changes in the databse as usual.

If your server has Dust Devil Desert unlocked then you can buy the Firestorm Phoenix for 2000 Blood Badges.

The next big thing is the location and then again some wild ideas.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] September 3rd – 30/5 rule

Children of the night,

on our quest to constantly improving Nightbanes we have come with a new rule: Your deck now consists of 30 cards and players hold 5 cards in their hand.

This means you have to change your decks now, but that shouldn’t be a problem.

Next will be the darkcrawler raid next week and then region 8 with a lot of techno machines. After that we have a wild idea about a new card type!

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] August 4th – R7 – Dust Devil Desert

Children of the night.

are you brave enough to leave the sahdows of the city and uncover the secrets that lie behind the mists of the Dust Devil Desert.

Dust Devil Desert is the seventh region in Nightbanes and as usual you can do new quests and one epic quest there, and earn many new cards.

The theme of the desert is influenced by Egypt, so expect pharaohs und mummies there.

There are new abilities that allow a creature to change its position on the battlefield, adding a new layer of strategy.

Furthermore there is a new booster pack and new premium cards. The Toxicity booster now costs 10 blood rubies, and the Oldtown booster costs 4000 blood pearls. Toxicity cards are now available at the Single Card Shop.

Oh, and 30 blood rubies for everyone! :)

Next will be a new raid, the darkcrawler caverns.

See you then

Children of the night,

PvP season 4 begins today. As usual your ELO will be reset and season 3 cards are gone.

Next will be region 7, the „Dust devil desert“.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] June 16th – Return to the field of the dead

Children of the night, the field of the dead has opened its gates once again. You can work on the scourges there if you have missed the first event. There are new loot cards to be found, so veterans also have something to do.

The 4 premium cards such as Cataclysm Mage are back and they have been buffed. Also there are 4 brand-new premium cards.

Many cards have been buffed and added. You can see an overview in the database:
http://db.nightbanes.com/

During the event cards from Harvest Moon will be available in the single card shop.

All players receive 30 blood rubies

And another great thing: During the event you will get +10% blood diamonds on all deals

After that we are approaching PvP season 4.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] June 4th - New legendary rule

Children of the night,

Starting today we have a new rule for legendary cards: You can now only include one legendary card per deck. Since there will me more phoenixes in the future we don’t want every deck to contain 6+ phoenixes.

This is another way to balance the power of the phoenixes, to encourgae more theme decks (e.g. Venom Phoenix fits nicely into a toxic-based deck), and to make it easier for new players to catch up.

The following cards are now legendary:
All phoenixes, Staff of the warlock Queen, and the Necronomicon

See you

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] June 2nd - Region 6 and a LOT of changes are live now

Children of the night,

we bring you the infernal planes. Enter the realm of the three sisters and fight demons and fiery creatures as well as other monstrosities there.

But the now sixth region is not everything we have added:

Our deals are more attractive now, you get more blood diamonds for a much more favourable price. The cap for blood rubies has been increased to 40, and old boosters now only cost 10 blood rubies. Speaking of blood rubies: You will get 60 ones for free. This allows you to get one of the two new booster packs „Hell of Earth“ and „Portals“ immediately.

There are 4 new premium cards, and some older ones have been buffed: Childe, Gargoyle, Mystic maelstorm, Spellbinder bow, Netherwrath robe and Estake.

For the first time we are offering preconstructed theme decks, a vampire and werewolf deck which include a few classic cards.

Insane Clown and Psyco Clown can now wear armor. Signet of the archon now only has a chance to incite. Swamp Lord, Vermin Lord, and Nightshades are now stronger. Harbinger Drake and Blood Demon’s Blackout is now only a chance.

There are new evolution cards (Lady Iceheart, Masterful assassin’s blade, and Doctor Blood) as well as new PvP rewards: Starstorm, Shockwave, Lizzy Licious, and Black Dragonspear. Furthermore we are giving you 7 new evolutions of vampire lord cards!

Three points of energy now regenerate every 80 seconds (previously 90 seconds).

We have a new facebook page for Nightbanes, so please disregard the old one:
https://www.facebook.com/nightbanesint

We have a surprise planned for you in the middle of June and then we are approaching PvP season 4 and region 7, the dust devil desert.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev May 6th - Phoenix changes

We also have buffed Lord of the Undead a little bit.

Blood Mage and Sister of Pain were supposed to counter phoenixes which isn’t working anymore. So we changed them to annoy dragons and xenos a little bit. :)

 
Flag Post

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev May 6th - Phoenix changes

HI all,

I admit that the phoenixes have been the most difficult cards to design. We wanted a strong card as a reward for high-ELO players that has a huge effect on gameplay and is also a bragging right.

Unfortunately over the time several phoenixes have become too dominant and there were problems that we didn’t foresee, e.g. Oblivion Queen’s reflect

So, once again phoenix are changed: Their leave-play effect and stats are stronger, but now they have a new proc called „Reshuffle“, which puts a creature back into the deck after it has died instead of into the graveyard. So phoenixes still have a way to come back.

On the other hand we have nerfed the Hive Overlord and Primordial Dragon a little bit.

In June you will get new weapons and most of them will be free! So if you cannot defeat the raid bosses right now be patient please!

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] May 5th - Raids are live

Children of the night,

now that you have organized yourself in guilds the time has come to face epic challenges:

You can travel to the first raid location called „Portals“ via the guild screen. This is a region that has portals in it which lead to other dimensions and locations: The red pastures, the crashed alien spaceship, the dark oblivion, and the realm of he dragons.

To take part in a raid you have to be at least level 10 and be in a guild.

A raid boss has 100 health. If you win a battle against him he will lose one point. A single player can cause a maximum damage of 10 points, meaning you need e.g. 10 players who deal 10 damage, 20 players who deal 5 damage or any other combination. As usual this is an internal guild affair.
If you have the defeated the first boss you can go to the next one and so on until you arrive at the final boss.

There are two kinds of loot: Individual loot, which a player can receive if lucky after winning a battle. Raid loot is for the whole guild after a boss has been defeated. Guild loot is determined randomly and individually. Only players who have caused at least 3 points of damage can collect guild loot.

There is a new faction called „The dimensional drifters“ where you can earn faction cards.. Furthermore you will receive Blood Rubies for defeating a raid boss.

Raids will be reset every Monday at 12pm GMT +1.

At the guild menu is a ranking system for guilds. Each defeated boss awards 1 points and the final boss awards 2 points.

We think that the bosses are tough, but they are epic bosses after all. We want you to build special decks for them and design strategies with your guildmates.W

At the beginning of June the sixth region will be released and then we have a few surprises for you.

Until then!

We also added some quests for body mods in older region.

The epic and coven bosses will come later since we think you will have a lot to do in r13.

Topic: Nightbanes / [Dev] April 14th – Guilds and Card Collections

Children of the night,

guilds are finally here. We define a guild as a group of players that will master some challenges together. The first one will be a raid location called „portals“, which will come later. We want to give you time to organize yourselves in guilds first, so that everybody has the some starting point.

On the main menu is a new icon, a skull. Click on it and you will enter the guild screen.

There you have two tabs, „raids“ to manage raids, and „guild list“. On the „raid“ screen you can either go to your guild page, or create your own guild, and later go raiding. „Guild list“ shows all guilds. You can apply to them on that screen. One sorting option is to sort them by „raid points“, which will be the guilding ranking system.

Guild sizes: The maximum number of members can be 20. We want many guilds and not a few big ones. Later raids will require 10 players. In reality you don’t have that many people who always have time. However, if you have too many members you must make adjustments. How many members you accept is up to you. And of course, we won’t interfere with anything that happens in a guild.

Deck collection:
The second new icon on the menu are the „squares“. There you can sort your cards by sets. All cards in a set are displayed, and the ones you own are in colour whereas the ones you don’t own are faded out. This is for collectors who wanted an overview. Only card sets from boosters are available since sets like „premium“ and so on are never really completed.

Next will be the actual raids and then then region 6, „the infernal planes“.

PvP season 3 has started, meaning that all your ELO rating has been reset.

All ELO reward cards have been changed, meaning that the old ELO cards are gone for the time being. The blood badge reward cards have been unchanged.

A new evolution card has been introduced, the „Lycan darkmaster“.
Next will be the implementation of the guild system and the release of the 6th region, the „infernal planes“!

Topic: Chronicles of Blood / [Dev] Blood Moon Arising 5 has begun

Children of the night,

It is the time of year when you can return to the Fields of the Dead and to the House of the Seven Sins.

At the Western and Eastern field you can find Spider Egss which summon a new epic boss in the Eastern field. This boss has of course new drops, one that can be used for body modifications.

Yes, body modifactions! Here an explanation of what they do:

Body modifications come in 3 main types external, head and internal. Players should note that tokens are required, and these are obtained by doing legacy quests which can be found in various game regions (with the exception of the frozen breath token and pvp + some are pvb loot). Legacy quests can be done even with an active PvE quest. Once the token is aquired the body shaper at Club Noir will then craft the modification. Pvpers should check the battle master for starting with pvp body modifications. Donors should take note that „Seal of the archon“ is required to unlock internal body modifications. Also there are „Joker tokens“ which can be used as any token required for crafting a body mod.
Once modifications are required it should be noted that there is a 2hour cool down in terms of switching between different modifications of the same area, and a cost of 75 sapphires
More modifications to come in the future

During the event players will receive double Victory Points, and donators get +20% Blood Diamonds on all donations. Also check out the new Shadow Phoenix and Black Widow servant.

Next will be the opening of R13, the „Secret laboratory“ in which the minions of Cyberlabs are conducting weird experiments and perform dark blood magic rituals.

Thank you and have fun!
