Heroes of Steel v4.2.77: Improving UI + Hovers + Patches
This week hits a bunch of areas across the game -- we're improving the UI in a new round, upgrading hovers with more data, fixing quality of life snags, and clearing some bugs from the table before the story content release.
This week, we've rebuild the waystation and campsite interfaces. They're faster to use, require no toggling between heroes, and show off the game's art better. Enjoy!
Hovers on the map for both enemies and heroes now include all buffs and curses. They also include the duration of those buffs and curses once they drop to 3 or below, so you can easily look over the enemy forces, or your own heroes for missing effects or ones that are about to expire.
We fixed a bug that was causing monsters to sometimes have double their buffs when the game was opened from the main menu into a pre-existing combat. Rare, but important fix!
Finally, we fixed an issue that causing havoc with elemental res and causing magical weapons not to have their Res set properly.
We also clarified a rule in the leveling screens -- if you are using dual wielding blades, you do not get the Strength bonus to Damage for them, even if your primary weapon is Strength-based.
