I’ve been on the team since February and this has been arguably the most impressive update we’ve done since then in my eyes. There’s so much to cover here a single blog won’t really do it justice but if things hold to schedule we’ll be releasing this early next week so you won’t have to wait too long to see it all yourselves!
OUR NEXT EPIC GUILDIE: CLINT THE MAN!
Our second epic guildie is here along with a new campaign to unlock him! Both ClintTheMan and QueenOfDiamonds are moving to a new dedicated Campaign section for Epic Characters!
One major thing to note: Use up your Queen of Diamonds currency before the update (planned for Monday), The Epic Character unlock system is getting a rework and the older QoD currency will no longer be used. As an added bonus, players that have already completed the QoD event will be able to earn even more shards by replaying the new QoD campaign!
WEAPON QUEST UPDATED!
This has been a big quality of life improvement we’ve wanted to get to for awhile. Instead of having to repeat the same weapon quest each time you need a specific tier piece, you can now beat a tier specific mission ONE TIME for each class. You will still need the crafting materials and campaign energy to farm the mission but say goodbye to manually replaying the same mission a bunch of times!
ROSTER SCREEN OVERHAUL
It was a real joy to see the talented team of devs pulling this one together throughout the release. There was a ton of work that went into Roster Screen and the linking of characters and items throughout the game! Check out the grid view below!!!
MORE ART UPDATES!
In addition to our new Epic character, the art team has been busy updating some of our world art and bosses. This release the Forest worlds and the Treant Boss got the most love.
Why don’t you make like a tree… and get outta here!!

IMPROVING GOLD ECONOMY
We hear the feedback that the gold pinch later in the game is rough and we’ve got some a few items to address that. The first being more ways to earn gold (like the events mentioned above) but we also had a big tuning change…
Dan and Lisa are Slashing Prices!
Gold cost of training XP is being halved this release! While a bunch of us were in a feature review meeting talking about the high gold costs, Lisa and Dan made the call and checked it in while we were still in the meeting. So life moves fast here at Pizza Club haha.
