Release Notes


Dear Humans and Elves,

We're planning to update our United States worlds to the latest version on Thursday, 20 February. This update will include a number of changes, which you can find detailed below:

New Features


  • Grab your Fellowship and earn Trophies in the Spire of Eternity! From the start of the Spire of Eternity on Sunday 1 March 8 March , Fellowship profiles will show 3 different types of Trophies: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Your Fellowship will receive the highest Trophy that it has unlocked each week after the Spire of Eternity closes its gates. These Trophies remain in the Fellowship profile permanently so that you can easily show everyone how well your Fellowship performed in the Spire of Eternity in the past! You'll need the following amounts of points for each of the trophies:
    • Gold Trophy - Fellowship gathered 1330 or more Spirit Essence
    • Silver Trophy - Fellowship gathered 520 or more Spirit Essence
    • Bronze Trophy - Fellowship gathered 110 or more Spirit Essence

Improvements


  • Many of the loading screen hints have been updated to be more accurate, and have added several new ones to also inform you about more recent changes made to the game. Keep an eye out for them!
  • Neighborly Help initiated from notifications or from within the Fellowship overview now works significantly faster for everyone! There is no more need to load the city of these players as you get to select the most valuable help options directly from this new menu. Neighborly Help initiated from the World Map still lets you explore a player's city first before you get to choose which option may be the best to pursue.

  • In the Ancient Wonder overview, it is now possible to directly substitute for missing Knowledge Points with Diamonds in case insufficient Knowledge Points are available to finish research into a new level. There is no more need to move out of this dialog to buy Knowledge Points from the top hud.

Balancing Changes


  • Analysis of the Frog Prince unit indicated that it was stronger than intended, which is why its Hitpoints and Damage were lowered by 8-9%.

Bug Fixes


As with every update, we've resolved a number of bugs, among which:
  • Enchantments - It is now possible to use the Ensorcelled Endowment Enchantment on the Gingerbread Mansion.
  • Buildings - Increased the size of some tooltips when selling a building, so that all information can be displayed correctly.

Mobile


Note: the app version of the update is released separately from the browser version.
  • The rankings overview was updated to now also show how players fare in the weekly Tournaments.
  • Information about Ancient Knowlege Instants has been extended to show more clearly how many Knowledge Points each of these Instants adds to an Ancient Wonder.
  • User Interface - Back button functionality is now available for all windows and menus in the game.
  • Buildings - The level of a building is no longer shown during construction, as it was confusing.
  • Buildings - Icon sizes in Manufactories no longer scale weirdly when switching through your idle Manufactories.
  • Spire of Eternity - "Fellowship Points" are now translated correctly.
  • Elvarian Carnival - Candy will now start appearing in your city even if you don't restart the app after switching to a different app and putting Elvenar into the background.
  • Rankings - Resolved an issue where the table headers in the Rankings window were not always aligned to the correct columns.
If you are curious and want to experience these changes before they are released, please feel free to register an account on our Beta server, where they get released several days in advance for technical testing.

We hope you like the changes we're bringing with this update. Please let us know your feedback to the changes by leaving a comment in the discussion thread!

Kind regards,
Your Elvenar Team

Dear Humans and Elves,

While we're making good progress testing the upcoming Trophies feature for the Spire of Eternity, we found that we need some more time to test this feature on Beta before we can activate it on all of our Live worlds. Therefore we decided to move the release date for that feature by one week, to become available for the Spire of Eternity that starts on 8 March 2020. The post above has been updated to also reflect this change.

We ask for your understanding!

Kind regards,
Your Elvenar Team
