Update 1.2 - February 16, 2012

Postby admin » Thu Mar 15, 2012 5:58 pm

A mysterious elven scholar named Alador appears in the village of Glenfort following the defeat of Lord Helion seeking the final destination of the dark mage's scattered power. Track down the final vestiges of Helion's power and travel to the volcanic land of Dragonmoor to find the only one capable of containing this nefarious force once and for all!

Chapter 3: Dragonmoor adds an entirely new zone to the world of Book of Heroes, along with an extensive quest chain suitable for players between levels 15-17. In addition to conquering the fiery lands of Dragonmoor, you can explore Glenfort's hidden grottos in search of an ancient artifact lost to time, take on new Daily Quests, complete new Feats of Heroism, and indulge in our most-requested feature: multiple character support!

Even more changes have been made to Book of Heroes in this update, so read on for the in-depth patch notes!

Hopefully we can get back Hero Tokens as well. I just spent mine on two characters shortly before finding out about this update.
