Well, half of this is live for now as there are now systems in place for towers to go all the way up to level 40! The rest of the updates are due between September 13th – September 16th, and if we know PG at all we would expect it to be closer to the 16th!
At the time of writing, totems, fire turrets and ice turrets are still limited to level 35. Also, new builder hut levels, storage hut levels and farms/mills also get a few more levels to 29.
The most exciting new features of 2.50 though are the introduction of new dragons in a tier called Sapphire tier. These come complete with a number of special abilities exclusive to Sapphire, but what is new is a new level of dragon – The Mythic Dragon.
Sapphire tier will include 2 Legendary Hunters, 2 Legendary Sorcerers and 2 Legendary Warriors, plus a single Mythic Warrior.
2 more Sapphire tier dragons are in the works, with an unknown release date.
This dragons will feature a unique, complex spell set and new mechanics: One passive, one conditional, one defensive, and one offensive ability.
His normal attack as well as his defensive and offensive abilities allow him to build up a resource called Solar Energy. When Solar Energy is full, he can activate his Radiance Ability.
Activating Radiance transforms this dragon into his upgraded form with empowered abilities for the remainder of the battle.
The information we got was unclear, but these are the new Mythic Abilities:
Nocturnal Fissure: Opens a swirling vortex in front of him for 2 seconds which destroys projectiles and channels a portion of that damage to health to himself.
Crumble to Dust: Turns the earth at the base of the island’s towers into swirling sand that creeps up the sides of each tower. Affected towers deal reduced damage and take increased damage.
