8th Chaos Legion Airdrop Card Revealed
We are quickly approaching 8M Chaos Legion packs minted and that means it's time to announce a new airdrop card!
For the 8th Chaos Legion airdrop card, each pack purchased up until the 8M mark will have a 0.19% chance of receiving the card, which means that 1 in every 525 packs will receive the card on average. Additionally, players will be GUARANTEED to receive one of the cards for every 525 Chaos Legion packs purchased. Finally, each airdropped card received will have a 4% (or 1 out of 25) chance of being a Gold Foil version of the card.
The Carnage Titan is a massive, 11-mana Dragon splinter Legendary Monster who can deal out a bunch of damage as well as he can take it! His huge size gives him the Reach ability which allows him to use his Melee attack from the second position on the battlefield, and the Double Strike ability means he attacks twice each round. On top of that, his tough armor plating gives him the Shield ability which reduces the damage done from Melee and Ranged attacks!
He was called Holicrai the Magnificent and without doubt, he was the finest Gloridax guardian in the history of the land. He was as feared as some of the dragons that lived on Dragon’s Roost. The people of Draykh-Nahka would sing songs about him, and the ancient scholars would say that the sagas told about him didn’t do him justice. When he passed to the other side, they took his armor and displayed it in the Warrior’s Hall, deep within the Centrum. His bones were laid to rest in the Guardian’s Chapel on the far side of the city, a shrine open to the people so they might pay their respects for all he had done.
*It cost Morloth, the crazed tinker, not a single penny to acquire the armor. The Chaos Legion had brought it to him, together with a long, thick bone from the chapel’s tomb – probably the femur he guessed. He didn’t ask them how they’d come by it, and the strange man that conveyed the delivery was most peculiar indeed. He wore a long black coat and top hat, with a bizarre beaked mask and shimmering green amulet about his neck, carrying a lantern that pierced the night. He spoke to himself as much as he did to Morloth, and by the end of their conversation, the tinker wasn’t sure who he was more afraid of, the entire Chaos Legion that had descended upon the land, or this one strange man that was standing before him. *
Using the green crystals that he’d fuelled the Disintegrator with, Morloth set to work hammering away at the pieces of armor and fusing parts of the bone to the metal. Night passed into morning, as he sharpened its metal fingers into deadly claws, each one as long as his forearm. Then daylight came and went, the cycle repeating until he had lost complete track of time. He took sips of water from the various flasks that littered his workshop, and when the paltry reserves of food ran out, he chewed upon the green crystals themselves, sucking the energy from them. Partway through his labors, Morloth had to drag his creation from the workshop and set a canvas tent outside to continue, so big was the masterpiece. When it was time to attach the head, he rolled the lump of metal across the ground and fused it to the shoulders. Finally, he started work on the impressive helm that would conceal the giant green crystal that fuelled the creation’s mind and body.
When finished, Morloth collapsed in a state of complete exhaustion. He awoke later to find that his creation was gone. The terrible Carnage Titan had come to life and left him whilst he slept. He never did learn where his golem had gone, but then, nor did he discover how fortunate he was that it didn’t tear him to pieces before it left.
Get in on the Airdrop
As of the time of writing, there are still over 400,000 Chaos Legion packs remaining to be sold before the cut off for getting a chance at the Carnage Titan airdrop - so make sure to get your packs in the Splinterlands Shop before they run out! Each pack purchased will also have a chance of receiving all 6 additional airdrop cards to be released each time another 1M packs are sold over the life of the set.
Additional Game Updates
There are also a couple of other game updates that are currently planned to be released on Tuesday, March 1st, 2022...
Chaos Legion Brawl Update
Chaos Legion has entered the arena! The following changes will soon be implemented for all brawls:
- There will no longer be “Untamed Only” frays. These will be replaced with “Chaos Legion Only” frays.
- There will no longer be “Untamed + Dice Only” frays. These will be replaced with “Untamed + Dice + Chaos Legion Only” frays.
As mentioned above, this is planned to go live on Tuesday, March 1st, 2022 after the results phase of the previous brawl.
Max Mana Cap Increase
Now that there are many more high mana cost cards in the game (including the new Carnage Titan!) the maximum mana cap for battles (not counting 99 mana cap battles) will be increased from 50 to 60. This will also increase the general probability of having a high mana cap battle as compared to a low mana cap battle. We hope that players will enjoy being able to utilize more of those big, beefy cards in their battles - but be sure to watch out for the Giant Killer ability!
Stay tuned for more updates from the Splinterlands!
NOTE: All rewards from this post will be burned.
