Version 4.1.37 has just arrived on the App Store with a ton of improvements for the game, and especially for the loot tables and Strength-focused characters!

The latest update brings about a positive upgrade for any character who wields a Strength-based melee weapon. Your hero's Strength attribute now helps bolster you damage by setting the minimum Damage that can be rolled. If your weapon does 21-40 Damage, then a D20 is rolled to determine the final Damage. If you are wielding a weapon that relies on Strength for its Accuracy, and you have 8 Strength, then if the D20 rolls less than 8, the Damage is simply upgraded to 8. The same size dice (D20) is being rolled, so your change of getting an 8 (the minimum Damage) is, in this case, 8/20 or 40%.

As your raise your Strength, you can therefore increase the minimum Damage you cause with every melee attack.

Even better, if you are wielding a 2-H weapon (Vraes, Fyona), the minimum is 150% of your Strength, and therefore 8 Strength gives a minimum of 12.

Please Leave a 5 Star Rating if you enjoy this game!

v4.1.37
- Strength attribute sets minimum for Damage roll for Strength-based weapons
- For 1-H Strength-based weapons, minimum Damage roll is 100% Strength
- For 2-H Strength-based weapons, minimum Damage roll is 150% Strength
- Strength minimum Damage roll does not apply to Dual Wielding
- Can now select and inspect Talents disabled due to lack of AP
- Fixed issue with Parry display in status, some shops listing odd shields
- Fixed Respec for all characters in Steam
- Added 40 new enchanted gear to Episode 1 Act 2 loot tables
- Added 40 new enchanted gear to Episode 2 loot tables
- Improved bonuses of Episode 1 Act 1 story rewards
- Added SP Drain to summary screen, fixed SP Drain bug with Dual Wield
- Kincaid's Darting Steel goes AoE after level 5, can throw knives at 1 range
- Fixed issues with Ranged Accuracy display and Range for Tamilin's knives
- Revised and improved Tamilin's art

The world of Steel trembles as the Harbingers ride to battle once again! Episode 4 has received a major expansion today, opening up 3 new story arcs and moving the main story forward another stride toward the final climax.

The expansion has added over 15 new types of monsters and some major new bosses. Their lairs and the expanse of the Underdeep includes 11 new dungeons, and one new town. On top of the new advesaries, there are hundreds of new pieces of weapons, armor and gear to kit out your groups in, and you'll find some of the mightiest items you've seen yet. Even more, if you are playing Kincaid, Vraes, or Fyona, you have the chance to encounter your hero's legendary item and unique story content.

We've also fixed a host of bugs, including a nasty bug that was making mouse hovers go berserk on some desktops.

Please leave a review to help encourage more updates, improvements and content

v4.2.1 - 2/9/2015
- Major Episdoe 4 Expansion Pack!
- Start new story arc by visiting Tevensa, Erghanna, Kea or Tyrae
- Start new story arc at the Brunehorn docks; go to the Darkmoss
- Storm Bastion back gate is now opened; visit Ancient Monastery
- Added 11 new dungeons / regions and 1 new town
- Added 15 new monster types and major bosses
- Added 100+ new epic weapons, armor and gear
- New Legendary Items story events for Vraes, Kincaid, Fyona
- Added display of Strength minimum Damage to talent detail box
- 6 Range Curses (Ethereal, Choking, etc) go to 7 Range at level 8
- Added Crag Peak as a permanent part of the road east to Granthorn
- Up-balanced the Heartbeats of Summer story item
- Improved keyboard arrow scrolling, improve hover over Talents list
- Improved sorting of Gear by level as well as type
- Fixed bugs with very high leaderboard scores
- Fixed desktop issue with hover breaking over talent list



If you have come out of the far side of the City of the Dead, then your ready to move forward on any of these new story arcs. First, you can visit Kea, Tyrae, the Druid Erghanna or Tevensa's alter to continue the main quest.

Also, if you have been to the Storm Bastion, then the defensive wards they have been working are now complete, and the back gate can be opened at last. The winding track up to the monastery awaits.

The Captains at the Brunehorn docks will also take you into the Darkmoss Swamps to visit the Druid Erghanna, regardless of which family you supported in the conflict over Ember. Heroes such as yourself would do well to talk to one of the Dhrogas, and you can kick off a new story arc by heading that way.

@syntheticvoid - excellent! Thank you

Sorry, I might have posted here too early ... it is waiting in review with Apple today. Hopefully that means within a few days it will be out for iOS.

Ha, was a little curious when I got hole from work and it still wasn't showing up for me. =oP

No worries... I'm totally psyched about it. Can't wait.
