MAGIC: PUZZLE QUEST 1.9.1 UPDATE IS HERE!

Posted on December 21st, 2016 / Arthur

Hey Everyone,

Here are the final release notes for the 1.9.1 patch that will be going live today!

New Features

Activity Hub Update: Widgets and messages have been improved.
Update to Coalition Events: Players must now be in a Coalition before the Event begins to contribute to the Coalition’s score.

New Event:

Inventor’s Fair

On this vibrant plane, aether powers thousands of brilliant inventions from clockwork automatons to massive airships. Genius inventors have come from all over the world to compete at the Inventors’ Fair. Who will most impress the mysterious Head Judge?

Face other players for control of the three shards of mana. Each event, one node is set aside for a specific Planeswalker, while the other nodes require a Planeswalker of the appropriate mana affinity. Once locked, each Planeswalker you use on that node will fight enemy Planeswalkers and decks crafted by real players. The more victories you earn and the more secondary objectives you complete, the more rewards you can earn. Reach the top brackets before the event ends and earn the best rewards.

In the first Inventor’s Fair, the Blue and White Node will be restricted to Dovin Baan. Players reaching the top of the leaderboard in Silver, Gold or Platinum Tiers will receive a limited-time exclusive Mythic card.

The optional objectives for the Inventor’s Fair are as follows:

Blue and White Node

Optional Objective 1: Energise 5 or more Gems during the match.

Optional Objective 2: Lose 2 or less creatures during a single fight.

Red Node

Optional Objective 1: Energise 5 or more Gems during the match.

Optional Objective 2: Take less than 15 damage during a single fight.

Green Node

Optional Objective 1: Energise 5 or more Gems during the match.

Optional Objective 2: Win the fight with 75 or more HP remaining.

Legacy Events:

Oath of the Gatewatch, Part I and Part II

The battle to save the plane of Zendikar rages on. Powerful Planeswalkers have fought on the side of the Zendikari against the all-consuming, alien Eldrazi.
Will the Planeswalkers stay at great personal risk and fight for Zendikar? Or will they retreat away to safety and leave the world to oblivion?

Back by popular demand, the Oath of the Gatewatch is returning to Magic the Gathering: Puzzle Quest. Keep an eye out for this legacy PvE event.

    Melding Creatures needs to be fixed so it works with Mirrorpool and Oath of the Overwatch. Both are excellent complementary cards to the melding ability but do not work with them. When Overwatch summons a two creatures that should meld they do not meld, also when the some a creature that should meld with one you already have out they do not meld. Mirrorpool doesn’t double the summon/reinforcement when summoning a creature into a melded card.
