War flags and Patterns

  • These appear as enhancements to hero battles.
  • War flags and patterns are available for special buffing effects and Stats increases.
  • One banner and three patterns can be used per team.
  • They are currently only available on the Mysterious Island.
  • Currently, they are only available in Guild Wars and Arenas. CoW and Guild Raids are not supported.
  • The official message suggests testing, but it is currently not supported in guild battles and Combat Training. On the day of implementation, in the given environment, War flags cannot be set even if Guild War are selected in Combat Training.
  • In English, it is called a “War Flag”, but internally it is referred to as a “Banner”. The terminology may vary depending on the language.
  • To be honest, at the current stage of its debut, there isn’t much difference whether it is present or not. In the end, it is likely to have its own significance.

Upgrade Patterns

Many of you have already strengthened your War Flags with various types of Patterns and increased the power of your team, but we have more to share — the upcoming December update will allow you to upgrade Patterns and add a new War Flag and Pattern to the Mysterious Island! 

  • You can level up a Pattern by combining it with a Pattern of the same Type (for example, an Armor Pattern with an Armor Pattern) and Level (there will be 7 levels of Patterns in the game: White, Green, Blue, Purple, Orange, Red, and Ultimate). As the Pattern level increases, the guaranteed boost to the Pattern attribute will also increase. 
  • For example, if the White Armor Pattern provides a 1% bonus, the Green one will provide a 2% bonus. 
  • In addition to a second Pattern of the same Type and Level, you will need a special Golden Thread to increase the level of a Pattern — a consumable that can be obtained by disassembling Patterns (the higher the Pattern level, the more Golden Thread you’ll get), as well as on the map of the Mysterious Island and through other means. 
  • The Ultimate level of a Pattern differs from the others: in addition to the guaranteed bonus from the Red level of a Pattern, you can add one random buff of the same attribute. For this, you won’t need a second Pattern of the same level (but you will need a new item — Golden Thread), and the number of attempts to add one buff is unlimited. 
  • For example, you may get +1% Armor to your Armor Pattern, but you might also get lucky and receive +3% to Armor buff, whereby if you get a less powerful Armor buff on a subsequent improving attempt, your Pattern will retain the more powerful buff. 

Note: Terms and info presented in this post might become subject to change! Also, don’t forget to claim the last batch of Explorer’s Moves — we have already sent them, check your mail and share your thoughts on upcoming update in the ⁠news-discussion channel!

More About War Flags

We have news about upcoming Battle Flags changes, here’s what awaits you:

  • On December 4th, a new adventure map will be available, where you will encounter a new flag and pattern with new abilities. Try to guess what they will be?
    UPDATE: The new adventure map will become available on December 7th, not December 4th. We apologize for the confusion.
  • A bit later, Pattern upgrades will become available! As we announced, Patterns will have 7 levels of progression, from white to ultimate. To upgrade a Pattern, you will need two Patterns of the same level plus a special resource — Golden Thread.
  • You can obtain Golden Thread by finding it on the adventure map, disassembling Patterns, or by other in-game activities. Please note that Patterns are disassembled irreversibly, and you will need to obtain them again.
  • White-level patterns can be extracted from Battle Flag with a small gold fee. Upgraded Patterns will require a certain price in emeralds.
  • You will also be able to use patterns not only in the Arena and Guild Wars but also in the Grand Arena and Clash of the Worlds!

Updata: December 07, 2023

We are here to share another batch of important news

  • Pattern Upgrading and Disassembly mechanics will also be added to the game later today. To level up a Pattern, you’ll need a second Pattern of the same Type and Level, as well as Golden Thread — a consumable that can be obtained by disassembling Patterns (the higher the Pattern level, the more Golden Thread you’ll get), as well as on the map of the Mysterious Island and through other means.
  • War Flags will become available in two more game modes: Grand Arena and Clash of Worlds!
  • New Seasonal Adventure map will open tomorrow, where you can find new War Flag and Pattern, as well as the War Flags and Patterns from the previous Mysterious Island map!
  • New War Flag will reduce the enemy team’s healing rate by 10%, and the new Pattern will decrease the Dodge rate of the opponent team’s Heroes.
  • Please note that your activated Explorer’s Moves subscription in the Seasonal Adventure hasn’t gone anywhere — you’ll be able to claim Moves for two days starting tomorrow and use them on the new map!
