The Last Haven 2.0

Published: Category:Dev BlogWritten by: bruno

Hello mighty heroes,

it’s december already! And as you know, The Last Spell won’t be released in 2020, unfortunately.

However, you folks have been so supportive of us this year, we wanted to give you a little something before the holidays 🙂

This summer, we released our little discord mini-game, The Last Haven. And you seemed to like it a lot. However, after a while, some of you managed to “finish” the game, and our poor Discord bot couldn’t keep up anymore.

So Matt revamped our little bot, and… kinda went all-in with the features!

Now, we’re happy to introduce you to The Last Haven version 2.0!

So, if you like what you’re seeing, come and join our Discord server to help our warriors!

The Last Haven 2.0

  • New RPG system: 7 abilities to train at each level, with effects on gameplay.
  • Abilities have impact on skills bonuses. Try to find synergies!
  • Reset system: each time your reset your hero, your start with accumulated bonus points to starting abilities.

  • You can target a specific group of Elite by typing: !attack enemyName
