Runes and New Special Event | Update 0.44.0

The holidays are coming, friends!

So let’s celebrate the beginning of this magical gift season with the release of Blood of Heroes update 0.44.0, going live on December 21.

For the first time ever in our game, we are introducing runes. Runes are special perks that give bonuses to heroes’ stats. Use runes to fine-tune your favorite characters, and kit them for your preferred playstyle. At the moment, there are nine different runes available in the game—from damage increase to boosting stamina regeneration. You can apply any rune you possess to any hero, so start experimenting and find your winning combination.

Also, starting on December 24, you can take part in our special Blood of Heroes event: Solstice. Solstice is a festive personal arena and lobby with holiday-inspired music. Solstice is also three unique quest chains with nice seasonal rewards for completing them:

  • Three days of Premium for Yule Feast (December 24 to January 7)
  • Winter’s Peak arena core for Rites of Winter (December 24 to December 31)
  • Frost Brothers graffiti for Blooded Snow (December 31 to January 7)

And of course, you will be additionally rewarded for completing midline quests in quest chains, so make sure to stop by the battlefields during the holiday season. Learn more about the event, and find the complete patch notes below. And come join the holiday battle as soon as Blood of Heroes 0.44.0 is available. See you there!


Runes give heroes additional bonuses and help them better adjust to various playstyles. There are nine runes in the current version, but only three are available by default:

— Increase maximum health
— Increase maximum stamina
— Reduce weapon ability cooldown

The remaining six runes can be earned in battles:

— Boost health regeneration
— Boost stamina recovery
— Increase damage resistance
— Reduce ultimate cooldown
— Increase maximum resilience
— Boost resilience recovery
