New crafting techniques have been discovered in the Bit World, making it possible to craft mythic runes! The first 3 runes will be added to the game tomorrow, February 13:
- Zyrk Mythic Rune
- Tol Mythic Rune
- Vend Mythic Rune
How do we obtain them?
These runes can be obtained in the crafting menu by trading 4 different items: a primary mythic material which drops from Trials & Gauntlets, a legendary material that will come from legendary rune exchanges, rune shards, and gold.
Mythic runes are directly craftable.
Mythic Runes will have individual recipes in the crafting menu-- you get to pick which item you’re trading for, so you’ll always know which mythic rune you’re going to get!
Are you adding more mythic runes?
Yes, but the townsfolk need time to discover them and ensure they’re safe for use! New mythic runes will be added slowly, with just a few added each time.
Mythic runes will have a higher value on effects that already exist in runes of a lower rarity. We do not currently plan to add new skills/effects in mythic runes, but our goal is to eventually have a mythic version of each existing rune.
Mythic Augments, Enchants, and more
It won’t be long before the newly-discovered crafting techniques are applied to more than runes-- soon it will be possible to get mythic augments and enchants as well! Just like the mythic runes, mythic augments will be directly craftable, added slowly and in small quantities over time.
In the future, mythic rarity pets, mounts, and accessories will also be possible in the Bit World!
New NPCs are coming to town!
In a few weeks, you’ll see new NPCs in town. These NPCs are masters of mythics-- visit them for all your mythic rune, augment, and enchant needs! This will keep the original crafting menu from getting overcrowded with the new rune-specific recipes.
Back by Popular Demand: Previous WB, Invasions and Expeditions!
Adventurers have been asking for a second chance, a new approach, or a different take on previous content, and we’re preparing to make that happen!
Orlag (the first World Boss!)
New year, new boss-- Orlag is returning with uptiered stats and new equipment to collect! It’ll be worth it to try this encounter, even if you’re in the current tier.
Boss fights will not include elemental effects, but we may see elemental effects on some of the new gear.
Invasions & Expeditions
Ninja, Popoz, Battle Bards, Jelly, and more-- previous invasions and expeditions are going to be held once more for players to enjoy & conquer! The first one that will get an update is the Ninja Invasion, which will be uptiered to the current tier and contain new gear to collect.
Unity Port & IronSource Update
Many players have asked us ‘What will happen to Bit Heroes when Flash support has ended?’ The answer is: we’re porting Bit Heroes into Unity.
The Unity port is a hefty undertaking; taking a lot of time, focus, and testing for a smooth implementation in the coming months. Unity makes it possible to keep Bit Heroes up and running well after Flash support has ended, which we plan to do! Additionally, we are making some changes with IronSource, the company that provides in-game ads for free boosts, items, etc.
The Unity port and IronSource updates will make great things possible in the later half of this year. Unity will make it possible to add certain features we previously could not as well as integrate quality of life updates, create new art, and make UI improvements on a much more efficient timeline. We should also see big improvements to game performance, especially with animations.
An updated IronSource SDK will mean fewer ad crashes, more relevant ads, and hopefully an improvement for people in areas that sometimes ‘run out’ of available ads for their language or region. The IronSource update will also make it possible for us to improve the ad experience as a whole, making it more valuable and rewarding.
Other improvements & updates
- New cosmetics!
- Improvements to the crafting table (ie: mass exchanges)
- Buffs to Trials & Gauntlet Set
