Dream Reactor released a new update for its free-to-play card game Spellweaver this week. Among other things, the update introduces new Foil Cards and tweaks the game’s tournament system. According to the developer, this is the biggest update since the release of Valiant Dawn.
Much like foil cards in the real world, the ones being introduced to Spellweaver add just a bit of glam to the game. Every pack has the potential to contain Foil Cards, but as with the real world, not every pack will have them. Those who want a bit more of a guarantee on getting one will have to pick up Premium Packs. These have double the chance of containing foils.
These shiny cards are craftable as well, but they do have a higher crafting cost. To craft a foil the cost increases to 25 Common, 15, Uncommon, 6 Rare, 4 Epic, 3 Heroic. In addition to a higher craft cost, they also have a higher unbind value.
To help players out with getting the foil collection started, Dream Ractor will be giving them foil card for all the cards they have obtained since the expansion’s release.
As for the tournament changes, Dream Reactor will now be offering more generous prizes. They’ve added more tournament types, increased the prize pools, and added two new bonus prizes.
In addition to these things the new update also introduces six new PvE Challenge opponents — all of them Rare. There are also four new Hard AI opponents.
As always, with an update, there are a variety of other additions and changes, which you can read about in the patch notes.
