The wait is almost over. After approximately four months since Duelyst’s official release date, their first expansion, Denizens of Shim’Zar, is finally arriving on August 30th! Denizens of Shim’Zar features 105 brand new minions and spells distributed across each faction.
The expansion will also introduce a new minion type, Battle Pets. Battle Pets are minions that act independently. In other words, they cannot be controlled by their player; however, their behavior should be fairly predictable. Full details on how Battle Pets will act have not been disclosed. Players will have to wait until August 30th to uncover the mystery themselves. To compensate for their unique trait, Battle Pets have stats/effects well worth their mana costs. “Z0R” is an example of a Battle Pet from the Denizens of Shim’Zar expansion:
Players can now pre-purchase 50 Denizens of Shim’Zar orbs for $49.99. Preordering the expansion’s orbs will also immediately unlock the new Shim’Zar card back.
Simply login to Duelyst and visit the Armory store to submit your preorder request today.
