New Combat Abilities!

In order to help combat the ever-growing threat within the Clockworks, all Knights can now use two powerful abilities: the evasive dash and the stunning shield bash!

Dash allows you to dodge enemy attacks with a burst of speed and limited invulnerability. It can even be used in Lockdown for a whole new level of strategy!

Charge into battle using shield bash to damage, knock back, and stun your enemies!

Learn about these new abilities and more in the patch notes!

Great Gluttonous Gorgos!

A new fiend has been summoned from the Underworld to swell the ranks of the devilite workforce: the gluttonous gorgo! Gorgos are bulbous fiends who are constantly on the lookout for their next meal and have an appetite for mayhem that knows no bounds.

Gorgos will now appear alongside their devilite coworkers in any fiendish encounter within the Clockworks.

Invasion of the Mini Monsters!

A new class of monsters known as 'minis' now roams the Clockworks. Experienced knights shouldn't have much of a problem dealing with them, but beware, minis are prone to swarm in packs dozens strong.

- Dust bunnies: These beast-family minis are a hopping mad mess of fangs and fur. They are always hungry.

- Glop drops: The newest member of the slime family will slowly ooze their way toward their prey as a nasty blanket of spikes.

- Grave scarabs: These undead insects are always on the lookout for fresh corpses. Their limited flight signals their attacks.

Something Stirs in the Compounds...

A new set of random levels have been added to the Clockworks, known as the Compounds. The Compounds feature the remains of some sort of unknown facility, where more intelligent monsters await, harvesting resources or perhaps attempting to power up the derelict machinery. However, just outside the confines of the facilities, hordes of mini monsters await in the brush, waiting to strike.

The Compounds are unique in that they combine two monster families and only appear in Tier 2 and 3 of the Clockworks.

Currently, Compounds levels will only appear in the Arcade but will be added to some missions in future updates.
