    Test Server 2.8506 (all known card bugs fixed)

    Hey folks!

    Thanks to everyone reporting the card bugs they found over the past few months, we've been able to investigate and fix those bugs to get us to a point where all the KNOWN ones are gone. There could be more lurking, of course, but the known ones appear to be gone.

    As with all software, there's a period of testing we need to go through to ensure the fixes are good and haven't broken anything else. This is where you can help. Head over to test.shadowera.com and play some games (you will probably need to arrange Custom Matches) and then report any bugs you find here. I'll update below with any you find and then I will investigate and fix as many as I can.


    NEWLY FOUND BUGS IN 2.8506

    * Belladonna has arcane damage when it should be sword. (This has been in the game since forever and will have affected some arcane type cards.) FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Fleet-footed Messenger ALWAYS give back the card you put in deck if your deck has EXACTLY 3 cards. FIXED in 2.8507
    * Ghostmaker doesn't trigger twice if damage other than combat damage happened in combat. (Doesn't work with Violet Thunderstorm or Threbin.) FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Healing Touch owned by opponent but controlled by you should LEAVE attachments you control and REMOVE attachments opponent controls. FIXED in 2.8507
    * Holy Shield does not prevent an ally from being killed if it is killed by non-damage. FIXED in 2.8507 (Holy Shield temporarily grants ally minimum of 1HP while attached, since 0HP always means dead in Shadow Era.)
    * Lythian Sledgehammer effect not working on last durability. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Mimic to should exile its target card even if player chooses to cancel casting it. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Mimic is not properly checking target cards for whether they can be cast. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Raikka's fire damage for friendly allies only lasts until end of the turn. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Rod of Smiting is not showing attack icon correctly. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Shard of Power is causing allies in hand and in graveyard to display with 1HP. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * Twilight Champion will grow if you view and close the graveyard, based on number of Twilight allies in it. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * What Big Teeth is showing the attack value in a white box instead of a claw like the unzoomed attack icon. FIXED in 2.8507.
    * When Wulven Scout enters play without being summoned, you don't always get to see the opponent's hand that turn. It works correctly as of your next turn. CAN'T REPRODUCE (worked fine for me)
    * Xar Modulator returning Backstab or Silent Strike from graveyard draws a card. FIXED in 2.8507.

    KNOWN BUGS THAT ARE NOT CARD-RELATED:

    Other Misc Bugs:
    * TOURNAMENT SYSTEM IS BUGGED. DON'T USE. MIGHT CAUSE ISSUES IN GAMES AFTERWARDS.
    * Drag and drop capability still inconsistent
    * Disconnection from server bug. Details here
    * Gets logged out of game when receiving a call on mobile phone
    * Autocast bug still exists
    * Using a hero ability too quickly (possibly while animations are still in effect) could cause the player to lose the SE without the effect of the ability
    * Hard to see the top card of deck displayed because of meat wagon
    * Playing against AI still buggy
    * In Deckbuilder menu while building a deck doubleclick on a card disables the drag and drop feature to add cards, until you doubleclick again.
    * Game still gets stuck waiting
    * Unstable in IPhone
    * Resizing the game window on the mac can sometimes make the END TURN button disappear.


    ASSUMED FIXED for 2.8506 because couldn't reproduce (possibly fixed by other bug fixes):

    * Anmor's Call - Does not trigger when ally is killed by Zaladar's ability. Can't reproduce on 2.85
    * Aramia - when your deck contains no items that can be summoned but there are 3cc items in your graveyard, her ability can bring it back from grave. Can't reproduce on 2.85
    * Decoy Trap - doesn't trigger with Mind Control (details here). Can't reproduce on 2.85 (does correct behaviour)
    * Embers of the Just - the damage from this is reduced to one by Rider of Ellos; appears to be doing combat damage instead of ability damage. Can't reproduce on 2.85
    * Energy Extraction - Killing opponent hero by using Energy Extraction on Derkan (while he is the only ally on the board) will result into a frozen game. Can't reproduce on 2.8505 (game ends properly, might have been fixed by all the "killed" trigger fixes)
    * Glass Chalice of Knowing did not get card that went to bottom of deck with Zail's Hymn Can't reproduce on 2.850 (gets the right ally), added unit test
    * Hunter's Gambit - Still reduces an ally's health even when A Legend Rises is attached. Can't reproduce on 2.850
    * Loest's Burden doesn't trigger off Aldmor Conduit. Can't reproduce, added unit test
    * Mass Purification - does not consistently remove all attachments (might be related to Zail's Hymn and multiple attachments). Can't reproduce on 2.8505
    * Mettle of the Yari - Sometimes doesn't trigger off Yari Spearman Can't reproduce on 2.850
    * Night Owl - When Night Owl was returned to play using Ghostmaker it did not gain stealth (even though the opponent had more allies). Can't reproduce on 2.850 (correctly gets stealth for me)
    * Phoenix Urigon - doesn't get readied in next turn if it was killed by Garth's Concoction. Can't reproduce on 2.850 (he is readied for my next turn if killed by the 3 damage from Garth's Concoction. Death from the poison would be at the start of my turn, so he should not be usable that turn if revived.)
    * Radiant Wisp - Gains +1/+1 when mind controlled. Can't reproduce
    * Ricochet Trap - reduces hero health and then adds it back on - if the first step causes zero health, then it kills the hero and ends the game. Can't reproduce on 2.8505 (hero on 1HP is not killed by Kris or Jeweler's Dream if he has Ricochet Trap)
    * Rotling - When Raikka activates SE ability and you play Rotling, rmoving an ally in graveyard, it comes into plasy as 2/1 instead of 2/2. Can't reproduce on 2.8505. (My Raikka with my Rotling after her ability and an exile comes in 3/2. My Raikka and their Rotling and an exile comes in 1/2. All correct behaviour.)
    * Spiked Bolas Strike stolen from opponent gives damage to controller (of SBS?) when it is removed. Can't reproduce on 2.850 (it correctly damages the controller of the ally it was removed from)
    * Wizent's Prayer - Couldn't target allies or any of the new SF cards in my opponent's graveyard(discard pile). Can't reproduce, added unit test


    Unbanned Cards in 2.85
    * Nathanias, People's Champion
    * Lythian Sledgehammer


    Balance Changes for 2.85
    * Desperate Tactics wording changed to "Target weapon you control with X attack is destroyed: target opposing hero or ally takes 1 + X damage" (the weapon must be successfully destroyed for you to be able to do the damage).


    SEE BELOW FOR ALL EXPLICIT FIXES ...

    KNOWN CARD BUGS THAT WERE FIXED FOR THIS VERSION (part 2):

    * All Hope is Lost damage is being prevented by Holy Shield. FIXED
    * Allies sent to graveyard still not consistent. See here. FIXED
    * Anmor's Horn - Removes resources from the bottom of the resource pile. FIXED
    * Aramia - when your deck is empty, activating Aramia's ability makes the game freeze. FIXED
    * Aural Battery did not increase Banebow's ability damage. FIXED
    * Black Garb against ally with Holy Shield should allow hero to defend. FIXED
    * Blackened Heart not giving proper immunity. FIXED
    * Bloodpack Shaman - can retrieve ally from grave even if Spirit Warden is in play FIXED
    * Bloodthirsty - Does not trigger when Rampant Krygon uses it's ability to kill an ally. FIXED
    * Bone Saber - last in play undead ally with highest attack is the one that performs attack not the first one in board. FIXED
    * Cleric of the Asyn - Does not get buffed when the opponent targets an attached Embers of the Just on him. FIXED
    * Cryptspawn Tormentor - with Tidal Wave, it will count an undead ally(ies) on the leftmost as being part of the graveyard and will return to hand instead of graveyard. NOT A BUG
    * Cryptspawn Tormentor - When it dies and should be returned to hand while Wrath of the Forest is out, a card is drawn first before it is sent to hand so that when your hand gets filled to 7, it goes to the graveyard instead. FIXED
    * Champion of Irum on 2HP should survive when Furrion Terror is summoned. FIXED
    * Coercion - works even if A Legend Rises is attached. FIXED
    * Confluence of Fate - Holy Shield prevents the sustain damage. FIXED
    * Dakrath and Ironhide Karash should reduce damage after the damage dealing step (and the normal reduction step.) FIXED
    * Disciple of Aldmor - is affected by Hero SE abilities. FIXED
    * Der'kan, the Bone King - When it dies and should be returned to hand while Wrath of the Forest is out, a card is drawn first before it is sent to hand so that when your hand gets filled to 7, it goes to the graveyard instead. FIXED
    * Drag and drop of stolen cards doesn't work FIXED
    * Embers of the Just damage goes through Spelleater Bands. FIXED
    * Embers of the Just issues 1 (causes sync errors sometimes if you cancel second ability). FIXED
    * Embers of the Just issues 2 (doesn't trigger off Spitfire Hound, doesn't trigger Lingering Essence). FIXED
    * Final Flourish - Not working. Possibly in times when you have no shadow energy. FIXED
    * Garth's Concoction controller doesn't get 1 damage from Molten Destroyer. FIXED
    * Grimjaw Hydra - did not turn off Dakrath's passive ability after attacking him. He still reduced damage from Fireball used on him after. FIXED
    * Infernus, Tyrant of the Damned - does not add +1 damage to initial damage of Flaming Arrow. FIXED
    * Justicar Alysia should increase attack damage before armor reduces it FIXED
    * Layarian Diplomat - possibly not working on SF cards (e.g. A. Wisp, Woodland Spotter, Stardust Amplifier) FIXED
    * Living Armor discarding Brimstone Devourer - Disciple of Aldmor should not be immune. FIXED
    * Living Armor - When MC'ed Living Armor does not trigger an opponent's Dimension Ripper. Not a bug. There is no other player in the combat, so no draw should happen
    * Lyra Blackrose should trigger when ability fully resolved (e.g. Bloodfang and Glass Chalice of Knowing). FIXED
    * Lythian Sledgehammer - allows the playing of multiple weapons. FIXED
    * Lythite Coating - removed when an ally is killed. FIXED
    * Mind Control does not go to graveyard if the targeted ally can't attack. FIXED
    * Mind Control is treated like an attachment by Wizent's Shimmercloak. FIXED
    * Moonlight Bracers stolen from opponent isn't giving my weapon +1 durability when destroyed. FIXED
    * Morbid Acolyte - cannot use his ability on Irina, Guardian of the Swan; ability doesn't appear to be working consistently (used on spirit warden but SK still didn't bring back ally from grave) FIXED
    * Nathanias, People's Champion - When summoned, the card you draw is shown to the opponent. FIXED
    * Nathanias, People's Champion - when summoned, the card you draw can be used at no cost. FIXED
    * Ogloth the Glutton - gain health up from 0, which should not be possible FIXED
    * Ogloth the Glutton - not triggering from health reduction death. FIXED
    * Prismatic Field - Ability take effect in current turn after you use it. FIXED
    * Rampant Krygon kills ally affected by Shard of Power (it shouldn't since Shard is a continuous cap applied to health after the fact, whereas Krygon affects the underlying health). FIXED
    * Retreat should not work on friendly ally with Selfishness. FIXED
    * Spiked Bolas Strike - killing 1/3 Twilight Shaman with it did not trigger Eidolon or Twilight Champion. FIXED
    * Spitfire Hound - when it destroys Hunter's Gambit, it's effect takes place before Hunter's Gambit effect being removed takes place (a 4hp ally with Raven's Gambit attached, shouldn't die to Spitfire Hound removing the attachment) FIXED
    * Stoneskin - does not work consistently. FIXED
    * Sword of Might - doesn't have +1 attack while attacking Thunderstrike Construct FIXED
    * The Harder They Fall - Doesn't follow the Standard Resolution Order when there are two allies with the same attack value on board. FIXED
    * Thoughtripper's Cutlass - can still be played by Zaladar if it was already included in the deck from previous version. FIXED
    * Thunderstone Golem - gets damaged by Living Armor when it has immunity to electrical damage. FIXED
    * Thunderstone Golem grows even when the only electrical damage was directed against him (which he blocked, so no damage was actually dealt). FIXED
    * Throwing Knife - When using Throwing Knife against a Dark Flayer, it defends even though the weapon has ambush. FIXED
    * Tome of Knowledge - Won't present an ability button on a turn that you replenish an empty deck. Happens with Eternal Renewal and Resurrection in Meltdown games. FIXED
    * Transmogrification Curse - breaks the unique rule for items by turning multiple copies of the same ally into artifacts FIXED
    * Twilight Champion - gains +1/+1 to allies dying to supernova and therefore survives Supernova FIXED
    * Twilight Eidolon - Twilight allies that die during their controller's turns, and then get returned from graveyard via Twilight Eidolon, do not get readied at the end of turn, so you can't use them next turn. FIXED
    * Urigon's Fang - Only freezes creatures that attack you until the end of that turn. That can defend right after they attack you, and they unfreeze with any creatures you froze by attacking FIXED
    * Victor Heartstriker's ability then Raven's Gambit does not kill ally affected by Shard of Power (works correctly if Shard of Power not in play). FIXED
    * Violet Thunderstorm should do its damage before attacker ally deals combat damage. (see ruling) FIXED
    * Voracious Arachnid - not triggering from health reduction death (e.g. Rampant Krygon) or negative health modifiers (e.g. Mark of the Feared). FIXED
    * Vozitian Orders - does not let you return the last ally you played in a turn, even where another ally was played (and does not permit allies summoned before VO was either). FIXED
    * Weevil-tipped Crossbow - Loses 2 durability when defending (happened when attacked with Emore Crossbow). FIXED
    * Wulven Rally should be cancelable if no targets selected (so drag and drag to nothing should be cancelable). FIXED

    Please note that some of the fixes were pretty radical and may well have broken other things. I've run all the unit tests successfully and played some PVP games against myself, but that's not really exhaustive enough, is it?

    Any issues caused by my fixes should be easy to correct, providing we get the test coverage.

    Thanks to Veles, he reported this one: Belladonna has arcane damage when it should be sword. This has been in the game since forever and will have affected some arcane type cards. It's fixed now, but not yet on test server.

    We had a few games without issue earlier (apart from the Twilight Champion bug and Belladonna incorrect damage), but Indastria / Shining / Lahiri ran into a sync error just now. I watched the replay and saw the same weird issue. I'm looking into it now.
