The Dark Nation

Baby Azrael

The brand new pet Baby Azrael, which can be acquired in the item shop, is not just an eye-catcher. He supports heroes in both the Demon Tower and the Devil's Catacomb with his passive skills. In the battle against his terrifying family, he lends players a bonus of 1500 HP and 15% more damage from the second floor of these areas.

A new adventure begins

Puh, spiders! – Shocking fun for Halloween

From the 23rd of October, the land of the Dragon will also be celebrating Halloween. To fit the occasion, a new costume will be rolled out. The spooky fun reaches its peak in spider dungeon 3: a terrifying spider waits for heroes there. Attractive items will reward those that defeat the monster.
