The next major update for Guardian Tales will be released on November 18, 2022 on the Korean servers. Kong Studios had scheduled this update for November 17, but it has been slightly delayed due to delays. The Western servers won’t get this update for a while, with no confirmed date at this time. We’ll keep an eye on this over the next few weeks and will report a Western release date for you as soon as possible.
What is the Rare Hero Promotions feature?
This update releases the brand new Hero Promotion feature within Guardian Tales, which allows you to use Hero Crystals to upgrade heroes whose transcendence is complete.
This not only makes the hero you select even stronger, but also adds some nice little changes. The hero’s artwork will change as soon as you promote them and a storyline will become available. Hero promotion allows heroes to boost their stats and upgrade their skills, while also adding a brand new skill node to their awakening trees.
Need new goods
You can open Special Nodes with a new resource called ‘Essence of Star’ that you use in addition to Gold and Awakening Stone. You can obtain ‘Essence of Star’ through new content in future updates, which we recommend cultivating to ensure you have more than enough for hero promotions.
During this update, play the brand new beginner’s mission to get a special node that you can use to promote one hero.
It is important to note that promoting heroes does not change their rarity rank. In addition, you cannot place heroes you want to promote in the training room, as you cannot promote them when they take up a place.
Since this feature is brand new to Guardian Tales, the hero promotion will initially only be available for two characters. These characters are Craig and Red Hat Elvira, so it may take a while for your favorite hero to be on the promotion list. There is currently no information on exactly when additional characters will receive the hero promotion feature, and who will receive it after that.
For more information on the specific changes to Red Hat Elvira and Craig, be sure to check out the official Guardian Tales patch noteswhere you can learn more about the intricacies of hero promotion.
