Shadow Arena, aka the battle royale game with fun modes but nobody around to play them, continues to push out updates in defiance of its low player numbers. This latest update has unleashed a couple of new heroes to the game’s roster as well as adjusted how defense points (DP) work.
First, the new heroes: Say hello to Wu-Ju, a controllable Black Spirit character that can decrease the DP of opponents but has low hit points and armor points itself, making it a great choice to play with a team; and Tantu, a ranged single-target offensive powerhouse thanks to the use of an Iron Buster gun.
In addition to these two new roster additions, the patch has modified how DP works, reducing the amount of damage received as DP increases; at 300 DP, damage received is decreased by 7%, and at 500 DP, damage received is decreased by 9%. These adjustments are in response to the application of Ignore DP mechanics and are meant to slightly increase the efficiency of DP, while also making Ignore DP a better counter to high DP characters instead of flat armor point increases.
The patch notes also outline a few specific adjustments to other characters in the roster, so players will likely want to read up.
