Notable features and historyAugment
"Heroes of Maljara, the newest PoxNora expansion, continues to explore the Maljaran Epic. Players can unravel the mystery of Magnus’s kidnapping at Poxnora.com and through the PoxNora Facebook application."
While the original maljara expansion, Maljaran Frontier was received with some enthusiasm, once the novelty began to wear off, the response to more split race began to be more negative and vocal. Regardless that, Heroes of Maljara was well received.
- The split heroes were introduced into this expansion: Ash the Bandit Prince, Garin the Sharpfang, Magnus the Fallen, Mangleshell, Matriarch Sarinda, Mosharn the Barricade, Tremir Craghide, Voil King Ruubgaal and Zeventrech the Last.
- Before this expansion, the Hero ability would had a clause that states "This (Hero) champion takes 15 hp damage whenever you play a rune from another faction". The Split Hero ability from release had the clause "This champion is destroyed if played from a full faction battlegroup". Eventually, the Hero ability was changed to match the split hero ability.
- The new format, Draft, is introduced to the game. "PoxNora introduces a new Draft Tournament system. In a draft tournament each player takes turns selecting runes from the same pack until three packs have been drafted. Players are then paired up, with a maximum of eight players per tournament. The winner is awarded prizes along with tokens and runes. Each player who enters the draft tournaments will receive three packs of ten runes just for playing. The tournament entry fee is paid with tickets, which are available for purchase in the PoxNora Marketplace."
- A new campaign is introduced to keep the moving forward the plot started on the previous expansion.
- Eventually, there would be a midterm release, the "Aspects of...".
