Coalitions Has Arrived!

Greetings Everyone,

The 25th Pox Nora expansion, Coalitions, is now here! Coalitions introduces many new runes, abilities, and a challenging single player campaign with an exciting new reward, and much more.

Launch Gift
To celebrate the launch of Coalitions, we have given everyone 500 free Shards.

Launch Event
Earn an additional 250 shards for every 10 ranked games you play during this period. Rewards handed out at the end of the Event period. Matches must last over 10 minutes to qualify.

General
  • New Runes: 64 new runes have been added with the release of the Coalitions expansion
  • New Map Rotation: A new map rotation is in for the Coalitions expansion, 6 of which have received updates
  • New Packs: A new Coalitions Pack has been added to the Marketplace
  • New Boxes: A new Coalitions Box which includes 300 Rune Forge Shards has been added to the Marketplace
  • New Mega Box: a new limited time Coalitions Mega Box has been added to the Marketplace. The Mega Box gives 3 Coalitions Boxes and 1500 Rune Forge Shards!
  • Tournaments: Basic free tournaments have been enabled.
  • Rune Forge Shard Ratios Improvement: Rune Forge rates have been updated to be more player friendly, with improved shard values when sacrificing runes. Our goals were:
  • Increased shard generation for all rarities (between 125% to 250% relative to previous values)
    IN/OUT ratios are now consistent between Core and Extended Set
  • Decreased number of runes required to move up tiers
  • It will now take 20 Rares to craft a Legendary, compared to the previous 30
  • It will now take 4 Exotics to craft a Legendary, compared to the previous 7.5
  • Increased yield when moving down tiers
  • Sharding a Rare will now allow you to craft 5 Uncommons, compared to the 0.83 previously
  • Sharding an Exotic will now allow you to craft 2.5 Rares, compared to the 0.8 previously
  • Extended Set Runes values are now fixed at 200% of Core Set costs
  • Player Rewards: All single player tutorials, campaigns, and daily skirmish matches will now award players core set runes upon successful completion.
  • Ronin Runes added to Extended Set packs and boxes.
  • An all new challenging single player campaign is now available on the Marketplace. This campaign follows the PoxNora story where it left off, and while Menalaus is absent from the forest a Group called the Nefari Resurrection have come together to try and gain control of K'thir Forest. Also for the first time ever players who beat this campaign on Legendary difficulty will earn a FREE Limited Edition rune!
  • Daily Skirmish: Added a new Daily Skirmish called "Old Things"
  • All the runes with a * at the end of their name have been removed. Every player that had these runes will have them replaced with the normal version with the same upgrades selected and at the same level.
  • Champion Costing Update:
    The costing formula for runes has been adjusted slightly. Cost for DEF, particularly for higher HP units, has been reduced, while costs for base HP has been increased. For the majority of champions, this results in little to no change. Units whose costs are largely in HP will see their cost go up, while units that were previously paying significant nora for DEF may see some cost decrease. Overall, costs will have increased by an average of around 2 nora, with the brunt of the increases being borne by the champions on the lower end of the cost spectrum, which should go some ways towards correctly some of the efficiency issues with those champions.

Maps
The ranked Map Rotation has been updated. There are now 12 maps in the ranked rotation with several of them with updated shrine and nora font locations.
  • Axillium
  • Elemental Plateau
  • Lava Plains
  • Lost City
  • Forsaken Wastes
  • Shores of Maljara
  • Brood Pits (Updated)
  • Ironfist Pass (Updated)
  • K'thir Forest (Updated)
  • Ruins of Valdac (Updated)
  • Sundered Lands (Updated)
  • Tundra Lake (Updated)

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue with the game client where decks were displaying in reverse alphabetical order
  • Fixed an issue with the SP Faction Bonus, Ancient Implications and Mark of Redemption not triggering upon champion death in some cases
  • Fixed an issue where Prestige caused improper stacking of Iron Will and Fearless
  • Fixed an issue where Surge abilities were improperly counting Illusions when applying the stat modifier.
  • Fixed an issue where Sermon was not removing the +5 HP from champions that had been damaged.
  • Fixed an issue where Wolf Pack was only giving the primary wolf all of the damage bonuses that should have been applied evenly to the other wolves summoned from the Timber Wolves rune.
  • Fixed an issue where the Maximum HP from intoxicated was not being removed when Intoxicated wore off.
  • Fixed an issue with Swarm and its variants, where they were using an incorrect form of basic attack detection. This was causing them to only detect the most recent basic attack gained.
  • Fixed an issue where Reflesh's effects were not removable
    Form Change abilities have been redone to fix various issues

Drums of War and Player Ranks
Drums of War and Player Ranks have been reset. The Players who were the highest contributors to their faction and highest ranked player from each faction have been awarded 15000 Gold.

Have been playing since before Steam release. Pox is a tabletop card game. Pox has an awful reputation because of SOE's running it into the ground, but the new owner, Desert Owl Games, has gone an excellent job at reviving the game and lifting the crushing Pay-To-Win model.

This is a strategy game and the average game takes 30-45mins. After the tutorial, the player needs to buy card packs, and it can take time to build up a playable deck. Patience is required, but with the lucrative daily challenges and campaigns, it doesn't feel monotonous or grindy at all. I very much enjoy this game and recommend it to players who enjoy these genres.

Love the gane, but it seems a little unflexible when just starting out. You don't get really any real amount of cards to build your first deck, which means you're basically forced to using the static free decks you get after doing the walkthroughs.

7/10, way better off than the P2W s**t it was before.

This is an amazing game. A mix between Card collection and turn based stratigy. Unfortunatly it doesn't have a lot of players, but hopefully that will change.

Ah, Poxnora...This game has all the potential in the world and at the same time the potential to fail at any moment. Poxnora is not a game that you will open for the first time and instantly love, but rather after you climb the learning wall you will see a game that rewards real tactical play and creativeness with its own unique features and lore. In pox, you can talk directly with the devs and high ranking members of the community which is great for expressing your opinions and thoughts on the game. The hearthstone-like system allows you to craft runes, but in the end you will most likely need so spend a small amount of money on the game to get rolling. I love this game, and I hope that many more people will find it and take the time to learn and enjoy it.

This game is crack cocaine...It is suprisingly deep. It is alot like chess only you get to choose what pieces you bring to the board. I wish they would make a Pox Nora 2 with updated graphics, I would back that for sure. Very fun and free to play, the cash shop is available to speed up the process, but I have enjoyed the leveling up. The UI is hard to deal with but in the forums the devs say they are working on it. Hope this is helpful.

It's a nice turn based strategy game with much, much depth and a lot of cards (runes) to collect.

IMO, the best part is the fact that you're able to create your own battlegroup to play, tweaking a little bit your champions to better fit into your strategy; and be lucky and earn those expensive runes that everybody wants into packs. But this takes a good amount of time if you're going 100% free to play. So, or you will invest your time or your money in the game to make the cool stuff, this way, I can only recommend this game for those that like the genre and are willing to do one or another, or for those that are so casual to the point that will be happy playing with premade battlegroups (some are really competitive) until be able to create your own battlegroup.
This game is running for a long time now, so, there is a lot of players that can pass over new players as if they are nothing because they have much better runes or because they developed really good strategies.
The greater cons of this game for me are the fact that sometimes appears updates that nerfs so much some runes that they become useless and that you may spend a really good amount of time just trying to find a PVP match.

If you want to play for free, here is a little list of what you can do in a way that may give you a notion of how much time you will spend to earn cool things in this game:
- you can earn common, uncommon and rare runes pretty easy and exotic or legendary if you're lucky;
- you can destroy useless runes for points to forge new ones;
- you can get old runes by winning certain matches, some of those runes are really good, others, really bad - these runes are worth 1, 2, 10, 40 and 60 points in the forge, according to their rarity, if you wanna to destroy them to earn points. There are newer runes that will give 2, 5, 25, 120, 240 points in the forge when destroyed. While will cost 5, 10, 12, 25, 50, 100, 200, 300, 400 and 720 to be made, according to their rarity;
- you can forge and destroy pretty much any rune, except: limited runes and runes from the last expansion;
- you can win gold in the end of each match. This game uses a time/difficulty reward system that will give you up to 300 base gold for the match (10 gold per min in the hardest lvl), what is like a 30 min match in expert mode (it's a rewarding system that will not reward your skills, because there are matches that you may spend more than 30 min and will get the limit of 300 gold and others that you will finish in 5 min and will win 50 gold) and some extra small amounts of gold for some achievements during the battle, like playing a match where each side loses 20 champions;
- you can earn extra gold with the daily missions, will be more than 1500 gold per day if you complete all missions - and I think that there is a limit of 10k gold that you can earn per day;
- you can purchase packs that costs 2100 (not worthy) and 3510 gold (or use real money), but packs from the last expansion only can be purchased using money. Anyway, you can get runes from the last expansion through trading. Packs that you can buy with gold has a 10% chance to come with an exotic rune and 5% chance to come with a legendary rune;
- you can purchase boxes with 10 packs that costs 19440 (not worthy, IMO) and 31950 gold (or using real money) - by buying these is guaranteed that one pack will come with an exotic rune;
- you can try to trade runes with other players. The "try" is there because it's difficult to appear in the trade runes that are below the exotic rarity for you to make an offer and it is even more difficult to get offers for rare, uncommon and common runes that you put, unless they are the top tier of their rarity; and
- you can use poxbox.net to trade with an online store. It uses a points balance system and have some limitations towards the amount and rarity of runes you trade in and out. Anyway, it will accept pretty much anything that you send to the store and you can get what they have in stock using the points that you have, but stay aware that in the points proportion, the house will always win - they use a system that gives you a notion of the demand/importance of each rune, so you can use it to see if the trade that you're doing with another player is worth, also is interesting that the points for each runes changes per minute, according to their demand and quantity in stock, so, it is like the stock exchange.

A game all its own, steep learning curve, fantastic depth. Will break the bank, although it isn't as pay-to-win as it first seems.

Score: 4/10

I have now testet this game beyond its initial bounds and it is clear that it is a pay to win game, and possibly also a pay to play. Even though I saved enough gold for 2 packages, and played all of the initial walkthroughs etc. I could hardly cope with the campaigns on normal (a few can be taken on hard, but since the campaigns are tweaked towards optimized decks and therefore give the basal AI an extreme ressource advantage around 3x times your ressources in some maps) and against players you would be severely limited by the locked basic decks you could use. It may be a fine game for p2w and p2p players, but for anybody just looking to have a good time it quickly loses its flair as all of the relevant features demands a basic collection of cards you simply do not have within the first couple of weeks to months.

If you have a bunch of time to spare or is looking for a p2p game it might be an 8/10 because of its tactical properties, but in that case I would recommend that you test it out before starting to buy packs etc. :)

I had to do some changes and stuff like that just so I could play the tutorial... and you have 3 tutorials and you'll have to do after each one of them "Ran out of memory" (Or something like that) I dont say it's hard to fix it, but I don't want to do that all the time just so I can play against the AI.... When you try to add "Founds" to the game you'll also get an error. I think the game have alot to offer, but after all those bugs im just going to leave it until they fix it. Tip for all dev out there, Dont publish the game before it's finished! Like infestations, Rust, H1Z1 etc... Like come on -.-

Overall: 5.5/10 - because I like the play style

Great game ruined by terrible free-to-play (or should i say pay-to-play) model!

The thing is: I can't even effectively grind for gold to buy new cards (runes). Cuz daily quests are just impossible to complete for a newbie without pre-paid deck. Like it says "play two games with druid unit in ur deck to get 350 gold". So I went to poxbase.com and poxnora.com/info/publicdecks.do. I was searching hard just to find that there is no public deck with druids in it!
I have 17 runes total, and have collected 6000 gold as a newbie for completing tutorials. It is needed at least 30 runes to build a legitimate deck in runes manager. Runes cost 3K gold for every 10 random runes (runes being sold in packs). This means no way to even grind when I can't grind with public deck.
So they suggest me to pay for even get a possiblity to grind?
And even if you somehow manage to generate 3K gold daily it would take a month to build a playable deck.
Not recommended unless you have some sort of solution to grinding problem like if you can boost your beginning with help of a friend or if you pay real money.

I am going to give you the good the bad and the ugly of this game and let you make up your own minds about whether you are going to enjoy Poxnora or not. To sum up this game quickly, I would say it's a cross between a collectable trading card game like MtG, a tabletop minatures game like Warhammer Fantasy and turn based tactics games like FF Tactics and Advance Wars.

Where to start?
One thing I am going to stress to anyone considering this game is that at it's heart this is NOT a casual game. Veteran players have learned an encylopedia of knowledge about this game. Cards are divided into 4 types, Champions, Spells, Relics and Equipment. There are hundreds of abilities and conditions that can used in this game, from the basics like block, dodge and stealth to the obscure like planarbound and encouraged. What does this mean? As a new player you are going to be confused while you slowly learn what all the hundreds of different cards do and how they interact. What this also means however is that if you enjoy deep strategy there is simply nothing else like Poxnora. Once you learn the game the sky is the limit as far as how many strategies you can employ.

Is this Pay to Win?
The short answer is yes, but not in an evil gimmicky cash grab way. Like I said above this game is very much like MtG or Warhammer. It is a hobby and a collection you build over time. Almost everything is available to purchase with in game currency but there is a HUGE library of cards to be had. This isn't going to appeal to everybody, but the people who it does appeal to will enjoy this game immensely because it is such a deep tactical game. This is a skill game and a well made deck of low value cards can easily outplay a poorly made mash up of expensive power cards. So it is certainly possible to find success relatively quickly without dropping any money on this game at all. You build your collection over time with free cards you earn from playing and then you can bolster your collection by buying cards with real money as you see fit.

How do I enjoy this game without spending a lot or any money?
I recommend all new players go through the tutorials and the new player guides that were recently added. These will reward you with free training decks and in game currency that you can use to start building your collection. You can use in game currency to purchase packs and boxes or individual cards, so you can get the best cards for free. There is also a PVP format that restricts to pre-made training decks so that you aren't facing opponents with lots of strong rare cards right away. There is trading in this game so anything you earn with in game currency can be traded away to other players for something different you may want.

My final advice would be to get to know the game and seek out help from the community whenever possible. People will be more than willing to help point new players in the right direction if they ask. There are community run pools of extra cards to help new players get started and a lot of resources on the forums and fansites to help you learn the game.

I highly recommend this game for it's deep gameplay and rich tactics.

This game is basicly chess on steroids. It has a learning curve that will break your neck and is played over a long run and there are many things to learn about it because it has a lot of tactical depth. But if you do stick around for all that, it is very rewarding in the end. Unfortunately we live in an age where people are used to instant gratification, and games are not perceived as food for brain anymore. Do I recommend it? Yes I do, but not to everyone.

Fantastic game. A new company, Desert Owl Games, have really reinvented the game, in a brilliant way. Its has a very similar "free to play" feel akin to Hearthstone imo with its daily income of ingame gold, but without the current "Arena" draft system. Drafting wil hopefully be reimplemented in the near future. The game has great depth and variety with thousands of runes to choose from when building your decks or just your collection. The artowrk is excellent and the lore is detailed and tells a very interesting story. 8 factions to choose from all with hundreds and hundreds of runes unique to that faction. Almost all content is able to be purchased in the marketplace with in game gold aswell as real money. A loyal and still active community is nice to see. The game caters for both PvE and PvP players. A really good game that combines elements of TCGs, CCGs, RPGs, F2P games, and turn based strategy games to create an excellent and very addictive experience. Highly recommended. Give it a try and have fun battling the denizens of Poxanthu.

If you're into fast action, don't play this game. If you like strategy, in any form at all, play this game. I don't really like how limited the "free" of this free-to-play game is, but the mechanics are sound and thoughtful.
