Diamond Hardcore: Fortress



Greetings Knights!

Adventurous knights are constantly under pressure in the Clockworks. Few substances have the strength to handle it like Diamond. What better way to prove that than to use it as armor? As an added bonus, you’ll be able to blind your enemy with its flawless brilliance.

This month Spiral HQ will start the process of completing the gem sets for those who were waiting for a specific month.

The Diamond Prize Box contains items such as:

  • Diamond Aura
  • Floating Diamonds
  • Diamond Disciple Wings
  • Diamond Crown
  • Diamond Wolver Tail
  • Diamond Cat Tail
  • Diamond Costume and Accessories

More information on the Diamond Prize Box and its contents may be found here.



As an added bonus, Spiral HQ has decided it’s time to toss another challenge your way. Based on feedback, we’ve decided to make a few changes and release another map. To that end, we’ve asked our gremlin engineer to prepare the following changes to lockdown this weekend:

  • New Map: Fortress. Fortress is a small castle arena filled with fire pots and littered with fire safety memos. Like other new maps, you will have a higher likelihood of seeing it now, however it will remain in the game after the event is over.
  • Control points once again have obstacles that will cause both teams a number of problems including status effects. Be on the lookout for new hazards!
  • Auto-Target is off.

Side note: Below are a few of the rejected names for the new map. Some were rejected for obvious reasons.

  • Book Burner
  • Cookin’ the Books
  • Page Burner
  • Bonfire of the Vanities
  • Pyromance Novels
  • THE ROOF THE ROOF... wait there's a roof?
  • Why use my level 10 weapons when I can toss a pot?!

Spiral Knights Anniversary Celebration



Spiral Knights is SIX years old! Happy Birthday Spiral Knights!

Come help us celebrate Spiral Knights' birthday!

Help Biscotti, the Skylark's Head Chef, avoid disaster in two special missions - Total Caketastrophe and A Gremlin in Knead. Fight Creep Cakes and Batterbots to earn Cake Slice tokens, then visit Maskwell in Haven Town Square to exchange your tokens for:

- Cake helms
- Anniversary Prize Boxes
- Other party accessories

Lucky knights may also stumble upon a Casino and find cake tokens among the other prizes on the wheel.



Today through April 17, 2017: Spiral HQ has assembled prize boxes from the past year together into a Surprise Box. When you open a Surprise Box, you will randomly receive a past prize box and confetti. There is also a chance to find a Stately Cap costume helm! For details on this box and its contents, visit the wiki here.

Thank you all so much for playing Spiral Knights! We've had a busy year at Grey Havens setting up a new home for Cradle. We're excited that we're now able to focus more on the development of the game.

This year has seen the addition of the Casino, new items for guild halls, new PvP modes, new events, new items, various bug fixes, and a few new PvP maps. It's our hope that next year brings even more from our gremlin engineers who are already hard at work.
