New Hero, content Update and bug fixes

Hello everyone, it's been a while since our last Update and we are happy to finally bring all these changes to you.
Besides many new features like the new hero Ion and daily quests, there are also many bug fixes, visuals improvements and better performance!
Sadly we had to reset the user progress due to the patch. As compensation every user gets 150 gems after the first login till the next week.
We hope you all like this Update, enjoy!

New Hero

The last mission of grassland is now playable in this version! When you finished this mission, you can play a new hero: Ion!
Ion has mastered the magic around lightning. With his strong ranged attacks, no enemy is save from him!

Daily Quests

We added daily quests to the game. You get up to 5 quests every day to finish and get rewards.
When you finish enough quests in the week, you can open a activity Chest and get additional rewards.
The daily quests will be available after you finished the tutorial.
If that's not enough, you get additional loot every day for just logging in to the game! It will appear once you finished a session

Notification System

When something important happens, a notification will pop up on the left side.
You can click on the text to move directly where that event took place

Mission Goals and Hints

Mission goals are now shown in every mission. When you play the mission on easy, you get additional tipps on how to win the mission

New Items

There is a new Item coming in 3 sizes: Experience Potions. They can be used in the profile window to level up your hero.
The amount of experience is increased with the size of the Potion

Damage Calculation Rework/Balancing

Before every unit had a armor value presented as percentage. This could cause to some .. unwished moments where you level up your hero's armor up to 70% and get under a tower additional 30% armor, reaching 100% armor and being invincible.
Therefore instead of a percentage calculation, everyone has a flat value. In the new calculation, the damage reduction can never reach zero. Therefore stacking up armor is still effective, but loses efficience the higher it goes.
Additionally we nerved archer a little to be more balanced

Monster Rework

The Monster was kinda weak and boring, so we made him more .. agressive! When he kills a unit, he turns into a rampage! He gets faster at killing everything and there is no way to stop him! So you better don't get close.
When his rampage stopps, he will directly move back to his main location.
The monster also won't take a break on a cliff and look into the sea anymore. He will find a new position quicker than before

Building Design Rework

The archery was really basic and could lead to confusion, that the archers in the building were already spawned units.
To reduce confusion and add more details the archery got a rework.
The stronghold got some features added, too

New Economy

With new ways of getting gold and gems, we also adjusted all prices and rewards.
Also the "Strength" and "Defense" Potion are no longer purchased with gems but with gold

Level Changes

Reworked Hero Tutorial map. It shows now that the hero spell can deal damage and knock back units
Reworked Wildfire
Decreased fire speed on "Wildfire" and "Deep Forest" on hard

The mission "Shooting Cliff" now has the bridge build up right at the beginning to reduce confusion
The mission "Mountains" now has the bridge build up right at the beginning to reduce confusion
The mission "Spooky Lights" has one less monster wandering on the main road
Small adjustments in "Trunks" so that units can move better
Changed some lights in the darker levels on the night island
