DC HeroClix: Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes Fellowship of the Ring Heroclix HeroClix Rules Review HeroClix Watch List

Update: HeroClix Watch List

Greetings HeroClix Fans,

Over the past two weeks we have been diligently reviewing the figures on the Watch List. After extensive internal debate and play testing the following changes were decided on.

Tellus (Link Telepathically Trait)

Old Wording: LINK TELEPATHICALLY: Friendly characters within 4 squares can draw lines of fire and count range and squares from the square of any one friendly character within 4 squares of Tellus.

New Wording- LINK TELEPATHICALLY: Friendly characters with the Legion of Superheroes keyword and within 4 squares can draw lines of fire and count range from the square of any one friendly character within 4 squares of Tellus.

The Change: We removed the counting squares part of the power and limited the power to Legion of Superheroes keyworded characters.

Highfather (The Pact Trait)

Old Wording: THE PACT: At the beginning of the game, you may announce a pact. If you do, the highest point character on your force and the highest point character on your opponent’s force (300 points or less) can’t target opposing characters with an attack until one of them has taken damage from an attack or they are the only 2 characters on the map. This ability can’t be ignored.

New Wording: THE PACT: At the beginning of the game you may announce a pact. If you do, the highest point character on your force and the highest point character on your opponent’s force (300 points or less) can’t target opposing characters with an attack until one of them has taken damage from an attack, they are the only 2 characters on the map, or your opponent only has one character on the map. This ability can’t be ignored.

The Change: Pact ends when opponent’s force has less than 2 characters.

Arwen (I Call on the LoudWater Epic)

Old Wording: I CALL ON THE LOUDWATER!: Give Arwen an epic action; she can use Smoke Cloud as a free action regardless of range and line of fire, but the first token must be placed in any square on the edge of the map and she may place 1 additional hindering terrain marker per 100 points of the build total; after action resolve, deal 1 penetrating damage to each opposing character occupying a square into which a marker was just placed.

New Wording : I CALL ON THE LOUDWATER!: Once per game give Arwen an epic action; she can use Smoke Cloud as a free action regardless of range and line of fire, but the first token must be placed in any square on the edge of the map and she may place 1 additional hindering terrain marker per 100 points of the build total; after action resolve, deal 1 penetrating damage to each opposing character occupying a square into which a marker was just placed.

The Change: Made the power once per game.

Thanks,

The WK Team

May 2014 HeroClix Watch List Update!

MV24-GuardiansoftheGalaxy-logo

 

Greetings HeroClix fans,

Last Fall, as part of WizKids Games’ ongoing efforts to maintain a dynamic and exciting play environment, we announced the HeroClix Watch List.  The Watch list is a mechanism by which we will communicate our intent to review elements of our games that may require refinement.

At this time we are adding three figures to the HeroClix Watch List:

  • SLoSH 048 Tellus
  • SloSH 052 Highfather
  • FoTR 016 Arwen

For various reasons, these figures have been identified as elements that potentially have unintended impact on the meta-game.

Over the next several weeks, the Game Design and Rules Teams will review the above figures to determine if any changes are required.

As always, we thank you for your continued understanding and support.

Sincerely,
The WK Team
