Rise of The Bloodborn – Duelyst Patch 1.78 – Duelyst

Rise of The Bloodborn – Duelyst Patch 1.78by Counterplay Games / December 15, 2016

Patch 1.78 should be available on Dec 15th around 4PM PST.

Rise of the Bloodborn Expansion

We’re excited to bring you the latest DUELYST expansion with 39 New Cards, featuring a new keyword Blood Surge: (activates when you use your General’s Bloodborn Spell), and including some of our favorite artwork for Minions and Spells.

Check out the full expansion card list here.

The Rise of the Bloodborn Orbs are different from the Core and Shimzar set:

  • Each Rise of the Bloodborn Orb contains 3 copies of 3 cards (total of 9 cards).
  • Rise of the Bloodborn Orbs NEVER give duplicates.
  • Rise of the Bloodborn Cards can not be crafted or dis-enchanted, but once you own 3x of a card you can craft the prismatic version.
  • Opening 13 orbs unlocks the entire expansion.
  • Each orb costs 300 GOLD or $2.99 USD.
  • The entire set costs $19.99 USD.

There is a detailed FAQ about the expansion in the DUELYST subreddit.

If you open 3 orbs for GOLD or for $2.99 and then decide to buy the whole set for $19.99 USD you will receive a 300G refund per purchased orb for a total of 900G. TLDR: we refund you any Gold you spent.

New Card Lore

We’ve added new lore for the following Cards:

  • Argeon Highmayne
  • Reva Eventide
  • Zirix Starstrider
  • Scioness Sajj

Still no word on the origins of a certain marble white serpent.

No Patch on January 1st

There won’t be a scheduled patch on January 1st. The gang here is taking a break over the holidays and we anticipate our next patch to be mid-January 2017.

The Rise of the Bloodborn expansion as well as the past 77 patches are a culmination of a year of very hard work for the team. We look forward to showing you what’s in store for 2017.

The season reward cards for December Season will be a random card of the appropriate rarity for each division:

  • Silver – Random Epic card.
  • Gold – Random Legendary card (and all of above).
  • Diamond – Random Rare card (and all of above).
  • S-Rank – Random Common card + 1 Bonus Legendary card (and all of above).

Bug Fixes and Minor Changes

  • You no longer have to watch the full animation while your opponent is executing lethal. You can ESC + Concede to skip it.

General lore :heart:


Nice link to the FAQ, cleared up a lot of interactions for me (specifically Spirit of Valknu).
1 thing I wanted to ask though, will grow stack effects remain after using enfeeble?

The expansion may not have gone in the exact direction that I wanted it to go, but I appreciate that CPG is trying to push stronger, higher impacting-cards into the metagame and provide more tools for the faction to play different archetypes (except Magmar, which was mainly to improve the viability of Starhorn). Another thing is that these strong cards are fairly easy to access due to how the Bloodborne orbs work, making it somewhat easier for F2P players to obtain the new set. Dev’s are giving us about a month to test out the new expansion, so I wouldn’t worry to much about the state of the meta for the first few weeks or so, as there is bound to be some form of a balance patch (like the Shimzar release and balance patch).


Sajj lore :open_mouth:. It is hard to believe this day has come


Might as well ask here, haven’t bumped into this question yet. How does Furosa’s blood surge interact with Grandmaster Variax’s OG and Wraithling’s Fury in general? Are furious wraithlings still considered as wraithlings and thus can be further buffed by the blood surge?


Yes; Furious wraithlings are wraithlings with the 3 mana +4/+4 Wraithling Fury spell buff, and can still be targeted by Blood Baronette (which specifically targets wraithlings). Therefore, I believe it is safe to assume that Furosa will still give the +1/+1 to the furious wraithlings.


Oh god have mercy

Check out my quick analysis here!


variax is life variax is love, “AWESOME”


Going to test Variax looks awesome.


Everyone launch your clients it is about to drop right on time too


Just opened my orbs. Don’t have the full set but I have almost all of the cards I was looking foward to test. Everything looks great so far, and plenty of card lores have been added as well. Expansion is super dope so far, have high hopes for the gameplay.


When i opened my first orb i got sanguinar, Nosh Rak and Divine Spark is it just me or does everyone get those cards first? Otherwise feels like the vetruvian gods are calling me


Nope, Nosh rak was the second to last card that I got from my 13 orb openings


TRAITOR the vetruvians do not trust the gods (read zirx and sajj lore’s)


I believe in our one true god Maknator, swine


"Our Lord and Saviour " is his title young acolyte. You must give respect.


Give respect to a filthy animal that garners nothing but disgust? You disappoint me.


You dare insult a priest of the Church and our Lord and Saviour. You make enemies with the Church knave.
