Dawn of Champions the newest Ascension set brings with it an all-new way to play the game with the new Champion cards, as well as introducing faction specific monsters for the first time! In Dawn of Champions, players take on the role of Champions of each of the four factions – Dhartha, Nairi, Sadranis, and Kor. Through acquiring or defeating cards that share a faction with their champion, players build reputation, unlocking special cards and abilities as the game progresses.
Dawn of Champions also introduces the new Rally mechanic, which allows players a chance to acquire or defeat additional Heroes and Monsters of the same faction, bolstering their ranks as long as they remain loyal to their faction’s cause.
