Orcs Must Die! Unchained: Magic Apprentice Apprentice expands hero ranks.

With the 1.7 update, Gameforge is expanding the hero selection in Orcs Must Die! Unchained around the high-spirited Apprentice. In the future, symbols will indicate whether a hero is more suitable for offensive or defensive play. In addition, players will be able to use a point system to track how well their team members are doing.

There is a trailer for the unpredictable magic dilettante on YouTube.

Wreak havoc with fire and ice

Apprentice is a War Mage student. Barely able to control her magical powers, the reckless adolescent finds herself stumbling from one disaster to the next. The result of one is FeeBee, the little bat that supports Apprentice. In the game, her unpredictability is shown by the fact that she can change the elements of her spells and resistances, alternating between attacking the enemy with fire, frost, lightning, or arcane magic. If the young lady doesn’t know how to use magic to help herself, she still has a stolen tome at hand, with which she lashes out at opponents.

Community support

Much like Apprentice memorized tips and tricks from her teacher, War Mage, publisher Gameforge and developer Robot Entertainment learn from community feedback.

“We would like to thank all participants of the ongoing closed beta for the great feedback and support we have received so far. This form of feedback is extremely important and valuable in creating the best possible Orcs Must Die! experience for all of us,” said Patrick Winkler, Product Director for Orcs Must Die! Unchained at Gameforge.

Gameplay improvement

In order to promote the formation of balanced teams and to make it easier for beginners to get started, symbols now show the ideal position of a hero on the offensive or on the defensive. In addition, in the future, players will see how well their teammates are doing in the MVP rating, who is the best leader or defender – and this will give them additional motivation to give everything for their team. A selection of new skins complete the offer in Update 1.7.
