BOSS TAMING

 

You always wondered what it would feel like to be the master of one of those deadly creatures. And with Epic 8.3 it’s time to find out!

 

Learn about: mid / boss soul taming!


19 Bosses are available for taming and classified as “Unique”, like the White Dragon, Mystic Koala, Death Tyrant and the Arena pets. Unlike the Basic and Rare soul creatures, unique soul creatures can learn additional skills at level 150 and 155 (Passive skills). So these creatures will be stronger than anything you have ever experienced. It won’t be easy to capture them in an empty card – but it will be more than worth the effort! Face the mighty Bear Mother, Butkadah, Soulseeker, the Bone Dragon, Takin, Crustalino, Ashmaw the Devourer and many more to feel their power rising in your own hands!

Oh, sweet bear mother!  Crustalino - at your service!

 

 

5 field bosses are categorized as “Special” soul creatures.The likes of Silex the Giant, Hector or Dominatus can be found on open fields and won’t be easy to tame. But just imagine the feeling of finally binding the mighty Hero Hector to your card!

14 Middle Bosses are categorized as “Rare” soul creatures. Baron Madius, Vulcanus, Raymond and the Waste Shredder are just a few we want to mention. From the Trainee Island to the Vault of Lies – these creatures will give you a good fight.

What you need to know:


Is there a difference between normal soul creature taming and boss taming?

 

There will only be 3 class types instead of 5:

  • Short Distance Damage Dealer
  • Long Distance Damage Dealer
  • Magic Type

 
Their skills are randomly distributed in a method similar to normal soul creature taming. Also the number of bosses is limited and some of them have a respawn timer that will get you into nail gnawing, fearing for when and where you should have your creature taming skill ready.

 

To sum it up, here are the different soul creature types of Epic 8.2 and the new boss creature types of 8.3:

Where to go to tame your first boss?

 

To guide you in the right direction, here is a brief overview of what card can tame what monster and where to find it:

 

Icon Item Description Monster for taming
Special Basic Special Basic Empty card for taming of low level monsters General field/dungeon low level monsters
Normal Rare Normal Rare Empty card for taming of normal Rare monsters Champion monster and middle bosses
Special Rare Special Rare Empty card for taming of Special Rare monsters Field boss & middle boss
Unique Unique Empty card for taming of unique monsters Dungeon boss & bosses of instance dungeons

 

 

Taming a unique dungeon or instance boss will be the most rewarding experience ever. Yes, it will be hard and only the bravest tamers will withstand the attacks of a boss while reciting the incantations necessary to bind a soul into a card. But remember: 

 

A level 150 unique creature will learn 1 passive skill from 6 skills, which is appropriate for one of its additional stats. On level 155, the unique creatures learn 1 more passive skill from 3 skills, which is appropriate for all their skills.


The skill distribution for the new creatures will therefore look like this:

 

  Rare / Special boss creatures Unique boss creatures
Active skills 8 8
Passive skills 10 10
Overbreed skills 2 2
Enchantment passive skills 2 2
Enchantment active skills 1 1
Unity 1 1
Passive skills for stat increase 0 2
