Version 5.3.0 & Server Update - Building Blocks

Greetings Olympians,

We have just release version 5.3.3, and performed a server update which means that you can no longer connect to the server with a version below 5.3.0.

Please note that on iOS and Windows, 5.3.2 is the latest version. 5.3.3 contains an Android only fix and is otherwise identical.

Version 5.3.0 changes the way Invocations work, so that it is possible to stockpile Invocations, and therefore to receive Invocations from sources other than instant Gem spending in battle. It is a further step towards implementing a change to the way the Island Map works, hopefully arriving early next year. This will include the ability to gain Invocations from islands, but it won’t be the only way to gain them.

Please leave feedback in the dedicated thread.

Best,
- Your Olympus Rising Team
