Major Event

The King Has Returned


Once I was a great Mage, respected and feared all across Midas. Archons bow to my counsel, the wretched elves dared not cross my path and the dwarfs...? They cowered in their den, too afraid to awake my ire.
Then, I was cast out of this world into the Shadow Realm to rot and die, my name erased from the books of history, a shadow without form.
Unfortunately for my attackers, they failed gloriously in their work. Instead of withering away and dying, i thrived in the Shadow Realm, strengthening my powers and finding new and powerful beings to serve in my new army, my Shadow Legion.

Now I return to Midas, where no one remembers my name or what I have done, but they all soon will remember and never forget again... the King in Shadows.
-Vyramar, The King in Shadows, Master of the Shadow Legion


The Return of the King Event is scheduled to begin on 10th of June!


The King in Shadows has escaped from the Shadow Realm and began his assault on the Ranked Ladder in Runewards!
The powerful mage has sent copies of himself, known as the Heralds of Shadows, to face worthy Runeseekers across all levels of the Ladder and over the course of June,  players eligible to play Ranked Mode has a random chance to face Vyremer or his Shades in combat.

Once the Event will run,  a special quest will appear in your Quest Log, replacing an existing Quest.
Upon its completion, each player will receive a copy of Vyramar, The King in Shadows card, a new mythical mercenary card!

Additionally, you could join us on our Twitch channel, where we will launch a special 24/07 event channel in which the King in Shadows himself will be shown fighting and climbing the ladder all the way to Archon. The King himself is stronger then his copies and will prove especially challanging to our brave players!

Our Team will join in from time to time on Twitch to grant special rewards and do a few surprises of our own.

This special boss will fight at all levels of the Ranked system (Bronze, Silver, Gold and so on) and will randomly while players play in Ranked Mode. Winning against Vyremer or his Shades will each grant MMR just like playing against other players while losing will increase your opponent's MMR just like you!

At the end of the Season, if our brave players are able to reach higher MMR score then Vyramar, a special reward will be granted to all players of Runewards!

So prepare your finest decks, sharpen your greatest tactics and prepare for the greatest challenge Runewards has ever faced!
