The 2.8 update includes some pretty big changes to the game, such as adding two new in-game items (SpellSword and Healing Flask), removing potions, numerous balance changes, and multiple UI improvements.
There are also new skins, including the “Vaquero" skin for Ringo, which can be crafted with essence or purchased with ice right now. The “Horus" skin for Idris and the “King Glave" skin for Glave are also included in this update as teasers with a promise of them “coming soon" in the future. If you want any of these, it’s time to start saving up your precious cards, essence, and ice.
