We’ve been quietly working on a new addition to Museum Artifacts! When looking at the new horizon for DomiNations we’re looking at bringing additional value to players at all levels for the Museum.

We’re planning to implement Temporary Artifacts! These will be available for both Main and War Museum Halls, and like the name implies they’ll be able to sit in your museum for a limited time. Temporary War Artifacts will last for a limited amount of Wars, while Temporary Peace Artifacts will last for a limited time and will begin counting down when placed in your Museum.

These Temporary Artifacts are unique in that they will come unlocked with all five modifiers just like Legendary Artifacts. Temporary Artifacts can be obtained anywhere you can get your Legendary Artifacts. This includes both Episode and Season Pass Rewards on Free and Premium Tracks, Giveaways, War Chests, and More! This will be a great way for Players of all Ages to be able to try out these powerful artifacts.

The Temporary Peace Artifacts can be removed from your Museum Hall and returned to your inventory. However, should you do this the Artifact’s timer will still be counting down. Once the countdown expires, the Artifact will need to be removed from your inventory, if the Temporary Artifact is displayed in your Museum it will be grayed and remain there with no benefits added until you destroy it.

You’ll find unique Temporary Artifacts never seen before! But also Temporary versions of the Legendary Artifacts you know of now. In the case of a Temporary Artifact that shares the same name of the Legendary version, you will only be able to display one or the other. So for example, if you find a Temporary version of the Video Game Console Legendary Artifact but already have the Legendary version displayed, you will not be able to place the Temporary version until you remove the Legendary version and vice versa.

You’ll be able to display these Temporary Artifacts in three new Exhibit slots in both War and Peace halls so as not to disturb your current Museum setup. At launch, most Temporary Artifacts will have their modifiers set to Level 10 when obtained. However, not all Legendaries in the future will be set to Level 10, but you’ll be able to upgrade these at a 90% discount on all resources when they become available!

Very bad idea, please do not do this, we spent years to work on our museum & you will allow players who buy the pass to get the artifacts! We spent hundreds of hours in game mining and now we look like fools, this becoming clearly a pay to win game every single day, bad & terrible idea.

You'll have multiple ways to get these for free, this allows for players to have the opportunity to utilize some of the most powerful Artifacts in the game without spending anything.

- will there be a balance between offensive and defensive artifacts with a clear role set for each one?
- will there be equal opportunities to get any of those?
- will that be shown during spy?

I’d really like to believe this but more likely than not very rarely will the “higher tier” temporary artifacts be available for free (similar to how Troop Tactics, buildings, and directives are currently offered- rarely given and in low quantities).

This is a re-rollout of drone directives in disguise. BHG is trying to sell consumables- initially people will buy a few but won’t waste their money. We already spend enough on Troop Tactics and Buildings as consumables.

READ THE ROOM- stop trying to sell consumables, offer in game products that are permanent- councilors & legendary artifacts are a prime example.

For example… Useless Troop Tactics and Councilor packs available for free in top row, compared to “higher tiered” Troop Tactics and Councilor packs available for money. This will be the same business model Temporary Artifacts follow.

this is terrible. this is like the drone command charged directive with extra steps... what is next?! a slugish rolout of a uni leader with a capstone (with enormous time demands) that give a free temporary artifact lootbox i mean chest once a week.

we dont want this. put this energy into improving other areas and other things.

council: rolling out the other 2 councilers and giving more free summons over this joke of 4 a day. remove the free council pack and replace them with the bronze box to streamline things.

reduce times across the board, hell there isnt a oil research uni leader like with mansa musa and hiawatha for gold and food.

this as with all thigs here will fall on deaf ears and be bullheaded rolout of something we all have to tolerate😩.

What makes me wonder is that after a hilarious war artifact museum event where almost none got anything good, you release a pay to win set of artifacts.
In the past we were burning fragments in the events for hours but there was a reward. After 5 days of crafting you would get 2-3 equipments of 4 lines and some nice weapons and armor. In the last event most of players got nothing. And assuming that old players had some good artifacts, how do you believe that newer players will have the chance to reach us?

Stop trying to over complicate the game. Just be honest and sell legendary artifacts if that’s what you want to do! You make enough money already with the damn council re-rolls and all the events. Just stop already and spend time fixing bugs and maybe invest in new nations or something interesting in the world already created.

@Harlems369th Nobody has asked for temporary artifacts. EVERYONE - has asked for more museum storage. Will you be increasing museum storage with this roll out. Because that all by itself might generate some positive reviews…

One of the worst „innovations“ ever. Think your ideas to the end. You are saying we are getting temporary artifacts, all lines already unlocked. Lines, not multipliers, that’s the detail. Why should anyone invest approx 44K of blueprints to max a temporary thing out. Especially if the lines are your choice. Maybe 5% to 10% of your season pass modifications were interesting at all, i guess by accident and not intended. Museums are build, some people have 2 or 3 different O museums and 2 or 3 different D museums. No temporary artifact can optimize that situation.

As long such crap is part of your event passes I will not buy a single one.

Maybe if you guys just had a fixed, non-upgradeable 10% (or even 12%) for every line in every artifact it may have been worthwhile for a temporary item - to give the player a glimpse into the possibilities. Having an option to upgrade a temporary item - that starts at less than 10% - is ridiculous.
I generally try to see both sides of an argument and often lock horns with complainers on the forums but this time BHG you're on your own. smh.

Hahahahahahahahahaha. Absolutely zero truth in this. Nobody will be able to utilize any of the ‘most powerful’ artefacts without spending.

you deleted my previous comment which said the same as everyone else on this.
read the room. Players dont want this. Its just pure greed.

I want to see how this works in practice but my worse fear is it will make war a bit of a joke. We all been asking for improvements to museum to make it tidy, be this collections, safety blocks to prevent accidentally deleting ones you wish to hold, but this is not that :(

BHG, your focus of constantly rolling out additional revenue generating gimmicks has a sense of desperation. You are definitely starting to over complicate this game. Your desperate energy and manpower can and should be put to better use like fixing the most important element of the game, which is wars. Players spend money buying stuff for wars. Without the wars this game ends. Right now 33% of wars are mismatches. That number should be a wake up call. Mismatches cause less spending and activity. Then you have the replays. Players greatly depend on them not only to view war attacks, but to review new bases in challenges. Presently replays are not providing a true representation of attacks. Many reply’s are useles.
how about fixing the museum Artifact indexing problem? Players have been asking for this for years. Let’s face it, there are numerous aspects of the game that can be fixed, but your priorities are dictated by a desperate need to come up with revenue generating gimmicks.
