Mechanics & Themes
Argent Depths is a set based on influence. Cards whose influence requirements exceed their cost in power, once a rare oddity, are now something more common. A lot of non-power cards make players gain influence, rewards them for doing so, or both.
Argent Depths was first revealed on June 9, 2020 in DWD's announcement article for the set, showing the alternate-art version of Rolant, Iron Tyrant. The art for Rolant's regular version had been teased by Scarlatch in Eternal's Discord a couple days before the announcement, though there hadn't been indication the card would be from a new set.
Beginning June 12, 2020, DWD sold community spoilers in the community store for 35,000 influence each. Spoilers were available in limited batches, with 2 additional batches released in the following week, and sold first come, first served.
DWD would email the spoilers to their purchasers, which could then be shared with the game's community in any reasonable manner.
Argent Depths Pre-Order Bundle
A $49.99 Argent Depths pre-order bundle was available from June 17, 2020 until the set's full release. It included:
- 1 box of Argent Depths (32 packs that can be opened on release day)
- Nightmare Argenport premium Sigils
- 1 Argent Depths premium cardback
- 1 Rolant, Iron Tyrant premium avatar
- 4x alt-art Rolant, Iron Tyrant
- 1,800 gems
- 1 Draft Ticket (3 if ordered from the Eternal Web Store)
On June 17, prior to Argent Depths's full release, 63 commons and uncommons from the set were incorporated into Draft Packs in a special Draft Preview. These cards were immediately playable in constructed formats, though the cards could only obtained through draft during the preview.
The Heroes from the Depths preview event ran from June 19–23, featuring 10 2-faction Heroes from the new set. Players would enter with a 2-faction deck, and four copies of the matching Hero were added to the top half of their deck in each game.
The event could be entered any number of times, with each run costing 4,000 gold or 300 gems. Runs would last until a player had either 10 wins or 3 losses, and rewarded packs of Argent Depths based on win record.
This event also introduced an experimental new take on Leaderboard rewards. Separate leaderboards for each 2-faction pair tracked each player's best run in that faction, and each gave additional rewards to the top-ranked players which included a copy of that faction's legendary Hero card.
Six in-game and platform achievements were added with Argent Depths.
|All Aboard!||Trigger Siege Train's Entomb for 5 or more copies of a single card.||75||50||10||✓|
|Borrow Courage||Imbue a unit with at least 10 Health||75||50||10||✓|

With Argent Depths' release, the original Scions were replaced with the cycle from the new set in Eternal's onboarding tutorial campaign and its completion rewards. This update removed the crafting restriction on the old reward Scions (and didn't implement them on the new ones), making these tutorial rewards no longer indestructible.
