Akora Play – Season 5: Trials of Ikithia Is Here!

Harness your Alchemist Essence as you battle opponents from across the realm to be among the first to discover the ferociously powerful “Archos”, an extremely elusive beast known to protect the remote ancient forests of Tesuto. Only the most gifted Alchemists will have what it takes to bind with this mythical creature; sharpen your skills and prove your strength!

It’s that time, Alchemists! Akora TCG is proud to introduce Season 5: Trials of Ikithia, now available on Akora Play! Be on the lookout for our official special event schedule hosted by Akora TCG which will include familiar formats along with some exciting new twists and themes!

Many Alchemists of note and potential, including yourself, have traveled great distances to reach the realm of Tesuto in the hopes of advancing their skills and becoming an Alchemy Crusader! Tesuto is a central hub within Ikithia, and the enhanced Alchemy Essence it pocesses has infused the inhabitant’s, plants, and nature of this realm. Alchemy Essence flows like rivers and streams invisible to the average eye with many singular threads flowing through beings across all of Ikithia as they tap into their attribute-specific Alchemy Essence. You have finally arrived, do you have what it takes to overcome the trials that lie ahead?

New Mechanics & Updates

It sure looks like winter came early this year! Be sure to keep your Akora warm to avoid getting frozen by Magna-Kiiko’s new effect. You might think you’re safe inside, but Rozcrenn says otherwise! Let’s hope you never have to deal with the new Battlezone freezing mechanic. (Rules Processing Guide 23. Status Effects List)

Do you need a little more oomph from your armaments? You may want to check if they have a “Relactify” effect. Power up your armament with your Relic Shards, but be careful… they might become a big target for your opponent! (Rules Processing Guide 9. Relactify)

The debate is finally over! Stone of Akora is officially considered a “Relic Shard”! They do NOT take on the attribute of your Akora, and you still cannot start a match with a Stone of Akora in play! (Rules Processing Guide 21. Stone of Akora)

Not even the strongest of swimmers can withstand the power that water brings in. Look out for new “Aqua Counters” as well as permanent Alchemy Zone deactivation and Dark Zone deactivation! (Rules Processing 23. Status Effects List)

With the addition of more cards that can activate in the dark zone, we have made the rules for such interactions much clearer. For more in depth information/ rulings on cards activating in the Dark Zone, check out Section 7 of the Rules Processing Guide.
