Upcoming Angry Birds Epic “Under the Cloud of Night” Event

Oh snap!  The Samurai Pigs are the worst!

Oh snap! The Samurai Pigs are the worst!

When I loaded up Angry Birds Epic this morning to pummel the Golden Pig I noticed a new event had been announced. This new Epic Event is called, “Under the Cloud of Night” and as of writing it starts in just under 50 hours. Rovio also just Tweeted about it:

Unfortunately, that is about all the info we have at the moment. If anyone here has more info or general thoughts please share them in the comments below.

I have to say, I really enjoyed the last Puzzles & Dragons event. It’s a fun way to earn Mastery points and stars to increase ones XP. I do agree with this comment though:

With that said, the fun is there even without competing against your friends. Are you looking forward to the Under the Cloud of Night event?

maybe a two tiered competition similar to what AB Friends has now would work. Would also be great if all nesters took the time to add their user name from here to their leaderboard so maybe we could see who we were up against.

Not a fan of ninjas. You spend the whole game leveling your birds up, then you have to fight these things that ignore heavy damage. I don’t know if I have anything weak enough to take out Ninjas. I hate them. They are the most frustrating part of the game.

Skulkers/Druid/Rainbird combo works great against ninjas. Use Skulkers’ Tricksy Trick on Druid first turn and all pigs will instantly have Thorny Vine for 3 rounds. Add in the damage from Rainbird’s attack and they go pretty quickly. I have the Beep set for my Blues, making it pretty easy to take out Shoguns.

At least the Event enemies haven’t been as hard to fight as normal ones. Maybe they will be somewhat easy.

@dr-omega i totally agree with you, i hate Ninjas! levels i played with them inside were the most awful ones.. i hope it won’t be too hard! Cave 5 is an example of this awful kind of Pigs.

That said, I’m looking forward for that event. Last one was really fun to play. and indeed it’s easier to gain snoutings to increase Mastery.

I forgot to mention the other advantage to this combo, which is having 2 healers. After hitting all pigs in the first turn with Rainbird’s and Druid’s attacks you essentially have both birds to use for healing for 2 out of every three turns while the pigs are taking tons of automatic damage. Unless, of course, you want to use the rage chili on Chuck to end things more quickly.

Skulkers costs 150 gold if i am correct, that is alots of gold. i have 10 stamps but i blew all gold for the machine so lol, i could have got the skulker. Nice combo tho.

By Timeywimey

Even if you don’t buy Skulkers, Blues still does really well against ninjas with the Robot set. They’ll dodge his regular attack but 45% of the time the Robot set will still do 75% damage against all enemies (which is 666 HP for my level 7 Skulkers). In other words, the Robot set’s Beep attack works on pigs with dodge ability.

Hi @timeywimey –Thanks for the suggestions! I’m copying your suggested sets of birds to the forum:

Cool! Just for fun, I replayed both of the ninja caves today (8 & 9 on Cave 5) with just Skulkers and Druid (no pig or borrowed bird) and was able to easily complete them both with 3 stars. My health never even got below the halfway point for either bird.

@timeywimey — Are you to cave 11 yet? Those are some real nasty ninja battles. You didn’t mention what level you or your birds are. Would be interesting to know.

By Timeywimey

I’m about midway through cave 9 right now. As far as levels, I’m the max 37 overall. My Druid mastery level is 8 and Skulkers are 7 (Tricksters, which is my most commonly used Blues class, is at 8). My Rainbird is also 7. My Druid and Rainbird combined do over 800 damage-over-time every turn.

By Timeywimey

Even if Skulkers doesn’t get in a beep attack that’s still over 2400 damage on EVERY enemy in 3 turns. Add in 1 successful Beep attack during that time and it’s over 3000 total per pig over 3 rounds. Most will be long dead before that much damage.

By Timeywimey

@MVNLA2 I’ll definitely have to do that this evening when I get home from work. Been meaning to join for a while but always forget to do so when the time is convenient.

@timeywimey — While you’re at it you should stop by the Bloated Pig (under community on the gold bar) for some free food and drink, not to mention convivial chat with lots of nice people.

@Timeywimey — If you are over 13 years old, you should consider joining the nest. I’m sure you would like it.
BTW — If someone is a member of the nest, you can send them e-mail notification of your comments by @mentioning them. Use the name in () after the name in blue. For example you notify me by e-mail by using @MVNLA2. Unfortunately you won’t get any notifications if you are not a member.

combination: Samurai (defense and triple attack), Rainbird (heal, low damage for the ninjas and poison), Capt’N (he’ll take care Shoguns and increases attack power but only for Samurai).

Note: I still don’t have Capt’N, so maybe I’ll give Pirate or Tricksters a try.

Liking this so far! At least these ninja fights don’t take as long as the wave fights in the other events so far. I let the Shogun knock out my druid and only got 2 stars; need to protect her better!

I’ve been using the druid and tricksters all the time, usually combining them with rainbird or samurai, or both in the Master Ninja level that lets you bring 4 birds.

For the leaderboards, I think fighting the shogun is my best bet if I can get 3 stars against him. The master ninja is almost as good, but the black ninjas seem to be a sucker play unless I can’t find any better ninjas.

Nooooo!! Not the shogun whith the overpowers critical power. It needs to be dispelled because the critical hits do DOUBLE DAMAGE. The 10 day wait time or 240 hours or 124400 minute wait time is really annoying.
