# Changes in the compensation system
We have improved the compensation system for receiving duplicates of a 7th Arcane Star from Arcane Chest VII. Now, if you draw a 7th Arcane Star for a hero who already has 7 stars, you will receive 150 Gold Tokens in exchange. You can use Tokens in the Token Shop to purchase Arcane Stars for the hero of your choice. We will also significantly increase the currency exchange rate for Arcane Chest VII. You can now immediately buy 100 Gold Tokens for 2500 chest currency. And that's not all!
With the start of the Arrival event, you'll be able to receive points in Stages for opening Arcane Chest VII.
Strengthen your favorite heroes and get even more points in Stages!
# New Hero: Gerda
Gerda is a Northern Vanir Mage. Magic attacks of this forbidding fairy freeze enemies into blocks of ice and slow them down with frosty currents. A flap of her wings helps the allied Vanir absorb magic.
* You can get Gerda via the Hero Pass
# New Hero: Scara
Scara is the first hero from the new Guardians of Order faction. Deadly attacks of this accurate sniper blast the sand, hitting multiple targets. The fewer enemies remain, the worse her scarabs sting. Scara does not leave the battlefield even after dying. She will rise out of her Canopic Jar to keep fighting alongside the Guardians.
* You can get Scara in The Arrival event
