Broken Shard is the 21st expansion for Pox Nora. Launched in october, 2012, the expansion was focused on developing the lore started in previous expansions, and was also an experimental cycle that was advertised as "no midterm release". This as response to complains about the relatively high amount of midterm releases, which were legendary runes.
- The last 150k gold champion is released. In this case, was Shallaxy, Trusted Courier, a Shattered Peaks champion. With this, all the factions had their own 150k champion.
- A new single player campaign, Army of Slags, is released.
- For the first time, 500'000 Gold champions are released to the game, Ryv the Ruthless (champion) and Vallassa the Elder (champion). Although obtainable through Gold, during a week starting the day of the expansion release, the players could buy a bundle which would include 3 boxes, and pick one or another champion.
- There were not midterm releases for this expansion.
- This expansion had a fairly larger amount of runes than previous expansion (76 runes), and was explained future expansions would have a similar amount of runes, and not legendary releases as long as the sales for this release were good enough.
- The expansion had a heavy focus on developing themes, old and new alike.
