The Reserve Vault is going to be Plariums answer for the growing problem of champion overflow in RAID: Shadow Legends where players do not have sufficient storage slots to collect more champions. The low storage issue forced many players to either feed their existing champions or promote and upgrade them even if they did not want to. The Reserve Vault will be featuring 300 new storage spaces and will be different from the current Master Vault. As per tradition, players will need to pay either Silver or Gems to upgrade the slots of the Reserve Vault but Plarium has promised that the amount will be lower than the amount used to upgrade the Master Vault slots. Only champions that are not equipped with Artifacts or Accessories will be allowed to be stored in the Reserve Vault. If they have any accessories or artifacts, a pop-up window will be shown to the player stating to remove the artifacts and accessories.
