Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.

Occult Labs - Epic Difficulty

I just want to say that this should be a permanent feature of the game, yes it is challenging, but I think that this is the perfect way to challenge yourself and your roster with minimal risk.

I have done both my entries and took in my top champs; 6* Hawkeye, 5* r4 Hype, 5* r4 Void, 5* r3 GR and a 5/50 Blade.

I must say that the RNG blessed me with 50/50 hard and easy matchups, but the node combinations were ridiculous! A couple rolls of the dice and i was able to get some more favourable nodes. This kind of content is definitely what i expect from the beginning of Act 6 and I love the fact that we can practice in this way, yes it is not for everyone and some may feel it is way too much effort for reward but then this is definitely not designed for those type of people.

As a few tips for those that feel this is challenging;

Please dont feel obliged to do the hardest difficulty, just do master which has similar rewards

Bring your top champs, boost up if necessary

Treat this like your AW path, be conservative, bait specials, use the nodes to your advantage

It is not the end of the world to quit out, at worst you are only losing 250 5* shards, Man up, try again :wink:

As they say, the Symbiote will make this alot easier when fully ranked, take advantage of that to get your rewards.

I hope this added some light in what seems like a very dark tunnel!

TLDR; Occult Epic is hard but achievable, don't die, use the dice and acknowledge your place in the game.

    By far the best way to improve AW skills that are in such high demand by tier 1-3 alliances

    I agree, I am in t4/5 and it is amazing to test my skills and find quirky node combinations that might be introduced at some stage.
