Map 7: King's Ransom - New Milestones, Rank Rewards, Glory Store Update, Reduced cost for Map 4-6

At long last, Map 7 is coming to Alliance Quests on February 16th! There’s a lot to cover, and not just about Map 7. Below, you’ll find all the details about Map 7, but first, let’s go over the goals for the new map:
  • Challenge the best Summoners and Alliances in The Contest
  • Create a Map that is more dynamic week-to-week
  • Create opportunities for Summoners with large rosters to let their Champions shine
  • Reward skilled Summoners with extra opportunities to succeed
The Map
While you’ll have to wait until February 16th to see the Map in all its glory, we do want to outline some elements you’ll be seeing in advance of that. You can also get a preview of the map here.

Sections
Like other Alliance Quest Maps, Map 7 features 3 sections with a Mini Boss between each one, and a Final Boss at the end of the final section. Unlike other Alliance Quest Maps, the transition between each section is through a Portal. You’ll want to make sure you coordinate with your Alliance to go through the right Portals! As for the number of paths:

Section 1 - 9 Paths
Section 2 - 10 Paths
Section 3 - 10 Paths

Encounters and Global Buffs
Like most other Maps, there are 3 available “variations” of Map 7 that will be chosen at random every time the Alliance Quest Event Begins. This will be the Map for all Alliances for the duration of that series.

Map 7 differs from other Maps in that these “variations” don’t change who the Mini Boss will be - it’s always Omega Red and Kingpin is always the Final Boss, but instead change the enemies and Buffs along certain paths. You’ll be bringing different Champions and taking different paths every week, if you want to succeed!

Map 7 will also feature 6-Star Champions! 6-Stars do not appear in any other Alliance Quest Map and will likely be who you face off against if you’re powerful enough to enter Map 7.

There are also 2 new Global Nodes (on top of a standard Champion Boost) to be aware of, both of which are randomly selected each week, and applied equally to all Alliances playing Map 7. There are two pools of potential Buffs that will cycle weekly: Ascendancy Buffs and Fury Buffs.

Ascendancy Buffs: Apply a 40% attack boost to one Class throughout the entire Map, a 20% attack boost to a second Class, and a 40% attack penalty to the subsequent class.
  • i.e. if the Buff is Cosmic Ascendancy: Cosmic +40%, Mystic +20%, and Tech -40%

Fury Buffs:
  • Juke: You gain a Fury Passive Effect when ending a Combo with a Light or Medium, you lose a Fury when ending a combo with the same attack twice in a row.
  • Reprisal: Well Timed Blocks grant you a Fury Passive Effect, but landing Medium and Light Attacks remove a Fury.
  • Counterstrike: Evading an attack using the Dexterity Mastery grants you a Fury Passive Effect. At 10 Furies, they are all consumed and the Opponent becomes Unblockable for 10 Seconds.
  • Foresight: Intercepting grants you a Fury Passive Effect.

To recap all of that:
  • Map 7 has 3 sections like all other Alliance Quest Maps
  • Map 7 has 2 Mini Bosses and a Final Boss like all other Alliance Quest Maps
    • Map 7 only has one possible Mini Boss: Omega Red. Kingpin is the Final Boss.
  • Unlike other Alliance Quest Maps, Map 7’s “sections” are connected with Portals
  • Coordinate with your Alliance Members before going through Portals!
  • Map 7 has “path identities” like other Alliance Quest Maps, but those in Map 7 will change between different configurations each week.
  • Map 7 features 2 Randomized Global Buffs: one that boosts 2 Classes and hinders another, and one that gives Fury Buffs for performing specific gameplay actions.
    • These Buffs rotate weekly and are the same for all Alliances.

    New Buffs
