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.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Help with UC Magik

Hey all, I'm having some serious difficulty with Magik on the UC event quest. I don't really have a broad roster and actually no direct counter for her except a 4* Blade who can go through a lot but not one shot her (at least I can't). Is there any hope to defeat her or should I just stop burning my energy trying? My top champs are (5* r4) Colossus, Corvus Glaive, CMM, 6* Man Thing and recently pulled NF and Doom but don't have the resources yet to get them past r3. Also, I sometimes use my 4* BWCV and Cap IW (both duped and r5) but I'm also not sure if they would last long. I'm stuck and I really don't wanna miss out on the shards.

    I would suggest cmm if awakened only though :( Nuke here down as quick as u can.
    I used my 4* quake for like 90% of her health but I eventually mess up lolz

    Hmmm you mean getting to Magik with 20+ charges then going indestructible? That'd probably work but I don't know for how long, she trigger limbo eventually and the indestructible buff would expire. But I'll give it a go.

    But u know how to quake? And also build up cmm and bash through that magik man

    quake is a far better Magik counter than CMM

    Uh, didn't even think of her as I hate her playstyle... Sometimes I can nail it sometimes I get obliterated. I'll try a duel tho and give quake a shot

    Hulk(ragnarok) is beast counter for magik

    I think you can 4* Quake with parry-heavy—I used a R4 5* and managed it with plenty of health to spare. May get a little dicey, but the 4* should have enough health to survive depending on her rank.

    I would suggest getting her to 23 charges, dexing to trigger buffet and then parry to reach 25 charges. Get the indestructible and smooth sailing i hope

    I think this is the best strategy if you aren't comfortable with quake. make sure you trigger buffet on something that isn't binary ignition, so you when binary trigger, your buffs stick

    Use your blade for danger sense

    You can Nuke the fight with Blade, AA, Corvus and CMM. Just don't hit Magik when she has limbo active.

    Blade is an easy one shot. Just parry her to death. She will never gain a bar of power and therefore no limbo or specials. This is quicker with deep wounds and also SES synergy.

    Next option is AA, get some bleeds on with a heavy, parry a few times to stack poison and then heavy to convert to neurotoxins. Get 3-4 up depending on sig level and then no limbo. You can be unlucky with the debuffs and push her to limbo before you get neuros on.

    If you want a relatively standard fight, then use your CAIW; instead of the usual aim of landing an SP2; use parry-heavy as much as possible, with maxed pacify/Petrify masteries. Keep your distance when she's got power and try to push her above power thresholds using your SP1, as it won't trigger Limbo.

    Add in the right science synergy champ (Hulk/Ghulk) even as a 4* to halve her Limbo damage, and he should go through her.
