Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

I used a soul boost. No, really.

So I was finishing up the Legendary side quest last night, and I actually used an actual soul boost like for realsies. I couldn't believe it. I've been basically trying to complete Legendary without revives, which would otherwisemake it a bit too easy for me, and some paths ere somewhat difficult for me to do that, cold snap Sasquatch for example. For those paths I've been bringing two champs for the path and one path for the boss. However, the poison path seemed easy enough that I decided to bring one champ - Omega - for the path and two champs for the boss, just in case. So I had Omega for the path, Sym Supreme for The Champion, and I brought Sorcerer Supreme as insurance in case I made a boo boo on the Champion.

It all went fine until I slipped up on Red Guardian and took an SP1 to the face. I finished the fight with just a sliver of health. But I thought since Diablo wasn't a super hard fight, I should give it a try. I got him to about one third health and then I slipped up again and died. No more poison immune, so time to exit and just try again.

Then I thought about the soul boosts. They always looked stupid to me, but I decided to give them another glance.

Soul of Envy: The Attacker is Immune to Poison. Whenever a Poison fails to apply to the Attacker due to an Immunity, the Defender gains an Unstoppable Buff for 7 seconds. This Boost can only be used in the "Hades Invasions" Quest.

Well that's worthless. Who wants the defender to be going unstoppable all the time? I mean, if I had some counter to unstoppable buffs...

Huh. Well that's worth a try, since I'm overflowing with the soul currency anyway. I slap Soul of Envy on, go in with Sorcerer Supreme, and well what do you know, spamming SP1 and just nullifying the unstoppables was a piece of cake.

So yes, the Soul Boosts are not totally worthless. I found *one* use for them. Now if only there were 131 other uses for Soul Boosts, I would have something to do with all this Lost Soul currency.

    disgusting. imagine playing the event the way it was designed. normie

    They should have had a bonus objective for clearing every path *with* soul boosts.

    I’ve used one! There are a couple paths in which my roster has better answers for the downside of the boost than the debuff. I think there’s actually, potentially, some fun to be had in deciding which one you had better answers for. But it just didn’t play out that way

    I'm always serious. And don't call me Geez.



    Found you, alliance leader. I’m Pinheadious in game. This whole post made me laugh. Also, I’m not usually on the forums anyway, so if you respond to my comment and I get pinged, I won’t know until the next time I visit the forums.

    That side quest was extremely easy

    I played epic. I used the coldsnap and bleed immune boosts on the last stage. Made it easier i think. Did a few runs and had problem with sasquatch and masacre prior to the boost. Immune roster ain't good enough.

    Not having a shock immune, I used that soul boost every time. Warlock and his infections took care of the rest.

    This is what I did to 100% the Side Quest too! I used the Poison Immune Soul Boost with Sorcerer Supreme to spam specials.

    You can also use the Shock Immune Boost with a reverse heal champion. I used Torch and Void and I had fun cheesing those paths.
