CONTEST OF REALMS

Start: April 7, 2021 @ 10AM (PT)
End: May 5, 2021 @ 10AM (PT)


Platinumpool would argue that this party will never end - but fear not, Summoners - we will make sure you’re not stuck at one of Platinumpool’s parties for eternity. Platinumpool is fussing, but no, I will not repeat Platinumpool’s rant, no matter how much he wanted me to.

Quest TL;DR:
Complete Solo Objectives > Claim Keys (from Solo Objective) > Open Quest > Run Path(s) > Earn Rewards > Repeat




Solo Objectives and Getting Key

So, you will have to claim Keys by completing particular Solo Objectives. A new Solo Objective (with Key) will unlock EACH DAY, so we won’t ruin the surprise. Once you find out what you have to do to complete the daily Solo Objective to claim a Key, do it, and claim the Key. These daily Solo Objectives will be open until the end of the event once they unlock. YES, YOU CAN DO THE SOLO OBJECTIVES ANY TIME AFTER THEY APPEAR AND/OR ACCUMULATE KEYS, IF YOU WANT.

Note: You will have to play other parts of the game in order to complete these Solo Objectives, e.g. Arena, Event Quest, etc.




Unlock Quest (Paths)

One Key will unlock the Quest once only!

Then, use the Key to unlock the Quest. The Quest will require NO ENERGY to complete. You can only bring in three (3) Champions this time. In the Quest, you will see seven (7) paths. It is YOUR CHOICE to either do the paths, or you can take the straight path to the Boss (yes, there will be a straight path to the Boss). But, if you skip the other paths, you will also skip the rewards on those paths. Simple.

In case you quit the Quest before you finish it, any rewards you have already earned will still be yours to keep; but you will not get the Key back.

Note: Fights along the other paths do contribute to the other Solo Objectives (in addition to the above daily ones) so it would be wise to do them, if you can!

Randomised Fights, Rewards and Boss (Limited Pool)

The seven (7) fights along the paths will be randomised daily, from a limited pool. The one (1) Boss will also be randomised daily, from a limited pool. The seven (7) rewards nodes along the paths will also be randomised daily AND when your finish (defeat Boss) the path. This means if you do the Quest multiple times in a day, the fights and rewards will be randomised each time you finish (defeat the Boss) the Quest.

IMPORTANT **Images below are intended to show Quest paths structure only. Champions and reward items will be randomised from a limited pool, per above.






Global and Other Buffs

KINGDOM OF WAKANDA BUFFS

Mighty Charge - 1: While performing a Medium dash attack, the Defender Purifies all active Debuffs and becomes immune to future Debuffs until the dash ends.

Running On Fumes: While close to the Defender, the Attacker gains a Fatigue Debuff every 3 seconds, reducing their Critical Rating permanently. Staying far away from the Defender causes these Fatigue effects to gradually fall off.

Schadenfreude - 1: Each time the Attacker is inflicted with any Debuff, the Defender gains a Fury Buff granting 120% Attack Rating for 6 seconds. This Fury does not stack multiple times.


Difficulties and Universal Key

This Quest will be available in 4 Difficulties and the Keys are universal (there will only be one kind of Key!) so you can use the Key to unlock whichever one Difficulty you want to do:
  • Heroic
  • Master
  • Epic
  • Legendary

Your Day-to-Day

So, your April (and a bit of May) days will look like:
  • Complete daily solo objective to claim a Key
  • Unlock Quest (same Quest; refreshes daily/path completion) with a Key
  • Run path(s); defeat Boss; earn rewards (Path Rewards and eventually, Solo Objectives)
If you run the paths every day, you should be able to complete all the Solo Objectives (get all the rewards there) and also gain an assortment (randomised) on the path rewards. As the path rewards are going to be randomised daily, you will not be able to predict and calculate the max gains there - sorry.

Rewards

**Note that the Path Rewards listed below are the pools from which the path rewards may present daily. So, these are the possibilities of rewards that you MAY see along the paths daily. There is NO GUARANTEE of any particular reward showing up at any exact node or exact time.


Important Note: Rewards

Rewards are credited to your inventory directly and will not be presented to you in a dialogue box at the end. Again, the rewards are going to be credited to your inventory directly as you collect them along the paths and will not be displayed in a dialogue box again at the end.

    So, a mix of MTI and barons war?
  • SquirrelguySquirrelguy Posts: 1,000 ★★★★
    So in a Platinumpool event, none of the rewards are Platinumpool crystals?

    Honestly, I’m okay since I already snagged myself a Platpool last year, but I’m a little surprised. Other than that, this looks like a super fun event and different enough day-to-day and from other events to be interesting all month through. Congrats on solid game design!

    I’m waiting for the day that some lucky summoner opens their side quest to show 7 paths, each with 300 6* shards
  • RenaxqqRenaxqq Posts: 518 ★★★
    House of Iron? Gamma Horde? Sounds like Marvel Realm of Champions...
  • KnightZeroKnightZero Posts: 1,059 ★★★★
    So this event has to be done daily? Or can we accumulate the keys?
  • RenaxqqRenaxqq Posts: 518 ★★★
    And what's autoplay button?
  • The_Sentry06The_Sentry06 Posts: 6,438 ★★★★★
    So you can rerun the same paths as many times as you enter the quest and get the rewards?

    I think you can accumulate the keys, but it would be suggestible to do the event on daily basis Bcoz of Drop rates of rewards!!

    Nvm. Misread the quest. Seem like a good quest if you get decently lucky and the objectives give some guarenteed value. Need someone to the math though.

    are we getting more Platpool crystals anytime soon? I was hoping for some seeing that Platpool is kinda prominent here but I can't find anything. I've been missing the last piece for 6 months now lol
  • MaxtheSilentMaxtheSilent Posts: 412 ★★★
    So once I unlock it I can run each path on the same key that day? Or do you have to pick just one path per key?
  • The_Sentry06The_Sentry06 Posts: 6,438 ★★★★★

    You can run as many paths as you want. Each path has I believe one enemy and a path reward.

    where the fabulous rewards? need body
  • DrenlinDrenlin Posts: 618 ★★★
    Looks like you enter run whatever paths have rewards you want, possibly al of them, then head for the boss. Real rewards are in the daily objectives
  • SkyLord7000SkyLord7000 Posts: 2,201 ★★★★★
    So everyday you get 7 path rewards? That sounds WAY better. Lot of grinding though. :/
