Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.

**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

The Mysterious Contest: Part 2

Mystery Solved!

The mystery unfolds in this month’s event as you discover the source of this great disturbance in The Contest... the arrival of Knull, God of Darkness and creator of symbiotes, can only mean the beginning of an impending Cosmic Eclipse. In the nick of time, the Summoned Symbiote makes his much-anticipated return, along with its fellow symbiote, Anti-Venom, ready to defend the fate of The Contest against the dark master.

    Question. I thought if we did everything in September it would unlock October.

    But we have to now do something everyday to get a key to enter the side quest?

    Yes you unlock October's side quest that means you'll have access, if you didn't complete any of the September's Week 5 special objectives that means you can't access October's side quests (you won't have the October's special objectives to claim Antibodies or Keys).
    The keys is for entry limit purposes only for the repeatable quests.

    Really good rewards except from the fact that some people are in an iso drought and will go for 4 star shards and can’t max the symbiod
  • Options

    Does the symbiote have any synergies? Will it be useable post this event? Can we name it?

    To add context to my second question, I do mean useable as in they can be serviceable in some content at the bare minimum, and won't sit there only for collection purposes

    Question,what rarity will the symbiote be? Also is the marauder crystal being combined with the symbiote crystal?

    So, am I right in thinking that provided I've done 1 set of the September objectives (in my case cavalier), I would not unlock the opportunity to require any more rewards from the October event by doing a lower tier of the September objectives (eg uncollected) ?

    What class type will Steve be?

    Am I the only one that inferred that by doing all of the side objectives for each rank in Sept. we would then get to pick 1 of the 6 quests for each rank each day? Instead we get the choice of one rank from one quest a day essentially.

    Considering the build up of this spanning two months instead of 1, its kind of a let down imho.

    I mean not really, considering you get 28 entries into the repeatable quests.

    That means from the October side event as a whole you could get:

    24k 6* shards


    53% of a t5cc


    56k 5* shards


    9.8 million gold

    Among many other things.
