Announcing Event Quest: Gods of the Arena

edited October 2017 in General Discussion
TIME TO SHINE
The Grandmaster is stepping up his game, Summoner. All are invited to compete in what might be the greatest contest yet! Fight your way to the top and you shall be rewarded greatly. It may b e difficult, but you’re in luck! Thor is looking for someone strong enough to fight alongside him and you’re just the pal he’s looking for. Work together to bash down any foes in your path, but be prepared for some new challenges and perhaps trickey along the way.

FIGHT TO THE DEATH
Thor may be without his trusty Mjölnir, but equipped with new armor and weapons he still proves to be a challenging foe. Gladiator Thor can dish out quite a beating and can become more powerful the better he fights. Keeping a high combo is key in unlocking his strengths and winning over the crowd.

Also entering The Contest is Hela. Fueled by death and destruction, The Battlerealm proves to be a place where she can grow her power immensely. As she controls the spirits of the dead, she gains fury buffs that last as long as she can maintain control of the dead.

Tell them what they’ve won!

This Event Quest has a new collectible currency called VALOR. This currency is part of the Champions of Valhalla Event. More info can be found in the events Forum Post. Amounts of VALOR earned can be seen in the rewards breakdown below. Speaking of rewards…

Rewards Update
We’ve updated the Heroic and Master difficulty rewards for the Event Quests. A more detailed look at these rewards is below, but here is a quick overview of the changes.

HEROIC
Completion Rewards:
- Added 10x Tier 4 Class Catalyst Fragment Crystals

MASTER
Completion Rewards:
- Moved 1500x 3-Star Crystal Shards from Quest Mastery to Completion. You’ll now get 3000x 3-Star Crystal Shards for completing the quest.
- Increased the total amount of Tier 4 Class Catalyst Fragment Crystals rewarded to 21.
- Added 19000x Tier 4 Basic Catalyst Fragment.
Mastery Rewards:
- Increased the total amount of Tier 4 Class Catalyst Fragment Crystals rewarded to 24.
- Added 9000x Tier 4 Basic Catalyst Fragment.

Master Key

The Master Key is the item required to unlock Master difficulty. Usually only obtainable by mastering Heroic difficulty, the key will now be for sale in the store for Uncollected Summoners. This shortcut allows Summoners to save the energy of playing through Heroic and immediately access Master difficulty. The key will be available for 300x Units.

Energy Changes

The Energy costs for Master difficulty has been reduced as well. Chapter 1 is now only 1 Energy per tile. This has been reduced from the usual 2 Energy per tile.

Q&A


How long does this quest run for?
This quest will be starting on the 1st of November at ~10:00AM PDT and will run until December 6th at 10:00AM PDT. Those attempting Legends runs will have until November 15th to 100% explore both Heroic and Master difficulties.

You must update to the new 16.0 Release to be able to see and participate in this quest. The update will be available Wednesday, November 1st.

Are these reward/energy changes permanent?

Yes! Aside from Valor which is only around for the event, the increase to rewards is permanent and so is the energy reduction.

I can’t see some of the rewards under “View Rewards” Are they missing?

No, they’re there! Currently we can’t fit all the rewards in the preview and this Event quest has a lot more items than usual. So on Master Difficulty in particular, a few of the rewards won’t be visible when you preview the quest. You will still get them however.

How do I get the Legends title associated with Master Difficulty?
The Legends title and rewards will be given to the 100 players who 100% explore HEROIC AND MASTER difficulties in Gods of the Arena the fastest. Just like recent Event Quests, this quest will take advantage of the Time Attack system we’ve put in place for our Monthly Quest Legends Program. This means that the players that completely explore Heroic and Master difficulty the fastest within the first 2 weeks of the event being live will win the title. Summoners that choose to purchase the Master Key will have the ability to compete the Master Difficulty first, but must still complete the Heroic Difficulty as well to qualify for the Legends Title.

More information on that can be found here: https://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/27/time-attack-legends-program

In addition to this distinction, these first 100 will receive the following rewards:
#1-5 - 3x Tier 4 Class Catalyst Crystal
#6-100 - 1x Tier 4 Class Catalyst Crystal--

    Love the news Keys. And. Just sad stil not more tier 2 aplha But Els. Alot better.
  • Horrible. I can't stress enough how Kabam keeps kabaming players. HELLO???? the game is moving to 6* , but these rewards are only great for newbies. For vets, who cares really about any more 4* shards? The least they can do is to dramatically increase 5* shards or t4cc. This is so dumb.

    Really??
  • Jh_DezJh_Dez Posts: 1,031 ★★★
    Would have preferred master key to be like 200 units or free
    It being at 300 is overpriced
    Also prefer an increase in 5* shards that t4c frag crystal

    Master Key is a good addition but a bit overpriced tbh. 100-150 units would've been perfect.

    Or just another benefit of being Uncollected.
  • Always the ingredients is sell this and that. Now the key is for sale. No more a legitimate playing like buy buy and win. To be honest let the poor player and rich be equal in apportunities. Kabam but unbiased favour for you rich player. Thank you.

    A t4b for heroic?
  • StrategicStrategic Posts: 455 ★★
    I see 16.0 coming out tomorrow and yet I haven't seen any update notes anywhere...
    Did I miss anything?
    Cause I think an update should include bug fixes at least if not champs revisits etc. right?

    Why are the sig stones in the increased area when the number is the same as always? Also more T2A frags would’ve been nice but the extra T4B is nice.

    For those complaining about the new key, you could always do heroic and unlock master as always. You will be anyway if you want the valor.
  • Still no t2 alpha shards?

    True. Legends Runs will require it either way.
  • Still pissed off about NO NEW HULK. I got this boiling feeling of hatred in my heart about it. I AM ANGRY!
  • Am I missing something or didn’t they lower the T4B?

    Unless T4 Generic Catalyst = T4 Basic Catalyst and they basically just shuffled things around and we get an extra 9K shards?
  • Master key is stupid, this is gonna make legends run for the un-uncollected even more difficul than it already is!!

    Why hasn't this been released a week earlier like usual?? I've been looking for this info for a week!!
  • OK master key for 300 units is Stupid imo that's 10 full energy refills which is more than enough to auto play heroic for very little time and fair rewards 100-150 units is a much more realistic price only the very lazy will buy the key rather than the energy refills

    Seems Thor is SL 2.0 which means he is tech lol

    How? Why? They will make the least ammount of difference for legends runs as you need to 100% heroic anyway...

    As someone who has, for a verry long time, been using refills to finish heroic faster, i can tell you for a fact you need way more than 10 to 100% heroic, usually around 15-18.
  • True but you earn units along the way lol

    Lipstick on a pig. Made a big deal about being Uncollected yet still rewarding PHCs which give 2* champs. How about giving us Grandmaster crystal shards so at least we have that "Rare" chance at 4* or 5* champs
