Alliance Quest S10: It’s Open Season, Starting November 24th, 2022!

Greetings Summoners!

We’re coming up on the start of Alliance Quests: Season 10, and we’ve got some big changes coming your way! From adding Choice Nodes to higher Maps, loads of new Modifiers including for Map 8, changing rewards, and plenty more, there’s lots to go over! Let’s get started!

Choice Node in Maps 4-8:

Our biggest change to Alliance Quests this season is the addition of Choice Nodes to Maps 4-8!

At the beginning of each of these Maps, each player will be able to select one Buff that will grant your AQ team new abilities!

These Buffs last one day, so you can try a new Buff each day, or stick with your favourite!

Buffs:
  • Broken Measures: Each time the Attacker inflicts an Armor Break or Shatter Debuff, they gain an Aptitude Buff increasing Fury, Armor Up and Precision buffs by 10% for 10 seconds. While under the effect of this Aptitude, the Attacker gains 5% of a Bar of Power each second.
  • Preventative Measures: Each time a Fate Seal, Stagger, or Neutralize effect is applied to the Defender, the Attacker steals 3% of a bar of Power from the Opponent. Whenever the Defender's Buffs are Nullified via Fate Seal or Stagger or fail to trigger due to Neutralize, the Attacker gains a non-stacking Flourish Passive, increasing Combat Power Rate and Ability Power Rate by 10% for 10 seconds.
  • Critical Measures: While the Attacker has any Precision effect active, they Passively gain True Accuracy, ignoring Evade and Auto-Block effects. While the Attacker has any True Accuracy effect active, their Damaging Debuffs have a 20% increased potency.
  • Hurtful Measures: When an Exhaustion, Fatigue, or Petrify Debuff is applied to the Defender, also apply a Non-Stacking 20% Potency Taunt Debuff, lasting 10 seconds. While the Defender is under the effect of 3 or more Non-Damaging Debuffs, the Attacker gains a Fury Passive, granting a 20% Attack Rating.
  • Defensive Measures: While Blocking, the Attacker gains Block Proficiency based on 50% of their Current Armor Rating. While the Attacker has at least one Armor Up Buff, performing a Well-Timed Block Power Burns the Defender for 15% of a Bar of Power, dealing Direct Damage proportionate to the amount of Power lost.
  • Prowed Measures: While under the effect of a Regen, Basic Attacks have a 35% Chance to grant a 20% Passive Prowess, Max: 10. These Prowesses are removed after Special Attacks. Activating a Special Attack while under the effect of any Prowess effect inflicts the Defender with a non-stacking 50% potency Concussion Passive for 8 seconds.

  • Dawn of Protection: The Defender gains Indefinite Protection Passives every 14 seconds reducing Damage by 30%. Remove one Protection Passive from the Defender when they are struck by a Medium Combo Ender, the final hit of a Heavy Attack, or final hit of a Special Attack. After a Protection Passive has been removed by one of these Attacks they cannot be removed again until reset. Attack actions are reset after completing each one once.
  • Dawn of Intensity: The Defender gains Indefinite Fury Passives every 10 seconds increasing Damage by 50%. Remove one Fury Passive from the Defender when they are struck for the first time by a Medium Combo Ender, the final hit of a Heavy Attack, or final hit of a Special Attack. After a Fury Passive has been removed by one of these Attacks they cannot be removed again until reset. Attack actions are reset after completing each one once.
  • Piercing Pursuit: When the Attacker Dashes backward the Defender gains a 10% Pierce Passive, Max: 5. Intercepting the Defender removes all Pierces gained by this ability.

  • Demigod Essence: Every 14 seconds the Defender gains an Unblockable Passive for 7 seconds. Striking the Defender or hitting into their Block while they don't have Unblockable pauses the cooldown timer for 1 second. This cooldown timer is also paused during the Defender's Special Attacks.
