**RESOLVED ISSUE WITH SIDE QUEST KEYS**
The game team has resolved this issue. Keys will be distributed via in-game messages and the quest timer will be extended.
More information and timeline here.
*This includes currently unclaimable keys as well*
**WINTER OF WOE - BONUS OBJECTIVE POINT**
As previously announced, the team will be distributing an additional point toward milestones to anyone who completed the Absorbing Man fight in the first step of the Winter of Woe.
This point will be distributed at a later time as it requires the team to pull and analyze data.
The timeline has not been set, but work has started.

Best way to use Archangel?

For me it's hard to get used to his unique fighting style, and I'm unsure if it's better to just parry-M-Heavy or rely on L1 and L2 for the poison, or anything else.

I also find his heavy attack "short ranged" and sometimes doesn't connect with the enemy even if the wings visually reach them. Any suggestion?

    In longer fights, I just attack with him and spam the 1st special to apply bleeds and poisons.
    Is fights against Magik for example, I parry and use his heavy's, trying to get 3 or more neurotoxins before she gets to 1 bar of power

    Thanks! how can you reach 3 neurotoxins before they reach one bar or power? and heavy attack almost gives them half a bar, and I'd need to place at least 3-4 bleeds to have some rng on that poison.

    I have petrify mastery, which reduces opponent's power gain by 30% while stunned. That way, an heavy attack after a parry doesn't give them that much power.
    Heavy attacks can apply up to 6 bleeds if lucky (but that will probably never happen). Still, even if they apply 2/3 bleeds it is enough.
    Then block some hits, and try to do 2/3 poisons on the enemy. And finally, parry and use another heavy attack. Against opponent's with poison debuffs, the heavy attack will replace only 1 poison debuff, and can apply up to 6 neurotoxins at once (which again, will probably not happen due to the chances).
    I usually do something between 1-3 neurotoxins per heavy that way

    Yeah, with 25% crit chance you'd have (0.25*0.4*0.5)^3 *100 = 0.012% Chance to trigger 6 bleeds on an Heavy.

    Thanks anyway, you cleared my mind about it, I was clearly doing it wrong before!
