Announcing: Occult Labs

edited October 2018 in General Discussion
The Symbiote Supreme has commandeered M.O.D.O.K.’s old Laboratory and he has been transmuting the experiments into more difficult rituals using his sinister magic!

Test your luck and try your best fighters against a number of completely random Opponents, all with their own randomized Buffs! Beware, Symbiote Supreme, intrigued to push you further this time, has set it so the amount of random Buffs can also vary! Will you luck out on a usually tricky Opponent with only a single random Buff, or will the seemingly easy Opponent have the power of 6 random Buffs on their side? Remember to utilize the Randomizer to re-roll the buffs on the Opponent if you are not confident with the results; although, do keep in mind that the Randomizer will not re-roll the amount of fights on a single fight.

If you need a refresher on how M.O.D.O.K.’s Lab worked in the past, take a look at our forum post from the first time they ran, but read on to find out the differences!

The Lab will remain open for rituals between October 3rd at 10 AM PDT until November 7th at 9 AM PST.

Occult Lab will Feature a Few Changes in this Round:

Duration/Frequency
- 24 hours cycles instead of 12
- 2 entry limit per day, not restricted by difficulty

Auto Fight is back in the Labs, and you can use it if you so wish.

Regardless of difficulty, each fight will have a chance to have between 1 to 6 randomized buffs.

As with last time, ALL the Champions will be randomized on every node. This list has been updated to include Champions that have been released since the last M.O.D.O.K.’s Lab.

Were the Random Buffs altered by the Symbiote Supreme’s magic?

Yes actually. The list of Buffs have been slimmed down significantly, and includes a few that were not in the last Lab. He has also removed the HP and Attack Boost Pools and replaced them with a single global buff per difficulty, so the challenge faced will be solely with the other buffs on the fight! These global buffs are as follows:

Easy Global Buff - Iso-Infused (+25% Attack and Health)

Medium Global Buff - Iso-Infused (+50% Attack and Health)

Hard Global Buff - Champion Boost (+100% Attack and Health)

Expert Global Buff - Champion Boost (+200% Attack and Health)

Epic Global Buff - Champion Boost (+200% Attack and Health)


General Buff Pool

Consists of a more refined list of buffs from last time. This list is largely made up of buffs that you would see in a monthly quest, except for:

- Buffs that only work on one specific Character and Class specific Buffs (such as War Machine’s “Second Line” Buff or “Mystic Wrath”)
- Additional HP or Attack Buffs outside of the global boosts mentioned above.


Here’s Where You Can Get More Precious Randomizers:

- 8x in a welcome message on October 3rd, when Occult Lab goes live.
- 8x per day in the Game Store for 2500 Gold each.
- A quest chest with 1 or 2 that can be claimed with every successful completion of an Occult Lab (4x per 24 hours, maximum)


No energy cost but LIMITED ENTRY!

It still costs 0 energy per step to traverse the Occult Lab, however, you will only be able to enter the Lab a total of 2 times every 24 hours.

IF YOU ENTER A QUEST AND QUIT OUT, YOU WILL LOSE ALL WITHHELD ITEMS AND YOUR ENTRY WILL NOT BE REFUNDED. This means if you enter, decide you want to play another mode, and quit, you’ll lose that entry. If you run out of entries you will have to wait until your entries reset to enter again.


REWARDS - Symbiote Supreme’s Generosity

Below is a list of what you can expect as a rewards for each completion of Occult Lab. Keep in mind that since this is 1 path, completion will also equal exploration. Also keep in mind this is per instance, meaning rewards can be earned a maximum of 2 times a day for the duration of the event.

  • S0 it's 2 entries total not 2 per difficulty?
  • Nice to see these side events becoming viable again for end-game players with the “Epic” difficulty and more challenging content. Hope that continues on!
  • RaganatorRaganator Posts: 1,324
    Sounds good. Love the labs. Small criticism: epic difficulty should guarantee a 5* sig stone.
  • GmonkeyGmonkey Posts: 366
    Just confirm can we run epic 2 times per 24 hours and get double rewards or only once and must do another level?

    Thanks

    Are these rewards for 1 month,1 week,2 week , I didn't actually get that

    For ALL of them between October 3rd at 10 AM PDT until November 7th at 9 AM PST.
  • WerewrymWerewrym Posts: 1,702
    Ok... I have to say. These labs look to be 100x better than the MODOK ones... How are the drop rates divided up on the crystals? I'm assuming there isn't an equal chance for everything.

    second this question. rewards are SWEET if its per difficulty.
  • Denta89Denta89 Posts: 39
    Worst case is 17,5k 5* shards or 70k t2a shards, looks really nice

    It's 1k t2a fragments, so it'd be more like 35k t2a fragments.

    It says per day. So I'm assuming we get a total of 2 entries to be spent on whatever difficulties we so choose.

    When will there be an opportunity to obtain Awakening Gems without grinding Arena?

    And what does "Auto Fight will remain ON" mean???

    2 cystals per day for 35 days =70k t2a when you get every crystal 1k t2a shards

    Ok yep, I'm stupid,
  • Since there are a few people asking, I'll clarify:

    You can enter the labs twice in a 24 hour period. If you are seeking a challenge, you can attempt the Epic Difficulty twice. Not quite at that level? You can try a difficulty you're comfortable with, and use the second entry to try the next difficulty up.

    Is there a comparable difficulty for epic. Say dungeon level 7 map 3 or 4? I know depending upon the buffs but this will help us know.

    Thanks

    Twice a day, so 70K is correct

    clearer. different question now..... can you enter epic twice in the 24 hour period?

    I mean he literally told you what you asked in your quoted portion. Enter labs twice in 24 hours and attempt Epic twice.

    Sure we can do the same quest twice but do we get the all of the rewards both times?

    I think that would be a logical assumption.
  • RO53TT1RO53TT1 Posts: 125
    I really think those rewards totals are what's in the crystal that u could get, don't think it's u get all that, may be wrong but that's how I read it.
  • RO53TT1RO53TT1 Posts: 125
    Also I'm still not clear 2 entries per day right so not 2 entries per difficulty. So there's what 5 or 6 difficulties so u can only choose to enter 2 In a day or the same difficulty twice, is that right.
