Summoners, we recently encountered an issue with the Alliance Quest Setup Phase Starting Timer that may cause the Setup Phase Starting Timer to display erroneous information, though we are working on a fix for it as quickly as possible. Additionally, if the Setup Phase does not let you plan your days in advance, you will be able to once the Event officially begins on the Alliance Quest Start date.

For clarity, the next Alliance Quest Enlistment Phase will begin on December 5 at 20:00 UTC, regardless of what the in-game timers display.

The next Alliance Quest Start will be on December 6 at 20:00 UTC. This is when Summoners should be able to enter each Map. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue.
Alliance War Season Rewards will start to roll out to Summoners very soon. These will take a while to get to everybody, so do not worry if an Alliance Mate receives their rewards, but you haven't yet. We thank you for your patience.

Act 7 was a treat!

I spent last weekend grinding out completion of act 6.3 and most of 6.4. I spend Saturday morning taking down the grandmaster with some skill. Spent about 1k of units. I was so excited for all the rewards and the time to relax and play just the monthly stuff again.

I was just looking into act 7 and decided to mess around and complete the first 3 chapters itemless and thought, well might as well keep going.

Act 7 was such a fun part of the game and made me really enjoy fights, nodes and bosses significantly more than anything in act 6. I have always dreaded exploration but this time I am pumped for some act 7!

Anyone that completed act 6 should have no fear what so ever going into act 7.

    Dang we’re waiting for 7.2, while this guy has fully completed it

    Lol yeah totally my bad. Even when searching for some guides on 7.1 I kept putting act 7 tips and not act 7.1

    Yeah, it was a big relief compared to Act 6. Can't wait for 7.2

    I did the same thing that you did about a month or two ago and I had a mixed opinion. I enjoyed that it wasn’t as difficult as some of the annoying act 6 stuff but it felt too easy for the most advanced story content. What I would prefer in regards to 7.2 is that it would be more difficult than 7.1 but not because of bs fights. More difficult content is preferred but not super niche annoying content.

    I completed 7.1 to 100% without spending much. It was so fun. And now I'm looking back at act 6, and I've barely done anything. I don't feel like doing it, but will most likely have to. Might just wait for 7.2 first and after start on my act 6.

    Holdup, 1000 units on the grandmaster or on the two chapters in general. I had ghost so I did 6.3 and 6.4 in about 600 units not to mention I had love potions to heal my champs.
    Just 1000 units on the grandmaster. I probably spent more in 6.3 then 6.4 honestly aside from the grandmaster fight. And to be honest, I probably could take the grandmaster down now in 3-5 runs, but I was so antsy to complete 6.4 that I started my grandmaster fight when I woke up and played laying down lol. Totally my bad on that. Woke up the wife with some obscenities.

    7.1 was boring cheese fest everywhere..

    There is no satisfying you people, jfc.
    Either it's too easy and a cheese fest, or too hard and you're forced to spend units. There needs to be a middle ground

    Yes, let's now hope they will make 7.2 as fun as 7.1, and not make it insanely difficult to satisfy those who ask for harder content

    By fun, do you mean easy and no skill needed?
    By fun I mean nodes that players can somehow benefit from. For me fun is a node that is challenging, requires you to play specifically but it has some benefits for players. And imo Act 7.1 has focused a lot on this and on class benefits on lanes, which I like. I admit it is subjective tho.

    For me node combos like Void+long distance relationships aren't fun. It makes the fight crazy difficult at high PI, but thats about it. Dying in 3 seconds if I stay in champs proximity for more than 3 basic hits isn't fun for me. I understand if someone enjoys that, but I don't.

    He means less bs, if you screw up you're not always dead, and a versatile roster is great. It's sort of like a variant that has Rol health pools. It takes skill, just not a ton of units like act 6.
    While I liked act 7, you really don't need a versatile roster to do it

    i'm sure the bluntness of a few will ruffle some feathers, but personally i explored Act6 after exploring 7.1 and was a bit more satisfied with the challenge Act6 presented.

    now i am by no means a masochist, but Act6 forced me to make decisions on who to bring on certain paths, it involved planning and/or ranking up of champs i might not have done otherwise.

    for context, i'm terrible using Quake and mediocre at best with Ghost, yes i did have an r3 Corvus but couldnt bring him for every fight or couldnt get enough charges to be worth it.


    do i wish that Act7 starts to scale up in difficulty? guilty as charged.

    7.1 feels like cruising thru 5.1 the first time, lets hope 7.2 gives us that gut punch that was running into Masochism or Bane the first time we jumped into 5.2 or some seemingly unbeatable fight like the Collector was at first.
