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.

Halls of ISO... ever happen?

So Halls of Fortune for gold and Halls of Healing for potions... but have they ever done a Halls of ISO type quest? ISO is the worst bottleneck for me as a newer player. 1.5 million gold and no ISO to upgrade with.

I noticed Seatin on his F2P account is also having this issue. Is this a somewhat new balance/bottleneck issue that was not around during the first couple years?

Curious about the answers to these...

Oh also if anyone has advice on the best was to farm ISO please share them ;)

    Halls of fortune give pretty good iso

    Well I mean an event aimed at extra ISO. Halls of Fortune are aimed at Gold, Halls of Healing at Potions.... so why not a Halls of ISO special event? Seems like a no Brainer.

    Well personally I’ve never had a lack of iso. And I’ve never had an ally mates who have either, or heard anyone on forum say anything about it. Perhaps it’s just not as in demand as gold or potions are

    The whole of Act 4 is a Hall of ISO.

    Heck, even Act 3 gives plenty of ISO.

    Arena is also a hall of ISO due to the amount of PHC which gives you 2/3* dupes, which converts to class ISOs.

    I used to have iso problems but that was because I was getting new champs like crazy, over the last month been mostly getting dupes so iso is starting to build back up. Just gotta be patient and it will work itself out.

    Not ranking 2 and 3 star champions helps too. Not saying you do, but I save ranking and leveling 2 and 3 stars only if I have iso starting to expire. Don't worry about rating, it's arbitrary anyway.

    I recall when kabam said they would make class iso much more accessible a year ago. That also never really happened

    If you aren't introducing it into normal questing, it should by all means be issued for daily quests. If there's specific class paths on maps, class iso should also be mandatory

    They are in all the event quest completion and exploration rewards.

    I just got to Act 4 and have done the first chapter of it.

    Newer players do not have that luxury. I am saying the bottleneck is there for new players until Act4 or so (I should be breaking through this point soon as I started Act 4 recently... but for new players there is a bad bottleneck at the start for ISO).

    Anyways just was asking if they ever do this (other then say the Grandmasters Free-For-All which gives a bit more random class ISO).

    They ran an iso quest about 2 years ago. I think it was around Valentine’s Day. I think the picture for the quest had a heart on it.

    I'd advise continued grinding of story, event and daily quests to get your isos rather than wait for an event that's happened once in the last 3 years (if it did, I don't recall the event).
  • Use an awakened Ronan and just grind the venom boss in act 4. 6 energy gives a 1300 iso and like 1-1.5k gold

    I am guessing you started playing a year or more ago? I am sure you saw that I am a brand new players and also Seatin who is, in my eyes, near pro is also have the same exact issue with his F2P new account (said s in his videos recently).
    This is exactly what I figured, this was not as bad an issue in the pasty (most likely due to no 5* or 4* champs in the very early days? or at least fewer of them so less demand on ISO at early game).

    I'd advise continued grinding of story, event and daily quests to get your isos rather than wait for an event that's happened once in the last 3 years (if it did, I don't recall the event).

    Oh I would not "wait for an event"... I play everyday (too much a day :D). I was just curious if they ever do it and if any other newer players had noticed this bottleneck like I did (though again Seatin had the issue as well so that is enough for me to know I am not the only one).

    Yeah I am Chapter 2 of ACT4 now... so soon I will be able to farm it more and grind completion.

    I sell iso daily. Once you get champs fast enough and keep getting duped you won’t worry about iso

    Yeah that is what I figured... only a new player issue. All long time players have more then they know what to do with... new players never have enough.
