**KNOWN AW ISSUE**
Please be aware, there is a known issue with Saga badging when observing the AW map.
The team have found the source of the issue and will be updating with our next build.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
**KNOWN BG ISSUE**
We are aware of an issue with the seeding for the beginning of the BG season.
We are adding rewards to higher progression brackets to offset the additional grind.
More information here.
**Arcade is being extra tricky with his Murder Box...**
It appears Arcade has been non-cooperative in his approach to this month's side quest and presented his clues in a nonsensical order. Lucky you, Summoners, we have our best and brightest on the case and those clues should now be a lot more straightforward. While messing around in Arcade's files we came across a phrase, highlighted and bolded, with sparkles and pointy arrows: "the abode for the dead" ... Maybe that will help you along the way!

    Yeah he is a pain. But stark spidy is a good choice and what I used. Ultron would be good

    Magik makes him easy as long as you can get that first power lock. Who ever you use, just remember that he gains power when you block his attacks, so try to get him to his 2nd special because it's easy to evade.

    Actually bleed isn't the biggest issue - you either want someone who doesn't inflict bleed at all; or does it all the time. If you're constantly inflicting bleed, the degeneration damage drops surprisingly fast.

    Power Control is the main thing - this is the third event quest in a row where Kaban have put Kinetic Transference on someone with a multi-hit ranged SP1 (I think it's their new favourite node). So if you block his full SP1, he has more power after it than he did before. Fun, eh? So if you can't fully Dex his attacks, Cable (particularly with his Awakened ability) just gains Power at an insane rate. That's why Sparky is great; plus of course his Heavy Power drain.

    I guess you don't have a 5* OG Vision, who worked beautifully for me. Any other Power Control champs can be helpful. I haven't tried him, but I suspect that Dr Octopus would work really well. Vulture maybe; but obviously not Hawkeye. Less obvious choices like Rogue or an Awakened Morningstar could taken his buffs away.

    Class disadvantage, but an Awakened Daredevil would help deal with Cable simply powering up by Kinetic Transference, at least.

    Cable was the hardest battle for me on this months EQ. Either i failed to dex sp1 and took heavy damage or i blocked it and he got to sp3 way to fast.

    Magik solved it for me but i still had problems reaching sp2 before dying.

    Failed a couple of times trying to get a charge with my 4* Corvus, so just decided to cheese it with 4* Ghost + Wasp synergy, and Ghost works well for that quest anyways

    Wow, I didn’t realize this fight was supposed to be hard. Used a variety of champs to beat him, never died once.

    It doesn't effect robots so Ultron can bleed him away without any penalty.

    For me the hardest battle is havok. I just don't have the right counter for him

    Took me a few tries with different champs but my 3/45 Sparky was the best solution - dex all specials, evade or parry + power drain, and natural class advantage, intercept when possible. I one-shot him with Domino (RHulk syn) once but most times i tried with here I died when he was around 20%. If either of these 2 got KO'd he'd be low enough to finish off with CG and gain a charge. Just glad they put him at the start and not the end of the chapter!

    You can always take a few blocked sp1’s and try and push to the sp2. Stark Spidey or an evade champ would be ideal though.

    I used quake, but I use her for like every hard fight so I don't know much counters. Void is a good one though, blocks regen and power gain without even having to touch him
