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*
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.


  • Kabam offered the same unit deals for both Cavalier and Thronebreaker players? If yes, then it seems they’ve messed up again 🤦‍♂️
  • Kabam wants us to spend money on a virtual game that we don’t even own. And these are the best offers they can come up with? I guess they don’t want us to spend our hard-earned money on this game. Thank you, Kabam, for doing the right thing for once! Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
  • Trolls will be trolls, I guess. Even on Christmas Day! :D
  • Hope this is not another “working as intended.”
  • And yet Hercules boss in Cavalier monthly EQ was tanking our SP3. Which is why we thought that Hercules has the ability to trigger immortality buff the SP3 IF the SP3 has the potential to knock him out. That’s why no one reported about the “bug”. Because everyone thought everything was working then “as intended.” And once…
  • We had the same issue in our alliance. We 100% enlisted for the AW only to later on find the game saying that we did not enlist. 🤦‍♂️ With multitude of bugs and glitches surfacing and being reported in the game over the past several months, I doubt if Kabam’s going to take a look at this bug anytime soon.
  • Precisely. Either Kabam poorly worded Hercules signature abilities OR this is a silent nerf. Obviously, Kabam will say they poorly worded the abilities 😂😂😂
  • And let’s be frank - if Hercules is supposed to be dead when he gets hit by SP3, then it seems immortality buff pales in comparison to indestructibility buff. And that makes Hercules, a demi-god, a joke to Luke Cage, a mere mortal.
  • Lol. Nothing’s overdramatic where Kabam is concerned.
  • You said it yourself. Bishop. Or that wasn’t history enough for you?
  • I’m not trying to be adversarial here. Anyways, I’m done discussing about this because as I said before - Kabam calls all the shots here.
  • No Hercules isn’t trash now but he’s certainly lesser of an OP god that Youtubers had made him out to be. And yes, it’s strange that there’s an uproar over the “little tidbit changes”. But, it’s stranger that Kabam would care to silently make this “little tidbit change”. All this uproar proves that it would have done Kabam…
  • And nobody thought of questioning or pointing out this “bug” till Kabam decided to silently nerf… “fix” the “bug”? Not a single Youtuber? Nobody?? Even though such a “bug” was so obvious and glaring when fighting against Hercules boss in the monthly Cavalier EQ? And this proves my point - that there’s no point arguing over…
  • And despite numerous published Youtube videos showcasing this “bug” as one of the strengths of an awakened Hercules, Kabam came to know of this “bug” just now and decided to silently remove/fix it, without any announcement or advance notice? As if this “bug” never existed?? That’s a classic Kabam move, I would say. And…
  • Ummm….I fail to understand how the word “removed” can have the same meaning as “prevented from triggering”. By fixing the so-called bug, Kabam literally “prevented” the immortality buff from “triggering” in case of SP3 attack and did not “remove” it. When I read that immortality buff is “removed if struck by Special Attack…
  • Call it nerf, call it bug fix, call it what you will. I believe what we will all agree on is this - Kabam messed this up big time. Especially by deciding to take the silent route to "fix" the "bug". Which is exactly why players are questioning Kabam's true intentions.
  • Frankly, this can't be considered as a "bug" fix as Hercules signature ability clearly states - Once per fight when receiving damage that would result in a knockout, gain an Immortality Buff preventing death and making Hercules Unblockable for 9.00 seconds. Immortality is paused during personal Special Attacks or while…
  • On a serious note, Demonzfyre, do you work for Kabam? The way you’re championing/defending Kabam’s move, it makes me feel Kabam has promised to make you the next Summoner’s Choice Champion… 🤔🤔🤔😎😎😎 Let’s call spade a spade. Kabam messed this up real bad. They had ample time to fix this “bug” (that was showcased in numerous…
  • We don’t need compensation. Kabam should roll back the nerf and stop saying it was a “bug” and now is “working as intended.” Most importantly, Kabam should stop fixing “bug” silently and be transparent about it. Thousands of players grinded in arenas for days and spent $$$$$ to get their hands on Hercules. And one of the…
  • Exactly! There are several videos where Youtubers speak about and showcase this specific ability. Karatemike, KT1, and also Lagacy, who specifically explained how this immortality feature makes Hercules his #1 Cosmic champion, have all detailed this specific ability of Hercules. Let’s accept it - It was wrong of Kabam to…
  • Exactly! “Prevented” vs. “Removed”. A BIG difference there. Prevented means the ability won’t trigger. Removed means ability will trigger BUT can be removed (i.e. subsequently) with a special 3 attack. Let’s admit it. Kabam did a big boo boo here. And covertly too.
  • 🤣 🤣 🤣 TRUST Kabam to fix a “bug” of a champ AFTER whales (and non-whales) have spent $$$$$$$$$$ and countless hours grinding in arenas to get that champ primarily because of that “bug” 🤣 🤣 🤣 There are so many Youtube videos showcasing this specific ability of Hercules when he first came out. If this was a “bug”, how come…
  • Do we agree that the cutoff for six star Hercules was astronomically high primarily because of the hype and the high prestige, and not because we consider him the best champion in the game right now?
  • Of course! You’re absolutely right. When I say “best Cosmic champ” I mean, other than Groot. Groot is incomparable. He’s in a class of its own. The one and only!
  • Guess, I got very lucky. I’m not much of an arena grinder.
  • Popped open 15 Hercules cavalier crystals, in batches of 5. Got 6 star Thor, 5 star Jubilee, 5 star Ronan, 3 5 star nexus crystals, and this… For once, Kabam gods have smiled on me.
  • Yes, I’ve been having trouble with parry recently, especially at the beginning of the fight. Even when I block as usual, instead of parry triggering, the AI would go on to punch the bejesus out of me 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
  • Never mind. Though I never received the mail in my inbox re anniversary gift, I found the reward in my reward stash. Those who didn’t receive their 6 Year Anniversary gift yet, I suggest - look for it in your reward stash and it’ll probably be there. Hat tip: Kabam Support
