Wicked Powerful Witches
March 18, 2022

Greetings Commanders,


Agatha Harkness & Scarlet Witch

Flexing their mystic prowess along with Morgan Le Fay, Doctor Strange (Heartless), and Wong, are the battlefield-warping witches Agatha Harkness and Scarlet Witch. To prepare for their role on the Darkhold team, Scarlet Witch will be receiving increases to her base stats, as well as moderate updates to her abilities. But first, let's meet the Darkhold figure most likely to turn you into a newt…


Agatha Harkness

Agatha Harkness was born many centuries ago (or so she claims) and settled in the English colony of Salem, Massachusetts. There she formed her own coven of witches, hoping to freely practice magic in the New World. Agatha and her group were eventually driven out of Salem following the Salem Witch Trials and they settled in the town of New Salem, a secret magical community in what would eventually be known as Colorado. Agatha Harkness is one of Earth’s most powerful witches and through the years has often served as a tutor to humans and mutants endowed with magic or great power, including Franklin Richards (the son of Reed and Sue Richards) and Scarlet Witch.


Agatha has the ability to tap the universe's infinite store of ambient magical energy and manipulate it to a variety of effects. Through magical spells and phrases, Agatha can control the elements, project energy, manipulate dimensions, fly, and create force fields, just to name a few. She's assisted Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, and other protectors of the Darkhold in assaults against Morgan Le Fay and some of Earth's greatest mystic threats.


Agatha is a Support for the Darkhold team and her stats feature high Focus and Resistance to reinforce her abilities. She fortifies her teammates with Deflects, Barriers, and Heals. But Agatha can also reliably stop enemies in their tracks with Stuns from her Special ability, "Binding Enchantment," and her Ultimate ability, "Runescape." And take note that the Stun inflicted by her Ultimate ability specifically targets a Hero Mystic Controller and a Hero Mystic Blaster, which can come in handy in Arena. In fact, her kit features a lot of anti-Mystic bonuses, so keep that in mind if you're looking to mix and match characters on your Arena teams.

New Unique Gear Piece

It’s been a while since a new in-game gear piece was introduced (when Mysterio joined the Sinister Six ranks), and a new Unique gear piece is on the way. Tempered Osmium will first be found in Morgan Le Fay's gear tree and then will be used for various subsequent characters. You'll be able to find it in the same locations as other unique gear pieces (Raid Supplies, War Supplies, Purple Gear Raid Orb etc…) and we'll feature it as a reward in our upcoming Anniversary celebration (more information in a specific event blog very soon).


Mojo's Mayhem Season 17

Season 17 of Mojo's Mayhem is set to broadcast to a device near you starting on March 25th at 5:00PM (PDT) and the prizes for bringing in the Ratings are worthy of a chef's kiss. Rewards for the forthcoming season not only feature Teal gear rewards to help power up your roster, but also Storm's new "Classic" Costume. Don't miss out on Teal rewards and fresh threads for an Uncanny Mutant.


Raid Season Updates

Several updates are heading to the Greek Raids in the near future meant to give you even more rewards. On March 19th at 5:00PM (PDT), we'll be adding more milestones and increasing the total number of points needed to complete the Raid Season Milestones in order to bring you more rewards. Milestone rewards will also be updated with Teal Gear, more Armory 14 and 15 Orb Fragments, and other Orange and Purple Gear to improve your gear progress. And swinging into the milestone rewards for a limited-time will be Ghost-Spider character shards!


Then on March 21st at 5:00PM (PDT), we'll be removing the old Beta Raid Orb (featuring Villain Skill & Villain Tech characters) from the Raid Store. Make sure you open any remaining old Beta Raid Orbs, as they'll be gone for good after March 21st.
