The Prescription for Pestilence
April 8, 2022

Greetings Commander,


Pestilence Scourge Event

Put your entire roster on high alert because Morgan Le Fay's Pestilence Scourge Event is set to arrive soon for Commanders Level 50+ on April 13th at 5:00PM (PDT). For the Pestilence Scourge Event, you can unlock a 3-Star Morgan Le Fay during the event through the Milestone rewards with a Run Score of 500k Points. If you’re not able to hit 500k points, you can still unlock Morgan Le Fay with a Run Score of 425k Points by earning additional character shards via the Rank Rewards, but these will be delivered after the event ends.


We’ve been doing a lot of internal testing and that has led to us lowering the difficulty levels to unlock Morgan Le Fay since it was first announced. Instead of requiring Difficulty 5, most players should now be able to unlock Morgan Le Fay at Difficulty 4, provided that enough Scourges are enabled to earn the required points. Instead of requiring Difficulty 6 with Web-Warriors and/or Dark Hunters, this requirement was lowered to Difficulty 5. Keep in mind that the level of challenge you experience will still depend on the combination of Scourges that you select, allowing for a custom encounter for each player.


We'll have special rewards only for the first run of this Scourge Event, so start preparing your roster now and don't miss out on prizes for your pursuit of Morgan Le Fay. In the meantime, you can begin to prepare with an overview of how Scourge Events work:


Run Scores

During a limited-time Scourge Event, clear all 10 nodes and earn the most points possible towards your Run Score. You'll have unlimited Run Score attempts and a Run can be canceled and restarted at any time with no penalty, so go for the highest score possible by attempting multiple runs.


Difficulties & Scourges

Customize your runs by selecting a difficulty from 1-10. Higher Run Difficulties will narrow the character traits you can use, but they'll reward more points. You can also earn additional points by activating Scourges, which either bolster enemy teams or hinder your own. Keep in mind that nodes 5 and 10 for Difficulties 5 and above will require specific characters to fully complete them. Also note that the highest difficulties are not necessarily intended to be fully completed yet, so don’t worry too much if you can’t get to Difficulty 8+ in the first run.


Unlocking Characters

Each Scourge Event will have a minimum point total to unlock the character. We mentioned Morgan's minimum recruitment Run Score above, so make that your base target. You'll earn Horseman shards from Milestones and by climbing the Rank Reward leaderboard. These rewards can be earned again in subsequent runs of the same Scourge Event, so you’ll have more opportunities in the future to get Morgan Le Fay all the way up to 7 Yellow Stars.


Red Stars for Horsemen

Also new for Scourge Events is the method of earning Red Stars specifically for the Horsemen, which can be achieved through these methods: 

  • The first method is through the Rank Rewards, giving extra incentive to earn the highest score possible
  • The second method will be through Dark Promotion Credits, as a new slot will be added to the Elite Store featuring only the Horsemen characters (players will need to have reached player level 42 in order to unlock the Elite Store)


Red Star Promotions for Morgan Le Fay and the Horsemen will not be available via the Red Star Orb or the Elite Orbs.


Darkhold Red Star Featuring

While you're slaying enemies in the name of Morgan Le Fay character shards, don't forget to power up the other members of the Darkhold team. If you're looking for more Red Stars, we'll be featuring Scarlet Witch, Doctor Strange (Heartless), and Wong in Red Star Orbs on April 14th at 5:00PM (PDT). Each of these three characters will have an increased drop rate of 5% each during this time (15% combined), so make sure you dive into Red Star Orbs to create a little Darkhold magic.


Event Store & Gold Phase Bits

We hope everyone had fun and stocked up on valuable resources during the Celebration Incantation anniversary event. If you still have some leftover Cauldrons, make sure you spend them before the Event Store closes on April 10th at 5:00PM (PDT). Also going POOF on April 10th are Gold Phase Bits, so grab Black Bolt's and/or Nick Fury's "S.T.R.I.K.E. Anniversary" Costumes in the Costume Store before then, as Gold Phase Bits will be converted into Costume Credits on that date.


Elite Store Additions

Starting with the launch of the Pestilence Scourge Event on April 13th at 5:00PM (PDT), direct Red Star Promotions for Morgan Le Fay will be available for purchase in the Elite Store using Dark Promotion Credits. Horsemen will have a new dedicated slot in the Elite Store so they will not reduce your chances of getting Red Star Promotions for other non-Horsemen characters (they will all share that same slot when released in the future).


Also heading to the Elite Store on April 14th at 5:00PM (PDT) is Kate Bishop, the Young Avengers' Helicarrier sharpshooter.
